Last year I went to Spain and had the best meals in San Sebastian. From our extravagant lunch at Michelin Starred Akelaŕe to pintxos bar hopping I loved it all. When I found out that Chef J.

Early Bird Breakfast Club

I love breakfast food but I don’t wake up early enough to indulge in a full breakfast. My usual breakfast is simply Greek yogurt with fresh fruit. When I was notified that an all breakfast restaurant opened in The Fort Complex I didn’t waste any time to try it out for lunch. I find itContinue reading “Early Bird Breakfast Club”

Dinner at Órale! Taqueria Mexicana

I’ve been wanting to try the food at Órale! for the longest time but somehow it always slips my mind with all the new restaurants popping up here and there.

Lunch at Wildflour Cafe + Bakery

For me bread is the reason why Inquirer calls Wildflour Cafe + Bakery the hottest restaurant in Manila. It was indeed hard to make a reservation even for a 1:00 pm lunch on a weekday. Luckily they took pity on our group and we got in. Located at the ground floor of the modern andContinue reading “Lunch at Wildflour Cafe + Bakery”

Dinner at Beso Cucina Vinoteka

Last June I went to Europe specifically to Spain, Italy and France. The trip which I’ve started to chronicle here  made me realize which cuisine I liked best based on the food I ate in those countries. In order of best to least it’s Spanish, French and last is Italian. Since I’ve been back I’veContinue reading “Dinner at Beso Cucina Vinoteka”
