Last February 21 I went to Century City Mall in Kalayaan Ave. Makati to see the mall and try Caliburger. Before I even got to my destination I was drawn in to Toby’s Estate just because I loved the look of the small store. It’s not everyday you see subway tiles used in Manila.
As a coffee drinker I’m so pleased that more and more serious coffee places are opening in Manila. The latest and nearest to me is Department of Coffee along Wilson St. in San Juan.
I am obsessed with good coffee that’s why when I was in Melbourne I tried to drink at least one a day from a different place.

One of the oldest sweet shops in Florence is Gilli located right across the Savoy hotel. So many types of candies! Ok… not tempted. OMG!! These cookies were just whatContinue reading “Florence: Caffè Gilli”
San Sebastian located in the north of Spain in the Basque country may not be as popular as Madrid or Barcelona but in the foodie world its the star of Spain. San Sebastian boasts of more Michelin starred restaurants per capita than any city in the world. I may be the only food blogger inContinue reading “San Sebastian: Hotel de Londres y de Inglaterra”
With nothing better to do I sought out one of the better coffee places as listed on this site. I plan to check out all those places eventually but the closest to me was 18 Grams in Mongkok.
