Shi Lin: Another One Bites the Dust


ver notice that the Philippines is a trending type of country, especially in the restaurant business?  I mean look at the pearl shake phase where you had Zagu being commercially successful, then all those pearl shake stalls mushroomed about the Metro.  Then this milk tea craze started with the Serenitea’s that have ushered in stores such as Happy Lemon and ...

Maimee’s Garden Cafe: Tucked Inside Little Baguio


pparently, there’s been a “secret resto” in the San Juan area for the longest time and I was skeptical.  I love secret resto’s and I should’ve known about it, right?  After all, I’ve been living in the area for only 20 years now.  Still, the only thing that matters now is that I’ve tried the place. So the place is ... Read More »

Cab Cafe: Nothing to Write About


‘ve been having trouble finding a new place to eat because I don’t feel like driving some place too far.  I ended up remembering this new place right beside Charlie’s Grind and Grill in Kapitolyo that I keep seeing, but never really stopped to find out what they serve there, much less try their food.  No better time than now, ...

Gumbo: Chickening Out A Bit


or the sake of transparency, I just have to say that this is not my first time in Gumbo.  I just never really bothered to take good photos, but mostly, I just never bothered to write about it.  Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I have no idea what New Orleans cuisine actually is.  All I know is ...

Jake’s: Who Loves Steak?


love steak!  Like how Kel loves orange soda.  And I’m glad that I live near a place that serves quality steaks for a fairly reasonable price.  Thing is, I’ve been eating at Everything at Steak for god knows how long now that it’s a little embarrassing that the waitresses probably know me too well by now.  So I was really ...
