Midnight Mercato at The Fort Part 2: Where We Taste and See “Wagyu” Beef


love steak.  There is nothing I like better than a medium-rare, moist, pink, juicy slab of beef – marinated, salted, and peppered to perfection.  There’s something so carnal about carne, so inherently alive with every rib, sirloin, T-bone, porterhouse and tenderloin perfectly grilled over hot coals or pan-seared and fried in a thick cast-iron skillet.  The problem is that a ...

Nav: Modern Thai Cuisine


have to come clean here.  I’m biased.  I’ve said it before, but I think I need to qualify this statement: I love the traditional taste of certain cuisines. I mean, the best way to eat anything for me is to eat it the way locals do.  Like, if I’m in Rome, you won’t see me putting ketchup on my spaghetti.  ... Read More »

John and Yoko: Christ, You Know It Ain’t Easy!


irst of all, I just love that line “Christ, you know it ain’t easy!”  It probably doesn’t have anything that’s remotely related to food.  So why did I put that line?  It’s from an old Beatles song called “The Ballad of John and Yoko.”  The concept should be a dead give-away, even to non-Beatles fans, that a restaurant named “John ...

And We’re Back + We Want to Sell You Something


iven that our old hosting service screwed us over, we took some time off to improve, to better ourselves.  After some seriously hot and heavy live chat support sessions with our new hosting service that for propriety’s sake we cannot share here, we’re happy to be back faster than ever before, with unlimited storage space and bandwidth for our ...

New Bombay: Finally Getting It Right


’m going to say it right off the bat: I love New Bombay!  Ever since I first tried it a few years back, I’ve always had a soft spot for New Bombay.  I have no idea how authentic or how close the food is with real Indian cuisine but I’ve just realized that I’ve been eating Indian food the wrong ...

Deliboys: Keep the Meat Coming


here are probably two things you need to know about me.  First, I’m a lazy driver. I wish I had a driver.  I’d get a few more winks and kill less cells with road rage for Manila’s finest traffic.  I probably won’t go out unless I really really need to.  Or unless I’m really really bored.  Really. Second thing, I ... Read More »

Midnight Mercato at The Fort Part 1: Where We Bash the Burgers


love burgers.  It’s beef, bread, and cheese – what’s not to love?  Nothing spells home and comfort better than a good old-fashioned burger.  In fact, I always order a burger when given the choice.  I’m in Canada, I order a burger.  I’m in Hong Kong, I order a burger.  Wherever in the world I’m at, I have had a burger.  ...

Toro Restaurant and Bar: The Deal Grocer Special


’m in pretty much a no-spending budget so I can’t afford to eat out as much as I did.  And I’m try to eat my fair share of quality places on a fair budget.  One of the deals I found Toro’s Degustation Menu on Deal Grocer. I don’t really know much about Toro, although my sister was saying Chef Sau ... Read More »
