Hermanos Taco Shop: A Little Assist from TV


usually get stuck when deciding where to go.  ”Anywhere” seems to be the standard reply.  I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.  I found a pretty good way of going about this and it’s turning on the Travel Channel!  In my case, it was the Mexico episode of No Reservations and it was as good a time as any ...

Dimsum Feast at Xin Tian Di

Isabelo Garden Restaurant: Marikina Road Trip for Our 2011 Reunion


very year, my high school buddies and I meet up at least once a year.  It’s usually a Christmas / year-ender get-together and we almost always opt for some sort of a buffet meal.  I wanted something different this year and Isabelo Garden was a place that I’ve been hearing constantly.  My cousin was telling me it was the best ...
