    DANS Restobar | Restaurant + Food Review

    DANS Restobar is an isolated restaurant and bar in the stretch of Shaw Boulevard that you’d never expect to love but will. It’s best to go there via car but if you’re commuting, it’s a walkable distance from Starmall. From the pictures, it looks like a huge bar that can house a good capacity of customers, but in the flesh, it’s more intimate and compressed – not that it’s an issue, though!

    Food & Restaurant Review: Borderline Food Park

    A LITTLE BACKGROUND STORY Jec and I try to make it a point to see each other and go out every weekend. His off days land on a Sunday and a Monday (night shift), so for me that’s Sunday afternoon. We rarely go out on a Monday because I’m already working by then while his shift starts on a Tuesday evening so he still has a day and a half to rest. The other day, however, we went out just because we didn’t see each other the day prior. Last Saturday, I went out with my family, and last Sunday, he went out with a friend. It was supposed to…

    Café + Food Review: Sweet Spot Café, San Juan City

    Hello, I’m polishing this post as I sit on the couch of the café, hoping I would get a better feel of the place. It’s currently 1:27 pm I walked from our house, so it was insanely hot outside. I can say their AC unit is ??! Less than five minutes in and I can already feel my body cooling down.  Last week, I started feeling the itch to work in a coffee shop. The urge was so strong that I actually Googled a bunch of Zomato listicles online. I haven’t worked in a coffee shop in a while and kind of miss the feeling. I can’t exactly say I’m more…

    Jec and I’s Valentine’s Day Date @ Galileo Enoteca Deli ?

    I know I’m a few days late, but it’s better late than never, right? It took me a while to decide if I want to publish this blog post or not because I only took a few and low-quality photos. But, at the end of the day, I decided to share with you all how Jec and I’s Valentine’s Day went because 1) I found a hidden gem in Mandaluyong that you might like and 2) I really enjoyed our date despite the mishaps. Yes, there were flaws! We had our date on February 13th since it was also his day off work. Anyway, this is how our Valentine’s Day…

    Bae Recommends: Muang Thai

    Do you ever have that one particular restaurant that you’ve always gone to ever since you were a kid? Well for my family, it has always been Muang Thai. I can’t exactly recall when my mom’s fascination for that restaurant started, but ever since I can remember, we would even go out of our place to eat there. Of course, it’s not your authentic Thai restaurant – it already has a Filipino fusion in it – but their food tastes delicious and which I’ve not yet tasted in other restaurants. This is not a food review. I simply want to share my thoughts on Muang Thai because I love that…

    Food Review: Din Tai Fung

    By now, most of you must have already heard of Din Tai Fung. If not, then, here’s an ample description: Din Tai Fung was founded in Taipei, Taiwan in 1958 as a cooking oil retail shop. In 1972, it transitioned into a full-fledged restaurant specializing in soup dumplings and noodles. The restaurant was soon winning rave reviews from all over the world. The tradition of Din Tai Fung continues today in its locations in the United States, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Philippines, and Thailand. I find a lot of people love it, judging from the number of customers one branch alone gets per day and from the…

    Bae Eats | Long Hair’s Lugawan

    Since we started dating, Jec wouldn’t stop telling me about this Lugaw place in the marketplace near them. Well, alright, it’s literally called Marketplace. I would say the place is kind of isolated from the products sold in the market because you have to know the spot to get there. It’s not really visible from the outside. This particular lugaw place is called Long-Hair Lugawan. Long hair because it was started and managed by a man who had, you guessed it, long hair. While busy with his grandchildren, his family continues to manage the business. To this day, their allotted tables have already extended to the other stores so I guess those other…
