One relaxing evening, after a not so relaxing time with my toddler who was running all around Bonifacio High Street; my family decided to try this new place beside Conti’s. I’ve heard of this restaurant for some time but this was my first time to try it out. Just from the outside it does look inviting and exuded a casual vibe.
Ryu Ramen and Curry: Underrated Goodness
Ground Floor, Jazz Residences, N. Garcia cor. Jupiter St., Makati City
With the slew of Ramen places in the metropolis, what would make one stand against all others? Is it the ambiance provided by the interiors, a delectable taste beyond description or simply a great and warm feeling brought about by hot soup, great noodles and everything in between?
One rainy afternoon, before my evening class, I decided to try this ramen place that truth be told, I’ve never heard before. Ryu Ramen was something new, and perhaps something worth discovering. Continue reading →
Buffet 101 at the New Glorietta
3rd Floor, Glorietta 2, Ayala Center, Makati
22 September 2014
On a whim my wife and I visited the newly opened Buffet 101 at the New Glorietta, we were enticed by the promise of an elegant and upscale buffet that they were able to deliver in their Mall of Asia branch. Their tagline of serving the same level of gastronomic experience as in upscale hotels is up for my judgment.
2nd Floor, Wumaco Building, BHS, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig
The problem with BGC is that the food scene has a very limited buffet choices in the area. If you are the kind of person who likes unlimited choices and selections, then BGC may not be the place for you. But things may be taking a turn for the better with the opening of Yakimix PRIME at Bonifacio High Street. So as a treat to my sister for finishing her review classes, we decided to take her out along with my kids to the newly opened buffet joint.
It had just opened for a few days, and they are on a soft opening basis but as we tried it out, everything is already in place and a lot of people were dining when we came. Continue reading →
Coca Restaurant: Thai Cantonese at SM Aura Premier
One of the unique things about the bustling food scene at Bonifacio Global City is the wide array of tastes that cater to anyone and everyone. With the recent opening of SM Aura, an additional avenue for the palate tasting types was again populated with several new choices.
Coca Restaurant, 5F SkyPark, SM Aura Premier, BGC Taguig
There is no question that the new SM mall caters to those who can afford to pay, and yes it really does feel a few notches above the rest. In one of our family lunches, we decided to try something new and something different. I actually chose the place on a whim, based on something I faintly remember reading online about the restaurant. It says that it was a Thai-Cantonese fusion restaurant. I like Thai food and Chinese food so perhaps both would be really good together. Continue reading →
Staying with my in-laws near Subic has always been a pleasurable escapade away from the noise of the city, given the vacation vibe that the area has, it’s expected that the food scene is as vibrant as the flow of tourists try new and different flavors it has to offer. CocoLime has been a staple for the locals and the tourists as well, offering a variety of Filipino and Asian inspired dishes. When we visit, we try to a come back each time as it has left a memorable impression on our palettes.
On this lazy weekday holiday afternoon, my wife and I decided to take our kids and have lunch in one of SBMA’s famous food joints. Continue reading →
Sunshine Boulevard Building, Scout Santiago cor. Quezon Avenue, Quezon City
21 December 2013
After a long hiatus, I will now be posting a review for a restaurant we tried one Saturday lunch. Due to the Christmas rush, our trip from Taguig to Tandang Sora took almost two hours, on our way home, with reservations whether we’ll survive the traffic or not, we decided to eat lunch first at Don Day, as we had wonderful food when we first visited a few months back.
