Fat Butchik’s

The Sims were invited to try out a new restaurant in BF last December: Fat Butchik’s. Butchik, owner and head chef, invited us to come over to see the place, try the food, and give our thoughts and feedback / constructive criticism if necessary. Fat Butchik’s is one of the many restaurants that are in…

Budget BGC: Go Bento

Working in BGC, it’s always a challenge to find affordable, non-fast food meal options. Almost any real food places nearby are quite expensive that it’s not practical to have your lunch or dinner there. There are several fast food chains around the fort but having fast food everyday isn’t good for your body. This is…

Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina

I’ve been hearing all about Silantro Fil-Mex Cantinaa from my friends. They go all the way to Kapitolyo to have a taste of their Mexican food tweaked to suit the Filipino taste buds. (if you’re looking for authentic mexican food, this isn’t it!) Staying in Mandaluyong for most of the week, you’d think that I’ve…

Crisp on 28th

I have mixed feelings about Crisp on 28th because it seems promising: nice ambiance, varied menu, healthier options, and dishes below 500 pesos. On paper, there were a lot of interesting things that if executed well, could have merited a higher rating. At times, I felt like the restaurant was confused, or it didn’t really…

Izakaya Kikufuji at Little Tokyo

I’ve always loved Japanese food. Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been eating at Japanese restaurants. Back in the day, we used to go to Saisaki all the time as well as several other Japanese restaurants in Alabang. Growing up, Japanese food was always present. Whenever I go to buffets, without fail I’ll…

Kos Greek Ouzeri

Time to venture up north to the place I used to go to almost every day for 4 years: college. I studied in Ateneo from 2007 to 2011 and though we had different food choices along Katipunan back then, the volume of restaurants and dining places has significantly increased! With the opening of UP Town…

The Butcher Shop and Pub

I’ve been wanting to try The Butcher Shop and Pub ever since I saw photos of the Porkchop and Beans floating around the internet. It’s a relatively new restaurant which made me want to try it so I can recommend it to other people! I decided to go there just last Saturday lunch to finally…

8 Cuts

After blogging about something healthy, let’s venture up north and explore one of the burger places that has been talked about by many: 8 Cuts Burger Blends. From what I’ve read online, 8 Cuts Burger Blends is by the same owners of Burger Bar in Greenbelt. They are known for not only burger customization but…

Ba Noi’s

I’ve never been a huge fan of Vietnamese food because I always found it bland and unexciting. Pho is something I associate with cold, sick days because of it’s light broth and flavor. I didn’t stop to think that maybe I’ve just been eating at the wrong establishment. With Ba Noi’s Kapitolyo being close to…

The Urban Farm

Upon entering the restaurant, you’ll already feel comfortable and relaxed with the airy and homey interiors. The place gives off a sense of joy and open-ness with the bright lights and cute decorations. It is a happy dining place. The farm motiff is seen with the picket fence, garden tools, potted plants, and the checkered…

Magnum Manila

I’ve been to the Magnum Cafe in Bangkok last year but wasn’t able to make my own magnum there. They stopped offering it after some time. They had other┬ádesserts there and it did not disappoint! This year, Magnum opened a cafe in Manila, in SM Aura to be exact. It is said that it’s not…

Mesclun Bistro

Bright and airy Clean and simple logo Urban decors The interiors are nice and bright. The restaurant has a small space but they manage to make it seem roomy and breathable. There are simple design accents that make the place likeable: the hanging light bulbs, the chalkboard with the specialties, and the wine display. This…
