Karnitas Korner

In one of the lesser known streets of foodie haven, Kapitolyo, is a little restaurant called Karnitas Korner. Don’t let the quiet surroundings fool you as the food is anything but. The space is quaint– perhaps good enough to seat 10-15 inside and a group of 8-10 outside. The walls are decorated with cool abstract…

Healthy Food Crawl 1: Wholefood Remedy

To start off my own version of Jason’s Quest for the Best, I’m going to be doing a series called Jellie’s Healthy Food Crawl. Lately, I’ve been more concerned with what I’ve been putting into my body, more concious about the increasing health risks given all the junk food I enjoy when treating myself. So…

Christmastime at Starbucks

Every year, Starbucks seems to get a bit busier with people collecting their stickers for the much coveted Starbucks planners.

Lucca at SM Megamall

Lombardi’s Authentic Italian

Lombardi’s is in the East Wing of Shangri La, right next to Green Pastures and Corazon. The place is nice– simple furnishing and a roomy interior. Nice place to dine with friends and have a chat. 🙂 the restaurants around them are always super crowded while Lombardi’s is almost always empty. I decided that I…

Wrong Ramen

Ramen is one of the current food trends, and while places like Yushoken and Ukokei take pride in their authentic Japanese ramen, Wrong Ramen thrives in the fact that they make ramen the “wrong” way. The two floor restaurant is located in the heart of Burgos Circle, BGC where a lot of great restaurants can…

Gelato in Manila

While artisanal ice cream has been around for a while, exploring the untapped flavor combinations such as green mango and bagoong (Sebastian’s) to perfecting more well-known flavors such as butter pecan and salted caramel (Carmen’s Best), gelato is slowly creeping its way into the picture. What makes gelato different from icecream would be that it…

Saint’s Alp

What I had: Large Jasmine Green Tea It was good—flowery with a good amount of sweetness as well as flavour—not too watery but also not too strong. Tasted a lot like how sampaguita smells so it leaves a nice fresh aftertaste in one’s mouth. There are two sizes of tea—small and regular. Also there are…

Black Canyon Coffee

General Impression When we heard we were having dinner at a place called Black Canyon Coffee, we weren’t particularly excited. Who really has a meal at a cafĂ© and has an amazing culinary experience? When we got there, however, we were shocked to see that the food was Thai cuisine and not the usual cold…
