A documentation of filling food trips, gluttonous pig-out sessions and my hit-and-miss attempts at cooking.

World Street Food Congress 2016: What to Expect

I am a big fan of food markets. If only I can blog about the ones I visited as quickly as I gobbled up the food they sell. :D Imagine my excitement when I learned that the World Street Food Congress 2016 will be held here in Manila! I bookmarked the webpage, copied the schedule and looked […]

The Agora Food Market at BGC: Food Lovers Assemble

Like mushrooms after a rainy day, food markets are sprouting everywhere. Bringing joy to the hearts and tummies of food lovers, so… basically everyone. Bonifacio Global City (BGC) is a favorite location for these pop up food paradise. Mercato Centrale’s Midnight Mercato being one of the more prominent ones. I immensely enjoy eating. Immensely. So when I learned […]

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Tilapia, one of the most affordable and easily available fish in the market, is usually prepared with a bit of salt then fried. Nothing beats the simplicity and ease of preparing Tilapia this way, with the crunchy, salty skin and flaky, moist meat. Every now and then, however, you’d want to try something a bit different that […]

Chicken Meatball

Chicken Meatball

I remember back when I was still working at an office, whenever the diner has meatballs on the menu, what I’ll be having for lunch is pretty much decided. I mean, who doesn’t like meatballs? However, they only serve pork meatballs. Nothing wrong with pork meatballs, but I’m really a chicken kind of person. Sure, when most […]

Jatujak Thai Restaurant: Food Bargain

Jatujak Thai Restaurant: Food Bargain

Ever since I started cooking, I am no longer able to tolerate fastfood as much as I used to. That’s why when we eat out, we try to go to a place that doesn’t churn out meals faster than you can say, well… “fastfood”. We’ve always been curious about the Thai restaurant, Jatujak. After our trip […]

Abe Restaurant at MOA, Where good friends dine

Abé Restaurant Review: Good Food for Good Friends at Abé

I like the idea of dining family style or what I call the “salu-salo factor”. This was a consideration in picking a restaurant when a couple of our friends from Singapore visited. That and, of course, they should serve Filipino food. So we came upon Abé near the entertainment block of SM Mall of Asia. […]

Mercato Centrale’s Midnight Mercato at BGC: Almost the Ultimate Night Food Market

I was watching Ian Wright’s travel show on TLC. He was somewhere in China slurping on a bowl of soup with great gusto. Made me miss our night food market adventure during our trips to neighbor countries. Where at every turn there is something new, something odd, something you’d like to try, neither really knowing nor caring what’s […]

Ginataang-Tilapia Recipe

Ginataang Tilapia

When I was a kid, I used to hate the Lenten season. Apart from not having anything to watch on TV (we didn’t have cable then), I also hated that we only ate fish and vegetables. It is a tradition in the Philippines to abstain from eating meat during the Holy Week. Now that I am older […]
