    Foodstagrammin’ In Hong Kong

    This post is all about food, food, food, and more food. In all of my trips to Hongkong, I always make it a point to try something new and revisit my old time favorites. I don’t necessarily follow popular recommendations because taste is universally personal and subjective but I do read and take note of some blogs and whenever I get interested, I go and give them a try, and sometimes, I even write about them too. To name a few, I have written about Crystal Jade, City Super (Times Square and Harbour City), Sift Patisserie, and Honeymoon Dessert; Pasteleria Koi Kei, Wong Chi Kei, Yee Shun Milk Company, Kai…

    Brunch Buffet at Monsees Bakery & Cafe

    Last May 13, Monsees Cafe celebrated Mother’s Day with a brunch / dinner buffet for only P399. It also came with a lize jazz band and flowers for moms. The place was jampacked and we got lots of inquiries as to when the next buffet’s gonna be. What I can suggest for now is that you follow Monsees Cafe in Facebook and Twitter so that you can receive promo updates. We’re also launching our new and improved menu this June so it’s going to be really exciting at the shop. In the meantime, let me share with you some photos taken during the buffet and hope that you drop by…

    Lia's Cakes

    If Max’s is the house that chicken built, then Lia’s Cakes is the house that avocado built πŸ˜€ Man, that’s avocado right there! In a cake!!! I don’t have enough words to describe it. It probably isn’t the best cake anyone would ever try but the cake itself is moist and flavorful and will sure make any avocado lover scream for joy. And for the non-avocado lovers, don’t worry. The best time to change your mind is now. The avocado flavor isn’t too strong, it won’t scare you away. I promise, it’s really good and there’s no better way to lose your avocado-virginity than to this sexy cake, baby! πŸ˜€…

    Mad Mark's Man Sandwich & Frozen D

    A week ago, hubby and I decided to drop by Mad Mark’s in Kapitolyo to try their famous The Man sandwich. While I know that I can’t fully enjoy any of their delicious sandwiches, I still decided to bring hubby there because I know that their sandwiches are his kind of thing. And true enough, Mad Mark’s didn’t fail to deliver. As with most of the Kapitolyo neighborhood restos, the space is really small and Mad Mark’s can easily get crowded anytime. When we went there, we noticed that they only have a handful of wait staff, maybe three including the cashier. I can just imagine how toxic it is…

    Milky & Sunny… Evening Brekky, Why Not?

    Last night, hubby and I went out to grab a copy of the November-December issue of Look Magazine where a friend and fellow foodie/blogger, Tangled Noodle, wrote an article about the new diet plans out there. She interviewed me about the Cohen diet and she included snippets of our convo in her article. And on this note [apologies for this plug], I’d like to invite you to grab a copy of Look Magazine if you can πŸ™‚ Anyhow… the nearest bookstore to our place is just along Pioneer St. in Mandaluyong and since we’re already in the hood, we decided to drive around Brgy. Kapitolyo in Pasig to look for…

    Cafe Milflores…finally, something cute in Batangas!

    Nestled outside Batangas City’s basilica and a few hops off from the city’s plaza is a little cafe that looks very pleasant and inviting. It’s called Cafe Milflores and it’s located along P. Dandan St. in Batangas City. We went there a few months ago but we weren’t able to come in because they’re already closed. It’s sad because it’s a cafe and it was already closed when we got there around 9PM or so. Now you know how early people from the provinces sleep at night πŸ˜› So if you check the place out, make sure you come in early. The first thing you’ll see when you enter is…

    Subspace Cafe

    After watching What’s Your Number? with hubby, we headed to this much talked-about cafe in Ortigas called Subspace Cafe. I asked my officemate for the location and finding it was no hassle. It’s in Cityland building along Emerald Avenue. There are so many blogs out there that highly recommend this place not just for the coffee or pastries or savory pies, but also for its interiors. However, as with beauty, appreciation will always be in the eye of the beholder. And inΒ  my case, while I enjoyed the short moment I spent with hubby in a cafe that’s new to both of us, I can’t say that I share the…

    Suzhou Dimsum in San Juan

    I should have posted about this last April (it’s been sitting in my Drafts for the last three months!) and I’m sorry for not posting this on time. Now, I have forgotten about the details of the food and how much we paid for them. Maybe I’m implying that the restaurant is forgettable but seriously, there’s nothing I could remember as outstanding from among the three dishes we ordered. Or maybe, it’s time for another visit to Suzhou Dimsum in San Juan πŸ™‚ I am not in the know as to what really makes a dish strictly Taiwanese or what makes one strictly Chinese but if my recollection is correct…
