Our friend Ria Bautista introduced to us one of the newest Korean restaurants in Bonifacio Global City. Upon learning that Yoree is a Korean Barbeque restaurant, we did not hesitate to accept her invitation to try the food at Yoree. Yoree is located in Forum BGC which is just a block away from The Fort Strip. Other Korean Barbeque Restaurants that are near to Yoree are Sariwon, and K-Pub BBQ. Read more »
Before I went to Krakow last August, I already researched some of the most important things to try while there and thanks to my Polish colleagues in HR, I was able to get to know more of what Polish cuisine has to offer. Here are some of the things I tried:
Kielbasa with fried potatoes and pierogi – around PLN 23.00, approx. PHP 325.00
I love dumplings because this is a kind of food that you can easily eat anywhere. Polish dumplings are called Pierogi and it is made of unleavened dough commonly stuffed with cheese, sauerkraut, spinach, mushrooms, etc. The dumplings are boiled first then deep fried with butter and onion. This is very much similar to Italy’s ravioli, Japan’s Gyoza, Korea’s Mandu and Chinese’s Jiaozi. One can find Pierogi anywhere in Poland. I had the first taste of Pierogi from a Polish restaurant called Chopin at the Old Town then I had another batch and had it as a side dish paired with my pork skewers (photo above). I am used to the Asian type of dumplings where the wrapper is thin while Pierogi’s have thicker dough.
What I always anticipate whenever I go to Baguio are the art works and of course new food discoveries. Now, I could say that I could scrap off Oh My Gulay from my Baguio food tripping bucket list because I just dined there during my recent Baguio getaway weekend with mom.
I was practically relying on Google Maps when I was locating Oh My Gulay. It was quite hard to find because it doesn’t have a sign. Oh My Gulay is located at Session Road, just beside the building beside Philam Building and opposite Don Henrico’s Pizza. It’s located at the 5th floor (top most floor). I find it odd that Oh My Gulay is in a building where most law firms are situated so once we arrived at the 5th floor, we were transported in a different place (or another planet!). Unfortunately, the place was a bit dim at night and the camera I brought isn’t that good when it comes to low light so I will just opt to go back there in the future and preferably day time.
Oh My Gulay has selections perfect for vegetarians and those health conscious. Read more »
After Twisted Candy, we finally headed to our last stop. Our last stop for the night was Vikings. Vikings is an eat-all-you-can restaurant. They do not have an ala carte menu like some restaurants that offer buffet. Vikings restaurant is said to be the best buffet restaurant in Manila. They are not just your typical buffet restaurant since they are a luxury buffet restaurant. Read more »
After a filling dinner at Brickfire and Buffalo’s Wings N’ Things, we walked to SM The Block from SM North Annex. We went to Twisted Candy. The candies that are being sold there are made on the spot. It makes you wonder how they were able to come up with such designs on those candies. You can check out this Instagram video by Sharlyne. Read more »
