John and Yoko, Cosmopolitan Japanese

John and Yoko at Greenbelt 5

Upon walking towards John and Yoko (the restaurant), I already felt this cosmopolitan ambiance. When I got inside, it seemed to be a restaurant bar (because of the lighting) but it’s not really one. I’ve learned that it’s one of Marvin Agustin’s business ventures. Continue reading “John and Yoko, Cosmopolitan Japanese”

Abe, where good friends dine

Lamb Adobo at Abe
Lamb Adobo Bencab (PhP 350 per serving)

When it was my first time to eat at Abe restaurant (Serendra branch), we waited for some time because the restaurant is already full. Anyway, we still waited because our relatives from Las Vegas were craving for something new yet something Pinoy. The
second time I went there (this time with Sha and Baby), we arrived there with no lines. Hence, we decided to eat there. 🙂 Continue reading “Abe, where good friends dine”

Ma Mon Luk: Still serving the best mami and siopao

The Original Ma Mon Luk Mami

If you want some mami and siopao experience that is already written in history, go to Ma Mon Luk in either Quiapo or along Quezon Ave. near Banawe. Those are the only two existing branches of Ma Mon Luk. Since Ma Mon Luk’s death on September 21, 1961, three generations have been succeeded already and I’m glad it’s still there. 🙂 Continue reading “Ma Mon Luk: Still serving the best mami and siopao”

The difference between Pizza Hut and Pizza Hut Bistro

Paella at Pizza Hut Bistro

Prior to dining at Pizza Hut Bistro, I was already intrigued by how’s the menu offering different from the regular Pizza Hut. Upon entering the restaurant at Gateway, I was impressed with the ambiance. The restaurant has a set of mood lights and much larger tables covered with cloth. On top of a table is a vase with an anthurium which made me think of funerals. Continue reading “The difference between Pizza Hut and Pizza Hut Bistro”

Seafood at Aling Mahsya

Shopping for Sugpo at Dampa along Diosdado Macapagal Avenue.

Seafood lovers would call Diosdoda Macapagal Avenue their haven. Prior to the restaurants found along the area, there’s the famous Dampa at Paranaque City. And there was Seafood Market which is also like Dampa-style (you even have to shop also for the vegetables aside from the seafood itself). Just like any Dampa-style restaurant, the first thing that you have to do is to market for the seafood. Continue reading “Seafood at Aling Mahsya”

Cyma Estiatorio at Greenbelt 2


We celebrated Mother’s day at Cyma Estiatorio in Greenbelt 2 since Mom is craving for something Greek. 😀 For our appetizer, we had Hummous (which is really spelled as Hummus but they spelled it that way in the menu) served with 2 pita breads (each pita bread divided into four). Hummous is a dip made of mashed chickpeas (garbanzos) blended with tahini, lemon juice, salt and garlic. Continue reading “Cyma Estiatorio at Greenbelt 2”

19 pieces of sushi and maki

Yearning for Japanese food yet you want something that could fit in your 100-peso budget? Well, this 19 pieces of assorted sushi and maki that costs 99 pesos from Maki Mi Sushi is a must try.

But if you like only 4 or 5 pieces, the cost is from PhP 25.00 to PhP 30.00. 🙂 Continue reading “Maki Mi Sushi at SM Megamall”
