I have many blogger friends who have been to Lachi’s and all I could hear from them is that their food is really good. The nearest thing that I was able to taste was only their best selling Sans Rival. Finally, I was able to actually go to their restaurant at Marfori Heights and sampled a lot of dishes and desserts on our first day of the Davao Food Appreciation Tour (DFAT). Our table was filled with plates of their dishes. I think they served us almost half of their entire menu. This was the start of gluttony in DFAT.

From Istituto Culinario to Brasserie Cicou


Inside Istituto Culinario

It was my first time to learn more about OB Montessori as the culinary art school when I got the chance to attend the launch of Istituto Culinario and Brasserie Cicou last February.  I learned that OB Montessori has a farm and botanical garden in Alfonso, Cavite which is where they get their fresh produce to supply their needs in the school. They have a Brasserie Cicou which serves European cuisine and also were students of Istituto Culinario have their internship program.

A pretty wholistic approach, right?

I remember when I was still working in an office in Makati City, I would either have some pancit bihon or fried lumpia as an afternoon snack a few hours before my work in the office ends.

Cafe by the Ruins (in the morning)

Because it was so hot in Manila, me and Sharlyne went to Baguio City and stayed there overnight. We really made the most out of our Baguio City trip by having dinner and having breakfast at Cafe by the Ruins. I like the ambiance of their restaurant. You’ll feel like you’re just eating at the comfort of your own garden. 🙂 Continue reading “Cafe by the Ruins”
