The Fanciest Chicken Inasal I’ve Tried is in Cafe Uma

Cafe Uma’s Boneless Chicken Inasal at PHP 350+ per order

Masskara Festival in Bacolod is a very busy season for all restaurants and hotel owners who are based where the action is. While we were there last October, we went to Lacson Street where the Electric Masskara was happening. The street is closed and each and every restaurant was filled with people. It was already 10 pm and we haven’t eaten our dinner yet so out of desperation, Cafe Uma was the only restaurant without much people so we decided to have dinner there. When we looked at the menu, we already knew why the restaurant wasn’t filled with people, it’s because of their steep prices. I already knew that Cafe Uma has the same owners with Trattoria Uma, an Italian restaurant a few steps away from Cafe Uma. Because we are really so hungry, we didn’t care about the prices anymore. We were assured by the waiter that they their food is good. Continue reading “The Fanciest Chicken Inasal I’ve Tried is in Cafe Uma”

If you’re in Calle Crisologo in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur, I suggest that you try Cafe Uno which is just nearby since it’s literally a few meters away. Cafe Uno is quite popular with the locals and as well as the tourists. We went to Cafe Uno twice, the first time was after the sumptuous dinner at the opposite restaurant, Uno Grillery (which has the same owners as Cafe Uno) and the second time was the next day before we leave Vigan.  Continue reading “Cozy and Charming Place in Vigan Called Cafe Uno”

Portuguese Foodtripping at O’sonho

Portuguese Chourico at O'sonho - 2

Suddenly craving for something new, Karla, my mom and I immediately rushed on a Saturday afternoon to try the dishes here in O’sonho located at the Eastwood Cybermall. As Portuguese cuisine is not that popular here in the Philippines, I think it’s about time that I try something new and interesting. The best thing is that this restaurant didn’t fail me as it pleased my palate even though I haven’t really tired Portuguese food (except for Peri-Peri Chicken). Well, appreciating food shouldn’t be limited to what you have already tasted before. Continue reading “Portuguese Foodtripping at O’sonho”

Last Decent Dinner in Melbourne – Blue Train Cafe

Buildings of Melbourne

It took me more than 2 months to finish all my Australia related blogposts and so now I come to the end of it. My last decent dinner in Melbourne.

Coming home from work at 5:30, I decided to go out and treat myself to a fancy dinner. I would usually buy something to go and eat dinner in my hotel room. My boss urged me to go have dinner in Southgate, Yarra. I know there are lots of nice restaurants there overlooking the Yarra River so I rushed to ride the tram to Southgate.

Albay Food Tour Series #2: Balay Cena Una

Balay Cena Una

When I was in Legazpi, I announced in Facebook that I was there when suddenly, Denden Villanueva, my grade school batchmate in St. Scho Manila  messaged me to visit her restaurant in Daraga. I felt excited about it because it’s been ages since we’ve seen each other. Imagine, we were in prep when we became classmates. I didn’t realize that she’s now managing her family’s restaurant. The restaurant started years ago and was dormant like the Mayon Volcano nearby and just recently opened last May 2009, now with my schoolmate managing it. Continue reading “Albay Food Tour Series #2: Balay Cena Una”
