Classic Confections

Lemon Torte
PhP 145 (3″ diameter cake)

After having lunch for our Father’s day celebration last Sunday, we went at Classic Confections in Greenbelt 5 for a dessert. They have cakes, cookies, bars and more. 😀 We ordered for a Lemon Torte and a Chocolate Cake. If you’re a first timer there, you won’t leave the place with a bad impression. For sure, you’ll go back there to indulge your sweeth tooth. And because of that I went back there with Sha and Vien to share to them how good the cake is 😀 Continue reading “Classic Confections”

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”

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
Paella

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”
