Celebrating 4 Years at Isabelo Garden Restaurant

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 § 5

To get to Isabelo Garden Restaurant in time for our 8pm reservation, Boyfriend and I had to endure crazy traffic all the way from McKinley Hill to Marikina. It was a bit of an adventure going there, as the restaurant is hidden right at the heart of Marikina. But once we stepped inside, we knew we have unearthed a treasure.

Insatiable Cravings: Macarons by Sinfully

Thursday, October 20, 2011 § 1

Macarons aren't an easy treat to find in Manila. Admittedly, I haven't been eating them for too long.

Mr. Kurosawa: Where East Meets West

Tuesday, October 4, 2011 § 0

My friends and I are starting a new habit of hoarding vouchers from groupon sites (CashCash Pinoy, Ensogo, Metrodeal and the likes). It saves us a lot of money, plus we get to eat more. So we sailed to Mr. Kurosawa and ordered far too much food. Mr. Kurosawa offers a fusion of European and Japanese flavors, though the Japanese dishes and flavors are much more apparent than the European influence.
