Celebrating 5 Years at Impressions

Sunday, November 18, 2012 § 0

Boyfriend and I recently celebrated our 5th year anniversary at Maxim's with their Sunday brunch. It was such a memorable meal and I thought it'd be the perfect entry to come back from my 5-month hiatus with.

Yabu House of Katsu: Tonkatsu Like No Other

Friday, June 15, 2012 § 1

Boyfriend and I rarely go to Megamall, and when we do, it's usually because we need to do something that can't be done elsewhere. With all the great things I've heard (and read) about Yabu, we were excited to try it out. And goodness, the trip was so worth it.

All Things Turkish at Chef Dogan's

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 § 0

Boyfriend and I have had a lot of delicious and enjoyable meals at Chef Dogan Turkish Grill and Restaurant. But of course, when we went there so I can finally blog about it, they decided to give us crappy service. All the menu items I was craving for weren't available. No kusbasi, no moutabal, no hummus. And best of all, they made us wait 40 minutes for our food. In the end, it didn't matter how good the food was because the bad service already ruined the experience for us.

Mango Tree and The Cake Club: The Pleasures of Finding Something New

Tuesday, May 15, 2012 § 2

The new Bonifacio High Street Central in the Fort has been creating a buzz with all their new restaurants, and soon to open boutiques. And given that my workplace is 10 mins away, Boyfriend and I decided to explore and tour our palates. Choosing a restaurant was hard. But because Boyfriend is currently addicted to Pad Thai (still hungover from our Dusit Thani experience), we decided to go to Mango Tree. The interiors, from the high ceilings, fancy artwork, beautifully crafted furniture, to the people dining in suits, are a little intimidating. Fortunately, the servers are very friendly and they make their customers feel at ease and right at home.

Lusso and the Foie Gras Burger

Tuesday, May 8, 2012 § 0

Many things have been said about Lusso's famous foie gras burger, and for my 23rd birthday, Boyfriend and I decided to give it a try. We were originally planning on dining at the Phoenix Court in Bellevue, but because I was stuck in Greenbelt, we ended up at Lusso where we had the most amazing time.

Cravings: All-you-can-eat Salad and More

Friday, April 27, 2012 § 1

Cravings is one of those Katipunan restaurants that Boyfriend and I often overlook. But for his birthday, we decided to give it another visit. It was our first time to eat there after the recent renovations, and I have to say, I miss the old interiors. The old Cravings was more cozy and homey, but now it has more of a cafe vibe. The food, on the other, stayed the same. Almost.

Johnny Rockets: All-American Comfort Food

Thursday, April 26, 2012 § 0

We celebrated Boyfriend's birthday after his last law school exam as a Junior. He just wanted a simple, relaxed day, spent together, with a nice lunch, dinner and a movie. He was craving for a burger so we went to Eastwood, and fortunately, Johnny Rockets wasn't packed with the usual lunch crowd. Or maybe it was because we were there on a Wednesday, at 3 in the afternoon.

Maitre Chocolatier: No Such Thing as Too Much Chocolate

Thursday, February 23, 2012 § 1

Great movies deserve sequels, the same goes for great dates. Since our Valentines date didn't go as smoothly as planned, we went on another food adventure, this time at Maitre Chocolatier. No gifts, no dressing up, just the two of us enjoying each other's company and some pretty kick ass food.

Happy Tummies, Happy Hearts (Adarna Food & Culture and Xocolat)

Monday, February 20, 2012 § 0

Valentines Day isn't something all couples celebrate, but we do. It may just be an excuse to go all fancy with flowers, chocolates and expensive restaurants for some, but it's more than that for us. Other than anniversaries, it's a day when we can be all lovey dovey in public without getting weird stares from people, a day when we look back and reflect on all the blessings that have been given to us. Yes, we can still do all the things I mentioned on ordinary days, but everything feels more special on Valentines.

No, my Boyfriend didn't take me to Lola Idang's for Valentines. But our meal here did remind us of all the good things we love about Filipino cuisine.

Toast Box: Overloading on Chicken and Milo

Friday, February 3, 2012 § 1

Since the year started, Boyfriend and I decided on going for a healthier lifestyle. The gym is now part of our usual routine, and we have lessened our excessive dinner dates considerably. Because of this, I try to make the most out of those days when I actually get to eat "normal" food (I say "I" because Boyfriend still eats a lot when we're not together).

Shi Lin: The Secret is in the Sesame

Wednesday, January 11, 2012 § 0

For the past few weeks, people have been flocking to Ayala Triangle. Boyfriend and I wanted to eat at Wee Nam Kee but we were 37 on the wait list. Fortunately, Shi Lin recently opened a branch in The Fort, away from all the hustle and bustle of Makati. It was a blessing in disguise, because we ended up with some amazing Xiao Long Bao.
