Motorino Pizza Alabang, Muntinlupa

[2019-Oct-16] I arrived at Alabang too early so I decided to go to Decathlon first.  I was intending to buy the no-lace running shoes on sale I saw on their website. I walked to the highway to get a ride to Alabang Town Center – ATC. The commuting route, unfortunately for those that do not…

Chef Jessie Rockwell, Makati

[2019-Oct-13] 1st Stop of the mini food crawl with my daughter @thegastronomersdiary First time to go and eat here. I have been wanting to use the voucher for lunch or dinner set for two but the ones I have asked were not available (or don’t want to go?). Thankfully my daughter @thegastronomersdiary became willing and…

Starbucks Reserve Rockwell, Makati

[2019-10-13] After a very satisfying early lunch at Chef Jessie Rockwell, we went here for some tea. @starbucksph is the 2nd stop of a mini food crawl with my daughter. My drink was matcha. For me this is regular good matcha and was better than what my daughter @thegastronomersdiary had, Chai Latte. My daughter @thegastronomersdiary…

Fatburger MOA, Pasay

[2019-10-14] I was supposed to just stay at home and work on my backlogs but something came up and I went to Fatburger to meetup with a foodie friend for a non-foodie reason. He had 4 gift certificates for burgers and he hasn’t tried Fatburgers yet. I already ate a home-cooked lamb chop and some…

Nitro 7 Coffee & Tea Bar Ortigas (Galleria), QC

[2019-Oct-15] This day was supposed to be totally just a day for chores. Specifically go to several places to acquire a car part that the ‘casa’ is permanently out of stock. My car is a 20 year old Honda Civic so brand new original parts are hard to come by. I got a message the…

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Ortigas (Galleria), Quezon City

[2019-Oct-15] Just came from @NITRO7.COFFEE @robgalleriaortigas but still feel like I need more coffee (well, I used to drink a liter at a time) so dropped by @cbtlph @robgalleriaortigas to claim a Caramel Ice Blended Drink courtesy of @alwayshungryph. This branch has glass walls so easy to see who’s inside the shop and also see…

Southbank Cafe + Lounge Filinvest City, Alabang

[2019-10-08] This was one of the down-the-wire invite that I went to. Invite was posted at around 7am and I was lucky enough to be awake and able to see it. The target meetup/pickup is 9am in Makati and the cafe is located in Alabang so it was quite tight. This maybe anti-climactic but I…

Sha Tin Courtyard Chinese Bistro Banawe , QC

[2019-Sep-20] I was expecting some sort of compound and/or ‘food park’ because of the ‘courtyard’ in the name of this place and did not expect such an imposing facade. The interiors looked quite good too! The list of food to be served. I am one among those whose primary concern/criteria about places to eat (assuming…
