Review: Brad & Pit’s Ribshack Marikina

It’s one of those days, where me and my girls just want to have lunch. Our go to place is the Lilac St. in Marikina which is geographically near to taft, taft of the mountain of Antipolo.

The place has this theme of vintage stuff and quotes are written everywhere. It is a self service ordering. The place might look small but it has actually more seats to accommodate.

Birthday Dinner @ Mitsuyado Sei-Men Jupiter Makati

Since it’s a special day for me. No diet can stop me, from trying this restaurant. It’s a no holds bard day for me.. bwahahaha! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Your wish is my command! that’s what he said, since we rarely eat out in Makati area. I did grab this opportunity to try this restaurant which has been on my list for quite a while already.

Mitsuyado Sei-Men is a ramen/tsukemen restaurant. I was first attracted with their interiors which resonates the old street of Japan. (kahit man lang sa picture kunwari nasa Japan narin ako. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Interiors are simple and yet they bring a Japan vibe to it.

Review: Locavore

It’s been a while since I heard of it and really dying to try their food. Since we got time, we head over to Pioneer where you can find Locavore, the restaurant is near Ace Water Spa and just at the back of Pioneer Center. You can dine inside the restaurant but if you want a more open space, they also have tables outside, so make sure to call them ahead to make a reservation if you want to dine inside the restaurant.

Review: Omakase Marikina

I cannot get enough of my cravings, and tonight is Japanese Food kind of night, the first thing that pop in my head Omakase, hahaha… well I have been dying to try their food but hesitant that the price if their food is a bit pricey, but I was wrong.. It’s worth the risk! hahaha.. The place is located along Gil Fernando Ave, when we got there, the place is pack so we have to wait for a spot to be seated. The interiors are modern but it has that good feel to it. Service is ok! They got our orders and after 15mins orders started to be served but they have some lapses and we need to follow up the remaining orders that haven’t been served. 20150511_210356

Review: Backyard Kitchen and Brew UPTown Center Katipunan

Different food chains are brewing left and right to different parts of Metro Manila. Backyard Kitchen and Brew at UPTown Center in Katipunan is one of the must try food chain. It’s located on Phase 2 with other restos. What I like about the place is design and interior or the place, it has a cool vibe and the interior is like from Backyard Salvage series (if your watching it, you know what I mean) where they used materials and re-create it to something new. I’m a fan of wood furnishing, I don’t know but I just love the homey feeling that it gives with the accentuated lightnings.

Review: Cafe Lidia

One of the must visit places to eat around Marikina is Cafe Lidia, it’s located in a neighborhood area where residential is just beside its restaurant. You just have to find it.. hahahha! Cafe Lidia is a one place were family and friends can get together and still feels that your just hanging on the veranda of your house. It has a homey feeling and foods and drinks that customers can enjoy. I have been here a couple of times because of the ambiance and of course their food. My friends enjoys a good food and laugh.

Overall Cafe Lidia is a nice place to eat and hangout with family and friends, prices of their food is fairly reasonable. Some of their food can be shared if your in a group. The down side is the location of the restaurant, it would be hard to find since its located on the residential and not in the city proper. Be sure to be early because it tends to be crowded and parking is limited.

Review: Banapple

Banapple is one of our go to places for quick gatherings with friends and colleagues. It’s also our go to places for rewarding ourselves after a hard days work. We would always go back to Banapple for their big servingsย  of their food for a reasonable price, their mouth-watering cakes and pastries. The place has its own charm, their fun colors in their interiors and a white picket fence effect.

Review: Contis Katipunan

Contis is one of my go to places for food in Katipunan. I have been here a couple of times with family, friends and colleagues and each time I went here, there is always something new to try with their variety of main course meal to their cakes and pastries and no wonder why customers keep coming back to this place.

Contis is located on the busy street of Katipunan so parking is limited. The whole place has this relaxed and comfortable ambiance. And in several occasions, I have tried a couple of main course meals and every food is really worth every bite.

Price ranges 200+php to 300+php per head. It might be pricey but the serving is enough to make you feel full and satisfied and keep you coming back for more. Don’t forget to try their cakes as well since they are also known for their delicious cakes and pastries.

Review: Grumpy Joe Baguio

I first saw Grumpy Joe on Facebook and I told myself that I have to try their food, but they are only located in Baguio which I haven’t been to, ever in my life. So when I got he chance to go to Baguio for a quick trip before 2014 ends, and who knows when will I be back again, so I must try it no matter what. It’s on my list of the food places that I have to try in Baguio.

So after a long day of walking uphill, downhill the city (which is I don’t mind at all since the whether is cold), we’re totally famished, the last real food that we had is breakfast, so we wanted to really eat something good. After walkingย  around Camp John Hay, we’re supposed to check out 50’s Diner (on my list too) but were 15th on the waiting list and we can’t wait anymore since we are already starving, good thing that Grumpy Joe is just beside 50’s Diner.

By the time we got there, the place is full, there’s no queue but we still need to wait a few minutes before we got seated. IMG_6371

Review: Kogi Bulgogi

Who says Valentines is celebrated only on the day itself (February 14), no matter what day it is, love should always be celebrated. Since February 15, 2013 is payday Friday and it’s post Valentines Day, its not yet late for friends, families and lovers to spend this day and celebrate Valentines.

Friday has always been the most stressful day for me, since I have work to finish and report to submit (chos), my way of distressing is spending time with friends to unwind and getting ready for the weekend ahead. Since I’m a big fan of Korean culture, trying Korean food is a must.

Found a Korean Cuisine around the Metro: Kogi Bulgogi is located on the 2nd level of Eastwood Mall in Quezon City (veranda area)


The place is a small, cozy, well lighted place. They have small bamboo plants as part of their interior which makes the place you would want to stay more. They also have comfortable table couches outside the restaurant if you and friends prefer outside the restaurant. They also have free-wifi (that i didn’t get the chance to use) you can ask the person serving you for the password if you need a quick access to internet. To get the Korean vibe they are greeting guests in Korean (Annyeonghaseyo!), Korean music is also playing in the background, i just don’t recognize whose music and artist it is ^_^


Their menu is limited to Korean dishes, so if you really want to try Korean cuisine in their true nature you can try Kogi Bulgogi, I’m just disappointed with their menu on dessert, because they are only limited to ice cream. I’m so curious what Koreans eat for dessert, i guess they really love ice cream, even in Korean dramas ice cream and yogurts are their choices for sweets/dessert i guess.ย  Prices of their food is average, they ranges from 200php – 400php which is ok since serving size enough and can leave you full.

Our food:


Korean dishes are popular with their side-dishes. I’m very much excited on the side dish part, because not all restaurant provide side dishes, you have to order it separately and be charge for it, but with Korean food, they have finger food before your order really arrives. They may be small servings but it’s just enough to enjoy everything that has been served. They’re all delicious. YUM! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚


I’m not so sure with the name of the dish but this really looks like Gyoza, only it is the small version. This dish can be eaten steamed or fried, I’m just disappointed because of their serving size, infairness it is really good. You might want to order another one.


I ordered the chiken bibimbap. YUM! I think the best way to eat a bibimbap is to mix everything and make a good sauce, it makes the food more flavorful. it has a chili paste which is included to this dish. Koreans are known for their spicy foods, but I’m not fan of super spicy foods so to mellow the spiciness I mixed the soy sauce and small amount of the chili paste, and VIOLA its perfect for adding flavor to the dish.


My friend ordered a beef and mushroom rice topping. Simple but very delicious, the meat is just right and tasty. By the way if you ordered an iced tea you’ll get a 1 free re-fill ^_^.

I really enjoyed the food here, too bad I didn’t get to try the lettuce wrap which is also common Korean food. I would definitely come back and try other dishes. ๐Ÿ™‚ You should too!
