Review: Brad & Pit’s Ribshack Marikina

Standard

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

Standard

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! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ) Interiors are simple and yet they bring a Japan vibe to it.

[SEOUL] Hello Kitty Cafe

Standard

We wouldn’t pass visiting a Hello Kitty Cafe when in Seoul. We had a hard time finding the place around in Hongdae, good thing there’s a map of Hongdae area in ur guesthouse and we have located the other Hello Kitty which is a couple blocks away from Hongik University. We just followed the map and found the Hello Kitty Cafe. ( I think this is the 2nd branch in Hongdae)

Review: Locavore

Standard

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

Standard

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

Standard

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

Standard

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

Standard

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 servingsΒ  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

Standard

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

Standard

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 walkingΒ  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
