Microsoft Kitchen - Wed, 12/12/2018 - 01:00
It exists! A good high quality Chinese meal on the average price.  IN METRO MANILA! It’s been years since my last visit. I might not like the interiors but I love the food and the price. At 6pm, we had all the wait’s attention all to ourselves. Salivate… Real shrimps (with an s) Hakaw… No […]

Pampanga Express

Just because… An all-veggie affair making use of the Bicolano’s gata cooking technique and the Pampango palate (meaning it’s sweeter than spicier!). Don’t scream! I just like how it sounds.

When delicious flavors collide

I can’t help but sigh. Contentment. A cool rainy day of good eats and heartwarming girl talk with my best food buddy at Bizu. How can I forget the lyonnaise potatoes drizzled with garlic mayo sauce beside a crisp and tasty duck confit? And how can I ever forget the soft as butter duck confit?! […]

Cravings, Sudden Cravings

Microsoft Kitchen - Tue, 11/20/2018 - 01:00
