Sorry, I forgot to take a picture!

This is really a problem I have.  I dunno, I guess it’s in my genetic makeup. Or maybe I just have low EQ. The thing is, as a food blogger, it’s really in your best interest to take a picture of every new meal you eat, for the, uh, sake of posterity and future readers. Well, I just wanted to share today how GREAT the Jalapeno Cheese Turnover is at…

The Secret Foods You Won’t Want to Miss in Little Tokyo

Little Tokyo’s been around for a long time, but since I am too lazy to go up north to Makati, I never had the chance to eat there until last weekend. How to describe it? Little Tokyo is a little ramshackle collection of “authentic” Japanese restaurants run by Japanese nationals, all found in one little compound in the middle of bustling Makati.  It’s not in the saucier part of Makati,…

The Magnum Cafe — not my Opus

There have been hushed talks of this foolish upstart restaurant that dared to serve as its centerpiece ice cream bars that cost 100 bucks each, which would only run for 1 year, and for you to sit down you would have to have at least 3 of you sitting down to order a plate of ice cream at 300 bucks or more per head. Does that sound crazy to you?…

Yoree Korean Restaurant — You’ll be Sorry

Well, there’s a new Korean Barbecue Restaurant at Molito, Alabang (my favorite place to eat Ramen with the famous Yushoken, among other things).   The place is called Yoree, and when you see it it looks pretty unassuming and quite tacky, to be honest with its big, bold letters with bluish backlights saying “Korean Barbecue.” Can’t say it looked all that nice, especially since to your right you would see…

Home Made Chapchae and Kimari

Well, its Good Friday and in the Philippines, that means one big thing: there are no freakin’ restaurants open to sate my infinite hunger!  Worse, the Korean food stall that I go to for lunch at work is closed for the holidays. That means, no Korean Food fix for until Black Saturday.  But no! I won’t stand for it! When man is faced by an insurmountable obstacle, he evolves. When…

The Crimson Hotel – Sunday Family Brunch!

I recently had the opportunity to try out Crimson Hotel’s new initiative, the Sunday Family Brunch. It’s like a combination of all the good things in life: an endless buffet of delicious food, classy lounge ambiance, a roofdeck swimming pool, and a place to leave your kids so you can have some “me time” back. Such is the concept drawn out by Crimson Hotel for your Sunday famiy days. Unlike…

Ramen Nagi – Universally Black

Man I’ve been writing about ramen a lot. I’m so hungry. It’s time to write about another great bowl I had earlier this month. It’s Ramen Nagi’s Kuro ramen.  And Kuro is such an appropriate name for this black, black dish. At first I thought it would be some kind of squid ink ramen, because it was so black! But it’s really just some garlic style ramen like you get…

Hanamaruken Ramen – Happiness is a Bowl away

Today I tried out the ramen from the new shop that opened in Alabang Town Center. It’s called Hanamaruken, which I understand already opened up north previously, but it’s the first restaurant it opened down here. It’s still on soft launch as of this writing, so a lot of things weren’t available yet, but I got to try their signature Happiness Ramen. How to describe it? After the gargantuan bowl…

Asahikawa Ramen Restaurant: Bangaichi

There’s a new ramen restaurant in Festival Mall Alabang. It’s called Bangaichi!  Now I’ve been into a sort of ramen fit ever since I tried out Yushoken’s Godly Ramen around two years ago.  I’ll be honest — nothing is as good as Yushoken. But I’ve sort of developed a taste for the good ramen… and I blast into smithereens the crappy ramen I’ve had. I was thus interested in trying…
