Getting Our Scrambled Egg Fix at the Yolk Food Truck

If you happen to be walking around Burnham Park, getting some fresh air and sunshine or having a pandemic-safe meetup with friends, you might stumble across a light blue truck. There’s a good chance there will be a line at the window, too. When Yolk Korean Egg Sandwiches set up shop, you can bet it’s worth the wait. We saw the sandwiches on friends’ posts … Continue reading Getting Our Scrambled Egg Fix at the Yolk Food Truck

A Seafood (and More!) Party for Two at Calle Uno Food Hub

On a Sunday when we were bound for BenCab museum, we wanted to have a late lunch date somewhere on the way – preferably somewhere we had never eaten before. The Quezon Hill area came to mind, and although we had dined at Calle Uno Food Hub before, it had been long enough that there were a handful of establishments that were new to us. … Continue reading A Seafood (and More!) Party for Two at Calle Uno Food Hub

Budget-Friendly Gourmet Fried Rice by Macsbox

Despite having lived in Baguio for most of my life, including my broke college (and broke new employee) days, I never indulged in Macsbox fried rice – until recently. Established in 2002, Macsbox has been a long-time favorite of students and anyone on a budget in need of a filling meal. Strategically located in front of the Saint Louis University main gate, they sold enough … Continue reading Budget-Friendly Gourmet Fried Rice by Macsbox

Late Lunch on a Foggy Afternoon at Arca’s Yard

Tucked away in the aptly-named Tiptop, Arca’s Yard offers a cafe experience away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s quite the journey getting there, especially compared to other, more convenient spots near the city center, but it’s well worth it once you arrive. If you’re looking for a quiet place where you can enjoy a meal and a hot drink surrounded by … Continue reading Late Lunch on a Foggy Afternoon at Arca’s Yard

Objects of My Ingestion, Pasig quarantine edition

Enhanced community quarantine started March 16 in Luzon, forcing most restaurants to either temporarily shut down or open only for pick-up and delivery. Unfortunately, this meant a significant loss for not just established restaurants but small businesses as well. Many of them turned to social media and ramped up their posting to entice more customers. These are some of the treats we found through social … Continue reading Objects of My Ingestion, Pasig quarantine edition

UP Diliman houses a huge variety of dining options, from family-friendly sit-down restaurants to little stalls that offer whatever street food you might be craving.

With the thriving Japanese community in Baguio, it’s no surprise that Japanese cuisine is easy to come by – and it receives a lot of love. While Japanese-style fast food can often satisfy your cravings, once in a while, it’s nice to spoil yourself and spring for the real thing. Chaya is a popular spot among locals and tourists alike, offering authentic Japanese food in … Continue reading Baguio’s Best Japanese Fare at Chaya

Indulgent Dining at Miguel & Maria Restaurant

Marikina is only a jeep ride away from our place, but I haven’t explored it much except to visit a spa and attend last year’s Pride Parade. One Sunday date night was spent at Miguel & Maria, one of many establishments along Lilac Street that offers good food and drinks. It was hard to pick just one dish because everything on the menu sounded so … Continue reading Indulgent Dining at Miguel & Maria Restaurant
