    We ate from a toilet bowl at the Modern Toilet Restaurant

    As I’ve mentioned in my previous post about our day 3 in Taiwan, we went to Ximending and had our dinner at Modern Toilet Restaurant which I believe deserves a separate post. And yes, you’ve read the title of this post correctly (you don’t need an eye check-up!), as we literally ate from a pot fashioned like a toilet bowl. Interiors But before I tour you inside, let me first show you the entrance of the restaurant. You will automatically think this is the Modern Toilet Restaurant you’ve been hearing about even before you see the store name! Now, let’s go upstairs and see what the buzz was all about.…

    Taipei Foodtrip | Ningxia Night Market

    Just a block away from our hotel (King Plaza) there’s a night market packed with delicious finds: Ningxia Night Market. The place is always filled with customers which is a good indicator for quality and taste. It’s not as popular as other night markets like Shilin, Ximending, Shida, etc., but we definitely had a great food-trip experience here! Most foodstuffs were being cooked right in front of you so you wouldn’t help but try as many food as you can as they all smell yummy! It was actually quite hard to decide which one to eat first. The first one we tried was the Roasted Beef. Beef cut into cubes…

    Tita Mae’s Kitchen | A Casual Buffet Resto in Caloocan

    It happened that we had to go to Caloocan to purchase necessary stuff for our internet shop. As always, looking for a nice place to eat nearby would be unavoidable. I searched the internet and found Koko Kofi which looked very interesting and just 10-min drive from Cheapid Computer (our suking tindahan ng kompyuter 😜). However, upon reaching the said restaurant, it was closed as it was Monday. Good thing there’s a buffet restaurant just beside it that looked equally compelling: Tita Mae’s Kitchen. Basic Buffet is priced at 199 Php which includes 9 main course dishes, rice (plain & java), assorted dimsum, salad, and fruits. But if those aren’t enough…

    Pizza Volante in Wright Park, Baguio City

    Not really a part of our Baguio tour, we found Pizza Volante when we inquired for horseback riding rates at Wright Park. Unfortunately, the horses looked tired and stressed so we just looked for a good place to eat nearby. The restaurant is fronting Wright Park Horse Stable which is very strategic since people would normally starve after horseback riding. With the city’s naturally cool weather, who wouldn’t want to experience alfresco dining in Baguio? Another aspect that captured my interest upon seeing the resto. Not to mention I was craving for pizza! Pizza Volante came at the right time, in the right place! Upon entering the place, a wait…

    ChizMozza | Satisfy Your Mozzarella Cheese Cravings

    Aside from its witty and catchy name (as it sounds like chismosa which is a filipino/spanish word for someone who loves to gossip), what really caught my attention is their product itself. People often associate mozzarella cheese with pizza and pasta dishes. Not many people would think about shaping it into bite-size and sticks, cover it with crunchy coating, and sell it as their main snack product. The name ChizMozza actually came from Mozzarella Cheese. Not so hard to figure out, right? Mozzarella Bites and Mozzarella Sticks According to the staff, their best sellers are the Mozzarella Bites and Mozzarella Sticks. This snack is crunchy on the outside, cheesy and…

    Pan de Amerikana | Upside Down Restaurant in Katipunan Ave

    I’ve been considering this restaurant ever since I discovered it from a friend way back when I was still working in Libis, Quezon City (that’s 2 years ago). It’s just few kilometers away from my workplace (Calle Industria), but let’s not dig deeper as to why it never transpired because I myself can’t explain either. 😅 Now that I’m not based in QC anymore that the plan finally took place (what an irony). It’s when I was scheduled to get my separation pay from my previous company and we had to look for an interesting place to eat lunch nearby after the appointment. So the age-old idea of hitting up…

    Bill’s Bear Café in Ermita, Manila

    We were in Manila for a business meeting when we found a restaurant worth hitting up. Bill’s Bear Cafe was easily spotted inside Robinsons Place, Ermita. We actually dined here twice already. The first happened during merienda when we tried their Crispy Quadro Pizza, Yakult Green Tea, and Bill’s Bear Milk Tea. It was so good that we agreed to come back but this time during lunch. I ordered one of their new dishes — Chicken & Shrimp Cream Pasta, while Jeric tried one of the best sellers — Salmon in Lemon Caper Cream Sauce. Drinks were Bill’s Bear Milk Tea (again) and Oreo Milk Tea. Dessert was King Mango…
