    Mixedstone Wings & Steak in Sampaloc, Manila

    Wings or steak? No more arguments needed as you can have both when you dine at Mixedstone Wings & Steak! Yes, we don’t need to get angry and hungry at the same time! I’m personally not into wings so I’d more likely choose steak over wings, but Jeric is the exact opposite! So grateful for this new discovery. Decision making made easy, eh? Mixedstone Wings & Steak is a sister company of Chicks & Fins and Ironpan Steakhouse. So it’s kinda like the perfect combination of the two.   Food & Price Their main offerings are T-Bone Steak and Flavored Wings. The steak comes with rice and veggie sides, literally…

    Panchos Diner | Pinoy Comfort Food with a Twist

    Have you ever encountered food as odd as sinigang sa watermelon or sizzling bangus with mango chutney? If you’re food-venturous enough for such kind of cooking then I’m pretty sure you’ll love Panchos Diner’s unique offerings!   Food & Price Panchos Diner serves mostly Filipino comfort food that we all grew up with—but with little twists! This restaurant was actually a breath of fresh air for us from all the samgyup gaming we had. The first one that caught my attention was Beef Sinigang sa Watermelon as I got curious about the twist they did on that dearest comfort food of mine. I’m used to eating sinigang sa sampalok, gabi,…

    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…
