    Noriter Cafe | A Cozy and Artsy Cafe with Delicious Offerings

    Noriter Cafe, a playground-themed restaurant, is one of the best hangout places in Manila.

    Dreamland Arts & Crafts Café | An Artsy Restaurant in Tagaytay

    After exploring Crosswinds Swiss Luxury Resort, it was in time for lunch and my sister suggested a nice place to eat around Tagaytay. Dreamland Arts & Crafts Café actually sounds familiar to me ever since it rose to fame in social media with all those dream catcher photos. I’m just not so interested about dream catchers* so it never really existed in my bucket-list. It was just last week when I discovered that it’s not really all about dream catchers. They serve food and drinks as well while also offering artsy and useful products for sale. What’s more, they also offer board games for everyone to enjoy! Food & Price They…

    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.…

    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…

    Bulacan’s Pride | Cafe Apolonio and Restaurant

    Last summer, Jeric the boyfie invited me to go to Bustos, Bulacan to visit a mushroom farm and to conduct a brief interview with the owner. I gladly agreed as a sign of support to his new business venture. Fast forward to the end of the interview, it was lunch time and we started looking for a good place to eat. We were extremely hungry and Mang Inasal was constantly popping into our heads as we crave for unli-rice. I tried to search online for nearby fast-foods and restaurants, for we were on a highway and there were no other people to ask. I found Cafe Apolonio & Restaurant as…
