Salivating over The Suite Room’s Pan-Fried Salmon

I first discovered this wonderful dish via Foodpanda. My usual go-to’s when I’m in the mood for food delivery (and I’m sick of the food from the carinderia) are Hala Paella, Brique, and Ilaputi. That time I felt a hankering for salmon and decided to check out the menu of other restaurants. When I saw […]

Thanks, Kuya J’s Restaurant 

A friend and I found ourselves at Ayala mall at 11pm with no dinner yet. We walked over to that relatively new Korean bbq place at the Terraces that we’ve been eyeing for some time. However, after we flipped through their menu, we had to walk out and seek out another place.  Their prices were […]

Maitre Chocolatier Boutique Cafe

It was by accident that I walked into this chocolate shop with a friend. We meant to have a bite and a coffee at J.CO in Ayala Cebu, but they were close at the time when we got there. We were about to walk away to find some other place when I spotted the cute and […]

Right outside the place I rent in Cebu City are a couple of barbecue vendors and whenever I pass by them on my way home, the smokey aroma […]

Top 3 chows in Cebu (so far)

I was losing weight late last year in Dumaguete after I religiously followed a diet + exercise regimen. But since I started working in Cebu in December 2012, I have steadily packed on additional pounds. You can call it stress eating. Adjusting to  new (and bigger) responsibilities at work, being away for long periods of time from […]

Do you eat enough veggies?

(Sorry if this is another green post.) In answer to the question posed by this post’s title, I don’t. And it seems that I’m not alone. Studies have shown that Filipinos are eating less and less of the greens. In 1978, each Filipino was consuming 145 grams of veggies (average) per day, everyday. But in […]
