Roamed around Marfori and saw in the corner a terrace…quite hidden actually, so LJ and I thought it was close. We liked the idea of hanging out in a balcony so we decided to trespass only to find out that it was not deserted…and that’s how we found Rumah Kari, a small sweet resto that has no more than 5 tables (cool ones though) that offers Indian and Malay cuisine. We just had lunch so we decided to hit the desert menu instead. But we are definitely going back for their main course!
We had Homemade Ginger ice cream, homemade Chilli ice cream, and Mamul (a jewish sweet delicacy).
So…one of my flatmates in Hong Kong majors in Food Design and his friend is a Chef. Aren’t I lucky to have two food angels in the house? I never got hungry again. Amen.
So this is how food magic happens:

If you want to eat Thai food Soms would be a good answer to your craving. Soms Noodle House is this place in Makati near Rockwell that offers SukhoThai cuisines. I love this place…although personally, I liked their food better when I tasted it the first time. Now that they have expanded, something seems amiss. But it’s just maybe the ambiance that’s changed. The fluorescent lights glowering on the long tables and white walls seem unromantic compared to the outdoor umbrella-tables I’m used to. Soms, upon its expansion, ended its hole-in-the-wall days became a legitimate restaurant. Continue reading

Named as one of the best red velvet cupcakes in spot.ph — of course, i’m gonna order it, just to see what the fuss is all about. And so yes –it is worth every penny -which is not much actually (Php60).
What makes a perfect red velvet cupcake, you ask? Most baker would say it has to be moist with a little hint of cocoa for it not to take like the usual vanilla cupcake — but not to make it chocolate flavored. And the red…needs to be red– not a pale shade of pink. Continue reading
Barcino boasts to have the greatest collection of Spanish wine in Manila. I have heard of this place and have always thought it as “Barcina”. Don’t know why, but the “A” stuck more than the “O”. Remember that small deli bar named Barcino Gourmet in Ortigas? It’s this wine bar’s
not so humble beginning. In 2008, they expanded in Bonifacio High Street and in 2009 they launched the Club de Vino that gathered distinguished wine lovers turned loyal members who vouched for the wine resto bar’s excellent wine selections. Continue reading

During my visit to Tiaong, Quezon, near the rotunda, at the heart of San Pablo Plaza, is a cozy restaurant that offers great food at affordable prices.

The cafe was unveiled October 2010 and has become a local favorite since then. Continue reading
