Something To Chew Food Tour At Glorietta

LugangCafe_STCOGlorietta_9

Getting invited by restaurants to sample their dishes and give an honest review on what I think about their food is a privilege. While I am not a food blogger, I am lucky that restaurants consider me as someone who could shed some light to people who want value for their money. My palette is really simple and my criteria for appreciating good food equates to three things: flavor and quality, excellent service and value for money. So when I got invited to do a food tour hosted by Glorietta Mall ... [ Read More ]

I guess for me burger is a comfort food that once consumed, everything feels better. Heehee. One no-school weekday,  I asked lil' Ms. GJG on a date. She gladly said yes so off we went to Greenhill Promenade and treated ourselves at Slammin' Mini Burgers & Fries & Dips. For burger lovers like me, I'm sure ... [ Read More ]

Japan is one of my dream destinations that hopefully, I get to visit soon. While I'm not a hard core fan of all things kawaii, (okay, maybe I'm just in denial) I am such a sucker for Japanese cuisine. So I was thrilled to know there's another Japanese restaurant in town that focuses on special curry dishes- meet Eri Curry. photo source Originating from India, Japanese curry was introduced by the British who discovered it from Indians in the 19th century.
