Taken at: UnionBank Plaza in Pasig City, Philippines

I now have a new favorite in Burger King. They call it the Bacon King and it is so heavenly – two quarter pound patties, cheese, and bacon. It couldn’t get any better than this.




Taken at: Casa Verde, Ayala Center in Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines

I just realized that I am alone in Cebu tonight. My colleagues have moved on to their next assignments. So, what better way to spend this cold, rainy night but with the most comforting food Cebu can offer.

Casa Verde offers steak at very low prices. They have delicious food and you wouldn’t realize you’re in Cebu. I sat at the bar because I didn’t mind and I don’t want to wait for a regular table to free up. I had pasta and steak and a delicious milkshake.





Taken at: Mendokoro Ramenba in Makati City, Philippines

They listed this place as one of the best ramen finds in the Metro. And, boy, they did not disappoint!

They have limited seats so you might have to wait a while if there are customers. You don’t get to choose to be seated together because you get what you can – seats and all. They are solely focused on ramen with some sides like gyoza.

The ramen was delicious especially the broth. The noodles are firm just the way I like it. The chashu was the perfect addition to the broth and noodles. It was the perfect bowl of ramen!

Sorry, Ramen Nagi. There’s a new favorite in town.
