Zao Vietnamese Bistro

We can’t always take the kids to try different cuisines, but we try our best to introduce them when we have the chance to do so. Yesterday was one of those evenings when Jay and I found ourselves already hungry while waiting for Pablo to get back from what turned out to be a whole-day event with his former leader and Victory group (Bible Study group for pre-teens). We’ve been wanting to invite his former VG leader and one of his closest friends, Benj, to dinner with us for months anyway; and though it wasn’t at all planned, we found […]

Restaurant Review: Mamita’s Bulaluhan

There wasn’t much to do after New Year’s eve in Baguio. BenCab Museum was closed for the holidays and we’ve practically exhausted all attractions we planned to take the kids to. So we took our sweet time and just left the hotel right before lunch time. One of the things I wanted to do in Baguio was to try homegrown restaurants. We’ve tried the very popular Great Taste; and although the servings and the taste were indeed great, we didn’t feel like waiting too long for our food all over again. So we went searching for another restaurant that’s very Baguio-y. I’ve been […]

Restaurant Review: Kuya J Restaurant

I’ve always wanted to try out Kuya J Restaurant since I first saw its Jericho Rosales ads. Not that I’m a fan of Jericho, but I’ve always been a fan of Crispy Pata and I saw that they have it in their menu. I also liked how the food looks in other blogs, so I made a mental note to visit when I finally have the chance. I’m not sure if BGC already has one, if there is, it must not be along the routes we usually take. Otherwise, we would have eaten there a long time ago. The one […]

Vanilla Cafe: My Easter Date and his Cupcake

Our 6-year old Judah was my date on the afternoon of Easter Sunday. The usual Easter attractions at Bonifacio High Street were dampened a bit by the rain showers that day, but we were happy and dry inside Vanilla Cafe as we waited for the staff to call Judah to decorate his cupcake. I’ve always admired Vanilla Cafe from the outside. We would pass it all the time whenever we go to Track 30 to run or whenever we’ll be in the area, but we haven’t really had the chance to try it yet. It’s so pretty even from the outside so […]

No meat meals? Try Slappy Cakes Lenten specials

I got invited to try out Slappy Cakes Lenten Specials at their branch in SM Aura earlier this week. I originally planned to just take Lukas with me, but the rest of the family ended up joining me instead. And it was just as good because there was so much food! Slappy Cakes Lenten Specials are no-meat alternatives that include great, tasty dishes from appetizers to pasta and filling sandwiches and rice meals. That MasterChef moment Jay and I had a “MasterChef” moment when he gently cut through the eggs on Slappy Cakes’ Salmon Benedict and out oozed the yolk, blending dramatically […]
