It was like sushi and bibimbap made love.
I discovered the poke bowl in Dean and Deluca. And although I swore never to eat rice again, the temptation was just too hard to resist. In fact, I am eating one right now as I’m typing this entry. It has everything I can possibly want – fresh sashimi, seaweed and veggies, sweet Japanese rice and a dash of spicy sauce.
Soru Izakaya, Maginhawa St. QC
It has been a long while since I’ve been in Maginhawa street. I remember going to Good Burger and Moonleaf for lunch back in college but the street wasn’t like it was before. I asked on Twitter if anyone can recommend a good place to start and ultimately we ended up in Soru Izakaya.
Birdhouse, UPTown Place
Congratulations to Birdhouse PH for celebrating their first anniversary! They have been serving chicken wings – mother of all comfort food – since last September and now they have just launched their JUMBO wings with delicious and interesting flavors you won’t want to miss.
Hogs and Cattle, Century Mall
Wagyu. Unlimited. Put these two words together and Jeff and I will come running. That’s why we tried out the unlimited wagyu in Hogs and Cattle in Century Mall. Wagyu is pretty high quality meat so upon learning the price, I wasn’t expecting much. But even though I was right about the steak being ‘less than impressive’, I won’t write off Hogs and Cattle out of my list just yet.
Kyo-To, Legazpi Village
The restaurant itself will probably not catch your attention, but Kyo-to is definitely not one to miss especially if you love Japanese food as much as I do. The only things loud about the place are the food and of course, the chef himself Chef Kawamoto who worked for no less than the Japanese ambassador.
They say it’s authentic Kaiseki Ryori (Japanese multi course meal) but I can’t judge because I’ve never been to one. All I know is that I left happy and satisfied and barely breathing. lol 😀
RAGING BULL CHOPHOUSE & BAR, BGC
Jeff and I have been together for 2 years and 3 months (officially) and although monthsaries aren’t as much of a milestone as anniversaries,it’s nice to keep on dating like the first time – not to mention it’s also a great excuse to stuff ourselves with great food. LOL.
We celebrated this month at The Raging Bull which is a steak house in the fairly new Shangri La at the Fort.
One of the things I looked forward to during my first ever visit to Hong Kong was trying out their famous egg waffles (雞蛋仔) . I first saw it around Times Square Mall for HKD20. It was more expensive than I thought it would be because it was streetfood, but I definitely enjoyed its crunchy-soft egg-y deliciousness. When I thought I wasn’t craving for it anymore, we accidentally came across Oddies after having lunch in Gough street (which is a must go to place for foodies. The restaurants there all look enticing!). We saw the photo of the egg waffles with gelato and we were sold!
