True Spanish Tapas at Ipar's, Cebu

True Spanish Tapas at Ipar’s, Cebu

Imagine eating all those plates of food, and finishing them too. When the plates are so small, you don’t feel as guilty munching on a lot of things. That’s the beauty of Tapas! When in Cebu, visit Ipar’s Restaurante Y Bar de Tapas for some of the most authentic & tasty Spanish cuisine in the Philippines. I’m...

EuroCruise 2010: Sweet Sunset in Santorini Part 2

After walking around the towns of Oia and Fira, tasting some sulfur-enriched Santorini wines from Santo Winery, and dining with an awesome view at Sphinx Restaurant, it was time to say goodbye to Arthur, our very animated tourguide who spends half the year in Santorini, and the other half in Australia.  My family loved him so much,...

EuroCruise 2010: Wine Tasting at Santo Winery, Santorini

After our walking trip to the town of Oia, our tour guide Arthur took us to Santo Winery for some Greek Wine tasting. Located at the village of Pyrgos in Santorini, SantoWines sits at the edge of the Caldera. Hence, the awesome view!

EuroCruise 2010: Sweet Sunset in Santorini Part 1

As promised from EuroCruise Day 2, ToT is sharing one of the most beautiful sceneries and sunsets in the world… Where even cobblestone shopping feels like a relaxing experience.

Pad Thai & People Watching at People's Palace

Pad Thai & People Watching at People’s Palace

Last week I was craving for some really strong Thai flavors after a recent not-so-satisfying Thai meal at MyThai. Since there are only a handful of Thai restos in Manila that I’m aware of, I headed to the one that always pops up in my head. Which also happens to be one of the hottest...

Sphinx in Santorini: Resto with a View that Tastes Like Heaven

Let me take you out of Manila and into the gates of heaven, visually. Upon stepping inside the salmon colored doors in the middle of the town of Fira, you enter the restaurant with the best view of Santorini, Greece and the Aegean Sea. Welcome to Sphinx Restaurant. Welcome to Santorini As one of the stops in our family...
Eat Well Delicious Kitchen

Eat Well Delicious Kitchen

The name of the restaurant says it all. If you want to “Eat Well” in a “Delicious Kitchen“, run to Eat Well! For me, it’s like the ultimate Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant experience minus the costly airfare ticket to get authenticity. Headed by Law Kwok Keung of Shangri La Hotel Restaurant fame, it’s surely not...
SaturDate Cooking Spaghetti Bolognese

SaturDate Cooking Spaghetti Bolognese

I’m turning cooking into the coolest weekend gimmick. In an attempt to limit eating out, ToT decided to make SaturDate a Cooking In Date. Since who I am cooking for is undoubtedly a Bolognese snob, I had to consult three different cookbooks to get familiar with cooking the Ragu sauce. One of them is the official...

EuroCruise 2010: Day 2 At Sea, On Board

EuroCruise 2010: Day 2 At Sea, On Board

Sorry. I’ve been pushing down my Summer trip posts in lieu of more local food finds which seem to get readers all riled up. I must continue within the year or else I wouldn’t be giving my Summerstravaganza justice. So anyway, my previous post was about the Celebrity Equinox, the ship which we took to tour the Eastern Mediterranean....
