Copenhagen's Crepe ala Pandekager (aka Pancake-Bike)

Copenhagen’s Crepe ala Pandekager (aka Pancake-Bike)

Crepes are, what I would call, the ultimate mobile munchie; easy as a sandwich, tasty as a slice of pizza, and portable as an ice cream cone. Introducing the Pancake Bike In Copenhagen, the crepe is made even cooler when its made to order, to your fancy, from a 3-wheel tricy-cart. It appeals to me...

The Parisienne Macaron Marathon: Pierre Herme

Since I am on hideaway hiatus for the holidays, I found some free time to go back to one of my passions, which is writing. I always loved to verbalize my thoughts but would put on the back burner when things get hectic. I also need to continue my halted review of my Parisienne Macaron...
Sneak Peak: Burger Bar

Sneak Peak: Burger Bar

I’m  a major carnivore, and I love ordering my burgers like I’m concocting a complicated prescription for the perfect bite. So when I got word of this new burger joint that is super-soft opening last week, I knew I had to try it. Save for their logo’s homage to Shake Shack’s logo, the place is...

Get Free Minis at Cupcake Lab’s Grand Opening!

You all know how much I love Cupcake Lab, much more so because Ms. Cupcake Lab herself, Cay, is my bestest friend in the world.

Petit Cheese KitKat

Petit Cheese KitKat

I swear, people are out to sabotage me. Though I have a lot of goodies stashed in different crevices of my home, a lot of it come from caring people who think ToT should try this, or ToT cannot live without that. Case in point is my travel saveur Cheska who finds the most random,...

My Banana Cream Pie

My Banana Cream Pie

Right around the holidays, I was on the lookout for Nilla Wafers in Manila. I visited about 10 supermarkets, 2 S&Rs, called about 6 Rustan’s trying to hunt this elusive box of goodness down. Twitter followers wondered if I was experiencing cravings or just plain demented. I was in dire need of it because I...
Queso de Bola Cheesecake: An Indulgence by Irene

Queso de Bola Cheesecake: An Indulgence by Irene

A bunch of my foodie friends began raving about this certain Queso de Bola Cheesecake a couple of weeks ago, and since I’m all about the convincing powers of WOM (word of mouth), I had to try it out for myself. I love cheesecake, but I prefer the cheesier type to the saccharine and jello-laced...

The Designer Donut by J.Co Coming to MNL

I passed by SM Megamall for an errand the other day, and saw the build-up announcement by The Strip area of Building B. I am getting excited. I am not a big donut fan. Admittedly, I never caught on the Krispy Kreme craze and only ingest them when I have no other breakfast choice. There...

Cupcake Confidential

Cupcake Confidential

FML So I started my Monday with determination that TODAY was the day I begin the road to recovery; recovery of my figure, that is. So imagine my disdain when I arrive toting a lunch-pail full of juice cleanses for the day and see this sitting pretty on my office desk. A friend is developing...
Hello, I'm ToT and I'm a Lace Cookie-holic

Hello, I’m ToT and I’m a Lace Cookie-holic

Damn it. I’ve been cookiefied. So last week I Tumbler’d that I had spent PhP15k (almost $350) on these cookies. The responses were borderline vulgar, but it was a big order, and I had to share it to the world! During Hotel Elizabeth Cebu’s opening, someone gifted my parents with this tub of cookies from Les Chocolateries,called Dentelle Au Chocolat...

Quaintest Cappucino at Caffe Liberta a Firenze

It was a beautiful day in Firenze, and after after a very heavy Tuscan lunch of Bistecca Fiorentina, ToT & Bro needed to have a pick-me-upper to keep us from falling asleep, especially since we just came off a long plane ride from the other side of the world. We searched for: The Infamous Cappuccino Heart of Caffe Liberta...
