EuroCruise 2010: Food Finding in Istanbul

Back in Istanbul after visiting all the important mosques and palaces in the Old City, which is both an Asian and European city.

Seafood Paluto Feast at Pier One Cebu

Seafood Paluto Feast at Pier One Cebu

  Every time I’m in Cebu, I always crave for fresh seafood in the Cebu City area. Somehow, my Cebuano friends draw blanks when I ask for recommendations, so I always end up at Pier One in Park Mall because it’s the only branch in the Philippines that has a Paluto section with fresh seafood....

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...

Spice Fusion’s Authentic South East Asian Flavors

Spice Fusion Since I’m in Cebu right now for the upcoming Sinulog Festival, one of my priorities is definitely where to eat, aside from Hotel Elizabeth’s Flora Cafe, and where to take my friends out for an awesome meal.

Danish Smorrebrod at Aamann’s Deli

For those who want a little taste-test of Nordic food, it is imperative to have a Smorrebrod lunch. Aamanns My friend Macy...
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...

Middle Eastern Mediterranean Fare at New World Hotel’s M2M Cafe

Naumachia Ristorante Pizzeria, Roma

Naumachia Ristorante Pizzeria, Roma

Just like Piccolo Buco by the Trevi Fountain, it’s a rare find to discover authentic and delicious Italian restaurants by the Colosseum without being lured by the enticing view of the amphitheatre from your dining table. Roomie & I wanted meals that didn’t break the bank yet filled our appetites with quality meals. We decided...
