Morphing Into A Foodaholic

My family loves to eat but it was a friend, B.G. who introduced me to gastronomic delights in the late 1990's. I remember the nights when we (along with other friends) would roam the streets of Nakpil and other streets in Malate just to satisfy our food cravings. Our fave pit-stop then was Hap Chan in Malate and Whistlestop in Shangrila Plaza or Makati.

There was also a time when another foodie friend recommended RJ's Bulalo near Boni Avenue Circle. This was a very memorable dinner with B. The bulalo itself was delicious but he made it extra special by surprising me with .... wine! We had so much fun and laughter that night. Imagine the pairing- wine and bulalo.

And I can't forget the time we dined at Circles in Makati Shangri-La. After stuffing ourselves with food and dessert, he suddenly left me for about half an hour and when he came back, he was holding this box of cherries that his aunt just brought from Hong Kong. Yum! Glad that the resto didn't charge us for corkage.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
