NEW RESTO ALERT: Dekada

This new restaurant in Fairview Terraces pays homage to Filipino heroes and momentous events from the Spanish era to the 50's till the 90's.

And it also happen to be that we dined at Dekada last August 21 so its a historical day too. Care to guess why August 21st is a National Holiday in the Philippines ;)





The interior is a combination of vintage with a modern twist.



Citrus Salad. So refreshing. I can eat several bowls of this.



Milo Godzilla. I highly recommend this especially if you love chocolates, milo and sweets. Two thumbs up!



Binagoongan Fried Rice. I love binagoongan fried rice but sadly, I suddenly stopped eating rice for almost two months now. The urge to taste is so great since but I forced myself to look the other way and saw the kare-kare. Hahaha.


Kare-Kare. I seldom enjoy kare-kare because this is really a difficult dish to master, not to mention that it takes hours to cook it. But they nailed it! The oxtail was very soft and gelatinous (the way I like it) and the peanut sauce is real peanut creamy (you know what I mean, not the powdered one).



Boneless Crispy Pata. I was really focused on the kare-kare. Sorry. :D




Dilis Fried Rice.



Roast Chicken. Fall-off-the-bone roast chicken. Very flavorful with hints of herbs and spices. No need for the dipping sauce because it will just ruin the taste- trust me on this. This is my second favorite dish here, the first is the kare-kare.



Puto Bumbong. You can order your puto bumbong fix here without waiting for the Christmas season because its available all year round. I just don't like the cheese, grated coconut and muscovado sugar will do. ;)



Halo-Halo. The Filipino food experience is never complete without halo-halo. What's nice with Dekada's is that they serve it in a coconut shell and present it to you like an art piece.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hain in Boracay

Aside from being one of the top beaches of the world, Boracay is also known for its diverse food and restaurant choices. And on that note, I'm happy to share that we discovered a newly opened restaurant called- Hain. 

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
