NEW RESTO ALERT: Ichiba Japanese Market

Ichiba Japanese Market is a newly opened restaurant at Newport Mall in Pasay City. I was excited to try it since we love Japanese food but the place is just too far (I live in Manila). Luckily, the opportunity to dine came up when we accompanied my aunt and uncle to the airport.


(Kuromon) Ichiba is a famous market in Osaka, Japan and to save cost, the "market" was brought here to us in Manila. What's interesting here in Ichiba is that you can actually choose or even catch your own food (seafood, rather).

The kids and the kids-at-heart will enjoy checking out the fishies, clammies, and sebastian and friends at the "aquarium" area.


Here's what I like though --- Paiten Ramen set with karaage. This is a half serving of ramen. The noodles are chewy (al dente) which I like and the broth is creamy and salted lightly. The ajitsuke tamago is perfect although it would be nicer (I think) if the yolk is orange-y (but that's just me). I wasn't able to eat the karaage though because we ordered tons of other dishes that I am quite full already by the time my ramen was served. Reason to go back! Hehe


Daughter ordered the Gyudon. I had a tiny bite (sans rice) and I love it! Think bacon-beef. It is best to eat the gyudon as soon as it is served because the beef will still be crispy by then. Yum! Avoid taking pics for more than 5 minutes because the egg will also harden.


We love takoyaki and maybe I was expecting that its going to be mind-blowing so I was a bit disappointed when it turned out to be the opposite. I mean, if you've tried the ones at Hana's in Little Tokyo or you've eaten takoyaki in Japan, you'll know what I mean.



Will be updating this post for the other dishes that we ordered so do drop by again. :)

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!
