NEW RESTO ALERT: Elephant Grounds

We've been frequenting The Podium after the lockdown has eased its restrictions last year and Elephant Grounds has been one of our favorite restaurant discovery. 

We were looking for a nice place to have coffee and dessert so we ended up at Elephant Grounds. I think we also wanted to dine here but the tables were full so we went to another restaurant. 

Elephant Grounds is a specialty coffeeshop that was founded in Hong Kong. Aside from the usual espresso, there are several coffee choices here. 

We had French Vanilla and Salted Caramel lattes on our first visit and both are so memorable that we scheduled another round. 

But it was during our second visit when we discovered affogato and waffle. OMG moment for us. And we're hooked- line and sinker! 

The affogato was so creamy and rich. Perfect blend of gelato and espresso. 

And the waffle was the perfect coffee companion. Portion is good for sharing BUT it was so delish, you'll regret if you share! hahaha

Elephant Grounds also serve food that's perfect for lunch or dinner.

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.

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!
