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.

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity! 

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!
