Revisiting Yaku at The Podium Mall

Yaku Japanese Grill is one of the oldies at The Podium. We used to frequent this years ago but stopped when my daughter entered big school which was located on the other side of the metro. Then we're back around 2017 for a couple of times, and then the lockdowns happened. But thanking the lockdowns because we've been visiting the mall on a regular basis and has happily re-acquainted ourselves with Yaku. 



Aside from serving delicious Japanese food (fresh tasting sashimis!), Yaku is also reasonably priced. Serving porting is also good for sharing. 


Spicy Sashimi. I love this! Creamy with a crunch. A perfect starter!


Moriawase. When you crave for sashimi but can't decide what. Yum!


Salmon Bowl. Salmon sashimi on a bed of hot rice. 


Grilled Quail Eggs. We don't get to eat quail eggs because it's not always available in the grocery, so this is a treat!


Chirashi Bowl. A collection of sashimi plus rice. 



For dessert, Yaku has matcha ice-cream. Alcoholic drinks are also available.

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! 

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!
