NEW RESTO ALERT: Chiringuito by Barcino

Our latest Boracay trip led to the newly opened Chiringuito by Barcino located at Station B. We were lucky to drop by on the first opening day, and even got to meet Chef Nicko

We just had dinner when we arrived at Chiringuito so we just ordered coffee, sangria, jamon and bruschetta. Place was a bit full since it was opening day and there was even a band playing reggae/ salsa music. 

Chiringuito has that relaxed but classy-vibe that is perfect for date-nights or bar-hopping with friends. Dining here is also possible although we really haven't tried the food. 

Bruschetta and Strawberry White Mocha. I was feeling a bit cold so having coffee is perfect. The coffee tastes good and dessert-ish. But the bruschetta! Really pairs nicely with the Jamon Serrano that Chef Nicko carved for us. 

Tropical Sangria is a light, fruity, and refreshing drink. This is served in a big sangria glass (about the size of 2 orders in other bars) so you're good with one drink. 

Or not! Haha, here's Sangria Tinto. It has a bolder taste compared to the tropical sangria. I suggest pairing this with the jamon. 

Overall, we enjoyed our visit to Chiringuito and my cousins even went back the following night for a second round. I was packing my maleta for an early morning trip back to Manila so boo hoo hoo.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Saigosan in Uptown Mall

Konnichiwa Saigosan! A new and funky izakaya recently opened at Uptown Mall headed by Chef Chris Oronce. This izakaya not only serves delectable dishes but is also a visual-feast. Inspired by animes, mangas, and JPop culture, Saigosan even has a train wherein you can hop from Kyoto to Osaka without a JR Pass! 

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! 

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.
