Kazunori Japanese Restaurant and Kazu Cafe at the Mazda Showroom in Makati

Been hearing about this new Japanese restaurant in Makati which is situated within the Mazda car dealership showroom along Chino Roces Ave. Kazunori Japanese Restaurant is apparently from the same people behind Mendoroko Ramenba and Ramen Yushoken.

The restaurant has three dining concepts: a casual cafe by the entrance (Kazu Cafe), an upscale sushi bar at the middle, and the main dining area at the back. The main dining also sports an open-kitchen bar table which can accommodate 10 persons.


The place, while unassuming, was packed with diners on a Saturday evening. We didn't have prior reservation, but was lucky to get a table at the main dining area.

For appetizers, we got the Kakiage (P420) tempura which I noticed most tables also have.

We dropped by for a very late lunch one Saturday afternoon, to sample some of Roadster's signature roasts and dishes. The place wasn't hard to find, but parking was a bit of a problem. A parking lot is currently in the works to cater to dining customers in the area soon.

Roadster Roasters is a haven for meat-lovers. Their specialties include a 12-hour slow-cooked beef, 4-hr roasted pork barbecue ribs, and a crackling brick oven-roasted pork belly.

Bonchon K-Tastic Korean Adventure in Manila- New and Improved Bonchon Favorites

It has been 7 years since Bonchon introduced the Korean fried chicken in the Philippines. Still, it continues to come up with new and exciting dishes that take every Filipino to a k-tastic Korean experience. 

Last week, I set off to a gastronomic Korean adventure at Bonchon's Ayala Malls The 30th branch in Pasig.

With a suitcase, sunglasses, chopsticks and a checklist in tow, I got ready for a k-tastic day like no other.


Touchdown, Bonchon.

First thing I noticed was that Bonchon revamped its interiors into a modern barn setting with that Western meets Asian vibe. Lighting in stores were also improved to perfectly capture those Instagram-worthy Bonchon k-tastic moments.

Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu Ayala Malls The 30th- Up to 50% Discount via Eatigo

I've written all about Eatigo on my previous post and the top 10 reasons why every foodie needs it on their mobile phones. Now, let me share my first experience in using the app and how we saved almost Php1000 at one of their partner establishments Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu in Ayala Malls The 30th.


We've always wanted to visit the new Ayala Malls The 30th in Pasig, and finally, we found another good reason to visit the newly-built mall.

Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu is a franchise from Akasuka, Tokyo (home to the best and authentic tempura in Japan) which specializes in tendon (tempura donburi) or tempura rice bowl.


Tendon Akimitsu was brought by the same group behind Ramen Nagi, which on the other hand  , specializes on ramen.

The two restaurant concepts stand beside each other and shares a common dining area. Cross-ordering between Ramen Nagi and Tendon Akimitsu is allowed, so that customers can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Since we made reservations at Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu via the Eatigo app, cross-ordering was still allowed, but items ordered from Ramen Nagi won't be included in the discount.

I booked for the 3:00pm time slot with a corresponding 50% discount on our total bill.

Cochon555 US Tour is a nose-to-tail culinary tour dedicated to support heritage pig farmers and breeders, and to educate chefs and foodies on how they can utilize and enjoy old world livestock.

It is a one-of-a-kind friendly competition for a cause of 5 chefs, cooking 5 heritage breed pigs, paired with fine wines from 5 winemakers- hence the name Cochon555.


Since the tour coincided with my recent trip to Chicago last April, it was an event I couldn't afford to miss. Luckily, I scored 2 VIP tickets for me and my cousin courtesy of Dining Out Chicago. The $200 ticket gave us early admission to the event, plus exclusive sommelier and cocktail competition tastings.

Hap Chan Seafood Resto- Reintroduction to Classic and Affordable Chinese Cuisine

Long before these Chinese restaurants in Banawe, there was a "Chinatown in Manila" known to be brimming with tea houses, serving traditional, no-frills, and delicious Chinese fare.


Here, you can find the original Chinese restaurants of Manila packed with loyal patrons patiently waiting for their dimsum, noodles, and congee. A cup of tea on one hand, a newspaper on the other, and a Chinese feast laid on the table- it's the usual daily grind in the heart of chinatown. 

One of those restaurants that still exists up until to today, is Hap Chan.


4 Ways That Studying Abroad Can Change Your Life

Studying abroad is a unique opportunity that many young adults do not take advantage of in their lifetime. Reasons for this may include not wanting to leave the comfort of home or go far away from family and friends. Perhaps they are nervous about living in an environment where the culture is different, and language barrier is a concern. However, those who take the leap and choose to be adventurous and study abroad seldom regret doing so. Many times, they even choose to stay in the country in which they studied, get a job, marry, and have a family. Much to their family’s dismay, some never return back to their home country for more than a quick visit. This article will share how studying abroad can change one’s life.

Jasmine- Unlimited Dimsum at New World Makati Hotel

I can't express how much we love dimsum. An ordinary weekday night for us usually involves going to Banawe for some late night dimsum fix. It is probably our go-to restaurant after a long day's work. Plus, with various restaurants offering promos and discounts for their dimsum selections, we feel that it's the most practical place to enjoy our favorite dimsum, without burning our wallets.

However, there are certain days when we just want to splurge a little and experience some fancy dimsum delights. Since dining in hotels costs more than the usual, we often just order one of each dimsum variant and slowly savor each bite. So when we came across Jasmine's unlimited dimsum promo, there was no way we could let it pass.

This was from a few years back, so I am not sure if they still serve the same dimsum items for their promo. But let me just share some of the items we tried that day.

Steamed Dimsum

Shrimp Dumplings, "Har Gao" (P225)


Leading the line up is of course, hakaw! These were very plump and the skin was translucent and chewy just the way I like it.

Steamed Shrimp, Spinach Dumplings (P190)

Shū Reflexology and Foot Therapy- Foot Reflexology and Back Massage in San Juan

After weeks of traveling in the US, I am finally back in Manila! Some things I missed the most? A really good full body massage, and a relaxing foot spa. Good thing I discovered this new place in San Juan called Shū Reflexology and Foot Therapy.


Shu Reflexology and Foot Therapy specializes in foot reflexology which involves the application of pressure to the feet, with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. 

I usually frequent spa establishments for full body massages, and nail salons to service my foot spa needs. Shū Reflexology and Foot Therapy hits two birds in one stone with their Foot Reflexology with Back Massage which we tried last weekend.

Foot Reflexology with Back Massage:
1 hour & 20 mins- P550
1 hour & 40 mins.- P680
2 hours- P825

While the foot therapy didn't involve choosing a polish for my nails, it allowed me to choose a signature foot soak before the session. There are three types of soak available: Ginger Soak, Green Tea Soak, and Salt Detox Bath.

I chose the ginger soak that targets to improve circulation, and helps with conditions like arthritis, rheumatism, and varicose veins, while D got the green tea soak that helps detoxify, soothe, and heal stressed skin.

We were led to our own cozy private room equipped with two large massage chairs, a tv for us to watch some shows during the session, slippers, towels, and massage clothes.

US Potato Vegetarian Poutine Recipe- Go Healthy & Nutritious This Lenten Season

There are several misconceptions about US potatoes being unhealthy and high in calories. "US potatoes will make your thighs bigger.", "US potatoes are high in carbohydrates that will eventually make you gain weight.", "Eating US potatoes have no nutritional value hence they are just empty calories." These are just some of the myths we commonly hear from other people when talking about US Potatoes.

Contrary to these beliefs, US Potatoes are in fact one of the healthiest and most nutritious types of food. US Potatoes, when prepared and cooked properly, can offer a lot of health benefits to the body.

In this post, I'll be sharing a simple and healthy US Potato recipe, while discussing more about the nutritional facts of US Potatoes.

Bai's Boneless Lechon Cebu: Crackling Pork Belly Goodness in Alabang- Ato Ni Bai!

The festive yuletide holidays may be long over, but that doesn't mean we can no longer enjoy the much-anticipated food on every Pinoy feast or gathering. The famous roasted pig of the Philippines, is probably one of the most sought-after dish in the country, both by locals and tourists. Holiday or not, we crave and give in to this glorious roasted pork dish that is Lechon.

Last week, I was introduced to Bai's Boneless Lechon when I received this box of happiness.


With Cebu being the lechon capital of the Philippines, it wasn't a surprise when internationally acclaimed chef, foodie and traveler Anthony Bourdain, dubbed cebu lechon as the "best pig ever".

However, as much as we want to enjoy a little piece of Cebu lechon heaven, traveling all the way to Cebu is just too impractical. Unless you have relatives from the Queen City of the South who can bring you some on a regular basis, then you'll just have to suffice yourself with the classic lechon from Manila.

Good thing I don't have to travel far just to get my hands on this glorious and heavenly crackling porchetta. You'll be happy to learn that Bai's Boneless Lechon Cebu is just located in Alabang, and delivers to most parts of Metro Manila.


Ching Kee Beef Noodles and Shrimp Wontons- Homestyle Noodle House in Banawe

Our regular weekday night normally involves driving along Banawe, scouting for new restaurants to try. This may sound costly to do on a regular basis, but we do our best to look for affordable places to eat without hurting our pockets. While we have our go-to restaurants for our usual quick fix dinners, we are always on the lookout for new and affordable eats. 

So when we saw this small noodle house with a red signage called Ching Kee Beef Noodles in Banawe, we decided to check what it has to offer.

The two founders, Pat and Tammy Ngamari, wanted to introduce the flavors of the East, to the growing number of foodies in the US, hence, they came up with an original bbq concept, that will showcase the playful and complex flavors of Thai cuisine.
