Laguna Food Trip: Joel’s Town in San Pablo City

Liemposilog chopseuy Joels Town

What foodie place you shouldn’t miss when in San Pablo? I got to say its Joel’s Town restaurant. :) Ang lagi kong binalik-balikan sa kanila is their Liemposilog with chopsuey. It’s a hole-in-wall type of establishment, not a posh place, it’s more like a big size carenderia. It does not have fancy decors, no aircon but they definitely deliver on what counts most - delightful food offerings. Think Pinoy food favorites like pancit, sisig, lumpia, liempo, silog meals, they have it and it won’t cost you arm and leg to order a serving or two. Continue Reading

Lumban Barong Tagalog for Made to Order and Ready to Wear!!!

macalagay embroidery lumban

Special occasions and events usually require guests to don on formal garb. For the lady you can go really traditional and have a baro’t saya Filipiniana gown, while for the men barong tagalog is the top choice. The upcoming President Aquino’s SONA on Monday would be the prime occasion to watch a parade of elaborate and bonggang tradisyonal na kasuotan.  But for us normal folks, usually gowns and barong tagalog are reserve for occasions such as weddings. You agree? :) Last week Titus and I went to Manila and Laguna armed with a list of Continue Reading

Last Tuesday night Cebu’s Waterfront Food Concept Group had a special event dubbed as ‘Sweet Avalanche’ featuring the latest desserts and pastries additions on the menu of Madeleine and Treff.

No chocoholic will be Continue Reading

Cebu Restaurant Review: Big Flat Bread Pizza and Pasta

Big Flat Bread Godfather Pizza

New restaurants are sprouting in Metro Cebu that it’s challenging to maintain a list of new dining establishments and their specialties. I tried to keep such a list before for you never know when a craving hits you and a list would have come in handy. But trying all new restaurants would seriously wreak havoc to your finances so am glad then that there are group buying sites like Groupon Philippines with deal offers for restaurants I haven’t yet tried. It allows me to try out new restaurants at a discount just like in the case of Big Flat Bread Continue Reading

Must Try Budget Restaurants in SM Cebu

Neo Neo Menu Restaurant

Say you are a tourist on a 3D/2N Cebu vacation or even on a one day trip and it’s your first time in the Queen City of the South.  You happen to find yourself in SM Cebu and suddenly got hungry so you wonder what’s the best local restaurant to try out? The answer would of course depend entirely on you and your companions and what kind of food you are currently craving. But if you ask me for Penfires recommendations on local restaurants inside this giant mall, the top picks are  Neo Neo, Dimsum Break, Ayer’s Lechon and Flame It Burger. Except Continue Reading

Lechon, chorizo, utap, dried mango, danggit, pusit in your baggage – we definitely know where you’ve been! Gikan ka sa Cebu and these items are your pasalubong from the Queen City of the South. =) In the Philippines vacations are synonymous to pasalubong. It’s almost unthinkable to go home after an out of town trip and not to be bringing anything special from the place you've just visited. There are different pasalubong choices when you are in Baguio and other Philippine provinces. If you need ideas to fill your Cebu pasalubong shopping bag, Continue Reading

Tara Na Sa Divisoria! For The Love of Bargains and Good Buys

Divisoria 168 Mall

“Can we go to Divisoria? We should go to Divi!” Urges me whenever I am planning a trip to Manila and luckily for me I almost always made it to this bargain mecca before I go back to Cebu. Have you been to Divi? =) I clearly remember the first time I was there, I was with a Divisoria neophyte too and we were bringing a car. Clueless and warned repeatedly that ‘parking is horrendous. Park as soon as you can find a space”, an image of us just going round and round the area without finding one stuck on my head. So after passing the Binondo Continue Reading

Halo-Halo Oddly Beautiful Pinoy Icy Treat

Halo-halo icy treat

In a recent episode of CNN show "Parts Unknown", host and chef Anthony Bourdain was introduced to Halo – Halo. “Oddly beautiful” were his description of this favorite Pinoy icy treat. Surprisingly, he got his first taste of this cold dessert from a Jollibee branch in LA - Koreatown. Sometimes it makes you wonder how small the world has become. A pinoy favorite available in an area in the United States populated with Koreans. :) But yah the world is becoming smaller and smaller, many contends it’s no longer 6 degrees of separation but rather it Continue Reading
