Ok, I have just joined a weekend market to really try and put my dishes out and see how the customers will react. Made sure the dishes were unique so I would stand out, made sure they saw the food in real time and the serving size by having a sample on display. I did this for 2 days, I actually paid for Continue reading “Galileo Enoteca Mandaluyong (and what I learnt about food)”
This place was probably one of my top favorite places to visit if not for the lines. With that said, I still think it is worth at least a visit. This is only our third time to visit Continue reading “Locavore Brixton”
When my girlfriend and I were deciding where to spend our holy week/Easter weekend vacation, she suggested Angeles City Pampanga. She said it would help me with what I’m trying to do and have absolute fun doing it. Being the great girlfriend that she is Continue reading “Gastro Trip to Angeles City”
This is the 3rd year that I have gone to Madrid Fusion, this year was different (in a good way) for me. The difference isn’t that there was a massive improvement to the event, and there was. The difference was that I was in learning mode; I went there to learn, absorb Continue reading “What I learned from Madrid Fusion Manila 2017”
With the first experiment ending up too salty, I decided to adjust the amount of salt but keep the dried herbs and sugar to hopefully appreciate or at least understand the taste without the extreme wall of saltiness when I bite into it. Continue reading “Dry Curing Experiment No. 2”
We were supposed to go to another restaurant that we have been looking forward to visiting, but buffet just kept popping into my head. I’m not really sure why I wanted to go to a buffet, I wasn’t on a diet that week or was I Continue reading “Guevarra’s by Chef Laudico”
When they announced their opening in Makati, my girlfriend and I decided to not be part of the rush for their opening. A few weeks after their opening should mellow down the hype enough, we also decided to call over a week ahead to make sure we had slots Continue reading “Zubuchon Makati”
Planning for date night with my girlfriend, she somehow found or came across Sangkap (probably on Facebook). The timing was perfect, I was craving for some Filipino dishes.
We checked their menu online and decided to go with Cebu Lechon Sinigang Continue reading “Sangkap Portico Pasig”
Forgot how I heard about this new place (it was still on its soft opening when we visited), but I read somewhere that the executive chef of Yuan was the executive chef of Locavore.
We decided to give it a try and see if it was as good as Locavore and as Continue reading “Yuan Pasig”
Store bought bacon is cheap, keeps for a very long time and it’s not bad at all. There really is no good reason to make my own bacon at home, other than “I want to do it”.
The no nitrate bacon seems like a nice route to take as well, I personally have no problems with consuming regular bacon with nitrate or Continue reading “Dry Curing Experiment No. 1”
