Pan de Carbs

January 6, 2011

A good three blocks away from our office in IT Park lies bread heaven.

I’ve always been a carb-lover, a pan de sal hoarder, and a breadwhore. It does seem weird when hearing the word “bread” sounds so orgasmic.

SIAM Thai Cuisine and Missy Bonbon in Cagayan de Oro

October 14, 2010

August 19, 2010 – Rewind a few weeks back when I was celebrating with my family in Cagayan de Oro for my mom’s 54th birthday, I made two stops at two restaurants in Limketkai Center – Siam Thai Cuisine and Missy Bonbon.

See, Siam Thai Cuisine is also at the Ground Level of Ayala Terraces beside Cyma Restaurant and because I knew that it is another version of Krua Thai (which I absolutely adore, by the way), I keep putting off the day when I will finally get to eat there. It just so happens that I tried this Siam restaurant in Cagayan de Oro instead. Absolutely funnnyyy!

My friend Quennie’s brother owns the place and she sometimes manages the restaurant when she’s around. Peace, Q! Too bad she was sick when we were there. Below is a photo of their steamed fish and their famous bagoong rice. The fish they used is lapu-lapu which explains why this was priced at almost P200. The bagoong rice is as heavenly as I had expected. So delish! Do you know mixing the sliced onions also enhaces the flavor? Try it!

October 12, 2010

Lo and behold! Your favorite shabu-shabu dining in Cebu is also open at Robinsons Cybergate at J. Llorente St. cor. Don Gil Garcia St. and facing Fuente Osmena Circle. Our friends from Banawa area, Jones and also in Mango Square can now enjoy shabu-shabu dining at affordable prices!

The Shabu Way Dining in Cebu Snack Meals

The Shabu Shabu set meals are from P299-P499. Hopefully, I’d get to take a photo of their menu soon. You’ll also see my attempt at food photography there hahaha thanks so much for gawsy Anton to trust my lens skills. The first batch of photos on their first menu, by the way, was taken by a Sony T7 series point and shoot camera. These new babies are now taken with my Canon Rebel XS or Canon 1000D in 50mm lens and Canon Speedlite 430EX ii.

Pork Katsudon – a personal favorite of mine. Hardly a vegetable eater, I find taugi in ANY meal completes the dish.

The New Taproom at Gustavian Ayala Center Cebu

September 27, 2010

Fancy an epicurean dining experience in Cebu? With their menu specially prepared by Swedish chef Robert Lilja and Austrian chef Dietmar Dietrich, the Gustavian Ayala is super popular with their hearty and, yes, organic meals. Although its main branch is in Banilad, the Gustavian in Ayala Terraces is slowly ganing the same popularity and demand for their deli that offers homemade European sausages, smoked meats, seafoods, and bread selections!
