There are always some places that for one reason or another I take forever to try out. Sweet Bella was one of those places; it’s not anymore courtesy of a voucher I bought from CashCashPinoy but it still took a healthy amount of procrastination before Irene and I were able to redeem it. I've read a lot of nice things about their desserts but not really much about the food so we were not expecting much.

There was a time in my heyday when I could down an entire bottle of vino and, well, a whole lot of liquor.

A slew of Japanese ramen places have been sprouting like mushrooms all over the metro, looking like one of the new food trends in the city. The burgeoning popularity of ramen restaurants, in all its yellow stringy glory, has led to the neglect of its other noodly brothers. Moshi Koshi aims to rectify that, giving equal attention to ramen, udon and soba. Koshi refers to the state of noodles where they are at their best, tender and chewy, but this only lasts a few minutes.

A new restaurant recently popped up at the 2nd level of SM Megamall Atrium called Yabu. Yabu specializes in katsu, the short form of katsuretsu (cutlet), first invented in 19th century Japan and has evolved into a classic Japanese dish, available almost by default in most Japanese restaurants.

Another little quirky eatery, Mad Mark's, has popped up in the burgeoning foodie area that is Kapitolyo. This is the same area that gave rise to Charlie's Grind and Grill, the car wash cum burger shop.

Filipinos show their affection and celebration through food. We would literally give people the food on our plate just to make them feel at home. And what’s the ultimate symbol of Filipino culinary bliss? Lechon, or roasted pig. So imagine my delight, mixed with trepidation, when I was invited to a dinner with not one or two, but FOUR lechon piggies on the menu.

Nestled along the stretch of Katipunan fronting White Plains is a quaint bakery, Monsee's Chefs and Bakers, also known as Monsee's Café. The bakery’s beautiful white exterior is highlighted by two red doors. We've passed by it a couple of times but were hesitant to drop in, and we're kicking ourselves for that.

If you've been following my blog for a while, you would know my predilection for milk tea, like Serenitea, Chatime and Teatap. I actually first got to try Gong Cha in Hong Kong despite there being branches already in the Philippines, but they were situated a ways at both ends with me living right smack in the middle. Irene and I tried a couple and were instantly hooked and eager to get more when we came back but the locations of their branches were big hindrances.
