Cap off at Refinery

Posted on August 28th, 2014 by Kristel

When we were deciding on where to go for a night cap, we were hesitant about Refinery because we just wanted to try a new place which was not exactly a beer/wine kind of place. And as I was reading reviews, I could not make what Refinery really was. But we read good reviews on the salted caramel latte, we decided to just give it a go.

And I am glad we did. I would describe the ambiance as rustic, with all the wood that made up the place with great ambient lighting. It was a good place to relax, I say. And so I ordered their salted caramel latte (Php 140 – hot; Php 160 – iced). I had mine hot since we were seated inside (I would’ve ordered the iced if we were outside) because I was cold. Smile

Pork Buns at Tim Ho Wan

Posted on August 25th, 2014 by Kristel

New restaurants keep on sprouting here and there around the metro, a lot of them are international franchises. That certainly is not a bad thing for someone who loves to eat, except that people seem to be willing to line-up to the latest buzz there is. One of these restaurants is Tim Ho Wan, which is a Michelin star awardee (for their branch in Mong Kok) from Hong Kong.

So the journey began when we noticed how long the line was, quite intimidating if you ask me so I had to ask the people from the restaurant how long will it take for us to get a table. We were informed it will take around 30-45minutes to get seated, so we just threw caution to the wind and hoped for the best. The good thing about it was that the turn-over in this establishment was pretty quick so the line was not as painful as I had anticipated it to be.

CaliBurger’s Cheeseburger

Posted on May 7th, 2014 by Kristel

I have read quite a number of review of CaliBurger’s burger since it made its opening in the new Century City Mall in Makati. I am the type to hold off trying new hyped establishments to die down a little because I am scared of long lines. Anyway, glad to have finally tried CaliBurger.

So, we decided to hold the fries and just order the burger, which was the main point anyway. We had 2 cheeseburgers, I thought there was going to be some sort of a choice on the doneness of the patty. We were given a choice of what onions we would like our burgers to have (uncooked or grilled). It was the first time I heard of that option. Anyway, so after paying, we sat down and waited for our orders to come.

The Ramen Kings at Ramen Nagi

Posted on April 23rd, 2014 by Kristel

It has been a while since I had some ramen so when my sister who is currently based in Shanghai came to Manila for a short bit, she wanted to try out what was new in the city. Enter Ramen Nagi because at that time, we had been hearing a lot of raves about this establishment.

The line to be seated during a weekday was unbelievably long. But I have to give it to them because the people of Ramen Nagi were organized and trained. They knew what to do. One of which was they asked us to sit to wait and gave us a paper where we can think about what we wanted to order, all personalize from the type of noodles, the flavour, even up to the spicy level.

City Center Hotel in Baguio

Posted on April 19th, 2014 by Kristel

By now I am sure you guys have read about so many places in Baguio to stay at, myself included. Lately, there has been this trend in my life of doing last minute arrangements for quick getaways. In this case, I was trying to make it to the mountains before the temperature warms up. Funny thing was, I pinned down a room 4 days before our arrival… which happened to be a long weekend. Now, that was luck on my side, huh?

Anyway, limited choices that we had, I booked a room at City Center Hotel since it seemed to be in a convenient location and I read several reviews about it being new (or newly renovated, I am not too sure), so that is a good thing. Anyway, the hotel is located right smack in the middle of Session Road. It was a first for me to be staying somewhere in that area but I found it incredibly convenient because everywhere is walk-able. I did not even have to worry about drinking water supply as convenience stores are located very nearby.
