Subic Wonders: Geo Gu Jang



On our way to Subic, I had a sudden craving for Korean food. Luckily, a few blocks away from our hotel, we found Geo Gu Jang Korean Japanese Restaurant



Located at the second floor, Geo Gu Jang is a very spacious yet simple restaurant. 

What I really love about Korean restaurants is the abundance of banchan, or appetizers. Though always a bit spicy for my palate, I like how healthy Koreans prepare their food.

Subic Bay Venezia Hotel



Though I've always go to Subic since I was a child, I've never spent a night there until a few weeks ago, when our travelers' itch took us to Subic Bay Venezia Hotel.

The hotel is conveniently located at the heart of SBMA. It's one block away from Harbour Point Mall, Freeport Exchange, and a few blocks away from Waterfront Road (where most bars and restaurants are located).

Sushi, Rolls and Sashimi Overload at Genji-M!



Much as I want to control my appetite, I let go of all the restraint whenever I go to a Japanese restaurant. I couldn't help gobbling up sushi, rolls, sashimi and other Japanese specialties. That's why during the day I was going to visit Genji-M, I knew that I'll be throwing dieting off the window. I just adore Japanese food!

Genji-M is a Japanese-Korean restaurant located in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City.

The place may look small as you enter the premises, but it was only half of the whole space as they have a lot of private rooms for groups. 





I was in awe watching the chefs prepare our dinner. Genji-M's manager, Ms. JM, says that the seafood is selected carefully and bought the same day that it will be served to maintain its freshness.

Kuppa Roastery & Cafe



After we paid homage to modern Ilonggo cuisine with Sarsa, we drove to another Negrense restaurant: Kuppa Roastery & Cafe

As my Ilonggo friend who brought us to this place, Kuppa is one of his favorite hangouts whenever he goes home to Bacolod. Trust an Ilonggo foodie and you'll never go wrong. 




While my friends are admiring the dessert display, I was ogling at this huge coffee grinder. Too bad I had to say goodbye to the lovely machine as we were seated upstairs.

Yabu Craft Cocktails by Erwan Heussaff




I headed out to Yabu one evening, not for katsu, but for the newest addition to their menu: the Yabu Craft Cocktails curated by Erwan Heussaff. 



Erwan Heussaff, a successful restaurateur, has created 7 cocktails on the menu with Takuyi Suzuki, a famous Japanese bartender, in mind. 

Each cocktail has only 4 to 6 ingredients, like the Japanese prefer their cocktails. All drinks are sake, shochu (soju) or whiskey based. 




Along with bar chows Yabu has prepared exclusively for that special evening, we were able to try some of the 7 Yabu Craft Cocktails.

Lugang Cafe



There are times that we only get to see every once in a while, and this was one of those moments. One of my friends went home for his annual vacation, and as tradition dictates in our group, we had a lovely dinner at Lugang Cafe

Lugang Cafe is an international restaurant brand offering mainly authentic Taiwenese dishes. 

I had a taste of Lugang Cafe last Mega Food Tour, and I was excited to visit it again to try more dishes. I was excited to bring my friends along too. 

For starters, we ordered Steamed Shrimp and Pork Shiao Mai (Php 288, 8 pcs) and their bestselling Steamed Pork Xiao Long Bao (Php 248, 8 pcs).

I could say that their Xiao Long Bao was truly one of the best I've tried so far. It can be challenging to eat, but it's worth it! 

We also had Spicy Sliced Offals (Php 280) and Three-Cup Chicken (Php 320).
