Recurring culinary pleasures

Delicious culinary experiences actually lead foodies to go back to restaurants where they had very satisfying meals coupled with efficient service and pleasant ambiance.

Contrasting ambiance, equally good food

This diner visited two restaurants, each with a different ambiance, but was pleased that both offer food worthy of a second or even third visit. One is in Tagaytay amid old trees and shrubs that evoke a tapestry for an almost “Gone with the Wind” feel, while the other is located in the very busy Greenbelt 5 in Makati, always teeming with apparently hungry men and women, of various ages and calling.

Canelones, Solomillo, other Catalan specialties–then brick-oven-baked panizza

Beef Stew in Chocolate Cream is simply fantastic

Filipinos, like a lot of foodies around the world, love all types of noodles or pasta dishes, such as native pancit, Chinese stir-fries, saucy Italian spaghetti, macaroni salads.

Extreme (yet satisfying) dining experiences


Over a two-week period, we visited two restaurants, quite different from each other, by way of food offerings, but satisfying. One gives an ultimate dining moment and the other invokes memories of true Pinoy cuisine that harks back to the time of hired cooks in private homes.
