Va Bene!

Va Bene in Makati located at a Petron gas station in EDSA pasay road is so far the BEST pasta I have ever tasted! Interesting location for a best 2012 restaurant in Esquire. Usually, food at the gas stations are fast food not freshly handmade food. 
Small space and  crowded .

I love their mushroom soup with truffle oil! superb!

Chez Karine Bakery

Best Vanilla Pudding! the Panna Cotta was just ok we prefer the pudding , its so creamy! there's Muscovado Pudding for diabetic people not too sweet.

some of the macaroons are perfectly cooked not chewy but most of what I ate is chewy.  I liked the earl grey and lemon a bit tangy.

A Portuguese Food in Macau. A MUST -EAT restaurant in Macau
Just take a taxi going there. Almost all the taxi drivers know that restaurant just tell them the Chinese word of A Lorcha. Its always packed here every lunch, so if I were you I would reserve a seat a head of time.

Its been a while since a blog. Well, I've been lazy lately haha. I found may another favorite food when I  visited in Seoul , Korea. Its Dak Galbi! Korean foods are perfect to eat when its cool weather. Especially when rainy season! Here in the Philippines there are only two seasons, summer and rainy! the rainy season here starts on July so its perfect to eat some spicy Korean food. Btw, here in Malate ,Manila have a lot of delicious Korean restaurants. I miss eating this! Anyway, here are some of the pictures that I captured when we ate there.
