Cheesecake Etc.

Cheesecake Etc.
(near Banawe)

After going to Shuin, Beloved and I had dessert at Cheesecake Etc. Located right across the aforementioned place, Beloved already did some research and managed to convince me to try it since one of their cheesecakes sounded interesting. Oh, and this place serves cheesecakes. Surprising, eh?

Tully's

Tully's
(Sendai, Japan)

This is a part of my Sendai, Japan trip. If you want to have an overview of my entire Japan “Food Odyssey”, I suggest you start with my 7-Eleven review and follow the different links from there.

During my third day in Japan, I made a small stop at Tully’s. This coffee chain is pretty much similar to Starbucks or Coffee Bean. In fact, according to Beloved, one opened up in Manila some months ago. Unfortunately, it didn’t really catch on and closed down before I managed to try it.

Costa Coffee

Costa Coffee
(Eastwood)

Beloved and I had coffee at Costa Coffee Eastwood branch last week. This coffee chain might be my current favorite among chains, not counting “third wave” independent coffee shops or fast food coffees (which, honestly, some are not half-bad). After participating in SGD Coffee’s Coffee Appreciation Workshop, we feel more qualified to review and appreciate places that serve good coffee. For me, this imported British coffee chain that we frequent a lot is one of them.

Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons
(Cubao)

Beloved and I had a late brunch at Tim Hortons a couple of days ago. This Canadian chain is actually quite famous, and apparently, it beats McDonald’s in Canada, according to our friends there. It’s not our first time trying out the chain, actually. We’ve been to the Eastwood branch before and Beloved has been visiting this chain’s other branches quite frequently, which has been popping up all over the Metro, whenever she has the chance to. This particular branch has only recently opened at Cubao’s KIA Theatre and is actually quite close to home. In addition, it’s apparently open twenty-four hours.

It’s planner season once again in the Philippines. I’ve already started my CBTL stamp collecting, but I’ve been craving the coffee of a new player in Metro Manila: Tim Hortons! The Canada-based fast food restaurant is finally here! The first time I tried it was at Eastwood with Inggo.

We had another art tambay last Sunday. But before I get to that post, a few weeks ago we had another food trip with our friend. This time we tried Genki Sushi at UP Town Center.

Recession Coffee

Recession Coffee

One random Saturday, Inggo & I met with a friend for a food trip at Eastwood. After eating at 2 restaurants (Ramen Kuroda & Beef Barn), we wanted coffee. I suggested we try this place because of its unique selling point. This is Recession Coffee, which is located inside the Digital Walker store in Eastwood mall.

Amici

Beloved and I ate at Amici a couple of times over the past couple of months. The first time was dinner on a whim, looking for what’s open. Amici happened to sound satisfying as I was craving pizza that day, and so we went.
