M.flores – Malabon Food Tour

General Luna Street in Malabon is a residential area peppered with some nice restaurants. This would be ideal residence for foodies. We were originally looking for Cocina Luna on this street.

Betsy’s Cake Center – Malabon Food Tour

The Malabon food trip is recently gaining prominence in mainstream and digital media so NATURALLY, I found myself in the area.  My tummy buddy and I were hoping to get into that Malabon Tricycle Food Tour.  It was sad that not all people from/in Malabon knows of it.

Fusion, Confusion: P. F. Chang’s – Mandaluyong City

I’m all into fusion, out-of-the-box ideas.  I think the world is so dynamic right now, one item does not fit into a single silo anymore; it’s possible it was created to be part of many silos. Such existential ideas sprung out of me after I ate at P.F. Chang’s in Shangri-La Mall. I just wanted dimsum. And noodles. Simple things in life, you know. But … Continue reading Fusion, Confusion: P. F. Chang’s – Mandaluyong City
