Date-Night Chronicles: Las Flores

Dinner at Las Flores was mine and JodiesDaddy’s Valentine’s dinner date.  Actually, if you want to be technical about it, it wasn’t really a date, “date”-night because we were with friends and it was a day before Valentine’s day.  But it really doesn’t matter, does it? It was our first time in Las Flores, so we relied on the…

Date Night Chronicles:  Wildflour Cafe + Bakery

The first time we ate at Wildflour, we thought it was overrated and the food we ordered wasn’t too great.  We still went back several times after, but we still weren’t sold.   Fast forward to one month ago.  I took a visiting colleague there for dinner and suddenly, I felt transformed.  The food WAS…

Date Night Chronicles:  Barcino

JodiesDaddy and I are reviving our once-a-week date nights.  And for this week, we chose to unwind and destress with drinks, tapas and a paella in Barcino.  We used to frequent another Spanish place more, Beso Cucino Vinoteka but it has since closed.  Nonetheless, Barcino was a good choice especially since we were both not too hungry…

Prime 101

THIS.WAS.THE.BOMB: One Kilo of US Prime Rib Eye cooked and charred to perfection from Prime 101. Met up with JodiesDaddy’s law school friends for an evening of MEAT! Not only did we have this steak (shown above), we also had an additional 500grams of their Prime 101 Signature Steak, which was even better than this!…

Date-Night Chronicles: Sariwon Korean Barbecue

Bonifacio High Street Central JodiesDaddy and I had an impromptu date night at Sariwon Korean Barbeque. We’ve always avoided eating at Sariwon (or any other Korean restaurant for that matter) as we were worried we would end up comparing it to our favorite Korean restaurant, Manna. But we took the risk. And boy oh boy,…

Date-Night Chronicles: CYMA, a taste of something old and something new

Cyma is not a new date place for JodiesDaddy and I. However, we hadn’t been there recently. And when we were thinking of a Date-Night restaurant, we decided to re-visit one of our favorites. Instead of having our usual orders, JodiesDaddy and I opted to order dishes we haven’t had before. We decided on “something…

Date-Night Chronicles: Ogetsu Hime

5th Floor Skypark, SM Aura Ever since I arrived back from Japan, I’ve been craving for sushi and sashimi. Thankfully, I was finally able to satisfy that craving at Ogetsu Hime – a relatively new restaurant at SM Aura which specializes in Teppanyaki, Sukiyaki, Sushi and Sashimi. We had: Unagi sushi – only JodiesDaddy ate…

Date-Night Chronicles: Chili’s

Greenbelt 5 JodiesDaddy and I capped our Friday evening last week with a couple of friends. What better place to unwind than good ol’ Chili’s. JodiesDaddy had: Triple Smoked Burger – a new offering at Chili’s. I had: Fish and Chips. This is how I like the batter of my fish and chips – crispy…

Date-Night Chronicles: The Goose Station (Deal Grocer Menu)

The first/last time we were at The Goose Station, we were completely blown away by our degustation experience. So last December, when Deal Grocer came out with another fantastic deal it, we did not think twice and got ourselves (together with a couple of good friends) some vouchers (mind you, it was about a 40%…

Date-Night Chronicles: a Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante

JodiesDaddy and I were looking for a not-so expensive pizza place in Glorietta. It was part of our treat to Jodie (who wanted to eat pizza) for getting higher grades this 2nd term. We initially thought of Shakey’s but we were the 8th in line. No thank you. We were hungry. Then we thought of…

Date-Night Chronicles: Saboten

For the past few weeks, JodiesDaddy and I have not been trying out new restaurants as much as we’d like to or as much as we used to. I kind of miss it, to be honest. Luckily, we still were able to visit one new place before the year ends (hopefully, not the last!) —…

Date-Night Chronicles (October 5): URBN Bar & Kitchen

I always see URBN’s humongous signage on my way home each day. It’s located where Pier 1 at the Fort used to be (side note: Pier 1 has a sentimental value to JodiesDaddy and I. It was one of the first few places we went to when were not yet even boyfriend-girlfriend haha). And it’s…
