Our latest food trip sent us driving more than an hour away from our place in Cainta. It was my husband who discovered it after watching it being featured on a show one Sunday. As it turns out, Kainan sa Tabing Lawa has been one of Tanay’s famous restaurants since the 60’s.
Lately, we have been eating in what I call, “don’t judge a book by its cover” restaurants. (Remember, Tamerlane’s?) Kainan sa Tabing Lawa is an addition to that growing list. Outside, it just looks like a big rustic cottage built of nipa and bamboo. Inside is an eatery with ordinary looking chairs and tables. No airconditioning, too.
Being in close proximity to Antipolo, our family would often drive up the steep road that leads us to this pilgrimage city. One of the many things that we love about it, aside from its resorts, is the variety of places that would interest foodies like us. Our latest discovery is Tamerlane's Ihaws, a small carinderia that serves affordable grilled food.

, the latest of which is this one at World Corporate Center, Shaw Boulevard (near EDSA)
. New ones are opening soon at One Archer’s Place in Taft Avenue, Manila, at SM City Fairview, and at Valero, Makati. Continue reading
We heard mass at St. Pio Chapel in Libis, Quezon City last Sunday. We made plans to catch a movie in Cubao that afternoon where he intended to have late lunch. However, instead of going straight to Cubao from C-5, we made a left turn to Katipunan Avenue and ate at Mushroomburger Katipunan instead!
