When I first visited Singapore in 2004, I wasn’t really able to enjoy going around the city and dine in the famous hawker centers. I was just there for a night, a quick side trip that I made before going back to Manila from a business trip. So there’s still this craving for authentic Singaporean food inside me that’s still waiting to be filled.
Located at the 2nd level Bridgeway of SM Megamall, My Singapore Food Street, is the newest restaurant in town offering its customers a taste of authentic Singaporean food. The restaurant is a partnership of business entrepreneur Jean Henri Lhuillier and Asian TV personality/celebrity chef Vivien Tan.

My Singapore Food Street carries a wide selection of signature meals such as the Hainanese Chicken and Laksa, appetizers such as Spiced Tofu, stir fry dishes like the Char Kway Teow, and uniquely prepared Singaporean beverages and desserts.
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.
When we think of Filipino food, adobo instantly comes to mind. Even with countless of variations, adobo is still the ultimate Pinoy comfort food. “Adobo connects us all,” don’t you agree?
This is what the founders of Adobo Connection
believe. They have designed Adobo Connection to be a place where friends and family connect over adobo and other home-cooked meals.
From it’s first-ever branch in Dela Rosa, Makati, Adobo Connection has grown to be a franchise of nine branches
, 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
