1st Colonial Grill, Naga City Centro

In the summer of 2014, my business had me and Alex driving to Legazpi City in Albay. Being the adventurous foodies that we are, of course, we also grabbed the chance to try out what’s offered by the province’s local restos. One of the restaurants in Legazpi City that we tried was 1st Colonial Grill in Pacific Mall.

While the husband ordered something that’s not so Bicolano, I got Pasta Bicolana (which was more like Aglio Olio with siling labuyo) and the restaurant’s specialty, Colonial Burger. For dessert, we each got a serving of its Sili Ice Cream and Pili Ice Cream. The frozen delights were enough to convince us to come back with Ralph in tow.

Authentic Singaporean food at My Singapore Food Street

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.

My Singapore Food Street

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.

Kainan sa Tabing Lawa

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.
