I’ve seen Ramen Sanpachi (or Ramen 38) around malls, but have never felt the urge to try it out, until our “local” guide Imman took us to the original branch Jakarta in the Blok M area. This place is a hole in the wall type in the gritty area of Blok M. What’s special about it, is that this one serves pork (unlike it’s mall-located halal counterparts). TD and I are the pork tourists of Jakarta and we are happy to discover new places with fellow pork lovers. iPhone photos after the jump!Read More
Food is cheap, healthy, clean and super yummy in HCMC. It was one of the goals of our trip – to eat as much authentic Vietnamese cuisine! I’ve already featured all the phở bò we ate and our top 2 favorite restos, L’Usine and Ngon, so here is the rest of our trip from the point of view of our tummies.
A friend of ours read about the Magnum Cafe online in an international paper and told us about it. So we made sure to to come over for dessert! Good thing too because according to Fab Tad it is a pop-up resto and will not be a permanent fixture in the Jakarta dining scene.Read More
After a morning at the gardening shop and the ceramic outlet store the girls and I deserved a treat! So we had lunch at KOI Kemang which is a favorite spot in Kemang. They are known for their Brunch menu (I personally prefer Social House for brunch) but we decided to try their regular lunch menu. All 3 of the girls ordered the Angus Roast Beef with Truffled Pudding which was excellent. I must bring TD (The Diplomat) here so he can try it! That Truffled pudding is amazing!Read More
We enjoyed our dinner at Sekitei so much that TD (The Diplomat) wanted to come back the very next day to try out their Set Lunch Menu. Imagine that! (It was that yummy!). We’re baaaaack!Read More
Off the top of my head, these are our personal favorites in the short time that we’ve been living in Jakarta. Not that we are experts or any thing, there is so much yet we haven’t tried. And I would love any recommendations from you guys! Drop me a line =)Read More
To other bloggers out there…. do you have such a special experience that you end up putting off doing a post about it because you want it to be nice enough to give the experience justice? Well that’s what happened with this post!
TD took me to Sekitei for my birthday and I had such a wonderful time that I took so many pictures and wanted the post to be soooo perfect. I put so much pressure on myself that I ended up putting it off so long that I forgot about posting it at all. LOL. (My birthday was last September…eeep!)Read More
I always promise myself I am going to make a post on this list every time we have a friends who visits Bali. I usually end up sending them a messy email list instead. So here I am finally getting on with it. This is for my friends Ela & her hubby, who are going Bali very soon! And of course for all of my readers and friends who are planning a Bali trip!

Coming from a province near the sea and enjoying freshly caught seafood my entire life, I am what you call a seafood snob. I’d rather eat something else if the seafood isn’t fresh. I barely ate seafood when I was in Manila, because despite being in an archipelago it was hard to find fresh and inexpensive seafood.Read More
Day 2: We woke up to another amazing, sunny day (despite the forecast of clouds and rainshowers..Yay!) and headed off to breakfast at Sala Restaurant. We weren’t expecting much because it was not buffet, but were we in for a surprise! Breakfast, Sala-style, was a yummy feast! Check out the drool-worthy food pics after the jump!Read More
