Dreaming of #BisayaNaFood

Cebu, Philippines is a place of rich history, beautiful beaches, and wonderful people. One of the capital cities of the Philippines, it is highly significant and one of the most populated in the country.

But, let’s be honest: when I think of anything, I think of food. And Cebu? Cebu is known for its delicious, scrumptious food. Mouthwatering seafood. Sweet, sweet, mangoes. Succulent lechon. Ooh-lala!

This week, my tummy has a date with Cebu. Continue reading

The Triple Dark Chocolate Brownies from Annipie are perfect

Everybody loves a brownie. I have literally never met someone who didn’t love a brownie unless they were allergic. The way we like our brownies differ, though.

Davao Food Appreciation Tour blog post #2. Let’s get eating!

If there’s one thing you must know about me in relation to travelling, it is that I travel for the food. I also go for photography jaunts and sight-seeing, yes, and I like learning about the history of the places I go to, but I travel primarily for the good food. The different food, not just ones I can cook myself. The local food, the ones that the locals love to go to, and not just the ones that get featured in expensive magazines.

That’s what attracted me to the Davao Food Appreciation Tour, actually. I was going to get inside information from Davaeños! If you want to know where are the best places to eat in Davao, then read on. Continue reading
