TSIM SHA TSUI: TAGUIG'S BEST KEPT SECRET





     Ever since I was a child, I've been a fan of Cebu's famous chain of Dimsum restaurants, namely Ding How, Ding Qua Qua, Harbor City and Dimsum Break.  

Whenever I fly to Cebu, one of my first stop is always one of those restaurants for a couple of orders of Sweet and Sour Pork and of course, their STEAMED FRIED RICE. 

I was elated to discover that there is a place in Manila, specifically the Taguig area, that serves those dishes that I know and love.. A little hole in the wall restaurant in Taguig called Tsim Sha Tsui!

NEW VLOG SERIES: THE RAMEN RULES AT RAMEN NAGI ONE BONIFACIO HIGH STREET


           When it comes to Ramen here in the Philippines, it's hard to argue with Ramen Nagi's status as being on the top of the heap. When it came to opening yet another branch, the brains behind Ramen Nagi decided to take things to the next level by designing a whole new concept store that would break from the tradition, and give it's interiors a sleeker, more upscale look, while staying true to the excellence in service and food quality that they are known for. 

      So last week, I was fortunate enough to witness the blessing of their newest store, conveniently located at One Bonifacio High Street, the heart of BGC!   

     And what makes the branch even more awesome? They'll be the only branch that will be serving the legendary Truffle King Ramen from its opening, all the way until December!

VLOG: MARKET CAFE BUFFET AT AG NEW WORLD MANILA BAY



         The last time I went to AG New World Manila Bay Hotel, was for a visit to Li Li, their famed Chinese restaurant that has an epic selection of dimsum. I've been to their flagship cafe called Market Cafe, many years ago, and quite enjoyed my time there, however I believe the hotel was still under the Hyatt Group of Hotels Banner.

        Upon my return, I discovered that the the standard of excellence was not only maintained, but the bar seemed to have been set even higher!
