My South Korea Experience

From March 21-24, I was enjoying the cold weather of South Korea. Instead of writing paragraph after paragraph explaining what I saw, what I ate, and the full experience, here's a Google+ Story about my trip.


Japanese Food Trip: Kichitora of Tokyo

Our Awesome Planet released a blog about the 10 Most Awesome Ramens in 2013. So my ramen monster friend +Jerome+Mitch, +Jomar and I tried to clear the list around Makati.
From the list, we have only tried Ukokkei Ramen Ron and Hokkaido Ramen Santouka. Because of that, we decided to add a 3rd one: Kichitora of Tokyo. Honestly, by far this is the best ramen I've tried EVER! Now, whenever I will try ramen I will order Spicy Miso Ramen to compare it off with this one. Their gyoza is so-so and the oyakudon Jomar ordered was soupy (if there's such a word).

The Ramen was spicy but it's just the right amount of spice that would allow you to taste the miso based soup. Overall, Kichitora of Tokyo is my fave ramen place so far.


Kichitora of Tokyo is located at 2nd Floor of Glorietta 5 in the Ayala Center.

Food Trip in Malugay Street: Ara Korean Restaurant and Rocci Coffee + Chocolate

Last February 6, +Jomar+Mitch, and I were granted Korean Visa. To celebrate, we set forth to Malugay Street and had a good Korean dinner at Ara Korean Restaurant along Malugay Street in Makati City. It was not the best Korea place I've tried in the Metro. I still prefer the authenticity of Happy Han Bapsang in Ortigas, the ambiance of Maru in Jupiter Street, and the delicious food from Samgyupsalamat near De La Salle University - Manila.

Food Trip: Press Cafe

Press Cafe is a restaurant inside the posh Power Plant Mall. It is located near Fully Booked and the Cinemas.

Around three weeks ago, +Chelle+Mitch+Wayne+Jomar, and I decided to watch the Filipino movie Starting Over Again starring Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga at the Power Plant Mall.

Before the movie, we had dinner at Press Cafe. It was actually a bit expensive but I was hungry and would definitely want to eat before the movie. I had the Cheesy Eggplant which was really cheesy and yummy. Though, half-way through it I wanna stop eating since the appetite is gone. Wayne had burgers, Mama Chelle had pasta, Mitch had steak with potatoes, while Jomar had chicken with rice.

The food is really good but the price is a bit on the mid-range. You would need at a minimum Php 200.00 for a decent meal.

Food Trip: Mooon Cafe

I've been to Mooon Cafe twice and both times it was in the City of Ozamiz. Both times as well, I loved the food I had.

The first time +Jomar and I were there we had Spaghetti ala Gambas and Quesidilla Vera Cruz. Both were good.

Japanese Food Trip: Yabu (House of Katsu)

I have to come love Japanese food, from a steaming bowl of ramen to the raw sashimi and sushi but of all the Japanese food I have tried my ultimate fave is the Japanese Curry.

I have tried a lot of Japanese restaurants around the Metro Manila and would always order the Japanese Katsu Curry. Last Sunday, I had my "love myself more day." I went shopping around Glorietta for corporate attire since I am about to start my new work. When consulting my trusted app, +Foursquare it suggested that I have lunch in Yabu in Glorietta 5. I have not tried it but it was recommended by friends. Thus, I had my Sunday lunch there alone.

At first, people were looking at me like I am a weirdo eating alone. The table on my left is a family while on my right is a couple and here I am in the middle being in my usual Sunday alone-ness. Upon checking the menu, I decided to have the Chicken Katsu Curry Set.

After giving my order, the waitress explained the Yabu tradition and discussed that all sides a…

Ozamiz City: Food, Friends, and Events

I am back in Ozamiz City! I am so happy to be back in Ozamiz. It's one of those places that you visit not because of some famous tourist spot but because of the amazing people you get to meet.

+Jomar and I went to Ozamiz in replacement of +Jerome who won't be able to join the event because of work. Jomar is going to share about the different +Google Developers tools and technologies and conduct an Android code lab while I am going to share about Google's programs for students.
