Yabu PH

Have you experience the Yabu difference? One of the most talked about restaurant recently was Yabu PH for the lovers of Japanese food especially Katsu to be specific. As using only the best ingredients, you will discover what makes their Katsu better than the rest. Yabu PH in SM Megamall branch was the one I did try and it was quite a best dining experience for me. 

Katsudon takes its name from the words "katsu" (cutlet) and "donburi" (rice bowl dish). Yabu's original Katsudon is delicious cutlets dipped in egg and dredged in fresh panko, served over a bowl of steamed Japanese rice and all covered in a mouth-watering sauce and eggs.

Republ1c Wakepark Restaurant

Extreme sports like wake boarding is such an amusing scene especially if your an avid fan of water sports even if you're really not that sporty kind of person. What if you have the benefit of this view right from your table while enjoying a whole meaty pizza & a bottle of San Mig beer.

Republ1c Wakepark Restaurant located in Nuvali Sta. Rosa Laguna is one of the top spot for extreme wakeboarding sports in the Philippines. It's been quite some time since I first experience the excitement here so there's no doubt of coming back here again for some sporty weekend with friends. 

Repul1c Wakepark Restaurant offers decent & luscious meals after a sweaty wet and wild afternoon of pure sports activity. Previously I attempted the beginners track and after smashing myself into the water for several times, I decided to give up. This time around, I got myself fully confident to try the advance level and guess what, it was a success for a newbie like me. Afterwards, I felt all the hunger in the world so we decided to take dinner. We had Laing Pizza (Php 330.00) served with a cold bottle of San Mig beer. We tried Seafood Pasta (Php 195.00) flavoured with sauteed shrimp & asparagus in olive oil. Asian Chicken Cashew (Php 150.00) was also a bowl perfectly done if youre craving for rice. 

Oh well, sometimes we just really have to enjoy life through good food. So if you'll be passing by Laguna area or maybe on your way to Tagaytay, make sure to drop by at Nuvali and have a bite only at Republ1c WakePark Restaurant.

Insider Sports Bar Makati

Breakfast is the most essential part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So if it happened that you'll be in Makati area, you have to try Inside Sports Bar Makati located at Tune Hotel Makati just opposite the hotel entrance. This resto bar has two ambiences, cozy place for breakfast in the morning & lively drink spot at night for sports lovers out there. During my recent vacation in Manila, I stayed for a night in Tune Hotel & had my breakfast here before heading to Nuvali Wake Park. 

Insider Sports Bar- Makati offers all day Pinoy breakfast menu where you can order all-time favorite Tapsilog & Cornsilog matched with a strong black coffee for a good kickstart of the day. What else could be better than spending your morning for a full meal done deliciously shared with a good old friend sharing stories like it would never end. We've tried Tapsilog (Php 210.00) & Cornsilog (Php 225.00) with brewed coffee & hot tea. Their beef tapa is well cooked & flavoured with that beefy taste just right & well balanced. 

There's nothing too fancy in this place but you'll definitely love how the place for a quick morning meal after a saturday night of party in Makati. They also have wide varities of liquors available & memorabilias for foreign visitors while enjoying a FIFA World Cup series or if you're lucky enough, then you might catch Pacquaio fight in here.

Cupcakes by Sonja

Cupcakes are always a delight to see. The say "It if looks good then it must taste good too". 
Let's see how good this can be at Cupcakes by Sonja located at SM Megamall in Philippines.
The place is asethetically beautiful and such a cozy & fun place for barkadas. Going to places like this, it kinda makes you think of wanting to be a child again. Because really once you're here, you're basically like a kid in a candy store. It truly has a feel of what a sweet shop should be, with it's candy inspire design. 

I ordered 3 different cupcakes in different flavours once of which is the Red Velvet Vixen, a traditional Southern Red Velvet cupcake made with Belgian Cocoa and topped with luscious cream cheese frosting. The 2nd one you gotta try will be the Elvis, an Oreo cookie crust filled with rich peanut butter cream and Reese's chocolate bits, slathered with chocolate & caramel topped with caramelised banana slices and whipped cream. Lastly will be the Dessert Comes First, Speculoos peanut butter marble cupcake with a creamy surprise centre, topped with rich speculoos frosting and spiced biscuit bits.

Their menu offers classic, special & premium cupcakes. They also have brownies, cookies, cake cups & bars that you will surely enjoy. I think all the cupcake flavours they have is to die for. Enough said.
