A Budget-Friendly Dinner at Mozu Cafe

One of our FoodieViews PH friends got married. ❤ Her wedding day was set on a Friday. Since the metro traffic can be very intense, the rest of the FoodieViews PH team decided to book an overnight stay at The Linden Suites. Since we all just got off from work, we decided to get a quick dinner and go back to the hotel. Let me tell you that finding a place to eat at Ortigas Center isn’t that difficult. But if you’re tired and on a budget, searching for a nearby place that’s budget-friendly might be a little difficult. Thanks to the Zomato App (not sponsored) we found a place that’s not only affordable but also at walking distance. Mozu Cafe features a dim ambiance which you wouldn’t appreciate at first glance. But after a long day at work, you will greatly appreciate the cafe’s private and cosy atmosphere. Moreover, the cafe has a small indoor area and an outdoor seating. Since we were there to eat, we opted for the more private indoor seating. …

Almon Marina: Gourmet Sandwich Shop, Salad & Deli

Craving for a simple meal like a warm bowl of soup and sandwich? Almon Marrina serves freshly made everyday soup and salad. They also have a selection of gourmet sandwiches inspired by cities around the world as well as a variety of pasta, Spanish-style slow cooked meals and mouthwatering grilled specialties. Almon Marina started as a cold seafood & deli store. In 1990, it was turned into a gourmet sandwich shop, salad & deli that we now know. The shop has branches in various malls in the metro but this one is located at SM The Block. If you’ve eaten here way back and notice something different that’s probably because this is at their new spot. From the front entrance of The Block, Almon Marina is now near the Hypermarket entrance. I was informed by my friend that this is smaller than the previous space. Honestly, I kind of felt that while dining. So I checked their past photos and compared it to now. The glass windows and door they used to have gave an …

Chubs Chasers Now at SM The Block Food Circuit

There’s a new addition at The Food Circuit of SM North EDSA. Chubs Chasers, a casual Filipino-American diner officially opened its doors on June 27. If you haven’t been there, the restaurant is easy to find. Just look for a cute, brown teddy bear in a chair! Chubs Chasers is a brightly-lit restaurant with white brick walls that displays various life quotes. The place is clean, well-ventilated and has plenty of space for diners to move around. If you ask me where you should sit, I would recommend the second couch near the counter. Why? In my point of view, I see two window pane wall mirrors and a beautiful kitchen counter. That simply erases the vision of the mall on the left making it look like you’re eating at home. *Maybe it’s just me. But feel free to try that area. 😉 Speaking of eating, Chubs Chasers menu consists of steaks, burgers, chicken, pasta and sandwiches. Be sure to read their menu because they have numerous good choices from All Day Breakfast to Chubs …

Whiskies, Light Meals & Skyline Views at Prime Hotel’s Cozy Rooftop Bar

Quezon City is the largest city in Metro Manila. It is home to many historical milestones, the country’s leading universities and academic institutions as well as ecological parks and garden venues. But that is not all! With several shopping malls that features various restaurant concepts and home to the top go-to places for a food trip such as Banawe, Katipunan Avenue, Maginhawa Street and Tomas Morato, the city is also a haven for foodies and night owls. Being a foodie, I am quite curious to see and experience new restaurants in the city I live in. That is why upon receiving an invitation from Zomato to a place I didn’t know existed, I instantly confirmed my attendance. The destination by the way was… The Nautilus Whiskey Bar This is located at the roof deck of one of the newest hotels in the heart of Quezon City. Prime Hotel is the first hospitality business expansion of MEGA Global. Yep, the same company behind the Best Sardines Company in the Philippines – MEGA Sardines. Prime Hotel opened …

Limbaga 77’s CLASSIC Filipino Dishes

With the rise of new food concepts and being surrounded by countless restaurants, people always have something new to explore. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to expand your palate and enjoy new food. But just in case you want to go back to basics to the food you grew up eating, what would that be? Mine would be Filipino cuisine specifically Ilocano and Chavacano dishes BUT I don’t limit myself with these two. In fact, I also love dishes from other regions and I happen to know a place where you can enjoy them. In Tomas Morato Quezon City, there is a street called Scout Limbaga. There you will find a two-storey white house with large window frames. The house was actually built in the ’60s but was converted into a restaurant four years ago and is now known as Limbaga 77 Cafe Restaurant. I’ve passed by the area countless times but this was the first time I set foot on the place. Seeing the facade up close, the cozy al fresco area …
