“Celebrating 80 Years of Simple Life” is a post about my grandmother’s 80th birthday. There I wrote that we brought her to Barrio Fiesta, a restaurant that delivers authentic Filipino cuisine where we had a great lunch. Indeed, nothing beats Filipino food. That is why for my grandmother’s 81st birthday, I decided to take her to a restaurant that serves provincial favorites making you reminisce the flavors of home and all those good old days of food, fun and family.
Early this year, my ninong took me to a new place along Visayas Avenue. At first I thought he was taking me to the nail spa or to East West bank. Then I heard the guard say, “Dito sir yung daan sa Chef Paul’s!” Then I looked up and saw a number of huge discs on the window.
George Burns said, “By the time you’re eighty years old you’ve learned everything. You only have to remember it.” From my grandmother’s funny life stories and time-tested advice, I’m 100% sure she has learned everything in life.

My wish for her is good health and a happy heart! It’s not the big things but the little things that can mean enough

At present, Pancake House continues to serve their well-known pancakes and waffles along with an array of exciting dishes. Despite the additional food in the menu, some things never change.
Do you live near Congressional Avenue and Visayas Avenue in Quezon City or pass by it? If yes, I’m sure you have noticed an increase in the number of café and restaurants. If no, well allow me share with you one of my favorite restaurants which is Crab n’ Crew Restobar. On my other blog (It’s Watchamacallit), I listed down various restaurants under my Dine Out project. However, I failed to blog about my first visit there. But this time, I won’t! First Visit It was a hot June afternoon. My grandmother, uncle and I did a little shopping that day. It was already close to dinner time when we passed by Visayas Avenue and we were hungry. So we decided to eat an early dinner at Crab n’ Crew Restobar. The place has this positive vibes because of the colors and minimalist design. I like a restaurant that gives you enough space to move around. It helps me enjoy my food and company. The food, well they have various choices ranging from pasta to …
