Where to Eat When in Manila

I have a very serious, long-running commitment with food. During conversations of totally non-food related, food would somehow streams its way through the middle deceiving us with its magical power and we end up craving for something. If you follow me, aside from selfies (kidding!) I post photos of food I discover near or far. Movie dates don't impress me, take me to a pop-up or a hole-in-the-wall restaurant whether they serve beer with ice or not, you might have a chance for a second date ;)

In this entry, I'll compile my foodie adventures with a promise to constantly update it. For the love of food and the things that happen while eating!
