[EATStaycation] Weekend at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila

The Ortigas area in Pasig City is a district that we rarely visit. Aside from the fact the we kind of live far from there, the traffic situation in that area can be really challenging too. Luckily, we had a chance to visit Ortigas and spend our weekend there, that started on aΒ Sunday, which means no traffic. Our weekend staycation made us see that there are a lot to explore in this area. Including the awarded five-star rating by Forbes Travel Guide for 2 consecutive years, Marco Polo Ortigas Manila. Wanna find out why this hotel has been in the list for 2 consecutive years already? Join us as we share about our EATStaycationΒ Weekend at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila! Enjoy! Continue reading…

The Broken Oven at The Gardens, Loyola Grand Villas

Ever since we came back home here in Manila in 2016, one of the things that we looked forward to was meeting new people through our blog. And during the early months of being in Manila, we met a guy who was very new to the food business. Starting of with food deliveries, to having a stall at Industrie, and now having his own place for The Broken Oven. Marco Olives, the home cook behind this amazing food brand has grown a lot in just 2 years time. We felt like we have journeyed with him because the growth of The Broken Oven is almost the same age as that of our little girl. In this edition of EATSplorations, we will be sharing about this food brand that we have come to love, as we were able to see and feel the passion of Marco Olives for his baby—The Broken Oven at The Gardens, Loyola Grand Villas. Lechon belly, Chicken and Waffles and S’mores Milkshake. Hungry yet? Just naming a few of the many dishes to love about The Broken Oven. Keep reading and find out more! Enjoy!

[Holiday Day Inn Makati] Rustic Mornings and Flavors Sunday Brunch

Sausages, bacon, eggs, hash browns, pancakes, and waffles, just to name a few of our breakfast favorites. We are both huge fans of breakfast food and we tend to eat a lot so that our tummies are fueled up until lunchtime. Hence, theΒ  idea of brunch is nothing but genius for us. Being our food-loving selves, we are always in the hunt for something new to try. We have been hearing about this great brunch place in Marikina from our friends ever since we were based abroad. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance to try it out, even when we came back home a few years back, just because it is far from where we reside. Fortunately, this famous brunch place has an on-going collaboration with Flavors Restaurant at Holiday Inn and Suites in Makati City. Will we let this opportunity pass? Of course not! In this edition of EATSplorations, we will be sharing about a glimpse of Rustic Mornings that is closer to us, made possible by Holiday Inn and Suites. Just in time for Mother’s Day celebration, this pop-up will be running this whole month of May. Join us as we EATSperience Rustic Mornings and Flavors Sunday Brunch! Enjoy! Continue reading…

[Neighborhood EATS] Flossom Kitchen Cafe – San Juan City

Good restaurants or cafes are not necessarily the ones that we find in malls or establishments. There are some that are hidden in residential places or probably just around the neighborhood. In one of our recent EATSperience, we discovered a great find in a commercial establishment called Flossom Place and it’s really close to our workplace. Flossom Place is like a one-stop shop for those residing in and around San Juan City. It’s home to a number of establishments that offer different products and services. In this edition of EATSplorations, join us as we share with you about Flossom Kitchen Cafe in San Juan City. Enjoy!
