Bao On The Block – Quezon City

Hello everyone! It has been a long time since the last time we shared an EATSperience in Quezon City. We have been guilty of just going around areas near our place like Makati and Bonifacio Global City. But since our baby’s pediatrician is based in Quezon City and we have to visit her for the monthly checkup, it gives us time to EATSperience restaurants that we rarely go to, and just simply appreciate what that side of Metro Manila has to offer. In this edition of EATSplorations, we will share with you about our latest Quezon City food find, Bao On The Block. It is located in Sgt. Esguerra just across ABS-CBN. This place serves up baos and rice bowls perfect for lunch and after work chow downs. We decided to visit Bao On The Block on a weekday lunch (during our school break) and it was pretty easy to go to. The place is small but it was decorated nicely, for diners who are simply looking for a place to dine at after a long day’s work. Continue reading…

Yellow Box Rice Company – Katipunan, Quezon City

Hello everyone! Work just keeps getting busier and busier by the minute and it keeps getting harder and harder to write some of our recent EATSperiences. Good thing, we had a bit of a spare time coming off a hectic weekend. A couple of weeks back, we were able to EATSperience an eatery outside of our usual go to dining hotspots. This eatery is located along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City which is 13 kilometers away from where we stay to be exact. It was really far but we made it all the way there because we heard that the food there is really good. Our featured eatery for this EATSperience is the Yellow Box Rice Company. It is located just outside La Vista Village in Katipunan Avenue. Yellow Box Rice Company or YBRC for short is a small restaurant where diners can get a variety of bang for buck rice in a box meal. We can still remember how tasty and affordable rice in a box meals were back when we were still in college. That was like how many *secret* years ago! We had a really nostalgic feeling right when we stepped inside YBRC. Remembering the good old days when we survived long days mainly because it had heaps of rice and lots of flavor. Get your tummies ready Continue reading…

The Broken Oven Food Delivery – Quezon City

People would ask us every once in a while if we can cook or not. Most of the time our answer would be a very hesitant yes. Well, yeah we can cook but we are no experts. Good thing for us, there are a lot of delivery options available all over Metro Manila. Whenever we are starving or in need of a potluck contribution, we can choose from those options. Most of the time though, we would just dial in our favorite fast food and order the usual items on the menu. Recently, we veered away from the usual as we received some home cooked trEATS from The Broken Oven Food Delivery. The Broken Oven Food Delivery prides itself of heirloom recipes that will leave you wanting more. When they contacted us about this feature, we agreed to do it right away so that we can help promote what they have and what they do. This feature reminded to us why we started the trEATS column which is to support local chefs by promoting what they do best. Are you ready to find out more about The Broken Oven Food Delivery?

Tra Vinh – Banawe, Quezon City

Since coming back to Manila almost three months ago, one of our main goals has been to EAT and EXPLORE around our hometown and appreciate eateries around Manila and beyond. And we have been on track so far. Slowly but surely, we are getting our tummies busy and are ready to take it one bite at a time. This edition of EATSplorations took us to Banawe in Quezon City. For the longest time, Banawe has been known for its great number of big and small Chinese restaurants. But if you think we tried a Chinese restaurant, you are wrong. We skipped the Chinese cuisine and traded it for Vietnames cuisine. In this edition of EATSplorations, we will share with you our Tra Vinh Authentic Vietnamese Noodles EATSpeience. Wait, what? Vietnamese food in Banawe? Yes, you read that right. If you want to find out more about our first ever Vietnamese EATSperience in Banawe, you got to Continue reading…
