Aka the places you’ll go, when you’re hungry.
So I feel “favored” by the Universe, and then Google Maps, to be living in a city teeming with food shops — the kinds that make it to certified Filipino food blogs. My house is one cartwheel away from 8065 Bagnet and Suzukin, and nobody has to pay me to review the restaurants in my neighborhood — only I write in an unorthodox way about food.
I’m going to be big-time generous today and link you up to some of my favorites and new finds, and we’ll have to start with the “mochi” category because my friends scour the metro for them while I can try two mochi places at once (like Mandy Moore in that movie) without crying “how do I get there?”
If you live/work/happen to be in/near the Makati CBD, you should not be crying anymore. Hello, foursquare, I might outdo you with my list. Heh heh.
Mochi and froyo plus milk tea (= bathroom break)
