Pasta Bella Cebu: A Romantic Dinner Underneath the Stars

Pasta Bella has always been on our go-to list ever since we moved to a new home. But because we’ve been reserving our visit for something special, it took us almost four months before we finally stepped foot in the roofdeck restaurant. And it was for an article I contributed to Looloo. Coincidentally, it was a few days before Valentine’s Day.

Paku by Chef Binux is the Newest Chicken Wing Place in Cebu

Pakû by Chef Binux — I first read the name as, well, “PAK-U”. I was later corrected by my friends by pointing out the diacritical mark on the u. As it turns out, the name of this new restaurant was pronounced as “Pa-ko”, which translates to wing in Bisaya and Hiligaynon. In this instance, it referred to as chicken wings.

And that’s exactly what Pakû by Chef Binux is all about– unlimited chicken wings. The second of its kind in Cebu and definitely something everyone will enjoy.

I Joined a Wine Tasting Event at D+B Wines Cebu And This is What Happened

I always get intimidated with wine. Unlike food, I can never determine wine based on its nodes, aroma, or even its taste. Whenever I’m asked to describe the characteristics of the wine I drank, I always feel defeated. I can never find the right words to describe what I tasted or smelled.

After all, I always relied on my big brother’s recommendations. With wine, I just know that I liked sweet wine and don’t like dry red wine.

13 Types of French Desserts You’ll Find at Waterfront Cebu City Hotel

French cuisine has always intimidated me. Chef Julia Child got it right when she said “In France, cooking is a serious art form and a national sport.” With the French’s pride and strict practice for classique cooking methods, it’s easy to understand why. From the way they pick their ingredients down to the presentation of the finished dish, the French have a disciplined extremity for nothing less than perfection, particularly with French desserts. When I received an invite from KalamiCebu to join him in attending the launch of Chef Benoit‘s Classic and Traditional French Patisseries at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino, I knew right away what to expect from the event.

Nam Food Shop: Cebu’s Newest Hole in the Wall Food Joint

I always get excited whenever I stumble upon a new food find. It’s like discovering a gem amongst the rubble. You never truly know what to expect from the establishment– how the interior’s going to look like, how the food’s going to taste, or even how accommodating the owners are. In my experience, going to such places inspire me to continue what I’m doing– blogging and writing about these good food trips that deserve their share of the limelight. They also end up inspiring me to be an adventurer– to get out of my comfort zone and taste the world through different cuisines. And most of the time, these establishments end up becoming my favorite spots.
