Me and my friend Fanny had a goal. We were determined to finish our Christmas list. So off we went to Shangri-la Mall one Sunday afternoon ready to face the crowd of Christmas shoppers and to do some damage to our wallets. A few hours later, low on batt and ready to bite somebody's head off if they so much as look at us the wrong way, we headed off to grab a super late lunch.

One of the marks of a truly good restaurant is it's ability to consistently produce the same good food or to make it better. More often than not, when I go back to a restaurant where my first experience was truly exceptional, I leave disappointed.

Last summer , for reasons I cannot remember, me and my friend May ate at Chili's. I was craving for some melon shake since it was a super hot day. While almost done enjoying my fruit shake- which was really good- I noticed something black floating in it. At first I thought it was a pit. I was about to happily comment on how fresh the fruit shake is until I noticed a wing. Aaack! There was a big fat fly in my shake! I immediately rushed to the comfort room and puked my guts out. Though the management was apologetic and didn't make us pay for our food, traumatized as I was, I never went back.

Tucked away in one of Marikina's dark alleys is a secret garden called Isabelo. Inspired by the gardens of rustic Italy, this once ancestral home has become a food lovers haven. A brain child of a former advertising executive now turned cook, Chef Portia Baluyut, finalist of Lifestyle Network's Clash of the Toque-en Ones, and her artist mother.

After months of hearing such wonderful rave reviews about Chicken Charlie, I knew I just had to try it. Unfortunately, since they close at 9pm, I have not been able to get here early enough, until recently, to try it out.
Ever since I have tasted Chef Bruce Lim's offerings some years ago in his kitchen/studio, he has been one of my favorite chefs. He has deconstructed our pinoy food and rebuilt it in such a way that makes us think and savor the different layers of flavor in each dish.
