KASBAH’s Moroccan Cuisine from Boracay to BGC!

I can still remember sitting along the beach, watching the sun set as I enjoyed my Lamb Tagine in KASBAH. The vibe, the food, the setting were all perfect.

Shawarma Center – Malate’s Mediterranean Favorite

I love Mediterranean food specially the authentic ones which gives you a different and unique taste aside from the filipinized mid-east food you find in the malls.
…The Menu Soup and Appetizers Seafood and Meat from the grill, Cooked Dishes Pressure Cooker Dishes, Rice and Drinks Shee Sha Flavors Tea, Coffee and Sweets All of their dishes are served with this thick kind of arabic bread. … This is a one way street so just follow Mabini street and after the Hyatt stop light intersection, you have to turn left along Salas street.

Cyma in Manila!! Opa!!

This is indeed a “flourishing” resto as its name suggest in greek, and anybody can attest that the food is great 🙂 Although the food are a bit on the expensive side and not to mention that they increased the prices by 10% in their mall outlet. … (Note: only on weekdays 🙂 But Edsa Shang gave me enough good reason to brave the Edsa traffic and park on the 6th floor cinema level with its steep long winding road just to enjoy the dishes of Cyma.
…You know what, this is really a perfect place for a Father’s day celebration on June 18, and after a Cyma meal we’ll give our father’s day gift of a ringside ticket to the Pacquiao – Larios Fight on July 2.

[ Playa Calatagan #5] a Manos Greek Tavern Dinner

The first time, I saw Manos Greek Taverna with its inviting blue and white structure, I hesitated to try it out because of the fear of being disappointed with a Filipino-style Greek cuisine similar to Mati in Rockwell.
…Although, it looks like a canteen atmosphere inside, I would give credit to Manos for putting in the effort to give his guests a greek ambiance by posting pictures of Crete and other greek designs. … It tasted like beef omelet with vegetables and potato but the ingredients blended very well to give you a unique taste that you’ll surely go back for more.
