Recommendable Edibles

Philippines Edition: Ohana Art Cafe

Location: San Miguel, San Antonio, Zambales, Philippines

Another day, another adventure. This adventure took us to a tiny fishing village by the coast where we had a day of wonderful serendipity and just quiet, wonderful paradise. My family and I took a drive, with a local recommending this small town to get away from tourists in the Subic Bay area. We ended up in San Antonio/Pundaquit and I’m not going to lie, I was a bit apprehensive. I suppose the cautious person in me doubted how a small fishing town could live up to my beach paradise expectations.

Philippines Edition: Cinco Antonios Bistro

Location: 19 Outlook Drive South Baguio, Benguet, Philippines

Filipino food is flavorful, vibrant, and colorful and at Cinco Antonios Bistro I found just that! My family and I took a day trip to Baguio City, where a lot of people in the Philippines vacation. It’s located high in the mountains and has a very cool climate compared to the rest of the country. The drive can really only be accomplished by taking a winding two-lane road through the mountains. By the time we made it to the city, we were starving!  Continue reading “Philippines Edition: Cinco Antonios Bistro”

Philippines Edition: SM Clarke – Mall Food Court

Location: SM Clarke Food Court

Ok, so hear me out everyone! I know what you’re thinking, what the heck am I doing recommending food court food?! But let me tell you, mall food in the United States pales in comparison to mall food in the Philippines. Like pretty much everything I had experienced on my trip, care and attention was put into my meal and I was able to eat traditional Filipino food in a modern setting.

Philippines Edition: Jollibee

Location: Worldwide with some U.S. locations

Sooooooo, it’s been a long while. A new job has had me crazy busy and to be honest with you, I’ve been in a bit of a rut. But fear not, I’m back!

I will have TONS of things to update on, but last year I got to go back to my homeland (well my mother’s), the Philippines and you better believe I had ALL of the food adventures.

K Restaurant

Location: 1710 Edgewater Drive Orlando, FL 32804

A close friend of mine was having a birthday and lucky for all of us, it coincided with Magical Dining Month (MDM). For those not familiar, MDM is a month long thing where a lot of the higher end restaurants have a prix fix menu that allows you to sample restaurants at a reasonable price. That is how K Restaurant came into my life.

I don’t have too much of an issue paying for good food, but I am also not a millionaire and need to be quite selective about my money. So MDM was the perfect opportunity to try something new and support a local business.

As part of the MDM, I was able to choose from a starter, entree, and dessert. My starter was a charcuterie board with various meats, cheeses, and pickled items. If you know me, you understand that this is all I need to survive in life. I could eat this every single day and never grow tired of it.

I thought that my starter would be the high point of my meal, but I was insanely wrong. my main meal was steak and potatoes. Yes, it sounds plain, but when something is simple, it has to be done right, and this was done absolutely right. The steak was cooked to perfection and was so tender and melt in your mouth. The potatoes and the gravy on the meat were the perfect complement to the steak.

But it wasn’t over. I still had dessert to get through as well. I ordered a peach cobbler, mostly because I am a sucker for fruity desserts. It was glorious and exactly what I needed to end my amazing meal.

Not only was the food amazing, but the wonderful thing about this place is that it is located in an old home converted into a restaurant. So there are separate rooms, a smaller more intimate atmosphere, and pockets of conversation happening all around. It was the perfect complement to the meal.

Cafe 906

Location: 4932 New Broad Street Orlando, FL 32814

Sooooo…it’s been a while. A new job has been keeping me extremely busy, but I’m getting back into the swing of things! Positives include a much shorter commute and plenty of new food options to try. In getting to know my new co-workers, we went out for a lunch and decided to try Cafe 906, a French cafe, on the suggestion of one of my co-workers, who was born and raised in France.

I can honestly say that French is not my strong suit. I indulge in a croissant here and there, I eat french fries (does that even count?!), but aside from that, I’m in the dark. On the recommendation from said co-worker, I decided to try the spinach and mushroom crepe. A crepe is like an eggy, thin pancake that can be savory or sweet. Obviously I went the savory route and also had my crepe loaded with cheesy goodness.

We sat outside to enjoy the nice weather and lake view and not long after our food arrived. I dug into it and it was heavenly. The crepe was thin but soft and delicious. It was stuffed to the brim with all of the delicious ingredients and they all complemented each other so well. It’s not something I would have typically chosen, but I’m so glad that I gave it a try. I foresee a lot of crepes from Cafe 906 in my future.

Additional side note: Their coffee and desserts are also delicious. You can’t choose anything bad there!

Noodles and Rice Cafe

Location: 813 North Mills Avenue Orlando, Florida 32803

On a lazy weekday afternoon I had a hankering for soup that had to be satisfied. Instead of going to an old favorite, I decided to take a risk and check out Noodles and Rice. I walked in and the delightful smell of soup and other delicious foods greeted me. I couldn’t wait to order and dig into the delicious eats.  Continue reading “Noodles and Rice Cafe”
