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.

St. Augustine Edition: The Hyppo

Location: 48 Charlotte Street St Augustine, FL 32084

After a long, hot day of exploring historic St Augustine, a sweet treat was a must! As we wandered through the small streets and alleys of St Augustine, we stumbled upon an oasis of frozen treats, The Hyppo!

We walked in and were greeted by friendly faces eager to have us try the popsicles! There were so many options. As I made my way down the frozen case of goodness, I was having trouble deciding on just one. After much deliberation, I settled on a cinnamon pear pie popsicle (or some flavor similar) and to add more decadence to the treat, I dipped it in chocolate.

St Augustine Edition: Maple Street Biscuit Company

Location: Multiple (but I went to: 39 Cordova Street St Augustine, FL 32084)

On an impromptu cousin day trip to St Augustine, we found ourselves starving and ready for food after making the rainy drive from Orlando. On the advice of a friend, we decided to head to Maple Street Biscuit Company for some satisfying comfort food.

Upon arrival, the menu alone was enough to send a tingle of excitement down my spine. Maple Street is one of those places where every single thing on the menu is a serious contender for delicious eats.  Continue reading “St Augustine Edition: Maple Street Biscuit Company”

Houston Edition: Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-BQ

Location: Multiple locations

How could I possibly go to Texas and not indulge in BBQ at least once!? After heading back to Houston before the flight home, BBQ was on the agenda. Lucky for me Rudy’s is a local chain of BBQ restaurants that my friend decided to bring us to.

I should put out there now, if I haven’t already, that I’m not the biggest fan of BBQ. I’m not sure why exactly, it’s just usually not a food I go out of my way to eat or try. Everyone has preferences right? Continue reading “Houston Edition: Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-BQ”

Houston Edition: Shipley’s Do-Nuts

This is not the first time, nor will it be the last time, that I blog about donuts. I mean, who doesn’t love donuts?! They’re perfect pillows of doughy, sweet goodness! Texas definitely didn’t fail to provide me with delicious donut options when I visited.

After deciding to take a last-minute trip to Texas to visit friends and go on food adventures, we picked up some Shipley’s before we headed out on a road trip to Austin. Not only does Shipley’s do donuts, they also have these delicious creations called kolaches (found all over Texas!) which are soft, fresh buns filled with smoked sausage and cheese.  Continue reading “Houston Edition: Shipley’s Do-Nuts”

New Orleans Edition: Central Grocery

Location: 923 Decatur Street New Orleans, LA 70116

I’m not one for tourist traps or eating at the most famous places when travelling. I used to do that and found it overrated and that as a place gets more famous, the food becomes subpar. That’s what made going to Central Grocery a risk for me. EVERYONE told me I had to go while I was in New Orleans and it was only coincidence (as in I was hungry and close to the place and nothing else was open) that brought Central Grocery and I together. Continue reading “New Orleans Edition: Central Grocery”

Philadelphia Edition: La Colombe

Location: 130 South 19th Street Philadelphia, PA 19103

La Colombe. La Colombe. La Colombe.

If you’re looking for some of the best coffee you may drink in your entire life, this is the place. I know it’s a bold statement, but it’s a true one. I have loved this place for years and that feeling hasn’t diminished over time. This is the coffee standard I hold all other coffee places to.  Continue reading “Philadelphia Edition: La Colombe”

Philadelphia Edition: White Dog Cafe

Location: 3420 Sansom Street Philadelphia, PA 19104

It was a sunny  morning and a lot of people were out and about brunching and relaxing. My friends and I were looking for somewhere local to eat (as per usual) and we came across White Dog Cafe. I’d heard of this place from some friends before, so brunch was the perfect opportunity to check it out.

The menu had quite a few items on it that sounded appealing to me, but I settled on the Lancaster City 3-Egg Omelette. I was also quite happy that they served La Colombe coffee (a personal favorite of mine, but we’ll get to that in another post)! Continue reading “Philadelphia Edition: White Dog Cafe”
