Review: Best lugaw in town, Lugawan sa Tejeros

Image
Lugaw or rice porridge is one of TheEatventurers’ favorite comfort food. It doesn’t cost much, yet it is very filling. Some are exquisitely delicious which makes it a bang for your buck.
No wonder, it was used in the idiom"tubong lugaw" which means with small capital, there is a large return.
Lugaw is Chinese in origin. It is very easy to digest, which makes it a perfect dish for people under the weather. It has different variations, from goto to arrozcaldo, to whatever toppings you desire. It is the cousin of your favorite risotto.
In a small place in Makati, The Eatventurers discovered a restaurant packed with people of all social status. You guessed it! We are talking about Lugawan sa Tejeros also known as "LST."


Review: There is something ‘Between the Buns’

Image
Malabon is known for its pancit and sweet delicacies such as pichi pichi and kakanin but it is also becoming a food trippers’ haven with several food establishments mushrooming in the area.
Among Malabon’s famous restaurants is the floating restaurant, Balsa sa Niugan. It now houses a cafe called Kapihan sa Balsa where Between the Buns, a joint that offers comfort food, is also being housed.
The Eatventurers tried out Between the Buns last month and here’s our review.

Review: Exploring Space Food Park

Image
Several food parks have opened in the metro but we rarely see ones in Pasay City as most are established in Quezon City.
A space-themed food park just opened in Pasay City four months ago and unlike other food parks, it caters unique food choices. 
Space Food Park, managed by food park specialist Mark Isais, is divided into three floors, Earth - ground floor, The Sky - second floor, and The Galaxy Space Room - inner part of second floor.

Korean eats: Finely shaved Snowboom Dessert Cafe’s Bingsu

Ever since there was a Korean craze in Manila, people got to recognize the Korean culture including its food and famed desserts. 
Among the most popular desserts which reached the Philippine soil aside from Korean ice creams are Bingsu, sometimes spelled here as “bingsoo.”
Bingsu is a Korean shaved ice dessert with various toppings like chocolates, fruits, and beans, served in a bowl. Milk and other flavorings serve as its syrup. It is similar to our very own Halo-halo.
In the neighborhood of Taft Avenue, The Eatventurers discovered a hangout place which mainly offers Bingsu. It is called “Snowboom Dessert Cafe.”

Review: 1010 Bistro gives you Paris-feels at an affordable price

Image
Looking for a new date place or just want to hang out with friends? Check out 1010 Bistro.
We found this Paris-inspired place a week ago — only a few steps away from Hotel Benilde.
1010 Bistro might appear to be slightly intimidating and shady. This is because it does not have any signage except for a noticeable cardboard menu of smoothies and frappes. However, when you enter their place and see their menu, you'll be surprised to know what they offer.
