Oh no, Octi!

So it's been a few days into our trip in Korea and I have yet to sample one of the food items I was most interested in - fresh, real live octopus! It was like the ultimate thing I wanted to try at the time. I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to food, and I would definitely want to try everything at least once.


South Korean street food and more!

In April of this year, some of my friends and I decided to take a break from work and our busy lives and schedules and visit South Korea! It was the first time I've been there, and I was super excited to go there and try all their food! I'm not really a fan of K-pop and K-dramas and other famous South Korean people so I wasn't really in this for all that. Just food mainly. Oh, and I have a very limited knowledge on South Korea and their culture, so this was going to be a nice learning experience for me as well. But srsly...mainly food.

So this post is basically going to be detailing only some of the South Korean food I have had the privilege of sampling. We weren't able to take pictures of a lot of the other food we ate mainly because we were already too busy digging into them. But hey, it's the memories that count! So to start this post off, here's the first thing we ate when we got there:

Since I was craving for some meat tonight, we decided to check out Salt, a reported hole-in-the-wall steakhouse in Makati that serves affordable above-average meals. Sulit!

Bistro Paleta

I remember the first time I set foot in this place. My boyfriend decided to surprise me with a nice dinner. But I had just gotten home from another day of clinical internship and all I wanted to do was curl up and sleep. Maybe wake up later and do papers while binge-eat peanut butter sandwiches and Mountain Dew.

Buuut that was not to be and later I heard a knock on my door. I tried to ignore it but it wouldn't go away. Grumpily, I opened the door and there he was! I threw a little mini-fit because I was all groggy and grumpy as I changed out of my clinic uniform and hopped out the door towards his limo....I mean bike. Yeah, we actually rode a bike to the place. Haha. Student life lel. But I'm glad we did! Because I never would have discovered this little gem of a restaurant super near my house, along Taft Avenue!

LoLa Cafe + Bar

LoLa Cafe and Bar is one of those little hidden restaurants in Tomas Morato. You won't be able to find it unless you veer off the path for a bit, or look a little more. That's what makes it kind of special.

It's located along Scout Lozano, a nice little place that if not for the bright signs out front, you could easily mistake for just another modern house along the road.

RUB Ribs and BBQ

I have a weird work schedule that has me traveling a lot throughout the week to different clinics. On Tuesdays, I get to go to work at Tomas Morato, and that naturally means I get to eat in the area after work. Score! The place is just crawling with food establishments everywhere, that in almost a year of working in the area, I have yet to try a good chunk of them (maybe it's because I usually resign myself to the McDonalds near our clinic for the sake of familiarity and cheapness...and also the fries).

Anyway, this particular Tuesday, my boyfriend (who is usually the one I drag out on these food adventures because I dubbed it the ultimate "boyfriend duty") and I hauled our hungry butts over to RUB Ribs and BBQ, which is seen to your right almost immediately as you make a turn from Tomas Morato into Scout Rallos street.

The menu!

Angel's Pizza Pasta Combo

I believe it to be fitting that the very first post on this blog be dedicated to the regular default answer to "What's your favorite food?" -- PIZZA!

And what pizza chain to start this all off with, but with my favorite companion on many late nights when I have decided to not care for my growing love handles for just that moment in time. Actually, to be honest, I have yet to visit an actual physical Angel's Pizza store. I usually just dial them up, order away and count the seconds until my beloved comes a-knocking. However, this semi-long distance relationship is definitely for keeps!
"I love you, my chubby cherubic chef." I whispered in between mouthfuls of pizza.
