    Nowhere Girl Vlogs | Zomato June FMU

    Last June, I was blessed to be invited to three Zomato foodie meet up. First, was at Coffee Book Cafe in Congressional, and just a few minutes away, at Pitstop Food Park. I was also invited at the best steakhouse in Ortigas: 22 Prime in Discovery Suites. You might already have read about them here in my blog, I just wanted to make a video about them. Bear with me please, I’m new at this vlog thing and I enjoy making videos. Yes, I need a better hobby but for now here’s the FMU montage (or something):

    22 Prime, Discovery Suites

    22 Prime is the perfect place to take one’s significant other on a special date night or anniversary. It is also the right place to seal business deals or enjoy a brunch with one’s family on a Sunday morning. Located on the 22nd floor of Discovery Suites in Ortigas Center, 22 Prime is a high-end steakhouse that offers mouth-watering dishes. Here are some of the dishes I’ve tried on my visit: For starters, we were served lobster bisque which is poached lobster in shellfish oil, with tomato herb crouton, and emmental herb brioche. Next was a generous serving of grilled Selva Jumbo Prawns with parsley marble potato and sautéed haricot…

    Ban Be Ca Phe, Antipolo

    Ban Be Ca Phe is a Vietnamese-Filipino restaurant located at Upper Antipolo. This charming space is just a few meters shy from Robinson’s Antipolo and offers very affordable Vietnamese dishes. The cafe, technically, has three parts: a veranda, and inside a dining area at the right side and a traditional Vietnamese sitting area on the left side, which, in my opinion, gives so much Kumbaya vibes. LOL Kidding aside, I find the interior both creative and unique. I went here last May 27th with my mom to have lunch. I haven’t had breakfast yet when we got there, meaning, I haven’t had my morning fix. So the first thing I ordered is…

    Coffee Book, Congressional Avenue

      Coffee Book is located along Congressional Avenue in Quezon City. I went there yesterday with some friends I met at Artsy Cafe. I met some new friends too and had a blast. The cafe’s interiors were more of a restaurant type than the cozy and comfy cafe type that I was expecting. But true to its name, they have two tall built-in shelves filled with books of various genres perfect for bookworms.    Now to the best part: FOOD. Coffee Book serves cakes, cookies, and muffins. They also serve snacks, pasta, and rice meals. As for beverages, they have (of course) coffee served hot or cold / over ice, milkshakes,…

    Artsy Cafe, Maginhawa

    Artsy Café is a lovely nook situated in the heart of the Maginhawa food district. Lavishly decorated in vintage pieces, it gives off a very retro-vibe to anyone who comes in and while themed cafés are common, especially in the stretch of Maginhawa, what sets Artsy Café apart from others is their menu and affordability. These are the dishes that we were able to sample when we visited: We were first served with Kani Salad, which costs only 195php. It may sound a common starter but it is actually pretty innovative. On top of the bed of fresh greens, mangoes, and nori is the deep-fried, shredded crabsticks drizzled with a…
