You spend months preparing for the big beach trip.

Men are from Mars, women are from Venus, and apparently… good-lookin’ food is from Jupiter. Jupiter Street, anyway. From old school dining places to trendy new restaurants, Jupiter St. in Makati has evolved into a favorite destination for lunchbreak binges and after-work foodtrips.  If these photos from looloo users are any indication of the grub […]

Not that I’d consider myself a Mr. Fancy Pants coffee connoisseur, but I’d like to think I’m cultured enough to know that to some, making coffee is an art! The temperature of the milk, where the beans were grown, even the precise timing required when combining each ingredient, supposedly all contribute to brewing the perfect […]

I don’t know about you guys, but Mexican food’s always been a bit of a brain-bender for me. My simple-minded understanding of Mexican food is that if it ends ta, to, or cho/co, it’s probably Mexican.

Nope, macaron is not another way of spelling macaroon. Trust me, I know a couple of people who would throw a fit if they hear anyone say “macaroons” when really, it’s “macarons.” (I’ve learned my lesson.) Macaroons are those chewy mini cupcake-looking things that have dried coconut meat. Macarons, on the other hand, are meringue-based […]

Just from the number of “OMG time to work on my Bora body!” posts I’ve seen lately, it’s pretty clear… summer has arrived. Yes, VJ Greg’s favorite time of the year is in full stride — beach-bound promo flights are fully-booked, vacation leave requests are piling up and people are unboxing their mmmmm… b’kiniz. While we […]
