Smores, a Recipe
This a recipe for the simplest thing you can make, smores. At first I thought this was such a stupid idea, but then I know a lot of people who still Google smores recipes (you know who you are). So here goes. What you need: - Oven - Baking tray - Cinnamon graham crackers (this will make a HUGE difference!!) - Marshmallows - Thin chocolate bars (I prefer milk chocolate) Prepare the oven by...
Hungry Ninja, Iloilo
I delayed my coming to Hungry Ninja ever since it opened last year because someone told me that the food wasn’t good. That someone is wrong. Hungry Ninja is an Asian cuisine fast food restaurant that opened a few months ago. They serve a variety of dishes that inspired from neighbouring Asian countries and oh my god can we just go to the food now?! These were the Banh-mi sandwiches...
Cham Cham, a South Asian Delicacy
This weekend I discovered Cham Cham, a South Asian dessert that is sooo simple yet sooo good! I went with my friend Heera and her mom to Jersey City, which apparently is like the Queens of New Jersey, meaning that there are a lot of international food in that area. They took me to this row of Indian restaurants and had me try various Indian food. The one that struck me the most was this dessert. ...
Belly Good Cafe & Crepes, San Francisco
You know how sometimes a simple piece of food can make you feel so happy? Well this is one of them. If the name already makes you giddy, wait until you see the food! After a very filling lunch, my friend and I decided to eat some more, just to see if our stomachs would explode. We were in Japan Town in San Francisco, so we decided to just walk around the area to see if there is a dessert place...
The Rotunda, San Francisco
One afternoon, my friend Nina and I decided to spend our money and have a fancy late lunch, so we went to The Rotunda at the Neiman Marcus building in Union Square, San Francisco. The restaurant was really pretty! It’s basically an indoor balcony, so the tables were surrounding the hole which overlooks the Neiman Marcus lobby. If you’re facing the other way, then you would look at the...
El Loco, Surry Hills, Sydney
Hi Guys, SO. Last week I went to Sydney’s infamous Mexican cantina, El Loco. This is probably the first time I’ve ever had REAL tacos (none of that Taco Bell shiz) and it tastes amazing (also at $5 per taco!). Order the Secret Taco (I think that’s what it’s called), it’s taco with deep fried lamb brains and corn. Look at it: Also, if it happens to be available,...
Mad for Chicken, NYC
If you like Bon Chon or Kyo Chon (for those who don’t know, they are Korean chicken wings places) and like to drink and listen to good music, then Mad for Chicken is the place for you! Now you know that I give minimal review and would rather just show the pictures and explain how delicious the food is, but not this time, or at least just for the second part (the picture part). The thing is,...
That title looks strange. Like Siam is in a city in the country of Iloilo. Weird. Aaanyhoo, my sister, cousin and I had planned to go to Namie, which is this Japanese restaurant in the same building as Matthew’s Burger Cafe, but we got there too late and they were closed. And so, we went to Siam. Soa little background story. There used to be this Thai restaurant called Krua Thai but it...
Botanica, Hunter Valley, NSW
While my mother was here we went to a day trip to a suburb in NSW that specializes in vineyards, so we went and checked out Botanica Restaurant. clockwise from left: Mushroom Soup with Pancetta (amuse bouche), Orange Creme with Cookie Crumbs and Chocolate Cigar (dessert), Beef Fillet (main), and Duck Liver Pate (entree) The best dish was definitely the beef fillet, it had all these mushrooms...
Matthew's Burger Cafe, Iloilo
Matthew’s Burger Cafe, as their name suggests, specialises in burgers. The twist is that they serve burgers that are supposed to represent certain cuisines from around the world. Their burgers include: Italian Burger American Burger Oriental Burger Mexican Burger Indian Burger and all at only P150! That’s my roommate Poch (who’s been in my articles so many times). We...
Gastroarte Ristorante, NYC
A few weeks ago, I went to one of the COOOOLest restaurants I’ve been to in NYC called Gastroarte (previously named Graffit). It is located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It is basically a Spanish gastronomy restaurant, where they serve you cool and modern food, but Spanish-inspired. I went with my friend who came from Boston and we had such a great time! We got a very friendly...
Recipe - Puff Pasty Pizza
Wow haven’t seen you for a while! As you know, non of Tasteritos’ contributors post anything during school season, hence the absence. However, even though I am in the middle of midterm week (nay, weeks!), my finance midterm actually got postponed to next week, so now I have time to post stuff. YAAY FOR ME! (and you loyal readers, of course!) This time, I am going to post a recipe for...
