Burger Wars at Army Navy

Back in college days, which was not too long ago, I had been constantly hearing a lot of my classmates rave about Army Navy’s burgers. They said the burgers are great and claim that it’s the best. Hearing it not once, not twice, but several times from different people, I knew I had to find out the truth for myself. Since my Charlie’s burger epiphany, I needed to know if there is any other burger in town that could ever beat (or at least equal to) THE best. As you all know, I am a disciple of Charlie’s burger. Haha. 😛 … Continue reading Burger Wars at Army Navy

Best of the best: Charlie’s Burger

Charlie’s Grind and Grill G/F RONAC Bldg., Ortigas Ave cor. Santolan, Greenhills -and- 16 East Kapitolyo Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig City   Hands-down, this is the bestest burger I have ever tasted in my whole life. No other burger chains can compete with Charlie’s 1/3-pound Black Angus burger. I’m telling you, you don’t know what REAL burger means if you still haven’t been to Charlie’s. I first heard of Charlie’s while I was watching the now defunct TV show on QTV “Tara Let’s Eat”. On that episode, they actually focused on the buffalo wings with punyeta sauce since the topic was … Continue reading Best of the best: Charlie’s Burger

Raging Rapids: White Water Rafting Adventure at CDO

(Last part of my CDO adventure) I woke up the next morning with a pounding heart. I’m finally feeling scared about my first ever white water rafting. I was imagining the huge rocks and the strong current and what could happen to me if I fall off the boat. Praning na talaga. 😀 Anyway, after breakfast we headed to Divisoria for our 7am calltime. Our transpo was waiting there for us. The package we availed of at 1st Rafting Adventure was the Advance 1 Course which included Free Transpo from Divisoria to the rafting venue and back, Safety Gears (helmets, buoyancy … Continue reading Raging Rapids: White Water Rafting Adventure at CDO

Asian Fusion at Thai Me Up

Thai Me Up Capistrano-Mabini Sts., Cagayan de Oro City http://facebook.com/cdo.thaimeup Store Hours: 11am – 10pm (Part 2 of my CDO adventure) We were driving around CDO when we passed by this restaurant called “Thai Me Up” along Capistrano Street. It was hard not to notice because of the play of words, which I think is very witty, and its hot pink logo with a black elephant on it.                                                               Cute … Continue reading Asian Fusion at Thai Me Up

Loving Cagayan de Oro!

We spent summer in my mother’s hometown in Agusan del Norte last May. Since Cagayan de Oro was just a few hours drive, we decided to go there to try out White Water Rafting. This activity was actually long overdue! Last year, we took a sidetrip to Camiguin and were suppose to include CDO in our itinerary. Unfortunately, due to time constraint and other stuff, we crossed out CDO. We left my lola’s house at around 7 in the morning. Together with my mom, two of her high school friends and my two cousins, we journeyed through winding, zigzagged road … Continue reading Loving Cagayan de Oro!

A blast from the past at Mama Chit’s

Mama Chit’s Coffee House J.P. Rizal Street, San Roque, Marikina City Being the foodie that I am, I decided to coerce (hehe) my friend to accompany me to Mama Chit’s -another recent discovery in Marikina. It’s suppose to be a coffee house but it looks more of a diner to me with it’s 70s-inspired interior. From the table cloths, the cashier counter to the numerous memorabilia and collections from past decades -you’d feel like you’re in a scene from the movie “Bagets”. Err….moving on! Mama Chit’s Coffee House is along J.P. Rizal Street in San Roque. It’s right across the … Continue reading A blast from the past at Mama Chit’s
