Coffee and Grub Nook: Tipsy Beans

TIPSY BEANS is a recent discovery of mine, was stuck because of traffic along the busy Jupiter Street in Makati due to sudden downpour (rain) so I lingered in this nice little nook of a coffee shop and they have quite the interesting concept so we tried a bunch of stuff from their menu. What makes this place unique is they also specialize with food and drinks spiked with different liquor, the menu is split into two category; sober and tipsy. With good, affordable price point and decent food and drinks, this easily would be one of my top choice for a coffee run when I’m in the area and they serve Vietnamese coffee too which is my absolute favorite.

Seafood Feast at Shrimp Bucket

SHRIMP BUCKET – A new restaurant discovery of mine, had a fantastic dinner here with some friends who love seafood, crustaceans in particular.  The concept has been around for quite some time but I was only able to try it last week where we had a nice feast of all things seafood and good. Shrimp Bucket has three branches in Bonifacio Global City, UP Town Center, and Il Terrazzo in Tomas Morato.

Terrace 45: A New Mom and Pop Restaurant in Quezon City

TERRACE 45 – Stumbled upon this new mom and pop restaurant and café and it turned out to serve some really good comfort food. A gorgeous place, this being the owner’s ancestral house converted into a restaurant, has quite the spacious indoor and al fresco dining area with a very nice ambiance. But really what makes this place quite the good find is their food, no frills comfort food that just works.

Checked out this new neighborhood restaurant and café located at the corner of Dr. Lazcano and Sct. Santiago in Quezon City, a few blocks away from Tomas Morato.
