Otto’s Berlin Döner

November 5, 2015


Last year on my way to Barcelona, I made a stop at Frankfurt. I always used to lay-over for a few hours at Frankfurt but last year, I decided to make that lay-over especially long. It gave me enough time to go downtown and browse around the city. And by browsing, I mean trying local […]

One afternoon, I made an impulsive decision of going to Roncesvalles to see my friend Valerie.  Since Valerie was a beer fan, I sought for a pub in the Roncesvalles area that where we could hang out.

Hello #Raptors at Duke’s Refresher Bar

April 30, 2014


Go Raptors Go! And a dormant basketball fan awakes…. What hockey is to Canada is what basketball is in the Philippines.

One of the things that my visiting cousin particularly enjoys are having a taste of different beers from different countries around the world.  So I gave him a taste of what little I know.   I made him try Canada’s Alexander Keith’s White, Rickard’s White, Molson Canadian, Labatt Blue, Mill Street and Steam Whistle. I like […]

Oktoberfest 2010 in Kitchener-Waterloo

October 15, 2010


It seems all my intent to retro post past foodie travels have to wait as I am running around Toronto and surrounding area to show my favorite cousin around.  Last weekend, we went to Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario to check out the Canadian version of Okotoberfest ( Before indulging in beer, we headed out first to see […]
