One of the restaurants I’d like to go back to more often in 2014 is Cafe Mary Grace in Greenbelt 2. They offer a fusion of Filipino and Western cuisine and has a wide variety in their menu – from pizzas and pastas to salads, soups and sandwiches. For those with sweet cravings, they serve for bread rolls, brownies and cakes. What more could you ask for? Mary Grace even has coffee, fruit shakes and tea.
I’ve been there twice this year- tried their Chicken Inasal sandwich while my office mate pampers herself with a hearty Seafood Chowder and their Classic Cheese Roll to ease of stress from work. I also enjoyed their Carbonara Pasta and Italian Sausage Pizza with a friend for dinner. Oh, did I mention I love their cozy interior,too? I’ll take photos some time for you. - Flaring Felicity

Craving for Japanese? I had my first taste of the famous okonomi-yaki, a famous savoury pancake with meat and vegetables at Kagura Restaurant in Little Tokyo, Makati. If you live or work in the business district of Makati in the Philippines, Little Tokyo in Pasong Tamo is a must visit spot. There are several Japanese restaurants which serves sushi, ramen and your other favorite dishes.
Okonomi-yaki for me was filling, and tastes like my pizza. It was served with light yet flavorful soy beans and miso soup which complements my okonomi-yaki. I’ll definitely get back to grab another one!
