Apparently known as the restaurant where the stars usually go. We had no idea it was a popular one, we just followed the list of our friend since its specialty is Wiener Schnitzel. One serving of their schnitzel is too big for a regular Filipino so its best to share. Of course, I ordered asparagus again. This place probably serves one of the best schnitzel’s in town. Although, its quite expensive, I would try it at least once.

In the same neighborhood of Kostbusser Tor, where all the turks have migrated to, you will find a few of the best Doners and Kebabs in the area. One of them in this restaurant where we stopped for lunch during our Urban Berlin Tour. Its a different kind of doner, they actually toast the bread after they put in all the condiments inside - somewhat like our flying saucer sandwich. If only we had more time, I would come back for more. For Filipino standards, 1 is enough to share for 2 people otherwise its just too much for 1 person.

Recommended by my brother’s friend, we went there not knowing what really to expect. We would just call in the morning and see if they can accept all 7 of us for dinner. The one thing with Berlin, make sure you make a reservation especially if you are a big group. They get surprised sometimes when I say we are 7 people.
Grosz reminded me of those restaurants in Paris - the old style expensive ones. It was a fine dining restaurant with a small menu but definitely good. Since the servings were always big, most of us would always share so that we would eat just right and not overeat. Luckily, it was season of White Asparagus while we were there and since I love asparagus, that’s what I usually order. You can’t really get it anywhere else as sweet and big as this. It looks like you’re just eating vegetables but its really quite filling and 1 order is enough. They serve it with Hollandaise sauce. Yum!!!
If you love deli sandwiches, this is the place to go. Their specialty is their pastrami sandwich but from what I’ve tried, almost everything in the menu is good. We ate there twice, first time i ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich with Avocado ands second time i ordered the pastrami sandwich. I would compare the pastrami sandwich to the one from Katz Delicatessen in New York but I think this is even better because their bread is so good.
Make sure also you save some space for their cheesecake! If you are in the area, this is definitely a must try!
We got to Berlin at 7am so we were so hungry by around 10am. After leaving our suitcases in the hotel, we looked around Hackersher Markt looking for traditional German food and this is what we chose. It was a good choice as you will see in the later posts that we kept coming back to this restaurant.
We ordered so much and everything was good. Apparently, the germans are known for their pork knuckles which is something similar to our crispy pata. It was their specialty and I have to admit it was quite good. The way the skin was cooked crunchy was yummy! The sausages were also good and they had draft beer of Berliner Kindl beer which is the most popular beer in Berlin.
Unforturnately, I can’t find the address of this restaurant online and the calling card I have is in Chinese. We took an hour and a half drive from Guangzhou to Shunde to take the ferry to hong kong and before that we stopped by in a local but sort of touristic restaurant.
It’s been said that Cantonese cuisine originated in Shunde so we were quite excited to try it. It was like dampa that we choose the seafood outside before entering the restaurant then we specify how to cook it. Again, you need a translator otherwise you will not be understood.
My favorite among all was the sea mantis cooked in soy sauce and garlic. I love sea mantis since its quite rare to find it here in Manila.

This place was recommended by the hotel which was also walking distance from us. When we got there, there was a line but they had some system that made it quite seamless. I got so shocked that again there was also no main dining and all private rooms were for a party of 10. We were just 3 so it was quite funny that we had such a big table to ourselves but apparently they had like 20 rooms of that size since the hallway was just so long.
The servers in the restaurant doesn’t really speak english good thing we were with a friend that speaks Chinese. Although their menu has english, none of them really understand the language.
Cantonese food is the kind of chinese food that I really like. It has so much flavor and perhaps its what we really know. I really enjoyed the food we ordered most especially the fried rice and the dessert. It was pineapple shaped bread made of flour egg and butter. It was actually so simple but it was so good. Even the girl from the hotel who recommended it told us to make sure to order the dessert.
I hope to come back here and try the other items in the menu since there were so much also. Since we were only 3, we couldn’t really order as much as we wanted.

We got to the hotel around lunch time so we decided to eat in their chinese restaurant before heading to the fair. There was really no main dining in this restaurant except for maybe like 4 tables in a small area. What they had around was really just several private rooms for private dining. It seems to be the norm in Canton because when we went to another restaurant it was mostly private rooms also.
We ordered the normal items from dimsum since we didn’t want to have too heavy lunch. Food was pretty good (should be since we were in China right?)!
More on Metis
Their desserts were divine! The Salted Butter Caramel Millefeuille is a must order and their Maxi Marnier Souffle. For the souffle, make sure to order together with your meal as it takes 25 minutes to do it. I ordered the chocolate one but I preferred the Grand Marnier better.
If you are in Bali, this place is a must go! Prices are reasonable too.

This was recommended by a friend that lives in Indonesia, she said it was her favorite restaurant in Bali, so I decided to spend my birthday dinner there. I was not disappointed. I loved the ambience - it was a simple and elegant al fresco setting.
I think everything we ordered was what we expected it to be. Especially loved that there was a foie gras menu and their escargots. I love escargots and this one was pretty good considering you’re not actually in France.
Make sure to reserve, they have an online reservation form that makes it very easy to do so. This restaurant is always full so its a must to get a reservation especially if you are a big party. If you arrive early they bring you to the bar area where you can order drinks.
