Making Restaurant Hunting Easy: Zomato on iPhone

November 22nd, 2014


Everyone feel a bit irked when our friends can’t decide where to eat, and they end up spending thirty minutes to an hour just arguing and going through our choices. More often than not, this results in them going back to eating at the same place for lunch every day, and when they do decide to “try something new”, they end up visiting some other restaurant that they haven’t visited in a while. It’s different, but by no means is it new.

Luckily, just about everyone has a smartphone now, and this amazing device has helped millions of foodies across the world. Gaming Realms, the company behind that recently launched Spin Genie, has said that “There were an estimated 1 billion Smartphone users at the end of 2012, representing 17% of total mobile users”, and this figure has continually grown. Studies even show that by 2015, there could be close to 2 billion smartphone users. In the Philippines, with cheaper smartphone lines like MyPhone and Cherry Mobile available, the smartphone penetration rate is expected to hit 50% by 2015.

Into The Noodle Culture at Ramen X

January 31st, 2014

Ramen X

If you frequent Alabang Town Center, you would know about Ramen X, a restaurant that is at the most awkward location. It’s at the mall’s new wing, near the new department store. It’s sandwiched by shops that sell surf gear, hiking essentials, shoes, and whatnot, so you would understand why we’re always amused whenever we pass by this restaurant. Then again, there must be a reason behind this. Right?

Carbo-loading at Brooklyn Pizza

January 13th, 2014

White Cheese, Pepperoni, Porko and Deluxe

I think I’m the only one here who hasn’t tried Brooklyn Pizza until last last Saturday. I subliminally insisted the boyfriend and a friend to dine here after ignoring Brooklyn Pizza’s quaint little corner in Alabang Town Center for so many years.
