Travel : Austria + Beaune + Paris

Salzburg, Austria

Konditorei - German for Pattiserie and Confectionery Shop

Touristy! This is where we bought Mozart Balls: Marzipan covered in milk chocolate

Veggie market at one of the plazas

Vienna, Austria

Creamed Spinach, Chicken Schnitzel, and Rosti (potato strips, like hashbrowns) from Cafe Mozart
They were really milking Mozart's popularity :)

My sister's order

Apple Strudel

I was able to finish this all even though it looked nasty :)))

Did a daytrip to Beaune, France, which is considered as a wine region. No shops were open so we had to settle for this sad-looking quiche and french bread with pesto and tomatoes

Macarons from a cute cafe

Paris - This was the meal served at La Nouvelle Eve. It was nothing special.

Unique Paris Find: We were exploring the Puces (flea market) and was able to chance upon Chez Louisette. This restaurant has the same vibe as Bellini's in Cubao X, Quezon City - Kitschy but the food, service, and ambience was great!

What to eat in Japan? - Tokyo and Osaka Adventures

Pic Spam!

Tokyo + Osaka May 2014

Yoshinoya Set: This was really cheap and filling. This particular branch is near the JR Kanda Station in Tokyo. Particularly, in a small street filled with different types of restaurants

We also found Ichiran again! Hands down the best ramen I've tasted :). We happened to pass by the restaurant on the way to the park on a Sunday

New discovery: Cheese Curry Noodles! This is so yummy! We bought all the available Cheese Curry Nissin Cups in the convenience store beside our hotel. (They only had 3 :/)

From Tokyo we took the Shinkansen to Osaka. While waiting for the train I was able to find yummy baon to eat during the 2hr journey. The dessert in the plastic cup is a traditional Japanese dessert, which I forgot the name of. It's made out of rice with syrup and powdered coconut(?)

Bubble Tea!

Takoyaki from Dotonbori

Believe it or not. This was the first time I ever saw/tasted real wasabi. Not the weird powdery stuff they serve at sushi restaurants. 

Kobe Beef

Takoyaki Museum located at Universal Citywalk in Osaka.

Note: When we went to the park, The Wizarding World was stil under construction :( bummer.

Inspiration: Jessica Alba + The Honest Company

I really admire Jessica Alba for all that she's accomplished. I really thought that she was just another pretty Hollywood actress and I'm really happy that she proved me wrong :) She co-founded an eco-brand which originally catered to new moms & dads, but now seems to be growing to become a brand which a family can grow old with. Her company, The Honest Co., sells eco-friendly baby and household products which are good for the environment and are well-designed.

Acting Disruptive: Jessica Alba + The Honest Co.

Yeah, I know there's nothing food-related in this post, but I just wanted to share this series on AOL, titled Acting Disruptive which featured her and her company. If you don't care for her or her projects, no worries, there are other actors featured in the series!

But, since I'm a fan, please watch the Acting Disruptive featuring Jessica Alba, if anything, you'll probably learn something new!

Wannabe Baker: Puff Pastry Apple Tarts = YUM!

Wannabe Baker: Yummy Apple Tarts!

I got really hungry earlier and couldn't find something sweet to nibble on, then I suddenly remembered that I had a pack of puff pastry in the fridge. YAY for impromptu apple tarts for wannabe bakers like me!

This was actually my first time baking anything using puff pastry, and I must say, it was yummy and easy! I got the recipe from and just added a bit of cinnamon to the apples and butter on top of the tart. People at home loved it and were asking for more :)

Wannabe Baker Experiment #1 : Puff Pastry Apple Tarts = Success!

Tip: Puff Pastry is a bit hard to find in the Philippines. I bought mine from Shopwise Cubao and I've seen S&R carry them (but they'd probably be more expensive)
