Review: Salamanca

salamanca

A lovely lunch at Salamanca restaurant on a “quite” sunny Sunday..

A few days after my last day at work, my husband kept teasing me about “celebrating” it. He wanted me to treat him for lunch – or maybe he is just trying to find a reason to dine out, LOL! I mean, how can I possibly treat him for lunch right now, right?! I am unemployed!

Review: Fallon and Byrne (People’s Park)

Enjoyed the lovely view while having lunch at Fallon and Byrne (People’s Park)..

A couple of weeks ago, we went to Dun Laoghaire for a quick family day out on a long weekend. Back then, we hoped that it was our last long weekend in Ireland. But it wasn’t. Nevertheless, it was great for us to experience the lovely seaside views in Dun Laoghaire during the last few summer days of 2017 – for sure!

Review: Wagamama

A quick and spontaneous lunch at Wagamama..

When in need of a good-tasting and kid-friendly places for a bite – Wagamama is one of the first things that pops to mind. Why wouldn’t it? It is one of those places where you are guaranteed with freshly made Japanese food that doesn’t cost as much! Plus, they are one of the child-friendly places around Dublin without a fuss – so it makes them truly likable for us.

Review: The Oar House

When we find ourselves in Howth, we often go to The Oar House

Howth is a top-choice when the sun is shining brightly in Dublin. It is a great place to spend the day walking around the area. Apart from buying fresh seafood from the local fish monger, there are good quality restaurants around the area, too!

Suddenly missing Seoul: Drunken Fish wedding anniversary dinner!

drunken fish

We recently celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary! Woot! So, off we went to have dinner at Drunken Fish..

Let me begin by saying that this is not a thorough restaurant review of Drunken Fish – a Korean restaurant in the IFSC area in Dublin. We’ve been here countless times before and have eaten more “familiar” Korean dishes. But, this is the first time we visited the place after our recent Seoul trip. We went here on one of the rare sunny and warm weeknights in Ireland. And, also to celebrate our wedding anniversary!

The August Bank Holiday just passed by! That day, we spent the entire day in Dun Laoghaire..

With all the upcoming changes to our family, the August Bank Holiday weekend could be our last bank holiday here in Dublin. And because of that, we wanted to make the most of it – by going to places we’ve never been to before. One of those is Dun Laoghaire!

Review: ML Chinese Restaurant

A late post, but let me share with you where we went for Mother’s Day..

Chinese food is one of my husband’s comfort food. But even if this is mostly my husband’s “thing” I also miss the occasional yang chow fried rice or Schezuan-based dishes quality Chinese restaurants around Dublin has to offer!
Similar to the years before, we celebrated Mother’s Day last May. We’ve grown accustomed to this because this is when we celebrate Mother’s Day in the Philippines. So, we decided to keep what we know!

Had a mini celebration lunch at Yamamori along the Quays..

There’s a lot of things going on in our household over the past weeks. I don’t want to divulge anything at the moment until everything’s settled, though. But let’s just say that things are progressing quite nicely.

Dongdaemun Stroll!

Why did we miss to go around Dongdaemun area when we visited last April?!

Let’s say that I am having some Seoul withdrawal symptoms recently. For the past weeks, I have been reminiscing on our experiences in Seoul. And, wish that it is far easier to go back than it is now!
