MNL Eats: Ramen Nagi

Alright! So I’m super late to the game but I finally got to try Ramen Nagi specifically the shop at Robinsons Magnolia. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I’ve heard very mixed reviews from many many people. So I steeled myself to sit through an already hot afternoon to slurp a piping hot bowl of potentially delicious ramen.

MNL Eats: Nikkei

Brah brah was in town for a hot minute during the holidays and requested some fusion food because we definitely had our fill of Chinese food with the OGs (that’s what I call my grandparents and they actually respond).

I’ve been meaning to try this place but was hesitant to bring mom to because she is a purist when it comes to food. We dragged her along anyway. Heh.

When an ambulance driver tells you that, well, you will be very flattered too. Especially if you’re an Asian woman who loves to destroy stereotypes 😛

Everything is stable at the hospital (nothing serious yay!) now so thank Sweet Baby Jesus. And Buddha! Can’t forget Buddha!



MNL Eats: Ooma

You see, Facebook and Instagram is how I find out about all the new restaurants from my friends. They post really cool photos of what they eat and to be honest, that’s enough to make me wanna try it. My friends are very very hip and the only hip thing I have over them is that something is probably up with my acetabular labrum. Or something.


OOMA. I imagine I’d say it the way I would read something in all caps. (Source:
