Must-try Camiguin Food (and Where to Find Them!)

Camiguin is a small island off the coast on the northern side of Misamis Oriental. Second only to Batanes as the smallest island in the Philippines, Camiguin spans just 238 sq. km. At its longest, it is just 23 kilometers or basically the whole stretch of EDSA.

Despite its size, Camiguin is a trove for foodies. Most of the food is still hugely Filipino, but International influences are slowly creeping in. Thanks in part to the expats who settled in the island, and the growing tourist community with varying palates.

Here’s a roundup of our food finds at Camiguin:Read more

Indonesia: Emerging Hub of Quality Food Ingredients #FiAsia2018

When people speak of Indonesia, the first things that come to mind are the beautiful islands of Bali and Sulawesi, or the bustling city and historic culture of Jakarta. While these do make a good representation of Indonesia, there’s something more than just vibes and economics that come into play that make it such a great country.

Indonesia has at least 6,000 more islands than the Philippines – and both countries are blessed with lush greens and the abundance of nature’s gifts. The difference is in the fact that Indonesia has realized how these gifts – and I’m not just talking about sights – can play a role in economics and food culture of the world.Read more

Kam’s Roast in Manila: Is it as Good as Hong Kong??

Kam’s Roast is an internationally-acclaimed and Michelin-starred restaurant in Hong Kong popular for their HK roasts. With the flagship Manila branch opening in Megamall, there is no more need to fly to Hong Kong and line up for hours just to get a taste.

Foodee Global Concepts, the group behind Tim Ho Wan, Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodle, and Todd English Food Hall is responsible for bringing the famous roasts to Manila.

How does it compare to the one in Hong Kong?
