Arts and Food at Erin's Artists' Lounge and Cafe | The Little Binger

Dine and Craft: Erin's Artists' Lounge and Cafe

Answer me, Bingers: when I say Cubao or more particularly, Araneta Center, what comes first to your mind? Probably Araneta Coliseum or Gateway. As for me, it’s my go-to place every weekend: Today X Future. But hey, I recently found a spot perfect for foodies and artists! And it is right at the heart of Ali Mall. Yup, you read that right. The historic Ali Mall is still alive and kicking and even had a fresh spot- Ali X! The newly-renovated area of Ali Mall houses Erin’s Artists’ Lounge and Cafe! I visited the place recently, tried their food, took lots of photos, and yes, I’m definitely coming back! Discover more of what this pretty cafe has to offer!

Hawker Chan Philippines Brings Singapore to Your Plates

Name one Filipino trait that everybody does whenever they visit a new place or country. One that is on top of my head is looking for a unique dining experience that is both exceptional and fit for the budget. My friends have been raving about this one restaurant that they frequented in Singapore. Hawker Chan made a name for itself for its great-tasting yet unbelievably affordable food. Michelin’s Singapore Guide recognized it in July 2016 as the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world!

Alright, now that we know all these credentials that the restaurant has, you might be asking, “now what?” Well, I’m not going to keep you waiting. Here is the tea: Hawker Chan is now open in the Philippines. Filipinos will no longer have to fly all the way to Singapore just to experience their best-seller, soy chicken. We attended their media launch last July 25 and here is our early take on the restaurant!

My Pawsome Chinese New Year at Le Village Lifestyle Park

When we say Chinese New Year, every Filipino would instantly be reminded of tikoy, hopia, and angpao! Well, a large part of the Filipino culture is inspired by Chinese. There is even a running joke that every Filipino has a trace of Chinese blood in them. With that said, it is given that even non-Chinese Filipinos do celebrate Chinese New Year. For this year’s celebration, I joined Fruitas Holding’s Le Village Lifestyle Park‘s celebration of the said event.
