Dragon Foodie Review: Ka Tunyings Cafe Visayas Avenue (Open Rice)

KT 23

Hello Sweeties!

I have been working in the Visayas Avenue area for sometime but I never went beyond the 7/11 area in search for food. This is a mistake on my part, who knew that there were a lot of great food finds so close to my work place?

One of them is Ka Tunyings Cafe. Owned and named after one of the TV host and Anthony Taberna or best known as the “punto-por punto” man of ABS-CBN`s morning show Umaging Kay Ganda (Beautiful Morning).

So after a 5 minute jeepney ride along Visayas Avenue, I find myself facing the 2 story establishment of Ka Tunyings Cafe.

The first floor composed of their bakery and they mostly serve an interesting variety of breads. More on that on my next post focusing on the breads and pastries.  For this post I would focus on the All Day Breakfast meals and the wonderful ambiance of the dining area found on the 2nd floor.

Dragon Foodie Review: Hidden Gem found in Marcos Hi-way, Oliva Bistro Cafe

Oliva Pasig 1

Hello Sweeties!

I was surprised when I got an invitation from Zomatoph for a Foodie Meet-up along Marcos Hiway. A road I actually frequent going home. I hardly ever see any interesting dining areas along Marcos Hiway other than those inside the malls.  Oliva Bistro and Cafe  located in front of Slimmers World Marcos Hiway is virtually hidden from the road. Although they have that sign at the  front I felt, it doesn`t really encourage people to turn right towards this area.

The venue`s decore is simple and very similar to that of their Visayas Avenue Branch. At the lower right Executive Chef Kannan, one half of the owner of Oliva Bistro Cafe

The decor of this venue is similar to that of their counterpart in Visayas Avenue. The colors are simple and clean, the place is family friendly. According to Executive Chef Kannan, he is Indian by birth but Pinoy in heart, he decided to stay in the country and marry his wife Eden. They like to think of Oliva Bistro Cafe not a “fusion” restaurant but a place that serves hotel style food without the steep price tag. Their menu is a great mix of American, Italian, Singaporean, Indian, and of course, Filipino.

Are you excited to learn about the dishes Oliva they served? Read on!
