Dragon Foodie Review: Pinoy Comfort Food Finds at Full Belly Craft Kitchen

Full Belly Craft Kitchen VenueHello Sweeties!

It has been a while since I attended a foodie meet up by Zomato Philippines. I was very excited to return to Tomas Morato to check out the 4 month old Full Belly Craft Kitchen. A few blocks away from GMA TV Network, away from the hustle and bustle of the usual busy Morato area. It is easy enough to find though,  I actually got off at the nearby gas station and walked to get to this restaurant. I did not mind. It just served to whet my appetite.

 The 2nd Floor can hold up to 50 guest comfortably. I particularly like the home style feel to the place and the vintage accessories displayed. The ambiance is clean and easy on the eyes. Young children can come in and be comfortable, with no fear of breaking anything. A great place to take you family for lunch.

Dragon Foodie Review: Asian Fussion Cuisine at Fika

F1Hello Sweeties!

Last week I found myself at the Capitol Greenstreet Golf Course. While I am neither a resident of Quezon City nor a Golfer, you might be wondering what I am at such an unlikely place. Well, Zomato Philippines invited me to this hole in the wall Asian Fusion Restaurant called Fika.

Fika, in Swedish means to have  Coffee Break. According to Head Chef and First Gourmet Academy Director Mats Loo  The word “fika” is an example of the back slang, in which syllables of a word were reversed, deriving fika from kaffi, an earlier variant of the Swedish word kaffe (“coffee”). From fika also comes the word fik (a colloquial term for “café”).  As a young man, he told himself he will be an owner of a cafe and he will name it Fika.

Although this small inconspicuous restaurant serves coffee based drinks, it is NOT just a Cafe, but more of an Asian Fusion Restaurant.


From a Cafe Fika was built to help the young chefs in training from  their school First Gourmet Academy (located at the top floor of the same building) to test their skills in food preparation and service. Fika`s menu grew to as the talented young chefs learn and develop their talents.

Locate at the right side of Capitol Greenstreet Building,  with a great view of the golf course greens and the sunset. This is the perfect place to hold intimate gathering with family, friends or to pop the question to THE ONE.
