Molten Chocolate Cake at Chili's

One of the most comforting things in the world in my book (and I know many will agree) is a delicious, sufficiently-calorie-laden dessert, preferably involving chocolate. I have a short list of my favorites, and sometimes when I am having a hard time deciding which restaurant to eat at, I would simply choose one which serves one of my top sweets.

Molten Chocolate Cake

The Molten Chocolate Cake of Chili's Grill and Bar is part of my list. When my girlfriends and I want to meet up after not seeing each other for awhile, we often go to Chili's, so we can have some of this cake while catching up on the latest gossip.

Since this cake is quite big for only one person to consume (especially after a big meal), we just order one, and ask for extra forks. Don't get me wrong, though, it's not as if I'm talking about a big group who will have to divide the cake amongst four or five people. Usually, it's just me and one other friend, two at most. If we had to divide this cake more than three ways, it wouldn't last five minutes.

This cake never fails to satisfy me. I think it's the combination of the coldness of the ice cream and the heat of the gush of chocolate filling. That hot/cold sensation... Bad for the teeth, fantastic for the palate (and sometimes, for the soul).

Lab-as Seafood Restaurant in Dumaguete

The first time I went to Dumaguete City was some six or seven years ago. I went there to go scuba diving in Apo Island, one of the Philippines' best-protected marine sanctuaries. Apo Island is a 30-minute boat ride away from the city. There are two things I remember from that trip. One, diving Apo Island was great, and two, the food in Dumaguete was cheap.

So when my best couple-friends Anjou and Anton invited me to go diving with them in Apo Island over the Holy Week, I didn't hesitate. They never make me feel like a third wheel, so I figured going on this trip would be fun, and not at all awkward. Diving + cheap food... what's not to like?

We stayed at Antulang Resort, which is more than an hour's drive away from Dumaguete (and the airport). We ate most of our meals in Antulang (that's a whole different story), so I didn't really get to eat in the city until it was my last day.

After a couple of days of fantastic dives and a day of just bumming around in the re…

Catching up with cousins at Italianni's

My cousin Bong is a human rights lawyer in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He was in town recently to visit family and friends, and more significantly, to promote his self-published book, "God Loves Bakla". It talks about his painful struggle to stay in the closet, and the liberation he felt when he finally found the strength and courage to step out of it. I'm very proud that he has come out (no pun intended) with this book. It's going to be a very controversial book for some, and a helpful one for many others. But... that's a whole different story.

Anyway, I was lucky that he had some time to have lunch with me during his brief holiday, and he decided that we should meet up in Italianni's, because he missed having the caesar's salad there. Along with our other cousin Treena, we discussed his book over pizza and pasta. Luckily for me, they were agreeable to having pescetarian-friendly choices, so we ordered their Fettucine Alfredo with Shrimp, some Pizza Margherita,…

A new find: Relish, Hello Happiness! Restaurant

I'd seen the construction of this new restaurant "Relish" going on, because it's right beside Cerchio, where Chi and I so often have lunch. This week, we decided to finally try this new place. The facade amuses me, because it's so positive about how your experience will go. In fact, the complete name of the restaurant appears to be "Relish, Hello Happiness!" (Yes, it comes complete with exclamation point.)


When Chi and I entered, our first impression of the place was that it was a restaurant for "ladies who lunch", probably because a lot of the clientele at that time were, well, ladies. It was perfect for our purposes, as we wanted a place to chat and catch up on gossip since we hadn't seen each other for a few weeks.

I ordered the pumpkin soup to start, since I am still in search of the best pumpkin soup in the city, and Chi and I both ordered the Cream Dory with Lemon Pepper Sauce.

The pumpkin soup tasted a lot like those of other rest…
