    Mckinley Hill and its hidden dining gem

    When I ask a friend, “Have you been to McKinley Hill?” I often get the answer, “Uhm… no. How do you go there?” Haha. Well, there are vans near the MRT-Ayala Station (SM Makati Side) that costs P25 going to McKinley Hill and vice-versa.

    McKinley Hill is in Taguig City; mostly known for its Megaworld condominiums, embassies, football field – Emperador Stadium, international schools and office buildings. But what most don’t know, is that the community also boasts a restaurant strip that serve an impressive array of foreign cuisine. These restaurants are really a must-try!

    1. Black Canyon Coffee

    They serve not only coffee but also internationally known Thai cuisine such as Pad Thai. The first floor is a casual dining area but if you want to chill in a cozy café style ambiance, then the second floor is for you. My favorite drink to order is their Cha Thai Yen (Thai Iced Tea with milk). <3

    1. Lucky’s Burger and Bar

    Formerly known as “The Burgery” it is one of the most affordable eats at posh Tuscany. The menu mostly consists of Western food favorites. I recommend Lucky’s Crispy Bacon and Egg. It’s like a Baconsilog with a twist!

    1. Wursty-Wursty

    Wursty-Wursty is worth the price and I must say, has a unique name. If you are in the McKinley area, you might want to check out this place. This is the best place to have some fun especially on a Friday night – grab some beer with your friends, jam with the band and eat a variety of finger food! You can buy a whole liter of draft beer that will last you the whole night for just P200. Not bad, right?

    Is traveling your passion?

    Do you want to hear the sounds of a new city? Smell the salty breeze of a new beach? Taste different cuisines? Meet different people?

    Yes, I want! Traveling is my passion. Exposing myself to different places and engaging in extreme activities excite me! May it be long hours of travel or not, I’m in!

    My goal is to travel locally (Philippines) and internationally. My purpose with this blog is to share my experiences and lessons with each trip. I know that it is the goal of many, if not everyone, to travel a lot. But not everyone has the chance to travel. So hopefully, my blogs will encourage and help them plan on going on their own unique trip.
