Nestled in an inconspicuous alleyway is Leeds Street Bakery, a small bakery and cafe which warrants a visit every so often. It’s a nice place to retreat to when you’re in search of a quiet place where you can enjoy a light meal. S and I initially saw posts about it online and it took us a while to finally pay it a visit. It’s truly one of the places I wish we knew about sooner than later, as it has become one of our most recommended spots in the city.
Our obsession with Japanese food is a well-known fact among our friends, so it’s not surprising that I’m writing a post about another Japanese restaurant. S and I love eating at Kazu Japanese Restaurant not only because their food’s consistently enjoyable, but also because their staff are some of the loveliest people we’ve interacted with. Service here is always A+! Don’t mistake this one for the Kazu Yakitori Bar along Courtenay. They’re under the same company, but we much prefer the vibes at this one along Tory Street.
Sushi and Sashimi. Always starting our meal with the best way possible! The sashimi plate with its slices of fresh tuna, snapper and salmon is our go-to. It’s honestly a bit on the expensive side, but we don’t mind paying a little more for quality. We’ve also tried their salmon nigiri and California rolls on two different occasions; both were equally superb.
Living in a place that’s filled with so many dining establishments has its perks. We continue to discover new places and get to try them one by one. It does get challenging when we can’t decide which dishes to try though! Luckily, S and I joined some of our friends for lunch on a random weekday to avail of Chow‘s $25 lunch deal, where you get to choose two dishes, your preferred type of rice and a drink. It was a great way to sample some of the things Chow has to offer. It’s worth every penny too, with the serving sizes being so generous!
I chose to have the Jungle Curry and some Pumpkin and Cashew Fritters, along with a glass of their Peach Iced Tea. I found the drink to be watered down a little too much, so I definitely wasn’t a fan of that. The curry, though, was delicious!

My husband and I got into playing board games quite recently. Thanks to YouTube channels like Tabletop Games and Watch It Played, we’ve become addicted to these things. It’s only been a couple of months since we started playing co-op games together, but we’ve already bought several games. Our latest acquisition is Pandemic, made by Matt Leacock and published by Z-Man games. We couldn’t find a copy of this back in Manila, despite visiting several gaming stores. Thankfully, they had plenty of copies here in Welly and we got one from Cerberus Games.
