Relik Celebrates Cinco de Mayo

During one of the many events I attend, I was given the privilege of being invited to a dinner to commemorate the Cinco de Mayo festival. This was just going to be dinner over a few drinks. The event was held at Relik Tapas Bar and Lounge.

Though the place is a tad bit difficult to find, my over-all experience of the place was simply lovely.

From the plush interiors to the very exquisite wine selection, you can always bring a few friends over for drinks, a nice meal or just to hang-out and chat.

It gives off a very casual vibe but still encapsulates elegance.

Another plus point: I like the idea that they have a dress code. It makes the place that more exclusive. Also, just a word of advice, don’t bring food or drinks from the outside. Management discourages it. I had to finish my large milk tea in one sitting, lol.

I appreciate the fact that they have a dress code.

Relik has its own DJ booth which can be best utilized for birthday celebrations and events (professional or otherwise).

The lights were warm and the place, cozy. You will feel right at home easily.

Ambiance is everything to me and Relik Tapas Bar and Lounge nailed it.

Celebrating the Chinese New Year in the Philippines

Once again, I am out and about in the lovely metro.

Below are some of the food adventures I’ve been up to lately, while welcoming the Year of the Snake with a good friend.

Since it was the Chinese New Year, I wanted to celebrate by having Italian for lunch and cake for dinner. Go figure, haha.  😉
