While I can’t say that I know a lot about cars, I do get a kick out of seeing really nicely set-up ones.  Plus, I’ve recently discovered that I like the thrill of speed.  And what good are roads if you can’t even spy some drool-worthy vehicles every once in a while?

When it comes to trying out new places, it doesn’t always have to be a newly-opened restaurant.  It just has to be a discovery for you…which is what Trio was for me when I finally got to try it.

Trio offers you the dining experience of either a bistro, a pizzeria, or a wine bar.  And, being the pizza-lover that I am, you can easily guess what I picked.  They offer several items on the menu in threes like crostinis, brushcettas, and salads.

We all know that when it comes to the food business, if you don’t get the food right the first time, you’re basically setting yourself up for ruin.  On the flip-side, if you hit gold with a recipe and let a customer base know about it soon enough, you can definitely make it.  And last.

Buon Giorno – A Good Day Starts With a Good Breakfast

This site has moved.  To view the full entry, please click here: Buon Giorno – A Good Day Starts With a Good Breakfast

Breakfast sets the tone for the entire day.  Rush it and you might find yourself rushing the entire day.  Give enough time to appreciate the meal and you could fuel yourself into dealing with the rest of the day in a more level-headed and systematic, but relaxed pace.

The drive to Tagaytay on a Sunday set-up the anticipation for something warm, hearty, and preferably light to jumpstart our stomachs.  Traffic was light and the weather was just pleasant that day.

The choice to go to Buon Giorno was perfect.
