Welcome to Sights and Flavors

We are a team of brother and sister (one self-taught chef and the other a self-proclaimed jetsetter) sharing our passion for travel, food, culture... and everything in between.

We narrate unusual ways to explore places. We don’t just travel, we go behind the scenes and dig deeper. We satiate our palates with the local specialties then set up our own test kitchen recipes to make sure you get only the closest to original local dishes. It’s like talking to your best friend who just came back home after 10 years of being abroad.

Yes, you will also see an array of hotels and restaurants, attractions, shops, and whatnot. But what sets us apart is our insider’s scoop and secrets, the unadulterated facts, first-hand experience, personal anecdotes and recommendations.

We believe that there is no cookie-cutter in traveling. Every trip is a different flight – a unique episode, a learning experience, a soul-satisfying journey.

Whether you are actually planning a trip or just traveling online, we’ll help you set your destination in motion.

And when you’ve come back from your trip, please let us know how you did. We’d love to hear your own anecdotes, too. In that way, we can all spread the joy!

Have the world and eat it, too!

You have worked hard for years. You have saved more than enough. Your gut tells you to unwind and take that much-needed trip. You know you deserve it.

Now, where do you start? Europe or America? Asia or Africa? You have always wondered how it is to travel around the world.

Or perhaps you’ve been there and done that. You may have encountered an amazing “hole in the wall” restaurant somewhere in Bangkok, or a spectacular shop in Europe with über friendly staff.

Your thoughts and opinions are what make up Sights and Flavors. Here what you say is what really matters. Let us know what you think.

In The Spotlight

I once heard that if you find yourself in Madrid, make sure to visit El Escorial. And that’s just what I did.

After celebrating the New Year in Madrid and seeing almost the entire city, I decided to take a day trip down to El Escorial.

Something To Devour

WHILE at work, I got a phone call from my good friend-slash-officemate Rose asking me if I could possibly cook for her Italian pasta with Manila clams.
