About Me

Eat to Live. Live to Eat.

My name is Maria Niña, friends here in Dubai call me Nina. I am the author of thetasteofgood.com. Its a blog that caters to the Filipino audience living in UAE, particularly Dubai.

Filipinos’ population in UAE is around 700,000 and 450,000 of which lives in Dubai. That is 21.3% of Dubai’s population.

I am reviewing different cuisines that Filipinos are skeptical to try. I visit the restaurants and compare their food to the food similar to what we have back home so Filipinos will know how the food tastes like. That being said, please use Google translate when you read some of my posts as it is in Taglish or Tagalog-English.

Every cuisine is unique but if someone who has the same tastebuds as theirs have tried it, then they would not be hesitant to eat it as well.

I believe that food is the eyes of a country’s culture and tradition. This blog will help me and other Filipinos see other cultures by trying different cuisines through the help of my multi-cultural friends. Reviews will be posted on Lafang Reviews. Lafang is a gay lingo which means eat or to eat.

Eating out and saving money at the same time? Reviews of restaurants I bought from Cobone or Groupon can be found on Lafang Deals.

I will post some of my fusion recipes and my friend’s recipes too on My Recipes.

Eating out all the time is unhealthy, Super Food will be about the healthy stuff I put in my tummy.

Although I live to eat, I will touch on other things too like travel, night life, events, new stuff, etc. which will be posted in Liwaliw which means to go on a pleasure trip.

Calling all Filipinos in UAE! You don’t know what you are missing!
