We like Dulcelin Gourmet's Red Rice with Shrimp Shiso & Quail Eggs, which is similar to Thailand's Miang Kham snack. It comes with different flavors that complement and balanced each other out, in a small, bite size form. This is a popular appetizer in their restaurant at UP Town Center. 

Dulcelin is famous for their Mango Torte, but foodies also love their Cacao con Leche. :)

Congratulations to Ricky and Mico Morelos for winning the #3 top spot in Ultimate Taste Test 12!

Blue Bell ice cream is extra creamy and quite addicting. I personally like their Sea Salt Caramel flavor.

Ever since Sonja's introduced the Red Velvet flavor in 2006, Filipinos have fallen in love with it. :) Blue Bell produces the best Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream we've ever tasted in Manila. 

Order the Blue Bell Red Velvet Cake & Sea Salt Caramel flavors for a unique ice cream experience this coming holiday season.

Congratulations, Blue Bell Ice Cream for winning the 4th spot in the Rockwell UTT 2014!

Foodies agree that this is one of the best lasagna dishes in Manila. :) It's creamy, cheesy, and a little salty. The cheese can be overpowering though, so adding a bit more meat could help balance it out.

This is a good dish to order for potluck parties or for your celebrations this Christmas season.

Congratulations to Ms. Bhe for winning in the 4th Rockwell UTT!

Most foodies raved about the Boneless Lechon Belly de Cebu from Belly Bob's. The lechon belly was cooked in authentic Cebu-style--crispy skin, a bit salty, no need for lechon sauce, and best paired with vinegar.

The sisig they offer got mixed reaction because it's too oily, and reminded people of how fatty it is.

Instead of serving a whole lechon this Christmas season, consider serving Boneless Lechon Belly.

Congratulations to Belly Bob's for winning in the Ultimate Taste Test 12 in Rockwell!

PINKBERRY surprised everyone with a healthy, palate-cleansing yogurt treat. The Salted Caramel with Almonds combination was the best and the boys kept coming back for more.

With the Yogurt Craze in Manila coming to an end, only the best will survive. I still love Pinkberry for its high quality and balanced yogurt flavor, healthy goodness, and playful toppings.

Congratulations for winning in the 4th Rockwell Ultimate Taste Test!

BUFFY's supplies one of the best Carabao's Milk I've tasted. :)

Their milk is fresh and very creamy. Most foodies raved about the Blueberry or Strawberry Yogurt flavor, but I personally like the Chocolate flavor.

They are located along the Sta.Rosa-Tagaytay road in Silang, Cavite. Don't forget to pass by Buffy's on your next trip to Tagaytay.

Congratulations for winning in the Ultimate Taste Test 12!
