Foodies were raving about the Sirloin Steak and Saikoro during the UTT7.0. They are Wagyu Steaks imported from Japan, which are sold directly by Mediaado Corporation.

We love the flavor and softness of the meat. It’s simply perfect for any home celebration this season. You can ask them how to prepare and cook it at home.

Congratulations, Mediaado Corporation, for doing well in the Ultimate Taste Test 7.0!

In a market crowded with various kinds of brownies, food for the gods, and revel bars during the Christmas season, a one-of-a-kind brownie stood out — Jack Brownies.

It’s a different kind of “spiked” brownies, this time using Jack Daniel’s Whiskey. Admittedly, it is a bit polarizing since people are either fans of the Jack Daniel’s taste or not. I actually prefer their Jack flavor over the Absolut Vanilla Brownie.

It is a bit heavy, fudgy and has an almost bread-like texture that is soaked with chocolate and Jack Daniel’s. I love it paired with either coffee or Cerveza Negra.

Congratulations to Blackinese Brownies for winning in Ultimate Taste Test 7.0!

Pinkberry Philippines: Sorry, Ice Cream…Pinkberry is now in Manila!

Pinkberry Manila-14.jpg

Ever since my first Pinkberry encounter in LA last Feb 2008, I was dreaming of Pinkberry coming to our shores.

I started a Frozen Yogurt Wars blog series in hopes of enticing Pinkberry to open a branch in Manila. The series started with Cold Spoon and was highlighted by the entry of Red Mango, which until yesterday was the best frozen yogurt in Manila.

Not anymore.

8065 Bagnet, Bagnet-Inspired Hole-in-the-Wall

8065 Bagnet-14.jpg

The double-fried crispy pork specialty of Ilocos is glorified in this Bagnet-themed hole-in-the-wall resto in Makati. This place feels like Fat Michael’s and serves good food with warm service.

It is named after its street number address: 8065 Estrella. It is owned by Alain Nadal (older brother of a popular singer of our generation — Kitchie Nadal) and his partner Jeff Tuason. It’s been popular among Manila-based foodies for some time now.

Here is our 8065 Bagnet experience…
