HOT-STAR is a popular shop in Taiwan’s Shilin Night Market and famous for its large chicken chop.
Unlike those of the other Taiwan Chicken Chop places that have opened in Manila, Hot-Star’s fried chicken is 30 cm long — big enough for 2-3 persons — and priced just right at P110-P125, depending on the flavor.
I visited Tacloban with my friend Spanky to create an ongoing Voluntourism Program in partnership with Operation Santa, to help the people of Leyte affected by Typhoon Yolanda.
As donation fatigue sets in, the artificial economy created by International aid is removed, and the media starts to focus on 2016 politics, the Yolanda-affected areas will be forgotten — unless we do an ongoing program to help the people rebuild.
I love Tacloban because of its yummy food and warm hospitality. Visiting the city, 140 days after the typhoon hit, changed our life perspective forever.
Mama’s Table gets our two thumbs up. Highly Recommended! 🙂
Your Baguio foodie trip would not be complete if you don’t get to experience Chef Vicky’s food, warm and kid-friendly hospitality and authentic Baguio Home ambiance.

MANOR at Camp John Hay is one of the best places to spend Christmas in the Philippines. You get the cold December weather, log wood cabin accommodations, actual pine Christmas trees, and a romantic restaurant, Le Chef, to complete the festive experience.
Here’s a photo essay of our MANOR at Camp John Hay Baguio Christmas….

In most features for Ultimate Taste Test, Yuan’s Wings is consistently mentioned because of its Original Chicken Wings. Their version has the right balance of spicyness, sweetness, and tanginess, and we like it because it’s a bit different from your usual soy garlic flavor.
Congratulations to Jeremy Salvan, IT guy by profession but foodie at heart, for winning the Top Overall Spot (Main Dish category) in the Ultimate Taste Test XI!

I remember Ivory going to one of the Ultimate Taste Test events before as a foodie because of her love for food and her dream of one day making her own mark in Manila’s culinary scene.
Fast forward to 2013, Ivory is the 3rd placer of Masterchef Pinoy Edition (known as “Kusinera Fashionista”) and has launched her food business, The Sultry Chef in Mezza Norte at Trinoma.
Everybody loves her roast beef, pasta, and anything else she creates. She has a very lovable personality and always tries to give her best service when manning her own stall.
Congratulations to the Sultry Chef for winning the #2 spot in Ultimate Taste Test XI!
