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!

MECHA UMA: “Absurdly Delicious” Food by Chef Bruce Ricketts!

As featured in BEST OF TAGUIG: 10 Most Awesome NEW Restaurants in BGC & Taguig 2014!

Mecha Uma-54.jpg
MECHA UMA is a Chef-Driven Restaurant by Chef Bruce Ricketts of Sensei Sushi fame. The name is a Japanese expression for absurdly delicious food.

They serve predominantly Japanese food but are not limited to it. Foodies have raved about the Tasting Menu served Omakase-style (but is still dependent on the chef and what’s freshly available that day). They also serve an a la carte menu of the best dishes featured in the Tasting Menu.

We tried Mecha Uma’s a la carte menu with our Mercato Partners and here’s our experience…

MECHA UMA
G/F RCBC Savings Bank Corporate Center,
25th Streets, cor. 6th and 7th Avenue,
Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Philippines

VASK: Awesome San Sebastian Weekend Brunch in Manila! @VaskManila

VASK San Sebastian Brunch-40.jpg

VASK MANILA‘s San Sebastian Weekend Brunch features eat-all-you-can Spanish Tapas with Cochinillo and Paella, and drink-all-you-can Kalimotxo. It’s like the best of San Sebastian Cuisine every weekend lunch.

The food is cooked and served in small batches, unlike a typical buffet where everything is cooked in advance and displayed the entire time. The Spanish food selection is well-curated and the kitchen ensures that foodies will rave about each item.

Here’s a photo essay of our yummy San Sebastian Weekend Brunch experience at Vask…

My BASKIN-ROBBINS Ice Cream Cake Experience :) @BaskinRobbinsPH #31happiest

Baskin & Robbins Ice Cream Cake-14.jpg

I’m always hesitant to buy an ice cream cake, because I think about how it would melt easily and how messy it is to handle.

Recently, I got a Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake–which we brought to the welcome home party of my favorite sister-in-law–and BR addressed my concerns by packaging the cake well.

Here are some tips when you decide to buy a Baskin Robbin Ice Cream Cake for your next celebration…
