Desgo 大帅锅火锅: 24H Chinese Hot Pot in Makati–Tara Let’s Go? (Review)

Have you ever noticed the different restaurants in the metro catering to Mainland Chinese? One such resto is Desgo Hot Pot in Makati.

We were craving for some authentic Chinese hot pot but didn’t know which place to go to. Thankfully, we got a tip from our Chinese friend from Jaycees about the 24H Hotpot restaurant along Washington St.

We were excited to try Desgo Hot Pot with the boys. Here’s what we think about it…

RGIES DELICACIES: Arguably Iloilo’s Favorite Butterscotch Pasalubong!?

Argies Iloilo
RGies butterscotch- why this soft moist and chewy treat  a favorite pasalubong item from Iloilo?

Growing up in Bacolod, I’m very fond of eating butterscotch from the neighboring city Iloilo. There are two brands I swear by, and that’s Biscocho Haus and RGie’s.

Usually, you’d only get cashew’s in your butterscotch, but RGies was the first to introduce different variants from classic favorites cashew to mango, dates, choco oats, coffee, almonds, durian, lemon, banana and coffee flavor.

Argies Iloilo

R and G stand for Ramon and Grace Javelosa the owner couple of RGies. It was initially RG’s, but they decided to “spell it out” when they officially had the business registered.

RGies started in a small home kitchen back in 1986, where the dad would make homemade butterscotch and give it to his co-workers in Roxas city as “pasalubong” items from Iloilo. The co-workers loved it so much that they eventually, persuaded the couple to start selling their products because they were too embarrassed to ask for more of their homemade sweets.
