I'm the early bird so I get a change to try the newest product of Sugar House which are the Polvoron, Salted Caramel & Chocolate Popcorn and Leche Flan which is to die for. 

Pigging Out at Samgyupsal King's Unli BBQ

Let's face it! Koreans have a big influence to us nowadays and we almost die to their musics, dramas, celebrities & artist and not only that even with their foods.

My Tomochan Ramen Express Experience

I was so excited when I got invites to a Ramen food tasting event. I personally love eating Japenese food, and Ramen is one of my comfort foods, especially during cold seasons. 

I grew up eating Ramen at home with my Tita's. One of them was based in Japan for more than 20 years so the food is really familiar to me even when I was a kid. the culture. 

Pak na Pak Breakfast with Unipak Omelette

Everyday, every morning I always ended hurrying out because I need to do a lot of things early in our house, for work and to attend my duties as a mom. 

We usually have Pandesal with either peanut butter, butter or cheese and a malt drink for breakfast. However, when my kid wants something heavy we cooked rice and pair it with the usual hotdogs, egg, and sometimes the left over from last night's dinner.

Bulalo Night At The Green ATS Restaurant

The fast two days was really a hectic one for me. Ask me why? 

I attended a retreat and strategic planning in the other. It seems like I need to reflect for  moment and that so-called retreat was perfect just in time for me. I enjoyed it!

Good Food Tour Philippines Features Mexican and Spanish Cuisines

It was my first time to join Good Food Tour Philippines of Food Panda and on their seventh edition, it's all about Mexican and Spanish dishes. Food Panda as well as my co-blogger friends conquered the Tomas Morato Avenue in Quezon City and had our Mexican and Spanish food expedition.

A Gastronomic Experience At Mesa 30th Ayala Mall

I was so excited to try the food of Mesa although if you come to think of it, Filipino Dish is totally common and always served in our own house. However, what #Mesa30th has to offer is something really interesting. 

Pinoy's love eating and its already proven. Even its raining the best thing we can do inside the house is cook and eat with our family. One of the usual dish that we can instantly cook during these days was a canned goods. 

One of the favorite Sinigang meat is fish and when we say fish dish, we tend to go fish with our National Fish, the Bangus (Milkfish). Bangus is very versatile because whether you put it in Sinigang, stuffed it and grilled like a Relyeno, or split, seasoned and fried as Daing. Filipinos will surely love it, especially when it was boneless for a more easier to eat.

I'm absolutely a fan of bread and pastries. I love sandwiches as well. One of my favorite spreads is peanut butter. Like me, my friends used to bring sandwiches in the office. We even share and exchange sometimes.

I was one of the fortunate bloggers who got invited to try the new Gardenia Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pocket Sandwich. It was new to my ear although I know Gardenia offers a variety of sandwiches, rolls, etc. who is perfect for snacks. I know because I used to buy it in the grocery for my kid's school snack.

I was so delighted to attend another food tasting event last week when I get surprised that the typical Filipino cuisine can do better. Grilla is a casual Filipino family restaurant that caters both locals and tourists. They invited me to try their food as they opened another store in SM MOA by the Bay.

Your favorite ice cream brand, #DairyQueenPH, rings the New Year with another exciting flavor to spice up its mouthwatering Blizzard collection. Your ice cream experience will never be the same with Dairy Queen's Blizzard of the Month, the all-new and its kind flavor Toblerone Blizzard!

To date, there are already 8 stores of the well known "Open 25 Hours" in Manila, Goodah!!! has a good start this year to open a new branch located in Baclaran. 

Not only that because they also launch a new and exciting dish that many Filipinos love. The classic dish Kare-kare takes its new level to be become Krispy in Goodah!!!

Nothing beats Filipino dishes. That's all I can say, even though we all grew up learning to try different cuisines from around the world. I would say that we have our own dishes that are truly world class.

Well, of course, we also have influences from other countries. I was so delighted to meet Chef Myke Tatung Sarthou. 

Mediterranean Food is not new to us. For me, their food is so interesting because I don't usually eat their dishes and even not making it. I find it a previllages to try and experience the good food they have. Have been tried the Kos Greek Ouzeri like them, I discover that they serve healthy food.

One of the best tasting and interesting food around the world comes from Greek. They have shared a wide flavorful dish that contributes to the culinary world.

I was invited to experience Greek cuisine that I will definitely recommend to all of my friends to try. Have you ever heard about Kos Greek Ouzeri? 

Got another product to review. I'm so glad that there are lots of people and brands who trusted me to review their products. Last weekend, I received a package from Sarangani Bay Premium Bangus and I love it. The freshness and the flavorful boneless milkfish of Sarangani Bay.

One of the best part of food review is that you get the products straight to your doorsteps. I was actually super excited to try the Sarangani Bay products. It was perfect since I am now practicing eliminating eating pork for about three months now.

To give you a background of what kind of fish I eat. Well, I love those fishes who has white and pink meat.

One of our family's favorite food is pizza. We like both thin and thick pizza, of course we love to try out different flavors.

We usually eat in a pizza house more often. My kid best ever favorite is Hawaiian and four cheese pizza. I don't like those who have a lot of veggie toppings.

The matcha mania in the Philippines never stop. As we can experience the launch of the first matcha-themed food festival at the Newport Mall in Resorts World Manila. This whole month of September, Resorts World Manila signature restaurants and selected Newport Mall, dining establishments will give you a Matcha spin on classic recipes that will guarantee you to taste and maximized the flavor of the healthiest forms of green tea called Matcha.

Taco Bell, the world's leading taco food chain, invites you to try their newest offering and in the innovation of their classic taco with Chalupa Supreme.

The Chalupa Supreme features a deep-fried crispy and chewy flatbread filled with seasoned beef, sour cream, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and a three-cheese blend. The result is a delightful mixture of textures and flavors that is distinctly Taco Bell. Transforming the everyday taco into an experience you won't find anywhere else.

It was such an honor to be part of group of people who will review and try first hand as Taco Bell, the worlds leading taco food chain presents an irresistible offering that must try, the Gordita Supreme.

This mouth-watering treat is shaped and stuffed like your favorite taco but with a twist. Made with seasoned beef fresh lettuce, cool sour cream and dried tomatoes all cradled inside a warm soft flatbread.

It was so nice to be part of the 6th Mandala Park Weekend Market. The monthly market will once again treat its visitors to a slew of homegrown merchants that promote the local culinary scene. And if that isn't enough, the shared space will play host to a fun activity that will surely get the kiddies moving. 

When I think of a place where I can relax while sipping a good cup coffee while chatting with friends. The only place that comes to my mind especially if I wanted somewhere near my place it was definitely the Dome Cafe in Sharangri-la Plaza.

The place is so cozy and very friendly. I would say that this is the place for business meetings or meeting a friend for a short conversation. 

When we say barbecue the very first thing we think of is Liempo and admit it or not we Pinoys are always go crazy about it. 

Maybe because of it’s the irresistibly smokey goodness that wins us over. Every piece or stick of barbecue grilling over glowing, red-hot charcoal remains to be the perfect invitation to go on an eating or drinking spree with friends, loved ones, or office mates.

Morganfield’sTM, an American diner offering the biggest & juiciest pork ribs in town is sure to become another foodie destination when it opens in Uptown Place at Fort Bonifacio after making waves in Malaysia, Singapore and China.

Their heavyweight hero, Sticky BonesTM is an authentic prime pork rib slowly baked and smoked for hours in coal and hickory wood, grilled to perfection so that it is off-the-bone juicy, then basted with the sweetness and tanginess of their special homemade BBQ sauce, a unique hickory barbeque sauce that comes with a hint of cider. Priced at only P750 for half slab and P1,395 for full slab, this is definitely good for 3 or more.

I was invited to try the food for a Tapa Festival from one of well-known fast food when it comes to Tapsilog, GoodAh!!! It was known in their Goto Special and Tapsilog during mid-90s. One of my favorite place to dine-in when I was young. My favorites are Goto Special and Cicken Mami way back then. Today, it was one of the favorite Tapsilog places where you can have a variety of choices.

From Europe to Asia, this is something big! The Iconic Danish chocolate milk drink Cocio is now arrive in Asia for the very first, starting in the Philippines, with the launch of Cocio classic and the global launch of Cocio Dark.

Imagine even in their homeland they haven't try the Cocio Dark and we are lucky because we are the first to try the Cocio Dark.

Love their motto: "eat good, do good, and feel good"
