Burger King Whopper

        Earlier this September, Burger King reminded us of the importance of grilling. And their widely loved grilled burgers remind us what makes Burger King burgers so special! And why they were the winner for The Choice 2015's Favorite Fast Food Burger!

Cannon PowerShot G7 X

        As you all may know, in this blog, it’s my wife who does the photos. I don’t really know how to work the DSLR camera with the huge flash. So in events when my wife can’t join, I sweat bullets, worried if I would be able to take decent food shots. So I have to rely on my awesome photographer to help me with the settings of the camera.

Cebu's Famous Kuya J Now in Megamall!

Jericho Rosales Kuya J

        Kuya J was actually a former simple eatery in the streets of Cebu city. It’s one of those hole-in-the-wall restaurant that people just kept going back for because of their delicious and satisfying Filipino dishes. It was so popular that here it is now, operating in Megamall! And it is endorsed by the famous award-winning drama actor in the Philippines, (and also was Rina’s crush), Mr. Jericho Rosales.

       I will admit that my fondness for Japanese food is limited to most of their Deep fried or stir fried offerings. Much to the delight of my wife, I don't touch any of the raw stuff (meaning more for her), But I instead feast on popular dishes, such as Teriyaki, Katsu, Teppanyaki and Tempura. 

      I have a few staple dishes when ordering at a Japanese restaurant, and one of those is Chicken Karaage. Rina thinks it's a "cop out" because it's technically just "fried chicken", and not very Japanese-y, but what can I say, the heart stomach wants what it wants. 

    I had heard good things about Chibi's Kitchen down South from my blogger buddy Hefty Foodie, so I was elated to find out that an incarnate, "Chibi's Karaage", had opened a branch in the new SM Light Mall along Edsa, because it was more accessible to me when compared to Las Pinas and even SM North Edsa. 

    What makes the arrival of Chibi's Karaage so exciting, is that it takes a dish that is known for its simplicity, and finds a way to elevate it to new heights.

Healthy Goodness with Magnolia Brown Eggs

Brown Eggs

More egg, more fun!

        Next to More rice, more fun, this is the motto that my wife and my daughter lives in. Rain can’t get enough of eggs. That’s her default food. She can even eat it alone, without rice. She took after her mom who loves eggs as well. When we’re at a restaurant, she always goes for something with egg. And when we’re at a ramen place especially, she would order extra aji tamago.

        Anyway, we’ve been told before that consuming too much eggs are bad because of the cholesterol. Eggs actually carry good cholesterol. And this gives us peace of mind whenever we prepare Rain her favorite meal.

        But since we’re consuming a lot of eggs in our household, we might as well take it to the next level. As parents, we have to exert extra effort in making sure we feed our family a healthier choice. (Bacon exempted, of course).

That being said, did you know that brown eggs are actually tastier than white eggs?

Applebee's Philippines

        My first memory of Applebee's was in New Jersey when we met up with my Aunt Eva and Uncle Tony. It was late at night and it was still open, and there were a lot of customers still hanging out and having a great time watching a football game.(See my post here) This was way back in 2013. And now, fast forward to 2 years after, Applebee's is finally opening here in the Philippines! In the heart of Bonifacio Global City, Taguig!


           After wowing our taste buds with their successful "Taste The World" series, Pepper Lunch is back with a new set of sizzling plates that is undoubtedly going to be another hit! 

         Get ready for Pepper Lunch's new Paella Festival!

The Nostalgia Dining Lounge's Indonesian Food Festival!

Indonesian cuisine

        We can't quite clearly remember if this was the first ever Indonesian buffet that we've tried but this is definitely the one that stuck! Oakwood Hotel's The Nostalgia Dining Lounge features a delicious Indonesian Food Festival which started last September 8 until the 18th, 2015. It's funny because Richie was supposed to just drop by that day because he had an important appointment. But he ended up staying for a while. That's how good the food was!

Hi Everyone! 
A special shout out to everyone that watched the First Episode of the Pickiest Eater Web Series!

I said I would be happy if we could get 500 views, and so far we've got over 1,400 and counting! 
We are currently planning the second episode, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as the first! 
In case you haven't seen it yet, you can watch it here: 

Anyways, I wanted to once again apologize for the the decreased frequency of my posts. 
My family has ventured once again into the food business, and so I've been spending most of my time making sure it opens smoothly.

If you are in the area, please feel free to drop by The Grill Boy, located at 2nd Floor of The Spark Place, along P. Tuazon St. in Cubao (Across SM Cubao)

I'm there every day, so in case you see me, please feel free to say hello :) 

Anyway, back to regular programming.. For now.. 

     I've been a fan of Chef Katrina Alcantarasince my first trip to Mesclun Bistro a couple of years ago. Her food always exudes finesse, and impressive knowledge of classic techniques. It's always interesting hearing her explain how a dish came about (often using French terms that I have no clue what they mean, so I just nod along like I do, saying, "Uh huh") through her different experiences. 

     Her latest concept, CDP Global Table, is a collaboration with seasoned restaurateurs Malou Fores and Kristine Locsin, that takes your senses on to a culinary voyage through different dishes inspired from their travels together. 

    Luckily I was able to tag along for the ride!
