SEF CADAYONA & MAX COLLINS IN: A FUNNY VALENTINE, THE MARIO'S WAY!



             Juan Tamad, aka Sef Cadayona was at it again.. This time he was lazy to look for an romantic date spot for Valentine's Day! He wanted to impress his beloved Marie, (also known to us red blooded males as the stunning Max Collins) and perhaps her mom, the ever-sungit Candy (Melanie Marquez), so whose help did Juan ask for in his search for the perfect date place? 

         Why, the Pickiest Eater in the World, that's who! 

         I wasn't going to miss this chance to play Cupid, so I strapped on my wings, grabbed my Bacon Bow, and took the lovely couple to Mario's Restaurant in Quezon City, to celebrate Heart's Day, The Mario's Way!

#LevelUpYourRice with Doña Maria Premium Quality Rice.. And an Instagram Contest!!

Doña Maria Premium Quality Rice

        We all probably take rice shopping for granted. I certainly do. I don't even know the difference between the different types of rice. Once I almost bought rice that's used for kakanin (rice cakes) just because I asked the vendor which type of rice is the sticky one. Something like Japanese rice. True story! Fact is if we go to the supermarket to buy groceries including rice, you might want to make sure you're getting the one with the best quality. One that looks good, smells good, and tastes good of course. An excellent example is this brand that most probably looks familiar to you (especially when you're the one who does grocery errands). It's Doña Maria Premium Quality Rice!

        Fresh off my Prawn Tempura Hangover from International Tempura day, I set my sights on some of the newer items of Tokyo Tokyo’s menu, particularly their Donburi Meals! I couldn’t help but notice that there are two new dishes on Tokyo Tokyo’s that are not only affordable, but will also satisfy the cravings of the most ravenous carnivore and,  for those that are looking for lighter fare, without sacrificing on taste!

YUMCHEE: TAKING YUMMY TO THE NEXT LEVEL

A photo posted by RichieZ (@pickiesteater) on
          I have made no secret for my love of Chinese food, with dishes like Sweet and Sour Pork and Salt and Pepper Spareribs among my favorites. I'm always on the look out for an amazing Chinese restaurant, so when I visited Bonifacio Stopover a few months ago and saw the restaurant "Yumchee Premium Chinese Food" under construction, I was immediately intrigued. 

      Months later, when it finally opened, I was fortunate enough to receive an invite for me and my friends from The KTG to be among the first to try this new restaurant, there was no way I could say no! 

     And thankfully so, because we may have found the most "Bang for the Buck" restaurant in BGC!

PUREFOODS CORNED BEEF: DELICIOUS FOOD MADE EASY!




        No joke, but Purefoods is our go-to breakfast food. Whether it’s bacon or any of their canned goods, it’s always our ever dependable quick meal. Truthfully, it’s not even just breakfast. It’s our to go food when we don’t have time to prepare anything more tedious to cook. Or if we want to eat something and our stomachs are not willing to wait, but you’re looking for something fulfilling at the same time, opening up a can is the best solution.

     Though its canned, it’s very versatile, allowing you to get creative with the simplest of ingredients. It’s easy to play around with and turn it into spectacular-looking dishes in very easy steps.

So easy that I did this one myself. Being a person who doesn’t cook, that’s saying something!

National Tempura Day Promo at Tokyo Tokyo!

                              

        What is it about Tempura, that everyone seems to go crazy over itI always say, go to a buffet, and you’ll see even the most timid of people fight for the last piece of tempura. The tempura station usually has a line as long – or sometimes even longer – than the carving station! And even when they dump in a new batch, within seconds, you can be guaranteed that it’ll be all gone.  

        Being a Picky eater, I normally don’t eat dishes with shrimp or prawn. Just to avoid a lengthy discussion, I would tell people that I’m allergic to it. But when there’s Tempura, all bets are off.  It’s funny, because whenever we go to a Japanese restaurant, my wife and I would fight over the Tempura. She’ll stop and say, “Hey, aren’t you ALLERGIC to Shrimp?”  I would simply tell her, “ Oh no, my doctor said that the Japanese Breadcrumbs neutralizes the toxic agent that triggers my allergies.


Which is usually met with the roll of the eyes by my wife.

CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN DREAMING: THE NEW MENU!


          I am a huge fan of Italian food, but because of my hyper-acidity, I have to be careful when eating anything tomato based. Which is precisely why I'm always on the look out for Italian dishes that stray away from the usual use of tomatoes, and instead delves into experimenting with oils and creams as their sauce.

          Case in point was the day that I tried the new dishes California Pizza Kitchen had to offer, which much to my delight, featured a number of items that don't use tomato sauce!

          A couple of weeks ago, some blogger friends and I were flown to Hong Kong, courtesy of Air Asia and Vikings Luxury Buffet. Apart from going on an epic Hong Kong Food Tour, we were invited to try the new In-Flight menu of Air Asia, dubbed, "Santan: Flavors of Asean". 

      My friends and I were in for a big surprise, because we discovered that Air Asia's food could stand toe to toe with a restaurant, any day!  

    Here is the first batch of dishes I tried on my Flight to Hong Kong!
