ARLA POP UP AT SM AURA PREMIER: LET THE GOODNESS IN!


             It was only 2016 that I first heard the name "Arla", not realizing that its products, including that of it's sister companies, have been a part of my life for quite some time. My cousin posted on his facebook page, a picture of a delicious piece of toast, smeared in cream cheese with a jar of "Arla" in the background, and raved about how delicious it was. After that I was rather intrigued. During my next trip to the Supermarket, I chanced about a small Jar of Arla, and was pleasantly surprised with how affordable it was, and decided to try it for myself. 

         The following day, I had the Arla toast I had seen in my cousin's picture, and was not disappointed, making a Jar of Arla Cheesy Spread a staple in our grocery list. 

        Which is why I excited when I found out that Arla had set up a Pop Up Station at SM Aura Premier, showcasing some of their delicious products, prepared as delicious combo meals that imbibe the clean type of eating Arla adheres to, within a budget friendly range!

HAPPINESS IS A GLASS OF ALASKA MILK!


         When I was a kid, I always said that when I have a child, I would be the “cool dad”. Being a Picky Eater, my 8 year old self told my mom when she tried to convince me to finish my milk before allowing me to have dessert, “When I have kids, I’ll let them eat and drink anything they want!”. 

        Fast forward more than 30 years later, and I discovered raising a daughter is really no joke. You realize the importance of nutrition in your child’s diet, and how critical it is to her growing up. It’s a good thing Rain, unlike her picky daddy, is a fan of Alaska Powdered Milk drink, and with it’s Lakas Nutribuilders, I know she’s getting healthy benefits with every glass!

Through the years, Tokyo Tokyo has taken serious steps to set itself apart from its fast food contemporaries, by constantly evolving its menu to include classic Japanese dishes, as well as favorites from the orient wiht innovative, modern twists.

     I’ve enjoyed their Beef Festivals, Their Ramen offerings, and their Karaage Entrees, but I couldn’t help but be excited at the thought of Tokyo Tokyo creating a new Pork Ribs dish, for us meat lovers… The Umami Pork Ribs!

MERANTI HOTEL'S SPECIAL CHRISTMAS SET MEAL!


       I think I've made it clear in a previous post how absolutely relaxing my stay at Meranti Hotel was. I lived in my Grandfather's in the Scout Area for a few years during my college days, so this actually gave me a new perspective to a familiar neighborhood. We spent many Christmas celebrations there, so I felt right at home when Meranti invited us over to feast on their upcoming Christmas Set meals that will be served this Holiday Season at the hotel's flagship cafe, Maple at Meranti!

        Here's a peek at the delicious spread we enjoyed!

A YULETIDE FESTIVAL AT F1 HOTEL MANILA


       I believe I've been going to F1 Hotel frequently for the three years, and I've seen some pretty amazing Chefs from around the country take the reins in their kitchen. Each time I've visited, I can safely say that I've always been impressed with the various dishes that I've tried.  

      With all due respect to the previous Chefs who undoubtedly did an excellent job, I can safely say the current line up of Chefs of F1 Hotel, led by Executive Chef Decker Giocko is by far my favorite. Even during his days at Cake Club, I've seen Chef Decker as a kindred spirit.. in leyman's terms, "ka-vibes ko siya" especially when it comes to our taste in food. 

    With 2016 coming to a close, I was invited to F1 Hotel once again to try out their Holiday spread, and I was blown away by the various entrees that Chef Decker and his team whipped up as part of their Christmas and New Year Buffet... and I was not about to say no to that!

FATBURGER FINALLY OPENS IN GLORIETTA 2!


           The year was 1997, and the place was Las Vegas. My brother and I chipped in part of our vacation money to take our dad out on a limo ride around the City of Lights for his birthday. My Godmother was a travel agent so we got a great deal on our limo ride, but since we had splurged on the wheels, it meant dinner would have to be sacrificed. 

           Our Limo Driver picked us up at the MGM Grand promptly at 6:45pm, and I noticed my dad, despite being in an incredibly luxurious limo, seemed a tad crabby. My dad is notorious for getting grumpy when his tummy grumbles so it clicked to my brother that if he was going to fully enjoy this limo ride, he would need to get some food in his stomach. 

        I told my Ninang about the situation, so she casually asked the Limo driver where was a quick but delicious place to grab something to eat before we went on our tour around Las Vegas (we weren't allowed to eat inside the car). The driver suggested his favorite burger spot which was conveniently located three minutes away, just along the Las Vegas Strip. And he even told my aunt that since he hadn't had dinner yet, if we bought him a burger, he'd only start the time AFTER we all had eaten.. A concession he was willing to make ONLY for a restaurant called, Fatburger. 

      That told me that this must be one awesome burger. After one bite of a Double Fatburger with Bacon and Egg, I just had to give that Limo Driver a high five. 

    19 years later, Fatburger, has become one of the emerging burger chains in the global scene, and has now finally opened a branch in Manila!
