THE CORNER MARKET PODIUM - STOCKWELL CAFE + LOUNGE


The sparkling new renovation of Podium Mall opened up opportunities for more shops and restaurants to settle into the bustling Ortigas center. Recently, a sprawling Food Hall opened, named, "The Corner Market". Spanning roughly around 1,200 square meters, The Corner Market is set to house 17 food establishments in its massive halls.  

      Though not all 17 are operational yet, your friendly neighborhood Pickiest Eater made the ultimate sacrifice for his beloved readers, to try the food stalls that have opened their doors at the Corner Market.. Where good food is just around the corner!


       Stockwell began as a charming little coffee shop in the Quezon City Scout Area. People flocked to their endearing place not just for the homey atmosphere, but for their fresh brews and delicious food as well.




         I took a bite of their Seafood Marinara (P235), and was fairly impressed. I couldn't eat too much because of the tomato, but flavor-wise, I must admit it was quite tasty. The acid of the marinara sauce wasn't too strong, while the slices of squid were rather generous, ensuring you get a piece in every bite you take.



      From their entrees, Stockwell brought out their Chicken Cordon Bleu (P220). This was a delightfully cooked breaded chicken roll, stuffed with ham and cheese, and doused in a luscious cream sauce, that goes perfectly with the side of rice it comes with. 


         Apart from their food items, Stockwell takes pride in their selection of coffee items, especially with their talented baristas skill in Latte' art that not only look fantastic, but tastes amazing as well!
       Delicious comfort food, and soothing coffees all in one stall.. Stockwell Coffee + Lounge is a great addition to The Corner Market Food Hall!

SCOTT BURGERS: THE RETURN OF THE COMEBACK


        I'm not ashamed to let my age show so I'm going to tell you all now, college life for me began in the mid-nineties. During that time, Taft wasn't really the food haven that it has become now. The decent places to eat were few and far between. Whenever my classmates and I would find an acceptable restaurant, we would be quick to share our discovery with one another. There was one particular place that I remember my friends telling me they particularly enjoyed, and it shocked the hell out of me. It was this small stall underneath the stairs of the LRT, and I remember it so vividly because it had an iconic statue of a boy with his tummy hanging out of his too small shirt sitting on a barrel as he carried a huge burger over his head right in front of it. 

     And that's how I was first introduced to Scott Burger. I'm not going to lie to you.. I didn't try it. I distinctly remember that a burger was about P25, Buy One Take One. Admittedly, that was the very same promo that my friends were raving about, but the Picky Eater in mean refused to take the risk. 

   Cut to: More than 20 years later, Scott Burger is making a comeback in a BIG WAY, bringing in a their classic brand of burger for a New Generation. This time, I knew I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try the burgers, especially when I found out that it was infused with creations by Celebrity Chef Sharwin Tee!

HOT DATE NIGHT AT FLAME: DISCOVERY PRIMEA


        Since Rina and I had Rain, we admittedly don't get to go out on date night as often as we used to. Not for anything, but we both do feel kind of guilty when we leave Rain at home and we go out and enjoy a night out by ourselves. Truth be told, our little Rainbow makes all our our family days (or nights) out so fun, it never really bothers us. 

     However, during our staycation at Discovery Primea a couple of months back, Rain decided to stay in the room with her yaya and watch Disney Channel instead of having dinner with us.

    Since this gave us the opportunity to go on a date night without straying too far away from our little girl, Rina and I made the most of it.. And as you could imagine we fell in love.... This time with the food of Discovery Primea's premiere restaurant, Flame! 

    (And one another again of course hehe)
