Just opposite Cafe Bob’s at Lacson Street, right at the center of all the foodie action in Bacolod City, is the Open Grounds. Basically it’s just an open area where with different food concessionaires where people can dine, drink booze and listen to music at the same time. The place reminds me of the Collective in Malugay or Cubao X in Quezon City because of the street art around. Continue reading “2015 Bacolod Foodtripping: Cafe Bob’s Open Grounds”
Eating healthy doesn’t mean that we’re stuck in eating greens. Earth Kitchen says otherwise. They have recently opened a branch in Bonifacio Global City with their first branch in Quezon City. We were glad to have been invited by Earth Kitchen to taste their food. Earth Kitchen is proud to say that everything they serve is made from scratch: from pasta, ice cream, tortilla, risotto and soups. The restaurant is dedicated in supporting local farmers from Got Heart Farm in Tarlac and indigenous communities around the Philippines which I really appreciate. The restaurant is a partnership of Got Heart Foundation and Hizon’s Catering.
We definitely loved the food here and we hope that you will too. Here are the reasons why you should try Earth Kitchen:

It’s actually not the first time that I’ve tried a coffee with coconut. We were able to try Cong Caphe’s Coconut Coffee in Hanoi, Vietnam. And it was so good.
J.Co’s Coconut Mocha Frappe is very much different from Cong Caphe’s Coconut Coffee. After a few sips from this delectable tropical treat, I immediately noticed the Macapuno (Coconut Sport in English) that sits at the bottom of the drink. You have to mix it so that it won’t be very sweet.
Hainanese Chicken Rice is a popular dish in Singapore. If you’re going to there, you have to try it at least once because your visit won’t be complete without it. You may try the Hainanese Chicken Rice in hawker centers like Lau Pa Sat, and at Tiong Bahru. I can still recall our journey to Tiong Bahru. We took a bus going there. It was quite a long bus ride but it was all worth it. Hainanese Chicken Rice is served with fragrant chicken-flavored rice and condiments such as chilli, ginger, and dark soya sauce.
