Makati Food Crawl

Soft Shell Crab 'Wich at 8Cuts

Our food crawl started at 8Cuts in Salcedo village. Yes, everyone ordered the Soft shell Crab ‘Wich–an 8Cuts and Ooma collaboration. How can one not give in to this delectable treat? The soft-shell crab is beer-battered. On top of the soft-shell crab are the unagi sauce, melted mozzarella cheese, herbed aioli, aligue mayo, mango salsa, and salmon-skin flakes. These are all sandwiched in between 8Cut’s brioche buns. Continue reading “Makati Food Crawl”

Mushroom Pepper Steak – McDonald’s newest offering

McDonalds Mushroom Pepper Steak

I discovered something new at McDonald’s today. They gave in and are now pairing their burger patties with rice.

One may order a one-piece or a two-piece mushroom pepper steak. It costs less than a hundred bucks even if ordered as a value meal. 

The burger is smothered with creamy and peppery gravy, and is topped with button mushrooms. 

While I love the peppery gravy, I still like Jollibee’s Big Burger Steak more.

J.Co’s Coconut Mocha Frappe

Coconut Mocha Frappe at J. Co

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.

An Easier Way to Cook Hainanese Chicken Rice

Hainanese Chicken Rice - 1

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.

Hanoi Coffee Experience

Drinking vietnamese coffee


Going to Vietnam without drinking their coffee is like going to Singapore without eating Laksa. You can definitely see coffee shops in every street corner and one can really see that the coffee culture in Vietnam is very strong. The standard Vietnamese coffee is black coffee mixed with sweet condensed milk. Their coffee is strong but because of the condensed milk, the acidity is subdued by the sweet condensed milk. We didn’t get tired of drinking their coffee anytime of the day and just sitting at their stools whether on the sidewalk or inside an upscaled coffee shop. Continue reading “Hanoi Coffee Experience”

After a filling dinner at Brickfire and Buffalo’s Wings N’ Things, we walked to SM The Block from SM North Annex. We went to Twisted Candy. The candies that are being sold there are made on the spot. It makes you wonder how they were able to come up with such designs on those candies. You can check out this Instagram video by Sharlyne. 🙂 Continue reading “SM North Food Trip 3: Twisted Candy”
