House of Polvoron

House of Polvoron

Polvoron is a Filipino dessert that is made up of toasted flour, powdered milk, sugar and melted butter. I like polvoron that is compact and that is not too sweet.

I love the polvoron from HOP. My favorite polvoron variant from HOP is the pinipig. Their other polvoron variants are: Classic, Pili, Cashew and Cookies and Cream. Even though the other variants are good, pinipig has been my all-time favorite.

A box (18 pieces) of each polvoron variant costs 100 pesos while a box of assorted polvoron (20 pieces) is being sold at 108 pesos. If you’re having a hard time choosing which polvoron variant you would try, I suggest that you get the assorted so that you could also try the other variants. 🙂

La Mia Tazza Coffee was a coffee shop that Karla and I frequented while we were in Legazpi, Albay.

We went to the Embarcadero branch because that’s where we go have our night cap. Continue reading “La Mia Tazza Coffee in Legazpi, Albay”

Meal Delivery Service in the Philippines

Here in the Philippines, having a personal chef delivery service is not that popular yet, but in the US, it’s very common. Probably because we Filipinos have a notion that having a meal delivery service would compromise the health and nutrition of our family. Actually, most of the these home delivery meal services offer organic options that are not available in the local market. These kinds of services are for people who do not have time to cook for themselves or for their family and wanted to have a balanced full meal. Some of them would even offer meals that are included in a specific kinds of diet such as the South Beach Diet, High Protein and many others. This is a good way for you to eat healthy dishes even though you  are very busy. All you have to do is to just call and tell them what you want.

I know that some gyms collaborate with personal chefs because they can target the “fitness” buffs who frequent to the gym. To those who have tried this, can you tell me how was it? I wish  I can try this some time, the question is are they expensive and is the food delicious?
