Mongolian Buffet in One Tagaytay Place

Mongolian Lunch at Azalea Restaurant

I’d like to think that going to any kind of buffet is an act of rationalizing things which can be defined through this sentence: “the end justifies the means” (from Machiavellian philosophy).  The end goal in Mongolian buffet (and other types of buffets) is to have a full stomach but getting there (the means) would require you to experiment and sometimes make you a glutton ;). BUT, on the other hand, I would like to twist it a little bit and say that even though you rationalize things, who says you can’t enjoy the means of achieving your end goal? The Mongolian buffet makes it more interesting because you decide what to put inside your bowl even though there’s only one way of cooking it. There is a variety of ingredients to choose from: meat, seafood, vegetables, rice, noodles. Have it your way,whether you want it to be sweet, spicy or savory. You can even do it more than once!

Nuvali Food Tour

Seafood Platter in Reyes Barbeque

Seafood Platter from Reyes Barbeque

Weeks ago, I was invited to participate in the Nuvali Food Tour. As expected, it was a day of restaurant hopping and food tasting. We literally ate and run as we were only allowed to stay in the restaurant for 20 minutes.

Nuvali is both a residential and commercial community wherein evo-living (evolutionary living) is reflected from the structures up to the practices of the whole community. It is a reflection of a harmonious relationship between nature, technology and industry. I’ve heard of this place before but this was my first time to step foot to this wonderful place. It’s just near Manila, only 1.5 hours away.The restaurants are in Solenad, the commercial area in Nuvali. Continue reading “Nuvali Food Tour”

Starbucks VIA Ready Brew Now Available in the Philippines

Since Starbucks is widely popular here in the Philippines, we will be the fourth country to offer Starbucks VIA Ready Brew in the market. We will be the second country in Asia, with Japan being the first, to have this in all Starbucks branches around the Philippines. This is an exciting news for all Starbucks Coffee lovers because this is their “instant coffee” option that will not require any special equipment. In other words, it’s for lazy people who doesn’t want to be hassled to go back and forth to Starbucks Coffee. 😉  The Starbucks Experience can now be brought to anywhere and can be consumed anytime of the day. There are 3 varieties of Starbucks Via Ready Brew to choose from: Colombia, Italian Roast and Decaffeinated Italian Roast.

The Starbucks VIA Ready Brew will be available on mid-September 2010.

Happy Coffee Drinking!
