Taps: Davao’s Breakfast Capital

Tapsilog at Taps

Taps is said to be Davao’s breakfast capital. Because of its popularity amongst the locals and because me and Sha love breakfasts, we decided to have breakfast at Taps at a branch near the People’s Park (along Palma Gil St.) so that we could also take pictures there.

Milk Tea in Bacolod!

Milk Teas at Milk + Tea Station

It’s not only Manila that is riding onto the milk tea craze, Bacolod has their own milk tea place too! We went to Lacson Street to look for something to eat when suddenly we saw this milk tea place called Milk + Tea Station. It is on top of the new Calea in Balay Quince (yes, Calea now has a bigger place in Lacson!). So after our yummy dinner at Cafe Uma, we decided to have a night cap in Milk + Tea Station before going back to our hotel.

I learned that they already have branches in Manila, particularly in SM Sta. Mesa (which is very near my home) and Tomas Morato. Continue reading “Milk Tea in Bacolod!”

Heavenly Angus Beef Belly by H Cuisine

Slow Roasted Angus Beef Belly with Demiglace Gravy at H Cuisine

Chef Hannah’s Most Awesome Angus Beef Belly

Slogans or marketing phrases sometimes deceive us so I am usually doubtful about this. When I saw that H Cuisine boasts that they have the most awesome Angus Beef belly, I said to myself, let me try this first before I believe. I thought that it would just be another marketing slogan but I was totally wrong. H Cuisine’s Slow Roasted Angus Beef Belly paired with their homemade demi-glace gravy tasted awesome but I couldn’t say that it is the best in the market.

CBTL™ for your coffee, espresso or tea

CBTL Machine - 3

It has been awhile since we’ve seen the CBTL machines (a single-serve beverage system) in Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Greenbelt 3. We’re glad that we’re able to try this out first-hand. 😀 I know there are other single-serve beverage systems out there that are being sold. But I think that the selling point of the CBTL machine is that you can have your favorite CBTL tea or coffee at home 😀 . Continue reading “CBTL™ for your coffee, espresso or tea”

Various cupcakes at Sophie’s Mom

Sophie’s Mom is not just your ordinary neighborhood bakery and confectionery. It’s located at Aranga cor. Santol St. in San Antonio Village, Makati City. Even if it’s located in a residential area, I would go out of my way to buy some red velvet cupcakes and Spanish bread which can normally be bought in our neighborhood bakery.

Batac Miki and Empanada – Two Street Foods You Dare Not Miss

Empanada and Miki at Batac, Ilocos Norte

Before we went to Paoay, we had a little stop over in Batac because of the Miki and Empanada. They are part of our culinary bucket list which we will not dare miss.

Empanada vendors are convened in this place called “Empanadahan”. You will not miss this because this is just opposite the Marcos Museum and beside Batac Church. Once you’re inside the Empanadahan, you will see a lot of Empanada vendors. Now what to choose? At first we didn’t know what to choose so we chose whatever we felt like choosing. Then we realized after “checking in” to Foursquare, a tip was left there which mentions that Glory’s was the best Empanada. So we did buy another Empanada, this time Glory’s, and we tasted the difference. Glory’s is tastier compared to the first one we bought. I guess it’s because their Empanada is stuffed with more longganisa. Continue reading “Batac Miki and Empanada – Two Street Foods You Dare Not Miss”
