After J.Co Donuts and Coffee have opened their branches in SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia, they have finally opened their much-awaited Greenbelt 3 branch. The Greenbelt 3 branch of J.Co is just beside Figaro. We were teased by J.Co for a long time with their coming soon sign. Continue reading “J.Co Donuts and Coffee in Greenbelt 3”
Civet Coffee is the most expensive coffee in the world. And of course, the best place to try Civet Coffee is from where it’s made.
After visiting the Mt. Apo Highland Resort, we went straight to the Mt. Apo Civet Coffee Farm to get a closer look on the place where Civet Coffee is made. Its location is at the foot of Mt. Apo, the highest mountain in the Philippines. Its soil is perfect for growing coffee beans. Continue reading “DFAT 2012 Day 2: Mt. Apo Civet Coffee Farm”
22 Prime at Discovery Suites is known for their steaks. The Cochinillo Asado, as an addition to their menu, is a welcoming change. Thanks to Discovery Suites for inviting me to try this out.
The Cochinillo Asado is a suckling pig dish that is slowly roasted. The result of this is that the skin of the pork is crispy but the meat is juicy and tender. 22 Prime’s Cochinillo Asado is served with spring asparagus, and garlic-roasted potatoes. The sauce for the Cochinillo Asado is their home-made peach chutney. Be sure to taste it first without the peach chutney. The peach chutney adds contrast to the tasty Cochinillo Asado.

Ilustrado is a Filipino/Spanish restaurant located in the heart of Intramuros.

The Malolos Heritage Cuisine offering is an outcome of the partnership of Ilustrado with Dez Bautista, an artist, historian and culinary expert from Malolos, Bulacan. Dez Bautista belongs to the well-known Bautista clan who owns the Bautista ancestral house in Malolos. Continue reading “Experience Malolos Heritage Cuisine at Ilustrado”

After a long trip from the Kapatagan Valley, we headed to SM Davao to have dinner at Piyesta KTV and Restobar. It was just opened this year. They have rooms for KTV where each room is named after a Philippine fiesta. I like the concept of the restobar because it promotes Philippine fiestas and Filipino dishes too. Continue reading “DFAT 2012 Day 2: Piyesta KTV and Restobar”
On our first day at DFAT (Davao Food Appreciation Tour), we had our afternoon snack at Ranchero. It was a typical Filipino merienda where we had some pancit bihon, fried and fresh lumpia, dinuguan with puto and some sweet local delicacies. I remember when I was still working in an office in Makati City, I would either have some pancit bihon or fried lumpia as an afternoon snack a few hours before my work in the office ends. Continue reading “DFAT 2012: Ranchero’s Merienda Cena”
Cafe by the Ruins (in the morning)
Because it was so hot in Manila, me and Sharlyne went to Baguio City and stayed there overnight. We really made the most out of our Baguio City trip by having dinner and having breakfast at Cafe by the Ruins. I like the ambiance of their restaurant. You’ll feel like you’re just eating at the comfort of your own garden. 🙂 Continue reading “Cafe by the Ruins”

I first tried the inasal of JT’s Manukan Grille several years ago with Sharlyne and some of our friends.
