Whamilicious Burgers At Wham

Wham! Burgers has been one of those burger joints established in the early Y2K that surpassed a decade. So that means only one thing- the burgers are good! We used to hangout at the branch in Shangri-La Plaza years ago especially when daughter attended pre-school there (super long time ago).



NEW RESTO ALERT: Woo Galbi

The East Wing of Shangri-La Plaza in Ortigas is now a haven for foodies because it offers a a diverse line-up of "international" restaurants from Filipino, Continental, Japanese, Korean, et al. And having tried the Woo Galbi a few days back before I was invited to join the special lunch for bloggers, I happily confirmed my attendance.

Also, being a faithful koreanovela enthusiast made me appreciate Korean food and my hubby and daughter also learned to appreciate Korean food.


Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila

In response to the online boycott campaign by UNTV against Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, the hotel posted this on their FB Page dated July 15, 2014:
“We do not discriminate against any local or international broadcasting television channel. While we supply several television channels for our guests, the channels we air in the hotel are system-limited, and regularly changed based on several factors, including guest feedback and demand.

We are happy to hear the public’s concerns, and will consider to re-instate the UNTV Channel if this is a request from our hotel guests”.

Saturday Buffet At 100 Revolving Restaurant

After the successful run of the Saturday Lunch Buffet of 100 Revolving Restaurant early this year, the management has decided to continue offering the Saturday Lunch Buffet regularly and with a different theme every week. 

Share A Toblerone and Win A Trip for TWO to Switzerland

Everybody loves chocolates and who wouldn't want to receive some and turn his or her day special? And here's the best part, aside from making someone's day special with Toblerone, you also get a chance to visit Switzerland.



The Best Galbi Tang At Woo Galbi

Perfect for the rainy weather that we are experiencing right now. Also, a hot and very filling soup warms not only the tummy but the heart. :)


FOOD FINDS: Unit 16 Sweets

Daughter and I happen to see the food bazaar in Glorietta last Sunday and espied this stall selling chocolates. Actually, what attracted us are the nice wrappers ... then the flavors!

After playing (or was it watching) Kingdom Hearts last year, daughter's been bugging me about Sea Salt Ice Cream. I guess Sea Salt Chocolate is the next best thing! ;)


Toblerone Snow Top Party

Toblerone Philippines just held the successful Epic Snow Party at the Imperial Ice Bar to welcome its Limited Edition Toblerone Snow Top. Guests was asked to come in white and celebrate the Epic Snow Party while enjoying the music, food, and of course- savoring the delicious Toblerone Snow Top.

FOOD REVIEW: Clara Ole' Sauces

These Clara Ole' Sauces arrived at my doorstep recently and was very excited to whip some pasta except that we don't have any in the pantry- boo hoo hoo! So it took me a couple of days more before I was able to use it.




Kogi Bulgogi Introduces The Ssam Wrap

Hello Ssam, Nice To Meet You !!!

I'm a neophyte when it comes to Kogi Bulgogi although I've already seen its branches at the Lucky Chinatown Mall (LCM) and Promenade in Greenhills. So when I was invited to attend SSam Wrap food tasting, I did not hesitate to send in my RSVP.

Ingredients

Bacon
Mushroom (I used oyster mushrooms), sliced thinly
1 Bell Pepper, minced
Clara Ole Carbonara Sauce

NEW RESTO ALERT: Cafe Naci

Although not a necessarily new restaurant, Cafe Naci found its new home in Greenhills after moving from BGC.



Kani Mango Crunch.  This is a new twist to the famous kani salad and I think they quite pulled it off. 


Adobo Cannelloni. Meat is very tender and I love its cheesy-ness.


Smoked Salmon & Potato Pancakes.


Bacon Liempo w/ Garlic Rice.


Peruvian Chicken Rice.This is my favorite as I love paellas, risottos, fried rice .. well, anything that is rice. ;) A great and satisfying meal. Serves 4-5 depending on one's appetite.


Crispy Fried Chicken. Buttermilk goodness that's very comforting especially on a rainy day.


Chef Ed's Pork Shanks.The meat is so tender and flavorful.


Beef Caldereta Lasagna.


Braised Beef Ossobuco.


Mango Panna Cotta. I think it needs more sugar (I have a sweet tooth!). :D


Mini Pistachio Sansrival. This is definitely one of the best sansrival that I've tasted. Good for sharing, and best paired with a cup of coffee.
