Jolly University 2015 Goes To UST

Last Tuesday, Jolly University held a cooking competition for three teams at the University of Santo Tomas (UST). The winning team will then join the Jolly Boot Camp and eventually compete with the other winning teams from other colleges and universities in Metro Manila.



Kamuning Bakery

I've been curious about Kamuning Bakery for a very long time but haven't really visited the place until last week when I joined an unplanned food crawl in Quezon City with fellow bloggers. Actually, I almost didn't make it because of some errands. Luckily, I was able to rendezvous with the group and even met Mr. Wilson Flores of Kamuning Bakery.



All-Day Breakfast At Figaro

It was an unplanned foodcrawl in Quezon City with some bloggers and since I have some free time before I fetch my daughter from school, I happily joined the foodcrawlers. First stop was Figaro along Tomas Morato.

Figaro's one of the most established local coffeshop in Manila and its been around for two decades. Of course, they serve the best coffee (according to my coffee-crazed husband). But Figaro has more to offer than just coffee- they also have pasta, pizza and sandwiches, pastries, and the All-Day Breakfast.

Sunday Family Brunch At The Crimson Hotel

For us Filipinos, Sundays are best spent with the family. We usually eat lunches together and go to the mall to watch movies or do some shopping. Sundays are also the day wherein it just feel so right to wake up late.

So every Sunday of the month, indulge in a brunch-feast with the whole family at Crimson Hotel Filinvest in Filinvest City, Alabang. Aside from the usual brunch, the hotel also considered the kids (and kids-at-heart) when they thought of the special kiddie corner that features tons of fun (and games) and a special buffet treats that's guaranteed to satisfy even the picky-eaters.

Enjoy The Choco-goodness Of McVities

The whole world has been enjoying McVitie’s Digestive on so many occasions. From being the UK’s favorite tea time snack to serving royalty with their most delectable cake creations during memorable celebrations, McVitie’s has widened its range of digestives that everyone can enjoy – from the health buffs to those with the sweetest tooth.

The original McVitie’s Digestive has become the perfect match for tea and become more than just a tea time snack.  Made from the blend of wheat and Goodness of whole meal flour, this favorite biscuit has become a base in order to create more delectable gastronomic creations, such as a cheesecake.


CEBU: The Suite Room

The Suite Room is my nicest discovery when I visited Cebu last year. Thanks to my friend who celebrated her nth birthday dinner here. If you are familiar with Casa Verde (haven't been there yet), this restaurant is also owned/managed by the same group.

Jolly University In Letran College

On its second year, the Jolly University Tour this 2015 goes to 15 competing schools and one of them is Letran College in the walled city of Intramuros. Colegio de San Juan de Letran is quite a popular school and its been around for ages. Think Jose Rizal.


Duck & Buvette

Duck & Buvette is barely a year-old but since it opened last June 2014, it has gained quite a huge followers from foodies and non-foodies. And for those who love Shangri-La Plaza, the restaurant may be new but the owners and staff are still the same when they used to operate Cafe Provencale.



Despedida Dinner At Peking Garden

I've had great memories at Peking Garden especially when most of our elders were still around. But this time around, my Dutch uncle was the one who invited us for a despedida dinner. He and my aunt arrived early January and are flying back to Holland in a few days.

We reserved two tables, one for the kids and one for the "matakaws."

CEBU: Moshi Moshi Yakiniku

I love restaurants where you grill your own food. I mean, its fun and you and your companions have a lot of cooking tips to talk about as you cook your food.

Moshi Moshi Yakiniku was introduced to me by my friend when I went to Cebu several months back. She said that her kids love the restaurant.


SM City Bicutan Foodcourt Choices

The foodcourt choices at SM City Bicutan is a nice mix of Italian, Korean, and Filipino favorites. Also, they serve reasonably priced and delicious meals.

I really can't recall when Sbarro opened but this Italian restaurant has been around for more than a decade. They serve the best white cheese pizza and penne pasta. Kimbob is relatively new but ever since our tv stations got invaded with KDramas, we all seem to adapt to Korean food. They serve bibimbap and other Korean meals. As for Kain-Kainan, the resto serves mouthwatering Filipino dishes.


Pancake House Classic Favorites

Pancake House is one of those restaurants that's been around for ages. It serves not only pancakes but other comfort food as well.

FOOD FINDS: Premium Donuts by Dunkin Donuts

It was a nice Monday morning and I was early for my event which was somewhere in the south. Alas, I must've missed the important announcement and ended up farther than where I'm supposed to be. Oh well- haha. Luckily, the day was not really that hot, otherwise, I would've gone home or visited my cousins which happens to live a few minutes away from where I'm supposed to be.


NEW RESTO ALERT: Vikings SM BF

I've been a fan of Vikings Buffet ever since they opened their first restaurant near Mall of Asia. The restaurant doesn't really have crazy lines back then but the food has been consistently good. So when I got an email invitation from Vikings SM BF to try out their newly opened branch down south, I didn't think twice about it.

So here's my first #eatlikeaviking plate: callos, baked oyster, pizza, and cheese.
