Starbucks Summer Specials: Midnight Mocha and Tea-ramisu Frappuccino

Starbucks welcomes the summer season with two specially created frappuccino blended beverage from April 11 to June 4, 2018- Tea-ramisu and Midnight Mocha Frappuccino. These two blended drinks will surely make you #GetTheFeels of summer.


Tea-ramisu Frappuccino is a delightful blend of creamy cheesecake milk with Japanese Matcha and topped with whipped cream and green tea cookie bits. This sublime-tasting drink is the perfect blended beverage when you need that extra energy summer boost. Quite refreshing and makes me think of fluffy cheesecake.


On the other hand, Midnight Mocha Frappuccino has a more intense flavor blended from rich, bittersweet black cocoa powder, coffee, java chipped with whipped cream and cocoa powder. The combination of flavors makes it velvety and truly wakes up the senses. I also detect a hint of berries that makes this drink utterly delicious.


Aside from the summer blended beverage, Starbucks also has some yummy baked goodies that greatly compliments summer. Here are my two favorites:  The Chocolate Babka (non-Kosher) which has its origins from Eastern Europe. This is a soft and chocolatey sweet bread filled with Belgian chocolate. Best eaten warm so that you can savor the oozing chocolate.


And the Pistachio Dome which is actually a white chocolate mousse with creamy pistachio, with layers of vanilla and chocolate cake topped with whipped cream and pistachio nuts. Yummy!


And because its summer, Columbia Huila is the highlighted Starbucks Single Origin series. This coffee has some fruity notes and milky chocolate sweetness.


Of course, summer is not complete without some Starbucks merch that comes mostly in lovely pastel colors.

    2. No, keto is a no sugar diet. We can take anything subbed with stevia or equal gold or erythirol though. :)

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
