McRib at McDonalds Philippines #McRibCraving Satisfied! @McDo_PH

"So, you haven't tried McRib yet? I believe it's already available at all branches of McDonalds Philippines." Says my McRib-loving friend preceded by that kind of look as one would stare on a gloomy sky where a rainbow has recently been - with such pity and regret.

As a self-confessed pork-loving individual, I understand such frustration. But in fairness to my part, this famed sandwich from Mickey D's has always been elusive. Popping on the menu when I least expect it, then vanishing away in a heartbeat like a rockstar taking a break from the limelight much to the dismay of its cult following.

So yes, I have not tried McRib yet until recently when McDonalds Philippines announced McRib's availability here in our country, although for a limited time only. It's available at all McDo PH branches nationwide except in Cotabato (where majority of people I believe do not eat pork), so no reason to miss the chance to finally try it and enjoy its promised goodness while it last.

Roots and Herbs Coffee Shop: That Malunggay Coffee Frappé! [Antipolo Food Trip Series]

Located just by the entrance of Mission Hills Subdivision in Antipolo City, Roots and Herbs Coffee is the nearest coffee shop in my house. Most Restaurants and Coffee Shops in Antipolo City are located either at the Sumulong Highway overlooking area or in Antipolo Town Proper (or Bayan, as locals call it). Rarely can one encounter commercial food establishments operating in the upper part of the town. 

Roots and Herbs Coffee Shop which boasts of serving healthy good quality coffee and dishes is one of the few.

I first heard of Roots and Herbs Coffee when I was still living in Manila. They have a branch somewhere in Quezon City and some of my friends swear by the goodness of their frappe including the interesting Malunggay/Moringa Frappé. I never really had a chance to visit any of their branch in Manila. Little did I know, the opportunity will present itself when I'm already here in Antipolo.

What's New at The Super Bowl of China

Yesterday we visited the Super Bowl of China located at the Atrium of SM Megamall. Together with some of Manila Food Bloggers and some friends at media, we checked out what's new at the Super Bowl. I was under the impression that there will be new Chinese cuisine on the menu they will be launching, little did I know, there will be plenty of new things unfolding.

Super Bowl of China has been known for its affordable and quality Chinese dishes. Way back, Super Bowl was one of those Chinese restaurants that my family and I would often go to. As the restaurant scene in Manila boom, my affinity for Super Bowl took a back seat for a while because there are plenty new more restaurants to try.

Then suddenly, I was reminded that this old time favorite Chinese restaurant is still well worth a visit. As a proof that Super Bow of China is still on top of it game, they recently made a revamp to its SM Megamall branch. From the store interior to the food attendants uniform up to several items on the menu, change for the better is the name of the game. This change will soon roll out to all Super Bowl of China branches in the Philippines such as at SM Mall of Asia, Festival Mall in Alabang, the the soon to open branch at Robinsons Place Manila.

Marison's Filipino Restaurant in Antipolo City [Antipolo Food Trip Series]

I was not really planning to visit Marison’s Restaurant in Antipolo that day.  Not that particular day at least. The original plan was to check out the coffee shop near home after some grocery shopping at the newly opened Rustan’s Supermarket at The Village Center. After all, we just had a lunch at home.

I was dead set on just getting my caffeine fix until my mother blurted out that she’s craving for Kare-Kare. I can’t really say No to my mother’s craving since such things rarely happen. I was thinking of restaurant nearby I know that serves the dish when my father reminded me of Marison’s, located on the second floor of The Village Center.

Since it’s advertised as a Filipino restaurant, it would be impossible that they don’t serve Kare-Kare so headed upstairs after loading our grocery bags in the car. True enough, the menu board standing by the entrance of Marison’s shows several Filipino dishes including the dish we’d hoped to find.

Indulgence by Irene's New Cheesecake Flavors

Orange Bourbon, Coffee and Baileys, Matcha, Corn, and Earl Grey are the new cheesecake flavors of Indulgence by Irene. You probably heard about these latest creative spin on Irene's cheesecakes through some of our favorite Manila Food Bloggers, and just like them, I am a fan.

And if it is not obvious enough, let's set the record here and say that I have always been a fan since day one. To this day, their Quezo de Bola Cheesecake still rocks my world, while all the other flavors still makes me giddy like a child in a candy store. Now that Indulgence by Irene released its new line of cheesecake flavors, I expect nothing less.

The previous cheesecake variants of Irene features flavors that are somewhat common but done with distinct flair known for Indulgence by Irene making it familiar yet, different in a good way at the same time. The new creations however features what I would like to think as more mature and sophisticated in a sense.

Tim Ho Wan Manila, Philippines: My Pork Buns Heaven!

Staring at the famed Baked Pork Buns of the world famous Tim Ho Wan is like seeing chubby cheeks of cute fatty cherubims. It was only recently that I got to visit Tim Ho Wan at SM Megamall Fashion Hall. The blissful experience of trying something for the first time made me not regret passing off the chance to dine at Tim Ho Wan way before it opened its first branch in the Philippines.

Tim Ho Wan’s Baked Pork Buns stole my heart away.

I honestly never thought that I will visit Tim Ho Wan sometime soon since although it already opened three branches here in Manila, lines are still quite long. But then again, as with most things in life, a heart wants what a heart wants. It’s high time to get my hands on those well-raved buns.

Khayil Bakeshop and Café Restaurant in Antipolo City [Antipolo Food Trip Series]

I’m on a roll with my Antipolo Food Trip Blog Series wherein I write about Restaurants, Cafes, and Food Places in Antipolo City (Rizal Province) that piqued my interest.  This time it’s all about Khayil Bakeshop and Café. Located along Circumferential Road, Khayil started as a specialty bakeshop that offers gourmet cupcakes, cinnabons, and customized cakes until they expanded into a restaurant café.

Their original shop was located along M.L. Quezon Extension in front of the now defunct Puregold JR at Mille Luce Village Town Center, (replaced by the newly opened Rustan’s Supermarket Antipolo.)  From their small shop, Khayil Bakeshop and Café garnered several patrons who love their products.

While it is safe to say that continuous patronage of people prompted Khayil for an expansion, the reason, I learned, was way beyond their will to prosper.  That’s what makes Khayil dear to me.

Pizza Hut's New Hand Stretched Pizza and Pizza Crust Glaze #StretchPa

Pizza Hut, one of the leading pizza fast food chain in the Philippines introduces its new spin on their well-loved pizza, the New Pizza Hut Hand Stretched Pizza alongside the new Pizza Crust Innovation. Pizza Hut lovers like myself can now enjoy a thinner and lighter pizza crust filled with flavors brought about by the crust glaze coating the edge.

In a nutshell, Pizza Hut Hand Stretched Pizza sits somewhere in between their usual pan pizza and thin crust pizza. Lighter but heftier at the same time. What makes it all the more delicious is the crust glaze that adds texture and flavor for full blown pizza enjoyment.
