Beautiful Friendship over Seafood Island’s Sinuglaw Boodle

Friendship is like a good food. It has a nice combination of taste, full of colors that attract positivity in life and more importantly, it is something that money can’t equate to. I love having good food around just like having a good friend, who you can laugh with and spend the day in a very nice way.

Last weekend, I had a wonderful time spending some BFF moments with my good friend, Maan Pamaran, in one of the most convenient boutique hotels in the metro. A perfect break from our busy lives, the two us had an amazing “girly” pampering in the south through the wonderful amenities of our hotel and its neighborhood. And though the hotel has its own quaint and beautiful restaurant, we chose to spend our dinner at a nearby mall to see how convenient it is to be here in the south and to somehow continue my quest in discovering the southern part of Manila.

With all our excitement and hunger, our feet brought us to Blackbeard Seafood Island. A fun, quirky and adventurous dining place located at the 2nd Level of Alabang Town Center. This is actually not my first time here, but since, we’re so hungry and we couldn’t think of any dining area that serves really good food in large and generous servings, we went in and find a perfect spot where we could just talk, relax and eat – A LOT.

Mesclun Bistro: Your Mix of Wonderful Delights at Linden Suites

Aside from its convenient location, heart-warming accommodation and superb facilities and amenities, The Linden Suites in Ortigas, Pasig City, also takes pride of housing one of the classiest and comforting restaurants in the metro, Mesclun. A restaurant headed by Chef Katrina Arce Kuhn-Alcantara, Mesclun is your kitchen-dining area away from home.

Taking its name from the old Occitane for “mixture” or in popular culture, refers to a mixed greens, Mesclun fires up the kitchen of The Linden Suites sharing new and unique dishes while balancing the experience with its classy yet comfortable interior.

During my weekend stay at The Linden Suites, Mesclun served as my life-savior and life-savor as I indulged on to their mouthwatering dishes that are set to whet one’s appetite. Prices from this restaurant may be a little but high, but I can assure you that with the comfort, style and serving size that they provide to their guests, staying here over some lunch or dinner while staying at the comfort of The Linden Suites is an experience one should have.

Mesclun dishes vary from contemporary Filipino favorites to Western – mostly European – cuisines that are prepared gourmet style. Apart from Mesclun, Chef Katrina is also the mastermind behind Chuck’s Deli - an American-style super-sandwich and burger shop boasting of homemade breads and cold cuts; and Paulene Chocolat Suisses - a premium line of made-to-order chocolate confections.

My Korean Consolation

Braving the metro's traffic is probably one of the craziest thing I did a few days back. I didn't know what comes into my mind that day to take the MRT, and join the commuting public of the eastern part of the metro as they hurried back home. I found myself lost at Shaw Boulevard until my phone beeps with a notification stating that my Uber driver is about to pick me.

I could just take a ride back home, but my tummy mumbles in hungers asking for some good dinner. It was already 8 p.m. then - a 2 hour travel time from SM Mall of Asia, I reminded myself. So, instead of asking the driver to take me home, I told him to bring me to Estancia Mall in Capitol Commons, where my friends are waiting for me.

With my hunger that night, I couldn't wait for more hours to eat dinner, good thing I Am Kim, a fun quirky Korean restaurant at the lower level of Estancia Mall offers a good Bibimbap in a quick span of time.

Say Hello to Ostrich Burger!

There are only three things that I'm looking for a burger - one, must have a nice bun; two, must have a tender, juicy and nicely cooked patty; and three, must fresh veggies and cheese for additional crunch and flavor. Well, I thought that's all I ever wanted for a burger until I tasted The Ostrich Farm's Ostrich Burger.

Nowadays, people are continuously craving for good burger. But unlike before, most of us are gearing towards having a gourmet one that offers healthier option - an option that opens an opportunity to friends-entrepreneurs Frances and husband-and-wife Kristine and Jaime to introduce ostrich burger.

A few days back, I had an eye-opening dinner with Ms. Frances and Ms. Kristine about the goodness of ostrich meat and how wonderful it can be a substitute to our well-loved beef burger.

Goodbye Puto-Dinuguan, Hello Cheese Roll-Dinuguan

One of the prominent food combinations in the Filipino food fare that I seriously love is this puto (rice cake) and diniguan (pork blood stew). The combination of salty and sour-y flavor of dinuguan goes perfectly smooth with the sweet and fluffy flavor of puto. But last weekend, as I revisited one of Manila’s pride, The Aristocrat Restaurant in Malate, I discovered a whole new world of Pinoy Merienda that brought my love to our own dishes to a new level.

Famous from its home-cooked Pinoy dishes, including tasty barbecues, the Aristocrat Restaurant is gaining more popularity with the creation of their amazing and tummy-filling Pinoy Merienda that are set to whet one's appetite at a pocket-friendly.

Just when you thought that San Juan City is all about bargain shops and Chinese and Filipino restaurants, here comes a coffee shop that will take your coffee experience a notch higher with its modern take on our favorite breakfast sets through Café Sansó while showcasing the artistic skills of Juvenal Sansó of Sansó Museum.

In line with the unique appeal of Sansó Museum, Café Sansó offers a satisfying take on renowned Spanish Cuisine by sharing its best of the best from ensaladas, sandwiches, pastas, desserts, cold cuts and beverages.

When I visited Café Sansó a few days ago, I was so lucky that there were only a few couples inside the place, who I assume are also first-timers here. I met the accommodating staff who shared their menu and told me some tidbits about the place.

Sweet Mother's Day at SM Mall of Asia

If there's one gift that you would want to give to the most important woman in your life today - aside from love, love, love - what would it be and why? If you'd ask me, I would like to give my mom more sweetness - something that would leave a good smile on her face and made her feel how much we love her.

This Mother's Day, we have a million and one ways to show to our super moms how thankful we are to have them in our lives. May it be through flowers, chocolates, greeting cards or just a simple kiss on her cheeks, I know that you wouldn't let this day pass without letting her feel that we care for them; that they are the most important woman in our lives; that we love them so dearly that we can't afford to loose them.

I know my mom very well. Spending my entire existence by her side, I know what would make her so happy. Do you know what it is? Yep, yep, yep - FOOD. My mom who knows how to cook well, has a huge love for food too, next to us, her sons and daughter. Hehe. And that one food that really sweeps off her feet - DESSERTS.

Good thing, at SM Mall of Asia, most of its food stores have a sweet offering to all moms this Mothers' Day weekend that moms, dads and children would surely love and enjoy.
