Chili's shares "More Life' - our Way!

Chili's is indeed unstoppable in sharing the most wonderful Southwestern dishes they could create. And if you think they haven't thought of infusing some Filipino flavor to their latest dishes, I guess you haven't experienced the Chili's newest offerings. I bet, you'll enjoy Chili's more - your way!

Last week, I had a chance to revisit one of my favorite dining places in the metro - Chili's. If you are on a budget but you wanna have a great time, drinking and snacking some food, Chili's is really the place to be. With their wide array of enjoyable drinks and cocktails, they have something to match with your craving, which is also offered through their colorful selection of dishes.

On my visit, I've tried Chili's three new dishes - the Fried Quesadilla Bites, Bacon & Cheddar Steak and the Parmesan Chicken or Tilapia. Told you, get ready for some American-Southwestern-Filipino food infusion.

La Paz Batchoy: Ted's, Netongs and Deco's

Iloilo will always be a favorite city of mine. Its rich history that is well-kept and proud, traditions that spell colors and love, and food that are just wonderful and shares the goodness of Ilonggos. And as I revisit this favorite city of mine a few months back, I indulged on to an amazing food trip that spells hot, flavorful and authentic Ilonggo dish we all love, the La Paz Batchoy!

But unlike before, I enjoyed Iloilo's tastiest dish the different way - a comparative way, actually. For this food trip, I went around the city eating three of the most well-known La Paz Batchoy noodles. I was in Iloilo for four days, so as not to get myself so overwhelmed with this Iloilo's goodness, I just had one La Batchoy noodle a day.

On my first day, as soon as I landed, I first went to Ted's Oldtimer La Paz Batchoy, which is located at SM City Iloilo. If you are commuting around town or if you are coming from the airport via shuttle services, Ted's is really a good starter to stuff your tummy with Iloilo goodness.

A Reunion at Caterings by Q Bistro

If you love something and you badly miss having it, no matter how far it may be; in my case, no matter how busy I am, if I miss having it and I'm dying to have it, I'll risk everything just to have it. Gets?

Well, it's nothing too serious - it's just  my favorite Roast Beef from Q Bistro, which has a new nest at Unit 56C & 56D East Capitol Drive, Kapitoloyo, Pasig City. And yes, finally, I got to visit this favorite resto of mine last Sunday with my family, who for the first time, met my favorite chef in town, Chef Mia K. Catipay!

Designed to satisfy one's desire for beauty, elegance and comfort, I must say that this new nest of Q Bistro is one lovely spot fit for a family or a group of friends who are looking for a nice place to chill out. Ready to fill one's eyes and stomach with artistically chosen designs and appetizing dishes, our Sunday brunch here started with amazement to the decors well put by the Q Bistro team.

With thousand of new and different food establishments in and outside the metropolis, I wouldn't be shocked to know how our taste becomes more discriminating and tends to look for something better. But come to think of it, there are some old place that needs revisiting - for all we know, they have new dishes ready to fill our tummies and bring back the happiness we once love from them.

A Whole New Greenwich Pizzeria!

Great news! Aside from their sumptuous and really comforting dishes - this includes the tastiest Greenwich Lasagna Supreme - one of the country's leading pizza chain is happy to announce and to welcome everyone to their newest "hangout" spot, the Greenwich Pizzeria in SM North EDSA.

Sharing a mid-century. fresh and modern pizza house, Greenwich Pizzeria is opened to the public just this summer to give their regular patrons a unique dining experience suited to their impeccable taste. Aiming to transport every guest to this "whole new world" kind of thing, Greenwich Pizzeria completes the experience with its interior reminiscent of a familiar and homey feel.

I must say that the new look is so creative that it made me realize that every corner is Instagram-friendly. Though I cannot remember if the place offers free Wi-Fi then, but having a free connection, I guess would give justice to beauty of the place.

Malbec World Day 2014

It may not be the biggest wine event in the world now, but soon, I'm pretty sure that Malbec World Day will conquer the world and make a noise that deserves to receive some attention and respect.

Last April 24, I spent a night enjoying and discovering Argentina, specifically it's region Mendoza, through a showcase of Argentine wines popularly known as Malbec. Hosted by the Argentine Embassy in the Philippines, Malbec World Day 2014 in Manila took place at the Top of Citi in Makati City.

A number of wine enthusiasts and sommeliers filled the venue along with the stalls of wine cellars from Metro Manila that offers the best of Argentina, when it comes to wines. If I'm not mistaken there were about 10-20 stalls that night that shared the best of Argentine wine - including sparkling, white and red.

A Taste of S.O.U.L. in La Union

While some of you are probably preparing to bid goodbye to your uber fun summer vacation at the country's Summer Capital, here I am sharing one more food spot that I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy and will leave a smile on your faces just before you go back to your normal lives.

Going down via the long and sometimes skull racking zigzag road of the Mountain Province  to the flatland of La Union is one of the many challenges every traveler has to face just before reaching the flat and straight road of North Luzon Express (NLEX). I, myself, is not a fan of those zigzag roads, especially if I am coming from Baguio City. Other than the fact that it's so hard to say goodbye to the Pine City, the zigzag road from Baguio to La Union is just so hard to tolerate. It sickening and deafening at the same time.

But did you know that there's a better way to deal with this not-so-good experience? Let's just say that there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and in this case, the pot of gold is represented by S.O.U.L Cafe or the Spice of Urban Life at Camp One, Rosario, La Union.
