Figaro of the North

Whether it is in the South or, in this case, North, there's always something about Figaro Coffee that we'll never get tired of having, right? It's purely Filipino approach to the oldest drink is what makes it more irresistible. And now that it opens it space at Trinoma, there are more reasons to love the brand over and over again. 

Hello there! Welcome to the Figaro of the North!


A few days back, my sister and I spent a relaxing Sunday at the newest kiosk of Figaro in Trinoma, Quezon City. With enough space to serve about a dozen of coffee drinkers, this place served as our nest after our shopping craze in the mall. 


Despite of being newly opened, it was so nice to know that they offer their delicious meals here that are just as good as its looks.

Finding the "Perfect Match"

While some restaurants are busy preparing for their wine pairing sessions, a gastro pub in Bonifacio Global City is making a trend that will make beer drinkers happy. The Perfect Pint, located at the Crossroads, BGC, launches a unique dining experience that shares wonderful dishes that go well with crafted beers - "The Perfect Match."


Forget about sisig, forget about pizza, forget about barbecue. Because here at The Perfect Pint, those are not the dishes that go well with their crafted beer. Actually, none of those traditional Filipino favorites could be encountered in this amazing and filling adventure made possible by the metro's budding chefs, brewmasters and food editors.

Band of Brewmasters

Four dishes and four different crafted beers prepared by the talented chefs, brewmasters and food editors, all worth of an hour or two of dining experience and some Php599.00, The Perfect Pint's The Perfect Match started last October 20 and will last until November 13, with different battle themes every week.

My Unbelievable Project Pie Experience

"If I were you, I'll have half of Number 1 and half of Number 2."

Number 1 and Number 2 Pizza

When I asked him what a first-timer like me should have from Project Pie, these are the words that came from the man who is behind all of these pizza building experiences that we are having now right here in Manila, Mr. James Markham.


We may always get the food that we want, we may always have that perfect seat where we can enjoy these food, but it is not everyday that you'll run into the restaurant's owner, chat with him and give you great advises on how to enjoy the meals that he created for everyone.

This is my unbelievable Project Pie experience!

With the tremendous amount that each of us has to spend in travelling around the city, it is no wonder more and more companies, specifically food establishments, are gearing towards offering the same kind of experience in their food delivery system or better yet towards the improvement of their delivery system.

A Taste of the Highlands

There are days that we are just too lazy to go out, too lazy to cook food and to some extent too lazy to take a bath - well, I've been there and done that. But recently, due to rains and flooded areas, I got too lazy to get some decent food again, so instead of going out, I cooked myself some comfort food through the help of Highlands Premium Corned Beef.


Rain is really killing my social life. When you least expect it, the rain is so unstoppable that we don't have a choice but to stay at home and bore ourselves to death. Gladly, this time, my love for food kicked in that I picked up my ass and started whipping some nice comfort food for me and for my family.


When Highlands Corned Beef entered the Philippine market a few years ago, I know that they'll have a hard time penetrating the market. With some other brands that have been there and proven their quality, Highlands has some challenges to face, sadly for those other brands, Highland has this unique flavor and style that are just captivating and comforting at the same time.

Known for its great line-up of hole-in-the-wall food stations, Maginhawa is gearing up towards more unique and almost out-of-this-world food ideas that are sure to catch more attention and gather more foodies especially this coming weekend.

It is through this activity that I realized how lucky these individuals, families and friends living around the area are - everything is simply amazing and irresistible!

A Dozen of Goodness at Twelve Cupcakes, SM Mall of Asia

Simple, fluffy and fresh - nothing too fancy, nor too sweet and these are the things that I love about Twelve Cupcakes. And if you think you only have twelve flavors to choose from, well, be happy because there are more!


Originally from Singapore, and founded by Singapore celebrity couple Daniel and Jaime Teo, Twelve Cupcakes opened its door in July of 2011 at United Square, Singapore. Since then, the handmade goodies of the power couple of Singapore has established 12 outlets in shopping malls across their country, and over 3 million Twelve Cupcakes' cupcakes have been sold.


Here in the Philippines, Twelve Cupcakes' cupcakes are now available in four malls namely SM City BF in Paranaque, Century City Mall in Makati, Lucky Chinatown Mall in Manila and SM Mall of Asia in Pasay.

Afternoon Indulgence at The Shrimp Shack

Shrimp lovers, here's a place where you can indulge and forget how expensive it is to try and enjoy shrimp dishes. No frills, no gimmick, just pure shrimp-y goodness that will sure fill you up while keeping you pocket safe and sound - The Shrimp Shack!

Garlic Shrimp Scampi - Php245.00

With stores at Market! Market!, Taguig, SM Mall of Asia and Robinson's Place Manila, Shrimp Shack is another concept from the team that brought us The Old Spaghetti House. Boasting with bright, summer-y and beach-like ambiance, Shrimp Shack is contrary to the conservative and rusty ambiance of The Old Spaghetti House.


On my first ever visit at their store in Market! Market!, Taguig, despite of the limited space, this new restaurant is oozing with goodness starting off with their appetizers that are just perfect for sharing. The Tomato-Cheese Fondue with Nachos spells comfort food for me. The inviting aroma and the balance sweet and salty flavor of the fondue makes this dish as good starter.

A Night with Murray and D'Vine

I seldom have a night-out with my friends lately but when I do I make sure that it is memorable - like this one. And when I and my friends meet, we make sure that aside from juicy stories, our night is also filled with delicious food and soothing cocktails - like these from Murray and D'Vine of Serendra.

Imported Baby Back Ribs - Php465.00 (half)

Located at the very heart of Serendra in Bonifacio Global City, which is basically known for its classy residential buildings, Murray and D'Vine is famous for its pub-like bar mostly visited by expats. Offering local and imported beer and wine, this place takes pride on its delicious meals that are made fit for drinking beer or wine.

Classic Onion Rings - Php165.00

The place may be a bit intimidating, but once you see their menu, I bet that you'll find how cozy and inviting this place to ordinary guests. From their Pica-Pica selections to their sliders and best sellers that are sure to fill one up, I find the prices reasonable too given Murray and D'Vine is a bar-like place.

Melting with the La Piadina's Heart & Soul

When speaking of delicious and affordable "Food Court" food, I bet mall rats would have La Piadina on top of their lists. With its heartwarming and almost authentic Italian look and flavor, Filipino's love for Italian food was hyped up even more when Chef Giorgio Matera, La Piadina's heart and soul - opened its first store at the food court of Glorietta in Ayala Center, Makati City.


T'was 12 years ago when our favorite Italian dishes were launched in a hole-in-a-wall concept at Glorietta's food court, Food Choices. Featuring new and exciting menu from four select regions in Italy - Puglia, Emilia Romagna, Piemonte and Toscana - La Piadina's Chef Giorgio shares his greatness in cooking Italian dishes together with his wife, who by the way love our country so much.

Fueled by his passion for Italian food, he took the challenge of venturing into the fast food business, believing that food whether expensive or inexpensive, fine, casual or fast food must always be fresh and of the best quality.
