A new organic food haven right in the heart of Mandaluyong City, Pioneer Street Market or Pioneer St. Market boasts for its artisinal image that is completed with a wide variety of fresh produce and unique pieces that will complete your "weekend" market hunting.


A wide lot located right beside HMR Store in Pioneer St., Mandaluyong City, Pioneet St. Market opens its doors last month to a number of food concessionaires that are eager to offer unique and must-have fresh and freshly made food items to set a healthier and more exciting options to foodies and non-foodies alike.

A very quite spot, which is mostly surrounded by offices and warehouses, Pioneer St. Market offers a breather to working employees around the area as well as a wonderful food oasis for food hunters who wanna try something healthy but are still very affordable and filling.

A Filipino-Scottish Wedding Meant to be Devoured

An unfamiliar music was playing as I entered the hall. It wasn't a wedding, but I can sense some love in the air. Lights were dimmed, and series of video clips were being projected in one of the vacant walls of the room. The video was dramatic but appealing, and a large table - very large, actually, that could seat 30 people all together - was placed at the center of the room, adorned with certain uniqueness but wasn't intimidating at all. There was a bit sense of awkwardness in the air at first, but when everyone got to know one another, the  crisp air was filled with laughter and cheers - a sound meant to bind people together to enjoy a special occasion.


I dunno what has gotten in to my mind to be in an event like this. I don't usually get invites for this kind of sophisticated events, so every time I got into one, bet I'm pretty sure that people around me would feel the inconvenience in the way I move, in the way I talk. I'm just glad that I'm look quite well to be here.


Held at Commissary in White Space Events Place in Makati, along with a number of writers from different glossies, newspapers and popular websites, your Lafanggero was invited to a night of whisky-lechon degustation dinner with Glenfiddich's Southeast Asia brand ambassador Mr. Matthew Fergusson-Stewart.

Chinese New Year at Manila Pavilion Hotel

We may be in the Philippines, and some of us may hate the Chinese for taking some of our precious islands, but when Chinese New Year hits the world, there's definitely one big and colorful celebration in every little Chinatown in the world to usher this new beginning.


And last Chinese New Year, February 19, since the government finally declared it as a special non-working holiday in the whole country, I went out to somehow celebrate this festive day with some friends. Guess where our feet took us? Yep, to the newly renovated Manila Pavilion Hotel!


This Chinese New Year, Manila Pavilion Hotel highlighted the sounding and colorful festivity of our fellow Filipino-Chinese through an Oriental buffet that features the most amazing and filling dishes of our Chinese friends.

Capitol Commons: A New Foodie Place to Check Out

While most of you are busy dining at some fancy restaurant in Makati or Bonifacio Global City or ever in Tomas Morato, a new budding place located in Pasig City is about to take the foodie scene by surprise. An old property turned in a lush green foodie space with some shopping area to die for, Capitol Commons brings Urban Flavors to give foodies a bite of what's in store here.


The recent Holiday bulge may still be felt in your tummy until now, but did you know that before everyone feasted on their sumptuous home-cooked meals, this Lafanggero has been filling his tummy weeks before Christmas. If you see me and thinks that I'm some dark Santa Claus or Snowman, blame it to Urban Flavors who shared nothing but the best of their 20 restaurants - some are newly opened, while others are opening soon.


For only Php500.00, I enjoyed 20 wonderfully crafted dishes and drinks at this gastronomic adventure Capitol Commons has prepared for everyone. By the way, Urban Flavors was held inside Estancia, the newest shopping and dinning mall in town, which is inside the Capitol Commons property.
