3 Ways to Enjoy a Good Gin

For us Filipinos, every time we heard of the word "gin", it never fails to give us the idea of "tambays" drinking this old-as-time drink, clear as water but hit someone hard as a rock.


My idea of gin was changed when I met Hendrick's brand ambassador, Zachary Connor de Git, over dinner a few days back. Hendrick's Gin brought him here in the Philippines to see what's in our bars and to share his expertise to some spots around the metro. He started sharing his awesome knowledge about gins at Raffles Hotel, Makati, where we had a fun dinner with the usual set of dishes with the unusual set of foodies and gin masters.


It was really a casual dinner, but since Zachary prepared some drinks from everyone - with Hendrick's in it - well, our night turned out to be informative too, which taught us a lot about the brand and how it makes its world-renowned flavor.

Would you believe that Hendrick's is  made of cucumber and rose petal essences? If you've had Hendrick's before, you'll recognize the refreshing taste of it with floral aroma captivating not only your sense of smell but also your sixth sense.

And now, I'm glad to share to everyone these three ways to enjoy your gin - your Hendrick's Gin.

Tokyo Joe: A Fusion Made to Last

While everyone is going gaga over some franchised restaurant from other countries, here in Cubao, Quezon City, despite of its imported-sounding name, a new spot just opened and is now ready to offer fairly affordable and delicious Japanese favorites - Tokyo Joe.


Last October 11, I was invited to take part on the opening of this newest place in Cubao that you wouldn't believe started sharing its delectable meals in the Queen City of the South, Cebu. A brand that brought us Rai Rai Ken, Tokyo Joe is now here in Manila and ready to share its amazing selection of Japanese favorites starting with its California Maki, Kani Salad, Ramen, Gyoza and a whole lot more.


Mr. Joey Garcia, President and Owner of Tokyo Joe, welcomed and thanked everyone for coming to the opening of his latest project. He shared that having Tokyo Joe under the Rai Rai Ken umbrella would mean so much to their company as this one caters to every Pinoys craving for delicious and affordable Japanese dishes.

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!

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.
