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.

Getting Chocolate-y Crazy with Valor Chocolates

When you've got nothing to do on a weekend and got no one to talk to, you cook a delicious and comforting food that will make you calm, happy and contented - that's what happened to me last weekend. And since everyone was so busy last weekend, got no siblings to fight with and got no friends to hangout with, I ended up cooking a pancake at home and used the Valor Hazelnut Choco Spread that was given to me, while enjoying the bars of Valor Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Mousse with Truffle on the side.

To most of us, Valor Chocolates may not be that new, but to some who don't know yet, Valor Chocolates originated from Spain, and created by Valeriano Lopez Lloret. Defined by a passion to produce the best chocolate, Lloret together with his family of master chocolatiers, set up factory in 1881, and since then, five generations have been at the helm of Valor Chocolates and have managed to transform the brand into an international standard.

The milk is actually an eye-catcher. With its golden packaging and really top-of-the-line appeal to everyone, I wasn't surprised that my nieces loved it! But since I'm a heavy chocolate eater, someone who prefers something that will challenge my palette, the Dark Chocolate Mousse with Truffle was mine - all mine.

Heavenly Brunch at Heaven & Eggs Glorietta

"All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast."
– John Gunther

Serious question, when was the last time you had a fun, filling and relaxing breakfast time with your family or friends? In a city where everyone is so busy, it isn't really surprising to know that you cannot remember it anymore. That's why there are a lot of restaurants now that are offering all-day breakfast sets to let us still enjoy the food that give us smile in the morning.

And last weekend, together with some of my favorite blogger-friends, we re-experienced the heavenly goodness of Heaven & Eggs in Glorietta, Ayala Center, Makati along with some fun stories and friendly jokes.

I honestly cannot remember when was the last time I dine here in Heaven & Eggs but I'm pretty sure that it wasn't that bad. And now that it has a new owner, well, I'm just glad that it wasn't as intimidating as before. Plus, the fact that the dishes now are more diverse - meaning they are now offering Eastern and Western cuisines - I can't wait to go back and indulge on these heavenly goodness again.

It's Raining Ramyeon at Woo Galbi!

If there's one thing I love about this all-day rain, it's definitely the chance of enjoying a hot cup of noodle from my favorite resto in the metropolis. May it be a Chinese, Japanese, Filipino or Korean, as long as its savory, filling and comforting, I'm up for it! And recently, I got to enjoy a truly filling flavorful servings of Korea's ramyeon or ramen from one of my favorite new restos in the city, Woo Galbi at Shangri-La Plaza East Wing.

Sharing delicious and affordable Korean goodness, Woo Galbi keeps on spreading the love to its growing number of patrons through its current promo - which I really, really love - the Slurp On Ramyeon, an unlimited serving of hot Korean ramyeon.
