Goodbye Puto-Dinuguan, Hello Cheese Roll-Dinuguan

One of the prominent food combinations in the Filipino food fare that I seriously love is this puto (rice cake) and diniguan (pork blood stew). The combination of salty and sour-y flavor of dinuguan goes perfectly smooth with the sweet and fluffy flavor of puto. But last weekend, as I revisited one of Manila’s pride, The Aristocrat Restaurant in Malate, I discovered a whole new world of Pinoy Merienda that brought my love to our own dishes to a new level.

Famous from its home-cooked Pinoy dishes, including tasty barbecues, the Aristocrat Restaurant is gaining more popularity with the creation of their amazing and tummy-filling Pinoy Merienda that are set to whet one's appetite at a pocket-friendly.

Café Sansó: My Latest Discovery in San Juan City

Just when you thought that San Juan City is all about bargain shops and Chinese and Filipino restaurants, here comes a coffee shop that will take your coffee experience a notch higher with its modern take on our favorite breakfast sets through Café Sansó while showcasing the artistic skills of Juvenal Sansó of Sansó Museum.

Located at 32 V. Cruz Street, San Juan City, Café Sansó recently opens its doors at the very quiet district Little Baguio to offer colorful and delectable treats that are very close to Filipino hearts – Spanish Cuisine. In line with the unique appeal of Sansó Museum, Café Sansó offers a satisfying take on renowned Spanish Cuisine by sharing its best of the best from ensaladas, sandwiches, pastas, desserts, cold cuts and beverages.

When I visited Café Sansó a few days ago, I was so lucky that there were only a few couples inside the place, who I assume are also first-timers here. I met the accommodating staff who shared their menu and told me some tidbits about the place.

Sweet Mother's Day at SM Mall of Asia

If there's one gift that you would want to give to the most important woman in your life today - aside from love, love, love - what would it be and why? If you'd ask me, I would like to give my mom more sweetness - something that would leave a good smile on her face and made her feel how much we love her.

This Mother's Day, we have a million and one ways to show to our super moms how thankful we are to have them in our lives. May it be through flowers, chocolates, greeting cards or just a simple kiss on her cheeks, I know that you wouldn't let this day pass without letting her feel that we care for them; that they are the most important woman in our lives; that we love them so dearly that we can't afford to loose them.

I know my mom very well. Spending my entire existence by her side, I know what would make her so happy. Do you know what it is? Yep, yep, yep - FOOD. My mom who knows how to cook well, has a huge love for food too, next to us, her sons and daughter. Hehe. And that one food that really sweeps off her feet - DESSERTS.

Good thing, at SM Mall of Asia, most of its food stores have a sweet offering to all moms this Mothers' Day weekend that moms, dads and children would surely love and enjoy.

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.
