Boracay: Aria Gelato Italian Ice Cream

I know that one of the greatest reasons why we keep visiting Boracay, world’s top 4 destinations, is because we wanna experience the heat of the sun in a very good and enjoyable way. But did you know that enjoying the sun in a very “cool” way is so easy to do too here? And it comes with the word “delicious” too! Two words, Aria Gelato.

When I got to visit Boracay, I didn’t have the most ideal weather back then. There were a lot of times that it was cloudy, and there were those that the sun is shining the brightest. And during those times that the sun is shining the brightest, I took the opportunity to have a delectable and heat-beating gelato that you could find on the island.

Gelato has been a household name for years now, and in Boracay, you can have some by juts visiting the mini spot of Aria, which is located at the D Mall, Station 2.

To start off our adventure here, we order our own glass of fruit shakes to shake off the heat that we experienced outside.

Pig Out offers a variety of fresh fruit shakes that one can enjoy. Our group had these top two fruit shakes that we really enjoyed.

Inspired by two distinct districts of China, Komrad got its remarkable and worth-sharing dishes from the districts of Hunan and Sichuan.

Cafe Monsees: Heavenly Goodness at Quezon City

Tomas Morato, Timog Avenue, Trinoma and Libis - these are probably the names of the places that one would utter when asked where to eat in Quezon City. But did you know that somewhere down in Katipunan Avenue, despite of that highway being too busy serving the school boys and school girls of Ateneo and U.P., a heavenly bakeshops offers the most heart-warming kinds of bread that you could find in this City of Stars. With it's name that came from one of the owner's, who is also a monsignor, Cafe Monsees is ready to serve a cloud of happiness to everyone!

Last Monday, since it was a long weekend, I graced an invitation to check out this place where they say heaven and earth meet. It is located along the the bustling street of Katipunan Avenue in White Plains, Quezon City, which to me, was very uncommon. But despite of its uncommonness to me, I braved in and let the burning excitement in me comes to life.

With its two red doors standing side by side, Cafe Monsees is very hard to miss. It is adjacent to other local foodie places that's why asking the cab driver to take us there was no problemo.

The Red Crab Series: Crustasia Asian Bistro at Rockwell

Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and China - dishes from these countries made the menu of this elegant foodie spot in Rockwell Power Plant Mall at Makati City more delicious and more festive. And with its contemporary take on these world-class dishes, I'm sure you'll also enjoy dining in its lovely place as we did. Crustasia... a little bit of Asia.

Last Friday, together with my favorite foodie friends, we indulged to the most challenging foodie treat that we've ever had. Challenging not only because we were offered with a lot of dishes, but we also got to taste the spiciest and hottest dishes that Asia could offer to the world.

As you may all know, I'm not a "tough" guy, and one of the things that makes me a not-so-tough guy is spicy food. I can tolerate a little bite of chili on my food, and anything more than that, well, I need a pail of water. Hehe.

Late Night Bingeing at Downtown Bacolod

On our last night in Bacolod, my superfriends and I tried a different experience that we wouldn't do in Metro Manila. Something that some foodies wouldn't even dare to try to if they are out of town too - eat on sidewalks. And if there's one perks that our hotel has, which is the King's Hotel btw, it'll the sidewalk foodie stations that are just outside it.

It was already past 11 o'clock at night and finding a decent place around our hotel was one thing we didn't expect. And since Bacolod is non-7-Eleven county, we ended up having our late night dinner in one of the food stalls we found along Gatuslao Street.

Bacolod: Take Me Back to Calea!

After salivating over pictures and blog posts and pictures and blog posts of my friends who had a taste of these sumptuous cakes from Bacolod City, I finally had my own time to dig in to these sweet and delicious and enjoyed these fantastic Calea cakes! Wee!

From having a hearty lunch at Manokan Country and after buying some pasalubong at BongBong's, my superfriends and I spent some time visiting this sweetest place in Bacolod. I believe Calea has just been there for a few years, but travelers consider the place a must-visit now , and its cakes a must-have!

I never thought that they really have these wide selection, and to surprise us more, the prices were really that affordable! Compared to the other coffee shops I tried here in Manila, Calea offer not just enjoyable treats but also pocket-friendly delights too - something that Manila coffee shops must have.

Bacolod: The Best Pasalubong from Bong-Bong's

On the Eat, Pay Love Trip that I had with my superfriends, Bacolod is the place where we spent  this "Love" portion. Actually, we never thought that we love will Bacolod that much, but with their really sumptuous dishes and lovely people, I can't blame why a lot of people fell in love with this city, including us! And thank God, leaving Bacolod wasn't that heart-shattering as it was supposed to be for us because we were able to spend some lovely time buying "pasalubong" for our "LOVE" ones. ^_^

And here in Bacolod, one of the best places to hit for some goodies for the family and friends back home is BongBong's.

BongBong's is so easy to find since most of the cab drivers are familiar of the place. They also have a kiosk ready to serve everyone at SM Bacolod, but upon our observation, the prices are a little higher, so I guess, if you are buying a lot, better hit it's main store. ^_^

Bacolod: Manokan Country and its BEST Chicken Inasal

Since I had an allergic reactions on chicken, I limit myself from having this feathery creature. As much as possible I refrain from having even a tiny piece of it to avoid more complications. But since my Bacolod trip was scheduled ahead of time, I had enough time preparing myself and readying my enzymes to this Chicken Inasal indulgence at Bacolod's Manokan Country.

Manokan Country gain its popularity for serving this super, duper delicious Bacolod's specialty, and when I got to try it, there's no doubt why a lot of people keeps coming back to this place. Their Chicken Inasal was simply the best!

If it is your first time to visit the highly urbanized city of Bacolod like me, I suggest to write down on your itinerary this - MANOKAN COUNTRY - for you not to miss the best Chicken Inasal you'll ever have in your life!

Located just around the block of SM Bacolod, finding this Chicken Inasal haven is so easy. All you need is a hungry tummy, some money to pay your bill, of course, and your casual self and you are good to go.
