L'Entrecote: A Taste of France Now in Burgos Circle

I believe it is of every Filipino's dream to  to see and experience the life in one of the most romantic places on earth. And I, being one of those dreamers, I can't help myself not just to daydream about the sweetness of France but also long to taste its delectable cuisine that it offers to the world. I can't wait for that day to say Lafanggero hits France! ^_^

L'Entrecote, which originates from the Gineste de Saurs family is actually defined by three iconic groups of restaurants. Thanks to Chef Martin Kaspar for bringing one of those restaurants here in the country. And more thanks because it can be easily found in the heart of the metropolis - Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

Chef Martin Kaspar

This two-story piece of heaven offers a wide array of French delights than you could expect. And now that it is considered as one of Philippine Tatlers' 2011 Best Restaurants for Steaks, expect more delicious dishes and more happiness from this bistro. Can't get enough of France now, eh?

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.

Van Houten presents Cocoaphilia

World's top favorite chocolate brand Van Houten gladly shared to selected members of the press and online community their wonderful 180 years of existence and their new found chocolate knowledge through an sumptuous chocolate appreciation afternoon at Society Lounge, Makati City.

I'm a HUGE chocolate lover. And having a day without chocolate is like a suicide to me. So when I received an invitation to attend this Cocoaphilia event, ask no more, I was there - on the dot! Haha!

Upon entering the elegant receiving area of Society Lounge, I was welcomed by our friends from Van Houten. And with a smile as sweet as a milk chocolate bar, they told me to enjoy what they prepared for us.

Japanese Comfort Food at Raku Hokkaido Ramen House

With different Japanese food places available 24/7 all over the metropolis, finding one that gives you comforting experience, unique and close-to-authentic appeal is kinda hard. But do you know that here in Salcedo Village in Makati City, there's this one place that is making a noise - or should I say spreading that good Japanese aroma and flavor that embodies the soothing and relaxing effect of real Japanese dishes? It's name is Raku Hokkaido Ramen House, and this is where my palette led me when I craved for some different Japanese taste here in the bustling city of Makati.

Raku Hokkaido Ramen House has been there for years now, and for those who are not yet aware, their first branch is located at NAIA Terminal 3

When I dined in their newest place here in Makati, I was lucky enough to meet it's owners Mr. and Mrs. Andrew and Sandee Marasigan. They are also the owners of XO46 Bstro Filipino, which is by the way located besides Raku Hokkaido Ramen House here in Salcedo Village, Makati City.

Anyhow, on my first visit to this place, I was treated to an afternoon of Gyoza and Ramen delight, which to my gladness tasted really different. Different in a good way, that is.
