Food Trucks and More at Cucina Andare!

Imagine all the Autobots and Decepticons join forces in one night to give the best of the best foods that you'll ever have while on the road. It was, I guess, the idea behind the hippest and newest attraction in Makati City now, because with Cucina Andare's food trucks ready to fill every hungry tummy in town, I'm sure you are ready to fight and conquer the delicious and most appetizing treats of Cucina Andare!

Few days before Christmas, Mercato Centrale's Anton Diaz and RJ Ledesma opened up another food venue masterpiece that is sure to bring delight to every food lover in town. With food trucks all over the place, this is one concept that is set to rev up your appetite in its most amazing way.

I was there on its opening night, and despite the fact that the place was a little crowded, it was so nice to know that there were really a lot of great choices therea- actually all of them were great! And albeit the seats and tables were limited too, since the people here just come, eat and go a little fast than expected, we had a great time dining and enjoying what this place has to offer.

Starting the Day with Sentro 1771 Breakfast

Nothing beats a morning with great breakfast and a cup of hot chocolate for me. It made me feel like its Christmas every day, really. May it be at home or at some fast food restaurant or, in my this case, in a fine dining place like Sentro 1771, breakfast is for me the unbeatable meal of the day!

Last week I was invited to try the power meal of one of the country's modernized Filipino restaurants - Sentro 1771. Located at the heart of Serendra in Bonifacio Global City, this high-ceiling place, which is devoted in offering a traditional Filipino cuisine with a twist is happy to let everyone know that they are offering delectable and all-Filipino breakfast meals that are set to give that amazing morning.

Sentro 1771 has an array of delectable Filipino breakfast set meals that are sure to keep you on the mood, and that day without any hesitation, I tried their Bonuan Boneless Daing na Bangus.

Juice Up with Dole this Christmas!

Diet is probably one of the hardest things to do this Christmas other than waking up early and taking a bath, right? Hahaha! But don't you worry, because I just found a more rejuvenating and beautifying way to keep our tummies feel energized and sexier. Presenting the Dole Juice Up!

While some health and beauty buffs  are too busy looking out for an energy drink that can help them boost their energy and keep them beautiful and sexy, us, lafanggeros, need not to worry this tummy-filling season, because with the all-natural drink that serves the same purpose – Rejuvenate and Inner Beauty are its main target.

A new alternative to your daily pick-me-upper, Dole Rejuvenate is the all-natural pineapple juice you've grown to love, now infused with active ingredients of Ginseng and Guarana. It gives you the same energizing effect with the usual revitalizing goodness and freshness of pineapple juice.

Seafood lovers in the southern Quezon City area will surely have a tummy-filling Christmas because by the opening of the new hotspot in their area, Robinsons Magnolia, I'm sure that a bountiful of awesome food finds in awaiting for them. And with the opening of one of the hottest and delicious seafood-offering restaurants here, its definitely gonna be an amazing seafood adventure with Blackbeard's Seafood Island.

Last December 2, I was invited to witness again the opening of Seafood Island's latest branch in Robinsons Magnolia in Quezon City. And together with a number of guest and foodies, who were so eager to dive into the wonderful offerings of this renowned restaurant, Mr. Raymund Magdaluyo and his mother, Mrs. Chiqui Magdaluyo, welcomed their guests to a fight that will their tummies.

For quite a number of times that I've been to a Red Crab Group of Companies' event, if I'm not mistaken, this is the first time that I've seen and met the woman behind all of these wonderful restaurants. For those who didn't know yet, it was Mrs. Chiqui was the one who started all of these seafood craze in the country, and with his only son, Raymund dealing with the business side then, the company grew larger and larger and branched out to different kinds such as Crustasia, ClawDaddy's and this, Blackbeard's Seafood Island, to name a few.

More of East Asian Cuisine from Hong Kong Roast Jupiter!

It's been a year now since I first indulged to the wonderful Hong Kong flavor brought to us by business woman Mary Chan. Her dishes and Hong Kong Roast Food Express' menu was inspired by her travels and gustatory adventures abroad providing a pocket of sincere, casual Chinese dining in the middle of busy, impersonal Makati

Hong Kong Roast started out as a side business for Mary Chan, but after the raves from her really delicious offerings, Hong Kong Roast is happy to announce that they are branching out now to make more hungry Filipino happy.

And few weeks ago, I had my first dining experience at their re-opened store in Jupiter Street, in Makati City. Specifically located at the corner of Jupiter and Galaxy Streets, Hong Kong Roast Food Express offers a classy yet homey Chinese dining experience that will delight every hard-working employee in this side of town.

My First Hop to Kangaroo Jack

It was at SM North EDSA when I first saw this store named Kangaroo Jack actually, and though I wasn't able to try it then, I'm glad that my first enjoyable dinner from this place took place at SM City Baguio, where the ambiance is definitely relaxing and eating delicious food is a must-do - every hour! Hahaha!

Kangaroo Jack is the latest addition to the growing casual dining place in SM City Baguio. Located at the veranda on the left side of the mall, leading to Starbucks, Kangaroo Jack just opened a few months ago offering mostly American dishes ready to heat up and fill your tummies one dish at a time.

Lovely Occasions with Little Bites

A few weeks ago, I have this huge problem. With only few days left on my hand to give my aunt a somehow lovely 60th birthday celebration, I still don't have a cake for her. My aunt, who is one of the best aunts in the world, deserves nothing but the loveliest kind on her birthday, and thankfully upon scanning every bakeshop page on Facebook, I stumbled upon Little Bites.

I've tried their offerings before when I checked out the Ultimate Taste Test 9.0 at Soderno last August, so I'm pretty sure that the taste would be great, but one of the many problems when it comes to ordering from reputable and in-demand bakeshops like Little Bites is their schedule. Thankfully, their owner, who is sweeter and lovelier than her goodies, accepted and granted my rush order. :-)

Cupcakes paved its way to the market back in 2009, and since then, the demand of these delectable and really cute pieces are that high, that's why no wonder a lot of people now turned their baking hobby into a business by putting up their own bakeshop online, and Little Bites is now one of them. Managed and owned by housewife and mom Cham Castejon Niduaza, Little Bites range of products runs from cakes, cupcakes, cake pops (cake lollipops) and crinkles.

Finding and Enjoying the Hidden Q Bistro

I dunno how come that a chic and oozing-with-delectable-dishes place like Q Bistro haven't caught any foodies' eyes and palette yet? I mean, the place was like a mine of gold placed under our noses and yet when I checked online, I barely see any write up about it? Oh, come on, guys, don't tell me that a Php425.00 roast beef and salad buffet doesn't sound appealing? Hehehe!

Last week, on a surprisingly not-so-busy Friday noon time in Ortigas, I spent my lunch in this small and semi-private place called Q Bistro. Situated near Podium Mall, this swanky restaurant is owned and managed by lawyer-chef Ameera "Mia" Katigbak Capay, 32, who is also the chef of The Malayan Plaza Hotel, a condotel that's servicing guests of this highly-urbanized district.

Q Bistro is under the roof of The Malayan Plaza Hotel, which is a few steps from Podium and SM Megamall. And just like I said, the place is a quiet on a not-so-busy Street of Opal, opposite of Oakwood Premier Manila Hotel.

Finding this place isn't really hard, because once you reached The Malayan Plaza Hotel, guards there will lead you to this heavenly place ready to fill you hungry tummy at a very affordable price!
