Kroketten: Dutch Potato Goodness, Pinoy Style

Last week, while waiting for Mall of Asia Arena gates to open for the staging of Cirque Du Soleil's Saltimbanco, I finally had my moment with these potatoes, which has been a topic on my Facebook wall for days. Basically a croquette of Dutch, these potatoes goodness that just came ashore our land is named Kroketten and they are serve Pinoy style! :-)

Located at the jeepney station fronting the SM Department Store building of SM Mall of Asia, this newly established kiosk is also available in selected malls in the metropolis giving the same crunchy Dutch potato snack that has been favorite by a lot.

On my first dibs on this healthy snack, I was surprised by how easy they are to prepare. If you want a quick bite, and you want it heavy and flavorful, this fun and rounded snacks are available hot and crunchy for you in less than two minutes. With 9 exciting flavors, including our very own Mango, Longganisa, Pork Adobo and Tuyo Flakes flavors, these delicious snacks are also gaining attention in other malls in the metropolis since it was officially opened due to its easy-to-eat approach.

Yabu at the Mega Food Sale

One tummy-filling happening this long weekend is the most anticipated installment of SM Megamall's ultimate food fair, the Mega Food Sale. And since last night was a Friday night, and Friday means dining out to me, I treated myself to a night of modern Japanese katsudon in no other than the House of Katsudon itself, Yabu!

Located at the 2nd level of SM Megamall Atrium, this new talk-of-the-town Japanese restaurant that specializes katsudon or rice bowl topped with pork cutlet, egg and condiments, has been the rave of Filipinos since it opened its doors a few months ago.

I was happy that they joined the fun of the Mega Food Sale and treated their new customers, as well their loyalists, to a dining experience that is sure to hit that katsudon craving.

To my surprise, by the time I got at their spot here at the Atrium, the place was already filled with excited customers who were eager to sink their fangs on to those meat. One in-demand pork meat that you can have here is their Kurobuta, which is a Japanese term for Berkshire Pork. They say that its has this very tender and juicy meat that it just perfect even if they deep-fried their katsudon.

Avalanche of Flavors by Figaro Coffee Company!

The sun is up again, and what way to celebrate the goodness of sun? Well, there's the newest delectable and refreshing treats from Figaro Coffee Company - a treat that will bury your taste buds to an Avalanche of Flavors!

Created to satisfy that sweet tooth, this Figaro's latest batch of satisfying swirlies are available in four delightful flavors that are a sure-hit to young and young-at-heart alike. I was able to taste four of them, and out of those four flavor , there's one that really stood out and made me feel the cool and arctic burst of its flavor.

The first flavor that I had from this batch was the White Chocolate Mocha Frost. The taste of this one is kinda ordinary to me, but if you love mocha, we'll this is the best for you. The sweet blend of milk and coffee  was really tasteful but since this is an ice blend, there was this like a minty kick to it. The white chocolate's purpose I think is just to make the swirl a little think.

Ultimate Taste Test 9.0 takes South via Storm

The crazy Storm Gener didn't stop me and the rest of the foodies from Southern Manila last Sunday as Soderno hosted the most tummy-filling and challenging food criticizing event of the year, the Ultimate Taste Test 9.0!

From its humble beginnings as a ‘taste test’ among friends and neighbors, the Ultimate Taste Test has become a sold-out event drawing in thousands of foodies eager to try the latest food discoveries. And last Sunday at The Soderno at Molito Lifestyle Center, hundreds of wanna-be food critics flock to the venue to have a sample of what's gonna be hit in a few weeks!

Believe it or not, this is my first Ultimate Taste Test and my first here in Soderno too. And even though, I'm not really prepared to eat a lot of food, I readied myself to an awesome experience that will mark as the start of my love to Ultimate Taste Test.

Each foodie-participants were given a passport where the names of the participating vendors where indicated. There was also a map in the passport for easy identification of the food stalls. The passport also served as our score sheet where we will put our score on every stall/food that we try. You don't necessarily have to finish all the stalls, but if you can make, well, good for you! At least you get the whole value of your money.
