Crustacia Asian Bistro

I am a proud Asian and one of my favourite cuisines is a fusion of Asian dishes. I actually feasted in Crustacia before and they really serve the best buffet crabs and other Asian dishes, if I may say. I was so excited when I was invited for dinner in the newly renovated Crustacia Asian Bistro in Rockwell.




Crustacia Asian Bistro in Rockwell is newly renovated. You could clearly see the Asian feel from the lights to the chairs and almost everything about the ambiance in the place. The China inspired place is simple yet very artistic and modern; though the place looks elite you will feel comfortable because of the friendly staff and crew.


The Asian feel does not only start and end in the ambiance alone but more importantly on the menu! I became familiar with some of the dishes because I already went to Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau plus my Dad loves Indian food so I know some too. The food that was served was so overwhelming that after taking pictures I hurriedly ate the lot.

BenMore Scotch Whisky

Everybody loves to celebrate and celebration always comes with something to drink. I was invited to attend the launching of a new brand of Whisky that is sure to hit the bars. For some of you who still don’t know, Whisky or whiskey refers to a broad category of alcoholic beverages that are distilled from fermented grain mash and aged in wooded casks (generally oak). Different grains are used for different varieties, including barley, rye, wheat, and corn. I have tasted whisky before and I find it something not to consume on a daily basis, that’s just me. 

BenMore Four Casks Scotch Whisky is the newest whisky that is produced and distilled in Scotland; it is made by Diageo – a leader in the liquor industry. It is matured in four different types of oak casks to achieve depth and complexity to match the standards of whisky drinkers. 
 
The special selection of whiskies in BenMore Four Casks has been matured in four different types of oak casks namely, Sherry Casks, Bourbon Casks, Charred Casks, and Refill Casks. This deluxe Scotch whisky puts much attention to details in preparation and even in production.

Bizu - 10 years and more

I was invited to experience Paris in one night thru the Bizu blogger event last September 7, 2011. 

It was indeed a night to remember. French Cuisine is originated in Paris, France. The French Cuisine is also known to be European Dining; you will be served with multiple courses or meals. Paris is also known for pastries, the dessert and sweet treats that we enjoy. 


Pastries here in the Philippines are now achievable thru Bizu Patisserie



Bizu, which came from the French word Bisous meaning kiss or beso, has managed to change the pastry landscape in Manila as it introduced artisan cakes (unique, handmade, and delicately designed cakes) in personal sizes that are both appealing to the eye and the palate. It was the first patisserie to bring in cakes with modern flavors, textures and forms not yet known or experienced by many Filipinos.

Bakersville Hand-made Bagels



It was my mom and dad who introduced me to eating bread in the morning, since then I love hot pandesal with butter and a hot cup of coffee for my breakfast. Breads nowadays is more than just Pandesal, I recently tried a hand-made Bagel given to me by a friend. I was given two packs, one plain Bagel and the other one, topped with black and white poppy seeds. 



The instruction that was given to me by my friend is to re-heat it in the toaster instead of microwave. I love the crispy and a bit salty exterior of the Bagel and the soft and chewy interior. I even place butter and garlic powder on my second plain bagel and loved it even more. I wish I tried jam or cream cheese or even ham and cheese! I will do it next time. 

Bakersville Bagel is found in Mercato Centrale, and costs p100 per pack. I believe that delicious and healthy food is always worth your money. The same goes for this Bagel.

Great Dole Cook-Off

My love for eating caused me to start this food blog and hopefully start learning how to cook too. My cooking skills though are limited only to frying, sautéing and boiling. I can prepare simple meals with the help of cooking books and online recipes. Just recently, I attended an event in that does not only teach me valuable lessons about cooking, but also lessons on food and its nutrition, Magsaysay Institute for Hospitality and Culinary Arts or MIHCA is the hosted the place for the event.

The Great Dole Cook Off is a launch of the Dole Philippines Tomato Sauce. Dole, being the world’s largest producer and marketer of highly fresh fruits and vegetables and packaged foods, has committed itself to further health and nutrition in their wide array of quality products such as canned pineapple solids, canned mixed fruits, canned beverages and packaged fruit snacks. 


Yellow Cab is all Fresh and Natural

 In line with a decade of celebration of great pizza, Yellow Cab invited bloggers and introduced Fonterra Brands Philippines, Yellow Cab’s source of dairy products that they include in their great pizza and pasta. 


Fonterra Brands Philippines, is the name behind Anchor, Anlene and Anmum – among others. There were two chefs from Fonterra that was invited to give a little talk about their products and their service to Yellow Cab. The dairy that Fonterra has like the Cheese, Milk/Cream, and Butter are on of the all fresh and natural ingredients in Yellow Cab’s pizza and pasta. I learned the different kind of cheese and I somehow picked up how to make cheese, the natural way.
 

 My family uses Anchor Butter all the time and it’s perfect with the dishes mom prepares for us. We grew up with Anchor Butter in our fridge. And now that Anchor has culinary cream, my mom will definitely enjoy preparing food for us because of the wide us of cream.We were told that the cheese used in Yellow Cab's Pizza is from Fonterra also. 

Yellow Cab Celebrates 10 years of Great Service, Great Pizza!


Yellow Cab Pizza Co., one of the countries prominent pizza chain just turn 10 this year! I am a fan of Yellow Cab Pizza because of the huge size and very delicious oven baked pizza that they serve and I didn’t even know that they have been serving mouth watering pizza and other dishes for 10 years now. In our office, whenever we have meetings, we always, always order Yellow Cab
