The Black Pig, Taste of Modern European Cuisine

A few weeks ago I started checking some new restaurant, bars, and those restaurants that I've never been before. There are places that you know that you can just sit and just order anything on the menu without being intimidated by the place or the people eating at the next table.

Casual Dining can be, somehow luxurious but one thing is for sure " You only live once and we work not just to sleep and pay bills, so giving yourself a treat for a sumptuous meal is a must.

Someone asked me this question,
"Is it expensive to eat in a European restaurant?", at first, My answer is Maybe Yes, Maybe Not?
Just yesterday I chat with her and told her about my dining experience in a modern European restaurant, called the Black Pig.

Black Pig is a modern European restaurant located on the 2nd floor of Commerce Center, Alabang. One thing I like about this restaurant aside from their unique and delicious food is that they don't have a specialty. Chef Carlos, the one who is in cha…

A Bowl of Ramen Goodness at Butamaru

Ramen is one of my favorite comfort food and I've been keeping track of the best restaurants that offer the best ramen. Sometimes, my husband and I are going out to find more restaurants that can satisfy my cravings for ramen.
Pop up ramen houses and some supermarkets offer their own versions of ramen, but I still prefer my ramen to be cooked with fresh ingredients and freshly made noodles that brings out the authentic taste in ramen and makes your experience more delightful.
Recently I visited Butamaru, one of the well-known ramen house in Ortigas. this is a newly established branch next to their other shop which is located at Westgate Alabang, and I can say that I had a very pleasant experience.
Their staff was very accommodating and polite, not to mention that the place was very inviting and cozy that gives you that feeling that you are having you're ramen in Japan.

here are some of their specialties that I can also say as my favorites.

I can tell that the noodles are fres…

Last June 23, 2016, Metro Manila experienced new treats and surprises from Mister Donut within all shops in the city, surprising promos was offered and launched on this day, there were FREE donuts that were given away at certain areas within the city like bus terminals or even at specific offices. I was glad to be a part of the said event in which free donuts were given away in P2P Buses and I was able to see all the smiles from all the passengers with their free donuts, the entire bus ride was filled with happiness from all ages, a very amazing way to uplift and make someone smile, only from Mister Donut.

Mister Donut has been delighting customers in Manila for more than 2 decades now, it has became part of the list of the local favorites for the usual "pasalubong" that you can grab from their terminal or town mall branches, or for a quick afternoon merienda at the dine-in branches. It is already a part of fun, eating habits.

Young entrepreneur, Rolandrei Viktor “Zark” Varona, found the middle ground in offering hamburgers that truly satisfy even the most gargantuan appetites, yet at prices that do not break the bank. 
It began eight years ago on a casual stroll along the Malate area, Zark discovered a vacant 20-sqm. commercial space along Taft Avenue. At that time, the former OFW, who had just concluded a two-year stint in the kitchens of a cruise ship already owning a franchise for a noodle shop that unfortunately did not work. After six months, he revisited the spot and knew that the location held much potential. The concentration of a young market gave him the idea to put up a burger joint. Everything was history!
