According to playwright George Bernard Shaw, "there is no sincerer love than the love for food".

With all the restaurants in the metro, we may have tried some of it and still a lot to discover, different cuisines, taste, and styles in serving their best sellers. My goal is to find these restaurants together with other foodies from the Metro.

They say a cup of coffee a day, will keep the bad vibes away, well this works perfectly for me as a coffee lover since I usually gulp down 5-7 cups of coffee a day.

Gelare Airless Ice Cream from Australia is now in the Philippines

I remember when I was a kid, when someone says Ice cream, I'll be the first one to be there, well who does not love ice cream anyways, there may be few but I guess they're missing the best part of their life.
But, do you know? that with the regular ice cream that we grew up contains 50% air, no wonder it's gone with few licks lol. Do you know that there is a famous Ice cream called Gelatos that only contains 25% air, pretty amazing right? But, you think that's the best? well, here comes Gelare Ice Cream, the ice cream that is airless! now that is totally awesome!

Gelare is Australia's most-loved dessert cafe. It was founded in Australia in 1986 and has been palates for over 20 years and counting. Presently, it continues to capture the society's penchant for gourmet dessert in Perth and Brisbane, Australia.Founded by Mr. Farid Torabi, It has over 50 branches spread across Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

So, where does the word Gelare c…

Quick Stop at Chubby's Rib Shack

If you happen to drop by Commerce Center in Alabang, one of the restaurants that you will notice will be  Chubby Rib Shacks, this restaurant offers American and Mexican Dishes, I tried few of their specialties and here is a quick review of the place and their food.

The place can be a good place to hang out with friends. The ambiance is the usual American diners vibe. They also serve cold beers. It can accommodate at least 50- 60 people.

It was coated with BBQ Sauce. It was served with rice, mashed beans and a big half of slice of bread.  If you love carbs, I recommend this for you. The meat is tender but it didn't have that "wow" factor or a unique taste that you will crave for. It seems like pretty normal oven roasted baby back ribs with BBQ sauce.

The Fish is steamed creamy dory, the fish tastes bland even with salsa on top.
Again there are too many carbs on the plate. Maybe they can just ask if the customer wants some rice, bread or mashed beans.

The Nachos is as exp…

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…
