Cantinetta: Fine Dining at Rockwell

Elegant, stylish and not to mention it’s located in Rockwell. With this description you could immediately say that I’m dining in a class A restaurant. Cantinetta is located at Block 9 Power Plant Mall Rockwell Center Hidalgo Drive Makati. If you’re finances can afford an extravagant meal, then this is definitely the place to go. It’s nice to splurge once in a way especially if you’re dining with friends and want to experience that first class service and hotel atmosphere. Cantinetta carries a wide array of menus that’s definitely worth trying. Authentic Italian would be appreciated with their good quality ingredients. I was so fascinated with the care of how they presented each dish. Food lovers like our group was excited to try each dish that was served.

Taste the Bene Difference at Caffe Benne

Drinking coffee has been one of my ways of relaxation. Having a cup of coffee with friends is an enjoyable pastime that I truly cherish.  I usually drink my coffee with a lot of cream and sugar of course, to usually cover up the strong taste of coffee.

Recently, a coffee shop opened at the Eastwood Citywalk 3 last November 29, 2012, Caffe Bene.

Bistecca : Premium Steak House

Location alone represents something; it could tell you what class it belongs to. If you’re trying to locate a premium steak restaurant, then Bistecca in Rockwell is the one. Located at 122 Joya Rockwell Makati. If you are a steak lover or someone who values the worth of your money when it comes to fine dining then Bistecca is again the answer to that question.  I find Rockwell Powerplant Mall as the haven for high end brands, top restaurant, elegance, class and privacy and all of this criteria surely fits the Bistecca. Bistecca prides itself when it comes to steak; they served only the best cut and the best quality steak that picky eaters usually search. Giving not only good quality steak, Bistecca also provide good service and privacy that event the president of the nation appreciate (the PSG is the one that give away the clue whose dining inside the restaurant).

Italian Porchetta + Orange Truck = Chef Robby Goco

I say that what ever we created with our heart is a masterpiece.  And when we create this masterpiece, we don’t think of limitation and it’s boundaries but what it could present.
This coming Feb. 22-25, 2013 is a date that food lovers shouldn’t miss as  Chef Raoul Roberto “ Robby” Goco presents his own masterpiece as he compete on the Food Truck Challenge at the Manila Food and Wine Festival 2013

Chef Robby’s variation of his Porchetta is his way of bringing two worlds of culinary tradition – the Italian spiced pulled pork in a sandwich and Pinoy’s well celebrated lechon.

A whole lot of lovin’ from Britain’s best loved biscuits

Valentine, Valentine, What’s with Valentine’s day that everyone seems to go 360 degrees thinking what to give and how to give their love one something to cherish or just the usual pogi points as they say to be gain . No amount is spared just have that perfect something for the love ones but giving is not just the end of it. We must also consider what benefits our gifts could give.
McVitie’s Digestive

Giving “sweet somethings” may be the usual thing to do during Valentine’s Day. But when you give a gift of sweets to your loved one or special someone on Hearts Day, it doesn't have to be always something decadent and sinful.

Kohsamui Thai Cuisine : North and South Combined

Being adventurous means trying everything that my tang would take me. Located inside the Hobbies of Asia is the Kohsamui Thai Cuisine, their specialty is the authentic Thai yellow curry.

I had tried everything so far, Korean, Japanese, Chinese and Pinoy cuisine; so why not Thai cuisine this time. I found out that the restaurant just opened last December and officially open after a 40 day soft opening. From day 1 up to day 40, adjustment were made to suite the demanding taste of the Filipino.
The restaurant was founded by a group of friends who enjoyed travelling and simple food trips. Their visit to the southern cities of Thailand, where dishes are not as spicy as its northern counterpart, opened opportunity to explore a twist in the common notion that curry means spicy.  And they say the rest was history and KohSamui Thai Cuisine is born in recognition of the Koh Samui Island where it all started.

Kokoro Ramenya : Ramen and More

Another invitation came up to last week, to join my friends to some ramen adventure.  Located at the 2nd floor of Avenue of the Arts Bldg is the recently open Kokoro Ramenya.  I was expecting that the restaurant would only be serving ramen but I was surprise with the variety of Japanese cuisine they offer. I started my craving for Japanese food two years ago when I tasted my first California maki and from then on, the rest was history as they say.

Lucky me at Clucky's Chicken

It had to said, “My love for Korean food had jump to another level because of Clucky’s Meal, from the way they cooked and presented their versions of fried chicken to the gelato dessert, not to mention the famous brew iced tea”.

I just came from a trip in Los Banos Laguna, when a couple of friends invited me to have a dinner with them. Since the said restaurant is located at the G/F Tower 2 of Rockwell Business Center in Ortigas which is near my residence, how could I say "no". How lucky I am that I did not say “  No” to them even though I am so tired and just want to go to sleep.

Eng Bee Tin : The Home of the Best Hopia and Tikoy

Whenever I’m in Binondo, one of my priority is to pass by at Eng Bee Tin Chinese Deli and purchase the famous ubehopia and tikoy.  I don’t know why but ubehopia has this aroma that you can’t resist and taste that keeps me coming back for more. Eng Bee Tin made sure that I got the finest hopia to take home to my love ones.

Dunkin’ Donuts for Derek Ramsay : My One and Only

I was envious  when Derek Ramsay told me that he had found his new love at the last media event I attended. Derek Ramsay has this to say about his new love, “There’s only Dunkin’ Donuts for me. Many sweet things have come and gone in my life, but Dunkin’ Donuts lingered with me through the years. This is not just a brand I endorse; this is a product I truly enjoy, donuts that I crave for regardless, whether I’m here or abroad.”

The new face of Dunkin’ Donuts, the country’s leading donuts, coffee, and baked goods chain, is a hot new offering that’s sure to salivate everyone’s taste buds – literally and figuratively. Derek Ramsay kicked off his endorsement with the P199 a dozen promo of Dunkin’ Donuts Classics, which is extended until February 10, 2013.

I was called in so many names; purple, violet, lilac but the most appetizing of them all is no other than “UBE

I was at Binondo the other day and along Ongpin Street, where a restaurant was standing out from the rest. Mr. Ube and Rice Noodle House is the newest addition to my list of favorite spot when it comes to dining.  The owner of Mr. Ube is also the man behind the successful Eng Bee Tin, where I can find the famous Ube Hopia and Tikoy.
