The Art of Taking Time by Swift Premium Corned Beef #mmmTakesTime



Last week, I was invited to an intimate gathering of bloggers to discover the art of taking time with Swift Premium Corned Beef at Pio's Kitchen.

Swift Premium Corned Beef believes that delicious food takes time to prepare, like the slow-cooking process needed to achieve that tender, flavorful and less fatty Swift Premium Corned Beef. 



We had a lovely dinner treat full of well-prepared dishes courtesy of Chef Chin Gallego, chef and owner of Pio's Kitchen.

#makemeFAT at FAT Restaurant, Burgos Circle




Chef Kel Zaguirre of the Locavore fame has opened a new restaurant in BGC that specializes in anything fat and delicious: the restaurant aptly named FAT




Currently on its soft opening, the people behind FAT strongly believes that fat is not evil, as it is necessary to bring out the flavor of the food. 

For starters, I had the Pork's Ear En Croute (Php 370), one of the FAT snacks on the menu.

El Nido Travel Diaries: Island Tour A


I don't really travel during summer except this year when the boyfriend, A, was here for vacation, so I packed my bags (and a huge bottle of sunscreen) and flew to our first stop: El Nido!

Good Morning El Nido! :)

El Nido is a town located around 240 kms north of Puerto Princesa, Palawan. It takes 5-6 hours drive from Puerto Princesa (PPS) to get there. I have traveled to Palawan two years ago, but stayed in Puerto Princesa. It was nice to be back at this paradise, this time with the better half. :)

We booked Island Tours A, B and C via Sealand Ventures, the El Nido partner of my trusted Palawan tour agency, La Tiara Tours. 

Island Tour A costs Php 1200 per person. It includes the tour guide, lunch, life jackets and snorkeling gear. The call time is 9:00AM for the island tours. You need to bring your swimming attire, extra clothes, towel, drinking water and sunblock. 

1. Big Lagoon



There are three lagoons in the tour, one of them is the Big Lagoon. We stayed long enough to take photos and get awestruck on how beautiful the spot is.

The Australian Grassfed Beef Culinary Trail #TrueAussieBeefPH #letsMEATup




I was invited by Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), together with Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) to visit a few of of the top restaurants around the metro to taste their dishes using Australian Grassfed Beef. 

What is Australian Grassfed Beef? It is meat from cattle raised on natural pastures. It may also be called "pasture fed" or "free range". 97% of the cattle in Australia are located in a grassfed environment. Grassfed beef has a yellowish fat tone, less marbling and has a complex flavor due to a varies pastoral diet. This kind of meat is naturally low in fat and cholesterol with a higher level of Omega 3 fatty acids, which is known to lower blood pressure and reduce the risks to certain types of cancers. 

For our trail, we were able to visit four restaurants that serve this healthy type of beef. 

1. Top of the Citi by Chef Jessie

At the Top of the Citi by Chef Jessie, we were served the Australian Grassfed Top Blade Salpicao and the new dishes, Australian Grassfed Beef Striploin in Morel Sauce and Roast Australian Grassfed Beef Sandwich with Homemade Country Fries.

Wild Ginger at Powerplant Mall



My friend and I went to Powerplant Mall in Rockwell to have dinner at Wild Ginger, a restaurant that serves Southeast Asian dishes.

The menu is a mix of Thai, Indonesian, Filipino, Singaporean, Malaysian and Indian cuisines. I do love Asian dishes and I was so happy to have found this restaurant.

For starters, we had Roti Prata with Curry Dipping Sauce (Php 155).

The roti prata was served warm and I love how the flavors of the spices burst in my mouth.
