Personalized Pizza and More at Mad for Pizza!



A new create-your-own pizza place has recently opened, and it offers more than just pizzas: meet Mad for Pizza. :)



Located in Il Terrazzo, Mad for Pizza serves snacks, salad, rice dishes, desserts and even cocktails.

For starters, we had the Disco Fries (Php 188).

Nacho style toppings on my favorite junk food, how could I complain? :)

We also had their House Salad (Php 158) and Spaghetti Carbonara (Php 188).

Habitual Coffee: A Hipster Third Wave Coffee Shop




Good news: a new third wave coffee shop has opened recently, and the better news? It's just near my workplace! :)

Located inside the very hipster Edition Lifestyle Shop, Habitual Coffee began its dry-run last July, serving coffee using Aeropress. Aeropress is a coffee-brewing device that steeps coffee in less than a minute.

Kapeng Barako Club: Samahan ng mga Bitter



I discovered Kapeng Barako Club on FB. I initially thought that it was an existing club for coffee addicts (like me), I just found out later on that it was a Palanca award-winning play written and directed by Juan Ekis. Juan Ekis is also known for his other Palanca winning play, "Twenty Questions".

What makes this play more interesting is staged in cafes. This year, it is set in Third Cup Cafe along Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City.

New Dishes from Osaka Ohsho!



I recently visited the place with the best gyoza in town, Osaka Ohsho, to try their bestselling items and their newest dishes. 

For salad, we were served Osaka Ohsho Salad (Php 195 for half order, Php 330 full order) and of course, the gyozas: Original, Nori, and Cheese.

The Osaka Ohsho salad is generously topped with fruits, walnuts and kani. The dressing was a bit sweet but blends well with the whole dish. Our visit to Osaka Ohsho seems incomplete without gyoza. I really love their Cheese gyoza the most. :)

Say “Aloha” to Teddy’s!



Teddy’s Bigger Burgers, Hawaii’s number one burger chain, marks its entry into the Philippines with the opening of its first store on August 23, at Level 3, Greenbelt 3, Makati City.

Awarded multiple times as the best burger in Hawaii, Teddy’s Bigger Burgers takes pride in its signature fare: its 100% corn-fed ground chuck made-to-order burgers served with a sweet and tangy special sauce; and its super  thick milk shakes. 

Established in 1998 by Ted Tsakiris and Rich Stula, Teddy’s has 11 locations in Hawaii and recently opened mainland locations in Washington and Iowa, with stores soon to open in California and Texas. The Philippines is Teddy’s 2nd international location, following Japan. 

To celebrate its Philippine debut, Teddy’s will treat its first 100 customers with free Original Teddy’s Burger (5 oz.) on its August 23 opening day.

Arya Persian Restaurant



Long before I fell in love with Japanese food, I was crazy about Persian food. But honestly, looking for a decent Persian restaurant seemed difficult for me because some places I have tried before either changed the quality of their food, or has closed down. I was glad Mr. B brought me to Arya, the place he claims to serve authentic Persian food. 





I love the interiors of the place, and they play Persian music in the background (I couldn't stop Mr. B from singing, haha). There are also tables outside for guests who want to get shisha.

Ace Water Spa




Probably the strictest yet very popular spa that Mr. B and I went to is Ace Water Spa

Ace Water Spa has been featured in television, magazines and other blogs for a thousand times because of its unique concept: the Hydrotherapy Massage. 

The pools have aquatic jets that focus on a particular part of the body. The water has a specific temperature to optimize your spa experience. 

Apologies for the low quality of photos as most parts of the place don't allow photography to protect the privacy of the guests.




Rates:

Php 550 for adult and Php 250 for kids (4 ft & below) for 4 hours stay.

What should I bring?
