I was invited last week to visit Earth Kitchen's second location at Bonifacio High Street Central. Their first location is at White Plains, Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City.

Earth Kitchen is a joint project of Got Heart Foundation, Hizon's Catering, Chef David Hizon and Chef JR Trani.

Most of the ingredients they use are directly sourced from local farms from Luzon to Mindanao. The ingredients are free from any chemical and harmful inputs. Moreover, Earth Kitchen proudly makes all their dishes from scratch - from the pasta to the ice cream. :)

El Nido Travel Diaries: Island Tour B

As part of our El Nido rendezvous, the boyfie and I also took the Island Tour B. 

Island Tour B rate is Php 1300 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. 

Our tour group for the Island Tour B was smaller compared to Tour A and C. Our tourmates were a French family and a Russian mom and son. Yes, I was the only Filipino in the group. :p

1. Pinaglugaban Island (Snorkel Site)

Our first stop is a dive and snorkel site. We were given ample time to snorkel in the blue waters.

The Future of Restaurant Menus: Ordering on Tablets

It is undeniable that the Philippines is among the countries most obsessed with mobile technology, with the country generating 10% of global SMS at one point. With the advent of smartphones and instant messaging apps, we are seeing fewer SMS being sent out, but also witnessing how smartphones are becoming an increasingly integral part of our lives. Tablet computers, in particular, are now seeing more use in a variety of settings, and even the Filipino restaurant industry has begun to utilize them in the form of digital menus. 

Stores in other parts of the world have already established a tablet-ordering system, claiming that it is a great investment in favor of their customers. Some retail stores and warehouses have also implemented digital menus and catalogues, with the system expected to improve the efficiency and accuracy of order picking while saving in labor and paper costs

The Perfect Pint

I was invited by Zomato last week to try this gastropub in Crossroads BGC: The Perfect Pint. 

The Perfect Pint is a beer drinker's paradise as they serve local craft beers on tap, best paired with delicious Filipino and Asian dishes. 

I was able to try the Pivo Praha Weizen (Php 250 for 400mL/Php 210 for 330mL) and 32nd Street (Php 250 for 400ml/Php 210 for 330mL).

Pivo Praha
32nd Street

Pivo Praha Weizen (4.5% ABV, 20 IBU) is light and refreshing while 32nd Street (5.7% ABV, 14 IBU) is more on the sweeter side.
