Birthday Dinner at Tampopo

Note: This location is already closed. 



I celebrated my birthday weekend eating food that I enjoy eating the most: Japanese food. To end my birthday weekend, my friends and I had dinner at the newly-opened restaurant in Bonifacio High Street Central: Tampopo.

Tampopo is an international brand from Singapore, serving authentic Japanese ramen and katsu. 

We were supposed to have Deluxe Tampopo Black Pig Shabu Ramen, but unfortunately, Kyushu Ramen wasn't available when we visited. We settled with Sapporo Ramen instead. 

We ordered Deluxe Hakodate Ramen (Php 440) and Sapporo Negi Chili Miso Ramen (Php 440).

I loved the thick and hearty broth of the Deluxe Hakodate Ramen, the generous servings of the corn enhanced the flavor too. However, we found the Sapporo Negi Chili Miso Ramen insipid, though my friends love the spicy flavor. We should have stuck with Kyushu next time. 



For katsu, we shared the Prawn & Pork Fillet Set (Php 495) and Chicken Cutlet Set (Php 340).

Prawn & Pork Fillet Set

Each katsu set comes with rice, Japanese pickles, fruit and miso soup. I was impressed on how crispy the prawn katsu was, however, I found the pork fillet really thin. 


Chicken Cutlet Set

The Chicken Cutlet Set saves the day. The meat was tender and moist, and I would probably have this again along with the Pork Loin Yanagawa. 

Though we went on a bad day (bestsellers not available), we were satisfied with our dinner at Tampopo. The server was helpful enough with assisting us in what to order. The prices were reasonable and the service could still be improved. Nevertheless, satiated our katsu and ramen cravings for the meantime.

  1. Hmm Kyushu Ramen is still out of stock? That is what they told us when we visited two weeks ago too.

Mango Bravo by Conti's

Mother dear celebrated her birthday last month, and as I always do, I bought her a birthday cake. Last year, I got her Grandma's Chocolate Cake from Purple Oven, this time it's Mango Bravo by Conti's.
One of Conti's bestselling cakes, Mango Bravo is available in two sizes: Mini (Php 665) and Regular (Php 1195).
Thinking about the amount of food that will be stored over the weekend, I bought the Mini. 


Mango Bravo is a wafer-based cake with cream, topped with slices of ripe mangoes, with choco syrup and cashew nuts. Oh, this cake needs to be frozen, btw (super thanks to my friend Mike for taking me and my cake home safely. hehe.)

Chocolat: Deep Dark Chocolate Cakes

I've always been curious about Chocolat eversince a friend told me it's really good. PLUS it was included in Spot.ph's Top Ten Chocolate Cakes in Manila so I suggested that my friends and I meet up at this hidden cake store in Katipunan area.

Chocolat offers signature chocolate cakes and other specialty cakes. The place is a small shop that could only sit 10 persons. Customers usually drop by to buy cakes for takeaway.

Pimples No More with AcneCare #MayPagAsaPa

Acne is one of the most common skin problems among teenagers. Also, acne can affect adults. 
What causes acne? According to MayoClinic, the four main factors that cause acne are oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores and bacteria. Hormones, certain medications, diet and stress are also huge contributors that can trigger acne. 
Here are the basic prevention tips you can do to avoid acne:
1. Use less oil-based skin products. 
Using oil-based sunscreen, cosmetics, and other skin care products makes you more prone to acne.
2. Watch what touches your face.
Avoid resting your hands and other objects (like your phone screen) to your face. 
3. Don't prick your pimples
Just don't.
