Food Trip at Gastro Park Kapitolyo

My foodie friends and I spent one sunny afternoon in one of the newest foodie spots in Pasig City: Gastro Park Kapitolyo. 

Gastro Park Kapitolyo is an expansive (not expensive) space with 15 food stalls of different cuisines and specialties, wooden tables and chairs, and music. 

We tried as much food as our tummies could handle, and here are the dishes or drinks that we tried that day:

1. El Phante

El Phante is a stall that offers a fusion of Thai and Mexican flavors in their dishes. We got the Sriracha Carnitas Soft Tacos (Php 150) and the Pad Thai-Mex (Php 175).

The Mex-Thai flavor combination is perfect with the Sriracha Carnitas. It was well-presented, and the
level of spiciness was adequate for me. I would love to have this again. The Pad Thai-Mex was also spicy, probably leaning more on the Mexican flavor than Thai. If you love your Pad Thai with more herbs and spice, this one is for you. 

2. Niku-Q

Niku-Q is a promising yakitori stall with amazing yet sizeable choices. My friend got sticks of Chicken Thigh or Momos (Php 40), Pork with Asparagus or Asuparabekon (Php 45) and Angus Steak (Php 60). 

They probably used the same marinade for all meats, but hey, it works so why change it. 

3. Tolyo's Soup & Grill

Grilled Wagyu

Named after the area they are located, Tolyo serves mostly wagyu beef dishes. We tried their Grilled Wagyu Beef with Rice and Egg (Php 150). The meat was tender, alright, but it could have been juicier and flavorful if  it was cooked until medium rare, and not well done. 

4. Brick Plate

Brick Plate offers comfort food like pasta, ribs and pizza. We had their Pulled Pork with Veggies Pizza (Php 145).

Their pizza reminded me of the local pizza that started during the 1980's. For the price, it was good enough and the serving is more than enough for 3 persons. 

5. Bagneto

Kare-kareng Bagnet

Bagneto specializes in Filipino dishes served with bagnet, an Ilocano deep-fried pork dish. We ordered the Kare-Kareng Bagnet (Php 135), served with rice and bagoong. 

I really love Kare-kare, and their version was more than what I expected. I would love more Kare kare sauce though. :)

6. Jap Box


We only tried the Gyoza (Php 80) from Jap Box, which didn't look like the gyoza that I love eating. Jap Box also has misono, teriyaki and donburi, which I would prefer to try when I have the chance. 

7. SurFries

Raspberry Bowl

SurFries is known for the blow-torched cheese on top of their fries, but they are also popular with their Raspberry Bowl (Php 85), a huge juice bowl good enough for 2-3 persons. Almost all the tables order this drink. :P

8. The Seventh Element

Hazelnut French Press

The Seventh Element serves liquid nitrogen ice cream and coffee. Since I was feeling quite full, I had their Hazelnut French Press (Php 50). I love that the French Press was served on our table, complete with sweeteners and creamer. I must say that the coffee was amazing and hazelnut flavor was spot-on. I should try the ice cream next time. 

9. Sweet Nothing

One of the most popular stalls in Gastropark is Sweet Nothing, which serves juices, milkshakes and desserts. We tried the Strawberry Shortcake Shake (Php 120) and the S'mores Milkshake (Php 120).

Though I'm biased with chocolate, I was more impressed with the Strawberry Shortcake Shake, topped with cotton candy. I enjoyed sipping the Strawberry Shortcake Shake more when I mixed the cotton candy with the shake. 

However, the service was quite slow because they ran out of vanilla ice cream at some point that they needed to buy more. I do hope they'll fix the supply problem soon. 

We had a great time trying out various dishes and drinks at Gastro Park Kapitolyo. The prices are reasonable and the choices are numerous that one visit is not enough to try everything. I would love to visit this again and try out more food stalls soon.

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'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.
