Restaurant Favorite: Chili's

Chili's has been a classic go to place for burgers, chicken fingers and milkshakes. It is one of the places R and I first shared a meal together and we had really good memories there. And this is why hearing its name never fails to make me smile. But Chili's came up with something that made me grin even bigger and that has something to do with their new offerings that have more Asian flair to it. 

Hello, Chili's!
Our favorite chili came up with more delectable dishes this year with its Tender Bites and Texas Two Step dishes which are designed to be more Asian which is a new addition to its Southern American cuisine.

More than just Fried Chicken: BonChon's K-Fries

BonChon has been the top of mind brand when it comes to Korean fried chicken here in Manila. It came to our shores back in 2010 and it has continued to delight our taste buds with its perfectly fried chicken since then. And after the success of its crowd favorite Soy Garlic and Spicy chicken flavors and the launch of its breakfast meals, BonChon expanded its menu that will make you come back for more. 

Hello, BonChon.
I usually drop by this popular Korean food chain whenever I crave for some Soy Garlic Chicken. Since I always have an order in mind, I never bothered to look at the menu.

What is your darkest secret? It is definitely something one cannot easily share, or at least while sober. But don't you just hate having to hide it all the time or being on guard? It is one of my goals this year to be free of having this unnecessary burden and thankfully, I found a way to break away from it.

First Sip: Versus Barcade

Tired of the normal night out with friends where all you do is drink, chat and maybe dance (when someone gets overboard in alcohol)? What if I tell you that there's a new bar in town that could make your mundane night a little bit funner? Hint: Barcade.

First Bite: ¡OYE! Tapas & Grill

Is it just me or there is a crazy number of restaurants opening here and there? I used to be able to keep up with the new store openings within my area but I couldn't keep up anymore with the rate it's going. But I prioritize those I've been itching to try and one of the new restaurants I spotted a few weeks back is this tapas place in Uptown Bonifacio.

Hello, ¡OYE! Tapas & Grill!

First Bite: Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine

Celebrating Chinese New Year has been deeply ingrained in our culture. We'd see non-Chinese families also welcoming the Lunar new year by feasting on Chinese delicacies,  cheering during the Dragon Dance and elaborate fireworks displays and handing ampaos to the little ones. Such strong obervance led to the said celebration to be declared a special non-working holiday since 2012. And there is no better way to spend this day than to indulge in some classic Chinese favorites.

Hello, Shangri-La Finest Chinese Cuisine.

Be More Imaginative with Toblerone this Valentine's Day

I still remember those younger years when I dream of being pampered by my prince charming with flowers, balloons and all those grand gestures to show his affections. But as I grow older, I become more and more practical and I found myself telling R not to buy me anything inedible. Defining myself as a scrooge would be too harsh as I still enjoy other forms of gifts. And my favorite to date is when R prepared a lovely steak dinner for us in Tagaytay. But with us being so busy these past months, we could barely even celebrate each others birthdays. Thankfully, a thoughful brand came up with an easy yet thoughtful way for us to express our love.

Hello, Toblerone Valentine's Limited Edition Sleeves!
