Starbucks Summer Frappuccino Image

My favorite Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino has bid goodbye but as what they say, there is still good in goodbyes because Starbucks made two new sets of thirst quenchers namely the Chocolate Black Tea with Earl Grey Jelly and Double Chocolate Green Tea Frappuccino.

These tea-based drinks bring you to a different level of tea experience because they are both creamy and smooth. I love the softness of the Earl Grey Jelly at the bottom of the Chocolate Black Tea. The lightness and unique taste of the Double Chocolate Green Tea took my breath away. Currently, the Double Chocolate Green Tea is my new favorite and I would surely love to grab a cup everyday because these drinks will only be available starting June 7 until July 25, 2016. So what are you waiting for? Don’t dare to miss out on a wonderful tea experience brought to us by Starbucks!

Apart from the new Frappuccinos, they also introduced a few delicious food offerings namely Chicken Parmigiana Wrap, Chicken Milk Bun, Purple Yam Cheesecake, Sausauge and Spinach on Focaccia Bread, Breakfast Pannkcakes, and Go Lite Chips for the those who are on a strict diet!

With only 210 calories, the Chicken Teriwrap is tasty. Considering that they used the breast meat of the chicken, the meat was not dry and it was tender. I love the hint of mango taste in it and the wrap is also soft which is also made of whole wheat flour.

Top Must-Tries at Filipino Comfort Food

It is always difficult to find a restaurant that offers the same quality of food that we eat at home.  That recently changed with the opening of Filipinio Comfort Food (FCF) in Davao City.  Owned by famed restaurateur Cathy Binag, FCF offers a nice selection of home cooked dishes anyone can enjoy.  I certainly did, and would like to share my favorites from their menu.

1.) Chicken Skin – This is my ultimate favorite since I’m a big fan of crispy Chicken Skin.  FCF’s version was crunchy and tasty, without all the grease! Continue Reading

Fresh Potato Chips at Twist n Fizz

When I was growing up, I ate potato chips like there was no tomorrow. As I got a bit older and more mature though, I came to realize that potato chips was a processed food, and consuming them every single day wouldn’t bode well for my long term health. I began working out, ate healthy by avoiding carbs when I can.

And then came Twist n Fizz. Twist n Fizz is the brainchild of a close friend of mine, Keilah Rodriguez. They opened their first branch on the basement floor of the Gaisano Mall of Davao. Twist n Fizz offers tasty and delicious potato chips made only from choice, hand-picked potatoes fresh from the garden. This means that I can go back to eating potato chips, albeit not as often as before, without worrying about eating anything artificial. Twist n Fizz’ Tato Stix is not just healthy but also budget friendly! For only PHP39.00 you can now enjoy their Tato Stix and other products at modest prices.

The White House Fusion Cuisine & Wine Lounge

The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge is a fine dining restaurant located at Camella Northpoint, J.P. Laurel Ave in Davao City. Its ambiance is unique because the restaurant was originally an old house from the 1960’s that was restored by its new owners.  Price range is high but appropriate with the quality of food you will be getting. They have different cuisines for you to choose from that would surely please everybody’s taste buds!

Being a meat lover is not easy. I seldom eat vegetables and I’m very particular with the food that I eat. When it comes to meat, it has to be cooked and prepared with perfection.

I really loved White House’s delectable Black Akadashi Braised Lamb Shank. The meat is soft and juicy. The sauce is savory. Ugggh I just can’t help myself but every time I remember the Lamb, it makes me hungry to death!
