I must say, this is one of the best steaks I have tasted! This photo does not capture how tasty the meat was. [ me]

CBTL Open House 2016: Vanilla Almond Ice Blended

Welcome a light and sweet concoction for this year's Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Open House.

I recently purchased a Swirl Rewards card that gives you cash back, free wifi at any CBTL store, and access to special promotions like this. Looking back, I should have purchased one before I started collecting stamps for my Giving Journal 2016 to gain the cash back/points that can be used to purchase menu items.

Just by showing my activated Swirl card, I got a free Vanilla Almond Ice Blended (regular size). What a treat! This was available for free between 10am to 11:30am today, January 17. I ordered mine without whipped cream.

True to its tag line, it was light and sweet. Perfect for those who want a sugary milky dose of caffeine.

Branch visited located at: SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City

Year 2015 Asian Food Compilation Special

Time to look back at the other cuisines we have tried in 2015. Let's have a look at our favorite Asian food places this week. Click on the labels to read the full write-up!


The best and most memorable Asian themed restaurant we went to this year. Of course a Japanese restaurant would be favored. If you haven't figured out yet, Japanese is one of my favorites. [ me]

Jang Ga Nae

Memorable because of the adventure we had going there. Good Korean food too. [ me]


Tried out a new cuisine with a delivery discount. Discovered Pad Thai and Thai flavors on this one. [ me]

Four Seasons Hot Pot Buffet 

Since hot pot originated from Asian countries, this hot pot buffet is included in our compilation.
[ me]

Banzai: The Great Teppanyaki theater 

Yet another buffet and another Japanese themed restaurant in this list! [ me]

Year 2015 Filipino Food Compilation Special

Happy New Year!!!! It has been about a week since 2016 started. Continuing the journey with a flashback, let's take a look at the Pinoy dishes we had for 2015. View a list of all the Filipino restaurants we tried here. We have also listed some of the favorite Filipino dishes we tried in 2015. Click the labels of the photos below to see the full write-up.

Mesa's 12 Baked Scallops

Seafood appetizer! I just remember how we started 2015 with a New Year lunch at Mesa and had this tasty appetizer. [ me]

Nipa Hut's Kare Kare and Bulalo

A little far from where we usually dine, this place will be remembered for both its food and the view it offers. [ me]

Manam's Turon with Mango and Kesong Puti

Could be a snack, could be a dessert. Turon's crispiness plus sweet and salty flavors is a sure merienda or dessert treat. [ me]

KKK's Tibok tibok

Two dessert items on this list! Dessert should be equally good as the main dishes in every meal. [ me]

Barbara's Cultural Experience at Intramuros

Sometimes, it's not all about the food. The ambiance and location also contributes to the dining experience. Situated within the walled city, just across San Agustin church which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and within Casa Manila, this is a good venue to feel the historical Filipino vibe. [ me]
