Binge on Meat at Big D’s Smokehouse

For meat lovers like myself, you will definitely love Big D’s Smokehouse.
I got to try their best sellers during Comedy Cartel’s Laugh and Stack Leg 15 which happened last Saturday, November 7, 2014.


Big D’s Eastwood branch just opened last August and had been making it big since then. I’ve been hearing a lot about their ribs and was really excited to try it for myself. If you’re on instagram, do search for #ribsthatrock and drool!


One of the owners, Chef Dino welcomed us with their house blended iced tea while we were waiting for our food to be served. I rarely get the chance to meet restaurant owners during reviews/food tasting and I was really grateful that Chef Dino spent some time with us (their staff are not so friendly but could improve in the long run).







Appetizers.


Hush Puppies – Php175
Chef Dino said, this recipe is originally from his mom that he had recreated.
I love the combination of cheese and garlic sauce and the roasted pimiento inside just made this appetizer extra special.





Start Up Nachos – Duo Php150, Platter Php250
Big D’s version of the most ordered appetizer is just amazing. I love that they used pulled pork instead of the usual grilled pork or beef. The Taco Shells are super thin too and tastes great.



House Specials.


Baked Chicken – Php230.
Perfectly cooked and perfectly plated dish. This could feed two people because of it’s hefty serving. 





Ribs – Solo Php 230, Duo Php 390
One of the best tasting ribs I’ve ever tried. I prefer eating it without the sauce. 


Twice Fried Ribs – Half Slab Php380, Full Slab Php495

I haven’t tasted a twice fried ribs until I dined at Big D’s. It’s perfectly cooked and having vinegar as its dip is just superb. More of a Filipino dish for me. I would say that if it’s not cheap, then it’s fairly priced.



This one’s not yet on the menu and Chef Dino has yet to decide what to name this dish. We’re so luck to be one of the few people who got to taste this first. It’s really good and the meat was perfectly cooked. If this would be the serving size, then it could feed 2-3 persons.



Big D’s is located at 2/F Citywalk 2 (directly above Starbucks), Eastwood City, Quezon City.

Eat Chops The Tomahawk Way

Zomato organized a Foodie Meet-up at Tomahawk, Kapitolyo last Wednesday. Because it was just a stone-throw away from my office, I attended the meet-up and walked away with a happy heart and tummy.

Tomahawk just opened last June 2014 and has been getting a lot of good feedback since then. When I entered the restaurant, I thought it was pretty small but I didn’t realized that it has a second level until one of the waiters led me to our table. Tomahawk has a nice interior and cool frames with quotations that will bring in some good vibes. It’s perfect for team buildings and small gatherings as they can accommodate up to 50 pax.

It was my first time to attend Zomato’s foodie meet-up and I liked how they do it. Before the much awaited food tasting, we were given the chance to get to know our fellow foodies. Everyone has to do a short introduction about their selves and that made us comfortable. Wouldn’t it be nice to dine with people whom you know?

To start of, we were served with five appetizers.
I personally love their buffalo wings which was perfectly cooked. I didn’t have to dip it because it was already good on its own.

Buffalo Wings, Php 180

Among all the chops that were served to us, my top pick is Grilled Tomahawk Chops with Dirty Rice and Mac and cheese. They have a hefty serving which be shared by two. I hate how their dirty rice can ruin one’s diet. It was extremely good!

Grilled Tomahawk chops, Php295 ( Go Dirty Rice option plus Php25)

Their Grilled hanger steak with wine sauce was the star of the night. This is not yet included on their menu but every foodie who attended the meet-up approved that this should be served at Tomahawk ASAP.
I am a sucker for medium rare steak so, this is definitely what I am going to order on my next visit. I think I can eat their steak on a daily basis. Haha! I was so happy when we had another round of Hanger Steak.

Hanger Steak, price not yet available


Well, aside from the Grilled Tomahawk chops, I bet my husband will love their Grilled Rosemary Chicken with Dirty rice and Mashed potatoes. Rosemary blended well with their chicken.

Grilled Rosemary Chicken, Php215 (Go Dirty rice option, plus Php25)

Also a must-try is Tomahawk’s Sausage and Sauerkraut with a big serving of fries. I am not really a fan of sausages but their sausage is just too good to resist.

Sausage and Sauerkraut,Php215


Match any of their dishes with Peach Iced Tea Carafes or any of their imported beers for a more delightful experience.

There were a lot of dishes that were served to us, but the dishes that I have mentioned are the ones that I highly recommend. Visit this resto soon to know how to enjoy food #TheTomahawkWay!

Mega Food Tour 2.0

Mega Mall is one of our favorite Shopping destinations in the metro. Aside from the vicinity, this mall has a lot to offer. Specially for foodies like us. We’re lucky to be part of the last Mega Food tour for  the year and dining with 9 restaurants with Anton Diaz of our Awesome Planet is a bonus.
It’s great that SM Mega Mall came up with this idea because it’s a sure way to market their new restaurants. After all, who do you trust when it comes to restaurant recommendations but foodies or bloggers.


The tour started at 5:00 PM with 18 attendees that were grouped into two to maximize the time. Sharing with you some photos of the yummy dishes that we enjoyed last September 30. 


Ippudo. This is one of the most intriguing new restaurants at the Mega Fashion Hall having been dubbed as the Japanese restaurant who serves the best Ramen. We’ve always wanted to visit this Ippudo but the long line is kind of discouraging. We’re so glad that this is part of our tour. By the way, the chefs here at Ippudo are Japanese so if you’re looking for authentic Japanese food, then Ippudo is the right restaurant for you.  We love the spicy Ramen because of its rich flavor (tho we prefer it spicier).


Ippudo. 3/F Mega Fashion Hall


Linguini Fini. We loved the ambiance. It’ll make you forget that you’re actually inside a Shopping Mall. Everything looks clean at Linguini Fini. We’re both pasta lovers and we’d love to try everything on their menu! Parpadelle “Nose to Tail Bolo” is worth trying.


Linguini Fini. 3/F Mega Fashion Hall


Rosanjin. This is my favorite among the 9 restaurants that we visited.I loved everything that they served! Too bad Miguel has to leave for work and didn’t had the chance to eat at Rosanjin but we’ll definitley come back.


Rosanjin. 3/F Mega Fashion Hall

Cupcakes by Sonja. 

If you’re looking for the best red velvet cupcakes, then go visit Cupcakes by Sonja at the Ground floor of the Mega Fashion Hall. 


We had a short trip to Tim Ho Wan to taste their Pork Buns. I’ve tasted this before. I would say there’s nothing spectacular about this buns, or is it just me?


G/F Mega Fashion Hall

Eri Curry. This is a must try for curry lovers with big appetite! I couldn’t even finish their sampler or maybe I was just too full after visiting several restaurants. I would love to come back and challenge my self to finish a whole serving of their Katsu Curry.


Eri Curry. 3/F Mega Fashion Hall

Tripple O’s. I love their milk shake. I felt bad because I can no longer eat their sampler, good thing they offered a take-out. I got the chance to eat their sampler at work. I can’t believe their patties still taste good even after a few hours ( I ate the sampler during my lunch break ). They serve sweet potatoes instead of fries so it’s healthier and their burgers aren’t oily.


Triple-O’s. 3/F Mega Fashion Hall

I was giddy when I saw different colors of Mochi lined up at Mochi Cream Cafe. It was mouth watering. I loved everything and was even lucky enough to take home some Mochi. Everything is picture perfect and yummy. I love their drink and their Matcha Dacquoise.


Mochi Cream Cafe. 4/F Mega Fashion Hall.


Our last stop – Kool Kids. I enjoyed watching them make Nitrogen Ice cream. I was like a kid waiting for my ice cream to be served. Kids and kids at heart will surely love Kool kids. To Nutella lovers out there, you shouldn’t miss Kool kids on your next visit to Mega Fashion Hall!


Kool Kids. 5/F Mega Fashion Hall


I was extremely happy after the Food tour! I met new friends and tried different restaurants in 4 hours! Now, I know which restaurants we should revisit on our next trip to Mega Mall.


Happy Eating!

Eat breakfast the Aussie way only at Skippy’s Bar

Ever wonder where you can eat a real “BIG breakfast?”
Look no further, Skippy’s bar offers the best big breakfast from 9AM to 3PM. So, whether you’re coming from work, too lazy too cook or you just wanted to dine in the afternoon and have your favorite breakfast, Skippy’s got you covered.



Big Breakfast, Php310



Big breakfast comes with 2 eggs, Bacon, Baked Beans, Tomato, Mushrooms, Hash Brown, Toasted Bread, Butter and Unlimited Coffee/Iced Tea.

This is how I want my eggs cooked but I would trade one egg for another strip of bacon. Haha!


Skippy’s big pancake, Php190

I don’t find anything special with their pancakes, except that it can be shared by two and it’s served with unlimited coffee or orange juice. I want to eat pancakes with unlimited maple syrup. LOL!


Potato Scallops, Php150

Steve (the owner) said he doesn’t put mayo on his potato scallops and suggested that I try their salt with sugar sidings and I didn’t regret following his suggestion. Generous serving too! This can be shared by 2-3 people.



Fried Dim Sims, Php230





Dim Sim virgin no more! I can finish 3 pieces of this. I’m surprised that it has veggies inside. You can also have it steamed or fried. I might go for a steamed Dim Sim on my next visit.




The Lot Pizza, Php450



My favorite toppings, Pepperoni, Ham, Black Bacon, Ground Beef, Pitted Olives, Cheese, Mozzarella, Onion, Jalapeno, Anchovies, Bell Pepper in one pizza! I can finish this whole pizza in 10 minutes, that’s how good it is.



Big Aussie burger (The Lot) Php450

My kind of burger! Wondering what this tower is made of? Aside from the burger bun, you get a homemade beef patty, burger, cheese, lettuce, onion (cooked), beetroot, egg, bacon, pickle, tomato and pineapple.



Shepherd’s Pie, Php450



Ooops, sorry for the blurred photo. Don’t be deceived! This Shepherd’s pie made from fresh ground lamb and vegetables is a MUST try.


Creamy Seafood Marinara, Php350

I love seafood so, this is definitely a hit for me. I would probably request a spicier version next time.


Fish and Chips, Php450

Another generous serving. Beer battered white fish deep fried to its crispness, served with chips. 




Their steaks are fairly priced. Even if they they didn’t cook the steak the way I want it which is medium rare, I just can’t help but munch on these close-to-perfect steaks. I will come back for some pinkish meat. 


Pork Sisig, Php380

One of the best sisigs I’ve ever tried! Pork is crispy and worked perfectly with other ingredients.


Baby Back Ribs, Php650 (half slob)

It’s super tender and the mashed potato along with barbeque sauce just made this the perfect baby back ribs for me.


Cheese Cake, Php150/slice

I love the texture of Skippy’s cheese cake and the lemon twist makes it more delish.


Wooloo Mooloo, Php220

This vodka based drink will make you believe that heaven is for real. Whatever they put on this drink is superb!


Just in case one you want more. haha!

Skippy’s is the perfect place for team buildings or intimate gatherings and they have all your MLB and NFL games too! The only issue that you may encounter would be looking for a parking space. They only have street parking so, you better come early if you plan to watch a game.



The owners, Cristina and Steve Bird
This is one of the best restaurant reviews that I’ve ever been to. The owners are sweet and very accommodating. 

This is me, trying to hide my tummy. LOL! Dress: Zara Shoes: H&M

Chef Arch’s Lime – Street Food na Pinasosyal

If you’re looking for a unique Filipino dining experience, then Chef Arch’s Lime restaurant is the place to go. This restaurant is situated at a quiet place in San Rafael St., Mandaluyong City, just a few blocks away from Mandaluyong City Hall.
  
Established in 2007, Chef Arch’s Lime restaurant offers a wide variety of street food with culinary twists.


To start off, we were served with papadums (Indian Style Nachos with Pico de Galo) as we were getting to know our fellow bloggers.
We love how thin and crispy these tacos are. It has this distinct taste that Indian cusine lovers would enjoy.








Although it doesn’t come with a sinamak dip, we tried dipping Balut in redwine sauce to sinamak and it tastes like heaven! These looked like large meatballs in real life. We thought it would be weird to eat dried balut but this dish proved us wrong.






Whoever invented kwek-kwek is such a loser for using orange food color. Lime’s Quail egg tempura looks classy served with Soy Mirin Glaze and sinamak for your satisfaction.





Who loves Ihaw-ihaw? We do! Chef Arch’s Lime’s barbeque platter is to die for. Their sauce is the best we’ve ever tasted. But mind you, these are so yummy that you can eat everything even without sauce.




Mexican Nachos. Guess who almost finished the whole plate!








Worry-free scramble! I remember being scolded by my mom whenever I buy ice scramble after school. Chef Arch made sure that their ice scramble are not only safe to eat but tastes good as it looks.





Because it is our first time to dine at Chef Arch’s Lime, we thought that the restaurant review will end with the Ice Scramble. Well, because it says, “street food na pinasosyal” and we’re already full!



After a couple of minutes, 2 Pizza variants were served. Sadly, we didn’t get to taste the Crispy Isaw Chicharon Pizza but our fellow bloggers said it was good.




the second variant is four cheese pizza with truffles. We love truffles so, we will definitely order this again on our next trip to Chef Arch’s Lime. 



For us, Kesong Puti Stuffed Chicken Breast w/ Mash & Jus is the yummiest or maybe, we are just bias because we love chicken! This is heaven for us.



Well, hello crispy pata lovers! This is a crispy pata twist that you will surely love!

Chef Arch said that they had the pata de-boned then had it stuffed with some yummy embotido. Definitely a dish made with love.


Osso Bucco Kare Kare is our most awaited dish. We’ve heard a lot about this one-of-a-kind kare-kare.

The meat was tender and we love how the veggies were half-cooked but we find the meat a little salty so eating it without the shrimp paste is the way to go.


Last dish was Hot & Spicy Chili Chicken Wings. Could feed a group of two to four depending on your appetite. We love how this dish was perfectly cooked but we hope they make a spicier version too.


Our favorite part! Cake tasting. Believe us when we say that each variant was perfectly done. 




(top to bottom)Flourless Chocnut Cake,Chocolate Sansrival, Chocolate Mint Torte, Salted Caramel Cake


Thank you Chef Arch for inviting us!

We will definitely come back and try more of your dishes.

Do Good. Look Good. Feel Good.

Our 5 year relationship brought us good memories and a lot of calories!

We both love food but as we grow older, our metabolism slows down. This year, we promised to be more cautious of our diet. Of course, we can’t say no to  some family gatherings or some restaurant reviews but we made a promise that we will start eating healthy at home.

I was privileged to be given the chance to try The Good Box meals for one day. 
Migs and I both have jobs so, preparing healthy dishes at home is a challenge. Good thing, I learned about The Good Box…eating healthy has never been this easy!

It was raining cats and dogs in our area when The Good Box PH called to ask for some directions going to our place. I bet their rider had a hard time looking for our address due to the bad weather. I wanted to cancel the delivery for the rider’s safety and because my shift will start 3 hours from their call. I didn’t have an idea that they deliver food pretty late. But too much for the intro, the following day, I came home and opened their meals and was impressed with their presentation.
They delivered meals with a total of 1200 calories, just enough calories that I need for the whole day.

For breakfast, I had Pesto Scrambled eggs with spinach and avocado, whole wheat toast and a fruit juice. 
Mixing avocado with scrambled eggs is just awesome but I didn’t finish everything. I don’t trust eggs that were already cooked for more that 4 hours (even if it was preheated). I guess, I’ll have to request them to change this meal next time I order from them.

367kcal


AM snack: Fresh homemade smoothie.

I started making this kind of smoothie at home. It’s refreshing and yummy too.

150kcal

Lunch: Ginger and Lime chicken.

This meal looks dull but this is the yummiest for me. I love the combination of lime and ginger plus, the chicken is perfectly cooked. I didn’t get to finish the brown rice tho.

308kcal

PM Snack: Mini Mango crepes.

OK, so this is a reminder that eating crepes is not bad but this should be the standard serving size for me.

90kcal

Dinner: Pesto Salad with Garlic Pesto and Prawns, Salad (320kcal)

Imagine eating a healthy gourmet type pesto pasta?
I didn’t realize that I failed to take a photo of my last meal.


You can choose between six (6) different calorie menus for everyday of the week: 1200, 1500, 1800, 2100, 2400 and 2700 calories, to help you achieve your goals, whether it be slimming down, maintaining your weight, or trying to gain it. They have an in house nutritionist so you are sure that they count the calories right. 


They also offer Special Meal Programs: South Beach DIet, Diets for Medical Conditions / Special needs and 5-day Juice Cleanse.


I just hope that they also deliver meals during day time so more BPO employees like myself will benefit from it too.

For programs and pricing, please check out The Good Box PH website.

Eat well, live well with Ajinomoto

My sister-in-law came home from Tokyo last week with her daughter and she thought of letting her taste Filipino food like our version of sweet and chili spaghetti.

Because i have stocked Ajinomoto products at home, I volunteered to prepare sweet and spicy spaghetti for her little one. 

The ingredients include ground pork, tomato sauce, hotdogs, salt and pepper to taste and half kilo of pasta (she chose elbow macaroni because her daughter is attracted to it).
Her daughter doesn’t like onions and garlic so instead of cooking it the usual way, I didn’t saute the ingredients. Instead, I boiled the ground pork to a liter of water and added Pork Savor All-in-one seasoning mix until it’s tender. I added hotdogs and mixed the tomato sauce and let it simmer for about 45 minutes with gradual mixing so it won’t stick to my sauce pan. 

Pork Savor All-in-one seasoning mix is made from natural pork meat extract and bone broth, complete with spices and seasonings to bring out the deliciousness of home-cooked dishes
So, you won’t have to worry about any odd taste on your food and it saves you time as well.


Using pork in spaghetti gives you the sweetness that most Filipinos kids love. You can try it with other dishes too!


Do you have picky-eaters at home? We’d love to know how you prepare your dishes for them. 


Happy eating!

Comedy Cartel aims to develop fresh stand-up comics by giving them a room/venue with a real audience to practice their materials and hone their comedic skills.

Relik even turned down 20 walk ins because the place is already a standing room. So if you wanna see the show, you better book your reservation as early as now. The Next leg will be on the 26th of July 2014. 


Comedy Cartel is known for producing good comedians like Alex Calleja (who was discovered by Tim Tayag and now writing for a Comedy show at ABS-CBN) and GB Labrador, one of the founders of Comedy Manila.
