Baked Fried Chicken at Stackers Burger Cafe

Stackers Burger Cafe Eastwood

I wasn’t able to go out during the long weekend because of the many tasks I had to accomplish at home. After successfully completing all those, I wanted to reward myself with good food. Last Thursday, I found myself at Stackers Burger Cafe in Eastwood City.   It was my first time at this restaurant. As the name suggests, their main offerings are burgers. But what caught my attention was their Baked Fried Chicken, with 80% less oil. I was intrigued; it was the first time that I heard this kind of cooking. I gave it a try and had their 2 pieces variant with fries. They do offer the meal with rice and is also available in one piece meal.   While I wait for my order, I sipped on Strawberry Lemonade Float. It was a perfect cooler on a hot day, with indulgence on the side. When the ...

BPI Bankers Online App Landing Page

Talking to the bank about money matters can be intimidating. I personally found it challenging to talk to bank staff even when inquiring about opening an account. I’m sure it’s a lot scary to ask about various products and services. But with the power of the Internet, I can get some information at the comfort of my home. Unfortunately though, that information can sometimes be outdated or irrelevant to my situation. Now BPI is making sure that everybody gets accurate, relevant information through Bankers Online Facebook App. At the recent unveiling of this new service, I learned that BPI recognizes the fact that people, Filipinos in particular, finds it hard to talk to bank personnel.

Subic Got Clawed! ClawDaddy Opens at Harbor Point Mall

ClawDaddy Harbor Point Grand Opening

When the Philippine government converted the former US military base it into a freeport zone, Subic has been a traveler’s destination. With roughly 2-3 hours travel time from Manila, one can enjoy the many attractions it offers. On a rainy Saturday early this August, I found myself in this place once again. I was here several times already. I remember living in one of those basecamp where the American soldiers used to live. I experienced climbing up a 40 feet post in the Subic Extreme Adventure. Then I remembered having awesome dining experiences in restaurants I no longer remember the name. This time I found myself at the Harbor Point Mall, just in time for ClawDaddy‘s Grand Opening. I shared my first ClawDaddy experience before and it was really good. Here’s a chance to experience it again, I said to myself. It was mid-morning and so we decided to have ...

Chinese Dishes by the Dragon Chef

Dragon Chef Hearty and Hip Chinese Cuisine

Chinese cuisine has always been a part if the Filipino culture. Unlike other foreign dishes, we often encounter Chinese foods at home even on regular days. But naturally, these were already cooked the Filipino way. To really experience authentic Chinese cooking, one has to visit a restaurant. I happen to discover one at TriNoMa — Dragon Chef — Hearty and Hip Chinese Cuisine.Located at the 4th Level of TriNoMa in Quezon City, the restaurant is the newest baby of restauranteur Ricky Laudico and Chef Florabel. This is the same group behind SumoSam and RobotoSan and is quite a departure from their other restaurants. Aside from offering Chinese cuisine, the place is also small when compared to their other restaurants that I’ve visited. But that’s actually a good thing because then the service becomes more intimate and the place more quiet. For starters I tried theiri dimsums — Han Gao Shrimp ...
