Pintxos!

So high tech here! The server has an iPad where she punches in your orders which I assume goes to the kitchen and goes to the cash register

The food was really good

I wish they had more pintxos to choose from but whatever was there was delicious

Lights at Greenbelt 2

After our delicious merienda at NamNam, I took notice of the outside seating area of the restaurants in Greenbelt 2!  This has probably been in existence since it started but it’s only now I took notice of it.  As you walk down the row of restaurants, each place has a theme and with the theme comes different lighting :-)  I love how each one has its own unique identity

Mixies at The Beacon School Tech Fair 2014

Max, Annika and Gabbi preparing for the Tech Fair in their school

mixies-at-the-beacon-academy-tech-fair-2014-1.JPG

It’s a school project where they have to come up with a solution to a problem - hence a product which will answer that problem.  As I always say- a cookie is only good when it is freshly baked.  Buying cookies in boxes or in packages that has been sitting for more than a day will not justify the original goodness of the cookie.  So true enough Gabbi told me that they came up with Mixies which is an easy cookie mix which you can bake yourself and have the fresh cookies at your own time and convenience when you are ready to eat them!

The finished product!    With sister, Mischka as the mascot on the label :-)  It comes with the instructions.  It comes in white Chocolate chip cookie and Malted Milk cookies

Ready to go and sell!

We bought some and had them bake it for us so we could taste it and they made them bite sizes and it was so good!!!

Battle Brew

I met Mark Dee ( cell # 0917-538-3181 ) through Chef Alec Santos as they came by the house to inspect the kitchen.  Mark mentioned to me that he has this business called Battle Brew.  As he was explaining to me what it was all about, it sounded very familiar as I knew a few people following the same concept and have lost 30 pounds in 4 months

Mudge

Oh my gosh!!  Friends continue to make me fat! :-)  I received this cookies about a month ago from Tita Rosa and Drea!  It arrived still wet and warm, meaning freshly baked!  So I just had to have some and could not resist !!! And wow it was so yummy!!  I dissected the top layer ( there are two layers in a box ) to see if they all had fudge and the amount varied per piece.  One piece had a lot of caramel!!  It’s Belgian chocolate, caramel and sea salt!!  Call Lingling de Jesus at 0917-847-8343

Deep Fried Chorizo and Quesong Puti Lumpia! Everything is so good here!
namnam-3.jpeg

The main menu!  This is a menu that is so well thought of!  For those who always think they can cook Filipino food at home, it’s not really that easy! :-)  And NamNam made it even more complicated by giving more choices and more ways to make a dish!  I like it because it has the classics for maybe foreigners who want to try the classic Filipino dishes and for us Filipinos to have the classics with a twist! I want to try all the twists !!! :-)

namnam-menu-c.jpg

Not only that, you can choose the size!  When most Filipino restaurants come in big portions for sharing, Namnam allows you to order solo sizes in Small ( S ) to Medium ( M ) to Large ( L ) for family portions

I tried the Sinigang na Beef short rib and Watermelon that was a twist of sinigang na baby sa sampaloc.  And this is a home recipe of one of the owners, Eliza!

I had the classic house crispy sisig - YUMMY!!!!

It’s Wellworth The Wait

Last  month, I went to the blessing and soft opening of Wellworth in Ayala Fairview Terraces!  

its-wellworth-the-wait-41.jpeg

Wellworth was a brand started by my grandmother, Gliceria Tantoco.  It was a house brand in Rustan’s department store.  And now I am happy to see this revived into a bigger scale and into a full department store.  My Lola will always be alive and her spirit will reign in everything we do

 It’s a beautiful mall!!
