Holy Smokes BBQ

 The brisket loving hubby is on the continuous lookout for good brisket which brings us to Holy Smokes BBQ in PoblacionHoly Smokes BBQ (2) Holy Smokes BBQ (3) Holy Smokes BBQ (4) Holy Smokes BBQ (5)Holy Smokes BBQ (1)

We went to @holysmokesbbqph this afternoon and so lucky to see all handsome ? and hardworking owners there!! Carlo ( Toot Toot) Limjuco, Chef Red Espiritu &
Juano Guitierrez who are the guys behind the food and Paolo Quimson @paoloquimson When they are there you will see them all working including serving the sides, busing the tables and just helping where needed. Holy Smokes BBQ

My tip is to go as soon as it opens at 5pm so you get first dibs of the meats after they come out of the smoker and it’s not crowded for Titas like me :-)  Congrats guys and more power ! #holysmokesbbqph #bbqforthesoul #H2HPeople

Holy Smokes BBQ (6) So happy the owner, Toot Toot, was there when we arrived with his tall son! :-)Holy Smokes BBQ (20) Holy Smokes BBQ (7) Holy Smokes BBQ (8) Holy Smokes BBQ (9) Holy Smokes BBQ (17)Holy Smokes BBQ (10) Holy Smokes BBQ (11)  Literally Holy Smokes at Holy Smokes! @holysmokesbbqph Wagyu Brisket!! Chef Red Espiritu ( who is a teacher also at Chef Gene Gonzales’ Culinary school ) explains. They open at 5pm since they smoke their meats from midnight for 14 hours!! The hubby is obsessed with brisket and he’s so picky and I’m happy this passed his standards.   I like it too!!! Yum!! #HolySmokesBBQPh #H2HBBQ #BBQForTheSoul

( Toot Toot is the guy that brought in Crocs to the Philippines in 2004!  ) Another yummy Holy Smokes at @holysmokesbbqph is the Chicken. Smoked is healthier than grilled FYI and it tastes so much better and much more tender. Half a chicken for P320.00 and the sauce is so good too. This chicken has 11 spices and smokes for 10 hours #holysmokesbbqph #H2HChickenHoly Smokes BBQ (26) Holy Smokes BBQ (27) Holy Smokes BBQ (28) Holy Smokes BBQ (29)C lick below to go to their Facebook page

Taste.Company opens up a new chapter this 2017

Taste CompanyBistro RJ Taste company

by being the promoter of inspiring stories of goodwill.Taste CompanyTaste.Company Media, the social enterprise and education arm of Taste Company Foundation, will cultivate “a taste for the good” — in every person, community, or local enterprise’s story as shared by its contributors.

Its “Social Responsibility” section will serve to spread the word about the CSR projects of big and small brands found locally.

Stephen Dee Young, publisher of Taste.Company and Taste Company Foundation envisions this for the site:

Taste COmpany Stephen Young

“Our direction is to look for social responsibility on initiatives being done by individuals and also by corporations, that addresses the requirement of the society.

“We’re hoping that as the word goes out it will inspire heartfelt meaningful intentions and initiatives moving forward.”Taste Company 2Taste Company 4

Nina Tan, Editor-in-Chief of Taste.Company shares:

“Ever since Taste.Company started last May 2016, we’ve always given relevance to social responsibility. The idea of making it our core only came when we realized how much individuals, brands and companies out there give back in their own ways. This inspired us to become their partner in spreading awareness, charity and love through the power of writing.”

Nina Yuson Vicki Abary

With a team of contributors that hail from different backgrounds, Taste.Company gives lifestyle a fresh outlook by focusing on “stories with a heart”, although they also dish out mainstream lifestyle articles that will surely keep us updated.
