Mercato Centrale now in a better location in BGC

Mercato Centrale has officially moved to a new and more accessible location in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Now set up at the corner of 7th Avenue and 25th Street, foodies can now easily find it across The Forum and in front of the “Between  The Lines” art mural (or The Spaceman as it is more popularly known.

Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken and Sauce Bar, Capitol Commons

The Pasig Kapitolyo area has started to gain popularity for having quite a number of must-try restaurants and hole-in-the-wall foodie havens. Honestly, I’m already living in the East side of Manila and just in the town next to Pasig but I haven’t even scratched the surface, so to speak. Last week, I found the time to visit Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken and Sauce Bar in Capitol Commons, Pasig, and boy I’m glad I did!

It was lunchtime when I arrived and the place was already starting to get crowded with yuppies taking their lunch break. Capitol Commons’ close proximity to the offices along Shaw Boulevard and the Ortigas Business District explains this.

J.Coffee, an excellent way to start your day

People would normally associate J.Co only with its delicious and cleverly named donuts – that’s me included. When I enter a J.Co store, my ultimate agenda would be to buy boxes of its assorted treats which would include our ultimate favorites such as Alcapone, Avocado Dicaprio, Tiramisu, and the simple yet delish, Glazzy.

However, as its name implies, J.CO not only serves mouth-watering donuts but brews up cups of delicious coffee, as well, in the form of its “J.COFFEE” hand-crafted beverages. In Indonesia, where it’s originally from, J.Co is known as a lifestyle cafed that serves best-tasting coffee with delectable donuts. (Now, that explains why their donuts are not too sweet which we definitely love...

Fisherfarms Garlic Fish Longaniza

2015 proves to be Our Food Trip’s year! It’s just January, yet we already have so many food trips to write. And one of the many blessings that came early this year is the bag of goodies that arrived from Fisherfarms!

Part of our loot is a bag of this yummy Fisherfarms Garlic Fish Longaniza. Since we’re eating more healthy and less pork dishes, I was really happy to see that they have longaniza made of bangus (milkfish). It’s high-protein and low in cholesterol and fat at the same time which is best for a hypertensive like me.

So we had it early this morning and it was really good. Actually, the taste is similar to pork longaniza because there’s no fishy taste.  Surprisingly, its plant-based casing is still intact even after frying just like pork longaniza.
