“Are you man enough?” was the resounding question posed by Burger King Philippines to all those men AND women out there who are brave enough to take on its newest burger offering, BK Stacks, and vie for the BATTLE OF THE STACKS KING title.
BK Stacks is Burger King’s made-to-order burger where anyone can choose 1, 2, 3, or 4 flame-grilled beef patties for their burgers! The BK Stacks is made even more satisfying with melted American cheese in between and crispy bacon on top, a generous smothering of the special BK Stacks sauce, and all held together by a toasted sesame-seed bun. Your manhood is tested by how many BK Stacks you can handle. A Single Stack is labeled as a “Dude”. Have a Double Stack and you’ll be known as the “Boss”. A Triple Stack promotes you to someone people look up to—the “Chief”! And last but definitely farthest from the least is the Quad Stack, a burger only fit for the “King”!
I think I have already written about my boys’ love for Japanese food a number of times already. Japanese food in our family is always considered as a special treat because I don’t usually prepare Japanese food at home. Rap usually orders torikatsu (Japanese for chicken cutlets). Now, there’s no need to rush to a Japanese resto just so he can fulfill his katsu craving because Bounty Fresh now has Top Torikatsu.
See this gorgeous plate I prepared for the boys for dinner…

Back when we were still living in Makati and Rap was in Prep at the Don Bosco Technical Institute, we would always dine at Amici de Don Bosco. I never got to eat there for lunch because the place would always be full of office workers taking their lunch break. Usually, I would have merienda there with other soccer moms while we wait for our boys to finish their training. Those were such happy times! Their pizza and pasta were my comfort food. The year was 2006.
Fast forward to 2013, the once quaint Italian “carinderia” has now grown to include 7 more branches around the metro under the management of the father and son team of Danny and Philip Moran. Even after acquiring the business from the Salesian priests who set up and managed the restaurant in 2007, the Morans continue to maintain the friendship by supporting Tuloy Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization founded by Salesian priest, Fr. Rocky Evangelista. In fact, Php 10 from the sales of items listed in the “Tuloy Speciali” Amici Menu goes directly to the foundation to help fund their projects.
In celebration of their 6th year in the business, Amici recently introduced 10 new dishes to their menu. Prepare to drool as I tempt you with these food shots!
