I think it was a month ago when I first read about Anthony Bourdain‘s raves for Jollibee’s Amazing Aloha. The feature was shot in a branch of Jollibee in California for the show, Parts Unknown. Then I realized, I miss the Amazing Aloha! When was the last time I had one? I can’t even remember.
Online petitions were then started for Jollibee to bring back the Amazing Aloha. A Facebook page, with 5K+ likes as of this writing, was even set up to urge Jollibee to bring the Amazing Aloha back. Lo and behold, those who crave for Jollibee Amazing Aloha have prevailed.
Finally, after 4 long years, Jollibee is bringing back the Amazing Aloha! It will be available in all Jollibee stores nationwide starting tomorrow, May 15, 2013!
A bite-after-bite delight of two juicy burger patties, crispy bacon bits, cheese, and lettuce, doused in honey mustard dressing, topped with a fresh slice pf pineapple, and sandwiched between two soft buns, the Amazing Aloha is a uniquely extraordinary burger experience that is amazing in every bite!
I’m a certified coffee addict! I can’t start my day without coffee and I also have a coffee break before my day ends. It’s actually weird how the rich aroma of a steaming mug of coffee can relax me and, at the same time, keep me alert. I love coffee, period. My husband’s a different story, though. He’s hyperacidic and has problems drinking too much coffee. There are even days that he won’t drink coffee just so his tummy won’t get acidic. Thanks to Kopiko L.A. Coffee, we now both enjoy drinking coffee without worrying about hyperacidity.
Last week, we harvested our first batch of home-grown labanos (radishes). Of course, we were so excited at first that almost every meal we had had fresh labanos salad until each of us didn’t want to even smell a single radish, LOL!
This was the Instagram shot I took before we pulled out the radishes.
Nothing beats fresh and organic veggies!
We obviously had excess radish and the boys didn’t want to eat a single radish anymore. But I didn’t want it to go to waste and I thought, well if they don’t see the radish, they’ll eat the dish. What better way to hide radishes in a dish than to make burgers! Anyway, I already tried mixing in turnips and carrots when I make burger patties or lumpiang shanghai filling so I knew it would work. To make the burgers yummier for ulam, I then thought of mixing the grilled burger patties with mushroom gravy.
And so, my very own creation, Labanos Burger Steak, was born!

Tired of the usual lumpia? Here’s a new spring roll recipe courtesy of the NESTLÉ Cream Facebook page. Rapi loved it so much that Dadi only got to eat one roll, LOL! He said it’s a cross between chicken curry and cheese sticks which are his favorites.

250g chicken breast, minced
1 8g pack of Maggi Magic Sarap
1 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
