#TasteCavite in Island Cove’s special “Taste Cavite” menu

Living in Rizal for almost a decade now, we seldom visit Cavite, let alone, go on a food trip in the province. So when Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park in Kawit invited me to try their new menu, I was ecstatic to  give it a go! I am not really familiar with the specialties of the province but I was sure that it would not only taste good but colored with the Cavite’s rich heritage.  And this is precisely what Island Cove’s “Taste Cavite” menu would like to showcase to its patrons. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday starting November 18 and daily starting December 22, 2016, this special menu will be available at the hotel’s Fishing Village.

Authentic Singaporean food at My Singapore Food Street

When I first visited Singapore in 2004, I wasn’t really able to enjoy going around the city and dine in the famous hawker centers. I was just there for a night, a quick side trip that I made before going back to Manila from a business trip. So there’s still this craving for authentic Singaporean food inside me that’s still waiting to be filled.

My Singapore Food Street

Located at the 2nd level Bridgeway of SM Megamall, My Singapore Food Street, is the newest restaurant in town offering its customers a taste of authentic Singaporean food. The restaurant is a partnership of business entrepreneur Jean Henri Lhuillier and Asian TV personality/celebrity chef Vivien Tan.

Chill and grill with Dowell Grill Express

Our family loves eating grilled food. I prefer grilled over fried but sometimes, grilling can be a hassle. I hate being the one to fire up the grill because that could mean frantically fanning the charcoal and inhaling all the smoke. I bet you don’t like that either. Fortunately,  we can still have an enjoyable barbecue with the family minus the stress with the new Dowell Grill Express.

Tamerlane’s Ihaws

Being in close proximity to Antipolo, our family would often drive up the steep road that leads us to this pilgrimage city. One of the many things that we love about it, aside from its resorts, is the variety of places that would interest foodies like us. Our latest discovery is Tamerlane's Ihaws, a small carinderia that serves affordable grilled food.
