Lunch is Delivered via Foodie.ph: Casa Inasal

Aside from being a blogger, what keeps me busy nowadays is my day job as a field nurse. My work requires me to travel daily in and out of the metro, where our medical team performs the scheduled annual physical examination of different companies. Certainly, our day to day work basis is strenuous but having your friends with you at work wouldnt completely bother us with stress and exhaustion.

Last Saturday, our medical team was assigned somewhere in San Juan City. Knowing our team effort has proven to be excellent. I decided to treat them the gastronomic way! With my little surprise plan, I was able to execute it with the help of the newest online delivery in the metro: FOODIE.PH


FOODIE.PH invited me to try out their services. Being a loyal fan of online deliveries, surely I gave it a try! The ordering experience is so easy and very simple to use. What I particularly liked about it us how I can customize my ordering options by adding additional notes, and I can have the option to tip the delivery man! After a few minutes after processing my order, a nice man called me to confirm my order! Very convenient and easy!


Casa Inasals delivery site required me to order a day ahead and I was impressed that it was delivered to us the next day just in time for lunch! Perfect timing! The packaging was supported well enough so no spillage at all.



I am a particular person when it comes to my chicken, and having it cooked the inasal way is one of my favorite. My chicken should be juicy and flavorful enough not only in the skin but also with its meat. And Casa Inasal has proven that to me, so they made it to my favorite list! Casa Inasal boasts in their traditional way of grilling their chicken and truth be told, we were super satisfied and surprised how flavorful it is! The chicken is grilled to perfection!




Their liempo is amazing! It has this distinct taste that makes it flavorful enough. Marinated well and grilled just in the right time to achieve a very juicy meat!

A meal would not be complete without desserts! Initially, I ordered Puto Manapla from the Foodie.ph website menu but they informed me that its not available within the week. The day when I expect my order to arrive, someone from Foodie.ph called me again to inform me the available desserts, added it with my order and lo! I got my Special Turon with langka! I dont know if this is an error with Casa Inasals side or not but I also got a free biko! Yay! Free or not, thank you very much, Casa Inasal! The turon and biko has just the right sweetness to cap off our meal!


My friends all thanked me enough for my wonderful treat for them! Sure enough, this wouldnt be my last time ordering online using FOODIE.PH since they have numerous partner restaurants around the metro! Give Foodie.ph a try and surely you'll be amazed with their fast and easy services!

A sweet treat for moms at Cafe 1771


From the smooth and velvety to the sweet cakes without the guilt, Café 1771 presents its homespun cake creations that will surely make mom feel special. From the petite cake to a festive cake size portions for the whole family, these cakes are perfect for the family’s celebration table.

If thinking of a dessert that will signify love and admiration, Rose Noire (P250 net) is a delightful surprise, especially for someone who’s a certified chocolate lover. Lavish layers of Valrhona dark chocolate with hazel nut praline that sits on a crunchy crust, this chocolate-loaded creation also comes with a surprise at the center: a croquantine for some crunch and dark chocolate flavor with a distinct praline taste.
For something that can make anyone dive right in, Evasion (P270 net) gives this promise: an evasive combo of white and dark chocolates with cream cheese and fresh strawberry in a lightly crispy feullentine at the center. What’s more to love? It’s not too sweet and amazingly creamy.

Light, pillowy and comes with a nutty center, the Gianduja Truffle Mousse (P250 net) combines the dark and white chocolate praline flavors.  Structured with elements that will surprise the palate, its sweetness comes from the base made of chocolate sponge then followed by marshmallows with cashew nuts and topped off with chocolate mousse as a velvety finish.


And who wouldn’t want the 1771 Group of Restaurants signature dessert, the sugar-free coffee pie (P220 net)? An epic recipe from the family of Executive Chef Vicky Rose-Pacheco for over twenty years, the addicting secret is in the crisp texture of the combined flavors of Dutch cocoa and coffee with cashew nuts. And with no bells and whistles or outré ingredients, this version is sweetened with coconut sugar and lightly dusted with cocoa for an awfully memorable dessert minus the guilt.

A good cake not only serves as a delightful centerpiece—the very presence of it on the table marks a celebration itself. For an extra touch of something dreamy and decadent to make mom feel special, give these mini cakes as a surprise, guaranteed to communicate your love. For advance orders, call 631-7340.

ETON IS launched International Primary Curriculum



Last April 13 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, Eton International School launches a new teaching method which is currently used globally, the International Primary Curriculum or IPC. Since its launch in the United Kingdom 13 years ago, it helped a lot of failing British schools using this new teaching method which his based on socially-relevant themes. As Eton International School formally launches IPC in the Philippines, Eton expects it to gain ground in the country, making them the first IPC school here.




The launch last April highlights the symposium entitled “Think Global, Start Young, Start Now. A Symposium for Parents and Educators.” With one of the most sought after speakers, IPC London Regional Manager, Katie Fitch.


Fitch is an IPC practitioner-trainer who has a wealth of practical experience gained from her 13 years of IPC work in European and Asian academic Institutions. Since 2000, she has been providing training and support to schools implementing the IPC, as well as staff professional development.

WHAT IS IPC?
IPC is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum designed to achieve three goals for personal, academic, and international learning. It covers over 80 different thematic units of learning, which are considered to be child-friendly and modern-day topics appealing to all ages of primary children.

IPC is learning based on a theme. For example, if the topic is a bout rainforest, you learn rainforest from different aspects such as English, Geography, Science, History and Arts. 


Learning in IPC takes a global approach to develop „international-mindedness‟ among students. It helps children to connect their learning to where they are living now, as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries.

The engaging approach of IPC also encourages parental involvement as children, inspired by their learning, talk freely to parents and family members about what they have done at school and often, choose to continue their learning at home. 



“The Filipino child of the 21st century deserves a curriculum that will enhance his personal development and international-mindedness. In learning, the child has to be both engaged and connected with a global of community of learners,” said Eton President Dr. Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino.

Chuck's Deli - of slabwich and Mother Chucker!

Being late is never a good thing, especially when you're missing a lot of good talk with good friends and of courseee, good food!! Running late from a meeting with a client, I hurriedly went to The Fort, BGC at Taguig City to make my way down to Chuck's Deli. Home of the famed Slabwich, I am so excited to try them out!



From the nice interiors to the cleverly named sandwiches, Chuck's Deli is just too awesome not to try them out!



So, like what I said, arriving late has never been good because you'll be missing out a lot of good stuff. My group (who were there on time, of course) had their fair share of stories of cool humble beginnings of Chuck's Deli to the ingredients used to the Buffy Slabwiches challenger stories. When I arrived, I just ordered whatever I found appetizing at the menu and have a quick chat with everybody else.

Eyeing the menu, what piqued my interest is their Faking Duck | Php195 for half slab, Php345 for a whole slab --- a Peking-style inspired slabwich, this is just yumminess to goodness! A right mix of roast pork, lettuces, leeks, crispy noodles and drizzled with hoisin sauce, this just won my heart! I ordered a half slab of this but I was downright full up to last bite. Meat is just tender and the sauce is just right, not overpowering the other ingredients.




Perfect for the summer heat and probably just to quench my thirst, I ordered Rootbeer Float | Php99 -- from their menu, they described it as their A&W rootbeer with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Unfortunately at that time, they ran out of rootbeer so they asked if I want their alternative Sarsi Float. It tasted good, but as a fan of the A&W Rootbeer float, I must say I need to get back to Chuck's Deli and have another try to redeem myself.



Luckily that night, a group from another table wants to take the Slay the Buffy Challenge!  The objective is to finish their Buffalo Chicken Slabwich in just less than 5 minutes! That's a real woah because seeing their slabwiches makes me groan on how big it is! That's just too much for my pit so I'm not taking any challenges like that, LOL!

The Reward?
The buffy for free, a challenge winner t-shirt and your name written at their hall of fame board, and maybe just enough bragging rights to show off your friends how truly a master slayer you are, with the Buffy slabwich, of course.

But bravo to these young men who took the challenge, they may not be able to finish it off under 5 minutes, but for experience and fun they manage to have a happy stomach while devouring a yummy slabwich! Yum!




Lookie at the size of this slabwich! Meet your challenge, Slay the Buffy!
Will you be the next challenger and have your name written here? (Serendra branch)

Another challenge is called the Mother Chucker Challenge | Php295 -- let me do a rundown of the ingredients here: tomato, cucumber, onions, arugula, cheese, bacon, chicken salad, eggs, mustard, mayo and smoked ham. Too much? If not then just take down the challenge! What you'll have is you have the Mother Chucker for free, a  250peso worth of Chuck's Deli gift certificate plus your name will be written on their hall of fame board for bragging tights!



Chuck's Deli is just so awesome to not try them out, really. The fun experience while dining here just won everyone's heart. So take your hungry pit to Chuck's Deli and let their slabwiches and more get you!

Doggie's Mexican Chow: affordable and delicioso!

I'm such a huge fan of anything Mexican! When I was younger, my family and I usually go to this small Mexican fastfood along Makati Avenue called Miggy's. Famous for its chimichangas, nachos and tacos, my love for hot and zesty onions and tomatoes all started there! When their Makati branch closed down sometime in early 2000s, nothing lives up to my expectations same as what Miggy's offered.

Fast track to 2013, a blogger friend of mine, Aldous Calubad invited me for a food tasting event at Burgundy Corporate Tower located at Makati City. He told me not to expect something grand or anything since we are visiting a food stand only. I have nothing against that, I'm after with how I'll experience the food afterwards. Truth be told, this food stand deserves their own place!!! =)



Doggie's Mexican Chow! FYI: not for pooches, for human gustation only.

Doggie's Mexican Chow is the brainchild of partners in life, Angel Kho and Fredrik Spangler. Their love for Mexican food has made them venture out into the business world by putting up a food cart.

Why Doggie's?

There's a story behind it. Angel grew up with a love for cute stuffed animals. She had this cute little  stuffed dog eversince. She said that whenever she's too stressed out or something, a little hug to her cute stuffed dog will take it all away! That is why she wants to share the comfort by putting up a good comforting food through Doggie's Mexican Chow!



Angel and Fred wanted an authentic Mexican servings at an affordable price which is kind of difficult to find here in the Philippines. A food cart is a good start for their business plans in the future.

THEIR MENU


First on our table is their colorful and appetizing Nachos. Oozing with melted cheese, tomatoes and ground beef can't make me stop munching on this!



Another fave of mine are their Potato Wedge Supreme. Fried until golden brown and until it reached its right crispiness, drizzled with yummy melted cheese, tomatoes and ground beef is just perfect!


Their Chicken and Steak Quesadillas are to die for!! This soft shelled tacos is just cheesy up to the last bite! Oooh I really want more of this!!



Yummy and cheesy Soft Tacos with a twist! Inside are your usual lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, ground beef and all. They added mangoes in it for added sweetness. 



Their Crunchy Hard Shell Tacos is just delicious! Infused with a lot of cheese, ground beef, lettuces and sour cream really made me drool!



A Mexican treat will not be complete without a fabulous burrito! Their Burrito (Chicken and Steak) is just perfect for your hungry pit. One big wrap of this surely will go a long way. I had mine in half but I was already full! In the future, they're planning on using yellow rice instead of the white rice for more flavor and more appetizing looking.



Last but not the least! Something sweet would cap the night off. Their lovely Champurrado is just awesome! With added flavors of cinnamon and vanilla makes the traditional more wonderful and savory to taste!


So whenever you're around Makati CBD, do drop by at Burgundy Corporate Tower and have a visit at Doggie's Mexican Chow! Don't worry, Angel and Fred are planning on branching out the soonest so you'll see more of them in the future!

There’s Plenty of Fish in the Sea at Sentro 1771


Sentro 1771 presents seafood dishes that will surely find a home to your family’s repertoire of top picks whether you’re aiming to be healthy or simply finding comfort from your all-time favorite seafood choices. Guaranteed low in saturated fat, these dishes are not only irresistible, they’re also good for the heart. 



At Sentro 1771, tasty definitely means healthy too especially if you’re having smoked milkfish spring rolls (P270) which could serve as a filling and satisfying appetizer or entree. A festive combination of smoked milkfish, salted egg, mustard greens, onions and tomato that are rolled like spring rolls, it’s served with slightly tangy vinaigrette for some zing. An explosion of color, texture, and balance of flavors, it’s a lip smacking dish minus the guilt.




Equally-appealing and filled nothing but goodness of the sea, seafood sinigang sa miso (P250) is a classic favorite minus the meat but never lacking with mouthwatering elements such as gindara, milkfish, and shrimps seasoned with miso for more depth and flavor. Good food begets fresh and all-natural ingredients, and that’s the promise of this dish. It’s spirited, chunky, and heartwarming especially that the broth is made from scratch. Plus, it has chockfull of colorful diced veggies from tomatoes, okra, taro corms, daikon, water spinach, and eggpplant stewed in tamarind. And as a charming signature tradition, you get the chance to adjust the level of sourness of the soup by sipping and tasting it before serving.




Fried usually gets a bad rap as something calorie-laden, but not Sentro 1771’s Rated GG or galunggong (grilled mackerel scad, P230 and P445). Yes, fried healthy food does exist at Sentro 1771 as this dish is fried in olive oil, filleted and generously sprinkled with toasted bits of garlic. Executive Chef Vicky Rose Pacheco not only takes pride in creating another certified Sentro 1771 original, the lowly fish was a given a rightful and impressive reputation considering galunggong is a rich source of protein and zinc. 


If your family is in for smart eating, count on Sentro 1771 in satisfying you with something healthy and tasty too.  There’s nothing quite anything else like a brown rice that can make a marvelous pair with these amazing, healthy choices, so it’s a good thing that Sentro 1771 has this in the menu.  So whether you’re a healthy eater or seekers of all-natural whole foods, find these Sentro 1771 dishes indulgent, never leaving behind the taste and joy of eating while bringing a new appreciation for something deliciously low-calorie.


Sentro 1771 in Greenbelt 3 is open from 11am to 11pm (Monday to Sunday) while Serendra is from 7am to 10:00 pm (Sunday to Thursday) / 7am to 11:00pm (Friday to Saturday). For inquiries and reservations, call Sentro Greenbelt 3 (02) 757 3941 or Sentro Serendra (02) 856 0581.
