Jollibee: Longganisa Meal

What a way to start a day by having a hearty breakfast. But in my case, since I’m currently on graveyard shift. What a way to end a day by having Jollibee Longganisa Meal for breakfast, a combination of garlic rice, fried egg and mildly seasoned Longganisa with drink of your choice.

What I like in Jollibee’s garlic rice is the fact that it has little amount of oil on it. The egg is not actually fried, for me it looks like that it was boiled out of the shell. The Longganisa, perfect for my taste, I like the sweet, salty combination. The texture of Jollibee’s Longganisa is like hotdogs which in a way, I like. But still nothing compares with the traditional longganisa from the market.

Until the next foodtrip. Keep on eating.

Home Cooked: Spaghetti and Lumpiang Shanghai

It’s already three weeks since my girlfriend and I moved to a new apartment near our office. Since then, I’m looking forward every weekend to go home and taste my mother’s dishes, which I really miss. Since most of the time we are stuck with canteen food every weekday, the home cook dishes of my mother is like seasonal dishes that can be served once in a blue moon.

These are the specialty of my mother that I really miss. Since these are cooked only every time that there is an occasion in our home.
Spaghetti and Lumpiang Shanghai
I really miss the blend of sweet and sour taste of her Spaghetti. Perfectly cooked noodles. Not soggy, but aldente. The chunks of hotdog and ground beef. Partnered with Lumpiang Shanghai that is crispy in the outside and juicy in the inside. Thinking of it while writing this makes me crave more. Will definitely request this for this weekend’s mirienda. :)

Until the next foodtrip. Keep on eating.

Tutti Frutti: Frozen Yogurt

One of my girlfriend’s favourite desserts is frozen yogurt. I’m not a fan of yogurt when I was a kid, for me it tastes like sour milk. But with the flavoured yogurt currently available in the market, I’ve learned to appreciate this healthy snack.

Tutti Frutti is one of the yogurt parlor that we’ve tried. At Tutti Frutti, you will be given a paper bucket to fill with frozen yogurt. Then you have to choose from a wide variety of toppings that ranges from fresh fruits, candies and rice crispies. After you fill your bucket, it will be weigh to determine how much you will be paying. Fair enough.

Here is the bucket of frozen yogurt topped with peaches and kiwi slices that my girlfriend enjoyed during our stay at Tutti Frutti.

Yogurt is not just a delicious snack, it has great health benefits. It is an excellent source of protein, calcium, riboflavin and vitamin B 12. When yogurt is compared to milk, yogurt contains more calcium and protein because of the added cultures in the yogurt.

Until the next foodtrip. Keep on eating.

Reyes Barbeque: Boneless Chicken Barbeque

Chicken is my all time favourite meat. That is why I’m posting one of my favourite chicken dishes. From Reyes Barbeque, it’s their Boneless Chicken Barbeque. For 120 pesos you’ll get a quarter of Chicken Barbeque, Java Rice, Atchara (pickled young papaya) and their Special Peanut Sauce.

Boneless Chicken Barbeque
The meat of the chicken is very tender, and the taste, I can say that it very well marinated because even the inner part of the meat has it special barbeque taste. The best part is the Special Peanut Sauce that only Reyes Barbeque has. It really compliments the taste of the Chicken Barbeque. The Special Peanut Sauce is a combination of sweet, salty and peanut buttery taste.

I’m sure the most of you already tried eating at Reyes Barbeque. For those that haven’t tried yet, I guarantee you that you will enjoy this fine Chicken Barbeque.

As what they say in Reyes Barbeque: “Barbeque. Peanut Sauce. Java Rice. Best way to go!”

Until the next foodtrip. Keep on eating.

Starting All Over Again

I started this blog last year to post reviews of foods that I’ve tried. Last time that I updated this blog was exactly one year ago. I browsed my collection of food pictures that I supposed to post in this blog, but because time does not permits me to, this pictures piled up in my computer. After browsing, one thing comes to mind.

I decided to re-launch this food blog of mine. I’m not good in writing things, but I will try my best to describe the taste and share the experience every time I post something here.

So to start, here is a picture of the Lechon we had in our family reunion last January.
I decided to make this my first post because as a Filipino, Lechon is a symbol of feast. And that exactly what I want this blog to be.

Until the next foodtrip. Keep on eating.
