Cheap Yummy Snacks - Potato Giant

You don't need to spend too much just to eat a tasteful snack.. I discovered a food stall named Potato Giant in the supermarket area of Megamall that sells processed potato products like fries and hash-browns, what I like about this food stall is that they sell their products cheaper than their competitor, it even surpassed the competitor's food taste.

Here are the snacks that I tried:

My First Professional Blogging Summit Experience #Dpop

As a newbie blogger, I felt happy when Ms. Janette Toral of DigitalFilipino invited me to join the 1st Professional Blogging Summit sponsored by DPop, which is collaboration made by Jeoff Solas and Janette Toral.  The event was organized so that the experienced bloggers can share their insights about managing their online identities, overcoming intrigues and how they offer their products and services. Honestly, this is my first time to attend an event like this and I felt so blessed because I got the chance to learn on how to blog responsibly, how will you expand your networks and also I became aware of the possible intrigues that I may encounter in the future.

Zomans at Akira: The Art of Sushi and Teppanyaki

Last Thursday (October 9, 2014) I was Invited for another foodie meet up by Zomato at Akira Shangrila Plaza. Akira is a teppanyaki restaurant where they feature the art of teppanyaki; a japanese artistic style of cuisine where they use iron griddle to cook food. Akira is named after a fictional character in Japan. He is legendary teppanyaki chef  who trained to fought a fire God kagutsuchi to save his beloved Sayuri, same as Akira PH  teppanyaki chefs who are also trained to showcase their teppanyaki skills to cook and entertain the guest.  

Akira offers premium items such as U.S. Tenderloin, U.S. Wagyu Rib-Eye, Japanese Wagyu and Kobe that can be served a la carte or a set that includes a miso soup, chicken, fried rice, shrimps and veggies but you can also order other Japanese dishes such as sushi, sashimi, ramen, tempura, tonkatsu and bentos!

Upon entering Akira, I got captivated by the interior design of the restaurant. I found out that there were already four branches of Akira in Metro Manila but the theme of every restaurant is unique, Here in Shangri-la the theme was modernized Japan while others have traditional.

Dinner with officemates at Kanto Freestyle Breakfast

As a typical Filipino we always look for a 24-hour open restaurants or eatery like the Lugawan, Tapsilugan and Sizzling but who would have thought that there is this kind of eatery in the metro that offers a cheap breakfast meal but has high sophistication when it comes to food plating. I actually saw it on TV while watching Rated K where they have been featured as an eatery that serves Filipino and American breakfast at a very cheap price! Yes very cheap like you can eat there even if you only have a hundred pesos in your wallet that is why it became one of the place that I wished I could dine at. 
So yesterday I became very vocal with my office mates about what are some restaurants that I want to try in Kapitolyo and I also included Kanto Freestyle Breakfast then luckily my supervisor knows the place and even suggested that we should dine there sometime but since I couldn't wait and I was very excited to try it, I asked some of my office mates if they want to eat there! haha and I became victorious on pursuing them.. We had our dinner there last night!

Food: Their house specialty is actually were New Zealand Beef Tapa, Vigan Longannisa and pancakes but sadly the tapa and longganisa was not available because it was sold out already. Truly their foods were really yummy and affordable and I want to come back here to try another set of foods. 

So here are some of the foods I tried:

Fridate at Mad Mark's Creamery and Good Eats

So I crave for a steak and then I remember that my friend told me about Mad Mark's. He said that this restaurant offers an appetizing steaks for a very affordable price that's why my boyfriend and I decided to have dinner at Glorietta 5 branch together with my best friend. 
Upon seeing the restaurant I learned that the queuing is really a box office so we make a reservation first and guess what?! We were on the 21st spot wait listed customers at 8 o clock in the evening. I was really surprised that people were really patient to wait just to eat there that's why I became more curious and more encouraged to taste the foods there.
So like others we waited patiently, well you don't have to stay there and wait because they will get your name and digits to personally call you, so you can still stroll in the mall.  
After one and a half hour of waiting we were able to dine in!  Well I don't recommend this place for people who are really hungry because you will get impatient of the queuing but it's a good idea to make reservation first before strolling in the mall so when you finish buying your things or doing your business there you can just dine there or you'll just have to wait a little.  

So this is our orders, we requested for a three extra plates so we can share our foods.
