ShEats: Pedro ‘n Coi

One Sunday I, together with my fiancée & my son went to SM North to eat dinner. Of course we looked for a restaurant where we haven’t eaten yet. What got our attention was Pedro ‘N Coi because of the cool waiter. We asked him “Nagtatanggap po kayo ng card? (Do you accept card payment?).” “Yes sir. We accept payments via card, master card. Kahit anong card wag lang SM advantage card. (Any kind o cards except for SM advantage card.)” he answered with a witty smile on his face, then we and the other waiter laughed. We checked the menu and noticed that it’s affordable and unique.

So, yes, we ate there. We thought it might be a cool place to eat. Well, we were right.

FOOD
What’s fun is that whenever they serve their best seller – Sizzling Sisig, the server will shout “SIZZLING SISIIIIIG!” and the rest of the staff will answer “AWWW!”… they have this type of ‘gimik’ for the other meals too. If you’ll read their menu, you’ll get so much entertained with how they named their food and beverages.

Most of the meals are good for sharing and I love the fact that they had fun creating names for their menu

I highly recommend Pudding ni Donya Buding. Unique and it taste great! It is a homemade bread pudding drizzled with caramel and crush candy peanuts, served with cheese ice cream.

AMBIANCE
The energy of the all of the staff are amazing, very friendly staff and they also joke around. The music inside is mostly 90s to 2000s OPM music. Which is great to hear, and it matches the resto’s theme.

Inside is a bit narrow and they have an area where you’ll sit inside a jeepney-like couch. They have delivered their concept very well with the interiors and designs.

It has a chill vibe, nostalgic and it’s family friendly.

Teresita’s at UP Town Center’s Grand Opening made more than 100 people happy

Teresita’s of San Fernando was developed from Teresita R. Razon’s Halo-halo and Palabok, which are the famous delicacies in Pampanga, in 2002. Teresita’s is managed by the sons of Teresita Razon,  Paulo and Ryan.

They recently made a hundred people happy by giving out free halo-halo during their new branch’s grand opening at UP Town Center last June 6, 2018 which started at 4  o’clock in the afternoon, featuring Mrs. Teresita Razon herself and members of her family.

Tere

If you are looking for delicious Filipino cuisine that serves breakfast meals all-day,  Teresita’s is the best place to go. Besides from the fact that it is easy to locate, the place is also very cozy. The interior design is very modern and popping which brings out the fun and youthfulness of the place which goes together with their accommodation.

Teresita’s of San Fernando is known for their Halo-halo that has Jackfruit, Macapuno strip, shaved ice and topped with big (compared to other restaurants) slices of leche flan.

Three of their best sellers are:

  • Palabok

Just by looking at it made me crave for more of their palabok. The noodles are cooked just right and those creamy sauce tasted good.

  • Kare-kare

You have to try their Kare-kare, it’s reallt delicious. I love how the vegetables are not over nor under cooked. The soup is not oily nor salty.

  • Beef Kaldereta

Their Kaldereta, I must say, is my favorite. The beef is perfectly cooked. It’s soft and you won’t have a hard time slicing the beef or chewing it.

Watch a snippet of the event here:

Gandia Street: Coffee or Wine? Or Dine?

Want to de-stress? I introduce you a great Chill Spot in Cavite City — Gandia Street; Coffee & Wine Bar.

As a gluttonous lady, I have eaten in loads of restaurants and tried unique food… And of course I always ask for their best seller, only to try if it’s worthy to be ‘The Best’. No, I don’t cook, but yes, I am hella choosy on what I ingest. So, anyway, I knew Gandia Street since it was established (year 2015) and I have never been disappointed with their service and their variety of food. So, I decided to make a review of G-Street.

I highly recommend this place. Why? Because they are consistent with the service and the quality of their food and beverages. 10/10 for me. Gandia Street is located in G Building, Covelandia Road, Brgy. Balsahan – Binakayan. Using waze? WAZE: G Building Covelandia Rd.

G Street is open 11 AM – 11 PM during Sundays until Thursdays, and operates at 11 AM – 12 AM every Friday to Saturday

Benefits of M2 Concentrated Tea Drink

Have you ever heard of M2 concentrated tea drink? Nature Earth sent me some of their products, and one of those are these M2 concentrated tea drink. Curious lady that I am, I researched about the drink and I will proudly share the important benefits of the drink based on what I researched and the details I got from Nature Earth.

We can easily determine its benefits just by reading the ingredients and the contents written on the bottle itself, but still, here’s my impression…

Benefits of M2 Concentrated Tea Drink

m2 (14)

Delicious breastfeeding diet for pregnant and nursing moms
Breastfeeding is very essential and beneficial for both mothers and babies, but on the other hand, requires a lot or work and tiresome. In order to keep adequate supply of breast milk, it is important for mothers to always stay hydrated. It means that nursing mothers need to drink a lot of liquid each day. But of course, mothers should be aware about the nutrition she’ll get from what she intakes to make sure quality milk is being produced for her baby. Don’t get me wrong, water is good, but it lacks nutritional content. M2 concentrated tea drink is considered as a suitable diet for breastfeeding mothers. Malunggay, okra and ginger are known low calorie vegetables which are great sources of calcium and healthy antioxidants for both mothers and babies.

Healthy source of nutrients for everyone
NatureEarth created M2 concentrated tea drink in 2011. It’s main ingredients are malunggay, okra and ginger. M2 provides us with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, potassium, calcium and although it is proven helpful in increasing the milk supply of nursing moms it is not made only for the breastfeeding moms or pregnant women. M2 can also be an alternate diet for health conscious people.

How to prepare M2 Malunggay

For more information about the product and other updates, please follow them on Facebook and visit their website. This refreshing healthy tea is available in all Robinsons Supermarkets and Andoks Litson Manok stalls.

Nature Earth’s Healthy Products

2 weeks ago I received a package from Nature Earth and here are the healthy products that I got from them.

I got 3 300ml bottles of M2 Concentrated Tea Drink and 2 packs of Kamote Chips with different flavors — Plain & Cheese Flavor

This is my first time trying out malunggay, okra & ginger together.. I thought the taste will come out as bitter with a little spice in it, I also thought the ginger will overpower the whole tea but I was wrong. Didn’t really expect it to be sweet and delicious, I am shookt… and I must say, it taste so good. What I love about M2 tea are its benefits for everyone especially for lactating mothers.

Also, thank you so much Nature Earth for sending me the Kamote Chips. OMG! I’m obsessed with potato chips and kamote is way better.. I like the cheese flavor more because (obviously) it has more flavoring that’s not loathsome. Oh, and the crispiness is consistent I left almost half full inside the fridge to check how long the crispiness will last, but since I can’t wait too long I ate it after 5days and it’s still crispy.

If y’all want to know more about their products, follow Naturearth & M2 Lactation Club on facebook and visit their website.

This refreshing healthy tea is available in all Robinsons Supermarkets and Andoks Litson Manok stalls.

Thanks for reading this post! Please do check my site for the Benefits of M2 Concentrated Tea Drink.

ShEats: Lord of the Ribs

Hey Sweeties! Here’s a delicious content for you.

On March 3, me and my best-friend, Mona, went to The Yard Street Food Cinema at Timog Avenue, Quezon City. The Yard is a food park that doesn’t only serve food but also entertainment. By the name itself, ‘Cinema’, they entertain customers by showing movies that was shown in cinemas before. What’s better than having a movie marathon while pigging out, nothing, right? And what’s better than eating ribs for pig out?
We ate at Lord of the Ribs. YASSSS! RIBS! I love eating ribs. Seriously, I get really disappointed whenever I see it on the menu in any restaurants and won’t be able to taste it, ’cause of it’s very expensive price.

Location:

DSC_0025

Lord of the Ribs is located at the 2nd floor of The Yard which is really a really good spot for a food park. First, it has a spacious parking lot, you won’t have a problem finding your a spot for your ride. Second, if you’re going to commute it is pretty easy to go to.

Ambiance:
I am impressed with the whole aura of The Yard. As I mentioned it’s a different type of food park. The Yard’s theme is ‘Cinema’, so you’ll get the whole vibe inside. It’s pretty chill even if it’s next to a main road. They got lots of food stalls, each with a different themed-specialty.

 

Lord of the Ribs’ theme is what? Duh? LOL! I love how witty their theme is and I might say, it won’t be the same without Gollum posing like he’s saying “My Precious… Ribs”, see what I did there? LOL! But, can we take a moment to appreciate the sign itself, ‘Lord of The Ribs by Migo’s’, amazing, am I right?

Food:
Mona and I met Mrs. Regine, the owner. She served us 4 of their best sellers, and that’s what I’m going to tackle here.

29063566_906135539559789_2358145836749160448_n
Me, Mona, Mrs. Regine, John’s Girlfriend & John
Short disclaimer; What I’ll say is completely based on my opinion and taste buds. I hope no one gets offended by my reviews. I just want to be honest to help you, readers, to know more about the brands, products and services. Back to the review.

First, they served us Rib Nachos that is sold for 160 pesos. Have you ever tried ribs on nacho cheese? Well, you got to. They switched ground beef into flakes of ribs steak. Unique, right? The quantity is just the right amount for its price, which is great.

 

I like nachos. This one is different they mixed melted cheddar with I’m not sure what the other cheese was. I love my nachos very cheesy in a ‘Nacho King way’. The nacho chips they used are really crunchy and it has no after taste.

Next on the menu is the Dynamite Ribs, 5-6 dynamites for 150 pesos. I don’t eat spicy food because it makes my lips swollen. But I wanted to taste this one because it looks very delicious. You can see how crunchy it is from the outside, and it’s drooling.

 

First try I wasn’t expecting that it won’t be spicy. It’s honestly delicious, I loved it so I ate one again, but I was not lucky the 2nd time. I was hella spicy for me but I still tried to finish it. That’s how tasty it is. Oh did I mention that they switched the ground beef into rib flakes again? Yep, they did. And it’s a great choice. I loved it.

Third, they served us the Family Baby Back Ribs. 3 sets of ribs with side dishes will cost you 680 pesos which is not a bad price considering how big and tasty it is. I can compare the taste of their ribs to a fine restaurant that I’ve tried before.

 

It’s all in the sauce and the way they cooked it, well done and tender. I love the ribs! I really did, except for the tomatoes (one of the side dishes) I think the tomatoes were overcooked without the intention of cooking it, for me it didn’t taste fresh but whatever, the important part of the dish are the ribs, and I am sure you’ll love it too. Seriously, you will. I enjoyed it. Infact, I was the one who finished the last rib that was left. Well, you know Pinoys, the ‘nagkahiyaan pa’ moments. LOL!

Last food they served was the Cheesy Ribs that has 7-9 rib sticks for 295 pesos. Like the Family Baby Back Ribs, the rib sticks are the delicious! Especially when you mix it with the melted 4 cheese.

 

Before eating it, they will cook it again using torch to somehow caramelize the cheese and to make the ribs juicier. I didn’t like the cheese solo, but I loved it when I ate it together with the rib sticks.

Service:
The crew is really nice and approachable. They served us with a smile, and I think that’s beautiful. The owner, Mrs. Regine is nice, sweet and bubbly.

Rates:

Snapshot_103
For me, the rates of their food are just right, it meets the quality and amount of the food that’ll be served.

We interviewed the Mrs. Regine about their business and if you are interested to know the history of Lord of the ribs watch the interview on my Youtube Channel.

Conclusion:
I really loved the location, the venue itself, their service, the whole management and their ribs. I definitely recommend Lord of the Ribs.

If you want to try their delicious ribs head over to their Stall at The Yard Street food Cinema, Timog Avenue.

For inquiries and other information, follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Tea Time: Camomile Flowers | Teekanne

Another day, another tea!

My Monday was nice but I was feeling a bit weak. Felt like I worked my ass off at Sunday night even though I didn’t. Felt so down so I got myself a cup of tea, randomly. And this is what I got.

27067358_881488522024491_2048844675474577370_n

Teekanne’s Camomile Flower Tea.

2018-01-11-111807482791

I noticed we have different flavors of Teekanne Tea – Camomile Flower, Ginger-Lemon, English Breakfast, etc.. They have the same packaging material. A thin semi-glossy paper. I’ve also tried drinking the Ginger-Lemon Flavor and I will describe that on another post, but anyway, I found out that they also have the same tea sachet material – a not so durable paper-like sachet. Well, don’t get me wrong it didn’t break when I soaked it, so it’s okay.. Through the thin sachet you’ll see the dried camomile. Though it’s a fair amount the scent isn’t strong. It almost smells like nothing just plain dried herbs. That’s not a bad thing, it’s actually a good thing. Smelling not much sent made me more curious about its taste. Well, like its scent, it doesn’t have a strong taste. It’s kinda like drinking a luke warm water with a lil’ bit herbs soaked in it. Really can’t describe the taste very well. It’s like something is there but you really can’t tell what it is.

 

I read the nutrition facts and it said it’s 100% All-Natural with no added sugars, artificial flavors or preservatives & it has zero calories. From now on I will always let you guys know about the tea’s nutrition facts, though I think it’s almost the exact same.. It’s tea. Duh?! haha…

So, as you all know (if you’ve read my other tea related posts) I always look up the brands online, and guess what, I found their website. It’s www.teekanne.at. As I was scanning their site, I read that “Teekanne” is German for “teapot”. Teekanne was established (if I’m not mistaken) on 1882 and exceeded the strict German Food Regulation standards. Isn’t that nice?

Anyway, back to the tea products… Teekanne has 5 original flavors — Camomile Flowers, Rosehip & Hibiscus Flowers, Peppermint, Mixed Fruit, & Fennel. What’s amazing is that they have bottled fresh fruit juice with different flavors. they have Wild Berry Lime, Hugo, & Pomegranate Peach. Not only that! They have different type of teas they have “tea desserts” that they call Sweeteas, tea capsules for NESPRESSO® coffee machine, wellness slimming teas an many more…

If you’re interested visit their website, or follow them on facebook and on instagram for more details.
