Samgyupsalamat Unlimited Korean BBQ Restaurant Opens in San Juan

Samgyupsalamat, one of the original purveyors of unlimited Korean bbq in the country, has finally opened another branch in San Juan. Samgyupsalamat has been operating since 2012, but it was only until last weekend that I get to dine in one of its branches. Finally, another option for Korean bbq around San Juan. 

The restaurant is located at the 2nd floor of Metro Pointe Center along P.Guevarra. (same building as Rustan's Supermarket and Nathaniel's Bakeshop)

We used to frequent Sodam for unlimited korean bbq, but it's always hard to get a table especially during weekends. Plus, even though they have a wide array of cooked dishes, they only have plain pork and beef choices for grilling. Finally, here comes a new player offering more meat selections. 

There are 2 options for unlimited bbq at Samgyupsalamat:

Unlimited 1- 5 kinds of pork  (P399 for 11am-3pm, P449 for 3pm-2am)
Unlimited 2- 9 kinds of pork + beef (P449 for 11am-2pm, P499 for 3pm-2am)

Real California Milk Recipe: Three Cheese Pesto Chicken Meltwich #LookForTheSeal

I was never the milk drinking type of kid back in the days. In fact, I'd always choose a glass of water instead of milk during my preschool years. My mom would always sneak milk to my diet from chocolate cereal breakfasts and chocolate milk drinks, to yogurt drinks, ice candies and milkshakes. It was basically a struggle to have me drink a pure glass of fresh milk. 

Growing up, I slowly learned to appreciate milk and other dairy products. Cream-based dishes became one of my favorite food, ice cream and milkshakes became my go-to desserts, and cheese became my best friend. While other people say everything tastes better with butter, I say everything tastes better with cheese..and butter.

ItsBeryllicious Travels: Bridal Shower in Guam, USA (June 10-13, 2017) #HereGuamTheBrides

Last December two of my high school friends finally tied the knot with their significant others. This post has long been overdue, but finally I was able to write about it now and dedicate this post to them.

June last year, I went to Guam with my high school barkada for an exciting getaway and surprise for our bride-to-be friends. After Korea, Hong Kong, and Cambodia, finally, JabbsnMills goes to the US! (even though it was just 4 hours away)

Took advantage of a seat sale from Cebu Pac, and were able to score round trip tickets for only P4200!

We arrived at A.B. Won Pat International Airport around 10am, picked up the car from the rental, and went for early check-in at Bayview Hotel in Tumon.

First order of business: Lunch at Meskla Dos for some chamorro fusion burgers and bbq.

Ampalaya Plus Herbal Food Supplement: Diabetes Awareness Campaign March-April

If you ask me what my least favorite vegetable is, I would say ampalaya. The bitter aftertaste just never grew on me. But putting its taste aside, I know for a fact that ampalaya is one of the healthiest and most nutritious vegetables there is. Ampalaya is most popular for treating diabetes, as it can help normalize blood sugar levels. 

Good thing there is Ampalaya Plus, an herbal dietary supplement in capsule form, that contains Bitter Gourd (ampalaya), Lagerstroemia Speciosa (banaba), and Turmeric (luyang dilaw). These three superfood herbs are essential in lowering bad cholesterol, boosting immune system, and fighting diseases and complications.
