Around the World with Dad's World Buffets in SM Megamall

Even before Yakimix, Sambokojin, Vikings and Buffet 101, there was Dad's Ultimate Crossover Buffet. When our family would celebrate special occasions and decides to have a buffet dinner, there's no other place but Dads/Saisaki/Kamayan. 

If you think that Dad's three-global cuisine buffet is already the best they could offer to the Filipinos, wait until you try their newest concept that brings together multiple cuisines from Asia, Europe, North and South America- Dad's World Buffet.

It's been a while since my last visit at their Megamall branch and I was more than excited to finally go back for an ultimate culinary feast around the world.

The buffet selections were crazy! There's no way you can try everything on the spread. But here are some highlights of the buffet.

Satisfy your carnivorous cravings at the Carving Station. 

Marriott Hotel- Season of Gifting, Thanksgiving, and Merrymaking

The “ber” month beckons! Have you written the names of friends and colleagues who are nice and checked it twice? 

This year though, go beyond merely completing your list and trust Marriott Hotel Manila in the art of giving. As early as now, the renowned 5-star hotel has thoughtfully put together its selection of hampers that will definitely make an impact the moment they receive the hamper box, be thrilled to see the stylish, sweet, and savory treats inside it, and even use the sturdy hamper box afterwards.

Where to Eat in UP Town Center- Restaurants and Food Destinations

Restaurants in UP-Ayala Town Center- Katipunan

UP Town Center is the newest food mecca in the Metro featuring a two-storey hub of restaurants and new dining spots. 

We were curious to know the restaurant selections in the area, so we decided to pay a visit and check it out ourselves. 

Welcome to Manila Casa Verde! Cebu's most popular American-style comfort food destination finally lands in Manila! It is probably the most visited restaurant in UP Town Center as diners flock the place for the famous Brian's Ribs. Another must-try is their gigantic Milky Way- Definitely the biggest milkshake in town!

Check review of Casa Verde here.

Air Asia Zest Offers Delicious In-Flight Meals, Snacks and Desserts

AirAsia, the world's best lowcost airline, has recently took over Zest Airways Inc. and rebranded themselves as AirAsia Zest.

AirAsia Philippines used to operate in Clark International Airport, but few months ago, Air Asia's CEO Mr. Tony Fernandes announced that it will be shifting its operations in NAIA Terminal 4, to give more choices and value to their customers. This was great news for some people in Manila who probably wouldn't drive all to the way to Clark just to avail of a cheaper flight. 

Just last week, some food and lifestyle bloggers were invited by Nuffnang Philippines and AirAsia Zest in an exclusive preview of the airline's in-flight meals. 

The dinner was hosted by none other than the Apprentice Asia's grand winner himself, Mr. Jonathan Yabut
Games and activities were prepared while everyone was anticipating the food to be served by the airline's in-flight catering provider- Manila Catering Services.

It was a food-filled evening as everyone was able to try the Hot Meals from AirAsia Cafe's in-flight menu.
