Doña Elena Olive Oil x 49B Heirloom Kitchen Festive Flavors Holiday Menu and Promo

Doña Elena, the proudly homegrown and leading olive oil brand in the country, recently partnered up with loyal client and longtime Doña Elena user, 49-B Heirloom Kitchen, to come up with a festive holiday menu using various Doña Elena products.

Chef Erika Aquino, executive chef of the restaurant, gamely accepted the challenge, and prepared a full menu of exciting dishes fit for the upcoming holidays. 

This special menu will be available at 49-B Heirloom Kitchen from November 20 to January 2017

First is a starter of Grilled Shrimp on Patacones (P285)- a South-American inspired appetizer, made with twice-fried plantain slices, pico de gallo, tapenade mayo, and grilled shrimps, served with a chilled cucumber yogurt shooter on the side. Both are made with Doña Elena Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is ideal as salad dressing, bread dip, and to drizzle cooked food.

13 Ubay St. Comfort Dining- Menu Relaunch and New Heirloom Recipes

Remember the restaurant owned by Yna Macaspac of ABS-CBN's teleserye Pangako Sa'yo? 13 Ubay St. Comfort Dining was actually the film location of the famous "KusYna". The restaurant is just minutes away from our office, but it was only last week that we got to visit the place for their menu relaunch.

While the story of "KusYna" ended, the journey of 13 Ubay St. Comfort Dining continues as they celebrate their 1st year anniversary with a new menu lineup. The mother-daughter tandem, Edna and Zaza Sarmiento, took inspiration from heirloom recipes their family personally enjoys, and adventurous dishes from various trips abroad.

Filipino cuisine takes center stage on the new menu, featuring Pinoy favorites such as Binagoongan, Kaldereta, Lechon Manok, and Kare-Kare, which are all mainstays at every Sarmiento gathering.

During the relaunch, we were served with both 13 Ubay's bestsellers, and new menu items.

Starting off with a healthy and refreshing Cheese and Raspberry Salad (P230)- mixed greens, red onion, cucumber, seasonal fruits, fried herb cheese balls in raspberry vinaigrette.

Served next was 13 Ubay's best-selling Bacon Pizza (P250) that highlights their homemade bacon from scratch. The crust was thin and crunchy, topped with generous chunks of crisp bacon and a sunny side up egg. Care for a slice of breakfast?

Kandle Cafe- Asian Fusion Comfort Food and Coffee in Mother Ignacia, Quezon City

There may be a lot of cafes and coffee shops opening here and there, but only a few really invest on the interior and ambiance- Kandle Cafe is one of them.

Stepping inside the cafe, everything seems to be well-thought-out. From the interiors, decors and furniture, down to their menu, everything looks interesting and worth checking out.

One menu item that caught my attention was the Mr. Egoy and Ms. Eggy Pasta (P240). It is fresh squid ink pasta sauteed in smoked bacon and onion, light cream sauce, 63 degree poached egg, garnished with crispy bacon and toasted pan de mie.
