Level Up Your #PiattosTime By Doing Something You Love

Some people enjoy snacking on Piattos while watching movies or tv. Some pair it up with their favorite juice or coffee. It can be a simple snack to satisfy a craving, or it could be your go-to chips for a late night bonding. Whatever reason there is, people seem to have a lot of ways to enjoy their favorite Piattos snack.

Your #PiattosTime can be as simple as chilling at couch surfing the net during breaks, or it can be doing something you love while enjoying the goodness of the hexagonal chips.

I enjoy snacking with Piattos while doing my nails. It's the perfect company to my me-time moment while unleashing my artistic side. This is my #PiattosTime.

Tittos Latin BBQ & Brew in Kapitolyo + Sneak Peak of A Hidden Private Bar RM-16

Kapitolyo has been a food haven among foodies since 2009, back when people would visit this famous car wash place for their really good, no-frills, burgers. Today, the neighborhood continuous to house several upcoming food establishments offering a variety of cuisines from around the world. There's Thai, Indonesian, Chinese, American, Mexican, Japanese, Filipino, Singaporean, and now, even Latin American. 

Tittos Latin BBQ & Brew is a fairly new restaurant across the original branch of Charlie's Grind & Grill in Kapitolyo. Tittos features Latin American dishes skillfully prepared by their head chef, Jerwyn Rabo.

Chef Jerwyn, describes Tittos' menu as fusion, taking after Latin American cuisine, without fully abandoning its Filipino roots. The kitchen team underwent a long series of research and development, to come up with a diverse menu suited for the Filipino palate.

It has been a while since we last visited the Kapitolyo area, and with restaurants opening here and there, it was comforting to see how the neighborhood retained its charm amidst competition.

Stepping inside Tittos, the first things you'd notice are the cool and colorful murals on the wall.

The second floor has some couch seats with a unique brick tunnel design for a more intimate dining setup, and an alfresco dining area for smoking guests.

During our visit, we were served with some of the Tittos' bestsellers. To say it was a feast would be an understatement, as it looked like we were served with the restaurant's full menu lineup. Later we learned, that their menu consists of more than 70 items, and they still plan to add more.

Let us start with the appetizers and Tittos' bestselling street tacos.

Hello Beautiful! The Miss Universe competition may be over, but Dove continues to celebrate the real beauty of women from all around the world. Beauty, after all, is universal.
