Type: loose powder
Where to buy: Althea website

It came in a cute pink box with matching flower petals with sweet powdery scent.

Roadster Roasters- Get #FueledByMeat at the TV5 Launchpad Bldg Mandaluyong

Are you fueled by meat? There's a new spot in town for carnivore foodies to satisfy their meat cravings. 

Roadster Roasters is this new restaurant located at the TV5 Launchpad Bldg. in Mandaluyong.

We dropped by for a very late lunch one Saturday afternoon, to sample some of Roadster's signature roasts and dishes. The place wasn't hard to find, but parking was a bit of a problem. A parking lot is currently in the works to cater to dining customers in the area soon.

Roadster Roasters is a haven for meat-lovers. Their specialties include a 12-hour slow-cooked beef, 4-hr roasted pork barbecue ribs, and a crackling brick oven-roasted pork belly.

Bonchon K-Tastic Korean Adventure in Manila- New and Improved Bonchon Favorites

It has been 7 years since Bonchon introduced the Korean fried chicken in the Philippines. Still, it continues to come up with new and exciting dishes that take every Filipino to a k-tastic Korean experience. 

Last week, I set off to a gastronomic Korean adventure at Bonchon's Ayala Malls The 30th branch in Pasig.

With a suitcase, sunglasses, chopsticks and a checklist in tow, I got ready for a k-tastic day like no other.

Touchdown, Bonchon.

First thing I noticed was that Bonchon revamped its interiors into a modern barn setting with that Western meets Asian vibe. Lighting in stores were also improved to perfectly capture those Instagram-worthy Bonchon k-tastic moments.

Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu Ayala Malls The 30th- Up to 50% Discount via Eatigo

I've written all about Eatigo on my previous post and the top 10 reasons why every foodie needs it on their mobile phones. Now, let me share my first experience in using the app and how we saved almost Php1000 at one of their partner establishments Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu in Ayala Malls The 30th.

We've always wanted to visit the new Ayala Malls The 30th in Pasig, and finally, we found another good reason to visit the newly-built mall.

Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu is a franchise from Akasuka, Tokyo (home to the best and authentic tempura in Japan) which specializes in tendon (tempura donburi) or tempura rice bowl.

Tendon Akimitsu was brought by the same group behind Ramen Nagi, which on the other hand  , specializes on ramen.

The two restaurant concepts stand beside each other and shares a common dining area. Cross-ordering between Ramen Nagi and Tendon Akimitsu is allowed, so that customers can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Since we made reservations at Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu via the Eatigo app, cross-ordering was still allowed, but items ordered from Ramen Nagi won't be included in the discount.

I booked for the 3:00pm time slot with a corresponding 50% discount on our total bill.
