After our long trip to Baguio, the first thing we would want of course is to sip a bowl of smokingly hot soup. We don’t have any plans of where to eat so we looked for any restaurant near “Minesview Park”. It was 7am, and most of the restaurants were still closed until we found “Bulalo Fiesta”. “Open 24 hours” it says but honestly, it was still closed when we arrived at the doorstep. The staff were still preparing and cleaning the restaurant. Since we were too tired to search for other restaurant, we became stubborn and told them if it was okay to wait inside while they prepare. They willingly offered us seats so we could rest.

This sight welcomed us as soon as entered the door. Being an absolute spicy food lover,  this literally brightened up my day and energized my tired spirit. I want to take this home.

This store showcaseds a kind of vinegar called “Sinamak. It is simple a vinegar with several spices soaked into it like chilis, ginger, garlic, peppercorns, shallots, and onions. The longer these spices are drowed in vinegar, the better taste it gets. It’s quite common in Filipino household already but it looks like Bulalo Fiesta took it to other level with the use of Coconut vinegar and other spices we may not know. I really love their vinegar that we bought one bottle to take home.

After few minutes, they let us choose seat while we eat our breakfast. We chose the veranda although the sunshine strikes directly upon us.

It was annoying but we didn’t mind because of the killer view.

They have wide variants of Bulalo with different price ranges. We chose Bulalo w/ Young Sweet Corn which costs P292.00 good for 2-3 persons. The broth was delicious with its tender meat. I also love the freshness and crispiness of the vegetables.

Other Bulalo Variants: Bulalo w/ Jackfruit and Dried Beans, Bulalo Puchero, Bulalo w/ Talbos Bulaklak ng Sampalok and Super Bulalo Special which is the most expensive for P620.00 good for 4-6 persons.

Overall, everything that we ate in this restaurant were delicious. We were glad that this became our  unlikely welcome to start our day in Baguio.

Food of The Day: Bari Kara Ramen, Newest Flavor From Ramen Kuroda

TeamTonice1-2

Food of the Day: “BARI KARA RAMEN” , the newest flavor of Ramen Kuroda,
Price: P230.00

“A very spicy taste of extraordinary pork based soup with perfect combination of spices that touches the soul of a Real Ramen taste!” – Ramen Kuroda

I’ve been a fan of Ramen Kuroda. It’s been my number one Ramen Resto until “Mendokoro Ramenba” entered the picture. That’s why when I heard about their new spicy ramen offering last February, I’ve been wanting to taste it. I only got the opportunity last March 23 at their Eastwood Branch. And it did not disappoint. Rich and thick in taste indeed. Of course, the pork meat is soft just like before. (Banayad sa dila as I use to describe it). The spicyness is tolerable and won’t hurt even the non-spicy fans foodies. But comparing to my favorite Aka Ramen, I would still choose Aka. It’s the ramen that made me fall in love with Ramen Kuroda and still think its more delicious than Bari-Kara.

Final Verdict: 4.5/5 stars. Spicy Ramen Lovers should check this out!

#FOTD: Stoned Baked Rice, Pizza on a Rice

Food of the Day: Stoned-Baked Rice
Restaurant:Gottis,SM Megamall Branch
Cuisine:Italian

Isa ito sa mga kinaadikan ko ngayon. Hindi ko malimutan simula ng matikman ko. Para siyang pizza toppings na nilagay sa ibabaw ng mainit na rice. Resulta? Mainit at malambot na cheese na naghalo sa spices. May limang flavors ang Stone-Baked Rice. Pinakapaborito ko ang Gambino Gamberi.

Quoting directly “succulent shrimps sauteed in garlic, pepperoncino and sweet peppers”. Katulad ng pizza, binubudburan ko rin ito ng Chili Powder. P140-P160 lang presyo ng Stoned-Baked Rice.

Sobrang sulit na sa sarap niyan. At isa pa, hindi mo na kailangang pumila dahil walang masyadong tao sa Gottis. Sa unang tingin, mukha kasing mamahalin ang resto. Nakakarelaks. Subukan niyo na nang mahusgahan niyo rin!

VERDICT: ★★★★♡♡♡♡

Now for the photography part of this blog, my mentor told me that the photos are too warm. Good food photography should expose the true color of the food. For some reason, I love warm colors in all things and I thought that the lighting makes a good impression for the photo. But hey this it is my first time. I will take note of this next time.
