Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory | Review

My family and I passed by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory several times in the past but it was only this afternoon that we get to sit down and taste its delicious caramel apple. I find the wide range of caramel-covered Granny Smith apples very tempting. Each apple on display is coated with a mix of various ingredients. Deciding which variant to try is not really easy especially for a person with a sweet tooth like me.

Cheesecake Caramel Apple Php 290

Caramel-covered Granny Smith apple dipped in white confection, rolled in crushed graham crackers

So, my senior mom and I decided to get a piece of Cheesecake Apple to share. You may request the staff to slice the apple so it will be easier to eat. I love the smooth caramel that covered the entire apple. It's sticky so it's a little bit tricky to pull each piece apart. Simply put, this is the best candied apple I have ever tasted. The combination of the sweetness of caramel and the tartness of green apple is perfect!

Mighty Quinn's Slow Smoked Barbeque PH | Review

Mighty Quinn's Slow Smoked Barbeque is now in the Philippines. Oh, but you must have known it by now. We have been wanting to try it but for some reason we always end up elsewhere. It must have been the crowd, we tend to avoid it. It took 10 months after it opened before we were able to taste Mighty Quinn's award-winning barbecue.

Woorirang Korean Restaurant | Review

Quezon City does not run out of new restaurants. It seems like there's a new one to discover every time we turn around the block. Such is the case on how we discovered Woorirang Korean Restaurant along Sct. Fernandez St. over a month ago.

Woorirang | formerly Arirang Korean Restaurant

Unlimited Samgyupsal

  • Beef and Pork Php 450
  • Pork only Php 350

Woorirang opens at 11am and closes at 5am. We were there a little before 11am but the staff let us in anyway. I thought there was a buffet of cooked Korean dishes like in Hwaroro that would go well with the grilled bbq meat but there's none. We decided to stay so we can try something new.

Hwaroro Korean Grill Buffet at Php 399! Updated

Suddenly, I have rekindled my love for Korean BBQ. I have been back twice at Hwaroro recently and found out that Hwaroro Korean Grill didn't increase the price (Php 399) of its buffet + BBQ Grill since I first set foot on its restaurant back in 2013. So, I thought of sharing my very first experience at Hwaroro in this space. The good news is that Hwaroro now offers unlimited coffee and tea at no extra cost. The only difference is that it now has a two (2) hour time limit. Clock starts when the staff leads you to your table. Timer starts now!

My brother knew that DH and I are fans of Korean BBQ Grill. He suggested a restaurant along Scout Tobias St. called HwaRoRo Korean Grill. The signage is well-lit at night so if you are going there for dinner, you won't miss it!

 aside from unlimited serving of Korean BBQ Grill, there are other Korean dishes available

While DH was busy grilling, I had already picked my favorite Korean dishes like Korean Beef Stew and japchae from the buffet table

Japchae is a Korean dish made from sweet potato noodles, stir fired in sesame oil with various vegetables like carrots, onion, spinch and mushrooms), sometimes served with beef and flavored wiht soy sauce and sweetened with sugar.  - SOURCE

Marukoma Japanese Restaurant | Review

Marukoma Japanese Restaurant is a yakitori restaurant owned and operated by Yutaka Izakaya. Both restaurants share the same location along Aurora Blvd., in Quezon City. During lunch, most diners are from the school across the street. Guests during dinner time are mostly families.

Marukoma | Yakitori

Omakase Set Php 430

We have been waiting for Marukoma to open for the longest time. In fact, my family secretly wished it would open just in time for our daughter's 5th birthday. As you all know, we ended up in Yutaka  Izakaya because it's still non-operational at that time.

Since this is a yakitori restaurant, we ordered its Omakase set which includes 10 assorted sticks:

  • Ebi (shrimp) Php 100
  • Butabara (Pork) Php 60
  • Tebasaki (Chicken Wings) Php 80
  • Asparamaki (Asparagus wrapped in Bacon) Php 60
  • Tebasaki (Chicken Wings) Php 80
  • Torimi (Chicken) Php 70

Prices quoted are its individual prices. Each item comes in two (2) sticks. You can save Php 20 if you order the set. 

On a side note, Winna (Arabiki Hotdog) Php 80 is not included in Omakase set so we ordered it from the ala carte menu.

If you are on a seafood diet, you may want to order Shishamo Php 135. Shishamo (Willow Leaf Fish) is a saltwater fish about 15cm in length. It is slim and resembles a willow leaf. It is generally dark on the back with a sliver-white underside. In Japanese cuisine, this fish is grilled or fried whole and served with its roe intact.
