Jobsite Cafe & Hobbies Quezon City | Restaurant Review

When my mommy friends and I are looking for a place to eat breakfast at 7am, a fellow mom suggested Jobsite Cafe & Hobbies along Biak na Bato St., in Quezon City. She said that it's new and the location is so strategic that I can't miss it. And true enough, I was able to spot the cafe/car wash right away. It's gated with a security guard manning both the restaurant and the car wash so I felt safe inside.

I noticed that a lot of establishments in Quezon City are in close proximity to a car wash like Tazza and Serenitea to name a few. Jobsite Cafe & Hobbies is no different. It is located on the second floor just above the office of a car wash company which I forgot the name ; p

Ohayo Maki and Ramen Bar | Restaurant Review

Staying in Canada for almost a month made DH and I missed most of the movies shown here in our local cinemas. The first thing in our agenda when we got back is a movie date. We watched Mission: Impossible- Fallout at one of our favorite theaters.

After watching the movie, we decided to have an early dinner with my side of the family in the newly opened Ohayo Maki and Ramen Bar along Granada Ave., in Quezon City. The restaurant is just beside Mien San. If you are familiar with the area, you know that parking is just limited to only a few cars. It just so happened that there's one vacant spot for our car to park. Yes, we are lucky like that!

Ohayo Maki and Ramen Bar's Tsukemen

Ohayo Maki and Ramen Bar's vibe reminded me of Oyasumi Ramen in P. Guevarra St., San Juan. I even thought that the two restaurants have the same owner. Upon entering, you can immediately see the bar where the food is being prepared. The restaurant was crowded with diners which means that business is doing well. We were quickly led to the second floor but there was only one couch and it was already occupied. So, we made our way back to the ground floor where we were able to settle at the bar. Well, 3 of us- DH, sis and I. My parents and my daughter shared a table just a few steps from us. The place is really small. Think about the ramen places in Japan. Yup, that small!

Yi Fang Milk Tea San Juan | Review

For months, DH and I were waiting for the opening of Yi Fang Taiwan Fruit Tea along M. Paterno in San Juan. When it finally opened, we were one of the first customers who tried various drinks- milk tea and fruit tea. We have been going back ever since.

Yi Fang | Signature Fruit Tea & Brown Sugar Pearl Tea Latte

Yi Fang Signature Fruit Tea and  Brown Sugar Pearl Tea Latte

Yi Fang's Signature Fruit Tea and Brown Sugar Pearl Latte are two of our favorites. I learned that these drinks are also Yi Fang's bestsellers 👌

Yi Fang Signature Fruit Tea

  • made with premium mountain tea, pineapple, passion fruit, lemon, apples and oranges

Yi Fang Brown Sugar Pearl Tea Latte

  • soft brown sugar pearls with fresh milk and premium black tea 

It takes awhile for drinks to be served because all drinks are freshly-made. What I like about Yi Fang is that no artificial flavors were used, only real ingredients.

Starbucks Milk Tea Panna Cotta Cream Frappuccino | Review

It's no secret that I love drinking milk tea. When Starbucks came out with its own twist called Milk Tea Panna Cotta Cream Frappuccino, I can't let it pass since the tea-based beverage will only be available until July 23, 2018.

Starbucks Philippines | Milk Tea Panna Cotta Cream Frappuccino 

Starbucks Milk Tea Panna Cotta Cream Frappuccino (Php 165/Tall, Php 180/Grande and Php 195/Venti)

Thank you, sis for my drink!

It was a rainy afternoon, a perfect time to have a cup of blended Frappuccino in my hand. My sister was with me and offered to pay for my drink 👌 Little sisters are the best!

I can't describe how I felt with the drink. I want to like it but I simply can't. I think I only consumed 1/4 of the drink and I just can't finish it. It was plain dry and it tasted weird.

I hope Starbucks can come up with a better tasting milk tea or just stay true to brewing coffee. #MyTwoCents #JustSaying

Oh, Milk Tea Panna Cotta Cream Frappuccino came out at the same time as the much raved about Pistachio Bon Bon Cream Frappuccino. I might just give this one a try on my next visit!

Were you able to taste Starbucks latest offering? What can you say about it?

Twa Pak To | Restaurant Review

Last Father's Day, DH decided to check Twa Pak To (Big Belly/Tummy in Chinese) at the 2nd level of  Elements Hall @ Sct. Rallos Complex.

Twa Pak To

We ordered the following at Twa Pak To: 

  • Crispy Pork Belly Quarter Php 300
  • Spicy String Beans Php 150
  • Chinese Sausage Fried Rice Php 220
  • Five Spiced Pork Chop Php 160
  • Braised Beef Stew Php 380
  • Clear Soup Php 10 per bowl

Braised Beef was not as tender as I wanted, parang kulang pa sa kulo. The carrot was raw so it was a bit hard to bite and chew. IMO, the Five Spiced Pork Chop is better without its breading.

We all like the Chinese Sausage Fried Rice. My daughter was able to finish eating her portion in no time. I hardly cook veggie at home so ordering one is a must when we dine out. DH and I were able to finish the entire order of Spicy String Beans.

One of the food that you should not miss when you dine at Twa Pak To is the Crispy Pork Belly. The skin was so crispy and the meat so tender. We had to control ourselves from finishing the entire order so we can save some for take out ; p

We were the first customers that day. Maganda siguro kaming buena mano because right after we went in, diners came in family or groups. Generally, the food at Twa Pak To is tasty and you can get value for money. 

Twa Pak To is located at the 2nd Level Food Complex Elements Hall  | 27 Scout Rallos St., Laging Handa, Quezon City | +63 933 368 9309
