Once you’ve tasted it, you’ll be craving for more and want to eat all in one sitting. It’s made up of pure carabao’s milk and this sweet delicacy has two variants, one with the blue cover and one in red. Don’t know exactly the difference between those, but heck it leaves your taste buds really wanting some more. So if you happen to be in Cagayan North, don’t forget to buy this candy.This product is the hometown’s pride and you’ll never be disappointed with its taste.

Food Trip : Pizza At Uno Pizzeria Ristorante bar

After we’ve covered the semi-finals of GBOB 2011 for NCR held at Uno Pizzeria Ristorante bar, SM Mall of Asia (MOA), we had pizza courtesy of the organizers of the event.



Uno Pizzeria Ristorante bar is located near the seaside of MOA, so it’s good to see the sunset at the bay while dining in. It also has a live band set-up to soothe your mood. Food + listening to music + watching the sunset = great feel!


Jolly Jeep

Makati has a lot of good restaurants to dine in. But on a tight budget, you got to check out these food stalls called Jolly Jeep. The stalls can be found everywhere around the business area, wherein during lunch hour or snack time, these are filled up with customers. From rice meals to merienda meals to candybars and desserts, these stalls offer foods that are good but on a cheaper price. Like a combination of a ham sandwich/hamburger, spaghetti/pancit palabok and a soda cost only P50. Swak sa budget as you may call it.






Cafe Lidia food

Cafe Lidia

From the city of Marikina is a restaurant/cafe that’s quite unusual to the place which is known for their hometown dishes. But this resto surprised me when I first visited it together with my brother, who tagged me along to dine in after hanging around to his place. Been there thrice and it’s worth a come back.


Cafe Lidia is one of the best restos around the Metro I would say. It has a very nice ambiance inside, great service from the crew, food has a beautiful presentation and is served fast. And the taste? Delectable!



Since I love pasta, it’s a haven for me for having this cool and cozy place. They also offer other cuisines aside from pasta. They serve chicken, steak, tuna, rice meals, cold and hot beverages and desserts.


Spaghetti Pomodoro


Pizza Papa All Meat Pizza



Strawberry Friz




Not on the pics above that I’ve tried were Pasta Pesto, Pasta Carbonara, Clubhouse, Fish n’ Chips, Buffalo Wings and Grandma’s Chocolate Cake.

So if you’re with your friends and are looking for a place to dine in, are on a budget and happen to be in Marikina City or near its vicinity, this is worth checking out. It has been featured before on QTV11’s Ang Pinaka Show (Ang Pinaka Budget Friendly Tsibugan Part2 episode) and was listed number 5 on its top 10.


Cafe Lidia is located at 64 Calderon Street, Calumpang, Marikina City.
