Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken is Now In Quezon City

This is not a drill. The famous restaurant chain in the 80’s to early 00’s is back. After reopening its doors in 2014 at Tiendesitas – Pasig City, Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken is now open at Congressional Town Center – Quezon City. If you live near the area and grew up loving Tom Sawyer’s traditional southern style fried chicken, you will be able to taste them over and over again. 🙂 But this time though make sure to bring your whole family so they can try it, too. That’s what my uncle did! After alerting his friends (his friends went gaga), he took us there. As a 90s kid who grew up loving McDonald’s and Jollibee, I am not that aware of Tom Sawyer’s Old Fashioned Krispy Chicken. I don’t fully understand why they’re raving about it. But now that I got to try it, I understand and support their claim. 🙂 Are you ready to give it a try? You can grab a bite Congressional Town Center! 😀 They’re open from 6am …

Guilt-Free Snacks To Satisfy Your Taste Buds

I’ve been busy with work lately and I am so ready for the weekend. I’m actually planning a movie marathon this Friday night! Are you thinking of the same thing? Besides choosing which movie or series to binge-watch, make sure you also know which snacks to munch on. I know, I know. Eating a tub of ice cream sounds fantastic. A slice of pizza would be good, too. However, you will be hanging on the couch all day. Wouldn’t it be better to eat snacks that will not only give you energy but also satisfy your taste buds? Below is a list of guilt-free snacks I found at a one-stop shop for everything healthy: Oh So Healthy Fruit Crisps This product comes in three flavors: Mango Banana, Guava Purple Yam Banana and Purple Yam Banana Coconut. Not only are they made with 100% natural fruit, they’re also gluten free, vegan friendly, kosher, halal and has no cholesterol. Let me tell you that the said flavors are evident in each chip. It was very surprising and …

Want Your Food Delivered The Right Way? Call the Delivery Guy!

I finally got the chance to try Metro Manila’s newest food delivery service. You may have heard of or seen this trusty guy driving around the metro. He wears a bright yellow polo and black bow tie. Yep, he’s the Delivery Guy! And let me tell you that even though the weather was unpredictable that day, he did a great job delivering our food on time. So what exactly is Delivery Guy? DELIVERY GUY is a Filipino-owned delivery service by husband and wife Neil Castillo and Finina Marie Tugade-Castillo. If these names seem familiar, the couple is part-owner of the Japanese restaurant Ryu Ramen. Together they created that “go to” guy we need and deserve. Let’s say you’re craving for chicken wings. Head over to http://www.deliveryguy.ph, answer the question, select the city and area then hit search. They currently have more than 30 restaurant brands located in the Metro. You can click the restaurant and browse their menu. Once you’ve decided what to get, click the item and “add to order”. Easy, right? You can …

Super Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl

If you’re following my blog, you might have seen my Banana Cinnamon Overnight Oats recipe. (If not, welcome to the blog and here’s the link.) The Banana Cinnamon Overnight Oats is my absolute favorite. But when I visited Ultra Super Green, a shop that sells local and healthy products I found some new addition to my overnight oatmeal. I actually posted a blog and gave you a glimpse of what’s in my shopping bag previously. Now I will give you a closer look at some of these products and share how I incorporate them into my overnight oatmeal. The Green Tummy: Organic Dried Goji Berry This one really caught my attention. I love berries but I never heard of goji berry. According to research, this red berry has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for many years. It has been called a superfood because it is packed with minerals, vitamins and has high levels of antioxidants. The goji berries help boost immune system and in weight loss.

Do you remember this place? I featured this on my blog last year. This is ULTRA SUPER GREEN, a store that sells a variety of all-natural, GMO free, healthy, organic, and eco-friendly products located at Elizabeth Hall in Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City. GUESS WHAT?! They just turned ONE! (Happy Anniversary!) During my first visit, the one-stop shop for everything organic and eco-friendly already houses a wide range of products from food to natural homecare products and personal needs. Look at their store now. There are a lot of new products that will surely make you forget about unhealthy food and snacks. Since I support local and love organic products, I couldn’t pass the chance to try some of their offerings. Would you like to see what’s in my shopping bag?
