The Perfect Weather for Coffee

I think this is the second time or so this week that I'll mention how chilly it has been for the past days, weeks even. 

This is the perfect weather to grab yourself that hot drink to really savor this rare cold weather we have in this tropical country that we live in. With that being said, I'm debating with myself right now whether I should head out earlier than my 7PM date with friends and have some hot Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks.

Need A New Phone?

Hello guys!

Just a short commercial from my food-related posts.

Please check out my other blog, I'm selling a spare phone I haven't used.

Let me know if you're interested!

Thanks so much!

Frozen Yogurt Craving

How much frozen yogurt can one have to satisfy his/her craving for it?

I know the weather these past few days do not call for frozen yogurt, or any cold food or drinks for that matter. It's been quite chilly and rainy the past days but my weird cravings choose no occasion, time, day, and weather. For some reason, my taste buds want froyo for dessert and I haven't given in to the craving for almost a week.

Yoh-Froz (with Kiwi fruit); Golden Spoon (with Mallows & White Chocolate); California Berry (Blueberry plain); and White Hat (Strawberry plain)

Any one of these frozen yogurts will do and I'll have a happy tummy and happy taste buds. I'm actually missing two photos here, one from Red Mango and Lulu Belle. Yes, I love frozen yogurts, desserts, and trying out different and all kinds of food from different places for comparison. If you're wondering, White Hat's on top of my list. I'm open for suggestions of any other frozen yogurt place other than these 6 I've already tried.

BonChon's Fish Rice

It has been a year since BonChon has graced Manila with its "no-need-for-gravy" chicken and people still line up every time a new branch opens up. I tried this Korean-based franchise restaurant when it opened up a store in Ayala Triangle, just to see (and taste) for myself what the fuss was all about. Fortunately, it appealed to my taste buds and I loved it! I love how the chicken doesn't need ketchup or gravy or any other sauce other than the flavor itself. You can choose to have soy garlic or spicy.

But even though BonChon is popular for their chicken, they have also added up new food to their menu including their fish tacos, bulgogi and my new favorite: fish rice.

The "combo" meal has 3 strips of fillet fish (with choices of soy garlic or spicy) with rice + drink. I love my food spicy so even when I had my fish spicy already, I still ordered an extra spicy mayo just to add taste. Spicy mayo can also be used for the chicken which I also do because I just can't seem to eat fried chicken without some condiments and BonChon's spicy mayo is just right with the chicken's flavor. Gravy or ketchup would be too eeky.

Next on my list is to try their fish tacos and bulgogi.

Visit BonChon in Shangri-La Plaza, Ayala Triangle, Greenbelt 1, Promenade Greenhills, Taft Avenue, and Eastwood.

Which Hot Drink Do You Prefer?

To be more specific, which hot drink do you prefer to have on a cold, rainy day? Coffee? Hot chocolate? Milk? Tea?

I woke up today and the first thought I had was that of a song from Maroon 5, Sunday Morning, because it was raining on a Sunday morning. Apparently, it has been raining the whole day and my urge to have Iced Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks ended up being a Hot Green Tea Latte instead.

Because I wasn't able to take a photo of my to-go drink, I got this from: Fabulouslybroke

I don't know if it's just me, but no matter what I want to drink, when it turns out to be raining I always opt for something hot to drink and usually when I'm just at home I'm limited to either coffee or hot chocolate.

Any other hot drink suggestions? What are your favorites?
