Ramen Cool West Ave

Japanese cuisine is one of the fast-rising cuisine that was welcomed by the Filipino palate with arms wide open. It is inevitable as a lot of Japanese big food chains have opened here and you can have your fill of Japanese dishes anywhere, from high-end down to hole-in-wall types.

Fresh from our honeymoon as newly wed couple, Soshi and I was craving for something Japanese. Luckily we got an invite from Ramen Cool West Ave to try out their dishes.

Ramen Cool is a simple Japanese restaurant which offers a variety of Japanese dishes like rolls, sushi, sashimi, donburi and ramen. Currently they have 3 branches all across the Metro. Their interiors and ambiance is comparable to the clean and minimalistic approach of the Japanese.

Milky and Sunny Makati

Another Zomato Foodie Meet-up!

When life gets too gloomy and you feel stressed, we all crave a bit of sunshine to get us through the day. I have been to that phase because of work training, wedding preparations, basically everything in my life had been too much to take. So when Zomato invited me for a foodie meet-up at one of the sunniest resto in the metro, how can I not say yes?

Milky and Sunny started spreading their sunshine at their first branch in the foodie haven, Kapitolyo. It was pegged as an all day breakfast place that everyone loves to hang. Pia Magalona, one of the restaurant owners mentioned that they wanted to share the charm of Milky and Sunny here in Makati.

What I love about Milky and Sunny is their ambiance and interiors. They really stood up to their name because the place really attracts a lot of sunshine. High ceiling, warm cozy interiors, you can't help but feel happy as you dine here. Now, let's talk about their food. They have an extensive menu as most of their dishes are inspired by Pia's kids favorite dishes, hence most of the dishes names have their name on it. Take a look at some of the dishes we tried:

AMPR Night at Cuore Makati

The foodie scene in Jupiter Street is certainly coming alive, thank to the different diverse restaurants popping here and there. It makes our lives harder and at the same time, exciting. Our tummies flutter at the mere thought of "Where do we eat?" as choices are vastly immense, you'd want to try everything.

In the recent AMPR Bloggers Appreciation Night,the AMPR Digital and Marketing team invited us bloggers for dinner to share with us their milestones and introducing more partner brands, which included Cuore Bistro and Social Lounge.

Cuore is an Italian word for "heart", which describes the dishes that they offer in their homey bistro. It is definitely a cool place to hang out with and catch-up with friends because of their cozy atmosphere. Let me share what Cuore prepared for us that night:

Sugar Waxing at Whipped Salon BGC

Whipped Salon is a beauty salon which specializes in sugar waxing and body scrubbing. They have a quaint and vibrant store in three locations, BGC, Alabang and Quezon City. I partnered with them for me to try their services so you'll have an idea what to expect.

Sugaring or sugar waxing is a hair removal method similar to waxing. The only difference is that sugar waxing uses a sugaring paste which can be applied to the skin on room temperature, unlike with waxing that uses hot/warm wax.

Zomato Food Run: Sugarhouse Glorietta

This is a continuation of our Zomato Food Run adventure. Zomato Food Run is quite similar to a food crawl, but the main difference is that we are crossing 3 different cities and trying out dishes from 5 different restaurants . We're trying to conquer 3 prominent foodie location, BGC, Makati and Paranaque.

Our next stop is a dessert place which somehow wraps up our complete feast for the day. We dropped by Sugarhouse Glorietta. Just in time, Sugarhouse was celebrating their 33 years in business and we got to meet the owner. I never imagined that they have been serving good quality cakes and desserts for that long. I've been passing by the Sugarhouse branch in Glorietta for almost 8 years now, eversince I started working in Makati. I was able to try their cakes way back then, and they sure are good.

This time, I am happy because I get to taste all their bestseller desserts. Talk about sugar overkill, I don't mind dying coz I know I'll go to sugar heaven. :)

Here are some of the desserts we had that time:
