FOOD STOPS: Cerealicious

Cereals are one of my favorite breakfast treats and today it is not exclusively eaten in the morning. The fun is, you can be very creative and thematic for your bowl of this breakfast treat. With new shows and movies showing on movie houses, wouldn't be great to make it as your food adventure? Cerealicious is the only one of its kind to provide these sweet pleasures plus more! Unlike we got used to, we only have either one kind of cereal plus milk, which we just normally eat. But cerealicious made this experience more exciting by mixing and matching different cereals, fruits and even snacks like M&M's  and wafer sticks. To make things more interesting they also made themes based on movies foe example, I got the Hurt Loacker which is a mix of M&Ms, Loacker wafer and  syrup. 


Figaro never fails to surprize us as it is not just your ordinary coffee store but also a place where you can dine and enjoy your time. Plus they also have wifi for those who loves to stay connected. Now we have stopped by another Figaro store (Shangri La Plaza, 3rd floor) for new meals that they offer. These are the SPOON MEALS by Figaro.
For this offer they have two variants available and each is paired with a drink of your choice, either iced or brewed coffee or iced tea. The first is the CHICKEN THYME IN CREAMY CHEESE SAUCE (Php 215). Served with buttered corn and carrots and rice. These semi-bite sized portions are really packed with delicious chicken with the thyme just right to bring out the flavor. The creamy cheese  adds flair to the dish as it neutralizes the solid chicken texture. More than a plateful of colors, it serves a very full meal. Now next is CHICKEN ALA KING (Php 215) made from diced chicken in special creamy sauce with vegetables served with buttered corn and carro…


Tapella Greenbelt 5
The Food Stops now takes you on a Spanish journey to TAPELLA restaurant located in Greenbelt 5. We were invited for a cooking demonstration by Executive Chef Alexandra Cacho. Although we Filipinos have been infused with Spanish cusine, it would be great to experience the authentic Spanish dishes. Chef Alexandra came from Spain but she has been here for quite some time that she can incorporate Filipino words with her cooking. Tapella actually came from Tapas and Paella, two of the most known Spanish dishes and the restaurant's specialty.  The Philippines have known Spanish dishes and have also integrated into the culture. However the authentic Spanish taste is also hard to define because in Spain there is also a wide diversity of cuisine that are exclusively in their region. TAPELLA is considered Gaudi.  Perfectly paired with light punch of Sangria or their quality Wines makes the experience unforgettable. It was also my first time to taste their garlic cold soup w…
