Celebrating 5 Years Of The Best Shrimp In Town

Filipinos have an explicit love affair with seafood. Which is not unlikely, given that we live on a collection of islands surrounded by deep, rich waters that offer up their bounty all year round.

This love is especially pronounced with shrimp. It’s available all year long in our groceries, we ferment them to make our precious bagoong, dry them to make our soups more savory, and include them in stir-fries, noodle dishes, and on the rare occasions, even dessert.
So it’s no wonder that when Shrimp Bucket opened its doors five years ago, Pinoys welcomed the new restaurant with open arms and healthy appetites.

Knowing that Uni-Pak has large chunks in every can makes it great for cooking and sharing. Now for our food experiment, I will try to make something classic and new at the same time. This time I will be making Uni-Pak Mackerel Silky Sarciado.

There's A Better Way To Mix Whisky

It’s general knowledge that cola goes well with whisky; it’s almost a default drink for avid whisky fans looking to mix their favourite dram. It seems we missed out on mixing whisky with clear soda because it also works, or if not, tastes even better – thanks to our friends from Johnnie Walker for introducing this surprisingly fun mix, with its Johnnie Soda serve. 
Johnnie Walker Red Label is the world’s number 1 best-selling premium Scotch whisky. It has a bold, smoky, characterful flavour that shines through even when mixed with the lemon-lime taste of clear soda. Create this satisfying drink with 1 part Johnnie Walker Red Label, 3 parts soda, ice, a wedge of lime for garnish (optional). 
As this hot summer season comes to an end, parties are being held left and right as people struggle to make the most of the remaining days. For those wondering how to spice up get-togethers, the Johnnie Walker Red Label Summer Party Starter Pack is the answer.
