Auro Chocolate Bar Crawl: A one of a kind curated crawl

Auro Chocolate Bar Crawl: A one of a kind curated crawl

It was known for years as a red-light district, Poblacion is trading its spunky reputation for seediness and skewing itself to be a place where cool is redefined. Heavily wheeled by white-collar Filipinos and expats, they infiltrate the mushrooming dining and drinking scene. Burgos is humid, has sketchy roads, one to none parking space yet its community kept on growing progressively. The Poblacion dining scene is its backdoor hipster counterpart offering an unparalleled haven for those seeking to peek into another world. We are teaming up with Auro Chocolate, an international award-winning, proudly Filipino bean-to-bar chocolate company that sustainably sources cacao beans from local farmers- to reintroduce the best of local chocolate not as a dessert, but as an innovative focal ingredient infused in savory dishes and craft drinks!

 

Experience chocolate like never before! Find out WHY you need to experience the Auro Chocolate Bar Crawl (Poblacion series)

DISH 1: Khao Khai

Pair this with their rum-based drink the Chocolate rimmed Bangkok fire using 64% Dark Chocolate. The best way to enjoy all the flavors would be to get some chocolate off the rim with each sip. It’s refreshing, subtly spicy, and sweet all in one go. Enjoy the first toast of the night, and say “Chon Gaew”!

Lampara’s Slow cooked Pork Belly is prepared sous vide for over 14 hours and topped with Cacao nibs. Each bite is extremely tender and has that burst in flavor that contrasts perfectly with the cacao nibs. It’s an excellent play on soft and hard. Paired with the Chocolate infused Jim Bean Negroni.

Holy Week 2019: Where to EAT, Where to GO, and What to DO!

Holy Week 2019: Where to EAT, Where to GO, and What to DO!

Do you have plans this Holy Week? For some of us who’d rather opt to stay in Manila and avoid the Armageddon of cars before and after this holiday season,  Having so many things in our lives from the daily rat race we participate in it is imperative to take a pause. Finally, some peace and quiet in the city! Truly a pretty rare occasion where more than half of the population will go on a hiatus elsewhere.

EAT, GO and DO this Holy Week 

Not everything is closed for Holy Week and we’re here to show you how you can optimize your down low time during this season.

 

fat girls day out- holy week 2019

The Original Pares Mami House

Located at the corner of N.S. Amoranto (famously known as Retiro). Red and white walls are scruffily faded and the bright orange bowls are readily available to welcome patrons. The place is simple, again scruffy, and raw. But you can see the old hardware of aluminum, paint on the wall, faded old menus that it is a heritage restaurant and the tradition of eating at this place had been passed on from generation to another.

What to get?

But none of these competitors or copycats can battle out The Original Pares Mami House. I recommend ordering the classic Beef Pares, of course, the camaron rebusado and their campto soup. Good food stands the test of time. You do not need so much forward thinking concepts and expensive restaurants to satisfy your search for palate satisfaction. A complete set of Pares will cost you 90php (2 USD) as of May 2017. Expect to spend 300php (4 USD) for two people. You already have 2 sets of Pares, 1 side viand or noodles and share a bottle of cold Coke.

From filling an exhibit that covered 20 feet back in 2008  to 2 kilometers stretch if installations across BGC High Street. The Walkway: Reflections of the Stations of the Cross exhibit re-imagines how we experience Christ and re-establishes why there is a need to reflect during Holy Week. Experience the Station of the Cross in a different way.  The event runs from March 20-27.

Start a Gratitude Journal

Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has—as opposed to, for instance, a consumer-driven emphasis on what one wants or thinks they need.  The feeling of Gratitude constitutes another facet of Positive Psychology.

Practicing gratitude means paying awareness to what we are thankful for the scale of feeling more compassionate toward the world at large. It can motivate people to make positive changes in their lives.

 

fat girls day out- holy week 2019

One of the best ways to show thankfulness on a daily basis is to keep a gratitude journal. While regular journaling has been proven to improve your well-being, making a point of jotting down all the things that you are grateful and experience this feeling of calmness and contentment. If you haven’t tried it, now is the perfect time to form this daily habit.

The Quintessential of Holy Week 

 

Us Christians remember with sorrow all the events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus also comes is the resurrection. The quintessential representation of Life, Death, and New Hope. This is the season when we can just pause and reflect on our spiritual life. We don’t want to sound preachy here, but often times we tend to forget how important it is to keep our parched souls nourished from time to time.

Wishing you a blessed and restful Holy Week.

Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats: Solid Food Grub as Always

Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats: Solid Food Grub as Always

The Brgy. Kapitolyo food scene was defined by these roster of concepts; Cafe Juanita, Charlie’s Grind & Grill, Poco Deli, and Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats. Established around 2012, Mad Mark’s was positioned to be a solid sandwich place where you’d be able to get “THE” Man Sandwich and good artisanal ice creams. Owned by Mark Isidro who got his inspiration from the US ic cream parlor shop called Mom and Pop Ice Cream Parlor. 

 

fat girls day out- mad mark's

 

I’ve been visiting the Kapitolyo branch far too many times just to get myself a scoop or two of their best sellers Half-Baked Madagascar and Java Chocolate and when I’m feeling famished I’d go for their hearty meal plates. Recently, Bianca and I craved for good solid meal plates while we were at Makati and thanks to all the food gods!  Mad Mark’s actually has another branch in the Glorietta 3 Complex. The place is quaint and can get really busy during peak hours.

FGDO Top Picks 

We were famished so we ordered a number of bestseller plates! Let us share with you our food visual snippets.

Appetizer

fat girls day out- mad mark's

Fat Chips (99php)/Seasoned Potato Wedges

 

Mains 

Fat Girls Day Out- mad mark's

Johny Double Black Ribs (265php)/ Full Slab/ 2 Sides

Their signature ribs in JDB sauce, slow cooked for 20hrs before they grill these babies. Tasty and tender ribs, just enough hint of sweetness, strong southern BBQ flavor and smokey.

 

fat girls day out- mad mark's

Daily Steak (265php)/ 150g USDA Flat Iron Steak/2 Side

The full-flavored, classic flat iron steak that is grilled according to your preference. Go for their in-house sauce to compliment everything.

 

fat girls day out- mad mark's

Creole Grilled Chicken (215php)/ Boneless fillet/ 2 Sides

This chicken has a great taste and is just spicy enough without being overpowering. Perfect with any sides.

Dessert 

fat girls day out- mad mark's

Deep Fried Cheesecake/ Madagascar Ice Cream/Chocolate Sauce

The perfect prologue after a good solid meal

Why Go?

I would still definitely vouch for their VALUE FOR MONEY offerings. You’d be able to enjoy a ‘good old’ USDA steak plate for less than 500php. Generous servings, attentive wait staff, and superb ice creams. It’s so good in fact that most of the time it’s way better than most international franchises that came along recently. Their restaurant is not intimidating and exudes this aura of coming inside a rustic southern family home where they will stuff you with their good food and hospitality
