When 2018 started, my wife, Yen, and I promised each other we’d start living a healthier lifestyle. Four months into the year, and we’re still having difficulty sticking to our diet. It’s such a difficult thing to do! Snacking is especially hard because there are rarely healthy snacks. With chips and everything fried offered on the menu, it’s almost impossible to look for a healthy alternative. Luckily, we found this great recipe online about salad rolls. It’s like salad on-the-go which is really perfect for light snacks! Of course, knowing us, we always put our own spin to dishes and recipes to make them more flavorful and . And we’ve found the best thing that goes with it — San Marino Tuna Fillet!
Just recently, our friends from Gold Seas Tuna Chunks asked me and my family to take on their fun mystery challenge. Being the competitive family that we are, naturally we immediately said YES!
So, here’s what happened… Gold Seas Tuna Chunks whisked us away to Noni’s Resort in beautiful Batangas to enjoy an amazing glamping experience where our challenge was also going to take place.
During our overnight getaway, The DREYS (that’s us!) had a delightfully unforgettable time bonding over jokes, laughter and, of course, TUNA!

AirAsia and Chef JP Anglo introduces the Roasted Dalandan Chicken with Pimiento Sauce using Malagos chocolate!
Great news for foodies and travelers alike! If you love flying and enjoying delicious in-flight meals, you’re gonna love this bit of news I’ve got for you.
AirAsia guests will have a brand new meal to enjoy this summer. Yup! The airline voted the world’s best low cost carrier just recently introduced a special chocolate dish in collaboration with celebrity Chef JP Anglo and other exciting new products in its Santan in-flight menu, further enhancing AirAsia guests’ experiences on board.
I was fortunate to be a part of the group that witnessed the BIG reveal at Malagos Garden Resort in Davao just a few days ago.
So, ready to know what new gastronomic delight was announced during that evening?
Hey, everyone! If you think that the season of feasting and enjoying great food is over just because Christmas Day has passed, well, you’re very wrong.
Every Pinoy knows that the holiday season is celebrated the longest here in our country. That means we still have until the celebration of Three Kings to enjoy more parties, get-togethers, and a good amount of festivities even at home with friends and family.
Take for example, The Dreys’ household. Loved ones and friends continuously — and sometimes suddenly — drop by our home to say hello and share some holiday cheer. Of course, making sure that guests have good food to eat when they’re around is top priority.
And since Media Noche (the feast on New Year’s Eve) is still upon us, a good amount of food preparations are still underway.
How often does one come across a drink product that not only truly refreshes and deliciously quenches one’s thirst, but is also uniquely packaged, wittingly named and supports the local community by giving back? Well, that is exactly what one of our local brands is doing through their amazing drinks called, LOCALLY!
Adobo is one of those dishes my family and I absolutely love. It doesn’t spoil easily and it also happens to become more flavorful the longer its kept.
Filipinos just can’t get enough of adobo, with nearly all regions in the country spawning their own unique variants of this vinegar-and-soy-sauce-laced comfort dish. Considered a strong contender for “pambansang ulam,” adobo teases one’s tastebuds with the enticing blend of sour, sweet, and savory, evoking both the simplicity and richness of Filipino cuisine. It has endeared itself with all manner of foodies and captured the hearts of Filipinos and foreigners alike.
More often than not, when you ask a foreigner what Filipino dish they enjoy the most, one of the most mentioned dishes is Adobo. And with good reason.
If you thought that you’ve already seen, heard, or tasted everything that this quintessential Filipino dish has to offer, think again! Leading condiment brand, Datu Puti, presents an innovative and convenient way of cooking the classic Pinoy comfort food through its “Adobo Series”.
Guys, honestly… “heart-friendly” is probably the last thing on your mind when you reach for the cooking oil in your kitchen shelf, am I right? It probably isn’t any wonder considering how health buffs give it a bad rap all these years. Well, I guess it’s high time to set the record straight once and for all…
So, while some cooking oils put your cardiovascular health at risk, there are actually others that provide essential good fats that our bodies need. Yup. It’s true! In fact, there are even some cooking oils that reduce your risk of having coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular ailments.
I recently took my family on a quick road trip to Nueva Ecija to check out the recently opened branch of Isdaan Floating Restaurant.
Isdaan Floating Restaurant has long been a popular destination and stopover spot for locals and tourists alike. They serve great food and offer up some fun and novelty attractions.
If you’ve already been to their original branch in Tarlac and fell in love with its unique ambiance, you’re surely gonna enjoy Isdaan in Nueva Ecija. It retains the same atmosphere and ambiance that we have come to know.
Enjoying a selection of cheese with a glass of delicious wine is something I would never ever pass up. It is, in my opinion, one of mankind’s greatest pleasures (and creations).
I’ve always loved cheese. All kinds, in fact. From the subtlest flavor to the strongest and most pungent of varieties. Wine, on the other hand, is something I rarely enjoy. It isn’t my go-to beverage when I visit restaurants and bars. But, that isn’t to say that I dislike them altogether. I don’t mind a glass of red every now and then — especially when there’s a fine selection of cheese around.
You see, this practice of serving wine and cheese together have lasted for many generations, dating back hundreds of years. And no one knows the delight of this culinary art more than the French. This is exactly why I made it a point to experience an authentic wine and cheese tasting session during my recent trip to Paris, France.
How can you not, right?
For those who aren’t aware, my great grandfather is French. He grew up in a town located in the Alsace region called, Obershaeffolsheim. It sounds German, I know. But only because Alsace has long been in the middle of a tug-of-war between France and Germany, being ceded by the Germans more than once.
So… what better way to immerse myself in some of the finer French culinary practices than by partaking of some wine and cheese the way my great grandfather used to enjoy it.
Guys, it’s that time of the year once again when we recognize and vote for our favorite restaurants, food establishments and gastronomic bets.
The Choice 2017 is upon us.
Being a member of “The KTG” — a group made up of food bloggers, writers, and members of the F&B industry, I am always very curious to know what all of you consider to be favorites.
Every month, every week, and almost every day it seems, there’s a new restaurant opening in Metro Manila. Some become instant classics while others are just a flash in the pan (pardon the pun… hehehe).
So, once again, Our Awesome Planet, the Blogger Collective known as The KTG (Kain Tulog Gang) and World Food Expo (WOFEX) have partnered to conduct the People’s Choice for their Favorite Food, Restaurants, Bars, and more…. or simply, “The Choice”.
