Smash It: Burger & More in Marikina Heights

Who is craving for Burgers and fries?   Hopefully you're into something new to eat at Smash It: Burger & More in Marikina Heights.  I had ordered it through Grab Food application on my phone.  The following orders were as followed: Double BBQ Bacon Smash Burger requested for no sauce and vegetables for PHP 207.20 with Curly Fries PHP 169.00 plus a Red Iced tea PHP 49.00 total of PHP 425.20 ($7.59). Double Caramelized Smash Burger for PHP 249.00 with French Fries with Homemade Ketchup PHP 99.00 total of PHP 348.00 ($6.21). I had ordered myself the Buffalo Chicken Poppers for PHP 189.00 ($3.38) the serving was big. I couldn't quite finish it very spicy even if it says mild on the label on the box. I used my ranch dressing to minimize the heat coming from my mouth. I wanted to try their Apple Cinnamon Tart for two pieces for PHP 129.00 ($2.30) the apple cinnamon tart wasn't sweet something good to add vanilla ice-cream if you wanted too. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or adv

Pasalubong TJN Biscotti Caramel & Ube Flavor

  My favorite cookie in California is biscotti that is imported but in my situation they don't sell the product here or the cost of eating is off my budget this time I decided to buy something locally made in the Philippines. This is how the biscotti caramel flavor and ube look like when you open it up. The trend every where is made of ube which we often see in the market and social media from bread, cake, milk tea and so many more it is over whelming what anyone can make out of something for us to try each time. To learn more on the product click at the link: TJN Pasalubong Biscotti Note: I am not selling their product I was just curious on how the caramel and ube biscotti would taste.

The House of Pink Salmon Skin Chicharon

  You may have notice I love to explore and try new other products. I have eaten pink salmon skin chicharon before when I would do a road trip with my mom most of the time it would be sold in the gas station in the Philippines. It is not the same product in which I had discovered online but they all taste the same only difference the House of Pink Salmon Skin Chicharon provide flavored Barbecue and Spicy Barbecue most other brand I have tried was either Original or Spicy. I love eating salmon knowing it is a healthy snack and doesn't go out of my days when I feel like eating a snack during the days when I crave something to eat. The best part it stays crispy after you have opened the bag that is a good thing for me since I cannot finish one bag it will take awhile for me to finish it.

Rio Cocktail Malaysia

Everyone wants a different taste when they love to explore on alcohol beverage when you see something new you too want to try it too the product may not be new to the company who has produce it but to you it is eye catching when you see the colors. This time around I decided to try each flavor that was sold in one seller I saw online who was selling it to see what it would taste like out of my own curiosity. Each alcohol bottle contains 3.8% not bad for me and each color alcohol has a different ingredient the color Green Rio is Lime & Rum Cocktail Pink Rio Peach & Brandy Cocktail Blue Rio Rose & Whisky Cocktail Purple Rio Grape & Brandy Cocktail I haven't tried them all yet slowly I only drink the Rio Lime and Rum with Manang V sharing a bottle in a glass of our own the taste is not strong just right.
