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).

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.

Red Ribbon Bake Shop Brazo de Mercedes Roll

By now you're thinking my mom has a sweet tooth for everything that comes in mind. My mom has been craving for so many desserts during her pandemic months. I've never been into sweet and I am glad. I couldn't understand why my mom wanted a full size of Brazo de Mercedes Roll when she only lives alone. Anyway she got what she wanted it kind of look like an arm from the picture 😂🤣being all white on the outer part inside there is custard color yellow. I kept telling my mom the Brazo de Mercedes Roll is sweet but she didn't listen to me. I made her eat what she had craved for good thing there is no baby expected in her stomach. The other day I mentioned to Manang V what my mom was craving for the Brazo de Mercedes Roll. Manang V said that is also my favorite cake. I started to think maybe it is just me who think it is sweet.

Who knows my taste buds is too Americanize for a person who grew up from California even though I've lived in the Philippines for a long time we tend to miss our cultural food we tend to adapt ourselves.

Mogu Mogu Lychee Juice with Nata De Coco

Years before my mom and I would go shopping at 10:00 AM  we would be at the shopping mall when they had just opened. After our shopping we would complete our day to go grocery together last night my mom called me up telling me. Do you remember that juice you use to drink in the car the flavor is lychee? There is something floating in the juice. I cannot remember what the name of the juice is. You would always drink it after our shopping. I was naming all these drinks to my mom.  I remember that my mom was talking about Mogu Mogu Lychee Juice with Nata De Coco inside that was floating inside the bottle. I decided to do my grocery shopping through Metro Mart at Robinson from some other items my mom needed off her list there wasn't enough time to order somewhere else. The problem my mom doesn't inform me ahead of time items she needs. My mom was telling me she was running out of food. I felt bad for her while I am eating good food she is stuck with food she doesn't want to eat
