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.

Turkey Breast Beretta vs Turkey Ham Amadori

I was able to do a comparison on Turkey Breast Beretta vs Turkey Ham Amadori from my observation and family members. You look close they have the same size, shape and color only difference the way it is trim on the side is quite different from each other. Growing up the life of parents owning a Subway Sandwiches you kind of know base on what taste better for you on the cold cuts you put on your own sandwiches. Turkey Breast Beretta Turkey Ham Amadori Over all the Turkey Breast Beretta is the winner by it's taste it is turkey meat even if there is a portion of ham in it. Turkey Ham Amadori has less taste on the turkey more on the ham by flavoring in the meat. There is only a little amount on price difference. Eating healthy comes with making your own meals at home by how you would like to add in your sandwich. For your reference you may refer to my article where I had placed my order:

Stainless Steel Steamer Cookware

The best part is to have a stainless steel steamer in your home. We often use it when we are cooking siomai and frozen siopao purchase in the grocery store. It is easier to use and makes life easier for Manang V to cook in our kitchen. The stainless steel steamer is three layers by adding water on the lower level.  We also use the stainless steel steamer when we cook steam fish and vegetables. It is easy to clean and accessible to put away after being washed. I had purchase my stainless steel steamer in  Shop at Los Ganadores  Lazada Philippines for PHP 458.00 ($9.16) not including shipping and handling. There is a third layer in this picture we are only using one. Giving you an ideal how it looks when being used on the gas stove. The siopao in the picture was purchase from Hen Lin separated from the stainless Steel Steamer Cookware. For your reference you may refer to my article to place your order for Hen Lin:
