We are always left with no room for dessert after we have a meal.  So we decided to have desserts first!
Braved the drive from Batangas to Sta Rosa just to have a taste.  We don’t regret skipping dinner over pastillas and ice cream!

Buffy’s is a quaint little store that sells Fresh Buffalo Milk, Pastillas de Leche and Ice Cream made from Buffalo Milk!  Their products are all natural.  No preservatives.

Buffalo Milk.  So many flavors to choose from!  Our daughter chose the Chocolate Milk (Php250.00).  Both our daughters give their thumbs up!

Buffy’s Pastillas de Leche also comes in different flavors.  We decided to get the original one.

Pastillas de Leche (Php158.00)

The Ice Cream comes in 5 flavors: Original, Vanilla, Strawberry, Mocha and Ube.  (Php158.00)

Creamy and milky, not too sweet.

My new favorite ice cream.  

Buffy’s Ube Flavored Ice Cream. 

Like them on Facebook, Buffy’s Milk.

Disclaimer:  I am not a super fun of either milk or ube, but Buffy’s made a big difference.  Definitely worth the trip!

Food: Cafe Aquatica Manila

Good news for everyone! 

Cafe Aquatica, that famous and relaxing fish shop / cafe in Greenhills, just opened their 2nd shop in Binondo, Manila!

It’s very near my workplace, about 5 minute walk.  This new branch is just a quaint coffee shop / restaurant.  Don’t expect something like their branch in Greenhills.  

It still has those nice aquariums though.  And when you enter the place, it’s like you’re transported out of the hustle and bustle of Chinatown!

They don’t offer everything in this branch. The menu is limited

This is what we ordered.  Take note, we were only 2!

Appetizer: Nacho Cups 

(super sulit – yummy and crunchy – only Php130.00)

Main Dish: Grilled Chicken & Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

Drinks: Almond Shake

They also offer a variety of cakes and I can’t wait to taste them all!

Let’s go to the Aquariums.  

These are Albino Angel Fishes.  They are not available in the market.  

I think the next one is called Mickey Platy because of its inborn black Mickey figure in its tail.

This next one is the Neon Fish.

If you’re in the area, why don’t  you try Cafe Aquatica. We went there for our lunch and it surely took away the stress we were feeling at work.  Such a relaxing place to be in.  With its extraordinary aquariums and soothing music, this one’s really a keeper!

Been a fan of this bakeshop since it opened in Binondo.  Was also able to drop by their Espana Branch.

I’d love to go to their Katipunan Branch because it’s huge and looks so good to just chill!  Teleport please?

Some of the cakes I already bought from them!

Food: Hot Hot Hot

wp-image-31936428jpeg.jpeg

This post is nothing like my previous posts about food.  Be prepared to get fired up as we talk about this cool store we found at Ayala Malls Serin in Tagaytay City!

The Original Hot Sauce Store is the first of its kind here in the Philippines. 

Definitely caught our attention!

Upon entering the store, displayed in the middle is the Hottest Chili Sauce in the World!  

Smokin Ed’s Carolina Reaper was awarded by the Guinness World Records for being the hottest chili last 2012.  It is grown by The PuckerButt Pepper Company (USA).  It rates an average of 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units according to tests conducted by the Winthrop University in South Carolina.

Check out this Periodic Table of Scoville Heat Units.

The Reaper is Number 54! A long time ago, Philippines’ Siling Labuyo was the hottest of them all, it’s now ranked at 38 with about 100,000 Scoville Heat Units.

These sauces may not be for us but it’s definitely a nice thing to give to those who love hot sauces!

Look at these cute names and packaging!

The owner gladly assisted us and discussed the different kinds of chilis and the many many variants of sauces.  

We bought 2 bottles to try.  It was in a simple white fabric bag with a bag tag attached to it.


An additional bag tag was also given to me! Yippee!

Food Trip: Oh My Bap Burger

Impromptu movie date with hubby led us to an impromptu food trip at the Theatre Mall.  Many may not know that behind that huge facade of popular restaurants just outside Theater Mall, lies a food court filled with unique food ideas.

One of those is Oh My Bap Burger!  Check out their extensive menu and their very affordable prices.

When we saw this place, we got curious on what they are offering.  Korean Food in a Burger. Hmmm… 

I had Bulgogi Bap Burger (Php94.00) It is basically an order of beef bulgogi with rice.  But it’s not served ordinarily.  It will be served as a burger.

The rice they used is sticky rice, so that it will form as burger buns.  

The bulgogi was stuffed in between the rice burger buns.  I liked the taste of bulgogi, not too sweet and not too salty.  

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a picture of the other bap burger as it was already devoured. Hubby’s order is Kimchi Bulgogi Burger.  Their kimchi is not spicy according to him.  It looked almost the same, except for the reddish orangey kimchi mixed with the beef bulgogi.

It’s very simple how they do it but that will be our secret for now.  You go and find out for yourself.
