In the Philippines, fast food has become a big part in the lives of many Filipinos. There are some students who prefer getting their instant food especially when they only have short breaks from school. The young professionals also choose to dine at fast food chains since it is the most convenient thing to do for them. With this being said, it's no mystery why there are countless numbers of fast food restaurants operating in the country. In Davao city, another new fast food place opened at its downtown area. Beestop Restaurant is a famous brand from General Santos city and a product of Gerardo’s School of Culinary Arts and Cake Decorating Inc.

My love for Filipino dishes will always be superior than my love for any other international cuisine. There is always "something" about the all-time favorite dishes of every Pinoy. It amazes me how different Filipinos create exceptional dishes and make their own twists in the food they prepare. For Davao foodies who also love Filipino cuisine, I am happy to announce that you can now visit a new Filipino-Seafood restaurant located at the heart of the city. This new place is called "Davao Dampa" which is now seving Dabawenyos and Dabawenyas at Tionko St. corner Arellano Street.

We always want something new, right? TGI Friday's knows this fact and wants to make us happy so they launched a new promotion for everyone. This offer is called "Tex-Mex" which features the taste of Texas and the passion of Mexico. It is available in all TGIF branches in the Philippines. Every order of any dish under this promo entitles guests to a "buy 1 take 1" on their Corona beers. New dishes included in the Tex-Mex set are Chili Ball Park Nachos, Smoked Salmon Quesadilla, BBQ Pork Tacos and Ranchero Chicken Enchiladas. The old favorite Tostado Nachos completes the set.
Last week, I was able to try all the dishes under Tex-Mex at the only TGIF restaurant in our city - Friday's Abreeza. I must say, I had a blast. My most favorite from the set is Ranchero Chicken Enchiladas because the said dish has the right amount of spice plus it is well-paired with the chorizo rice. The next in the favorite list is the BBQ Pork Tacos. The perfectly cooked pork tenderloin with crispy fries make it truly exceptional.

Go to pick your friends up from the airport after they’ve been to Portugal and the chances are they’ll have some authentic Madeira wine somewhere in their luggage. This fortified wine is going through something of surge in popularity and there are a number of reasons why this wine has been given a new lease of life.
Fortified wines were extremely popular in the past for reasons such as the low cost, the high alcohol content and the health benefits. Madeira is one such wine and was popular with past generations looking to bring a taste of the Mediterranean home from their holiday. Production of the wine itself dates back to the 16th century when sugar cane plantations were changed to vineyards on the island of the same name.
