Hayashi Breads

>> Monday, August 31, 2015


This is new here in Cagayan de Oro City. An overdue post for something I so wanted to share. In photo are Yaki Manju and Shio Pan.


The Yaki Manju, or better known as the Pandesal, is so good. It's better than Shirogi and Balolong combined. At the same price, I would choose Yaki Manju. The Shio Pan is also very good. It's an affordable Sio Pao that tastes yummy and affordable too. These breads are just two of the three kinds of breads they serve at the Cogon Branch, which, I was told, is their 7th branch, WOW! 

Next time, we'll try the Kare Pan or the Chicken Curry Bread.. I was told it's yummy too.

Lunch at Eden's Solace, Indahag

>> Tuesday, March 31, 2015


Today we went to Eden's Solace in Indahag. A very nice break from our very busy routine now that we are catching up on paperwork and finalizing documents to submit for clearances. While our forms are lined up for verification, we set off to have lunch in one of the newly developed tourist sites in the city. It was already 12:40 when we left, and we were already hungry so we bought sticky rice to eat. That's Biko and Puto Maya.. just enough to keep us in good shape during the drive.. We were already seeing doubles before this, hehehehe.. 


The Halang2x was with us so we knew we still have food to eat when we arrive there, hehehe.. The first batch left before 12 noon and they were already eating when they called us to give directions.. They have forgotten about the Halang2x at the table at the office.. Good thing we were divided in batches in going there.. Thanks to Sir Luther and Maam May for the ride going there and back to school.. 


When we arrived, we saw that the place was heavenly... but we were hungry so we went ahead and had lunch at already 1:45 pm.. What's left of the Lechon.. hehehe


After eating, we explored the place.. Took pictures, laughed.. enjoyed our time while there.. 


This place is atop a mountain so you can see every part of the city from every direction.. We saw that there were still many amenities being built, and even the restaurant that shall serve food to the tourists is not yet in service at that time. That is why we were able to bring our own food.. By and by, their own resto will operate and people and go there and dine while enjoying the view and the fresh air.. 


See? That cottage to your left was where we had our lunch.. The one being built at the right is the kitchen.. The main cottage in the middle is supposedly the restaurant area.. 


What I love most in every cottage is that, lines from my favorite poems are posted in a corner or so.. The owner must be very poetic himself.. 


After a few hours there, we had to go back to school to finish our work.. It was good that we bonded together as a department.. 


On our way back, we had to go and take the long and winding road again...

Bibingka Mania

>> Saturday, June 21, 2014


I was looking for a ride last night after buying wreath from one of the stalls of flower shops near St. Augustine Cathedral when I chanced upon this quaint and charming food place that sells Bibingka.. I love bibingka, so I bought one for P 50 only, not for me, but for my family to try. 


Bibingka Manila is actually selling Manila/Luzon style bibingka with salted eggs. The last time I was able to eat some was when I was still living there for work related reasons.. It was good. So I was also excited to taste some of the Bibingka I bought. 



We were scheduled to go home to our parents for the weekend so it is but timely to enjoy this treat.. It was past dinnertime when we tasted the treat. Of course, it was good. Will buy some more next time..

Nanay Choleng's Chocoleit Muron

>> Tuesday, April 1, 2014



During our NC Fiesta, the staff of Nanay Choleng's Chocoleit Muron sold some of their fave treat.. and they sold like hotcakes.. In just a few minutes they had to send for more to be delivered on site..


The Muron costs P 22 per piece but the price is right for the quality and taste of the Muron. Plus, it came with this really attractive packaging. It looks clean and presentable that you wouldn't think it's Muron that you have in your stash.. hehehe


My family have always been a fan of Tacloban delicacies, and Muron is just one of them. Here in Cagayan de Oro City, it is always difficult to find the best Muron as it is a food treat that is rooted in another city. We can only get one that's original when someone from Tacloban would visit. But now that Nanay Choleng's Chocoleit Muron is here, we no longer have that unfulfilled craving.. hehehe


We bought two packs for Pasalubong as we were also scheduled to go home to our parents' house in Opol the next day.. 


But of course we had to sample our share at home when we arrived after the NC Fiesta.. The inner part is filled with yumminess.. See the chocolate and peanuts? It's what is missing in all other Muron sold in the city. 


My share is just one bite, considering I am on a special program. But it makes me happy to know that my family is happy with our Pasalubong.. 

Anyway, you can find a stall of Nanay Choleng's Chocoleit Muron in almost all malls in Cagayan de Oro City. Plus they have special sauces to go with your order if you buy from the stalls. They can also be found at the Mercato de Oro..

MINT Brownies from Choco Eight..

>> Wednesday, April 10, 2013



How would you like to stare into this yumminess? Hahaha.. Sorry, I am just teasing. I know you are drooling right now, and I must tell you that what you are staring at, truly is worth the stare you are giving... 

 In case you are wondering, that's the Mint Brownies from ChocoEight... 

And just like you, I was staring at the photos long enough that I finally decided to order, hahaha...

One box is P 460 and you get twenty Chocolate Mint Brownies.. The last time I ordered cupcakes from Margaret So, we met at Robinsons, but this order, I had to go fetch the box of brownies at their pet shop, One Eight. It was quite far fro me, but I guess it was well worth it. Oh, in case you wanna order, do leave a comment, and I will tell you where..

Another Tita Fannies Branch

>> Sunday, August 19, 2012

We were invited to attend the grand opening of the newest branch of Tita Fannies last August 15, 2012 and we were delighted to see that the Xavier University-Divisoria Branch is spacious and could accommodate lots of patrons.

The staff were busy with the guests and customers.. 
We were entertained by a local singer with the same last name as mine.. And after our early lunch, we had photos taken with the manager and the owner, plus the marketing officer.. 

Just like all other branches of Tita Fannies, they have the Liempo de Lechon that is their signature dish, as well as all the other food that you can find at their other branches. From Lechon Manok to desserts, to sea foods.  Below were the food they served us.. 





 The Lumpia Shanghai is my new favorite..

Thanks Richard Celeste for the invitation..

Chicken Proven (Proventriculus of Chicken)

>> Wednesday, May 23, 2012


I have always wanted to post about this street food that people love to eat, not only here in Cagayan de Oro City, but in other parts of the Philippines. However, I am not able to do so because I find the smell of used oil too intoxicating, especially when simply passing by Pabayo Street, where stalls selling Chicken Proven have sprouted like mushrooms for years and counting, leaving the street totally unhygienic and polluted. Simply put, I am NOT a fan of the food they are selling there. 

But one time, while waiting for my mom to come down from her office building, we parked the car just beside this singular stall that sells Chicken Proven. Actually, I wouldn't know about it if my father didn't mention it. I didn't smell any stinky odor of used oil, and the place was clean enough. There were even two tables for two groups to occupy, should that be the case. 


And just like all other stalls, they sell compact rice, in lieu of "puso", or hanging rice. Most of their customers here are students from the schools nearby, as well as passersby coming from the different offices in the area.


Although there is just one attendant at that time, she was able to show me how fast their service is, in a clean and organized fashion. 


What makes the Chicken Proven more tasty is the sauce.. But unlike those we saw at Pabayo Street, the sauces are placed in closed containers, which only gets opened when customers use them, as they drizzle the sauce on the Chicken Proven. 


There are two types of sauce. One is Spicy and Hot, that's the one with brownish color, and the Spicy and Sweet, in orange color. With sauces in their containers, you are assured there is NO DOUBLE DIPPING here..

Now if you're wondering how Chicken Proven is made, it is made out of the proventriculus of a chicken, seasoned and coated with flour or corn starch, then deep-fried and served with vinegar dipping or a specially-made sauce (sweet and sour ketchup mixed with pepper, etc). In Cagayan de Oro City, you may try Chicken Proven located in many different places like divisoria, Corrales Avenue along Xavier University, and as mentioned above, Pabayo-Chavez streets. Find them in several "stalls" in these streets. Chicken Proven costs 5 pesos (less than $USD 1 = 42 pesos [varies]) per stick. Although Chicken Proven is quite addicting, especially with specially-made sauce, I must warn you that it is bad for the health. A little may be okay, but eating them every day won't be good for the body. Think of uric acid and gall bladder/kidney stones. Get the picture? Since Chicken Proven would go well with "puso" (a type of rice wrapped in coconut leaves and steamed sold at 5 pesos each), some people eat them as regular daily meals. The combination may satisfy  hunger in an instant, and may be easy for the budget, but let's all be conscious of its long-term effect.. 

And again, there is no other Chicken Proven I can recommend in this city, but the one located at Tiano/Del Pilar Streets.. Lastly, this is NOT a paid post.. Just a happy customer..

Liempo King

>> Monday, April 16, 2012




My sister and I went to eat lunch at this small food shop near her former school, with her wearing her scrub tops, after her weekly rounds at the place where she works. It's actually just beside The Barn, and eating at this new joint is actually a good experience for us. The staff  were nice, and the food arrived on time.

Their approach to cooking Liempo is quite different from the usual fair. Although there have been many Liempo places which sells Liempo in a Lechon-like manner, Liempo King offers a different experience as one takes a bite of the bits and pieces of sliced Liempo. From the size when it was cut, marinated and broilled, Liempo King Liempo looks totally like a whole new face of Liempo. The taste is commendable as it is cooked just right. What's more, the crispiness of Lechon skin can be crunched upon evey Liempo King liempo skin.. I wouldn't say it's better than lechon though, but, it is better than other Lechon-Liempo products that's around Cagayan de Oro City.. 


Lookie... it is yummy inside and out.. Crunchy skin, tasty meat that imagining it while doing this post makes me salivate... hahahaha

Alberto's Pizza

>> Sunday, October 23, 2011




This is an overdue post. Some weeks ago, we waited for my sister from her errand and we met at Alberto's Pizza at Gaerlan Street.


Alberto's Ham and Egg Pizza which has Ham, Ham Sausage, Hamonado, Egg, Tomatoes and Onions . It was actually new to me to have egg as one of the key ingredients in a pizza.  For a P 100, for 9 inch and P 140 for 12 inches, it's a good buy. Affordable yet high on flavors. 


Alberto's Meaty Royale Pizza which has Hungarian Sausage, Pepperoni, Salami, Ham and Bacon with real Mozzarella Cheese, P 230 for a 12 inch pizza is superb. Good taste, yet affordable for the pockets.  


Alberto's has been around since two years ago, I think, but first I tasted it was in Cebu. It was just recently that I heard it has come to CDO. And I didn't really know where it was located until just a few months ago. 


Click on the image above for details of this pizza joint. There are lots of different flavors to choose from and delivery is actually free.
