Krispy Kreme Speculoos Cookie Butter Doughnut

Krispy Kreme recently added two new flavors for their Delectable Desserts doughnuts line. These are the Speculoos Cookie Butter Doughnuts in Vanilla & Dark Chocolate. Both are filled with cookie butter kreme and each are dipped in white and dark chocolate respectively. These are also topped with Belgian chocolate and caramel crunch for the vanilla and French biscuit for the dark chocolate doughnut.

Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter

Last month, my Facebook and Instagram feeds has been flooded with photos of Speculoos Cookie Butter. It got me curious but I ignored the urge to buy and try it a couple of times. When we tried the Famous Belgian Waffle with Hazelnut, my friend Vince told me that it tastes like Cookie Butter. This convinced me to try it.

Kanto Freestyle Breakfast - Marikina

My good friend Erik introduced us to a very nice diner called Kanto Freestyle Breakfast in Mandaluyong back in March. And we have visited the place a couple of times since then.  Kanto Freestyle in Mandaluyong is around 25 km from where we live and when we learned about their new branch in Marikina, we felt happy because it's closer and we can eat there more often!

Father's Day at Lido Cocina Tsina

About a couple of weeks ago, I asked my dad to be free on father's day. My dad normally spends his days teaching at the firing range and weekends are expected to be fully booked. But last June 16, father's day, he spent it with us. My dad, Ate Chel, Kyle and me all went out to have lunch. Daddy and I haven't been to Lido Cocina Tsina yet and this occasion would be a good reason to try it. There's a Lido Cocina Tsina branch in Cainta Rizal, just along Ortigas Avenue Extension. The place is just in our area and it's just a 15-minute drive.

Stackers Burger Café - Eastwood

Last week, me and my friends decided to have our lunch in Stackers Burger Café in Eastwood. I'm not so much of a burger eater but having Stackers is a different story. And since I am with my friends, my time there is all worthwhile.

Krispy Kreme Salted Caramel

I guess, doughnuts always brings out the kid in me and I feel a certain kind of joy whenever I see them. Before, we only have Dunkin' Donuts and Mr. Donut here in the Philippines and I remember asking my friend to bring home some Krispy Kreme from the US. I am that desperate. ☺ Around 2006, Krispy Kreme opened it's first store in Bonifacio High Street then in Megamall then in Greenhills and the rest is history. With around fifteen variants for doughnuts and some holiday flavors too, it wasn't that difficult for Krispy Kreme to capture the hearts of the Filipinos.☺

Recently, Krispy Kreme introduced to new flavors, Salted Caramel and Kreme Brulee! My friend Mikez treated us some doughnuts and I finally have a reason to taste one of the newest flavors! And a good reason to... mmm... just eat sweets! I haven't been able to have Krispy Kreme in months mainly because J.Co opened a store closer to our office.☺And we had to try J.Co too.

Famous Belgian Waffles - Eastwood City

About a couple of months ago, my friends and I have been walking around Eastwood and we saw the food stall of the Famous Belgian Waffles in Citywalk 2 in Eastwood. Well, it was really that sweet and mouthwatering aroma that made us look for it. We didn't try it at first because we thought it was expensive. I have been seeing a lot of streamers and banners around Eastwood about the Famous Belgian Waffles and I think that made me want to give it a try.

The Reunion - Racks SM Southmall

Last June 1, Paul and his cousins had a reunion. Ate Lenie came back from New Jersey and she said she would like to spend time with them even for just a day. Most of them live in the south area (Alabang, Las Pinas and Paranaque) so they decided to meet in SM Southmall. We live in Rizal so we really traveled far but I think it was all worth it.

Ate Lenie wanted to have pictures taken in Great Image so we went there first. We were twenty five in total so it was a bit difficult for the photographer to organize everyone. The kids weren't so cooperative as well. Finally, after two hours, we're done!
