Started as a small bakery, this pasalubong shop is named after a French word for “thank you.” Mr. Jonathan Lo labelled their family venture when he was studying abroad. Merci is one of the strong-growing pasalubong stores in Bacolod. They have two shops in Iloilo City and promise to spread more branches soon. It offers also a lot of pasalubong treats to keep customers satisfied.

Are you waiting for an affordable and savory Chinese-themed restaurant? The wait is over! Cebu-based Dimsum Break is finally now in Manila!
Last November 17 at SM North Edsa Annex, Dimsum Break has officially opened to the public with their 23 selections from steamed to fried dimsum. I was blessed to be there and relished their delectable treats. Well, I fell in love with their distinct dim sum dishes like stuffed taro, stuffed shrimps, crab pincers, and more than any other, the bacon shaomai. Shaomai, Dimsum Break’s version of siomai.

For less than P1,000 pesos, no maximum number of people, you can afford to stay in a relaxing and nature loving resort. Also, there are types of food to offer here – from exotic to easy. The resort’s buffet lunch is available at minimum of P150/person. Carayan Resort has the feel at home vibe, pleasantly decorated rooms, clean pools, and amazingly made from junk equipment to help maintain its wonderful environment.

Balut, penoy, pulang itlog na maalat… heaven! Along with my #TheRoadTrippers pals, we indulged in these thrilling yet tasty eggs located in Victoria, Laguna. Thumbs up!

Of course, you can’t just leave Bicol without trying their original Bicol Express. Right? Chili overload! *woop*

LakadPilipinas and I went here just to taste the famous sili ice cream(pink one). And we did! How was it? Fierce savor aftermath. Haha! I don’t want to spoil it so I’ll let you be the judge. Anyhow, we also tried their other ice cream flavors such as coffee, kalamansi, melon, vanilla, bailey, malunggay, tinutong, and of course, pili. My fave is tinutong or toasted rice ice cream. So addictive! Aside from ice cream, authentic Bicol dishes are also available in this cafe/restaurant. Hopefully next time, I’ll try to nibble them all! *takaw mode*
You want baluko? It’s a fleshy shellfish, an exotic food from Bicol. It has a very distinct bitter taste at first but when you chew it up even more, it isn’t as bad as you think it is. So meaty! You should also try this with vinegar dip. ;)
