Hello Sweeties!

Such a great foodie find in Quezon City is 5 Loaves and 2 Fish. It is a relatively new restaurant located at The Rock Barangay Holy Spirit in Quezon City. 

This is the reason when I received the invitation to the foodie event for 5 Loaves and 2Fish I happily accepted.

Ms. Dinah Miro, owner and creative foodie of 5 Loaves and 2 Fish

According to Ms. Dinah Miro, owner and the creative heart of the restaurant the path to launching their restaurant was not simple. Prior to the opening they encountered a lot of challenges along the way. One of which is the naming of the establishment, they had a lot of different names in mind of the restaurant all of which are already taken and registered. It was around mind July 2015 when finally found the perfect name found in the bible verse John 6:1-14 which talks about the miracle of the 5 Loaves and 2 Fish, and the rest as they say is history.

One of the restaurants speciality is the very unique bread called Lavosh, unleavened flat bread that originated in Armenia.  a thin crisp bread used mostly to scoop food and it is the perfect appetizer to start a meal. It is served with the homemade pesto brûlée or chicken liver pate.

Come August, they will come out with the sweet Lavosh, they will be using cacao.

Trivia about Ms. Dinah’s Lavosh, it won an award at Merchant Central’s Ultimate Taste Test 2011,  organized by foodies Anton Diaz of (Our Awesome Planet ) and RJ Ledesma (well-known media celebrity, columnist, events host and author)

Homey Family feel.

As I enter this two story shop. There is a mezzanine on the 2nd level. I found that it reminds me a lot of the Mom and Pop shops my parents used to take me when I was younger. Such a welcoming homey feel about it that you automatically relax as you sit down.

Event: J.CO Launches their all new premium Affogato Series at the new concept store SM East Ortigas

J.CO Coffee and Donuts newest concept store locates at SM East Artigas Branch

Hello Sweeties!

My kids and I have always been fans of J.CO Donuts and Coffee, when it first opened I would brave the long cue after work just to bring home 2 dozen boxes of my Jarod’s favorite Al Capone.

Summers are long and hot. My kids were getting very bored, and were looking for new snacks. Fortunately, J.CO Donuts is offering its new Affogato series to help beat the heat and boredom  in the most delectable way possible.

For the curious,  the affogato is an Italian coffee based dessert, a traditional adffogato usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped or “drowned” with a shot of hot espresso.

Team J.CO built on the  Affogato concept and came up with three different cooler variants to cater to three discerning taste of their fans. Using beans sourced from the Sumatra and Sulawesi regions in Indonesia, each cup ensures quality, delicious flavor, and intense strength.

I braved the traffic of Ortigas extension to attend the launch of the premium Affogato Series at J.CO’s newest concept store.
