Pork BBQ ala Air Fryer

Here's the little piggy on a stick.  Just put it in the air fryer.

Here’s the little piggy on a stick. Made a little experiment on how it would turn out if we cooked it in the air fryer.  And so we did…. 

 

....Voila! It even turned out better than the ones we grilled.  The ones on the left were cooked in the air fryer and the ones on the right, we grilled.

Taste test time:  via air fryer was even softer and tastier.  I’ve had our air fryer for a year now and still loving it!  I was just using it for kids’ meals but now, I’m into “healthier” eating so the air fryer is gonna be working double time 🙂

 

 

 

 

Wheatgrass drink

While eating dinner at Mann Hann, I spotted a wheatgrass bottled drink on their counter.  Just for the experience, I ordered one and tried it out.  OH MYYY GOOOSH!!!    I’d leave the wheatgrass on the soil.  Couldn’t take it.  This wasn’t for me.  Couldn’t even describe the taste 😛

At least I gave it a try...

DIY Pic-a Mix

I decided to make my own mix of chips instead of getting those ready ones in the grocery.  So I pulled out all the chips I had my eye on that day.  Got an entire cereal lock and lock case, poured all the chips inside and just shook it!

My own Mix!

I had Cheetos, Herrs, Lay’s and Oishi.  Loved how I could choose what taste to try next.  Of course, I had a Hershey’s bar beside me to neutralize the saltiness.  Then I’d just go back and forth.  Oh how good it was!

Try making your own, I’m sure you’ll love it!

Hai Chix & Steaks

At the back of Ortigas Home Depot, we found this Hainanese Chicken and Steak place called Hai Chix & Steaks.  I was told by a friend that if you’re too lazy to go to Makati to go to Mamou to eat steak, this place would do.

We recently tried this restaurant twice in 2weeks.

Also ordered their bestseller, Hainanese Chicken.  For us it tastes the same as others, but their chicken was soft.

Overall it was an okay experience.  Maybe we just had high expectations due to what we heard.  But we still prefer to travel to Mamou in Rockwell for some steak.   To each its own I guess 🙂

What’s your favorite steak place?

King One Hot Pot

We tried this eat all you can hot pot place, King One.  On Macapagal avenue beside Seaside, you will find this restaurant.  Having a rotary dish server, you’ll feel you’re in another country as its not common in Manila.

King One.
Food is freshly prepared in front of you.  You can just get anything from these dishes going around.

If I remember correctly, it costs 500++ Php per person.  This consists of food and their different types of iced tea.  Their meat tastes good, veggies and seafood fresh.

Unlimited everything
Unlimited everything

From Robinsons Galleria, it only took us 30-40 minutes to get there.  If you’re the type who eats a lot, this place is perfect for you.  More value for your money compared to the other places like Healthy Shabu-Shabu or Ganso Shabuway.  But if you’re one who eats like a bird, then traveling far if you’re from the north might not be worth it.

Try this place out if you want lots of food for less 🙂

Would definitely come back!
