Beiruti Bite Express, Taguig

Nowadays, the people want everything in a snap because a lot of things are needed to keep up. While you find that your weekdays are loaded with many things to do or you just want to have a quick snack to munch before attending your responsibilities, there are kiosks that can answer your hungriness like Beiruti Bite Express.

My former workmate, Vanessa, and I ordered moutabal (P49) for the appetizer.  Moutabal is an eggplant dip that is mixed with lemon juice, sesame paste, and garlic drizzled with olive oil. It is served with a pita bread that is soft and warm.

Instead of ordering shawarma, we ordered rice meal. I got shawarma beef rice (P109) and Vanessa ordered the shawarma chicken rice. To my surprise, I find that the chicken tastes better than the beef for the rice meal.

I met the manager and the owner of Beiruti and they let us have a take out of the Beiruti Sandwich that is shawarma beef. I did not get to take a photo because the presentation did not look good anymore because of transporting from Taguig to QC, haha. Luckily, I was able to take a photo of the menu. They got a regular size and a titan size. We only got the regular size coz I tell you that the titan size is really huge. It’s larger than the size of a man’s face. Really, I’m not exaggerating here. I’d prefer to choose the beef meat for sandwich.shawarma sandwich

Their shawarma sandwich smells nice. It’s not the shawarma we usually have here that has a pungent smell of the meat. No wonder that there are many people who would stop by at this kiosk in my observation while we were eating.

Lastly, they also gave us a minted lemonade shake for only P50! The glass is also huge and I like that this one cleanses your palate after eating shawarma. If you like a herbal taste and to freshen up, I would recommend this.minted lemonade shake

I would like to thank Ms. May of What To Eat Ph for letting us try Beiruti Bite Express.

The place is just normal but they have a seat where you can eat your food but the price is pocket-friendly and the serving is really good to fill you up. There is just a thing to improve with regards to service.  It would take awhile to have your food because there’s only two of them who prepares it. The taste met my preference because it does not smell nor taste too strong plus their meat is really good.

The World of Robinsons Magnolia

Shopping and dining is even more rewarding when these are all done in one location. Thankfully, we’ve got malls to allow us to do these things all in one go. However, there are only a handful of malls that house boutiques and restaurants that you could rarely find, a mall that is not congested with people, and one that has a condominium nearby. Last May 13, I was able to experience the life I could have if ever live in Robinsons Residences thanks to RJ Ledesma of Mercato Centrale, Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet and Robinsons Residences. The Magnolia Residences offers both 36sqm one-bedroom and 78sqm executive two-bedroom units. The media headed first to the Magnolia Residences’ showroom, which truly wowed us.

It truly felt like shopping and dining were just next door since the idea is to clearly make life convenient for those dwelling at the Magnolia Residences. Thus part of our itinerary was to head next to Robinsons Magnolia.  We went to Robinsons Magnolia food court located at the ground floor to visit three stores. We went straight to C’Verde by Big Chill, the first vegetarian quick-service restaurant. There, I munched on Bean and Cheese Taquitos. Next, we went to Zigla. Here, zizigla ka talaga (pun intended), because they prepare freshly-cooked food. However, we tried the pre-prep Tuna and Cheese Sandwich with high-fiber whole wheat loaf. We then went to Pad Thai. The store offers authentic Thai dishes, but at an affordable price. We got to try their Pad Thai Chicken. Considering that we went to the mall’s food court, Robinsons Magnolia has healthy and delicious offerings. I’d recommend the place to people who are figure-conscious.Image

We satisfied our sweet tooth by heading to the House of Silvanas. I’ve already seen some of its stalls in different malls. However, during our visit, I was able to taste their meringue wafer for the first time. This dessert comes in pandan (too sweet), strawberry (mildly sweet), mango (so-so), and ube (my right kind of sweet) flavors.  Despite their varying sweetness, they are all still luscious. Next, we visited Villa del Conte, which offers authentic Italian chocolates. Their watermelon chocolate is superb, but their praline ball is also excellent. Gosh, I just love how it satisfied my chocolate cravings!


Sir RJ Ledesma, being the host, warned us that our tummies will be filled with more carbs as we were going to have our dinner at The Clubhouse and Gaucho. The Clubhouse is a house of modern comfort food and its ambience is cozy since its interiors felt like home. We had Tuyo Rice Bowl with pineapple salsa, Truffle Mushroom Scramble (the flavor is so-so), Hungarian Sausage & Eggs, and Vigan Longganisa Hash (I fell in love with this one the most). I’m going to marry The Clubhouse in the coming days.Image

The dinner’s mood shifted from cozy to stiff as we set foot to the two-level Argentinean-inspired restaurant called Gaucho. I describe the place’s ambience as stiff, because it is a fine-dining restaurant. However, the friendly staff makes up for all the stiffness. Their Falda ala Cruz (US Beef Shortplate) is tender and yummy. Meanwhile, their Cochino ala Cruz (native suckling pig) did not appeal to my taste buds. However, their Cordero Entero ala Cruz (Australian Young Lamb) was tasty and smelled really fresh.  Argentines are meat lovers so swirling a red wine is a must when dining in an Argentinean-inspired resto!


I don’t know if you guys already know this trivia, but for those who don’t, then this one’s for you: It was in this place where Magnolia Ice Cream House was situated before.


But hey, Robinsons has reconstructed a place that will make your eyes happy and your tummies groan. There are a lot of establishments to remember, but I guarantee you that all the places we’ve been to truly made our night. I like Crepe Parfait! With the heaps of ice cream we had, we never had to scream for more ice cream!

Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Champ Presents Thor

My mom dad, and I frequently feel lazy to cook dinner when it is a Sunday, so every time that I leave at night to attend the mass, I would order take-out. Yeah, right! We don’t go to church together, because I always wake up late. For dinner, I ended up wanting to pair the spaghetti—given to us by our dear neighbor who celebrated his birthday—with Jollibee’s Champ burger.

Honestly, I have tasted a ton of burgers. I have tried the very affordable Angel’s Burger, Minute Burger, and McDonald’s Burger, as well as the pricier offerings of Brother’s Burger, Brgr Project, Army Navy, and Stackers Burger Café. It’s quite a long list, but I really can’t remember the others. Anyway, it is too shameful to admit that I haven’t tasted Champ in my entire life. Finally, I had the chance to try one.

I made a beeline for the counter and looked at the menu while waiting. I saw a new offer called Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Champ and was encouraged to try it, because I love bacon! Who doesn’t? I guess Champ and I will have to meet another time.

This new offering is in line with the much-awaited sequel to the first Thor movie, Thor 2: The Dark World, which will be in theaters on October 30, 2013. The promo started last October 16 and will run until November 16, 2013. Avail it a la carte for P129.00 or get the Value Meal which is priced at P165.00.

On my way home, I was thinking about the hearty helping of bacon strips, cheese sauce, and mushrooms on top of the burger patty. My eyes shimmered with delight since it has been a long time since I last ate a burger. I’ve been masticating chicken and sisig a lot lately, and it’s not healthy. I felt really satisfied with the Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Champ, because it’s so tasty, and the serving is rather generous.

I added P95.00 to get this cute Thor Hammer Mjolnir which actually encases a 1 GB flashdrive. It’s a great collector’s item, isn’t it? Also, the hammer is so lightweight. Maybe I’m now as strong as Thor!
