Important Update Alert: TWITTERITOS
Tasteritos is looking to be more interactive than ever with our new feature we like to call TWITTERITOS. When you go out to eat, wherever you are in the world or whatever you’re eating, we’d love to hear about it! Just tweet something about the place (don’t forget to include a picture or two!), sort of like a mini-review/description, and include the hashtag #Tasteritos....
Stavros' Kebab & Mediterranean House, Amigo Plaza,...
If you live in Iloilo, and you pass by SM City, you would see that Stavros is opening at Southpoint next to Starbucks. My sister and I were so excited to see this, wishing they would hurry up and open, and then to find out that they already have a branch at Amigo. Ergo, we didn’t have to wait anymore. Lol. I find it awkward that Stavros would be found inside a mall. They serve...
The Corner House, Sydney
If you do decide to visit The Corner House at Bondi Beach, go on a Sunday evening. It’s when they have their Sunday roast, and lucky for me, this month (week?)’s roast meat is 5-hour cooked lamb shoulder, complete with sides. When you come over, though, make sure you made a reservation, and don’t come in too late, otherwise they would have ran out of the roast. I read about this...
Red Corner, Plazuela, Iloilo
So last week Poch and I decided to finally go to Red Corner in Plazuela. It was awesome but at bad timing because I had left my camera at our apartment (in our university, which is an hour and a half away from the city, where everything relevant is), so I had to make do with my crappy phone camera (for all its innovations and features Blackberry decides to hold out on a good camera). Red Corner is...
Homemade Raspberry and Vanilla Ice Cream
SPONSORED GUEST RECIPE How time flies, we’re already halfway through the summer and it’s nearly August! Have you made the most out of the summertime? If not, why not make some raspberry and vanilla swirl homemade ice cream? It’s one of the traditional summer things you can do and there’s no excuse if you have an ice cream maker sitting in your cupboard. If you...
Bento Buffet at Maki, Iloilo
So last week Poch (one of my roommates) and I went to check out the new Diversion Road branch of Daily Buns, and when we passed by Smallville, we saw the most glorious sign: Bento-Bento Buffet at Maki for only P122.50. I was definitely ready to ditch Daily Buns but the plan was to go to Daily Buns, and we’re trying this new thing where we exercise willpower (haha what). So we made a promise...
Readers, Sorry for the extreme lack of posts. We’ve each been seriously busy with school (ah, the pains of being in college) and real life and it’s been sort of difficult to be able to post regularly. However, we haven’t exactly been idle, as we actually have plans to expand Tasteritos and make it a better experience for our readers. I’m not going to say any more on the...
Coming Up: Fleur de Sel Chocolate Thins Recipe!
Baked by Melissa, New York
So where can I get cupcakes in New York? Other than the typical Magnolia and Crumbs? Well I tried Buttercup, which was okay. And there’s Sweet Revenge, which I have yet to try. But there is also Baked by Melissa! The one I went to was located at this super tiny shop in SOHO. Since I was around, I decided to try. Before we go further, I gotta tell you, the size is SMALL. And I mean...
Ben and Jerry's Red Velvet Ice Cream
This is literally one of the best inventions ever from my buddies Ben and Jerry. Sort of. The fact that I buy at least one B&J pint per week obliges them to be friends with me. In terms of flavor, it is not very authentic because the ice cream kind of tastes like those strawberry cheesecake ones. But it does have a red velvet aroma, if you know what I’m saying. But anywhoo…....
