Since my friends were craving for weird beers last Friday, we ended up spending the night at Beers paradise. Yes, yes, I'm not a beer drinker but I joined them anyway for company and have a sip of different beers.
Beer paradise features 100 kinds of imported beers from around the world. They have German beer, Belgian beers... Draft, bottled, etc. Each beer is served with its matching goblet, which I find it cool... What they ordered. Leffe,
Westmalle, Bush, Grimberger and palm. From what I heard the best beer for them that night was the leffe and bush with alcohol content of 10% and up, worst was palm(5% alcohol content). A bottle would cost around P200 and up, expensive, e! But according to them it’s worth a try. So beer drinkers will surely splurge and enjoy this place
The ambiance, I find it unusual because usually beer places are dimmed but this one is well-lighted with fluorescent light and is neat with fancy interior; the place is non-smoking and served no food except for pica-pica such as nuts and bratwurst (Sausage).
Anyway for those of you who want to have beerscapade or simply have a taste:
Beers Paradise is located along Polaris St. Makati.
(located at the back of McDo in Makati Ave.)
Open from 11 am- 4am

Dampa is a haven for seafood lovers here in Manila. Well basically the word dampa in Filipino lingo means "mini house" but was given another meaning here in Manila; it is rather a style of eatery.
“Dampa Style” eateries has basic concept which is to buy and choose your favorite food in their wet-market stalls and then hand it to your chosen restaurant to have it cooked the way you like.
There are several dampa places here in metro, the 3 most popular places were- Paranaque which was the original dampa place, then there was one in libis and the one in Macapagal...
Let me concentrate on Macapagal, since this is the last one I went to. Well, the place is much bigger and cleaner than the one in Paranaque and Libis. It has a spacious parking area at the back - Of course,the area itself smells fishy since it is a market place and since most of the stalls sell seafood products (but yes they also sell meat products). There are around 40+ restaurants to choose from...
Tuna Belly- P300/kilo
Shirmp- P300- 600 /kilo depending of size
Lobster- Around P1000/kilo
Cooking service is around P100 and up.... I just hope you choose the best restaurant and yeah a fresh products too.... Good luck!!!

Tony Roma's is an American family restaurant chain world famous for its ribs.Tony Roma's menu also features a variety of other signature rib products as well as flame-grilled specialties such as sizzling steaks, legendary barbecued chicken, succulent seafood and all time American favorites like onion loaf, potato skins, baked potato soup, salads and hamburgers.
True... they served mouth-watering baby back ribs. The Glorietta branch as a laid back atmosphere that encourages relaxed dining. They have a very accommodating and knowledgeable staff...
Tony Roma's star-studded sampler. P945
It is delicious( They have maintaned their baby back ribs consistently over the years which is very very good) - served with choice of 2 side dishes. We chose coleslaw and baked potato.
Serving is good for 4-6 pax.
Ooohhh they also served combo meals such as this ... tender juicy grilled steak and salmon combo. It is certainly good ....
I'm sorry but I've not taking note of the price lately...

Halo-halo when directly translated to English it is "mix-mix". From wiki it is a popular Filipino dessert and is a mixture of shaved ice and milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans and fruits, and served cold in a tall glass or bowl.
Razon's of Guagua Pampanga is well known for their famous halo-halo.P65. I personally like their halo-halo for me the flavours is just right, not too sweet, ice is crashed to finest... YUM!!!
Menu is not that extensive, the serving is not big as well (just good for snack). Here halo-halo can be paired with their good sourly tasting dinuguan (pork blood stew) with puto (Pinoy rice cake).P90. or their tasty Pancit luglog(noodles).P65.
Good thing is that branches are scattered all over Metro Manila - in the malls, in greenhills and etc...
