A Taste of Mexico at Mexicanto

If you love mexican fastfood, then head off to Cucina Andare and visit Mexicanto.

I love their freshly prepared nachos and quesadillas! Quesadillas is similar to a flat bread filled with cheese and burst of flavors.

You can catch Mexicanto at Cucina Andare every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4PM to 3AM. Contact 0917-8401152 or email for food stall/truck inquiries.

Healthy Options at My Yellow Kitchen

My Yellow Kitchen is vegan. It offers healthy snack alternatives. I love their Creamy Adobo Pasta (100 pesos per order).

The white sauce goes well with the pasta and it tastes well minus the meaty sauce I am used to. The Filipino national dish Adobo takes on a form courtesy of My Yellow Kitchen's owner, Marion Bisque.

Delectable Choices at Cuisiniers

Cuisiniers is owned by Miss Andrea Dela Cruz and Chef Raymund Fabre, who perfected his family's barbecue recipe. They offer Chicken Barbecue Legs for 75 pesos. Get the thigh part for 80 pesos and pay only 15 pesos with rice.

Their chicken barbeque is worth a try! The tasty chicken meat is tender with no charred parts! The sweet-salty mix is superb! You sure would go for second servings.
Cuisiniers serve lean meats.  The Pork Barbeque (100 pesos for 3 sticks), comes perfectly grilled and tender as well.

I love Cuisiniers'  sisig version but I love their Roast Beef even more!

The roasted meat is so flavorful and soft. I just can't get enough of it when it was served to us!

Healthy Mushroom Fries by Ping Gu

I was invited to CUCINA ANDARE, the first Food Truck Market and Food Bazaar in the Philippines at the Glorietta Park, Ayala Center, Makati City last week and boy, it was such an experience!

The same organizers that brought you successful morning and night food markets like Midnight Mercato in Bonifacio Global City now brings you CUCINA ANDARE!  It offers specialty and gourmet food, new drinks and pastry choices from Makati home-based food businesses.
What caught my attention was theMushroom Fries by Ping Gu !

Mr. and Mrs. Joven serve the freshest batch of organic, oyster mushrooms in every order.  Ping Gu uses a special breading to cover each mushroom and then deep fry the battered mushrooms to perfection using Canola Oil.

You may choose from Garlic Mayo, Tomato Ketchup, Gravy and Sweet Chili sauses to dip in the crispy, healthy snack.  I find Garlic Mayo goes very well with the Mushroom Fries as it enhances its flavors.

Ping Gu mushroom fries are available in Single (100g) 79 pesos, Double (200g) 149 pesos, and Triple (300g) 229 pesos.

Ping Gu Mushroom Fries  P100,000 in 2012's Next Big Food Entrepreneur Contest and expansion plans are on its way according to its owners.

Remember to catch Ping Gu at Cucina Andare, Glorietta Park, Makati on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 4pm - 2am.
