I finally convinced my mom to try food tripping (no, not really, lol) in Maginhawa st. in Quezon city. We drove along the whole of Maginhawa st., and stopped over at the Burger Project. Yay, I’ve been dying to try that! It’s fun because you get to choose what’s on your burger! It’s also not that pricey so the toppings, sauce– everything, is worth your money. 

After satisfying our bellies with ze burgers, we went to Zugbu (it’s along Maginhawa st as well) to buy liempo for dinner. They serve THE best liempo in my area.


 Last August 6, 2011, I was invited to the Opening of Zugbu Liempo at Maginhawa st. UP Village. What is Zugbu Exactly? Simply described in its native tongue as “Lami-a Oy,” Zugbu-Liempo embraces sarap in its purest form.


When translated, Zugbu or Sugbu comes to mean “Old Cebu,” an era where Lechon was traditionally prepared through a carefully produced marinade of a secret mix of herbs and spices before being roasted to perfection — crispy on the outside, tender, tasty and juicy on the inside. This method of cooking did away with preservatives and artificial seasoning, a practice of enhancing and not masking the true flavors of the chosen meat. Zugbu-Liempo now brings this delicious secret to Manila, giving our favorite Chicken and Liempo a twist, now cooked the way they should be — the Zugbu way. 

And here are some of the snippets of the opening:

We arrived with no more Liempo for us! So they had to cook more! Everyone loved it!

CELEBRITY SPOTTED: Regine and Pamela with Kathleen Hermosa. She loves and supports Zugbu

For the first time ever in my life, I was given my own Media Press Kit, because I am a blogger. It felt professional! heehee. Inside the kit were enough information on what Zugbu is about! Plus points for the effort and the design of the Press Kit!

They also had photobooth and of course, we took advantage! Pictures with Rej, Louie, and Tanya!

The funniest and best Zugbu Boys! You’ll see them when you visit and eat!

I personally think that it also goes well with my favorite Milk tea, Moonleaf! And since it was really near Zugbu, Rej and I decided to buy our fave Wintermelon Milk Tea!

Going back to Zugbu, For a taste of the Zugbu-Liempo experience, visit them at the Maginhawa Strip, Quezon City’s newest hub of yummy treasures! Drop by at 79 Maginhawa Street, UP Village, Diliman, Quezon City. Like them on Facebook for more information on their products and promos!

FOOD: Sebastian's, Zugbu, Bodhi.

This is mainly about the things that are churning in my stomach right now.

Helping out my bestest buddy move out this week, so we’re gonna be eating A LOT.

First off we have Sebastian’s.

Sebastian’s is famous for it’s pinoy themed sorbetes. By pinoy themed, as in srsly. 

The first we tried are these:

SAPIN-SAPIN. Sebastian’s pinoy sorbetes is much gooey-er than regular icecream because it’s made with real kakanin — real rice! Sapin-sapin is a mix of what you have in a normal sapin-sapin, in ice-cream form! The latik topping is a winner!!!

COOKIE DOUGH. need i say more?

1 scoop is P100, 2 scoops is P180. But one scoop is enough for me kasi it’s ginormous


Next time i wanna try CHAMPORADO and MANGGA’T SUMAN!

also ice cream bars..

And they also have ice cream sandwiches @ P130 each. We tried their bestseller:

FUDGE TRUFFLEBURGER. it looks like a hopia here. All rolled in cocoa like an oversized truffle.


and bursting with the gooey goodness of the fudge filled center!!!!!! :3333

Next is Zugbu Liempo in Maginhawa St., (because Al Fahkr is still nowhere to be found)

Quarter Chicken is usually P75 (with Coke) but since they didn’t have Coke that time this was only P65! SUPER SULITZ!

and then last is my usual go-to place for foodcourt days AKA when im poor, BODHI (vegetarian food stuff!). That’s asado and something for my buddy. Hindi ko alam na 95 na pala ang dalawang ulam ngayon, dati 85 lang :(

and this is mine, Kare-kare and adobong mushrooms! :D :D :D
