The Manila Hotel serves Certified Halal Dishes for Takeout and Delivery

Halal foods are being served at The Manila Hotel's Cafe Ilang-Ilang

Muslims around the world celebrate the end of the fasting period of Ramadan with Eid al-Fitr, the Festival of Breaking the Fast this May 12, 2021. It is celebrated through prayer, gifts, and lavish feast. While the country is predominantly Catholic, Islam is the second largest religion in the country. No wonder, Filipinos have become fond of Halal foods.

Halal food is prepared following a set of Islamic dietary laws and regulations that determine what is permissible, lawful and clean. Any dish can be halal, as long as the meat used is religiously slaughtered and no pork or alcohol is involved.

Bulalo World's Frozen Original Beef Bulalo by Food Review


Filipino favorite Beef Bulalo

For the record, I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like Beef Bulalo or Filipino Beef Marrow Soup. That being said, I assume that everyone loves bulalo. Native to the Southern Luzon region of the country, Bulalo is a comforting light colored soup with rich beef broth made from hours of simmering beef shanks and bone marrow bones. The procedure is painstaking as the collagen and fat has to be melted into the clear broth. Seasonings vary from chef to chef but staple ingredients are usually composed of salt, black pepper and fish sauce, garlic etc. Although just like adobo, there have been many versions of bulalo across the country but at its core, bulalo is a simple cattleman’s stew, best cooked in a large cauldron with whatever vegetables available. Some use potatoes, corn, pechay, cabbage, string beans, onion leeks, among many others. 

Bulalo is one of my favorite Filipino dishes! My family and I wouldn’t really mind driving all the way up to Tagaytay City if we’re really craving for this particular dish. It’s a treat to eat especially during monsoon season, cold rainy days or during pre-holiday season. I personally like eating Bulalo because it’s a filling stew that’s deceptively light. The soup alone with rice and dipping sauce is good enough for a meal. 

However, if you’re too lazy to cook, doesn’t have much patience to wait for it to cook or to even drive to Tagaytay where several restaurants are specializing in this dish. I recently discovered you can have it delivered at home via—yes, they can deliver frozen bulalo meals from popular brand, Bulalo World. So you can be assured to still have that restaurant-quality meal while you’re at the comfort of your home.

Coffee That's Really Good For You: Glorious, Isn't It?


Sweet & Fit Stevia is best for coffee and tea especially if you're diabetic. 

For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes.

While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day.
