Sweet Kiss Lecheng Ube (Ube Caramel) Cake Food Review

What happens when you combine two well-loved Filipino flavors in one awesome cake? If you love leche flan (custard) and ube (purple yam), chances are, you'd be delighted to learn that both flavors are available in a single cake so you never had to choose again between those two. I recently stumbled upon this cake as I was browsing online searching for chocolate moist cake which my fiance specifically wanted for his birthday. There have been so many food trends nowadays that it gets difficult to choose which ones to try. But I was glad to have found Sweet Kiss on Instagram.

Discover the Sinfully Delicious Too Much Chocolate Chip Cookie by the Fet Boys

Aah, chocolate chip cookies. The mere mention of those is enough to make me salivate. Whether you like them gooey, crispy, or somewhere in the middle, cookie lovers everywhere seem to agree that these treats are a national standard. If you live in the South, then consider yourself lucky--because there's a best-kept secret of the south called Too Much Chocolate Chip Cookie by The Fet Boys. Only die-hard Southern people know about them. Their cookies are so good, maybe people don't want to share for fear of being sold out which it almost always is. 

The Fet Boys are twin brothers Karl and Kirk Ngo although Kirk is the one who bakes all the time. The Too Much Chocolate Chip Cookie is his creation and this comes in both GIANT and regular size.  I bet, even Sesame Street's Cookie Monster character would be happy to know that the giant-sized Too Much Chocolate Chip Cookies are also made giant in terms of its taste.

What can Chiropractors help you with?

If you happen to experience an aching back or a stiff neck, you might benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. They aren't necessarily medical doctors but they are still trained medical professionals who use their hands to relieve pain in the spine and in other affected areas of your body that needs the necessary adjustment. 

In my recent blog post, I had shared with you my very first visit to Mabuhay Chiropractic Clinic where I had my assessment by Nick Fleming, the resident chiropractor at their SM North Edsa The Block branch.

Chef Kofi's Malabon Noodles Delight: Experience an upgraded Pancit Malabon

Who doesn't love pancit noodles? I think we all do. Regardless if it's instant noodles (which most of us consume these days due to the pandemic and the fast paced world), noodles are one of the easiest things to do and a good alternative to our usual rice. Introduced by the Chinese, we Filipinos have since adapted the noodle dish to our own tastes, resulting in variations like canton, Malabon, and palabok. As they say in the vernacular, "nagkakatalo na lang sa toppings at ingredients." Each noodle dish has its own unique sauce, toppings, and the right balance offlavors incorporated on the noodles sans the umay factor (not cloying). 

If you're still looking for that noodle dish that will make you believe that pancit dish can be leveled up, allow me to introduce my latest food discovery: Chef Kofi's Malabon Noodles Delight. I love the luglog thick clear noodles of Malabon. One of my good friends Sir Tony Galvez (yes, the famous hair expert) made me try Chef Kofi's Malabon Noodle Delight because he knew that I'm also a food blogger. 

So what is it about Chef Kofi's Malabon Noodles Delight that makes it a stand-out? Chef Kofi's version of pancit Malabon is more on the dry side and while their toppings are modest in number, the tinapa, chicharon, and crispy shrimp make up for it with flavor. Their sauce also has a hint of zest even without calamansi (Philippine lemon). It is also mildly flavored especially when compare to other pancit Malabon I've previously tried. But the trick is really in its toppings--with the noodles and sauce to get a flavorful bite. There is just enough sauce to cover the noodles without turning it soggy, which is perfect if you like your pancit noodles like me, as I like my noodles with a bit of bite. Somewhat al dente, like in pasta. 

Where to Get the Best Cake Loaves: Check out Chef MG's on Facebook

The nutritional content of what we eat determines the composition of our cell membranes, bone marrow, blood, hormones, tissue, organs, skin, and that even includes our hair. Having said that, we had to also take care of what we eat--it is important to consume nutritious foods for us to achieve clearer skin, healthy growing hair and you know, just about glowing and in the pink of health. 

NOVUHAIR ®, the country’s leading natural hair loss solution, supports the nation in highlighting the importance of healthy and balanced nutrition amidst the ongoing health crisis.
