La Lola Churreria

In Spanish cooking, a churro is a cake-like, pastry made of dough and fried in oil (100% olive oil in some traditional recipes). Once cooked, churros should be crispy golden brown on the outside and soft on the inside. In Spain, it is eaten plain or rolled in cinnamon sugar. It can either be thin or long and thick. This pastry delight is popular in Spain, Portugal, France, South Americas, Iberian America and other Spanish-colonial regions like the Philippines and many more. Nowadays, there are a lot of versions and varieties on how it’s cooked and eaten.

Currently, they have 8 branches all over NCR and I was able to try their specials at the ground level of The Block in SM North Edsa branch. Read More »

Bag of Beans, Tagaytay Ph

During our day trip to Tagaytay, we had some refreshments and light snacks at Bag of Beans. It is about a few minutes away from The Ranch. This place has coffee, various entree, salads, pasta, everyday breakfast menu and of course, desserts.

Bag of Beans has that chillax vibe with a touch of class to it. The entrance of their wooden cabin-like shop will greet you with marvelous pasalubong treats and in-house specialties.
