If there is a YouTube or Facebook video series that I would like to watch, it would be Buzzfeed's Worth It.  It is so much fun watching Steven, Andrew, and Adam go to different restaurants trying out super expensive dishes then comparing it with a cheaper alternative.  My fellow content creators Glenn Abucay and Ramzy Magbitang are also big fans of the show.  One day, we decided to make our own version of Worth It and we call it Sulit Ba?  In this first episode, we checked out 3 different places that offer ice cream and we each picked which one is the most "sulit" or worth it among the three.

A couple of weeks ago, I was one of the foodies invited by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines to be part of the Sustainable Dining Forum.  The aim of the forum was to raise awareness on mindful production and consumption of food.  I realized that as a consumer and a blogger, I can do my part in helping the program achieve its goals.  I am now writing a series of blog posts promoting #TheSustainableDiner program because I believe that it is a worthy cause to support.  For the first post of the series, I will give a few reasons why I will not do the Spicy Noodle Challenge and how it relates to the WWF-Philippines Sustainable Dining Program.


The Christmas season is around the corner.  It means that the season of gift-giving is just a few weeks away.  Wines are pretty popular gifts to clients, bosses, and close friends.  It is always a good idea to give out wines because wines have a long shelf life and it is an amazing drink for the holidays.  So, here are my wine suggestions for this Christmas.

The Pyramid Cebu has been a big hit among Cebuanos.  It is one of the best-looking restaurants probably in the entire country. Add to that is that the restaurant is actually serving affordable food that is perfect for locals and tourists.  Recently, they launched their "Late Night Chill at The Pyramid" promo and Kalami Cebu would definitely recommend it.

The Pyramid was positioning themselves as a go-to place to wine and dine.  Well, the place is really popular among millennials and this age group still love beer over other kinds of alcoholic beverages. The proactive management of the restaurant launched Late Night Chill at The Pyramid where people can buy a bucket of beer for only 199 pesos starting 11 PM daily.

3 Good Reasons to Have a Late Night Chill at The Pyramid Cebu


Price

At 199 pesos a set, they are basically selling a bottle of beer for roughly 40 pesos which is a bargain considering that you are having a drinking session at one of the trendiest places in town.  It is a perfect place to chill with the barkada.

Food

Along with the beer, the restaurant serves some of our favorite pulutan or beer mates at reasonable prices.  They have crispy pata, sisig, chicken wings and steak.  It is not hard to find something good to eat to pair with your ice cold bottle of San Mig Light or Red Horse.

Place

The IT Park is just one of the safest places to have a "party" late at night.  It has many parking spaces and the security is really good.  It is also not hard to find a cab should you end up going home at the break of dawn or early in the morning. 

So, if you are planning to have a beer-drinking session soon then consider The Pyramid Cebu with its Late Night Chill at The Pyramid promo.  Check the video above on how fun it is to drink at The Pyramid Cebu.

Drink moderately.  Do not drive drunk. 

Pork Chop!  In the past couple of months, I have seen many restaurants in Cebu that offer their own version of pork chops.  One great example is "Fat Bastard" over at The Weekend.  I recently visited the newly-opened Soho Park by Chef Robert Leonhardt and got to try his Pork Chop with Israeli Couscous, and Mediterranean Vegetables and black olives.  It was pretty good and I am very excited to try the other dishes at this restaurant.

Soho Park's Pork Chop with Israeli Couscous, and Mediterranean Vegetables and black olives

The dish has basically 2 elements, the Pork Chop, and the siding.  The chop is from local pork and it weighs 300 grams a serving. The siding comes with lots of delicious veggies and sauces. An order costs 550 pesos and it will surely satisfy any hungry man.

The pork chop is first vacuum-packed with some spices and aromatics then goes to a hot water bath for a couple of minutes.  It then goes on the flat grill for finishing.  It is crispy and perfectly cooked.  It is served with some gravy.

The siding has Mediterranean vegetables like eggplant and tomato. There is also grilled onions that have different sauces on it.  It looks so pretty that it did not want to eat it at first.

Soho Park actually serves wines and this one is perfect with the Fat Bastard Pinot Noir.  I really enjoyed eating it and maybe the next time I will order this, I would definitely get some rice.  The pork chop and the gravy are so yummy that it will just make you eat a lot of rice and probably make you even wish that they have an unli-rice promo.  The Meditteranean veggies were bursting with flavors and the Isreali couscous gave the dish another texture.  It is a well-thought-of dish and I am pretty confident that a lot of pork lovers out there would enjoy this as much as I did.  Well done, Chef!

I was seated near where the food comes out and I saw a lot of mouthwatering things that the Soho Park team made.  My list of the thing I want to taste on my next visit just got longer the longer I stayed there.  One good example is that picture above of steak, egg, and potatoes.  I am planning to have breakfast there sometime. Would you like to come with me?
