Roxas St. has become a food hub in Davao City with various street foods to choose from during the night street market. Even long before the street foods it is home to pioneering eat all you can restos in the city. Now a new cafe, Koffiepauze, has opened it's doors in Roxas Street and offering us Dabawenyos with their own unique brand. This branch is actually their second one as they previously had a branch in Maa but they wanted to be more accessible to customers and offer a more bigger space thus they relaunched their establishment in Roxas.

Give Flavorfully with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

The year 2015 is about to end and people are starting to plan for 2016. Most people like me find it essential to use planners or journal to plan and document the year ahead.  It is timely that The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf launched their GIving Journal. I was fortunate to attend their Davao launching last November 7 at their SM Lanang Premier branch. 

We had a wonderful time over brunch of muffin, sandwich, pasta and unlimited coffee while CBTL introduced their Giving Journal 2016 and 2015 Holiday menu. We also had a basic watercolor lettering workshop  (read about it here).

Street Food of the World at Vikings Luxury Buffet

Every time that we have an opportunity to travel we would also explore the dishes that the place has to offer. In this way we can have a complete experience of the place by getting a taste (literally!) of their culture. Food is an important part of any culture thus you would learn a lot about the people through their food like how they prefer it, salty or sweet, the ingredients that they use and how they present it. Street food of any place would be the easiest way to experience food as it is readily available and accessible in any busy corner.

Viking's Luxury Buffet recognizes the value of street foods and the story each food has to tell that is why starting this August they would be offering a variety of these food from around the globe.

Let's start with Suppli from Italy. This tasty Italian snack and may look complicated but is quite easy to prepare as it consist of ball of rice, tomato sauce, raw egg and filled with chicken giblets, mince meat and cheese. Then it is coated with bread crumbs and deep fried.

Kusina Maria Baked Goodies

One of the things that my husband and I wanted to have in our own home is not a 92 inch LED TV but simply a cookie jar filled with yummy cookies. We  always want to have cookies in hand for our family esp. our son to snack on in the afternoon or even at midnight. Usually we just buy ready made cookies from the grocery but if budget allows we order freshly baked cookies from friends and acquaintances. 

One of our favorites are Browkies(P200/6pcs, P400/dozen)  from Kusina Maria. Browkies is a unique combination of brownie and cookie thus the name.It surely taste like a brownie and a cookie! Two favorites in one bite.

Another favorite is the Oreo Stuffed Cookies(P180/6 pcs, P350/dozen). Who doesn't love Oreo right? Well we do that's why we love is cookie very much.  We also love her Toblerone stuffed ones.
And lastly we love the classic Soft Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnut(P100/6 pcs, P200/dozen).

What we love about Kusina Maria products is that it is baked just right and taste really good, it is not too sweet that you have an excuse to eat more ;-)

These goodies and more will be available at the Great Kadayawan Bazaar and Trade Fair 2014. Look for the Coooleys Booth at the Food Area of the .The bazaar will run from Aug 14 - 17, 2014 at the Davao Convention and Trade Center. Contact 0906-2250428 to pre-order or reserve.
