I first saw last Monday, April 14 the show Tablescapes… Life on a Plate Season 2 at Studio 23 airing on Mondays at 11:00PM. It is the first travel cooking show in the Philippines. It is hosted by Angel Aquino and Filipino-Chinese Chef Bruce Lim who goes around the different places in the Philippines and indulge themselves in gastronomic delights of the featured islands and destinations. It is indeed a one of a kind culinary and travel adventure. Chef Bruce is a graduate of Grand Diplome in Cuisine and Pastry from Le Cordon Bleu in London and has worked in the MGM hotel in Las Vegas.
Hubby treated me for my birthday last Sunday at Tata Benito’s a whole LATTE love coffee shop at their new and second branch at J.P. Laurel (Bajada), Davao City. We were really going out to try out Boyd’s as suggested by one of the readers and visitors in this blog but they were closed. Since I was craving for creamy carbonara and I missed it so instead of trying out Coco’s Grill, we opted for Tata Benito’s. This branch is bigger than the one in World Palace. Here are some photos hubby took while we were there.
Gloria Jean’s Coffees is now in Davao City, Philippines and it had its soft opening yesterday afternoon at Pagcor-Davao (formerly Casino Filipino) inside the Grand Regal Hotel, Lanang, Davao City. This is the first ever branch in Davao City while they already have around 40 branches in Manila, other parts of Luzon and the Visayas.
This morning, I am so happy as hubby brought me these from Gloria Jean’s Coffees:
