Tempting Signature Chocolates at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila

Marco Polo’s signature chocolate treats will surely satisfy your sweet cravings. These scrumptious delights from the Chocolate Tinsel Town are simply irresistible!

Try Marco Polo’s Silk Road Iced Coffee. Created from overnight-infused coffee flavored with cinnamon syrup and milk, this enticing sweet treat consists of a blended iced frappuccino poured into a swirled, chocolate-glazed glass, symbolyzing the roads well-travelled of the Silk Road. Topped with marshmallow, burnt gold-peaked meringues are flambé-finished by blow torch, emanating the sun-glinting mountains along the legendary route. The infused frappuccino combined with the crunchy cinnamon s’mores brings perfection to every sip.

The hotel’s signature cake, the Chocolate Haven, is also a dessert you’ll love on the first bite! It has three textures of succulent dark chocolate flavors that melt in your mouth: Dark Chocolate Sponge, Dark Chocolate Mousse and Dark Chocolate Glaze. Enjoy a slice or whole of a special layer of crème brulee that complements the bitter taste of chocolate.

Bag of Beans, Tagaytay

Another Instagram-worthy place that we’ve recently visited is Bag of Beans in Tagaytay.

It’s our first time in this restaurant, and I must admit, I’m smitten!

The place is spacious, warmly lit and cozy.

By the time we arrived at Bag of Beans, all three of us were already famished, so we greatly appreciated the complimentary bread and butter was we wait for our orders.

Complimentary bread and butter

The freshly baked bread was soft and warm, so perfect with that lightly seasoned butter. It was so good that we actually asked for extra bread. Lol!

Chicken Strips, Php310

Our 11-year-old son personally picked Chicken Strips from the menu for his dinner. I’m not sure if the dip that went with his chicken strips was tartar sauce or aioli, but Justin wouldn’t have any of it. He asked for ketchup instead for both his soft chicken fillet and crispy French fries. He’s okay with his order, though his buttered veggies remained untouched.

Tuna Belly, Php370

My Tuna Belly was grilled just right, still succulent with that rich smoky flavor. I would have wanted it drizzled with some lemony and garlicky sauce, though, instead of the mayo-based dip that it was served with.

Baby Back Ribs, Php475

Hubby’s Baby Back Ribs might not be the best he’s had but it was tender enough and tasted good enough for him, so all was well.

Blueberry Cheesecake, Php160 per slice

Smooth and creamy with generous blueberry toppings, this This Blueberry Cheesecake was equally enjoyed by father and son.

We want to go back here really soon!

Pedro ‘n Coi, Robinsons Galleria

If you want to hang out in a place where the atmosphere is festive and vibrant, then you should drop by Pedro ‘n Coi. Owned by husband-and-wife tandem Lloyd Peter Lee (Pedro) and 2011 Ms. Universe 3rd runner-up Shamcey Supsup (Coi), Pedro ‘n Coi (a.k.a. Pinoy Pop Chibog) offers Pinoy dishes with a twist.

Everything about this place is Pinoy, from the sari-sari store set-up to the jeepney and the banderitas reminiscent of fiesta in the barrio.

Everyone’s all smiles, and the staff will even perform a dance number for the diners.

The menu is even more exciting with unique names given to their dishes and drinks, like Sizzling Bulalowlowlow, Joey de Lechon, Anak ng Tokwa and Luis Mansanas, to name a few. We ended up ordering their Pata Kang Kare-Kare Ka and Inasal Raymundo.

Pata Kang Kare-Kare Ka, Php795

Pata Kang Kare-Kare Ka uses pork knuckles that were baked first before getting deep-fried. It is served with vegetables, peanut sauce and homemade bagoong (shrimp paste). Ordering this is like getting the best of two classic Pinoy favorites crispy pata and kare-kare, which hubby and I both love. The pork skin is crispy while the meat is soft. The creamy peanut sauce and the slightly sweet bagoong delightfully complemented the crispy-outside-but-soft-inside pork knuckles.

Inasal Raymundo, Php250

This Inasal Raymundo consists of savory chicken fillet that’s baked then grilled and served with pickled cucumber and radish. My son liked this a lot. I enjoyed it, too. It’s tender, juicy and flavorful.

Cucumber Lemonade (Pitcher), Php150

Well, I must say that cucumber and lemonade go well together. This Cucumber Lemonade drink is light and cool and refreshing.

Pedro ‘n Coi is an Instagram-worthy place that will satisfy your Filipino food cravings. You’ll leave the place feeling satisfied and light-hearted.
