Food Quest : The Sandwich Guy

The Sandwich Guy, McKinley Hill, Taguig 
If you're traveling to the Philippines or someone who's just overwhelmed with all the dishes offered that are always paired with rice, you may want to check out the kiosks of The Sandwich Guy. 

Started in 2008, The Sandwich Guy (TSG) is a quick-service restaurant that offers healthy and easily-prepared sandwiches using whole wheat bread, pastas and baked potatoes.With locations positioned in malls and business districts, its products are aptly priced, with sandwiches ranging from 55-130 Pesos, pastas at 70 Pesos depending on the type while baked potatoes are at 75 Pesos. Not bad at all for everyday consumption. :)

For this particular visit, I ordered Mushy bacon sandwich, mushy potato, chicken pesto and a bottle of Tropicana orange juice. Not that I needed to explain, but I was loading up for a basketball game in the afternoon. Hihi. Although there were numerous seats around this branch, I opted for a take-out as I was in a hurry. 

Here goes my spread.

Mushy Bacon sandwich comes with bacon bits, beef, mushroom with loads of melted cheese. The bacon is steamed, not fried. The loaves of its sandwiches come in the shape of a hexagon. The lines made by the toaster makes it nice to look at. 

Mushy Bacon (95 Pesos)
The Mushy Potato are baby potatoes with mushroom and melted cheese. If you like the taste of Cheez Whiz, you'll definitely roll over with delight on this one. What I love about this dish is that the potatoes are not soggy. 

Mushy Potato (75 Pesos)
TSG is where I go when I am craving for quick serving of pesto. It can be ordered with just the basil leaves and cheese or if you're loading on protein order it with grilled chicken or tuna & crabstick. 

Chicken Pesto (95 Pesos)
As someone who is loyal to rice meals, I've always looked at sandwiches as something that gets me by until the next big meal but TSG made me change my mind.

Part 2 : Bataan Adventures | Where to Eat in Bataan (Updated 2017)

Being an avid hiker and foodie, I've grown very fond of visiting  Bataan.  This province offers several hiking trails (check my post here) passing verdant forests and nicely decorated cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a proper cup of coffee and affordable comfort food. It is also highly accessible from Manila via land travel, making it a good option for a short but rewarding out of town adventure. 

Here's a list of restaurants in Bataan where you can enjoy satisfying meals. 

The restaurant's name which means little angels (male) was inspired by the owner's 3 young boys, Miguel (after St. Michael), Rafael and Gabriel.This 2 year old family owned restaurant has a homey ambiance and serves any type of food that the family enjoys.

Dishes are flavorful and priced affordably -100 Pesos above for the main dishes and 20 Pesos above for the desserts.Specialty includes, pork binagoongan and creamy tofu (my fave!). The restroom which has a mini garden is als…

Hiking in La Trinidad : Mt. Yangbew

To kickoff 2017, I  returned to the Cordillera region with one of my closest friends, Jules. We wanted to take it easy  so we decided to try a couple of short but very scenic trails in Benguet I found online (References posted below). 

Barangay Tawang in La Trinidad,the capital of the province of Benguet  is less than an hour from Baguio city and features several accessible, scenic mountain trails - Mt. Yangbew (also known as Mt. Jambo), Tayawan view deck and Mt. Kalugong. These are all beginner-friendly or as the younger Pinoy millenials would say, pabebe-friendly. :P
Since we were taking a super early bus ride,  (1:30 AM early! :P), we made sure  we got nice, comfy seats. Fortunately, with 3 days prior to the trip, we were able to book online via iWantSeats.

In five hours, we arrived in the City of Pines and walked towards Session Road to hunt for a hotel. Fortunately, a vacant room was immediately available at Benguet Prime Hotel so we were able to leave our bags.  We took our sweet t…

Footwear should enhance your experience outdoors and protect you from injury. There are shoes designed specifically for hiking but I encourage you to research the mountain  first before purchasing hiking shoes. Will there be sections where you need to cross rivers? How long will you be hiking?If the mountain has a clear and established trail that normally won't take more than 4 hours to complete, you can very w…
