Food Trip : Pacing's House of Barbeque (Navotas)

I rarely venture far from home because of the traffic - unless it’s for a travel or hiking trip, but JZ, an old friend, outdoorsman turned entrepreneur had started a food business in Navotas, roughly 25 KM away from my comfort zone and I wanted to show my support.

Opened in May 2016, Pacing's House of Barbeque features an heirloom recipe from JZ's late grandma, wine-marinated barbeque that she used to serve during family gatherings.

Its interiors are simple, giving it an atmosphere that's pretty chill, a place where you can bring your family and friends for good food without having to bother about what you're going to wear. It's a go to place when you want to skip cooking or if you're craving for something tasty after a tough day.

Aside from the savory chunks of pork barbeque, it also offers a variety of sizzling dishes - pork, seafood (shrimp, fish) and tofu; other Filipino favorites, calamares, SILOG (Sinangag and Itlog) paired with meat like barbeque, tapa (marinated beef). There's also an offering for a growing segment of foodies, vegan chopsuey. 

Keeping up to its mission of serving affordable and delicious food to the regular Pinoy, meals have a starting price of 49 Pesos and the pork barbeque at 20 Pesos/stick.

Though I'm more into seafood and vegetables, I enjoyed the enhanced flavor of the wine-marinated dishes. The pork belly has a rich sauce that went so well with rice. 

And because I love tofu, my favorite would be the sizzling tofu.  Complimenting its rich flavors is San Mig Cola which is something I rarely see around. It's worth a try! 

For desserts, they have gourmet style ice cream from Arce Dairy, a classic!

Leaving a stable corporate job takes guts and a lot of hard work, things I've always find admirable among my freelancer/entrepreneur friends. Congrats to you JZ and Carla! :)

Excuse the paper bag, brought him pasalubong from Max's and tarts from Kumori. Hehe!

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…

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. 

ANGELITOS (Orani)
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…

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…
