Visit Seoul, Busan and more visa-free Soon!

Posted On Tuesday, December 24, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments

Yes! Finally! You and I can soon visit South Korea VISA-FREE 

Oh, please please tell me this is not a dream! The K-pop fan in me would like to scream I can't help but get excited, K-Wave fans! This is the news we’ve all been waiting for. This 2020, Philippine passport holders will be given VISA-FREE access to cities like Seoul, Busan, and Nami Island – making you one step closer to checking South Korea off your bucket list! However, there’s a catch – so keep on reading!

Last December 12, the Ministry of Strategy and Finance and the Ministry of Justice announced that as part of South Korea’s “Plan for Promoting Foreign Tours,” Philippine passport holders will be permitted to enter major South Korea cities without holding a visa!

However, it is important to note the limitations of this program. Tourists are only permitted visa-free entry in inland areas – Seoul, Incheon, and Busan – for up to five days; and that their final destination be Jeju Island.

This new Visa-Free program also extends to Vietnam and Indonesian passport holders.

For more information, you may check out the official Visa-Free Program announcement of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea here.

Visit South Korea visa-free through Jeju Island!

In the event that you can no longer wait until this visa-free program becomes official, you can still enter South Korea visa-free by visiting Jeju Island! Though you cannot travel to any other cities outside of Jeju Island, we can guarantee you an exciting adventure through this coastal wonder!

DUTERTE: Must Certify Urgent Law Vs. VAPE/ Vaping

Posted On Friday, November 22, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments

Our beloved president Rodrigo Duterte with his power as president of the Republic of the Philippines must use the principle of Parens patriae and certify urgent the law vs. Vaping and vape/e-juice.



With all due respect to you Tatay Digong. 🙏 You're very intelligent and you're my lodi and hope of the Filipino people.  You can order the law making body of the Philippines - - which is our congress to immediately pass a law vs. Vape/ Vaping/ E-Juice because of its harmful effects to the health of anyone who uses and smells it. 

By certifying its urgency the law vs. Vape and vaping will have its first and last reading. Thus, shortening the time for the law to be passed. Avoiding the long and tedious process of the second and third reading. To our congressmen: Please don't prolong the process. Save the Filipino children ASAP. Salamat po. 🙏 


In the US, vape /E-Juice was found to be extremely hazardous. Now, imagine what they found in their study, a teenager with a lungs of a 70-year old after only six months of vaping.  E-Juice is much worst according to a doctor of medicine. Grade school pupils and high school students who thought that E-Juice is better will have the biggest disappointment of their lives. Because the doctors found out that one E-Juice is equivalent to ten packs of cigarettes. 

To those who disagree with the President's speech against vape/vaping: As a parent would you wait for the worst to happen to the Filipino children before you take actions? For what? For money? How about the grade schoolers who think that e-juice is cool? Please think about your own kid/kids. 

I am sad when people make fun of the president. I don't condone to some of his actions and speeches but he is our PRESIDENT. The father of this country and he loves the Philippines and the Filipino people. Like most Filipinos, I am for President Duterte and Vice President Leni Gerona Robredo. That is the will of the majority of Filipinos. Obvious naman sa result ng nakaraan election. Mas okay nga na hindi sila magka partido para may check in balance sa ginagawa ng bawat isa. I wonder why is there so much hate? The President should protect the children and the Filipino people.  Mr. President please use the principle behind parens patriae to certify urgent the law vs. Vaping/e-Juice. 

Parens patriae is a Latin for 'parent of his or her country.' In the juvenile justice legal system, parens patriae is a doctrine that allows the state to step in and serve as a guardian for children, the mentally ill, the incompetent, the elderly, or disabled persons who are unable to care for themselves. 

Since the President is a lawyer I know that he is aware of this principle. Give him a break.

HEARTY BREAD: Healthy lifestyle Made Affordable

Posted On Sunday, November 10, 2019 by Food Blogger 0 comments

HEARTY BREAD: Healthy Lifestyle At A Low Price

Anyone who had tried dieting before would agree with me that it is not as easy as it may sounds. Plus, a healthy diet requires not only a solid determination but a lot of moolah too! Why? Because it is very expensive! There are so many diet options in the market today but they come with a hefty price tag! You may classify me into someone who had been dieting all my life. Eversince I can remember I am constantly on a diet. Then, one day I give up and let my unhealthy lifestyle overcome my will to be healthy. 



I've tried so many diet options before , but I ended up as a total failure. I know, I am a ticking time bomb. I am aware that I should shape up sooner and not later or I'll end up six feet under the ground. Hard as it may seems, it is for my best interest.  

Come on, admit it. Following a strict diet are generally not effective. Plus it is unhealthy like Keto diet. Some healthy stuff doesn't taste good. Some do taste good but they're very unhealthy. And some diet stuff makes me crave for more food. Being deprived makes me want more. 

A healthy lifestyle will not only extend your life span, but also makes you feel and look good. Plus you don't have to buy plus sizes clothes anymore. Being healthy will also makes you more confident.  Obese individuals has greater chances of suffering from diabetes, cancer, renal failures and other diseases imaginable. 

Problem is, my main problem is not only psychological but also budget. Not to mention that going into a strict diet—Low Carbohydrate/Sugar-Free diet makes me crave for more rice. You see. I am a typical Filipino who loves rice. And rice is carbohydrates. No rice diet makes me weak. 

Diabetic Cases

The Philippines is considered one of the diabetes "hot spots" in the Western Pacific region. It is estimated that 1 out of 5 Filipinos are diabetic. This statistic is very alarming and calls for attention of the general public. Several cause-oriented group has already started campaigns to spread awareness in the hope to help hinder the growth

It was noted that unhealthy lifestyle habits of Filipinos is the main cause of diabetes. This was also tackled by World Health Organization and they also included sedentary lifestyles as major lifestyle risk factors, stating that 1 in 3 overweight and 1 in 10 is obese.

Obesity

Obesity cases is another red flag in the country. Those who consume excess sugar and carbohydrate lead to accumulating that excess weight overtime. Per record, Philippines has estimated a staggering 18 million citizens who are either Obese or Overweight.

Cancer Cells feed on Sugar

To clarify, consuming sugar does not cause cancer. Studies have been conducted which proves that sugar essentially feeds tumors and encourages cancer growth. Hence starving these cells from sugar may help cancer patients.

These health conditions would require a special diet, and we know how expensive it can be. Because it can be really costly, a group of young entrepreneurs, Evan Dykimching and Vicson Ngo, have decided to develop bread alternatives, Hearty Bread, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free.


The company started out as suppliers for some of the major hospitals in the Metro. They cater to doctors and in-house patient with conditions mentioned above.

"When one of our family member got confined in the hospital, we were surprised that the price of our bread were quite high due to several administrative fees," Evan recounts.

With the company's desire to promote affordable and quality healthy, they created the brand "Hearty Bread" to make healthy breads readily available and affordable to the general public.

To give you an idea, if you are not familiar with the price of Gluten-Free/Sugar-Free in the market, other producers are selling these breads ranging from Php500 to Php600 per loaf. Expensive? You bet! 

Hearty Bread invested in research and development for two (2) years in order to come up with bread that are double in size and begun selling at half the price – all Gluten-Free/Sugar-Free.



A lot of other products are in the pipeline and are being developed which gives those who are into these type of diet something to look forward to.

Evan also shares the secret to making their bread available at a very low price – 

"We can really lower the cost of our products since we produce them commercially in volume quantities. We also own the lot where our facilities operate so we don't pay rent. We make our breads affordable not to kill the market price, but to make these healthy breads more affordable and help those who are burdened to begin with."


I received a basket of Hearty Bread the other week and O boy, they're all delicious. To think that all of these breads are gluten free!!! 



Our house boy asked me why am I eating steel wool. Lol. It is because he saw me eating Hearty Bread's Charcoal Almond Cheesy Loaf. He's so funny. l decided to let him taste it. Imagine my surprise when he wanted some more, lol! Nasarapan! Ha ha ha! It is totally behind me how on earth does a gluten-Free/Sugar-Free with no preservatives will taste this good!


I also love the fact that all of their breads are sliced to perfection. No more sweat in slicing. Hearty bread had thoroughly covered every rough edges! And that is so cool. 😎


My brother also love hearty breads saba 🍌 banana 🍞 loaf. He finished the banana loaf in one seating ha ha ha! 😅 

Charcoal Cheesy Almond Loaf
Moi favorite 😍

Posted On Saturday, November 09, 2019 by Food Blogger 0 comments

One could feel Manila Hotel's Christmas vibe upon entering its grandiose doors. 



Everyone is free to come and visit Manila Hotel. But of course you have to go through security checks everytime you visit. 



You could have your photos taken at every nook and corners because Manila Hotel is very Instagrammable❤️




Since October we're here almost everyday because my brother goes to Manila Hotel's health club. 



We chance upon Manila Hotel's president, former Senator Joey Lina tonight together with Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. 



I wanted a selfie with the former president but I am too shy to ask her for a photo plus her bodyguard looks like a tiger, lol. Someday perhaps. Her son Datu Arroyo used to be the congressman in my Mom's hometown. Plus, she's the guest speaker during my college graduation. GMA is very industrious a very loving mom and wife, a very good teacher and economist. 



Big Santa Bear at Manila Hotel's lobby.

Ramon Magsaysay Center:Bloggers, Vloggers & Entrepreneurs Inspire Life

Posted On Wednesday, October 30, 2019 by Food Blogger 0 comments

"Our primary purpose in life is to help and inspire others" 



Bloggers, Vloggers & Entrepreneurs Inspire Life in a small gathering held at Donburimix Ramon Magsaysay Basement, Ramon Magsaysay Center Roxas Boulevard corner Quintos Street Malate, Manila

Many of us don't have an inkling what is really our primary purpose in life up until this very moment. Lucky are those people like ate Juliet Zapanta Cruz and the entrepreneurs who presented their businesses at the Vloggers explore Manila event. Why?  Primarily because they are so passionate about helping others through their respective businesses. 

Others say that one should never do business with friends. Because the friends you treasure might turn into an enemy because of some business issues that might hurt the friendship along the way. 

Is it alright to do business with friends? Know the answer by watching the video below:


During the event these businessmen unselfishly shared their ups and downs. Including their own experiences when they were starting out both here in the Philippines and abroad. They tirelessly answered all the questions thrown their way. 

I also learned that it was also the very first time that the vloggers had the opportunity to meet each other personally. Happy to have met some of you guys and gals. I am too old and too shy to mingle and meet everyone but I treasure those who took the time to get to know me when I was sitting by my lonesome in the table near the food and drinks section ha ha ha! #AlamNaThis joke. I only ate California Maki (my favorite) and one milk tea 'coz I am on a diet. I learned a lot from you guys! Grabe! Saludo ako sa galing at pagtutulungan ninyo at sa pagbibigay ninyong vlogging tips sa akin. Sa uulitin. Thank you guys! I really appreciate your help and inputs sa tulad ko na walang alam at masasabing newbie sa editing at vlogging. 

MG Pineda of Bacolod is very nice and provided entertainment to the delight of everyone. She is a resident in Australia and a business owner/singer rolled into one. Thank you, Mg! We had so much fun listening to your wonderful voice.

Ate Juliet Zapanta Cruz wears so many hats. She is a very good emcee, wife, mother, entrepreneur, blogger now also a Vlogger and a talent manager. She never ceases to amaze me!  ❤️ Thank you so much for the opportunity to be inspired. 

💕 Thank you also to the following sponsors:

RUSSIA: Free E-Visa For Filipino Passport Holders

Posted On Tuesday, October 29, 2019 by Food Blogger 0 comments

amus getty image

We, Filipinos can now visit Saint Petersburg and the Leningrad region with a free e-visa for a stay of up to eight (8) days.

Russia recently announced that it will offer the e-visa privilege for Filipinos to enter Saint Petersburg and the Leningrad region starting October 1, 2019.

The e-visa is free and is a single-entry visa, which will be valid for 30 days from the date it is issued. Filipinos with an e-visa are allowed to stay in the Russian Federation for up to 8 days, starting from the day of entry and within the visa's validity period.

The visa's validity and number of days allowed in the country cannot be extended, the Russian government said. The allowed period of 8 days, it added, will start at midnight of the day of entry through passport control and not the actual time of passage.

Reminder for travelers: Russia also reminded travelers that they should leave the country "only through checkpoints of the constituent entity of the Russian Federation which they entered."

Foreigners who enter Russia with e-visas are also required to have medical insurance valid in Russia for the entire period of their stay.

How to apply: 


Filipinos interested in applying for the e-visa must fill out an application on this website no later than 4 days before their expected arrival date.

E-visa issuance notifications will be posted here no later than 4 days after applications are submitted. Invitations, hotel confirmations, and other travel documents confirming the purpose of travel are not required for the application, according to the Russian government.

E-visas are only valid for the following travel purposes:



  • Ordinary business visa
  • Ordinary tourist visa
  • Ordinary humanitarian visa (purposes of journey are sports, cultural, scientific, and technological ties)
If the purpose of travel falls outside these categories, individuals are expected to apply for a traditional visa at a diplomatic mission or consular office of the Russian Federation.

Whenever I hear the word "Russia" I can't help but remember the 007 movie "From Russia with love" Well, all I can say now is that this free e-visa is a gift from Russia with Love.(no Pun intended)

Enjoy!

Posted On Saturday, July 27, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 2 comments

How to commute to Ayala Mall Marikina

Coming from the South or North of Manila the easiest way is either via MRT or LRT to Cubao. 

In front of Gateway Cubao there is a UV express terminal.  One is going to Parang and the other one is SSS Marikina. 

Select SSS Marikina. Fare is Php30 (Thirty Pesos) tell the driver that you'll get down in Meralco. 



When you alight, jump in on one of the yellow trikes in the area and tell the trike driver that you're going to #AyalaMallMarikina fare is Php20

Usually the trike are only up to the entrance of Mercury DrugStore. 

Happy commuting!

The day that I watch "Lovers in Paris" is the day that I wish to go and visit the city of love, Paris also known as the City of Lights. Paris is at the heart of romance, and the Eiffel Tower is at the heart of Paris.

The Parisian Macao, views of the city and hotel await each visitor to the Observation Decks on levels 7 and 37.

My cousin and her family went recently to Macao and had a wonderful stay at Parisian Macao.  

I wish to visit Macao soon.  My brother and I spent one Christmas there a long time ago and had not come back since because of several reasons. But seeing my cousin's recent vacation in Macao had enticed me to visit Macao soon.

BANANA BOAT SIMPLY PROTECT – Protection for the Skin and the Environment

Posted On Sunday, June 02, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments

BANANA BOAT SIMPLY PROTECT – Protection for the Skin and the Environment!

We Filipinos love asia novela. I personally love "Running man" and "Goblin". One thing that attracts me to these K-programs are their glass like-skin and youthful look.  Did you know that their secret to their youthful glow is proper sunscreen! UV Radiation is a constant danger indoors as well as outside. While it's understood that taking sun safety precautions is important outside, few people realize they can sustain sun damage indoors, too

In fact, if you're working near a window, chances are you could be exposed to UV rays. The sun emits two types of UV rays that can reach us: UVB rays, which cause sunburns, and UVA rays, which cause premature aging
So we must make it a habit to always use sunblock even inside our homes. 

We should also make it a point to use products that does not only protect but also preserve the environment as much as possible. As you all know the market is flooded with skin care that is detrimental to the environment. 

GOOD NEWS!  Now you can protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun and protect the environment as well.  Impossible?  Not anymore – thanks to Banana Boat Simply Protect.

BANANA BOAT, the brand synonymous to skin protection just elevated the playing field to a new level with this latest sunscreen lotion – the Banana Boat Simply Protect. 


BANANA BOAT SIMPLY PROTECT provides SPF50+ broad spectrum of UVA/UVB protection.  It is made with 25% fewer ingredients making the phrase “Less is More“ literally appropriate for the product.  It is very light on the skin because it is formulated with no additional fragrances and oils and stays on skin in 7 conditions – sun, heat, wind, pool water, ocean water, sweat and sand.

Banana Boat Simply Protect also replaced Oxybenzone and Parabens – ingredients that are said to create cellular damage in coral reefs with natural ingredients that are safe and effective in filtering out the sun’s harmful rays but are environmental friendly.

“ Banana Boat Simply Protect is a product that gives maximum sun screen protection with very minimal ingredients, making it safe for everyone in the family. It is also  micro-plastic free and does not contain Oxybenzone and Parabens making it safe for the environment as well “ said Maricel Quevedo, Banana Boat Brand Manager.

In the Philippines, Banana Boat Simply Protect comes in three (3) variants - the Simply Protect Sports, designed for those who enjoy active outdoor lifestyle. Simply Protect Kids for kids 4 years old and above, Simply Protect Baby for babies 6 months to 3 years old.  Both variants are sting-free and tear-free product made mild and gentle enough even for the most delicate and sensitive skin.

Simply Protect Sports and Simply Protect Kids are available in both Aerosol Spray and Lotion forms while Simply Protect Baby is available in the same lightweight lotion form.

Banana Boat Simply Protect is a product that it is highly recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation when it comes to protection against harmful rays of the sun.

Banana Boat Simply Protect is a global brand manufactured by Edgewell Personal Care and being imported, marketed and distributed in the Philippines by Getz Healthcare.

THAILAND

THAILAND


Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing 

That is what these monkey statues in Thailand represents. 

I would never forget that feeling. Because up until now, that is what most Filipinos are doing. We pretend that we hear nothing, see nothing and we end up not saying anything at all.

SHEPHERD'S GALLERY



The heat is unbearable nowadays.  Our electric fans at home is always on because of the heat of summer.  

Solution? Go visit Baguio City where the weather is much cooler.

No wonder, people from Baguio is more kind.  Oh, this is my own observation so don't feel offended. Maybe, because they're more tolerant because of the weather condition there, 

One place we've visited the last time we were in Baguio is the Shepherd's Gallery inside the Good Shepherd compound. In the picture, I was standing at the viewing deck, where the view is breathtaking.  The view there made me appreciate God's beautiful creation. It is nature at its finest.

You could also see different work of arts at Shepherds Gallery. 

Admission is FREE.

ASIN, BENGUET: Bencab Museum

ASIN, BENGUET: Bencab Museum


One of the reasons why I love to travel is the art and culture of the places I visit.  I am a frustrated artist. I love to draw people and things when I was a small child. But my parents told me not to pursue my love for drawing because artists are generally poor. 

Sigh, to date, I am still poor and I am not even an artist. I should have followed my heart's desire and hone my drawing skills. Because if  am an artist and poor at least I got to do what I wanted to do in life.

Nowadays, Vloggers or video bloggers are the in thing to do. I still couldn't imagine myself talking to my camera every time I travel. Thus, the pose. What if I try to be a vlogger? Would you watch my youtube channel?

DO-IT-YOURSELF BORACAY

Posted On Sunday, April 14, 2019 by Unknown 0 comments

DO-IT-YOURSELF BORACAY


Yes, dear! It is doable. No need for you to pay more when you go on a trip to Boracay. This is what we always do whenever we visit the paradise island of Boracay.

Aircon Room accommodation for 3 days and 2 nights is only around Php800 per night per room located in Station 1. This very safe and clean inn is stone's throw away from Willy's Rock and just across Holy Rosary Church.

Two persons in one room 800 divided by two = Php 400 per night x 2 nights (3 days and 2 nights) Php 800.00

Andoks, Mang Inasal, etc., offer meals between 45 pesos to 102 per person. That means you can save a lot if you bring or cook your own food.

It is doable. Travel agencies always assure you that you got the best deals but the truth is, they got a lot of profit from your travel money/ fund. :-)

Airfare: Seat sale- Php 2,171.84 divided by 2= Php1,085.92 + 800= Php1,885.92 per person. (Fare is based on a mock booking for this year 2013 with no check in bags.)

NOTE: I am not connected with any hotel or sponsor.  This is based on my personal experience. This is the way you do it to save money.

EBIKE: Budget Travel For Only Php10

Posted On Friday, April 12, 2019 by GREEN WALKER PILIPINAS 0 comments


Tricycles used to be the poor man's preferred mode of transportation.

Here comes ebikes or electric bicycle. The revolutionary bicycle change the now expensive trike fares in the country today.  

My fearless forecast : Soon, every Juan and Maria in the country would own one.

Not only because it doesn't need maintenance nor lubricants nor any expensive gasoline it cost only Php10 to charge it to its full capacity of around 80 kilometers. That is to and from Manila to somewhere in Cavite. Just imagine the savings you'll have. Recently, the different manufacturers were outsmarting one another by coming out with more features such as silent and hassle free features coupled with speed.as fast as 100 km/hr.  These recent models easily sits well in the different market across Europe. I hope they'll offer it here locally. I couldn't wait to try 'em all.

PASIG FOOD TRIP: Kuya J Restaurant's Summer Sizzlers



Kuya J Filipino Restaurant has a newly opened branch just across Banco de Oro (BDO) at the ground level of SM Center Pasig which is near Tiendesitas.  Upon the invitation of a friend, my Kuya (brother) and I decided to check out this branch. It is good thing that the invitation came at a perfect time when I was craving for some Filipino food and cool dessert because of the scorching summer heat. 


A cool dessert always served as a sweet ending to hearty meal. This is a twist of the original Buco (Young coconut) Pandan recipe. Kuya J's refreshing twist of the infamous buco pandan dessert is called Creamy Mango Pandan which has an intense mango flavor. An order would only cost you Php80. This well-rounded dessert is good for 2 to 3 persons. Mango-Pandan #goodforhealth #foodporn #flavor #dessert #pastry

Well, that belief changed late last year when my brother and I encountered the delicious combination of coffee and cocoa-infused chocolate dessert at Kuya J Restaurant here in the Metro.

You could not deny the fact that coffee and chocolate are a match made in dessert heaven. In an ode to the classic combo, Kuya J food development team created a unique dessert called Tablea Coffee Flan (Php85). 

This Batangas tablea-flavored flan with coffee caramel is topped with dried coconut meat and pieces of barquillos (crispy egg wafer sticks), which happened to be my childhood favorite snack!  Wonderfully delicious!  I'll definitely come back for more.  It comes across as eating something sinful but I super duper love it!

The traditional cooler Halo-halo (a popular Filipino dessert with mixtures of shaved ice and evaporated milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans, jello and fruits) comes with a unique twist - the Fried Halo-halo (Php135) a la mode

Kuya J's version has ube (purple yam), white beans, young corn, nata de coco (a chewy, translucent, jelly-like foodstuff produced by the fermentation of coconut water)lanka (jackfruit) and butter beans stuffed in pastry wrapper and deep fried to give the halo-halo a warm take. Then it is topped with whipped cream and Vanilla Ice Cream.

A must try!

When it comes to Pinoy food, my barometer is the restaurant's version of Crispy Pata (deep fried pig trotters or knuckes). Crispy pata is one of the all-time favorite Filipino dishes served on special occasions 
in some Filipino households or even everyday in authentic Filipino restaurants.

Kuya J's Crispy Pata is crispy outside and very tender inside. The attendant sliced our crispy order in front of our very eyes. I think that is a cool idea because it gives somewhat a sense of assurance that your order is really one whole crispy pata, not less. When you hear it crack while being cut, you'll feel more confident that it is really freshly cooked. Its mouth-watering Crispy Pata is a must try! Outstanding in every sense of the word.  #PerfectPata #TheBestPataInMetroManilaToDate

There's the bone marrow smiling up at me.

Sick and tired of the usual plain rice served in most restaurants? 

Don't worry! Kuya J has a lot of variations to the usual plain rice. 

I was so happy when they served us the very delectable Humba Binagoongan Fried Rice (P175), topped with bell peppers, red onions,  green mangoes and chopped binagoongang pork. Humba is a Visayan stewed pork dish similar to adobo while bagoong is a fish or shrimp paste condiment 

Bagoong rice is what I always ordered whenever I am in Thai restaurants. I love how the acidity from the strips of green mango cut through the saltiness of the shrimp paste. Filipino cuisine not being too far off from Thai, Kuya J's version is sneaky, the humba touches home base as the pork fat melts in my mouth.

I am a picky eater when it comes to stews and braises. After eating a piece I am sure this is sure to appear on most if not all the tables of diners in Kuya J.


Beef Pochero Tagalog is a Filipino Stew similar to that of “Nilagang Baka“ (Beef Stew). This dish is complimented by the sweetness of saba banana. The unique sour blend and color is brought-in by the yummy tomato sauce. Aside from the tomato sauce and banana, the chorizo de Bilbao and chick peas are also part of the ingredients. Beef Pochero Tagalog brings out the delightful taste of our Spanish influence.

Kuya J's Beef Pochero is 
very enticing dish. I enjoyed eating its pochero because of its yummy taste. It is best eaten warm along with white rice. 

Try Kuya J's version of Beef Pochero Tagalog and let me know what you think.








For appetizers, the Chorizo Dinamitas (stuffed chili pepper with chorizo), Lumpia Presko (fresh lumpia), Tokwa't Baboy (tofu and pork), Baked Scallops were laid out on our table. Whew! And that's just the appetizers.

Dalandan Beer

I also had a sample of their Dalandan Beer. I honestly don't like beer but this was a unique conconction that I don't want to pass up.  The dalandan provided a refreshing, zesty sensation with a hint of sweetness and apparent taste of beer. It's actually a nice match to the Sinuglaw and fried dishes.

Kuya J Restaurant serves delicious traditional Filipino dishes, so you're a complete disgrace to your own culture if you don't try its food offerings. Kuya J, just like my reliable Kuya, adapted regional local cuisine and added a different take on each dish. Cool, eh! 

The food is delicious and presented well at Kuya J's. Every item on the menu are well thought off by its Food Development Team (FDT) and approved by its stockholders. 

The orders are very large and very much worth the price. They also provide huge servings of rice and trust me it's more than enough to fill you up!  Service is always super friendly! All of their employees are quick, polite, and professional. The restaurant is well lighted and has a modern Filipino design plus comfortable seats.  I salute Kuya J restaurant for considering all the important details in the industry.
