Biko de kolores

I found this flashy, colorful delicacy at the Vietnamese section of an Asian store and decided to try their version of their biko. I call it biko de kolores obviously because of its flashing colors. It’s hard to miss them and the colors are screaming “pick me up” from the shelves. There’s nothing extra ordinary about the biko de kolores. It tastes like the regular biko, sticky and...

Fried rice quickie

  Once upon a few minutes ago, I had a pot of cooked brown rice. I know brown rice has many health benefits over white rice and it has more fiber and antioxidants, more vitamins and minerals and it is the healthier option but I am not just used to it. I am not happy . I want steamed white rice. My system is screaming if I’d rather...

Reef coolers at the Hyatt's Splash Bar

     TUCKED away behind the poolside waterfall of Hyatt Regency in Garapan is a nook that not everyone knows about, especially if you don’t venture beyond the swimming pool. The Splash Bar is located in between artistically carved boulders with superb views of the swimming pool and the waterfall. I have been to this nook several times but last Saturday was the first time that I stayed and...

American-Mexican lunch at the World Café

    An impromptu lunch on Saturday led me and a buddy to the World Café at the Fiesta Resort & Spa on Saturday noon. The plan has always been there to try out the theme lunches at the World Café but somehow each time we plan to go it always never materializes. It was just past 12 noon and a friendly wait staff took us to only available...

A feast of grilled delights at Gekka Teppanyaki & Bar

YOU can see the Gekka Teppanyaki Bar right across from the main restaurant near the poolside when you step into the lobby of the Mariana Resort & Spa in Marpi, its polished counter tops and comfortable chairs around the bar enticing one to come and explore the mouthwatering temptations in its menu. The Gekka Bar is dead in the daytime, but at 6 p.m. the lights go on...

JC Cafe: Still the place to be

IF hunger pangs strike and you’re on Tinian, JC Café in San Jose village is your destination. JC Café is the local equivalent of “everybody’s second kitchen” and that’s where I and my companion headed to last Monday when we had an afternoon off. We had been driving around the island for an hour or so and were getting hungrier and thirstier by the minute so we decided...

Finger-licking BBQ goodness at Booya’s

TRYING out the popular Booya’s Local BBQ has always been in the plan since the restaurant opened its doors last April but the chance never came as they only open for lunch and I rarely eat lunch. A week ago I learned that Booya’s is already open for dinner and my chance came on Friday. I had skipped breakfast and lunch and it was already past 5 p.m....

Coffee Care: Your food on the hill

A DRIVE up to Coffee Care on Capital Hill last Saturday took me and a lunch buddy to try the new lunch specials. We headed straight to a table for two right by the glass windows and browsed the menu a waitstaff handed us, only to find out the lunch specials was offered only on the weekdays. I decided to try one dish from the weekend breakfast menu...
