Smashed Burger

Pinoy Shawarma Rice

Filipinos love Shawarma, Filipinos also love rice, that’s why the one who created this Pinoy Shawarma Rice is a genius, Is he? Rice and Kebabs are nothing new, in fact in countries where kebabs are commonly sold, they sell it with the warp or rice, trust me I had seen...

Vanilla Braised Beef Cheeks

Vanilla in a savoury dish, that for me at least was unheard of, my reaction when I saw this once on a TV show I was, arhmmmmm. I was sceptical as I never had tried it and that combination does not seem to be logical to me, but after I...
