KitKat Ice Cream

When I get on the bus after school, I usually get tired. Or hungry. Or both. But today, I felt both tired and hungry. So I bought myself a KitKat ice cream from the Nestlé Ice Cream vendor near our school. KitKat ice cream is basically a cone which has chocolate ice cream and a KitKat … Continue reading KitKat Ice Cream


It’s a bad idea to drink Nesquik with sweeteners

Like I mentioned before, Nesquik is a sweet-tasting chocolate- (also in strawberry)- flavored drink from Nestlé. For me, Nesquik needs a little sugar because if it has no sugar at all, it tastes bitter. But when my aunt prepares Nesquik, she adds TOO MUCH sugar so it becomes overpoweringly sweet. I've argued with her that … Continue reading It’s a bad idea to drink Nesquik with sweeteners

Nestea Lemon in powdered form

My aunt always has a stock of Nestea instant powdered iced tea, and a lot of the time, I end up drinking anything but lemon flavor. This is because Nestea lemon tastes like lemon mixed with an unidentifiable and artificial ingredient. The other flavors taste more natural. The flavor that tastes closest to pure lemon … Continue reading Nestea Lemon in powdered form

CDO Burger Patties vs. King Sue Burger Patties

I've been recently eating burger patties for lunch and dinner. They're frozen beef-based patties that can be used in sandwiches, snacks, or meals. They're easy to fry and pre-seasoned so you don't have to lose a lot of time and effort making patties from scratch, especially on busy days. At first I tried the King … Continue reading CDO Burger Patties vs. King Sue Burger Patties

Nestlé Snack

In a 7-Eleven branch in Hong Kong, I saw this German chocolate called Nestlé Snack, a milk chocolate-covered wafer with milk filling inside. I liked that neither the chocolate coating nor the milk filling isn't too sweet, and they both complement the wafer's mildness. So the entire candy bar's flavors are balanced. It also doesn't … Continue reading Nestlé Snack

Chinese chicken-flavored snack

Another of the Chinese goodies we recently got was a chicken-flavored snack called Good Good Eat. It looked like deep-fried crunchy broad egg noodles. I expected them to taste like chicken, but instead they tasted a little toasty and not too salty. I liked that its flavor was on the mild side so I could … Continue reading Chinese chicken-flavored snack

Vitasoy Lemon Tea

My recent exploration of Binondo included a trip to a Chinese grocery store called Mandarin Supermarket. The weather was warm, and I was craving for something that was either soda, cold water, or iced tea. Out of the shop's beverage options, the only drink that remotely attracted me was lemon tea whose packaging was very … Continue reading Vitasoy Lemon Tea

Eating Chinese noodles at a vegetarian restaurant in Manila

Today, I visited a vegetarian restaurant in Binondo, Manila called Quan Yin Chay. My mom and I wanted to try eating here, after she heard many positive reviews about it. We had a rice meal that came with three separate veggie meat-based dishes in different sauces: sweet Chinese asado, sweet-and-sour sauce, and a savory black … Continue reading Eating Chinese noodles at a vegetarian restaurant in Manila

McDonald’s Korean Chili Sauce: it goes with almost anything

McDonald's Hong Kong offers a wider variety of food than in the Philippines, and that also applies to their sauces that come with their food. At McDonald's Hong Kong, the Chicken McNuggets come with a choice between Korean chili sauce or curry sauce. I picked the former. The Korean chili sauce tastes like it has … Continue reading McDonald’s Korean Chili Sauce: it goes with almost anything
