A P24 Treat from Cowboy Grill @24

When someone mentions Cowboy Grill place or restaurant, it is immediately associated with great “pulutan” or meaty eats over drinks of beer or a variety of cocktail drinks plus awesome LIVE band music situated in the heart of Manila.

If yours truly has an event or show at the CCP (Cultural Center of the Philippines) or within the area, we would continue the after show party and get together at Cowboy Grill for those reasons mentioned earlier. ☺

And  did you know that dear Cowboy Grill is celebrating their 24th anniversary this year? Time really fliest super fast the restaurant is a year shy from celebrating its silver year.

Just recently, we received a personal invitation to grace the recently-held blogger’s conference to announce one of Cowboys Grill’s several promos lined up.

The first Cowboy Grill started when Shakey’s decided to shift to a family-oriented restaurant from a food outlet with live entertainment. To retain the live band concept, the owners decided to establish Cowboy Grill, right next to Shakey’s.

Cowboy Grill celebrates it’s 24 years in the business of giving the people a happy place to eat and drink. Having a great place with great entertainment, delicious and reasonably priced dishes, attentive and friendly staff as well as keeping up with the latest trends are their strong foundations that keeps them going for all these years. 

“For the past 24 years, we remain steadfast in providing our valued guests with high quality entertainment and premium products that are reasonably priced and served promptly by our friendly employees. We are so thankful to our loyal guests who have continued to support and patronize us. We are celebrating a milestone with a renewed passion and a vision for the future,” said Mr. Solomon Caasi, Jr., Cowboy Grill’s chief operating officer.“For the past 24 years, we remain steadfast in providing our valued guests with high quality entertainment and premium products that are reasonably priced and served promptly by our friendly employees.

“We are planning to adapt a family-oriented restaurant concept, while retaining the live band concept. We want to create a good balance between the two concept. The live bands remains our biggest draw, our biggest competitive edge. But we also want to welcome other market segment which we have yet to tap,” he continued.

Established by its founding chairman Leopoldo L. Prieto, who brought the first Shakey’s Pizza restaurant in the Philippines, the first Cowboy Grill started when Shakey’s decided to shift to a family-oriented restaurant from a food outlet with live entertainment. To retain the live band concept, the owners decided to establish Cowboy Grill, right next to Shakey’s.

 Through the years, Cowboy Grill has evolved and became the best place where the party starts, with live bands, great food and unique experience.

 To this day, its guests enjoy freshly prepared items such as its famous Sisig dishes, Crispy Pata, Buffalo Wings, and Nachos. Though they still serve their bestsellers, Cowboy Grill has adapted with the times and now served pasta and chicken meals, as well as pizza choices such as Cowboy Especiale, Nachos Pizza, All-Meat Pizza, Seafood Pizza, Sisig Supreme and Manila Pizza, to cater to much wider taste preferences of its customers.

 This year, Cowboy Grill is gearing towards introducing its daytime operation. For the past years, Cowboy Grill operates from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m., opening its doors to dinner and party crowd. The company plans to shift to a more family-oriented concept, tapping the lunch crowd.

 As part of the ongoing improvements, Cowboy Grill will experiment with a more contemporary design which will influence the look of the brand as a whole.

 “Right now, our interiors has that bar look – with black chairs and tabletops, dimly lit interiors, strobe lights, among others. In the next months, we will undergo some renovations to balance the look – it needs to have that cozy, comfortable ambiance of a family restaurant, yet it has to still be edgy and contemporary that suits the party vibe,” according to Mr. Erickson Caper, marketing manager.

 Aside from this expansion, Cowboy Grill kick started the change with the introduction of the Hot & Ready take-out counter. Starting 9 a.m., the take-out counter opens its patrons to enjoy Cowboy Grill bestsellers on its off-hours. The company has also introduced its catering services, as well as delivery functions.

 “We are a one-stop shop for your dining needs. People think that Cowboy Grill is just a bar, no kids allowed. We want to change that perception. This year, we are working on re-introducing Cowboy Grill as a restaurant and bar. We are shifting from entertainment to family-oriented dining concept, extending our operation hours from 6p.m. to 5a.m. to 10a.m. to 5a..m., Mr. Caasi continued. “Aside from the main dining and live bands, we will focus on catering and function services, as well as delivery and takeout.”


Its loyal customers who always come to Cowboy Grill because of its live bands need not worry. The restaurant will retain the live band aspect of the business. Today, Cowboy Grill has a roster of approximately 30 bands performing different music genres. The bands have already gained their strong following among the customers.

 

“Cowboy Grill has always been synonymous with live bands. We will keep that concept. We are still looking at how to integrate the two concepts. Who knows we might even introduce acoustic performances with slow, chill music during the daytime, while they’ll be a full-set up for live bands at night. This year’s expansions and changes are just the turning points, leading to our 25th anniversary next year.”

 

Through the years, Cowboy Grill manages to maintain its growing business, anchored on good food, good service and quality entertainment and they shall continue to do so for many years to come. 

Congratulations and many more power and business years be unto you to our friends at Cowboy Grill!

HOBE Noodles Very Happy With Endorser Ms. Ai Ai

Celebrity comedianne, actress, host, brand ambassador and philanthropist Ms Ai Ai de las Alas recently met with us bloggers to let us know that she has renewed her existing contract with Hobe Bihon and Noodles group under Marikina Foods. 
“Yes it’s my third year na with HOBE. And I am happy at thankful kasi isa itong blessing from God. Lagi ko silang pinagpi-pray. Actually lahat ng mga endorsements ko. Kasi di ba, iyan ang gusto nii Lord, bukod sa humihinngi ng blessings, dapat talaga matuto tayong magpasalamat sa lahat-lahat!”

Earlier while waiting for Ms. Ai, we were able to Q&A with the owner Mr. Bobby Co. I personally asked him what are exciting line ups/activities in store now that she is with them again this year.

“We had a significant growth in sales, thanks to Ai Ai.” shares Mr. Co. “That’s why we got her again because she is an effective endorser. We will have a palengke tour again. Our products are very popular in the provinces as well.”


In my personal home cooking needs, I also use Hobe products because I find the texture of their noodles to be firm. All thanks to the cornstarch ingredient. I

Hobe’s line of noodles selection already has the Hobe Express Instant Pancit Bihon variants that come in Seafood, Chicken and Oriental Guisado flavors. This is for those who prefer eating the very classic thin bihon noodles instead of the common pancit canton other favorite.



Feel Refreshed with “Blended”

Are you fond of a variety of fruit juices out in the market right now?
I love juices so much so when they are extracted from the actual fruit or herbs. 

I recently discovered “Blended” at the recent History Con 2017 which is personally made and is the latest business of a colleague’s sister.
Awesome stuff! Must try five flavors: Lychee Pandan, Hibiscus with Passion Fruit, Wintermelon with Lemongrass, Citrus Ginger and Peach Rosemary.


Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, also known as rose mallow, is an attractive flower native to subtropic and tropical climates all over the world. Its petals are used to make hibiscus tea, a beverage which has been consumed in many different regions for centuries, including West Africa, Persia, Mexico, Ghana, Cambodia and Egypt. It is recognised in many cultures as a medicinal plant, and is used to treat colds and improve skin health, amongst many other applications.
Lychee Pandan

While purple passion fruit is high in vitamin C, riboflavin, vitamin B2 and copper; yellow passion fruit generally has a higher nutritional value and contains alpha-carotene. Yellow passion fruits are normally used for juice processing. Passion fruit juice has a bright yellow or orange color and a strong exotic flavor.

Rosmarinus officinalis, commonly known as rosemary, is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple, or blue flowers, native to the Mediterranean region

Peach juice is deliciously made fresh from a glut of peaches. It can be drank on its own, or combined with other juices, cocktails, or punches to add peach flavor to the drinks.

The Uniqueness of 5 Loaves & 2 Fish Restaurant

Discovering a new restaurant is always a fun adventure! ☺☺
Just recently, yours truly alongside other food and lifestyle bloggers got an exclusive invite to check out 5 Loaves & 2 Fish restaurant located at The Rock, mini mall, in Don Antonio Heights, Quezon City.
Upon entering the premises, you could immediately feel the homey vibe aside of course from the delicious food and desserts this resto has in store. With a high ceiling set up, the place looks and feels cozy and it makes you want to stay and linger longer while enjoying their sumptuous menu with family or friends.
My associates could not help but adore the meal samples displayed at the presentation table. The owner of 5 Loaves & 2 Fish, Ms. Dinah Miro, wanted to share their best sellers as well as personal favorites to us all. Like most of restaurant owners, her family’s passion is good food not only for the body but also for the soul. This also explains the biblical verses around the resto and into their wall design. These have fully inspired Ms. Dinah and her family to put up 5L2F.

On hand also was Chef Jay Sycip who aside from taking care of the valuable menu, is also responsible for the store’s operations. And yes he is related to the legendary and iconic and famous founder of SGV accounting firm, Mr. Washington Sycip through his dad. Way to go, chef!

And from the looks of it, the cake was yummy-looking and I was impressed how it was designed highlighting the matcha feel. The smell of matcha was likewise so prevalent and it enticed my appetite for a quick bite.
According to Chef Jay, the cake has no preservatives so it is advisable to consume it all right away. Whoaaa!
Many thanks Ms. Dinah! 

The price range for the cake slice is between Php 145 to Php 180 per slice. They are not overly sweet compared to some well-known bakeshop. Among their best sellers are the cheesecake, chocolate cakes, pink guava cakes, matcha green tea cheesecake , dulce de leche.

Cool Tips for a Long Weekend

Don’t you just love long weekends? This is so applicable to working professionals and students alike!

This June 26 is Eid’l Fitr, in the calendar this year, it means another long weekend may be coming up. While we wait for the official announcement, everyone’s now scrambling to snag those promo fares or bus tickets to take advantage of this free Monday. We’re not all that lucky though, so if you won’t be able to whip up a quick vacation, here are a few things that will keep you entertained without leaving the city. Some of them are even free!
The best thing about a long weekend in the city is there are way less people crowding the streets and restaurants. Here’s your chance to head to some of those sought-after restaurants you can’t seem to get a free table in. Grab a seat at the 20-seater Mendokoro Ramenba at Salcedo Village in Makati, the tiny but super popular La Chinesca at BF Homes in Paranaque, or the full-to-the-brim Locavore in BGC or Kapitolyo.
Looking for someone who knows how to have fun? Turn to the little ones, whether you have your own kids, your young relatives, or your mommy-friend’s tots. There are so many things to do around Manila during the long weekend, but bringing the kids along will give it that extra energy and humor. Take a kalesa tour around the beautiful Intramuros, visit the many museums around the city and the newly-opened Planetarium in Manila, or let their (and your) energy loose at the many activities at SM by the Bay, Kidzania, or Dreamplay.
If you’ve been trying to live a healthier lifestyle which is a must, perhaps a visit to BPI-Philam’s Win the Moment Wellness Festival will help you jumpstart this change. Head to Trinoma Activity Center on June 24 and participate in interactive booths that let you experience total wellness – not just physical but also social, emotional, mental and financial. From dance classes by G-Force, life-sized board games, and inspirational talks that help you pursue passion without losing all your live savings, the Win the Moment Wellness Festival brings a unique experience to all Filipinos.

Top it off with a mini concert by KZ Tandingan and Quest, and you’ve crossed out one full day! Just download the Philam Vitality Active App from the Apple Store or Google Play and use the promocode bplacwtm to gain free entrance.

I hope you were all able to take note of these. Share me later what happend?

So enjoy your looooong weekend before the end of this month! Cheers! ☻☻☻

 

Be a Neu Bake Super Slice Fan Just Like Baeby-Baste

Known to the general public as dabarkads and super cutey Bae-by Baste, the four year old child superstar from the daily noon time show Eat Bulaga has been making waves since his YouTube dubsmash days up to this very day. That is why the country’s leading bread manufacturer Gardenia got him and his loving mom Sheila to be the latest endorsers of Neu Bake Super Slice variant.

Sebastian Benedict Granfon, aka Baste is a bright, precocious young boy who never fails to liven up our afternoon with his charm, wit and natural flair for comedy.

Neu Bake’s Super Slice which is bigger than most white breads in the market, making it perfect for Baste’s big appetite. During the special mother and son bonding time of Bae-by Baste and Mommy Sheila at their recent media launch, while her mom was busy sharing their cute sandwich stories, he was also busy doing his own thing with his sandwich and fillings.
Mommy Sheila further shares that as a mom, it is important to prepare healthy food to our children. Just like his son who loves egg and ham sandwiches among others, the food bonding moments they share keep them closer together. She loves preparing these bread snacks and packs them as “baon” for Baste his daily noon time duties.

The media is goo-goo ang gaga over Bae-by Baste. In here, he was being interviewed by a couple of showbiz reporters from TV5 and GMA Kapuso 7. And his candid answers make him more cute and adorable!
Say cheeeeeese!!!

Even the staff of Gardenia’s Neu Bake Super Slice could not resist having this cool group photo op with Mommy Sheila and Baste. And how that red apron looks nice on him!
Of course, yours truly was a success in this spotlight-like selfie with dabarkad Baste. It’s been in my bucketlist of mine to have a photo with this babe and thank you Neu Bake for making it sooo happen!

Neubake Super Slice comes in a horizontal, super tipid pack and only costs P29 for 10 slices. You may also try the Wheaten Bread variant which I personally like!

NeuBake is now available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores.

Many thanks Chelle Campos for having us during Bae-by Baste’s event with Neu Bake Super Slice. Until the next ones to come! ☺♥☺
