I first encountered The Romulo Food Group when  I was invited to try Tito Chef Express three years ago.  It was such a satisfying experience so when I was invited to the grand opening of Lazat Fil-Asian Restaurant & Bar, I had high expectations.

I am familiar that this place used to be Cerchio.  And, now it's rebranded to be Lazat which in Malay means “delicious”.

I love the interiors of the place.   The theme seems to be with related with sqaures and nature.

The party took place on the second floor with a food buffet and unlimited bar cocktails.

They also have an Al Fresco area which is my ideal chill place.

I could also settle for this area for more privacy.

We had a riceless meal because they offered 3 kinds of noodles!  The Char Kway Teow is the most flavorful.

Perhaps, I am biased to my favorite but I enjoyed the Pad Thai more.

The Bam-I is also good!

Overall, it was a great night of food and drinks.  No doubt this is another great concept by The Romulo Cafe Group.  Congratulations Lazat!  I will surely come back to try more of your offerings.

I've heard of Eton International School.  I only know it because it offers Chinese so it's a typical choice for Chinese in the area.  But, I was surprised to find out that they established Eton Global Institute Center for Culinary & Hospitality Management.

eton global institute
One Saturday, me and my friends joined in on the Breads and Spreads Lifestyle Course and we had so much fun!

The texture test

First there was a demonstration and then there was a hands-on experience where we had to do everything ourselves.  Each table or team had a chef on standby to assist and inspect.

The team practiced good teamwork.  We took turns in doing different tasks.

What I liked about the class is it thought us the basic foundation (from ground up).

eton global institute
Prior to this, I tried baking using pre-mixes bought from grocery stores.  But, it felt purely mechanical.  I did not understand how breads work.

Here's we understood the science and art of bread-making so we  knew how to measure, tweak and substitute ingredients. 

The schedule is also very systematic.  There wasn't any idle time at all.  While some breads were being baked, we did something else.

Our Italian Foccacia

And, the lessons were wholesome.  We were even thought on how to slice our Italian Foccacia.

Caramel Cinnamon Roll
During the class, we are given a recipe card.  (Perhaps, I will share all those soon). 

It was very well-prepared.  It lists down ingredients alphabetically with quantity and unit. 

It also lists down the procedure step by step. 

Aside from the learning part, we all discovered also how fun and therapeutic doing labor and seeing the fruit of our labor is.
It made us appreciate breads more.

In fact, my team (we named ourselves the "baguettes") are very proud of our masterpiece.

Although we know we have much to learn by practice and experience.

Overall, we loved the experience!  I'd happily come back to Eton Global Institute for more classes!

Lately, I've been experimenting with my time schedule.  So after work, I tried squeezing in attending a yoga class.  One day I was feeling extra energetic so I did two classes back to back: Vinayasa 1 and Rocket Yoga.  And... then I ended up in the mood to try H.I.D Burgers.

hid burgers
If you frequently gas up at the Caltex Station along Buendia, then you've probably noticed H.I.D Burger's Makati branch.  But, I don't so I recently just discovered this place. 

hid burgers makati
To my surprise, H.I.D Burgers Makati branch is packed during meal hours.

The crowd is a mix bunch from couples to group of friends.

I was hungry so as soon I was able to raid a seat, I began lining up to order.

They had a tempting challenge but someone tipped me about their sort of secret menu.  You can choose any burger and upgrade it to "Go Raclette" for an addition of 40 php.

And, you could also add on some Twister Fries which is also not on the menu for an addition of 45 php.


hid burgers makati
If you want the attention of the crowd, order any burger just like my H.I.D BLT Combo (155 php) and then "Go Raclette" (add 40 php).  Of course, everyone was looking at it while the server poured the hot raclette on top of my burger.

For the price I didn't think that my burger would be this big and this cheesy!!!

Had I known, I would have brought some company to share with.  I look around and although in groups, everyone had their own burger.  I guess it's because H.I.D's burgers is very reasonable so even if you don't finish it, it's still wise to just take home the rest.

You can use their plastic gloves or like me just use knife and fork.  Because just look at the size of their beef patty plus sausage plus bacon.  And, they only have 1 size!  This is the standard size.

And, their bacon is not the fatty small cut.  It is a big, long and lean strip.  There are several pieces of it too.

Hot Wings
honey sriracha mild
Honey Sriracha Mild (180 php/6 pcs.)

This is first time I've encountered honey and srircha wings.  Although I prefer an intense spiciness, sometimes mild to appreciate the flavor is good too.  The honey was evident but I didn't feel any spiciness at all from the sriracha.  It also didn't feel like chili but more of pepper.  It was surprisingly good.  The size was the biggest I've encountered.  And, the outer coating is perfectly crunchy while the meat was juicy!  I think I enjoyed this more than the burger.

cheesy bacon wedge fries
Cheesy Bacon Wedge Fries (160 php)

Another must try is the Cheesy Bacon Wedge Fries.  How can we resist a cheese and bacon combination right?  Order this for sharing because again they offer generous serving!

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
While I'm not sure if H.I.D Burgers really stands for its transliteration of "Healthy"... but it is "Irresistibly Delicious" for a shockingly affordable price.  If you want a really heavy meal without breaking the bank, you can go here.  And, be sure to bring some company too because the serving size is generous!
