An unassuming establishment at the ground floor of Exchange Regency Residence Hotel in Ortigas. Benassi Alimento E Caffe is easy to miss once you make a turn to the inner Jade road from Exchange Road in Ortigas. However, those who spot this humble dining space is in for a treat. Benassi is a family-run restaurant. Filipino-Italian owner Katia Benassi was born and raised in Italy and brought their beloved home-cooked Italian favorites in Manila.
Street side eats adds a welcome change as food trucks roll in at Capitol Commons in Pasig. Just within the neighborhood, I checked out this rising commercial area that’s set to redefine the lifestyle of Pasig residents and more. I’m surprised to see a manicured garden, stylistic lamp post, oh so inviting benches, wide spaces and nice breeze amidst constructions. The ambiance is already there, now what’s missing? How about some great eats! Here comes the Food Truck Parks‘ offerings, delivering an all new dining experience at Capitol Commons.

Avocado is one of my favourite fruits and being a sucker for desserts, the combination of the fruit on a cake is lethal. Strolling along with a fellow foodie friend in the streets of Kapitolyo, Pasig, which is fast becoming a food hub with a lot of new dining options popping up, we discovered Lia’s Cakes in Season.

Nowadays, the choice of beverages has never been so complicated. It’s no longer as simple as coffee or tea but a more complex mixture of ingredients suited exclusively to one’s palate. Take for example the growing popularity of Milk Teas in the past years as a healthy alternative drink. Though I’ve never been really a fan, there’s no harm in trying especially when Cha Dao Tea Place gave us an opportunity to try out their Milk Teas.
