These past few months, there has been an infestation of new food places around the metro, what with all the new malls and mall expansions to boot. Hollywood Burgers is one of the newcomers and it’s set to give the people of Davao an authentic American Diner experience.
I got to try it last Sunday with Yuan. When I entered the place, I immediately thought of classic American Diners, where waitresses are wearing tight fitting mini-skirts and roller blades. Hollywood Burgers does not have girls on wheels, but their waitresses sure do wear extra mini skirts (with stockings, of course). Plus, the set-up is truly Americanized, if you wanna call it that way. Anyway, the place was pretty congested when we got there, but we were too tired to even bother looking for another place.

I was having a terrible toothache yesterday, but that did not stop me from attending the Cafe France Media Brunch. I’ve been stalking their website for days since I got the invitation from the Davao Bloggers. So yes, I cannot not go.
Cafe France has been around for years, but it is their first time to venture on a branch outside of Luzon. They are set to capture the hearts of Davaoeños with their opening of stores at the Manila Bulletin Bldg. Rizal Street, and at The Peak and Upper Ground Floor of Gaisano Mall of Davao.
“Cafe France is more than your usual coffee shop“, says Enya Baltazar, CF’s Business Head. “We go further by providing not only a place for a coffeebreak, but a hangout where people can relax, spend time with friends and family over good food any time of day“. Read More »
I’ve been eating out a lot lately and of course, like a true blogger, I took every opportunity to take photos and blog about them. Anyway, I recently visited Starbucks and tried their newest offering, Very Berry Hibiscus.
|Very Berry Hibiscus , Tall – 115php
At first I thought it was a fruit tea concoction, however, it tasted plain fruity. So no, it’s not tea. When I got home, I immediately Googled it and found out that it’s actually made with green coffee extract. What’s a Starbucks drink without coffee in it anyway.
As the name suggests, Very Berry Hibiscus is a mix of tangy Blackberry and Hibiscus with a boost of natural energy from Green Coffee Extract. I like it because I’m a fan of anything fruity. Plus, it’s really refreshing and a total thirst quencher; it reminds me of hot summer days — or Hawaii. It has bits of blackberry in it, which makes the drink pretty interesting. It’s actually my first time to try a Hibiscus drink (a.k.a Gumamela) and I am happy to report that it does not taste bitter or anything. Not that I’ve tasted raw Hibiscus flower before, It’s just that I have this thinking that flowers taste bitter and all. It claims to be a low-calorie beverage, too. My only note is that, I wish it tasted berry-er, if you know what I mean. =)
Starbucks Refreshers™ also come in Cool Lime. Do try them if you happen to pass by Starbucks.
