Every Coffee Needs a @LotusBiscoff_PH

All the way from Europe, Lotus Biscoff finally lands in Manila. Thanks to Fly Ace Corporation. Frankly, this Speculoos cookie butter spread craze got me curious in the last couple of years. But because the spreads are so evasive and hard to get our hands on, we only get to really enjoy them when they’re made available by online sellers, for so much more than they really should be sold for. I am so loving Fly Ace Corporation that they have acquired exclusive distribution of Lotus Biscoff. This means no more having to reserve with online sellers, who for the most part, hike up the price because of its growing demand.

I don’t know about you, but between Lotus Biscoff and another popular Speculoos Cookie Butter spread, I love the former more. Lotus Biscoff is just way more spreadable than the other. As I mentioned in  a previously published Speculoos post, I love incorporating cookie butter spread in the scones and cookies that I bake. Lotus Biscoff’s spreadability is the best amongst the cookie butter brands. The mix of its spices come alive right from first bite. It can highly be addictive. I love it best, spoonful and straight from the jar though. Haha! 🙂

While this cookie butter thing might have been around for sometime now, it wasn’t until last week did I learn the origins of the celebrated Biscoff. Apparently, the play of name came from ‘Bis’ of ‘biscuit’ and ‘Coff’ of ‘coffee.’ 🙂

Latest Food Find: Tokyo Joe

The hubby and I super love Japanese food that it’s almost a default for us when we want to go food tripping. Unless we happen to crave for steak, that is. The thing about Japanese restaurants in the metro, there aren’t a lot of affordable ones.

There is this recently launched Japanese restaurant on the block by the fun name of Tokyo Joe, located at the Spark Place along P. Tuazon, Cubao, Quezon City. Tokyo Joe is a casual Japanese restaurant that serves the Gyudon a.k.a. Beef Bowl Misono, the 100-year old Japanese recipe of rice topping with the option to enjoy complimentary items like drinks, California Maki, Age Gyoza, or other sidings to go with it. I love that I can throw in add-ons according to my “Japanese” mood. I have yet to see a restaurant that allows for diners to customize their plates like that.
