Bloggers Rock Tambayan Sa Kanto!



After the success of our "Fun with Philip" program launch last July 2014, me and my blogger friends returned in our favorite food tambayan, Tambayan Sa Kanto. This time, we enjoyed the event so-called "Tambayan Sa Kanto Bloggers' Night Food Trip" which I spearheaded.  

The event's main goal is to taste and review some of the best-selling Filipino foods offered by TSK and to have more information about this fine-dinning restaurant which serves all the best Filipino dishes around the region. But the event eventually turned into a fun-filled and another food-fulled night as the group enjoyed different social media games and wacky picture takings!

Social media played a great impact on the night of August 23, 2014 as the blogger participants posted cool, wacky, and yummy photos, activities, and statues in their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts about the happening in TSK. The most creative, artistic, and cool posts with the most number of likes and shares won exciting cash prizes!

Well for the meantime, I will not focus on Tambayan's food. Rather, I'll share with you our cool and fun moments during our food trip. Here are some of our 'not-food' photos:

Oops, the fun and excitement didn't yet stop on that Saturday night!

Oh yes, the blogger with the best blog post for this event will win a special prize! Exciting!

Food Bits: Tasting a Crunchy Grilled Lobster at Tambayan Sa Kanto!



I admit, I am really a big fan of seafoods! Yes, if you ask me what type of food is my favorite, I'll definitely answer you with SEAFOOD. Grilled squid, calamares, shrimp, sugpo, oyster, and lobster are some of my favorite which comprise this category.

Before my 21KM major run in Milo Marathon on the last week of July, I've organized the relaunch of the lifestyle show "Fun with Philip." When Philip Abadicio, the host of the TV show asked me if what restaurant should we conduct the Bloggers' Night for his show, I quickly recommended Tambayan Sa Kanto! Yes, this is my favorite restaurant which offers the all-time favorite Pinoy cuisine from the different regions of the country. When Philip visited the said place, he agreed with me! The place is so nice and the foods were great!

When the actual bloggers' night took place on a rainy Saturday night, all my blogger friends who were invited got amazed when the resto served us their best dishes. Actually from appetizer to main dishes up to the dessert and drinks served to us, walang itulak-kabigin! "Panalo sa sarap at uniquness!" 

Well, before I share with you the different great foods served to us during our event, allow me to put first in spotlight this main dish called Grilled Lobster! "Favorite ko 'to e!" 

"Itsura pa lamang, ang sarap na," I said to myself! Aside from squid or pusit, lobster or alupihan is really my childhood favorite! And it excited me when Ms. Margaret, the owner of this resto shared with me that part of the menu in the main dish is this yummy grilled lobster!

I often tasted a fried or a sinangag na lobster but Tambayan Sa Kanto put a new twist to my favorite seafood dish. They served us their grilled version with lemon butter sauce! "Wow, ang sarap!" It truly tasted great! I can say that their very own version of grilled lobster is the best seafood dish I've tasted so far! 

This grilled lobster is so crunchy and crispy! "Malutong mula laman hanggang balat!" "Talagang hindi ko pinatawad namnamin ang malinamnam niyang balat!" It's awesome! The lemon butter sauce added more flavor to the grilled lobster!

"More rice please!" This grilled lobster with extra steamed rice served as my carbo-loading on my 21km. major run hours later. :)

On my next posts, I'll share with you more great foods served to us by Tambayan Sa Kanto.

Food Bits: Get to Know 'Kare-Kareng Bagnet!'

Kare-Kare is one of my favorite ulam. I love the kare-kare made with pata or twualya (beef's internal part). Yes, this very own Pinoy favorite comes in different types or in different flavors. At first, I thought that kare-kare comes only in two (that I mentioned above). But actually, there's more!        
On Friday night, I met Kare-Kareng Bagnet in Tambayan Sa Kanto. And it tastes awesome! 

Well before I eat this yummy dish, I took first photos of it so that I can share it with you. So, feed your appetite and crave below: 



Bagnet is a crunchy pork's liempo. It is usually fried ala-lechon kawali or serves as a topping of lugaw. But this time, I found and tasted a new recipe for bagnet. That is via my favorite kare-kare.  

Kare-Kareng Bagnet was served with a saucy peanut sauce. Veggies like sitaw, talong (eggplant), and puso ng saging were mixed into it.

Served hot and freshly cooked, I couldn't helped myself to eat it! I even took home some to share it with my mother and brother. Just like me, they started to love this new breed of kare-kare

I truly salute Tambayan Sa Kanto for serving us a very Filipino cuisines like this! They are truly lifting up the Filipinos now in terms of serving our signature dishes, the regional favorite Pinoy foods.

Want to taste more?! Well, visit and dine in Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the ground floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Aside from Pinoy recipes, you can also enjoy great music every Friday and Saturday nights via Acoustic Nights featuring different artists.   

Two thumbs up Tambayan Sa Kanto, the place I love to hangout! (RCB) 

Food Bits: Tasting Tambayan's Very Own 'Tinapa Rice!'

Last Friday night, me and my good friend once more visited our favorite tambayan resto-bar in The Podium, the Tambayan Sa Kanto. We jammed with the celebrity guest Paolo Santos who was that night's "Acoustic Night" featured celebrity.     

What caught my interest during the night was the food I ordered. I got amazed when I learned that Tambayan offers a type of rice called "Tinapa Rice!" And this is unique which we can only order in Tambayan. 

We were very much familiar with fried rice, java rice, japanese rice, pandan rice, or any types of rice offered by different restaurants. Now this time, get ready to know Tinapa Rice

Check out the up, close photos of Tinapa Rice and tell me why it is called as such:   






Tinapa Rice is a rice topped with Tinapa (smoked fish) bits. Completing the cast of this very good yummy dish are itlog na maalat (salty egg), tomato slices, onion rings, and dahon ng sibuyas. It tastes a little salty which compromised the tasteless taste of the ordinary rice.     

As you can see, Tinapa Rice is very Filipino! If there is a Japanese Rice which carries the banner of Japan, then here at Tambayan, we have our very own Filipino Rice named Tinapa Rice which is Pinoy foods another flagship!

Tinapa Rice is only one of the great Filipino recipes that you can taste here and only here at Tambayan Sa Kanto. Yes, this resto-bar is a restaurant very much popular of serving different Filipino cuisines. Name your favorite Pinoy foods or regional foods, they have it cooked with love and hospitality - the two traits Filipinos are known! :) 

Want to taste more Pinoy favorites? Well, come and visit Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the Ground Floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Eat and enjoy the music! (RCB)
