After checking the menu book, I told the service crew, “1 Chiquititta please.” Then, he answered, “Chiquitta Ma’am? ” (No answer-thinking deeply…hmmm whatever, I’m hungry) “Okay Ma’am,” he added. One of my colleagues ordered rice toppings and other foods I wasn’t able to take photos with. I was hungry. Hehehe
Later when I already finished the food, my colleague asked for a menu book again for an additional order and when I glanced at the one I ordered, it was…Chiquitta. Well, there’s no big deal about it. I just do not have anything to blog today. Weeh Read the rest of this entry »

Wagyu burger. I was surprised when Korina mentioned about this so called burger that is found in the Philippines adn particularly in Cebu.
This can be bought at Hilton Cebu Resort and Spa, one of Cebu’s four star hotels. Hilton is located at Mactan Island just about 30 minutes drive from Cebu City. They serve Wagyu for only 1,400 pesos or about 31.42 US dollars ( 2011 rate).

Wagyu – literally means Japanese Cow.
Wagyu – refers to several breeds of cattle, the most famous of which is hereditarily predisposed to concentrated marbling and to producing a high percentage of oleaginous unsaturated fat.

Looking at the burger itself, it seems of no difference from the classic burger. So it’s the beef that makes it expensive. The beef from Japan.
