ez.yummy: The Art and Fun of Food Trips!

ND-HRM Exhibit at UIC

Among the courses offered by the The University of the Immaculate Conception are Nutrition and Dietetics and Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM). These two courses are the most delicious of all. Lol! Simply because they hold annual food events and exhibits that either let people sample their food or be in a fine-dining event with a full out buffet from various cuisines. See how delicious this course is? :)

The photos you're seeing below are a part of one of their annual exhibits. These are created by students. It was a shame that the spectators weren't allowed to sample these mouth-watering treats. They were all for the eyes only. Nevertheless, they were yummy foods for the eyes! Kudos to the ND-HRM students of UIC who participated in this event.

Chippens Blueberry Cheesecake: Heaven in a small plate

Once upon a time, I would go to Chippens Restaurant for a great buffet. But nowadays, I go there to get my own heaven in a small plate that has a serving of their blueberry cheesecake. The Diminishing Returns Law does NOT apply to my cravings for this heavenly Chippens dessert. Lol! I just can't get enough of it. In fact, writing this entry is making me go there now and so I would have to stop. :D Later, guys!

Grub Resto Cafe's Spaghetti and Meatballs: A Must Try

If you're a fan of spaghetti, and that of the Italian type, then you'd be a huge fan of Grub's very own Spaghetti and Meatballs. This rich and creamy pasta's taste has a hint of herbs that I couldn't fathom. The reason being the fact that the only herbs whose scent I'm familiar to is the Rosemary and Basil and I'm doubtful of these two's existence in Grub's dish. (Okay, maybe the basil, but not definitely not the Rosemary).

You would maybe know better about what the darned herbs are once you taste this dish. It's spaghetti that is the keeper type. You're in for a treat.

Grub's Spaghetti and Meatballs

Grub's Resto Cafe is located at Duterte Street, Davao City.

Joniel's Cakes and Pastries

My sister is a sucker for the sweets of Joniel's Cakes and Pastries. So when my nephew, her son, baby Lance turned 2 years old, she most certainly bought the cake from there. 

It's really a favorite of mine, but their cakes are quite good. The chocolate cake in particular, is very rich in flavor. It's a little too sweet for me. But for my sister it's perfect. What I do like about it though is that it's incredibly heavy! It's fully-packed chocolate cake that rarely has holes in it. lol! I actually mean those tiny little holes inside cakes that make them puffy sometimes and not so rich.

Anyway, here are a couple of photos of our dear Baby Lance's 2nd Birthday cake from Joniel's. Happy birthday, Baby Lance!

You can find Joniel's at Jacinto Ext. Street, Davao City. It's right across Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.

Apple Pie at Seagull Mountain Resort

Seagull Mountain Resort doesn't have a lot on their menu. Apple pie is one of the few things they do have and I have to say it...tastes...awesome! I think the powdery layer on top adds some sort of twist to it. It's incredibly delicious. Not too sweet. Not too fruity. Has enough cinnamon in it. All ingredients seem to be amounted perfectly in this dessert creation of theirs. I surely will be getting an entire box when I'd get the chance to go back there. I didn't get to do so the last time coz they were out of it :(
