Krispy Kreme Doughnuts could have simply been spelled Crispy Cream Donuts; and Crème might have sounded off a different impression… Yet, they’re being original.

I donut err did not see that coming… or at least, ‘donut’ assume.

It’s common knowledge that you donut — ok, let’s stop with that “donut” thing… Eat doughnut. I means ‘It’s doughnut’… Both are acceptable actually but donut is not “do not”… Now, I sound weird or that sounded more confusing …or not!

If only that heart-shaped donut is upside down, that could have been “OA”

Anyway, much like doughnut and donut, no matter how both could be associated with that of what’s actually referred to, there are still differences in so many attributes (i.e., history, origin, etc.) Spelling for one… Funny thing is that a doughnut or donut has a hole in the middle like it’s a void that needs to be filled. However, it’s what gave it character. What seemed to be a “loophole” (pun intended) was actually an edge. As round as it is, a donut has an edge.

Little did we know, we just had to see through in the middle of it all. True enough, we might as well “read between (the lines)” ‘cause the only difference (spelling-wise) is between the “do” and the “not err nut”. “UGH!” Right, “ugh”, why didn’t I see that… “Do – ugh! – nut!”

Eats ! It stands for riginal… (during the opening of the riginal Krispy Kreme Baguio branch 4 years ago – read about “A’s” blog post…)

Exactly! ‘Cause we’ve been caught up in the societal standard of comparing things and people… rather than celebrating the difference. We saw the “hole”, more than understanding the reason for it. We all have that hole. We all have that seeming imperfection. We all feel some level of emptiness. Yet we’re whole… we’re perfectly serving a purpose. We’re unique. We’re all original.

“Doughnut Think You’re Not Good Enough.” Thus, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts celebrates our originality through their Original Glazed doughnuts with a fitting promo (Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Baguio will be giving away a box of 6 Original Glazed doughnuts for free – you can also check promo mechanics here). Here in Baguio, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts likewise celebrates with the city for the likewise Baguio-original, the Panagbenga. What better way to embrace ‘originality’ than express their new tagline “Every One is An Original” with Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Baguio’s “Happy Panagbenga Half Dozen Treat” promo as you could experience the originals… One original to another, YOU! ‘Cause yes, #EveryOneIsAnOriginal!

Open a ‘K’an of happiness… this Krispy Kreme Doughnuts’ Double Chocolate Strawberry Cake is a Baguio original… as much as every provincial branch has their own regional offering for a treat, I think, as Krispy Kreme (Philippines) believes that #everyoneisanoriginal. “Up in the Mountain of Originals” Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is one with the community to celebrate a Baguio-original, the Panagbenga In celebration of the Panagbenga and in promoting originality, Krispy Kreme Baguio had us design our “original Panagbenga doughnut”… This is “O’s” and I call it “D’ O’ Note, A Gain!” #EveryOneIsAnOriginal And this was “A’s”… I don’t know what she calls it. So I’ll just call it “A Donut Know” My favorite though is still the Original… Dean Cuanso

PayMaya: “Pay My A…” or “Pay Me A…”

“PayMaya ‘nough leeway to dine without eating up time…”

or “Pay Me An” adequate time is like saying “buy me some time…”

OA: Online Accession

“PayMaya visit without rushing…”

~ That’s “Pay Me A visit that’s worth my while” which you’d most likely be reminded of because today’s “fast times”, each fleeting moment is valued as every passing instant eats up a big chunk of a would’ve been longer precious time…

“PayMaya ‘fter isn’t likely…”

On to a lunch date during office break but you still have to withdraw cash and the ATM queue is rather a cue to feel the rush… and what if it’s offline? (Same thing with having to pay bills and stuff…) The worse thing though is that after the ‘eat out’, you realize that you don’t have enough cash or you forgot your card… Bummer! You don’t expect them to say “Pay Me After…” Chances are, they rather have you wash the dishes…

“PayMaya ‘ccommodation or something…”

There are also moments wherein you just don’t like carrying too much cash but then, there’s this compelling reason to buy something (on a whim) perhaps; on a vacation or any given day. So I “Pay My Accommodation” (which includes accommodating our impulse…) through my PayMaya app, hassle-free…

“PayMaya moment, you may be able to relate…”

For ‘Eats OA’, we usually eat where our cravings lead us. There are times when either our budget or cash on hand doesn’t allow us to. Then there’s that moment where you check where and what cards are accepted. While out of town, you usually bring just enough cash for contingency… To save on time and effort among other possible expenses, every concerned aspect has been set about online prior to the trip…

“PayMaya ‘ssurance…”

For all the convenience and even soundness and protection, it has always been more convenient in settling all these ‘what-have-yous’ cashless… Indeed, “Pay My Assurance” ~ with PayMaya, you likewise get “rewarded” with such commitment.

“PayMaya ‘cquisition…”

True enough, with or without your card, with the PayMaya App, you can now pay for your expenses/purchases, cashless. A virtual card. “Pay My Acquisitions” is a good way to put it amidst today’s technological breakthrough for all its worth not just because it’s what’s ‘in’ but because it’s the “It” thing. The “It” card… It’s PayMaya! It doesn’t eat up too much of your time yet, it consumes a satisfying amount of consummate serving. It allows us to eat out, cashless. Eats OA!!

OA: iOS or Android

All of that said, it’s “compensatingly” called PayMaya for a reason. For all “eats” worth, the more we can consume that satisfaction of having the convenience to feast on obtainable resources cashless. It might as well stand for Possible Acquisitions You May Acquire Yet Automated… Cashless possibilities!

There’s this Chinese proverb that says “Enjoy yourself. It’s later than you think.” Just like today’s generation’s “YOLO reasoning”, it pertains to life experiences which, in most cases, includes dietary measures. Such rationalization might be misinterpreted as much as it may seem to contradict the many other Chinese proverbs. With a well-thought of objective however, much like how ‘Yin and Yang’ works, the same could be said about Chinese food…

Chowmien (Lotus House, Hotel Supreme)

And to rather extend that opportunity to “enjoy yourself”, a common Chinese staple is usually served for long life, noodles. Thus pancit, prepared even with other elements which likewise has its respective feeding representations (mixed vegetables for family harmony, shrimp for happiness and good fortune, among other ingredients), makes a fortunate sustenance all together.

Welcoming the Chinese New Year, we had the opportunity to celebrate the Spring Festival at Hotel Supreme.

Hotel Supreme Diamond Grand Ballroom

For all its worth and the accompanying symbolisms for worthwhile precedence, the partaken sumptuous feast amidst good company already epitomized abundance of blessings. Aptly ushering in a new beginning, the Year of the Pig was welcomed with a “meaningful banquet.”

Pork Asado

New beginning initiated through the advent of the Earth Pig as it happened, cuapao and pork asado were served, which I believe (combined) is for a new day and a bright future. Also taken into account is that pork likewise denotes strength, wealth and overflowing blessings.

Cuapao As the backdrop signifies, the ‘Star’ of the show… Year of the Earth Pig

Health is wealth, thus, it’s imperative to take balance into consideration… Accordingly, served as some appetizer prior to a likely hearty indulgence were peanuts for health. It’s also for long life, birth of prosperity, continuous growth, multiplication in wealth and good fortune as well as stability. Hmm, then I can just eat peanuts and I’m all good (with a “booze of confidence” ).

Gānbēi!! A toast to a healthier Fil-Chi relationship and a prosperous year ahead, headed by Consul General Zhou Youbin, Consulate of the People’s Republic of China in Laoag City (center, front row)

Gānbēi (that’s ‘cheers!’ in Chinese by the way) for spirits then! Quenching that thirst for Google insobriety though, there’s this Chinese saying “Wu jiu bu cheng xi” which means ‘dinner isn’t complete without alcohol’. However, in ceremonial gatherings, it’s not about getting intoxicated but for what they drink for, longevity and “forever”.

Just when we thought, “walang forever”… century egg isn’t just as “well-rounded” to either be served as an appetizer or a side dish, it’s also for fertility, resurrection, and eternal life. I guess, that’s why it goes well with jellyfish salad which represents yearly increase in prosperity. And there’s some kinda truth to it as you’d get that satisfaction of “eternal bliss”, taste-wise; so it’s not just all-talk.

Lotus House’ Yang Chow Fried Rice

True enough, “Talk doesn’t cook rice” is another Chinese proverb which may be as straightforward but implies a very meaningful insight. Much like rice itself, it’s probably the most common staple wherever, yet it’s served for all its significance ~ fertility, luck, wealth and a link between Heaven and Earth; like how it’s not a satisfying enough meal for me (at least or to every rice person) without rice ~ “Rice, you complete me(al)”, perhaps like heaven on earth sort of a connection.

And of course, what “connects” well with rice are the complementing viands…

Lotus House’ Steamed Lapu-Lapu in Ginger Leek Sauce Fish denotes an increase in prosperity as it signifies “surplus” or having extra money Thai Fried Chicken (Lotus House, Hotel Supreme) Chicken symbolizes joy, prosperity and family togetherness Fried Prawns with Chili Garlic Sauce from Lotus House lives up to what prawns are for ~ Liveliness! Braised Beef Flank with Black Mushrooms. The best Braised Beef we’ve had so far… Hot and Sour Soup

Chinese culture and tradition has a big influence on civilization which we are thankful for. Their regard for providence, more than a custom and heritage, it’s about faith that’s preferred to be shared through a tasteful manner. Through a comforting subsistence… through propitious dishes… through Chinese food.

*****

And for the possibility of all these, through Hotel Supreme’s value for the Filipino-Chinese relations, it‘s leaning towards these other two Chinese proverbs:

  • “Tell me and I’ll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll understand.”
  • “Preserve the old, but know the new.”

Under two different yet harmonizing generations of the father-and-son management ties of Mr. Peter Ng and son Jeff of Hotel Supreme, they did not just show us but encouraged for our social involvement. It was a preceptive experience. Nevertheless, there was no tastier way to gain these Chinese nourishing intakes than through the Spring Festival’s somatic, psychosomatic and gastronomic well-being hosted by Hotel Supreme. That “edible sense” of authenticity had us transported to China… Perhaps, it was the mushroom… Most likely because with mushroom, there’ll be much room for longevity and sizing opportunities then… Yeah! it’ll be all good this Year of the Earth Pig!

Lions are likewise dancing in celebration of the Earth Pig… Mr. Peter Ng (Chairperson, Executive Committee, Spring Festival 2019) addressing the audience as well as the strong ties of the Filipino-Chinese community Front row, third from left: Mr. Jeff Ng awarded with a much deserved recognition for Public Relations Future’s bright… Gânjī

Battle or bottle? “At war” with choices or battling with reason? “Drink water when you’re thirsty, drink beer when you’re quenched…” At Baguio Craft Brewery, you drink to celebrate… At Craft 1945, you celebrate “the drink!” — and the food (para walang away) Quite fittingly, it was 1945 when the war ended, some reason to celebrate as it was the (re)birth of good things we enjoy up to this day… much like the centuries-old Spanish influence on rich cuisine and beer…

The first time Craft 1945 took us back in “post-war time”, we celebrated our baby Bashang’s first month. And in-tune with ‘from when the war was to end’ along mid-1940’s, channeling some Gen. MacArthur in me, I reiterated his famous line. And a few months “Leyte’” (get it?), we returned…

…we celebrated the fusion of new beginnings and seasoned continuance with Baguio Craft Brewery’s craft beers. ‘Salud!’ to such certainty and complementing victuals, it likewise opened up something different to have you say it yet again: “I shall return!”

Returning for a drink, where shall you go? There’s the Baguio Craft Brewery along Marcos Highway. However, the merging of Casa Marcos and Baguio Craft Brewery to be ‘Craft 1945’ along Outlook Drive where Baguio Craft Brewery’s craft beers are likewise offered, it crafted a more flavorful integration between beer and appetizer.

Now, the battle of choices…

While Craft 1945’s food is more than just appetizers for a beer-match as it could as well satisfy your full-meal cravings, it’s undeniable that it makes the bout of occasional drinking more delightful, particularly with the aroma other than the accompanying zest.

With a lot of tempting options, the menu was a “battlefield”… like war dogs, we sniffed our way out. While enjoying my glass of ‘Kraken’, its lightness seemed to have wafted with the appetizing aroma permeating from the kitchen (considering that we were at the patio under the foliage of pine trees). Like you know how those vintage warplanes are hovering above you, (propeller) whirling its presence… The stronger it pervaded the air as if tickling our olfactory nerves while it landed on our table. Thereupon, it was the Mushroom Adobo we ordered. As forks battled it out, “battlecry: no one gets left behind!”

Certainly, the “Englishman in New York” wouldn’t be left behind. He found his way up in Baguio to be with some ‘Spanish company’. ‘Ola Amigo!

‘Hola’ supposedly, yet more than “Eats ‘OA’” for a reason, it’s as “OA” as having a touch of Pinoy company. Si! “Englishman” mingled well with Sisig. Though of “Kapangpangan decent”, Craft 1945’s sisig had a touch of “Spanish Infusion”… Posiblemente, that’s the ‘SI’ in Craft 1945’s SIsig. Whereas, the 2nd “si” could as well stand for what’s “yes” in Spanish as its “Spice-nish” hint served the typical Filipino hospitality to go well with some of the Spaniards’ “staple intakes”. SI! Whereas for the “Englishman”, ‘Yes!’ And for Baguio Craft Brewery’s “Englishman” in Baguio, “Ok Alright! (OA)”

“Kraken a moment before the sun sets”

Speaking of staple and who also got a call, like some “CALL Of Service” ~ Callos. Before it was served, we thought, any Spanish restaurant would have to have callos at least…

It’s not your everyday-kind of home dish/viand yet regular enough to be some special offering. And it’s kinda “reassuring” I suppose that it’s likely to be compared per serving-wise and a thing you’d return for. Other than the taste, to answer “our call of service”, all the “seasoned better ones” (pun intended) outta be there. You know, Gen. Tripe, Col. Ox Feet, Maj. Garbanzo and Cpt. Bell Pepper… Craft 1945’s Callos’ “special four-ces” may rightfully declare, ‘Mission: Accomplished!’ after a few casualties perhaps… I’d demote them one rank lower though for some MIA… Missing In Action were the sufficient amount of ingredients as “the whole team” was rather “drowned” in their own sauce. However, “sauce palang, ulam na.” That time though, it didn’t serve as viand. So, I shall return and battle it out with rice.

Reporting as well for “fulfilling duty” is another Spain staple, Paella! I don’t know with you, but among some of my co-Pinoy drinking buddies from way back, drinking sprees are enjoyed with rice and a broth or stew-based viand for all the time-saving reasons I guess…

Craft 1945’s Paella served as our rice-&-viand dinner and beer-match at the same time. It certainly fulfilled its duty of saving time from that eat-first-before-drinking argument; much like how paella is a complete meal on its own. That of Craft 1945’s is even of ample serving to balance your food-and-drink intake. Apparently promoting peace or the end of war, Craft 1945’s Paella serving as beer-match is crafted for sharing, prepped for equal portioning of its elements. Sort of no “battle for supremacy over colonization there… battle for the shrimp, the egg, the squid, etc. Walang away-lasing.”

And just when you thought the “war” is over, there was another attack ~ Hop Attack! This is however an attack further on your reasoning. Seemingly, Baguio Craft Brewery’s Hop Attack reasoned with me as to its recommended stature over my personal choice, the Kraken. Both are equally good. And I’m not “Kraken” a joke as much as Hop Attack isn’t hopping into your sense of hope like some “half a tack”. Both will give you a beer-y good kick out of your decision as to what’s better. I’d say, “Krak an Attack!”

Usapang hindi lasing: A spot where your point of VIEW matters…

If you want some tips, try their Tenderloin Tips. It’ll serve as some peace offering with nutrimental trading value for the “prisoner of warring choices” in us not to be caught in that crossfire between beers. Whatever Baguio Craft Brewery beer you are to order, it’ll tender you liberation from such catch-22.

If it’s not a difficult mission after all, make that “Craft 22” ~ a battle of well-crafted choices between Baguio Craft Brewery beers and among Casa Marcos’ food… Because ang “craft22hanan”, you’ll engage in a good battle at Craft 1945. And your only choice is to be that “war hero” deserving of a “craft 22 grand salud!”

Cheers to good beer! A toast to good food! Tagay sa selebrasyon ng buhay! Somos vivas! Peace!

Like a roundabout (or a rotunda) that allows one to rather circle the options for the right direction, Loop (by Canto) is an avenue for a sustaining turnaround.

Take 5 and come in

There or the ‘Loop look’, much like the visual merchandising training session we conducted there among business proprietors and staff, each one gained a welcoming insight and a sense of satisfaction that’ll ‘Loop’ around into one’s sensory faculty for some conceptual fascination.

Loop similarly supplements one’s endorphin for life’s aspirations. To visualize. To want. To crave. To taste. To live. To affirm… This is the life… It allows you to reasonably relish a satisfying nourishment.

Artisanal

Yet as sophisticatedly simple as compared to what’s really lavish among the ‘Who’s Who’, it’s a way to “play around” (pun intended) with such an idea for a seeming imagination yet made real and attainable for the ordinary in us.

A cool place to chill among those with laidback disposition… Located at Leonardwood Loop, somewhat atop a hill with a lawn for a terrace,

it offers a refreshing breeze of Baguio’s countryside vibe amidst commercialism, making up for the few-and-far-between yet sought-after ambiance; the complementing promise of crisp weather and accessibility.

Boner

And an even easier (and tastier) way to be “in the loop”, one has to try and experience their Boner. Say what?! Yes, Loop’s fall-off-the-bone ribs is an ironic way to serve an orgasmic loop, “ribbing” with such hard and fitting byname yet soft and tender. Another manifestation of richness however decent enough; or perhaps like that of a princess falling for a commoner against all odds for all the right (love) reasons. Food porn apparently at its finest dining… One is likely to say, “glad I came”.

The washroom’s concourse

Indeed, at Loop, you’d somehow feel to have come full-circle experiencing a climactic sense of having arrived… Cozily. Cuddle after. Contrastingly, you have to let go of your reservations and thrust into a nurturing desire, reserve a “loop around your world”. Not to go in circles though, I mean ‘your loved ones’ as that could match a trip around the world. Or probably not… but in a way, you’d realize, the world is round. Not just with their Boner, “iikot din mundo mo.”

Discover another facet of yourself…

Without going in circles or within layman’s loop, “wala nang paikot-ikot pa”, for your dining reservations and events, make it as eventful. Be in the Loop, call 09563066069 or 09982600809 and look for Nicole

A portion (or a Porscha’n) where you’d be driven… Arrive in style Dine with gratification Eat with gusto Indulge

First of, Gloria Jean’s is from “down under” with over a thousand coffee shops around 39 countries. Although not even as big as Starbucks’ subsidiary, Seattle’s Best, Gloria Jean’s gourmet coffee can match any of today’s “commercialized” brand of coffee nonetheless.

All along, locals thought Gloria Jean’s was a namesake of the assumed local coffee shop owner perhaps. That’s how it probably didn’t ring a bell on some “out of some star box” level. Gloria Jean’s Coffees is similarly out of the ordinary though, as it likewise brews out-of-the-box nourishing satisfaction.

Gloria Jean’s Coffees somehow percolated its way through, from down under to this mountainous region, where drinking coffee adds to the warmth of its cozy climate. Indeed, like caffeine serving as an upper, Gloria Jean’s is a “climb-mate” not just for those going up to this above-sea-level tourist destination but even among anyone wanting their “snuggly subsistence” fixation to shoot-up.

True enough, this mountain city’s Gloria Jean’s Coffees at Hotel Supreme offer more than hot and cold beverages. It’s likewise an equally competitive and avant-garde option for a coffee shop as a hangout place (other than the usual popular ones) that warms-up good company over cups of stimulating contentment.

The Gloria Jean’s carrot cake we had, just had enough relish of moistness. It compensated for the overwhelming butter icing which was too sweet to my liking. It’ll be a delightful treat though for those with sweet tooth. As sweet as it was, it’ll be a flavorsome complement for Irish coffee which I had. So, it’s all good!

Chocolate cake anyone? Who could resist this? Unless you’re really not into chocolate cakes, you’d sink your fork (err teeth) into this… I mean, “this”. Have you ever ordered something simply by how it looks? Well, this looked like chocolate cake and we had a slice. Not that we didn’t care what’s it called and it may not be the most scrumptiously looking slice of chocolate cake but it is what our eyes feasted on prior to satisfying our “discriminating” sense of taste.

Another favorite is the caramel macchiato which “A” ordered. For some reason (for me at least), the sound (and even the spelling) of macchiato somehow adds up to a coffee shop’s level of sav·oir faire. I mean urbanity; just wanted to use such “sophistication” considering it’s with tastefulness as that of Gloria Jean’s offering macchiato. And that is to point out that macchiato is “stained” coffee, if you get my drift. So by such branding standards, Gloria Jean’s is a chill hangout nook. Thus, it’s not all collecting stickers and planners.

Gloria Jean’s, through whatever glorious means of branding coffee for all its commercial value’s worth, it’s stimulatingly portraying its role of a psychoACTive arouser. Whoa! Not too much caffeine there… Don’t get me wrong. It’s simply because Gloria Jean’s is after all named after an American actress…

And the “Best Activator” goes to…

Hotel Supreme is a ‘convention plaza’ far from its conventional bedrock…

Diamond Grand Ballroom

Hotels in Baguio continue to rise, literally and figuratively that is… The “lodging business” in this tourist destination for a mountain resort thrives, not just in number but likewise in amenity-based indulgence. Other than just a place to sleep-in, it transitioned to a multifunctional sort of a “go-to-place” …an accommodation that accommodates more than forty winks or a trip to dreamland. Thus, staycations make it all the more convenient and relaxing. It provides one’s ‘R and R’ more than enough reason to moreover lounge around. Whereas, it also caters to non-room guests, among its “social media posting-worthy” amenities’ target market.

“A” checking out the view

Gone are the days where hotels, inns, transient houses and what-have-you here in Baguio were limited to a place to crash-in after a day’s tour. Simultaneous with Baguio’s booming tourist economy is the substantial influx of businesses and traders alike, both local and national; mostly akin to the tourism industry. With the economy rising, so are high-rise residences, condominiums, hotel-like “home away from home-branded” transient houses, inns that are ‘in’ for all the economical reasons, etc.

One of Hotel Supreme’s many function rooms

There are also those that have come yet are gone. And there are those that ingeniously stood the test of time. One such landmark, for 30 years (and going), addressed its adaptability through varying times – Hotel Supreme. Amidst the booming hotel industry, Hotel Supreme remained competitive all along these season changes.

A reception for lavish memories

From its humble beginnings, Hotel Supreme has transfigured its accommodating presence time and again. It served to be an avenue for creating memories and paving a way for the realization of aspirations. I remember how Hotel Supreme back then was the hotel of choice for events and occasions; with the Margarita Hall as their flagship function room. Years ago, when Hotel Supreme was yet a one-building establishment pre-expansion, my sister and her then-fiancée aspired for a wedding reception to be held there… Since then, Hotel Supreme continues to adapt to the changing market with more options for its practical and sensible yet deserving clientele. I’ve been a witness to several of my friends’ special union and events taking place here, Hotel Supreme helped in making it happen…

A dip in Baguio, anyone?

Up til now, Hotel Supreme lives up to that commitment to provide a workable way for life’s memorable celebrations to be established with a cost-effective 5-star vibe kind of experience. Comparing it with other bigger and more established, popular high-end hotels, Hotel Supreme can give its competitors a run for their money, not just on cost-efficiency but likewise on package deals commensurate with a more consummate celebration; in addition to the vivid recollection that goes with it in consideration of the impression it’ll project amidst today’s “Instagram-worthy moments” that’ll last til forever.

The same could be said with their room accommodations. Or perhaps, one’s stay at Hotel Supreme could as well be a self-imposed requisite as you’d likely entail yourself to ‘Stay!’ ~ “Sit! Lie down, rollover…” Ok, you get the point as much as you’ll heed that “cue” to just laze around for a rewarding treat.

Our kids enjoying a dip in the tub I’d go for a hot shower instead…

Hotel Supreme offers various lodging/room categories (from apartelle to a single room). And their rooms are not the run-of-the-mill type of bedroom as it comes with some of those “let’s just stay here” sort of provisions for a relatively reasonable rate. Their family room for instance which could comfortably accommodate four is only P3,300 (for an overnight stay which includes free breakfast); that’s fairly less than a thousand for each head. Practical indeed!

Family Room

If one goes hungry, there are several food establishments within the hotel, offering different gastronomic delights. Similarly, these restaurants won’t cost you a fortune but a portion ~ a pleasurable portion that is, of a proportionate foodgasm.

• Lobby Lounge 

Breakfast Buffet

• Gloria Jean’s 

• Future Diner

• Lotus House

One of the best Braised Beef we’ve had so far…

• Ivy’s Grill and Restaurant

Our stay at Hotel Supreme was fulfilling to say the least… it’s highly recommended that you experience it yourself. For all the viable reasons to celebrate life, Hotel Supreme lives up to its service industry-calling and representational supremacy!

In the field of food, quality is an incredibly broad spectrum, and is something which everyone appreciates differently. To one person, the burger found in a normal fast-food joint could be the best meal they’ve ever had. Another, though, could be used to dining in fine restaurants, and would be disgusted by the burger above. There is one thing which most people share in common, though; the desire to improve the quality of their food. To help you to achieve this goal without spending more on your meals, this post will be exploring some cost-saving methods which can see you eating far better food.

Look For Promotions

Since the dawn of the internet, finding a good deal has become easier than ever before. There are loads of websites which are dedicated to helping customers to find good deals when they get to the checkout, and most of these tools are completely free. This enables you to start buying food according to what is on sale. This will make your money go further, enabling you to enjoy higher quality options without having to spend as much money. Of course, though, you will have to invest time into something like this, and this is something which some people won’t be able to afford.

Use The Right Stores

Most cities and towns have more than one options when it comes to the stores on offer, and this gives you an opportunity to save some money. Some companies simply charge less than others for their goods, and one of the ways which they can achieve this is by selling to you in larger quantities. Costco membership deals and packages which can give you access to similar warehouse clubs are great for those who want to make meals which stand out without having to pay restaurant prices. Places like this may have less choice, but the options on offer will be high-tier.

Improve Your Skills

Finally, as the last option to consider, it’s time to think about your kitchen skills. Most people don’t spend much time working to improve this area, even though it is by far the most crucial element of any meal. A good chef can turn the cheapest ingredients into something delicious, and you have more support in this area than ever, giving you the chance to get learning with the click of a couple of buttons. Youtube is one of the best websites for this sort of content. Cooking videos have gained a huge amount of popularity in recent years, and this has lead to huge amounts of content in this area.

With all of this in mind, this post should give you the power to start making better meals for yourself. This part of life is very important, shaping your overall health and making you into the person you want to be. Of course, though, it will always take some work to get the very best you can out of something like this, and you will have to be willing to put a lot of effort in if you want to get results.
