Ham All You Can! Yes, You Can!

ham all you can

We started the holiday season a little early. Introducing our Ham All You Can, featuring our own specially brined Swiss Glazed Holiday Ham. Marinated for weeks for flavor and juiciness, then finished off with a sugar-glaze for that yummy, crackling crunch.

You can also order our ham for your own festivities! Just let us know when. We have both bone-in and boneless.

Ham All You Can is offered in both Makati and Paco branches, for lunch and dinner only. Call 8188251 (Makati) or 5213002 (Paco) for reservations or inquiries.

Grilled Cheese Redux

Grilled cheese sandwiches are classic childhood favorites. It’s easy to love a sandwich oozing with creamy cheese, embraced by crunchy bread. Here are some characteristics of a GREAT grilled cheese sandwich.

1. You can really use any kind of cheese, but make sure that the cheese is grated, instead of sliced. This ensures that the cheese melts to the gooeyness that people look for in a grilled cheese sandwich. If the cheese is just sliced, it takes longer to melt, plus either end up too thick or too thin.

2. Crusty bread. Yes, you can use any kind of bread, but we like using our very own whole wheat bread, for that extra “nutty” flavor. We also like to slice our bread JUST right: too much and you end up not tasting the cheese. Too little and the cheese has support and just becomes a gooey mess (but then again, what’s wrong with that?).

3. Buttered on the outside, with a tinge of charring. The proper way to make a grilled cheese sandwich is to butter your bread ON THE OUTSIDE, and then putting it on the hot pan/grill. This way, the first flavor that hits your taste-buds is the richness of the butter, getting them ready for the play of textures that will follow: the crunch of the bread coupled with the soft, “ooziness” of the cheese.

It’s easy to make your own, but if you want to try ours, we have 3 kinds to choose from: triple-cheese spiced with paprika, honey and basil combo, and cheese and tomatoes (like our Walliser Fondue!!).
