Tuscany Mckinley Hill B&T

I was already getting stuffed an we weren’t even half way! I was so excited to try everything! So from the Jews to the Italians, we then move on over to the Mexicans at B & T Mexican Kitchen (Burritos and Tacos Mexican Kitchen). The owners were very lovely people and really welcomed each of us to their little Mexican Kitchen. When asked, Dr. Tan (owner) shares that their kids live in California where Mexican food is rampant. They fell in love with it and decided to bring the concept to the Philippines.

I’m not sure which among these dishes I liked the most because I just really loved them all. I’m usually not a fan of mexian food because I find the taste to be bland and boring, however, B&T changed my view of Mexican dishes forever. The pizza was unique and not something I could taste everyday. It was filled with delicious toppings and complimented by its thin crust. The Habanero Chicken on the other hand was very flavorful. It didn’t taste oily at all. The taquitos, was jam-packed with beef, adobo and chicken that the taste was just so powerful and good!

An Awesome Secret Foodies Tour: Main Dish 1 by Sauceria

What you will try:

-Artisinal All Beef Burger – artisinal beef with tuyo blue cheese spread in a Furikaki bun

-Feta Cilantro Tomato Cocas – Spanish-style pizza based on Sauceria pizza line

Sauceria comes from the word sauce. Here at sauceria, they make all their sauces from scratch. This way, their sauces don’t only taste better, but it comes out healthier too. In fact, they grow some of their ingredients such as rosemary, thyme and mint in their main branch along Boni Serrano Ave. Though the owners admit that they also buy other ingredients, they make sure to check the label properly. If there is something on the label that they are unfamiliar with, they will opt to not use it and instead make their own.  The owner doesn’t only care that you eat good food, he cares that you eat healthy too.

I personally loved their steak! The meat was tender and cooked to perfection! I’m sure I’ll be going back to Marciano’s for this!

An Awesome Secret Foodies Tour: Main Dish 3 and Dessert by Main Street

What you will try:

-Poutine – thick-cut fries served with beef gravy and cheese curds

-Wagyu Burger – Kitayama beef in sesame bun and served with tomato relish, cheddar cheese and house sauce

-Organic Maple and Candied Bacon Artisan Ice Cream – candied bacon on vanilla maple base


Then Canadian-based restaurateur, Adam Tacderas-Tan, enjoyed spending his afternoons on Main Street in Vancouver. Immersing himself in the French-Canadian hybrid of culinary delights, he has come to create a soft-spot for this strip’s cuisine. Main Street is  the first Canadian restaurant in Manila and the food was absolutely divine. Poutine is actually a Canadian national dish which uses french fries as its main ingredient. I never thought a cheese and gravy mixture would taste so good!

The Wagyu burger was also another favorite as the meat Chef Adam uses was compact and had little fat to add to the texture. The perfect patty in my book! The burger was also BIG, so unless you have a huge appetite, Main Street’s burger is good for sharing.

The Maple and Candied Bacon ice cream from Main Street on the other hand was one of a kind! At first, it was a bit weird… mostly because you don’t often taste bacon in your ice cream. But somehow, it’s uniqueness made it all the more tastier. The maple syrup reminded me of pancakes, combining that with the bacon made it feel like a breakfast dessert explosion in my mouth! Definitely something you all have to try – especially if you love bacon.
