Pizzarella CDO Opens New Branch in Corrales

Pizzarella, Iligan’s best pizza-makers and home of the famous Madcow, opened their newest branch at Corrales St., Cagayan de Oro on May 26, 2017.

Owned by the Portado family, Pizzarella opened their business in 2012 at the heart of Iligan City. It provides diners with finely crafted pizzas, using the freshest ingredients from able local vendors. The ambience of their place is rustic-inspired yet with contemporary cozy sensitivity.

Their savory pizzas are actually inspired by Italian and Filipino recipes as well as their own kitchen recipes. To know more about their pizzas, please see below some pictures I took during their soft opening:

Deliciouso and healthy, too!

Their Chicago Deep Dish Pizza SPINTO is my new favorite. So Yummy!

Buon Giorno!

To date, Pizzarella have 4 stores opened, 2 in Iligan City and 2 stores in Cagayan de Oro. And they wish to open more in the near future.

Visit the place now and experience their mouthwatering pizza products! I’m sure you will keep coming back for more!

Newly-Opened Kitchen Classics in CDO

IMG_3962

There’s a newly-opened restaurant in Cagayan de Oro and it is located at 6th-17th st., Nazareth Subdivision. Kitchen Classics had its soft opening last July 28, 2016 and for only P199, you will enjoy their eat-all-you-can Filipino dishes.

We were invited by Kitchen Classics for their Thanksgiving dinner the night before their soft opening. Food served were Beef Calderetta, Grilled Pork, Chicken, Shanghai rolls, Pancit Malabon and more.

When you dine at this place, it will give you a ‘homey feeling’. The place was actually a residential house before it was turned into a restaurant.

Kitchen Classics is a family-owned business. It is ran mostly by the Bautista’s. This concept was planned a few years ago and they were thankful that finally, it became a reality.

If you want to dine at this place, they are open from 10:30 am-2:00 pm and 6:00pm-9:00pm from Tuesdays to Sundays. They are closed on Mondays.

Below were some of the pics I took during their Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you for inviting us and congratulations on your newly-opened restaurant!

Choobi Choobi Grand Launching at Limketkai

Choobi Choobi photo IMG_2654_zps7ontybp7.jpgLast May 1, 2016, Choobi Choobi officially launched their newest branch at Limketkai Center, Cagayan de Oro City. The store originally opened its first branch in Cebu on July2013. Currently, the store has 16 branches nationwide and still continues growing.

Choobi Choobi’s tag line is “Lingaw Lingaw Kaon!”, a Visayan word for Enjoy, Enjoy Eating! To give a brief background of this store, it is a family oriented casual dining restaurant. Although some thought that this is a Korean establishment because of how the name sounded, the restaurant actually offered Filipino Food Comfort. Their house specialties are mostly shrimps, and there are also squid, shellfish, fish, lobster, giant bamboo clam and baby lobster.

For the not so seafood-lover, you can order their Choobi crispy pata, Fried manok, crispy adobong kanding, fried herbed spring duck, belly dance, sizzling boneless bangus and many more. Try to check their food posted below so that you know what to order when you are planning to visit the restaurant.

Choobi Choobi’s grand opening at LLKS was attended by their new brand ambassador, Kapamilya actress Erich Gonzales. Fans flocked at the mall’s rotunda to get a glimpse of her and fortunately for some, they got to dine with Erich at the store located at the 2nd floor of the mall.

Q & A with the Media

Local Medias were invited to grace the event and as a member of CDO Bloggers, I got the chance to see and interview Ms. Erich up close and personal. She entertained all questions thrown at her on why she chose to endorse the said restaurant. Being a seafood-lover, she did not hesitate to accept Choobi Choobi’s invitation to be their brand ambassador.
