Little Mexico

Seems like around-the-corner small businesses are booming in the city! I blogged about a burger stall in Annalyn Subd here.)

Now, let's try another subdivision-located food house: Little Mexico (FB page here)!

The tarp, but due to Glenda, it became a table top
 Located at #17 De Joya Compound, Alangilan, Batangas City, it became a favorite hangout place of BSU Alangilan students (and teachers, too).

Inside the gate

I love these babies
They are known for their Cholo burger (P189), but because it's quite expensive, we (my cousin, my nephew and I) ordered quesadillas (P99) and Mexican pizza (P169).
The menu. For clearer photo, click here.

Because there are many customers and I believe they only have one cook, my nephew and I played first.

The owner noticed that there's a little kid in his food house of spicy things, so he made sure that our food isn't spicy. 
He also promised to give him a chocolate, which he did after we ate! Thoughtful!
With the menu.
 After about 40 minutes, the food was served!
Quesadillas (P99)
It comes with this condiments. I love the green ones! 
 It was the cheapest quesadillas I've tried, but it's the most sulit (worth the cost). I would buy this over the more expensive ones, especially because of its condiments. Plus, the cheesiness is not strong to the taste that I can eat n slices without getting umay (no english term acc. to google).

Mexican Pizza (P169)
Then came the Mexican pizza minutes after. It was overwhelming due to having eaten about 3 slices of quesadillas. Also, I think it would be better if they let the pizza be extra spicy, but then it was our fault, so maybe I should try to go there without a kid next time. :D

Loot Bag of Goodness: Chooga Chooga Fruit Drink, Asahi Sardines, and more

Hello there! I have a distributor friend, and she gave me a loot bag of the goods that she handles!

Inside the bag


The products are being distributed around CALABARZON supermarkets and sari-sari stores.

Amigo Segurado paghetti, Amigo Spaghetti Sauce - Italian and Pinoy Style, Asahi Sardines, Golden Oats, and Chooga

These brands are relatively cheaper than their competitors, but with comparable goodness.


Amigo Segurado Spaghetti: Buy Pinoy!
I cooked the pasta al dente. Note: I added oil to the boling water to avoid clumping. I also added salt and pepper to add a little taste.

Sweet Blend and Italian Style

Buy Pinoy: Save Jobs

Cooked spag for my friends using both sauce (250g of spag each sauce) - they love it! I like the Italian style more because I don't like my spag sweet, but it's just me. :) 


I checked one market and it's the cheapest sardines there. For only P13.50, you can have a lycopene-fortified viand! 
Asahi Sardines (FB page here)
I love the hot one especially. :) 


Nutrition facts: always good to know

Does punching a straw to your tetra pack take time? Well, here's a treat for you: Chooga in Wise Pack!

Just tear to open!
It's easy to hold too, with that sexy and tall packaging.

The kids love them!

You can buy one for just P7! 

These Golden Oats are perfect for breakfast for only P11! 

When I have one, I enjoyed it with one banana and a cup of coffee. It's enough to keep me going until lunch! 
It comes in 6 flavors, and with different vitamins and minerals! Check them all here.

Check them all in your favorite supermarket! 
I especially recommend the Chooga drinks. :)
Thanks again, friend, for all of these!
