ABC Wednesday | U and V

I lost track of time, so another catch up post for me.

Magnolia Ube Ice Cream

U is for Ube Ice Cream.

Known as purple yam, ube is considered to be one of the most unique ice cream flavor, maybe because it's a root crop (tuber). I admit this isn't my favorite flavor (strawberry is), but two weeks ago, my sister and I were craving so much for Ube Ice Cream, but that specific day, there was no available Ube flavor in the nearby supermarket! Well, I went back to the supermarket last Saturday, I was able to see the freezers (each brand has its own freezer) filled with new stocks! Well, I still want to taste that "Best of the Philippines" Ube Keso (Ube - Cheese) ice cream because it used the purple yam jam from Baguio City, but it was quite expensive, so I will just have to get back next time.

Nestle Ube Ice Cream

That day, I just bought myself a small container (possibly half a cup) of Ube Ice Cream, just to satisfy my cravings. Honestly, I still love Magnolia (the brand), but this one - Nestle, would do for now.

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

V is for Vietnamese Spring Rolls.

I am not much familiar with Vietnamese food, but this platter of Vietnamese Spring Rolls was served by Pho Hoa during the Appetite Magazine "Taste the World" event. Well, I could say I am not totally raving about it the first time I tasted it, but as I eat my second bite-size cut, I got to appreciate its taste. Since it's fresh (the meat inside is cooked, of course), it has a refreshing feeling to the mouth, and the sauce was something that binds all the flavors together.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
