Cucina Higala – Modern Filipino & Heritage Cuisine

Cucina Higala – Good friends, great food, is the newest modern Filipino and heritage cuisine restaurant open in Cagayan de Oro City that offers its own awesomeness.

I had the privilege of being invited to the pre-opening of Cucina Higala. Owners Jan and Maggie Uy of  8 year old TFC Group, imparted their wonderful vision and mission for this restaurant during the pre-opening event. We can’t deny the fact that Kagay-anon‘s love to eat and this is what they thought too. Big and small restaurants are everywhere. Even street foods and homemade meals are awesome! But with all these many food choices available in the city, they wanted to give us something different, something unique, something memorable. They wanted to serve food that takes you back to your roots. Read More


Brownie Bites – nothing but goodness!

When I heard about Brownie Bites, I was seriously wondering what was with this brownie that it turned into a craze. I just had to look for the source and try it for myself. From then on, I and my kids got hooked instantly! You know that feeling when you pop open Pringles and you can’t stop digging in? hahaha! That’s exactly how we felt for these oh so yummy bites.

Brownie Bites - Bite Me Up - Dark and Fudgy


What I love about this bite-sized fudgy brownies is the freshly baked brownie crunch and the dark chocolaty fudgy taste and feel in the mouth. It consists of nothing but goodness! Perfect pair for coffee. Shout out to the coffee lovers out there!
