Trying Out Chef’s Noodles Bibimbap

food musings, foodie adventures, korean food, dining out

I have always raved about Korean cuisine ever since I had the chance to dine in one of those hole-in-the-wall Korean carinderia in Makati many years ago. That is why I have been eyeing the Chef’s Noodles branch at the local mall but we never really get to try it there. Good thing we finally managed to visit a few weeks back and got to taste their bibimbap. This dish is a traditional Korean dish and literally translates to “mixed rice.” Simply put, it is a bowl of warm rice topped with different ingredients, including beef, seafood, eggs and vegetables. I am a big fan of rice topping so I was really looking forward to trying this dish out.

My Hello5 Vietnam Premium Coffee Gift Set

Coffee is one of my passions. There are just times when I simply cannot jumpstart a day without having my obligatory first cup of the day. There are also times when I consume about 4 cups in a single day! I know it was rather unhealthy to be gulping on one too many cups of coffee, but sometimes I simply cannot help it and somehow I find it a very effective cure for headaches, especially those that I can no longer stand. I guess you can safely say that I am a coffeeholic. But don’t you worry, I find ways to curb on the consumption when it is absolutely necessary! 🙂

That being said, I am sure you can now imagine how wonderful I felt when I found out I won a Premium Vietnam Coffee Gift Set from The Peach Kitchen. Now, although I am such a prodigious coffee drinker, I am not what you might consider a connoisseur and I have yet to try a wider variety of coffee. Although I have not experienced Vietnamese coffee, I was excited merely at the sight of my lovely giveaway prize! The gift set came in this lovely box which I cannot wait to open.

My prize is comprised of a big bag of Hello5 premium coffee from Vietnam, and this coffee filter. It also comes with an instruction on how to prepare the coffee. I was supposed to put the coffee onto the filter and pour a little amount of water in it and let it sit for a bit. Afterwards, I was to put a sufficient amount of hot water, just about right to fill my coffee cup.

I have yet to prepare a cup and I am betting it will be a perfect companion while I burn the midnight lamp to read more about these cool Fenders. I will make sure to update you about the experience. In the meantime, shouts go out to the Peach Kitchen for this yummy treat! ^_^
