Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf makes Everyday Extraordinary

#EverydayExtraordinary

#EverydayExtraordinary

We all want lives that are filled with extraordinary experiences, but the reality is that most of the time life itself gets in the way. Work, errands, traffic, monetary issues, and other mundane details all seem to conspire to make more of our days tedious, unexceptional and often downright dreary.

At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, we believe that extraordinary should be neither elusive nor inaccessible. It doesn’t have to be back packing in the French countryside or scuba diving in El Nido. A great book or movie can be extraordinary, so can a stimulating conversation with an old friend, and who doesn’t love a great meal?

Certainly a meal in a restaurant with a tasteful, cozy ambiance and great customer service can be extraordinary too, especially if the dish is something different from anything out there, and all the more extraordinary for its distinctness. Throw in the most ideally-suited wine, a sinfully delicious desert, and a world-renowned cup of coffee, and you have not only a difficult-to-forget experience, but one that you’ll want to repeat as often as possible. Such an experience is what they aim to deliver at the 26th St. Bistro by The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®.

26th St. Bistro is the essence of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® expressed as a unique dining and restaurant concept. More than just everyday meals, they create and serve full-course cuisine that’s delightfully different and distinctively delicious, made with same passion for quality and handcraftsmanship they put into our coffees and teas. From their signature menu items and world-famous brews, to their distinctive dining concept and customer service, they always want their customers to feel that they have enjoyed something unique and special – in a word, EXTRAORDINARY.

Much like how The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® redefined our expectations of the café, 26th St. Bistro elevates the casual dining concept by serving up a gustatory experience you don’t normally get in a comfortable, cozy, everyday atmosphere.

Anyway, curious about the CBTL Logo? as we go on talking I learned (Thank you so much Jaybee Chun and JV Roman for sharing) that the bean on top is the representation that in every coffee bean harvest, they only get the top 1% of the same size and shape of Pure Arabica beans  (which means it’s the best of the best kind) and the leaves under is the top two tea leaves and a bud ( take note, the most flavorful) that they’ll get from every set, which means you get the best of the best in a cup of CBTL Signature!

Its always worth the price, the taste and everything when you know the history of you are drinking or eating. Its like knowing and experiencing their culture.

I swear all of them are so good  and now my favorites , and before I forgot, I discovered their Anniversary Blend Tea, (make it Latte and you will love it more! ) Its a must try! As in!  thanks to the beautiful ladies Jaybee and JV for the reco.

It was one extraordinary night for us and I assure you that CBTL will make your #EverydayExtraordinary too.

XOXO,

PUB Burrito by Chefreneur Kia

PUBburrito at mercatoDSC_0144 fashionAtetheLawyer

PUB Burrito (Pinoy’s Ultimate and Bestselling Burrito) is a business in the making. It has been conceptualized to further share to the market a different kind of burrito experience with a Pinoy twist. For those who have tried the dishes, PUB Burritwo is all about our two-way burritos.

I tell you, its worth more than your 70 or 80 pesos or your money back! :)

I tell you, its worth more than your 70 or 80 pesos or your money back! 🙂

Instead of the usual one filling, we are introducing a half-half filling concept. In this way, the customers will be able to enjoy the best flavors of both worlds. Aside from the two-way idea, the burrito filling will deviate from the normal rice and protein combination. Instead, we are substituting the rice with vegetables and some crispy treat. In this way, the satiety value of the food will be heavy enough but will lean more on the healthy side.

Its so amazing how these simple ingredients makes a whole lot more difference to the taste when its combined.

I tried to mix the Beef and the Chicken, 2 contrasting flavors to satisfy my adventurous tongue.  It was good neither of the two over powered each, you can taste the beef on the other end and chicken on the other.

It was a good food tripping night at Mercato, Fort.

An attempt to make comfort food more interesting, PUB Burrito allows you to have your burrito your favorite way.

Catch their PUB Burrito Booth every Friday and Saturday at Mercato. And feel the difference of Pinoy Burrito. 🙂

General x Mini Cooper NOT NORMAL Campaign

General x Mini CooperIMG_4120 fashionAtetheLawyer

Taking a Detour

By habit of idealization, a man is appreciated only in his extremes: once at the peak of youth, jocular and full of pep, and once more in his silver years, reverential and wise. But what occurs between these hallmarks— the long and winding transit years– gives us a ture-to-life perspective of the versatility that makes the General man.

General x Mini CooperIMG_4159 fashionAtetheLawyer

Timed with the abruft passing of seasons, this looks at the unpredictability of male trends and how General reins in that quality with finesse. The Curatorship program also takes a curious turn as they proudly welcome the British carmaker Mini to the gentlemen’s table.

Mini lends its inventive spirit to coax out the General man’s dynamic lifestyle. Both names find kinship in their pursuit of heightening the senses- seen in their combined admiration for the volatile disposition of the young, tempered against the anvil of good taste.

This collaboration also makes room for MINI’s lifestyle items in the store. Short of raising Union Jack and adopting a Cockney accent, the influences of the Curatorship add a decidedly British flavor to the General’s menswear collection with apparel, bags, and accessories. Visit the store located at Bonifacio High Street and Robinson’s Magnolia and risk a bit of NOT NORMAL into your style.

Me, as guy tried the Dream Liquid Mousse and it was good, choosing your own skin tone (Im a Natural Beige) I must say you can really compare it to the effect of airbrush make up. Thanks to my BFF Ailene Co, for the few tips on make up.

Try it and I assure you good result if not comment on my post. 🙂
