Burger King has always been popular for their great tasting burgers which truly are notches-higher than other fast food burgers here in the Philippines. The international burger chain BURGER KING® was founded in 1954. Today they operate in more than 13,000 locations in 89 countries and they serve more than 11 million guests every day. In the Philippines, the WHOPPER® has taken the appetite of picky Filipino taste buds but there are more to watch out from the home of the original Flame-Grilled Beef Burgers – the BK Stacks Burgers.
BK Stacks are made-to-order burger that allows anybody to choose from 1, 2, 3 or 4 flame-grilled patties for their Burgers. What make these burgers even more mouthwatering are the melted American cheeses in between the patties, crispy bacon garnishing on top and a generous smothering of the BK Stacks sauces all in between a pair of toasted sesame-seed bun. Single stack is called “Dude,” double stacks are known as the “Boss,” a triple stack makes you the “Chief” and of course, quad stack BK Stack Burgers are made for the “King.”read more
Wine experts say that food and wine pairing is a matter of personal taste. As we all know the old rule of the thumb is to match up white wine with white meat while red wine goes well with red meat, yet these days, you can bypass the old rule as you can select and enjoy the right wine to pair with a variety of meat, fish, poultry as well as with cheese, chocolates and other desserts. To achieve the best match it is important to balance and harmonize the flavors of the food and the wine so neither of the two will overpower the other. It is just like referring the wine as a sauce that can complement the food. So if the combination pleases you then it is the right choice for you.
Below are basic guides for beginners in food and wine pairing.
Serve Cabernet with a fatty Prime Rib. The fat of the meat will balance the bitter taste or the tannin of the wine, thus will bring a smoother feel when combined.
Choose Barolo, Sauvignon Blanc or Chianti if you are serving any pasta dish with tomato sauce to savor the citrus flavor of the food. Keep in mind that acidic wine can increase the acid taste of your dish. So, sour foods complements with sour wine.read more

There are various Filipino dishes which had been influenced by the Chinese cuisine and one of them is Lechon Macau. Lechon Macau is oven-baked pork belly, an alternative to the classic all time favorite lechon or whole roasted pig in most occasions. Because it is oven-roasted it has a moist meat and crunchy skin.
If you wonder why this dish is so crispy, the key is to prick the skin with fork before oven baking. One more thing, the combination of the Chinese five spice powder, pepper and salt rubbed on the pork gives its rich and palatable flavor.read more
