A couple of weeks ago I happened to be at EDSA Shangri-La Mall for a meetup with total strangers (a long story, I might tell you more about it later on) when I passed this cool and colorful display of frozen yogurt.
I could not resist the strawberry swirls of this concoction cradled in a waffle cone.
BTIC (Better Than Ice Cream) has been around for maybe ten years or more, and was the first brand of frozen yogurt to hit these archipelagic shores. While my favorite flavor has always been the chunky Mint n’ Chips, the others are a delight to savor. You must try them all.
Later that afternoon, I took my daughters to Rockwell, our “home mall”, chosen to be so because it is quiet and small and intimate and has my favorite shops.
Kenny Rogers Roasters is one of them. The food is healthy (mostly grilled, reduced oil) and delicious. It recently underwent a makeover and now rocks an upscale vibe.
BTIC and “Kenny” are simple chain eateries, yet all the more deserving of notice because they quietly serve flavor-filled dishes that are healthier than fast food – burgers, fries, and the rest of the grease brigade – and are a good alternative choice.
