I <3 Chimichangas

I love Chimichangas!

Chimichanga is a treat which originated from Mexico is now loved by almost everyone in my country…the Philippines.

As many restaurants offering Mexican cuisine rise and fall in the food industry, varying approach is still at hand. Yet, the traditional remains best. As I have tried several places like Chilis, Rosie’s Diner (with their famous American portioned Taco salad located in the heart of Malate, Manila), Poquito Mas, Mexicali, even in the Skyline of Vivere Hotel’s roof top, you can have a taste of this famous Taco salad. Did I miss some place? Even in Tacloban City in the Eastern Visayas, there is a Mexican restaurant there offering the same treat – Sombrero. And way back my college days, there’s Tia Maria which later changed its name to “Aunt Marys” or the other way around. I can’t remember anymore.

There is but one place where you can find an authentic, carefully studied and flavourful Mexican treat. Well, maybe not that authentic as I haven’t seen in their menus mentions of jalapenos, but believe me, theirs is the best!

EK’s pork chimis!

From their own version of taco salad, burritos and chimichangas, making use of home – made tortillas. It is one of the best in the country (so far)!  Just the scent of fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro and some secret herbs and spices, you can’t help but crave for more. Their sublimely delicious pork chimichanga is by the way my own personal favorite! Yummy! They actually come in three variants – chicken, pork and beef. Originally, I kept ordering the beef flavor, then, a close friend cum little sister at work (Mia), asked me to try the pork variant. I loved it since then.

I waited for the queue to clear up so It's my turn! 2 servings of pork chimis please! (--,)

I heard they are also coming up with other Mexican varieties and I couldn’t wait to be the first to try.

So guess where you can find these truly delighting Mexican treat? At the Food court of the country’s one and only theme park – Enchanted Kingdom!

Try it to believe it! And don’t dare to leave the park without trying it. And not because I was once Section Head for Retail Operations of this popular park where the cliche “Love your own” can be applied by anyone, or I’m being paid to do this? Nooo! I swear, I’m not! It’s just the innate attitude of us to worthily share whatever is good and the pride and validation from people who took my word for it. It’s just one of the park’s treat to their guests! Happy eating!

PS – Try the “Tacones” too! It’s a truly unique treat!

Happy anniversary EK! =)

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
