Cebu's first hot wings, Gibb's Hot Wings has something new to their plate for their avid diners. I have blogged about this restaurant a couple of months ago (pls. check here). And right now, they came up with a new addition to their menu. To crack the big news, they will be opening their 3rd branch in Robinsons Galleria, Cebu. How is that? If you live down south, that's an easy access in search of hot wings! I'm envious!

Recently, I got the privilege to taste some delightful fluffy and full cakes from Grain Restaurant in Diamond Suites.

I forgot my name not just seconds but minutes when I nifty-forked slices of cake one piece at a time. Of course, I asked for tea served at an instant as these divine delectable treats are best paired with it.
