Mr. Delicious Ready Made Meals

The Try Local PH Team was recently invited to an intimate lunch to learn more about the ready made meals of Mister Delicious PH.

Almost everything on our menu was simply heated in boiling water for 10 minutes giving you an instant hearty meal on a busy day. A big thank you to Jeremy and Jenn Slagle and Chichi Tulao of Happy Tummy Travels for inviting us.

On the menu were

• Soy vegan carnitas

• Pork carnitas

• Ham hock minestrone

• Green salad with Japanese tomatoes and hazelnut oil dressing (not part of the ready made meals, but a great idea of a side that can easily be made at home)

• Smoked ham hock fabada

• Beef brisket caldereta

• Chicken paella

After 2 years of intensive R&D, these ready made packs can be ordered online and delivered on the same business day if ordered before 4pm.  They can stay in the freezer happily for 6 months. Order yours at


Local Find: Hima PH

I’ve been a fan of Himalayan Salt Lamps for years, but it isn’t also easy to find a reliable seller. Fortunately, you no longer have to worry because Hima PH is here to make sure all your Himalayan salt wishes come true. Aside from salt lamps they also carry a number of other Himalayan Salt products. Check them out below:

Salt blocks (which are great for steaks)

Coarse with lavender + coconut oil for a healthy body scrub.

Fine and coarse cooking salts in packs or in grinders for the perfect seasoning.

Discovery Country Suites: Your Cozy Home in Tagaytay

If there’s one hotel group my family genuinely loves, it’s the Discovery group! We have stayed in Discovery Primea and Club Paradise a number of times and really appreciate the detail and thoughtfulness of the entire Discovery team.

For my birthday, we decided to spend a night at Discovery Country Suites in Tagaytay and we really had a wonderful time. This little bed and breakfast can house 25 people comfortably and feels as cozy as someone’s mountain home. The amenities and rooms are super comfortable. Here are some pictures, we stayed at the Siam Suite.

And if there is one area that the Discovery group is consistently amazing at, it is the quality of food they deliver in ALL their hotels. Check out all the delicious meals we had below.
