What apps can I use for food and grocery delivery?

Did you know that there are grocery apps already that can deliver not only groceries, but wine, cupcakes, rice, even Wagyu Beef? MetroMart and Honestbee apps are life savers! You can schedule delivery – both date and time, you can pay via cash or credit card. You need to choose your area, as they not cater to all areas, but they definitely deliver in Taguig.

I found it very useful when you have rice and fresh milk delivered (since they’re heavy), last minute missing grocery ingredient while cooking, or emergency wine and cheese for impromptu guests visiting, and they would deliver it right to your doorstep. Also for items that are not within the area like Kitayama Wagyu Beef (which is located in Chino Roces Ave., Makati), no need to drive all the way to Makati for your steak fix!

MetroMart App

MetroMart App Delivery Charge is FREE when you reach P1,000 minimum, they have Shopping Fee (P80.00) and Delivery Fee if you don’t.

Honestbee App

Honestbee App Delivery Charge is FREE when you reach P1,500 minimum (but they would have free deliver promos from time to time), they have a fixed Concierge fee (P99.00).

I have used both and I’m satisfied with the service, MetroMart used to deliver SM Groceries, but it’s not part of the stores they cater to, so I now use Honestbee for Robinsons Selections.

Note: You can also access their services via Web

Where to eat affordable Chinese dimsum?

If you’re craving for Chinese dimsum, don’t want to eat in a sit-down restaurant, plus you want it cheap and fast (well it takes around 10 minutes), the restaurant to go to is Yumchee! For P85 per order, you can pick from these on the menu:

Iced Oolong is really good

Love these: Shrimp Dumpling (P85) + Cua Pao (P85) and their Iced Oolong!

Where: Ground Floor, Bonifacio Stopover,  31st St. cor Rizal Drive, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

Where to eat (Fil) Mexican food?

We used to really love Orale (Orale Taqueria Mexicana in The Fort Strip), which unfortunately permanently closed, and we have recently discovered Gorda! Gorda is Filipino-Mexican food which is located in Uptown, BGC. Enter that nondescript door, and you’ll be surprised to find this hip looking restaurant. Those brick walls have really become a default these days. Note, it’s Fil-Mex, but it works!

Love these: Chicken Burrito (P300), ask them to serve it in a bowl instead of the usual wrap + Pork a La Parilla (P500), 2 pieces of grilled pork chops with kapeng barako demi glace

Where: 2nd Floor Uptown Parade, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

 

Where to buy good Hummus?

Home made Hummus

I love Hummus! When Halal Guys opened in BGC (G/F Fully Booked building), I get my dose of Hummus there, then I just get extra Pita bread in the grocery. I discovered this home-made Hummus in a Facebook group, and it’s really (really) good. Warning, it has a spicy kick!

Cost: P250 for the Hummus and P100 for 10 pieces of Pita bread

Where: Condo pick up in BGC (please inquire with the seller)

First of July

BGC Organic Market haul last 29-April in the photo – Reishi Mushroom Ale, basil microgreens, Go Zero reusable straws

First of July for my first post on the site – now what lead me to creating this blog/site? Apart from the fact that I miss blogging and writing, and back in high school I self studied HTML codes (skills long forgotten), I have always resorted to Google to answer my random questions, where can I buy this in Fort? We don’t have weekend plans, what is happening this weekend in BGC? I want to bake a cake, where do I buy this ingredient near our place? Where can I find taho? 99% of the time, I cannot find any answers to my questions. This might be a very niche and a small market of readers, but I hope this helps! I initially wanted to get Fort finds dot com but for the name recall, resorted to BGC finds dot com. Let’s see how this goes!
