For the foodie who practices abstinence during Lent but still wishes to eat well and eat healthily, Flavors Restaurant of Holiday Inn & Suites Makati has brought back its popular Poke bowls.
The all-out-craze for Poke, a beloved Hawaiian staple traditionally made with diced raw fish and toppings such as seaweeds and nuts, began about four years ago with restaurants and pop-up stores all offering the delicious, healthy dish.
Poke has definitely gone mainstream, and at Flavors, guests are spoiled for choice with the freshest salmon and tuna slices as well as summer vegetables and even mangoes for a sweet surprise. You can also choose between white or brown rice.
For sauces, the spicy Korean and Ponzu work best for me. The Sriracha mayo also goes well with salmon.
The Poke Bowl buffet is offered on weekends until April 21 for just P800 nett, with an option to enjoy the full lunch or dinner buffet for P1,825 nett.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for Filipinos, and there’s nothing like your favorite viand with an egg done the way you like it to partner with a cup of white or garlic rice. But with wellness as the new buzzword, there’s always a need to look for healthy yet quick alternative to the staple meal to kickstart your day.
Quaker Oats introduces a new way to make your breakfast even more super with its Oatsilog recipes that will give you all the nutrients you need to power through your day.
Silog enthusiasts can easily replace the traditional grain with a cup of oats and an egg or two. Beat one to two eggs with milk and oats, and add your favorite toppings—anything from sardines or corned beef, to chicken and mushroom. And whether you choose to prepare Quaker Oats in a pan or to microwave these in a mug, you’re sure to get your meal in just a few minutes.
