It’s not too late to celebrate Buwan ng Wika!


We’re more than halfway through Buwan ng Wika, so for this week’s edition of In Case You Missed It, we’ve rounded up three eats that your Pinoy taste buds will truly appreciate. From  new blends that will give you a taste of the Philippines to a blooming homegrown shop, these amazing fares may be diverse, but will knock you off your feet all the same.

1. Aperitif finally opens their first physical store

You can now find Aperitif in a store near you

Aperitif is a local food business started by sisters Karla and Kim Zulueta. They first introduced The Graze Box and Grazing Table in August 2016, but since then, their offerings have grown rapidly. Fulfilling their dream of having Filipinos enjoy their products while shopping or enjoying a movie, they finally opened their first physical store in SM Aura. Here, you can find their best-selling Graze Boxes in handy Graze Cones for under Php500. Besides their classic products, you can even enjoy their Gelato Fleurs – a first in the country. Their gelatos are shaped into flowers right in front of you and are made fresh everyday with premium ingredients from Italy.  You better not be the last one to try this out.

Aperitif is located at 4/F SM Aura, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

2. CBTL will take you to Paradise with their new tea

Go crazy for CBTL’s newest offerings

Metro Manila may be flooded the past few days due to the storm, but you can still have a taste of tropical vibes with CBTL’s Paradise Blend. Made by international tea master, David De Candia, this limited edition tea is a blend of Philippine tropical fruits and rooibos tea to give you that warm feeling of being in an island. It’s available in CBTL branches as hot or iced tea, and even comes in a retail tin can. You can surely feel at home with CBTL’s Paradise Blend. If you’re not too keen on tea however, you can go for their new Salted Caramel flavor which you can get as hot, iced, or ice blended.

CBTL has various branches around the Philippines
