The first of March marks the beginning of beach bum season. As the temperature rises, so is the news for our fellow gourmands. Don’t forget to check out these three food fares, which are guaranteed to be hotter than the upcoming summer.

1. Nespresso’s new flavors honor its roots

Coffee aficionados will be able to take a look into the history of their beloved drink with Nespresso Philippines’ new limited edition flavors – Cafe Istanbul and Cafe Venezia. Both of these were inspired by the world’s ancient coffee houses in Istanbul and Venice, where it was believed the coffee industry first thrived. The former is described as intense and spicy while the latter contains hints of flowers. Go ahead and try both of them. One sip from these flavors will take you back in time and make you appreciate the long history of coffee.

Nespresso is located at R1 Level Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City

 If you’ve been to SM Aura lately, you might have noticed that their Food Hall just got bigger and better. The relaunched version offers a premium dining experience and a well-curated selection of cuisines from appetizers to desserts. If you’re craving for seafood, Hook by Todd English will keep you satisfied. If you’re a burger lover, Pound is your best bet. For dessert, you shouldn’t miss on the OMG Lava Cake. These are only a few of their mouthwatering dishes so head on over.

SM Aura’s Food Hall is located at Level 5, Sky Park, SM Aura, Taguig City

One rule Filipino kids grew up knowing is that you never peel the paper off a White Rabbit candy bar. If you’re missing this childhood snack, then prepare to drool. Wanderlust Creamery teamed up with Foodbeast to create a White Rabbit Ice Cream. It even comes with its classic white and red wrapper! Talk about giving attention to the smallest details. Unfortunately, this flavor is only available in Los Angeles but we’re hoping for the best. Raise your hands if you want them to bring it here in The Philippines!
