Naturally grown and ripened under the Australian sunshine with a sweet burst of flavour and juicy pulp, the new season of fresh Australian Table Grapes are now available for Filipinos to enjoy today.

From April, the 2020 season varieties will be available at different stores and partners like Rustans Supermarket, Shopwise, Marketplace by Rustans, RobinsonsSupermarket, S&R, SM, and even thru e-Commerce partners like Baytownsproduce, Crate2plate and Dizon Farms, which includes Tam’s Gold and Crimson Seedless as well as Sweet Sapphire (a long finger shaped black grape), Autumn Crisp (a very sweet and crispy grape) and Cotton Candy (a sweet, aromatic green grape). These varieties are known for their extra sweet taste making them a delicious snack the whole family can enjoy.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Australian Table Grape farmers and food safety inspectors reassured all fruit is grown using the highest food safety standards and most advanced growing techniques, ensuring all produce leaving the farm is of the highest quality and safe for consumption.

Each variety of grape is extremely versatile in its taste – they can be deliciously enjoyed on their own and best enjoyed whole - as well as able to be added to a range of dishes. Considered nature’s candy, Australian Table Grapes are a versatile snack or sweet and crisp addition to any recipe, making them the ideal fresh fruit for all.

Furthermore, the nutritional value that Table Grapes hold make them fantastic for maintaining a healthy diet for people of all ages.

Red Globe table grapes have a low Glycemic Index (GI) value and 5g of gut-healthy fibre in every serving. Meanwhile, the Thompson Seedless variety is packed with vitamin C which is perfect for giving your immune system a boost.

The horticulture industry in Australia prides itself on the idyllic growing conditions Australia is famous for - warm, dry summers, and deep, rich soils provide the perfect environment for Australian growers to produce world class table grapes.

Every grape grown by Australian Table Grape farmers is from an established second or third generation family-owned farm located in pristine rural Australia. The techniques, knowledge and passion for growing and carefully selecting the grapes has been perfected over many years and passed down through the generations of families. Using this expertise, these farmers are proud to work hard producing more than 240,000 tons of the best quality fruit from their farms and exporting 60% of their top quality produce around the world.

As Australia is the closest southern hemisphere supplier to the Philippines, Australian Table Grapes found in store are guaranteed to be the freshest in the market. The whitish bloom on the skin of each grape is another key indicator of freshness, proving they’re delivered directly from the farm to your table.

For the longest time, my husband kept on asking that we eat out at Caution Hot. Luckily, one of its branches is near our place. So after we dropped off our kid to school, we went to eat there.

It's about lunch time when we got there, and unlike its branch in Maginhawa Street, Quezon City, there were no lines or waiting time, and you can easily get in, order your food and eat. :)

The place is small and only has a few tables but it features a simple contemporary look that gives you a laid-back vibe. Inside, you'll see a side of the wall with a big graffiti where "CHOOSE YOUR BURN" is written up, along with their social media accounts and some of their food in their menu.

A little bit to its right, you'll find a small opening where the orders are submitted and the food is placed before it's served to you.

Their menu is very simple and consists of noodles, sides, coolers and desserts.

For their noodles, you have the choice of what toppings (All-Veggie, Pork, Beef or Seafood), broth (Szechuan, Asam Laksa, or Classic), type of  noodles (Wheat or Egg noodles) you would want. And lastly, you can choose the burn level (1st degree burn, 2nd degree burn, 3rd degree burn, or Ultimate burn) which depends on how spicy you want your noodles to be.

They have three sides available which are the Kuchay-Pork Dumplings (minced Chinese chives and pork), Pork Dumplings (minced pork with shreds of cabbage), and rice. For the dumplings, they also have sauces to choose from. Either Sweet burn sauce or the Black vinegar with chili sauce.

And if you find your orders too spicy, you can douse it with their coolers: Soya, Iced Tea, Oolong Milktea, Tsingtao Beer. You'll be glad to know that they offer their Soya and Iced Tea in unlimited servings!

To top your meal off, they also offer Bao Bing (shaved ice dessert with fruits, jelly, ice cream and sweetened milk) for dessert.

For our meal, here's what we've ordered.

Kuchay-Pork Dumplings (w/ Black Vinegar & Chili Sauce) | 5 pieces (P65.00)

We opted for the Kuchay-Pork dumplings over the regular pork dumplings as we've never tried it before. It tastes average but completely goes well with the Black Vinegar and Chili sauce. 

1st Degree Burn Classic Beef Egg Noodles | (P205.00)

For our noodle bowls, we ordered the same thing (broth: Classic, toppings: Beef, noodles: Egg, burn level: 1st Degree), the only difference is that my husband got the one with friend egg. We only chose the 1st degree burn as our level of spiciness as we're afraid that we might not be able to fully taste the noodle soup, and to finish it. 

It was a good decision as that level only gives you the right amount of kick of spiciness and doesn't overpower the overall taste of the food. 

Oolong Milk Tea | (P75.00)

Since I love milk tea, I ordered a serving of their Oolong Milk Tea. Unlike the other shops who mainly sells milk tea, their Oolong Milk Tea is a bit more strong/bitter in taste, but still, it's a great thirst quencher to pair up with the noodle bowls that we ordered.

Overall, if you're craving for a noodle soup dish with a kick, I'd recommend you to visit Caution Hot and try out their noodle dishes. Aside from the quality in taste and their serving size, their food menu are reasonably priced.

Mang Inasal launched its participation in the ACE Scholarship Program for Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) Operations of Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF). This was part of the recent inauguration of Mang Inasal’s milestone 600th Store in Lipa, Batangas,
The ACE QSR program seeks to give underprivileged youth from Lipa the chance to develop the skills they need to be gainfully employed in the QSR industry. 
Through the network of Pondong Batangan Community Foundation, Inc. in the Archdiocese of Lipa, four scholars from Lipa will be selected and join a class of students who will undertake a QSR Technical-Vocational Course in Anihan Technical School in Calamba. This includes six months of in-school instruction and six months of on-the-job training. Here, the scholars will learn the rudiments of food preparation and food service. They will earn three TESDA certificates/qualifications at the end of the Program. 
Being considered for the scholarship are single women aged 18 – 21, senior high school graduate with at least an 80% scholastic average, coming from a household with a combined family income of P200,000 or less, and willing to study and stay in Calamba City, Laguna for one year.
The scholars supported by MI will begin in June 2020 and their program will run for a year.
“As Mang Inasal grows as an enterprise, it also wants to do its share in building strong host communities whose residents are provided the chance to become more productive members of society. This is the least we can do to reciprocate the support we have been getting from our communities,” said Jojo Subido, MI Business Head.
