From time to time, it would be nice to treat yourself to some good food.

There’s only a week left until another month, which gives you enough reason to celebrate your wins. You can totally get creative in doing so—cooking a delicious meal, indulging in your comfort food, having a refreshing drink or even some booze could do the trick. 

When it comes to food, however, it’s hard to know what exactly you’re looking for. Let this list of food news, offerings, and promos help you end the month of May with so much delight. 

How does a one-year supply of Hawker Chan’s best-selling Soya Sauce Chicken Rice sound to you? If this would be a dream come true, then make sure you’re available from May 26 to 31 as the first customers at its SM Grand Central branch will get a chance to win the promo. Winners will get one serving of the dish that’s been loved by many people across the globe, following dates on the Hawker Chan Supply Card. The deal is only valid for dine-in. 

Can’t travel at the moment? For now, satisfy your wanderlust with food. GrabFood Signatures has added more global cuisines to its lineup, including crowd favorites like 24 Chicken, Sunnies Café, ILYStew, KraVerse Food Hall, Kam’s Roast, Hawker Chan, Tim Ho Wan, TeaLive, Pound, Pound x Flatterie, Pizza Telefono, Llaollao, Mesa, and Bench Café.

For those who have joined the plant-based movement this year, here’s a new option in case you haven’t seen it: Burger King PhilippinesPlant-Based X-tra Long Chicken, which “consists of a crispy 6-inch plant-based patty developed by The Vegetarian Butcher, topped with fresh lettuce, creamy plant-based mayonnaise, on soft sesame seed buns.” It doesn’t compromise on flavor—it tastes just like their hit X-tra long chicken, but without the meat.

It’s paramount to encourage healthy living for the kids at home, especially in the time of a pandemic. Every year, Nestle Wellness Campus taps the Department of Education “to educate students and parents on how to live a healthy lifestyle through safeguarding nutrition, health, and wellness.” Included in the program are dance exercises, student and adult modules, as well as their own wellness initiatives geared toward the seven healthy habits: choose nutritious and varied options, manage portions, choose to drink water and milk, enjoy meals together, play actively, care for the planet, and keep good hygiene.

A beloved Filipino dessert just got bigger. Say hello to Jollibee's new Large Peach Mango Pie—the same yummy filling of peach and mango featuring a crispy exterior for more excitement. It’s priced at P45 for a solo order, but it’s also available for P132 for 3 Pies To-Go via dine-in, takeout, and delivery.

Can’t get enough of yogurt drinks? You’d be happy to know about Koomi’s new flavors that could undoubtedly bring joy to your tastebuds and tummy. Aside from the instant hit Kitkat You Outta My Head (choco + KitKat), there are other options that are equally good in their own ways: Tropic Like It’s Hot (dragon fruit + apple + orange), It Takes Passion to Mango (passion fruit + mango), Lemon Bee the One (lemon + honey), and Berry Kiwissable (kiwi + strawberry). 

Everybody loves some gooey cheese in their meal. Since such has long been a pantry staple for many households, Eden Melt Sarap has decided to make it even cheesier, creamier, and meltier than before. It now goes even better with your favorite cheesy dishes as it melts almost instantly and produces an oh-so-fine texture and taste.

If you’re in the mood for some good booze but don’t really want to break the bank, check out Jacob’s Creek Classic’s variety of premium quality yet affordable wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, among others. Each bottle comes from “a wide selection of popular varieties and blends sourced from some of Australia’s premium grape-growing regions.”

The restaurant closed temporarily due to the pandemic, but it’s now back with improved and much safer dining experience for its customers.
