Love at Home : Samsung Front Load Washing Machine

Another addition to their lineup of smart appliances is the Front Load Washing Machine. Doing the laundry is an arduous and time-consuming task. There are many things to consider when it comes to washing fabric, but Samsung’s newest Front Load Washing Machine makes cleaning clothes a breeze. It makes use of Samsung’s own Eco Bubble Technology that allows powerful cleaning in cold water. Using warm water is an extra step when it comes to doing the laundry, and it can also be damaging to some fabrics. But the Eco Bubble allows for easy cleaning by completely dissolving detergent even with cold water producing fine foam that easily penetrates the fabric for both effective and gentle, cutting the time, effort, and energy needed in doing this task.

In addition to being extremely powerful with its high Revolution Per Minute (RPM) rate, it is also furnished with the Stain Away Program. This pre-programmed cycle was designed to deal with the 12 most common types of stains: blood, cocoa, sebum, oatmeal, tea, wine, tomato, pencil lead, mud, makeup, lipstick, and grass. It does all this with less noise, less vibration, and more performance than an ordinary washing machine. And of course, it is outfitted with the Digital Inverter Technology, guaranteeing efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

‘Tex-Mex’cellence - The Talk Of The Tavern

TEX-MEX MEALS BY CHEF JOSH BOUTWOOD NOW AVAILABLE IN VILLAGE TAVERN

A mix of authentic Mexican and Spanish dishes prepared Texas-style, Tex-Mex cuisine has found its way to the tables of Village Tavern, prepared by award-winning Bistro Corporate Chef, Josh Boutwood. And they’re excellent.

Tex-Mex is a well-loved fusion of Texan, Mexican, Southwestern and Spanish dishes considered as American regional cuisine from the 1800s.


“And since Village Tavern traditionally serves American comfort food, expect to indulge in big bold flavors as we launch our new and exciting Tex-Mex dishes,” Chef Josh Boutwood said.

Crossing the border with cheesier, chili-er and meatier choices are Chef Josh’s latest 9 creations for Village Tavern. Folded in half but a whole lot of flavor, Village Tavern’s take on the classic quesadilla has brisket and ox tongue. The Ox Tongue Tacos boasts of braised ox tongue smothered with a rich combination of zesty chipotle pepper sauce to complete the lip-smacking picture. The Brisket Quesadilla, on the other hand, puts together succulent slivers of beef spiced with cumin and coriander for that beefed up quesadilla goodness.

And holy guacamole! What’s all these quesadillas without a dip or topping? Village Tavern’s Hand Hacked Guacamole is the best thing that has ever happened to fresh chunky avocados seasoned with spices and lime and served with corn tortilla chips.



Village Tavern’s Spiced Rubbed US Prime Flank Steak is premium US flank steak rubbed in fresh herbs and spices, grilled to perfection just the way you want it and served with poblano crema, green rice and corn succotash to bring added flavor.



“If you love spicy, flavorful dishes, you'll love the variety of the new Tex-Mex entrees Village Tavern offers,” Chef Josh enthused. “It’s perfect for a sit-down dinner with the family or a light lunch with friends as you delight in other Village Tavern bestsellers.”

Over the years, Tex-Mex cuisine has undoubtedly evolved in more ways than one can imagine. Varying interpretations of this cuisine has taken you far south of the border or sometimes, way up North, depending on the chef’s style and rendering. Chef Josh Boutwood’s excellent Tex-Mex creations for Village Tavern gives you delicious options for classic American comfort food that takes you right back home.

TGIFriday’s is now in Fairview Terraces Mall

Yes! TGIFriday’s brings its own kind of fun, food and service to the new Fairview Terraces Mall!

This TGIFriday’s restaurant is the third branch to sport the brand’s fresh, new look with a 150 seating capacity.


From the moment people step into the restaurant, they will be sublimely cued by hip and modern interiors. Like the flagship store in Glorietta, this branch boasts a “Promise Wall” alerting guests that whichever day of the week, “In here, it’s always Friday.”

A creative rendition of the New York skyline painted on baseball bats catches the eye on one side of the wall. Steeped in Americana, TGIFriday’s looks back on its first-ever opening in New York City, on 1st Avenue and 63rd Street in 1965. The brand’s history is put on view at theHeritage Wall (framed photographs recap TGIFridays history and depict the journey of its founder, Alan Stillman) where guests can appreciate TGIFriday’s values and commitment in serving good food and providing great service dashed with loads of fun.



Other striking interior pieces include the modish flooring, copper Spun (large red droplights), red decorative pendant lights, deep brown wooden spindles and balusters. All these give off a stylish and trendy image. The bar is located side by side with large TV screens and bar stools done in vibrant deep red hue while the lighted black-and-white striped tile flooring highlights the bar area. The cozy C-shaped couch, wooden community tables and square bar stools are modern seating that exude a young, casual and laidback vibe.

At TGIFriday’s Fairview Terraces, the restaurant’s time-honored traditions remain: the cocktails and beverages prepared by world-class bartenders with their bottle-spinning and drink-flipping flair and of course, the delicious American-style comfort food—burgers, ribs, steaks, pastas, fajitas, decadent desserts and more in hefty servings and ebullient and efficient service by the waitstaff. These have been enjoyed by Filipinos for two decades now.

As it’s 16th store in the Philippines, TGIFridays Fairview is expected to be a popular destination when guests crave good food and a great time. In Fairview, any day can be “Friday’s.”

As the restaurant celebrates its 20th anniversary in the Philippines this year, watch for exciting promotions and events at your favorite TGIFriday’s branch.

TGIFriday’s Fairview is located at Level 1 of Fairview Terraces.
