Suddenly, at the flip of a page, I saw a photo of a familiar treat: golden fried meat resting on a saucy, runny bed of yellowed softness with little pools of savory fluid—all topped with shreds of greens. It was in the Katsudon section and is the chicken version of the dish.
Imagine the best brazo de Mercedes you’ve had then add a generous dollop of lemon extract, which would be embraced by the fluffiest cream possible topped by lemon zest. I couldn’t imagine the meal ending any other way.
Through cooperation with the Rustans Group of Companies, TWG Tea opened their doors in the Philippines in November 7, 2012, which was the seventh international opening for the company. As of this writing, they have six branches in the Philippines, all found within Metro Manila.

The cavalcade of seraphim and nephilim introduced me to the world of angelology, symbology, and numerous Christian legends. And I thought only the secular world had folklore.
