Shawarma Shack Provides Help For the Victims of Taal Volcano

8:03:00 PM

The notable buy one take one shawarma store and one of the easiest access to Middle Eastern food, Shawarma Shack, made an effort to visit the affected communities of the recent Taal Volcano eruption, particularly those in Tanauan City, Batangas. The company donated bottled water and relief goods to over 1,000 families in different areas.

This good effort came from the heart of Shawarma Shack founder Walther Buenavista's wife, Patricia Buenavista, who spent her early childhood in Tanauan City. It was disclosed that she has relatives residing in the area when the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) raised alert level 4 for Taal Volcano on January 12, 2020.

Multiple houses and livelihoods were destroyed since the volcano started erupting, forcing residents within the 14-kilometer radius from the main crater to immediately evacuate. This is when the bayanihan evidently blossomed among Filipinos—everyone, even in their own little way, lent a helping hand.

Shawarma Shack visited and gave aid to 170 families relocated to La Consolation College, 70 families at Daughters of Mary Immaculate School, 89 families at Tanauan Local Government Unit Evacuation Center, 120 families at Tapia Elementary School in Barangay Trapiche, 98 families at Jesus is Lord Christian School, 45 families at Tanauan City College, 250 families at Pamahalaang Sentral ng Hilagang Tanauan, 98 families at Ulango Elementary School, and 92 families at Pantay Bata Elementary School.

Tanauan City Vice Mayor Atty. Herminigildo "Jun-jun" G. Trinidad assisted the Buenavista family along with other Shawarma Shack volunteers during this relief operation.

John Lloyd Cruz Comes Back With An Endorsement Appearance After 2 years

8:49:00 AM

One of the great pa-fall actors in the romance genre in the Philippine Film Industry, John Lloyd Cruz, is believed to be making his comeback with the surfacing of his photos and videos online. The matinee idol has been in hiatus with his showbiz career since 2017.

Lloydie, one of the most sought actors in Philippine cinema and a very effective endorser proved that his fans are still waiting for his return. In a teaser video, which lasted only for a few seconds and only shows the back shot of Cruz’s, and posted in the Facebook page of the number one selling shawarma Turks a few weeks ago had been viewed 3.2M times, shared almost 800 times and gained a huge number of comments.

Without any clue in that teaser video, his fans already assumed that it was him in the video. Actress Bea Alonzo on her Instagram also posted a screenshot of that teaser video, which garnered almost a million likes.

This Monday morning Turks finally revealed in the 1-minute and 17 seconds video of Cruz showing the actor walking through different destinations, which somehow depicts Cruz’s sojourn. The video is very simple, yet there’s drama the way it was created, and in a very subtle shot, he stopped and took a bite of a Turks pita doner.

The rugged look of Cruz in the Turks video titled Ang Pagbabalik is way too far from his guy-next-door image and a lot of people in the industry are asking if this signals his return to the limelight. His fans are still wondering about the life he’s been living since his hiatus.

According to Turks president Gem L. Zenarosa that during the course of his talks with Cruz, they never talked anything about his showbiz career or plans. He added that he got Mr. Cruz as the latest ambassador of Turks because of his great confidence working with Cruz.

“I am really grateful that John Lloyd trusts our company, he is a brilliant and very creative young man. Aside from acting we have discovered some of his remarkable talents,” Zenarosa stressed.

The Ang Pagbabalik according to Zenarosa is actually about Turks Small Pita Doner, which will be available again in all its branches.

“John Lloyd is the best endorser for this because like him, despite his absence in the showbusiness for a couple of years, the warmth and love of his fans for him never dwindles. With our Small Pita Doner we believe that our customers will be happy to know that it is back in our menu,” Zenarosa explained.

Just like Cruz who is seen to have a different image since he last appeared in the big screen, a clear indication that the actor is recreating himslef and exploring different grounds, Turks is also doing the same thing to keep its customers excited whenever they visit a branch.

In time for the release of Cruz's endorsement video, Turks also released to the market its newest offering --- Turks Rice Bowl, which is a complete meal. You can choose beef or chicken for your rice topping, and it is priced at P50. The Small Pita Donner on the other hand, is priced at P35.

"To keep up with the demands of our customers, Turks continues to improve our menu and offerings to satisfy the discriminating taste of our loyal patrons," Zenarosa stressed.

John Lloyd Cruz now joins the roster of endorsers of Turks such as Piolo and Inigo Pascual.

An Extra Ordinary Food Experience at Mazza Shawarma

8:18:00 PM
Mazza's Shawarma with its bite size beef and other ingredients.
I'm not very much sure if it was late 90's when Shawarma stands starts popping up almost every corner of the streets but one thing is for sure it's something new to Filipino taste buds that's why it became a hit.  Almost everywhere you'll see people holding a wrap of shawarma, munching on that Persian food.  I don't know who brought shawarma to the Filipino food scene but it really created a new food adventure.

Though the hit of the Shawarma dies down due to some factors, there are still some establishments who continued to serve and provide this extra ordinary taste.  One establishment, though they have been only opened for a year, Mazza Shawarma was able to make a stand out and offer this Persian cuisine.  Unlike any of those sprouted stalls before, Mazza Shawarma have their own distinction.

Front of Mazza Shawarma with good space for parking.
Mazza Shawarma isn't a stall or a kiosk that we usually find but it is a restaurant that can be located along the avenue of C. Raymundo at Hampton Gardens Arcade, Maybunga, Pasig City.  Giving their customers a more relaxing and extra ordinary dining experience.  Owned by business-minded and food loving couple, Aris Carino and Karen Dulay.  After finishing culinary school they decided to open their own restaurant which is the Mazza Shawarma.

So, what makes Mazza's Shawarma stands out?   Unlike the usual kiosk or stall type store, Mazza Shawarma doesn't settle for just cheap ingredients, they make sure that it is high quality beef.  They don't cook their beef on the usual vertical stove but in a normal cooking to keep the tenderness and juiciness of the beef in tact.   Added with their special ingredients and an abundant amount of spices makes it more extraordinary.    Take note, Shawarmas should be taken while it is hot to personally experience the texture, taste and aroma of the food and ingredients.  Also, don't forget their Garlic Sauce and the spicy one.  It really compliments with the shawarma.  The experience was great without the tangy after taste that give a bad breathe.

They also have different Persian cuisine in their menu that will for sure let you drool for more.  The grilled Pita bread that goes well with garlic dip or jalapeno hummus dip.  Great as an appetizer. The addicting Keema which goes well with Pita bread or with rice.  The beef and chicken kebabs that are well grilled that can be ordered either in solo stick or together with a rice.  This one, aside from the shawarma, is also everybody's favorite, the 11-inches Beef Shawarma Pizza.  It is for sure a tummy-filler for two persons but good enough for four persons.   I just want to have another set of those Persian food.  

Sweet and Tasty Red Ice Tea.

If you're looking for a new food adventure, I definitely recommend Mazza Shawarma, it's worth scouting for.  
And by the way if you're going there together with a whole bunch of your barkada, they can accommodate more or less 28 people per turnover inclusive of 9 people seated in the smoking area.  It offers dine-in, take-out and delivery (for nearby areas only) services to customers.  Plus a free wifi (for a blogger like me) access to let you post those mouthwatering foods on your social networking sites.  

Thanks to Aris Carino and Karen Dulay for these tasty treats.

Shawarma Benefits and Stuff

11:42:00 AM

Shawarma is one of the popular dishes that Middle Easterners dig in. It is considered or called a wrap food. The shawarma's stuffing consists of beef, turkey, chicken, goat or lamb but sometimes they mixed it with different types of meats. It is served with pita bread, cucumber, lavash bread, tomatoes, tabouli salad, tabbon bread and fattoush salad. The meat is placed on a spit and it is commonly grilled not just hours but sometimes for an entire day, of course with just medium heat. Perhaps it is done to drip off the fat of the meat. That's the usual serving of Middle Eastern Shawarma.

In the Philippines, shawarma has been one of the foods dig in by many Filipino. Once it has been a craze but drops down and only few who really brings out the good taste of shawarma stays in the market. Up to now people visit this restaurants to have a taste of Middle Eastern foods.

Very few people know that this kind of wrap food is not only quick and instant to prepare but also serves good nutrition for our body. With all the ingredients stuff inside the shawarma like cucumber, tomato, onion, meat or chicken, it will provide our system with nutrients like Proteins, Potassium, Vitamin A, Sodium, Vitamin B6, and more.

So easy, convenient, and healthy!
