It's Christmas season and the last thing you want to be is the person who brings a box of dry brownies that clearly has "afterthought" written all over it. One of the best things about Christmas reunions and parties is being able to kick back and catch up, while you're surrounded by really good, indulgent food. So to make sure no one internally boos you at the next party you have to attend, here are some actually-exciting things you can bring!
Shake Shack Burgers
Imagine walking in and surprising your barkada with a box full of Shake Shack cheeseburgers like a champ? It's extra special because: 1) They didn't have to wait in line and 2) you didn't have to go all the way to BGC to get 'em 'cause they just opened their Megamall branch. Win-freaking-win.
ICYDK, Shake Shack's Megamall branch has two *exclusive* offers: the Mega Mangga and Coconut Pie Oh My.
Monga Fried Chicken
What better way to say "Happy holidays" than with Taiwanese-style fried chicken that's as big as your hand?
If you and your friends are the type of people who enjoy eating breakfast food any time of the day, you're going to *love* this one: Monsieur Waffles PH offers authentic, homemade Belgian waffles. And if you end up partying all night ('tis the season nga naman), these babies will taste just as delish with a cup of coffee. ;) Priced at P700, one pack of their Liege Waffles comes with six pieces and two toppings.
Midas Choco Dreamcake
Trust me: You *want* to be the person who brings dessert—especially if it's as good as Midas' Choco Dreamcake. These start at P300 net.
PSA: FRNK recently opened their bake bar at SM North Edsa. They now have low-calorie donuts you might want to check out if you're looking for something sweet that won't make you feel umay. Highly recommend the Spiced Cinnamon, which is priced at P80 per piece.
Koomi's Yogurt Drinks
If you ~really~ want to think outside the box, instead of gifting your crew with a bottle of booze (as expected), surprise them with yogurt drinks instead. My personal fave from Koomi is their Stick-On-Me Purple Rice (Australian blend).
