¡Viva España!

I've always been fond of cooking shows even back in grade school. I remember watching the Del Monte Kitchenomics segment in Eat Bulaga with Toni Rose Gayda and Chef Sandy Daza, then when we had cable, I was all about Rachel Ray's 30-Minute Meals and Giada DeLaurenti's Everyday Italian.

I started cooking around college, and boosted when I got married. Too bad there are some ingredients that are just difficult to find, even in large and 'posh' supermarkets like Rustan's. So when I saw a super rustic Spanish food-slash-market-place just behind my office building, I was ecstatic. The place is called Terry's Selection Gourmet Store. Apparently, apart from the deli, there's a restaurant upstairs. A friend brought me there and I just had to take pictures with jars upon jars upon jars of preserves, herbs, salsa and what-not. There were cheeses that I have been searching for so, prime meat cuts, wines kept in wine-cellar-shelvings, sardines in vintage-looking sardine cans. Oooh, it was heaven.

Anywho, let me leave you with this...

Lakas maka-España,no?
Badet even had to wrap a scarf for the Euro-vibe.
Terry's selection is in Karivin Plaza, Bldg. B, 2316 Pasong Tamo Ext.
