Gyro V: Greek Doner Sandwich

Last February 2016, Innovention Food Resources Inc, the same group behind the Famous Belgian Waffles and Mare 24 Oras, opened Gyro V's first branch at SM North Edsa The Block. 

Gyro V, pronounced as "yeero V" is a greek inspired fast food concept that specializes in fusion kebab sandwiches. Their kebabs are made from 100% pure beef and chicken fillet, marinated to perfection. To have a distinctive taste, they use a secret sauce and a freshly baked bread delivered everyday to their store.

All Chicken Gyro Sandwich with Cheese - P105.00
I love their freshly baked bread that is perfectly crisp on the outside that adds texture to the Gyro Sandwich. The meat is tender and the additional cheese made it more flavorful. Since I'm not a fan of veggies, I opted to get the All Chicken with less veggies and more meat that I definitely enjoyed eating. 

Besides their best sellers Beef and Chicken Gyro Sandwiches, they also offer the Greeky Fries and Grilled Cheese:

Greeky Fries - P120.00
The Greeky Fries is good for sharing and has a generous amount of cheese, special sauce and beef kebab bits. Though a bit pricey, it is better if you order it together with a Gyro Sandwich for an additional P35.00 only.

Grilled Cheese w/ Special Dip - P75.00
The Grilled Cheese can be very addictive because it is really delicious. Made out of freshly baked bread with 3-4 different melted cheeses with their special dip that truly compliments the taste of the grilled cheese, you will probably enjoy every bite of this snack. They also have a refreshing Iced Tea available for only P55.00.

Gyro V currently has 2 branches at SM North and SM Mall Of Asia and they are planning to open branches at SM Megamall and Eastwood soon. They are also adding new products on their menu such as the Gyro Chicken Salad and Chicken or Beef Over Rice that will definitely be something to look forward to. 

It was a great tummy-filling experience that I certainly enjoyed, thanks to Sir Jeffrey of JDR Marketing and Gyro V owners Ms. Kate and Mr. Euclid Cezar for inviting us over. Looking forward to visiting the store again and grab some snacks soon since I always drop by at SM North before I go home from the office.

Gyro V is also open for franchising so if you are interested to be part of the Gyro V family, you may email them at or contact them at 09175594318, 09153933388 or 4704783. To know more about Gyro V and the products they are offering, check out their website and Facebook page.

Let the kids jump and have fun with Bubi Trampoline

Every time I go to the mall with the kiddos and we pass by a playground, they go and ask if they can stay there for a while. The scenario has been like this when my oldest turned 4 years old and with the younger one getting more and more energetic each day, he would also try to join her sister in the playground. 

We've been seeing a new kiddie corner in a nearby mall and the kids have been wanting to try it. Known as the Bubi Trampoline, it is an indoor/outdoor trampoline covered with safety nets and filled with colorful balls inside. It also has balloons and led lights outside that can really attract kids to check it out.

To give you a little background of the Bubi Trampoline, it was actually established in our country back in 2011 and started to operate under SMAI (Sia and Mak Amusement Inc) on December 2013. The SMAI has been producing and distributing high quality trampolines all over Europe for more than 12 years and they've been constantly checking and improving the production to keep every customer extremely satisfied and happy with the trampolines. 

These Bubi Trampolines are not just for fun but it can also help in developing a child's motor skills, teach persistence and improving their self esteem and behavior. It may also reduce a child's restlessness, alleviate stress and strengthen their immune system. This could also help in a child's weight loss and maintenance.

Party Beyond Ordinary with Victoria Court Themed Rooms

Victoria Court has been one of the pioneers in the motel industry since they opened their first branch in Pasay during the 70s. They have been known to provide Quality Service which the customers really appreciate resulting to the growth of the company.

Once you enter the room, costumes and light sabers are available to be used by avid fans who want to be in character during their stay at the Space Wars. Then, they will be greeted by the "Infinity Floor" and an interactive Space Ship cockpit that actually moves up when you push the controls forward. You can also control the room's light using the buttons found in the space craft.

The jacuzzi can be found at the center of the room but a bathroom and a comfort room are also available, with a huge photo of a Shadow trooper in the shower room.
