Catch The Purple Doll on GMA News TV's POP Talk on June 4!

One of the highlights of my 2012 was being a reviewer in the "Basta driver, food lover" episode of GMA News TV's POP Talk. A few months later, I was lucky to have taken part again in another exciting food trip, this time, in Kapitolyo -- a foodie haven in Pasig City.

Since this is already my second time, I wasn't as stunned in disbelief that my face will appear on national television. There's still that amazement though since POP Talk contacted me again for another episode. And although I'm not really a full-fledged expert when it comes to food, I'm grateful for the opportunity of not just getting to go on another food trip, but also for the experience and the chance to share my love for food on TV.

Together with POP Talk's host Kuya Tonipet, the talented actress Max Collins, and college student JV, we went on a food trip in Kapitolyo to try Three Sisters' Restaurant, BULLCHEF and Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina before chilling at Mad Mark's for the verdict.

I hope I'm not spilling important beans here, but let me give you a mouth-watering sneak peek of what you can expect on POP Talk this Tuesday! *wink*

I personally haven't seen the teaser yet, so I don't know if I'll look as awkward as before or not. But nonetheless, I'm sure this will be a great episode for foodies, especially to those planning to go on a Kapitolyo food trip as I myself really enjoyed trying out these 3 restaurants, as well as scouting other Kapitolyo eateries worth visiting in the near future.

I'll be posting separate features-slash-reviews for these restaurants within the week. But for the meantime, please watch POP Talk on GMA News TV (Channel 11) this Tuesday, June 4, night at 10PM for your dose of Kapitolyo food porn na talagang POP na POP!
