Free Delivery from Villa Marcelina Restobar and Grill, Brgy. Lingunan. Villa Marcelina serves "authentic Filipino and Chinese cuisine plus exotic pulutan and pancit sa bilao".
Paraiso ni Baste Hotel Suites. One Valenzuela was given the opportunity to view one of the rooms. An overnight stay at one of their hotel suites costs Php2,500. What she loved about it? Well, the room is (1) very clean, (2) has modern features, and (3) has direct access to the pool area by using the back door. Sweet.

Paraiso ni Baste Pavilion. Looking for a place where to spend an important occasion such as a wedding, a 7th birthday, or a debut? Paraiso ni Baste now has pavilions which one can rent.

Wave Pool. One Valenzuela saw some on going construction at one side of the resort during an early January swim. A new addition to the resort this summer is the introduction of the wave ball.

Updates on the Resort's Rates and Reservation. Just last week, One Valenzuela learned that Paraiso ni Baste only takes reservations for its hotel suites and penthouse. One Valenzuela advises everyone to go here early because the resort observes the "First come, first serve" policy when it comes to kubo and cottage rental.

Spotted Some Good Tasting Grilled Burgers: Coal Spot, Brgy., Marulas, Valenzuela City

Barangay Marulas is fast becoming a foodie haven. After a long and tiring day at the Library, One Valenzuela opted to get a cold cup of milk tea there. And while traversing McArthur Highway, she found another good place to dine. Valenzuelanos, let us welcome Coal Spot in the city!

Coal Spot offers burgers and steaks.

Some customers waiting for their orders.
Coal Spot recently opened last February 27 (roughly ten days as of this writing) and their main staple are grilled burgers. It is the sister branch of Dapitan's Best Coal Grilled Burgers located in Manila.

A happy cook will make a lot of tummies happy.
A Coal Spot crew adds generous amounts of dressing, tomatoes, onions, and greens.
One Valenzuela ordered their second to the largest burger, the Tap Out Burger (Php150.00), which can be sliced into four big quarters. The patty is very thick and juicy. The smokey flavor is a hit! It's like eating a huge Burger King at a very affordable price.

Burger goodness starts at Php55.00 for a quarter pounder. 
Tadahhh! Coal Spot's Tap Out coal grilled burger (Php150.00) for sharing.
Though the business owners were quite busy handling orders during One Valenzuela's visit, they shared the good news that their shop is warmly appreciated to the point that their stocks for three days was consumed within one day! 

Yes, Coal Spot's burgers are that good, guys. 

More About Coal Spot:

Burger grilling hours: 3pm to 12am daily beginning March 8, 2015(But since Coal Spot is still fixing its operations, better check their Facebook page first or come at around 4pm according to Owan)
