Holiday goodies to feast on this Christmas


By MB Online

It must be harder now to juggle gift and grocery shopping with Christmas just around the corner. If you can’t think of anything special but have some money to spare, here are upscale holiday goodies you can add to the Noche Buena table.

1. Tea Ring Bread

Italianni’s tea ring bread is a delight in the center of the table as much as it is in the stomach. This traditional, pull-apart Italian bread is rich and buttery, filled with custard and rum-soaked fruits.

5. TGI Friday’s Holiday Platters

TGI Friday’s are treating customers with two Holiday Platters to choose from—partial to a full rack of ribs or chicken.


Customers can have TGI Friday’s country Jack Ribs (slow-cooked, grilled, fall-off-the-bone tender pork ribs that’s drizzled with Friday’s signature Bourbon BBQ Glaze) or a basket full of the crunchy Louisiana-style Country Fried Chicken.

But if buyers want the best of both worlds, they may opt to have a combination of the two.

Country Jack Ribs (full rack): P950
Country Fried Chicken Basket: P650
Country Jack Ribs and Fried Chicken: P1,495

Start planning your holiday menu with any of these goodies, or maybe even share one as a gift for your loved ones.
