Zucchini Sticks - supposedly served with olive aioli but they gave us bleu cheese dip instead! Thumbs up for that :D
P. Sherman for me since I can’t eat beef! They use New England style fish cakes instead of fried fish fillet (which common fish burgers are made of) and I really enjoyed it! Highly recommended fish burger :D
It’s Heisenberg Burger for Jim. :) with bleu cheese sauce and jicama celery slaw.
Thank you for bringing me here!! :D
Great place, great place :)
Pan de sal dish: Bangus
Cappuccino with Hopia
We were excited to try out this all day breakfast place located along Shaw but it came out to be just so-so, if not a disappointment. I don’t understand why some like it here haha
First of all their pancake dishes were unavailable! I specifically came here thinking I would get some fluffy pancakes for breakfast. So we were just left with a limited choice on their menu.
Their Mother’s Inspiration (sausage, ham, mesquite chicken, capsicums, mushrooms, olives, and cheddar cheese) could be done better.
Then this one’s called Happy Morning (bisquit dough topped with saugsage bites, peppers, sauteed onions, 2 eggs, cheese, and sour cream salsa). But well, I don’t see what’s so happy about it hahaha The bisquit was just fried dough and then the rest was just normal.
This restaurant is not trying to be like all the ramen shops today. It’s owned by pepper.ph and yeah, it’s really something they would come up with haha
Chasu Rice Rolls for starts. So far so good :)
And this August, they created Arakawa Abura Soba, pan-fried ramen with Hanamaruken’s pulled pork ribs and R. Lapid’s chicharon. But a soup-less ramen??!! Whew. Today’s food oxymoron to the next level!
It’s a bit oily for me, though. But then again, as stated in their website, their philosophy states more calories, more pleasure. hahaha
Left to right: Tonkotsu (pork bone broth served with chasu, charred garlic oil, and house- made XO sauce); The Communist (seven spices in a fiery pork broth topped with chashu and charred garlic oil); Sea Men Ramen (clams, squid and shrimp in a seafood broth)
The first one’s a bit common. Second is too spicy!! I particularly enjoyed the last one. :)
And here we go for dessert, it’s Poop of the gods! :)) Basically chocolate paced in olive oil (whut) topped with sea salt and toasted bread? :)) Nothing’s normal in here. We just dipped the bread in olive oil to somehow make it natural to the taste buds. hahaha
In Maginhawa, tbt doesn’t mean throwback Thursdays :)) It means The Breakfast Table! :)
TBT Cooler (calamansi, tanglad, pandan, malunggay, muscovado)
Breakfast Pizza (longganisa bites, herb sauce, slow-cooked tomatoes, cheese, and fried egg) - pretty good! :>
Savory French Toast (cheese, bacon, ham, mushroom)
A new Chinese restaurant in Kapitolyo! It’s a modern mixture of Chinese and European cuisine :)
Truffled Roasted Duck Stuffed Ravioli - the name says it all. This one’s really gooood!
Breaded Pork Chops with Sweet and Sour Prune Sauce
Chinese Style Ossobucco (slow-cooked beef shanks in soy sauce, sherry wine, and chinese spices)
It’s one of the restaurants I want to go back to! :)
Another one of those places where it’s great to have a photoshoot and eat at the same time!
We’re happy with the venue but sadly, the food is not at par with it’s interior design. Hope they improve it!
The Local (salad with broiled Laguna white cheese, crispy onions, pinipig brittle, balsamic guava dressing)
Crispy Tofu (with peanut ginger sauce)
Adobo Flakes and Kesong Puti Panini
Aligue & Tuyo Pasta
This resto is literally just like a kanto/karinderia place but the food was pretty good. Staple breakfast choices on their menu and very affordable :)
People really do visit the place and we even have to wait in line just to get a table (at 3pm! :O ) :)
Hot Chocolate :D
Batangas Beef Tapa
Mixed Berry Pancakes
So we were looking forward to have a Thai dinner at Dek A, one hole-in-the-wall kind of restaurant in the little streets of Makati but apparently they closed down already. :( After spending more than an hour looking for it, we just decided to head to Greenbelt for this one!
Choo Chee Kung + Roti - This is roti bread with minced prawn dip. Most of their appetizers actually look good and interesting! Will probably go back and try some next time. :)
Cinnamon Pork Ribs - This one’s kind of disappointing. We couldn’t catch the hint of cinnamon and it was just like ordinary pork ribs, saltier even. It’s also part of the Chef’s Recommendation list, thus I expected a lot.
Pork Pineapple Yellow Curry - This one’s not the usual curry. It’s sweet and light due to the pineapples. First time to try out this kind of curry! Not bad haha
And of course, Pad Thai that comes in an eggnet. :D
