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

Irish Coffee

Pan de sal dish: Bangus 

Angus Pares

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.

Strawberry Lemonade

Their Mother’s Inspiration (sausage, ham, mesquite chicken, capsicums, mushrooms, olives, and cheddar cheese) could be done better.

image

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 :)

image

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

image

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. :)

image

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! :)

Hot Chocolate

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 :) 

Shrimp Dumpling

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! :)
