EAT MAKATI: SMOKEYARD


Poblacion Crawl it is! Now trying Smokeyard in Poblacion!

20170516_12413820170516_12423320170516_124429

We all ordered their Lunch Special of Pulled Pork with Iced Tea and Rice for only Php 125.

20170516_12473620170516_124746

It was deadly satisfying! Pulled Pork was tasty and filling at the same time and was affordable too.

Lunch Group was appeased and gratified!

EAT MAKATI: MANDO’S WINGSHACK


Since the mother is out of our radius, lunch outs are more frequent. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wendy suggested this Wingshack but after trying them out, I WARN YOU NOT TO.

20170515_120832

The place was a bit small, just like the other hole in the walls in the area. Inside its shack can fit about 4 tables of 4.

20170515_12085920170515_131035

We got there, observed the menu and tried to order:

20170515_12123120170515_121218

TACOS โ€“ All of them are not available

BURGER โ€“ Not available

CHICKEN TENDERS โ€“ Not available.

All we are left with is their WINGS. I know itโ€™s a wings place but what if we wanted to try all sorts from their menu? And they only have 1 freakin food in their menu thatโ€™s available!!

We were there at 12:15 pm. They open at 12nn. Shouldnโ€™t they be there at 11 am to prepare the food already? We ordered our food at 12:20 โ€“ Wings. We were served after more than an hour! Food was not even hot, not even warm! Food was served at 1:30 pm. Some portions of the plate was wet, sauce was bland, food was cold. None of it was a good enough experience!

20170515_13124520170515_131313

Hayy. We all ordered Wings with the following Sauces:

Beer BBQ

Spicy K-Town

Sweeracha and Buffalo Style.

All four of us was disappointed.

NEVER AGAIN.ย

EAT MAKATI: STAPLE AND PERK BAKERY


We surprisingly found this quaint new cafรฉ in the not so near neighborhood in Makati. This space has everything that Iโ€™m looking for! : Actual food (not just pastries), spacious, bright, quiet, with available plugs and letโ€™s not forget —- Instagrammable Place! ๐Ÿ˜€

20170429_12242120170429_12282120170429_123102

Walls are filled with paintings, quotes and other artworks that makes it instagrammable.

We ordered the following;

Chicken Japanese Mayo for Php 180

20170429_12391120170429_123933

This was the boyfriendโ€™s order so I didnโ€™t want to eat a lot of it, but I did. It was yum-eh. I think the Japanese Mayo pulled this one off.

I wanted to order their Bacon and Cheese Flatbread but unfortunately, they ran out of bacon that day so I ended up ordering the Roasted Chicken Flatbread which turned out to be really good as well.

The Roasted Chicken Flatbread is for Php 200

20170429_12424620170429_124156

Pretty much enjoyed my stay here. It would have been better if I was able to stay longer and get some work done. ๐Ÿ™‚

Snapshots that day with the boyfriend:

20170128_104118

We had lunch at City of Dreams. No grand plans for the day though. :/ I decided to bring him here because it’ll be his first time. After which, watched a movie at MOA. went home, watch How to get away with Murder and Suits at home.

EAT MAKATI: NOMADS


Have you tried any new restaurant around Jupiter? Well I have! I actually forced them to. Haha.

20170130_12035720170130_12040420170130_12112520170130_121134

We were the first and only ones there on a thursday lunch. ๐Ÿ™‚

20170130_120655

They have a specific menu for lunch. but the street food is only available 5pm onwards.

20170130_12273120170130_122742

Rhina ordered the Classic Mongolian for Php 225.

20170130_12275220170130_122823

While the three of us ordered the Kimchi Steak and Eggs for Php 225.

It was GOOD. It was not as awesome as Wildflour’s but it’s worth a try. ๐Ÿ™‚

EAT MAKATI: MUDPIE HEAVEN


20160930_205402

And after that fulfillinh salty eggsperience, we head out for some sweets! And this little heaven is tucked on the corner, barely seen. Glad we did!

20160930_20565320160930_205530

There’s an al fresco area – but it was a bit hot. The interiors looked like they have a bar inside. Dessert bar, perhaps.

He ordered for a Missisipi Gelato Pie for Php 250. Its an Oreo Crust with Vanilla and Dark Chocolate Gelato topped with Whipped Cream and Chocolate Sauce. Very, Very, Very Sinful — but all worth it!

image-0-02-06-2aab94b9ec7e715cb62af9dab47e39c3419c62572704a2f1c0ffc3811bd41e00-v

While I ordered a Nutella Bun Ala Mode for Php 200. The Bun was a little off. It wasn’t dry, but it wasn’t moist either. — The only good thing here is the nutella in the middle. But you have to reach the middle first before it gets good though. But — I guess the Icecream makes it good! So I suggest you order this Ala Mode too.

Yep, we wanted it Al Fresco Style ๐Ÿ™‚

EAT MAKATI: SHRIMP BUCKET


Makati Circuit has been continuously growing its name! One by one, stores are already opening and one of it is — Shrimp Bucket!

Straight to our food, shall we?

20160930_19395020160930_194002

We had Deep Fried Baby Squid for Php 215. Not bad for its price. It was really crunchy and the spice was just right — it was powerfully flavorful!

20160930_194318

Fries! because he was avoiding rice.

14608812_10154479517416878_281306667116214339_o

And the Salty Eggsperience for Php 560.ย The Salted Egg Rave reached Shrimp Bucket! For me, there was nothing special on this dish. But the boyfie thinks otherwise. The bucket seems to have 10-12 medium sized shrimps. We didn’t even finish it.

EAT TAGAYTAY: LIME & BASIL RESTAURANT


Because this is a long overdue date. We have been having issues at home, thus I feel guilty to go on dates or to go somewhere. But this guy surprised me when my class got cancelled.

We both love Thai food so there was no argument that happened. ๐Ÿ™‚

20160924_132150

It’s not exactly Thai when we don’t order Bagoong Rice, right? Bagoong Rice for Php 290. Good enough for 2 people.

20160924_132320_002

I knew he will order Chicken – so I had to go with Seafood. We ordered Pla Som Rod for Php 375 – Crispy Tilapia, Tamarind Sauce, Crispy Shallots Thai Basil. It’s a bit expensive, yes. But it’s already in fillets – and it’s so good. I loved it. The Tamarind Sauce was also not that strong, which for me is good. It goes well with the texture of the crispy basils.

20160924_132533

Sate Gai for Php 320. Grilled Chicken Skewer with Peanut Sauce and Cucumber and Salsa. I also liked this dish! It looks like the average Satay but it’s delicious! You don’t even need the vinegar!

20160924_13344120160924_140222

Until our next, L&B! ๐Ÿ˜€

EAT BGC: BIRD HOUSE


20160903_182935

It’s our first time at Uptown Mall. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yayy! And we have it here.

And since it’s in a foodcourt. Ergo, self service restaurant. Then they give you this for you to wait out your order. (just like in SBC)

20160903_18444820160903_184500

Barn Yard D for Php 255. – Two pieces of chicken, 1 Choice of Side dish, 1 sauce and Chicken Skin.

20160903_18452420160903_184508

Barn Yard A for Php 165. – Chicken Tenders, Dirty Rice, 1 sauce and Chicken Skin. I.LOVE.IT.

20160903_184538

2 glasses of Iced Tea Peached for Php 60.ย 

20160903_184718

Yes, it reminds you of Yardbird in Century. But what I do love about them is that they are much more affordable, it tastes the same, and! and, they have Chicken Skin. ๐Ÿ™‚

EAT MAKATI: COME FORTH KITCHEN


20160902_201432

20160902_185854

20160902_185654

40 Cloves of Chicken for Php 360 – Spring Chicken, Cloves of Garlic, gravy and Mashed Potatoes. This has Jude written all over it. Gravy? Check. Mashed Potatoes? Yes. Chicken? Oh hell yes.

20160902_190742

Calamari – Crunchy and just okay.

20160902_190926

My handsome everyday date.

20160902_194730

Meh. Glad we tried but not impressed.

EAT MAKATI: X046 BISTRO


I’m not entirely sure of how we always end up eating Filipino Food. BUT…. Absolutely No Regrets.ย 

Let’s dive in – straight to the food, shall we?

20160705_19461820160705_194556

Spicy Squid for Php 330. Crispy Squid sauteed in Peppers and White Wine. It’s good, although it tasted ย just exactly how it is supposed to taste like. And for those who like spice? better place this on your list.

20160705_19484220160705_194858

Lechon Sisig for Php 335.ย Hmmm. Normal. But the serving is small.

20160705_194919

I love how garlic-ky the rice is!

20160705_195053

And ofcourse, my date! Everything is better when he’s on the table.
