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

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. 🙂 Wendy suggested this Wingshack but after trying them out, I WARN YOU NOT TO.

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.

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

20170515_12123120170515_121218

TACOS – All of them are not available

BURGER – Not available

CHICKEN TENDERS – Not available.

All we are left with is their WINGS. I know it’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 that’s available!!

We were there at 12:15 pm. They open at 12nn. Shouldn’t they be there at 11 am to prepare the food already? We ordered our food at 12:20 – 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!

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.

EAT MAKATI: RELISH


Because we don’t actually have anything planned for the night.

Relish Special Sisig for Php 295. No wonder they attached their name to this dish. It was crispy and it certainly was special.

Behold the Chimichurri Chickenn Kebab for Php 395 – Boneless Chicken Chunks marinated in their special chimchurri sauce, skewered with onions and tomatoes served with aoili sauce. Not a fan of chicken BUT, I happened to finish this dish somehow.

VENICE: 26th BIRTHDAY

Thank you for everyone who made my birthday special. Thank you babe for all the surprises, gifts and effort. I love you so much.

VENICE: For 2017


I don’t have the perfect resolutions right now, I don’t even have a clear picture of what my goals are for this year. But all I know, or all I can assure right now —- is that I’ll somehow be a better version of myself. It may be a little, a lot, a bit in some areas.. but I’ll be a better one.

EVERYDAY: CHRISTMAS WITH LOVE


HA! Finally got to spend time with the Love of My Life! It has been a stressful week. I’ve been so excited to see him and too tired to even stay awake at the same time. I am sorry babe.

20161223_151012

And after our third attempt, he was able to try Marcia Adams!

We both chose the Amalfi Prawns as our starter.

My Handsome Date ordered the Aromatic Pork which is very succulent and deserves to be the star of their menu.

I ordered the Chicken Kebab. – A first for me, to actually pick a Chicken Dish. It was not bad, paired with its dip – I can actually finish the plate. But I was too full already.

For dessert, the lovely date ordered the Banana Split.

I ordered the Fried Banana with Chocolate Dip

Thank you so much, Love! They are my new favourite, thanks to you. I love you and Merry, Merry Christmas, Sweetheart!

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. 🙂

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! 😀
