In this laidback neighborhood in Alabang, there’s this place called West Gate. In this, you’ll find secret gems that will feed your hungry palate. And by gem, I mean Da Gianni. ❤
We are having our late lunch on a Sunday at 2:00 pm and the restaurant was still almost full when we got there. I had to pick the one nearest the window for a good lighting. (hihi). The place looks posh with brick walls and wooden tables.
We were given the typical appetizer at first. ❤
We ordered Quattro Formaggi for Php 535 – Four Cheese topped with Truffles
I’ve had A LOT of Four Cheese pizzas in my life, it’s been a favorite variant of mine and this, I have to say is my favorite out of all my favorites. ❤ It’s just oozing with goodness.
We also ordered an Oil Based Pasta, Gambas Aglio Olio for Php 450 – Olive oil and garlic
The Chef had to improvise. If you see their menu, they don’t really have an aglio olio dish with shrimps but we requested it. The Chef happily obliged. We just asked that we be informed of the cost first. And they definitely delivered. The pasta is PERFECT. ❤ Good is an understatement. Every bite is heavenly. ❤ ❤ ❤
With this, we also ordered 2 Wines by the Glass, Trebbiano D Abbruzzo Doc, a sweet white wine for me and Rosato Salento, a rose for the husband.
A perfect lunch to end our weekend. Definitely not our last. ❤
The place is open and surrounded by glass. It’s lit with sun so the entire place is bright, which is why I also like it. ❤ We had a reservation that’s why we were able to get a table. I suggest you do the same because while we were there, there’s a couple of groups which they had to turn down because the place was full and tables were already reserved.
Anyway, so we ordered a LOT. It seems like all Filipinos are – we are afraid to go hungry. 😀
Paella Negra for Php 690
Thanks to my husband, this is now one of my favorite food to order anywhere. I’m glad that the serving of seafood is very generous. The calamari was still crispy and the actual squid is not gummy and not just flour. The paella is flavorful unlike some where it tends to get bland. Love, love, love this. ❤
Pasta del Parmigiano Pasta (Parmigiano Wheel) for Php 520
I didn’t get to taste this but according to my sister and brother in law, they really liked this. I think the serving can be for 2-3 if you ordered other food to go with this.
Tomato Cream Spaghetti Al Gambheri for Php 825
4 Stagioni for Php 485
This is basically veggie pizza – Tomato based topped with artichokes and mushrooms. This is a no for me. I’m definitely not their customer.
Carnivora for Php 550
Pollo Al Mattone for Php 720
There’s a lot of food I didn’t get to try. I apologize. 😛 Hahaha. BUT, a lot of good feedback.
Serving is good for groups. ❤ Next time, I’ll stick to pasta and paella. ❤ Happy Birthday to me! ❤
Pre-game is strong! 😀 Another pre-birthday treat of my hubby is in Ooma. Okay, honestly we are to choose only from the Moment Group since a supplier gave us a gift card. Thank you. ❤
We ordered the Kani Salad for Php 295
Love Kani. ❤
Ebi Tempura Maki for Php 255
and Gyudon for Php 209
Absolutely nothing special. I find it too salty and so-so.
But heyyy, just look at my handsome date. ❤ ❤ ❤ I can’t believe I get to have a date with this one whenever I freakin want to. 🙂
It’s my Pre-Birthday Lunch! and because we are about to check-in in one of the hotels nearby, we decided to have lunch in Molito, Alabang and the hubby has been craving for frankie’s. TSS. (as if it’s his birthday) no. not a fan of wings btw.
He ordered a Half Dozen Classic Buffalo Wings for Php 130
And I ordered the Boneless Salt & Pepper Chicken with Bleu Cheese Dip for Php 209
And obviously, a side of French Fries for Php 100
I will always be celebrating with this one from now on. ❤
Let’s cut to the chase! We went to Evia Lifestyle Center for some l – o – b – s – t – e – r!!
For their welcome treats, they are giving this parmesan bread? which is bland? the flavors are just at the top and the bread is a bit dry inside.
We ordered the Honey and Blue Cheese Salad for Php 450 which I wasn’t able to take a picture. 😀 so we ordered some meat.
Chops New Orleans for Php 495 – Pork Chop, Shrimp, Cajun, Butter Sauce, Pico de Gallo and Wild Rice.

and the rockstar of the whole restaurant!! And Ultimate Feast for Php 2,500 each. Main Lobster Tail, Snow Crab Legs, Shrimp Scampi, Fries, Wild Rice, Veggies and Butter Sauce. I am all about the shrimp that’s why it caught my attention more than the crab!!
The ultimate feast is Good for 2. You can stretch it to three if you have other viands to share with. 😊
