EAT BGC: SHAKE SHACK


Sometimes, only sometimes. . . we get to have employee benefits, only small ones. . and this time, we get to try the new Shake Shack before it opens to the public.

Shake Shack Philippines was brought by none other than the Tantoco Family. It’s located in Central Square, BGC.

I ordered the Single Shack Burger for Php 250 which is amazinnggg. It was juicy and delicious but compared to the one in NYC that I tried, the size is a bit smaller. And you can never eat a burger without fries right? I ordered the Regular Fries for Php 130. But the one I couldn’t refuse is Salted Caramel Milkshake for Php 190. Simply, THE BOMB. I can down the whole thing if only it didn’t give me a brain freeze. 😀

When the long line is over, I’d like to try again with my judey. 😀

EAT BGC: COCINA PERUVIA


I’ll always choose to go to a new place. Luckily, there’s something within the vicinity of our sale event. We asked what their best sellers are and….. it sure was!! 😀

The place was vibrant, pefect for their 24/7 service concept.

We ordered the Chorizo con Pasta for Php 250 – Pomodoro sauce, olives, chorizo, cilantro and parmesan)

LRM_EXPORT_42793032828777_20180831_133901844LRM_EXPORT_42903894651788_20180831_134052706

You have to take note though that I’m definitely not a chorizo type of girl but dannngg, this one won my <3!! It was absolutely delicious!

We also ordered Pasta Verde for Php 250 – Chicken, Cilantro, Lemon and Parmesan)

LRM_EXPORT_42959823283398_20180831_134148635LRM_EXPORT_43001892534293_20180831_134230704

It was a bit dry — bbut probably it’s because of all the parmesan but I still find it a bit bland. I liked the chorizo better.

For pizza, we ordered the Pizza Peruvia for Php 390 – Marinara and BBQ Sauce, BBQ Pulled Pork, Onions, bell peppers, mozarella cheese, chimichurri and arugula

LRM_EXPORT_42707806430403_20180831_133736618LRM_EXPORT_42758457541344_20180831_133827269

Let me tell you that yes, it looked absolutely normal, standard but heyyy! that chihmuchurri as an additional topping made it their best sellers. ❤

It will definitely not be my last! I will take the boyfriend here. ❤ Good job, cocina!

EAT BGC: PASTO


He wanted wine, and wine we had. It’s already a given that we have to eat pasta so we head to Pasto. There were no customers so we happily chose a seat next to the window.

Ghamberi Pasta – Php 265

LRM_EXPORT_12944891684587_20180901_190221384LRM_EXPORT_12981305117021_20180901_190257798

IT’s an olive oil based fetuccine with garlic sauteed shrimps, asparagus spears and fresh diced tomatoes. 

The pasta wasn’t dry but i think it lacked a bit of taste. I also asked for additional parmesan, and they obliged with no additional charge. I was happy about that. 🙂 

Margherita Pizza – Php 215

LRM_EXPORT_13049216944179_20180901_190405710LRM_EXPORT_13076773107317_20180901_190433266

Classic italian combination of fresh tomatoes, mozarella and basil. 

Hmm. It’s okay. It’s how you’d imagine a margherita pizza should be but there was no oomph. 

LRM_EXPORT_13120930151754_20180901_190517423

Lamadoro Bianco 

Straw yellow color with golden reflections , intense aroma, fruity with citrus notes. 

LRM_EXPORT_13179763209491_20180901_190616256

I probably had high expectations of the place thus leaving me with regret. 

Don’t be mistaken. The food and service is okay. But I just expected more. 

EAT FORT: SEOL BANG


​If you happen to be in Venice Piazza, you should make it a point to pass by Seol Bang! Couples, Barkada, Children or may it be adults, you have a place here! ​
We ordered the following:
LRM_EXPORT_20180811_142853
Dak Galbi at Php 238 Stir fried chicken with veggies in chili sauce and rice
LRM_EXPORT_20180811_143003
Beef Bulgogi at Php 289 Thin slices of beef with Jap Chae noodles and rice.
LRM_EXPORT_20180811_143043
Chicken Teriyaki  – less than Php 200 included in their lunch specials
LRM_EXPORT_20180811_142835
Pan Seared Pork  – less than Php 200 included in their lunch specials
LRM_EXPORT_20180811_142424
Triple Berry Cheesecake at Php 288 Small
LRM_EXPORT_20180811_142515
Mango Cheesecake at Php 268
LRM_EXPORT_20180811_142614
Almond Lychee Bingsu – about to be launched
You cannot go here and not try Bingsu cause why the hell are you there in the first place, right? You cannot judge them by their rice meals, I have to be honest though – it’s not that great though it’s not awful at the same time. But if you are looking for something worth your buck? then you can definitely order their rice meals. It is packed with rice and energy and all the carbohydrates in the world.
The shaved ice is full of flavor already. You can actually order the ice and you’d still be pleased! Take note, I don’t eat anything berry but wow. we were able to finish all three. ❤ Good Job, Seol!

EAT FORT: MOE’s


Another Mexican Treat! 😀 Nothing to do on my last day of school. :/ MEH.

Always a Taco for me! 😀 Soft Ground Beef Taco for Php 130. two pieces of taco and some chips!

20170422_13195820170422_132016

And Moe’s famous Chipotle Chicken for Php 265. He finished it in seconds! 😛 I’m assuming this is a thumbs up!

20170422_13202620170422_132045

We also took the time to try Tim Hortons.

Small French Vanilla for Php 100 and Small Hazelnut Iced Capp for Php 135.  Both are equally satisfying! I also ordered some Chocolate Chunk Cookie for Php 50 a piece and some Timbits for Php 10 each. The cookie was good, NOT WOAH thouugh. Timebits are blah.  don’t know why they’re bragging about the timbits at all. It was dry and a bit bland.

20170422_141939

I’d go back for the coffee! 😀

EAT FORT: BURGERS & BREWSKIES


It’s been awhile since we’ve been to BGC. You noticed? Andddd, my crush was craving for burger.

Menu? The boyfriend ordered Kandi for Php 275

And I ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger for Php 265

Both of our burgers are sinful and delicious. We both chose to have our bacon in Honey Sriracha and we both finished our burgers. Satisfying. 🙂

EAT BGC: BIRD HOUSE


20160903_182935

It’s our first time at Uptown Mall. 🙂 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. 

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. 🙂

EVERYDAY: BGC OFFICE

EAT FORT: Cue Modern BBQ


We stayed at F1 Hotel so we opted to eat someplace where we can walk from there. And it happens that High Street was just across from us. We ended up at Cue Modern BBQ.

Since it is one of the up and coming area at Fort, there were only a few people when we got there about 7 in the evening. But we decided to stay outside in one of what seemed to be wooden picnic tables. 

Image

I’m a sucker for lemonades and anything sour. So expect my drink to be always lemonades. And tonight was no different. Most of the restaurants today use such containers for their drinks. But Cue’s take to place one slice on top was summer feast to the eyes. But the size, I might say is a bit small for me. 

Image

We ordered Buttermilk Fried Chicken. As if we didn’t just had one at Kettle that week. But Since he is a Chicken Lover, I gave in. The chicken was huge. Again, Nothing Special. I don’t even know why they name such as Buttermilk – Fried Chicken. Really now? As if Butter and Milk coating would eventually affect the taste of the chicken. It came with a dirty rice but it wasn’t enough for one – let alone two. 

Image

Image

We also ordered Hot Belly Tips – which was my favorite during my first try at Cue. It came with BBQ and Mustard Dip. Good thing my love liked the BBQ better because I have a biased love for the Mustard Dip. 

Image

Image

Yes, we look good together. And I wouldn’t mind if I have dinner with him every day of my life.

EAT FORT: Cue Moden Barbeque

Image

Image

complimentary popcorn while waiting – the waiting period is long. 

Image

Hot Pork Belly Tips (Php 245) – Dijon Honey and Bourbon Barbeque Dips.

Image

The Summertime Mason Shakers (Php 385) – Good for 4 glasses, 3/4 full.

Image

Grilled Pear and Parmesan Salad (Php 255) I’m not a fan of pear sooo, not really attractive. 

Image

DIY Fish Tacos (Php 245) Tacos are g-o-o-d. Pita Bread are only four – disappointing. If only there were more pita breads, I could eat this and nothing else. 

Image

Bacon Mac and Cheese (Php 365) Order this if you love cheese. Noodles is drowning with cheese. 😀

Image

Happy Birthday! And thank you for the treat! 🙂

EAT FORT: NOLITA


It’s been a while since our last Saturday Date. Hooray for today!

Image

They have a diner set up. But they also have picnic tables to slightly soften the look. Nolita is a Self service restaurant. All of their pizzas are on the chalk board menu on the counter.

Image

Though they have menus posted up, you can also check out the freshly baked pizzas on the counter so you still have to check if the pizzas you’ve chosen are available.

Image

Cheeseburger Pizza – It was delicious! It was overflowing with cheese. the beef slices are generous too.

Image

Chicken Parmesan – There was a huge chunk of chicken bits on my pizza!! I think the chicken was deep fried first before it was placed on top of it. It was delicious. Though compared to the Cheeseburger, I liked the cheeseburger better. The reason behind it? CHEESE. The Chicken Parmesan was lavished with tomato sauce. It overpowered the parmesan.

Image

Lemonade with Alcohol – You can’t go wrong with Lemonade! and a little booze doesn’t hurt. But seriuosly, you won’t even taste the alcohol. It was G-O-O-D.

Image

Onion Rings – I’ll rephrase that. It should be Gigantic Onion Rings. They were huge. Onions were as huge. The dip was good!

Image

Overall? We didn’t finish anything. Each pizza was not finished. One slice can be shared by two. Everything was like American Size. Haha. But food was good. :)))
