Just a couple of steps from my office, you’ll see whitebrass in the streets of Jupiter.
Some quiet and comfy restaurant enough for a cozy date night with my frood. ❤
Pork Jowl Crisps (Php 150) – Deep Fried Pork – Can you imagine small portions of bagnet? Well, try this one and you’ll find out. ❤
BBQ Chicken (Php 250) – Grilled Chicken Fillet / Calamansi based BBQ with Roasted Garlic Rice. This one is a keeper. ❤ I liked this dish.
Shrimp and Olives (Php 275) Shrimp, Olives and Anchovies – Let’s just say we have a winner on our table! Everything that we ordered right here is worth the money.
This is not on my list — but the boyfriend was quick to suggest this (which happens rarely). Thus, I said yes immediately. 😛
Let’s get straight to the food since I don’t have other pictures.
Grilled Chicken Teriyaki – Php 230 Grilled Quarter Leg glazed with their very own teriyaki sauce served with buttered vegetables
Usually, I’m not amazed with Chicken Dishes – but I liked this one. And the boyfriend too, obviously. (this is his order)
Lechon Kawali – Php 350 Twice cooked pork belly and stir fry greens with pesto sauce.
This was a first for me. The pesto sauce smelled appetizing. Although I didn’t know what it would taste like in a meat!!! Good thing I tried! It was S-O-O GOOD!
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. 🙂
And Chicken Popcorn in Buffalo Sauce
Always with my date..
We were luck enough to stroll down the streets of Aguirre and stumble upon an empty parking lot of Puzzles.
Which was always, always full during weekends.
We took advantage of our luck!
Wooden Tables, Couches and Colorful Plastic Tools decorate the whole place.
Quotes hang on perfect frames across the white wall.
And on the other side of the room, ofcourse a whole scatter of board games can be chosen.
Self Service type, you will encounter a slightly deformed attitude on the counter.
And as metaphors are in line for puzzles, you may expect a fire breathing dragon waiting for you to pay.
They are less friendly than they ought to be.
Anyway, we ordered for the Honey Sriracha Chicken Panini — Php 210
I never liked ham during new years, and it somehow reminded me of Christmas!
And what a delightful present if it really was christmas! We both loved this particular panini!
ALTHOUGH, the chips we would’ve guessed that it’s been take out of the bag too soon.
We also ordered the Grilled Chicken Pesto Pasta — Php 190.
It tasted like it’s trying too hard to create a pesto from scratch — that it turned out as a disaster.
And a side of Sur-fries — Php 90.
It was seasoned with pepper. It was o-kay. It was yumm-my as how kids would say but nothing
really quite different to its taste.
We were the only ones at the store, and we weren’t really in the mood to play since
most of the games require 4 to 5 participants. We will come back with friends!
We were preoccupied so I was not able to take a picture of our food.
But here’s what we ordered: Sizzling Sisig for Php 265, Gising Gising for Php 205, Sinigang na Baboy for Php 355, Kare Kare for Php 485, Crispy Pata for Php 595,
Everyone’s faces was plastered with a big smile. Everything tasted so good even the shakes.
One of the more popular food stop at Baguio: Cafe by the Ruins.
It’s a Garden slash forestry slash restaurant. It has a rustic wooden feel to it.
The whole restaurant was busy, it was beaming with people. You have to get listed to be able to seat.
As for me, I ordered the Shrimp and Mango Curry — Php 250.00
Prawns in coconut milk curry. It is served with 7 condiments: hard boiled egg, grated coconut, fried onions, chili, churney, papadums and peanuts.
The dish itself was so good. And I actually expected to be served only with a few pieces of shrimp but to my surprise, I think I ate about 8? and some for him too.
The plating was okay. It was full of color and was far from being dull but the plate was too busy. It had all sorts of things one cannot manage to take in everything at one time.
He ordered the Baguio Bagnet – Php 280.00
It’s a double fried pork belly, it is tenderized in lard, then redried to a crisp. Condiments are Podas Bagoong and tomato relish.
The pork was good. It was tender yet crispy. The only thing we didn’t like was the Bagoong. It’s Baguio Bagnet. Bagnets are supposed to come with Bagoong as its perfect pair.
But the Bagoong served in this dish is home made where the fish is still in its raw form. It does not even compliment the dish. The whole point of eating a Bagnet is to eat it with the
most delicious Bagoong. So without it, the dish was set to be ‘boo-ed’ like a child star actor who grew old.
The waiters were fast but they lack the smile they should be willingly giving to their customers. In addition to that, since they’re the garden type, the place was swarming with flies as
it is an open space.
Though I am not fully satisfied and impressed, I’m still looking forward to trying the other dishes on their menu.
I’ve always been a fan of Greek Food. Therefore, when one finally opened in our favorite street hub, we had to try it. Our first try, they were full so instead, we went to Hiyas – which by the way did not disappoint. Check them out: https://venicedelacruz.com/2014/10/22/eat-kapitolyo-hiyas/
The first thing that caught my eye as I have a thing for ceiling ornaments.
We arrived there around 9:30 in the evening and they were hesitant to take us in because they close at 10 pm.
We both ordered Gyros. He ordered Chicken Gyros for Php 235.
While I ordered Beef Gyros for Php 255. We both didn’t like our gyros. It is extremely packed with greens after greens. There’s not much room left for the meat – chicken and beef. They’re all just vegetables.
You can also order one siding to go with your gyros for Php 150. We ordered fries.
I apologize for the lack of words – as it is equal to my lack of interest in what we ate. Poor choice of restaurant.
