EAT ALABANG: JUST THAI


It seems like I’ve been eating thai food pretty constant. Ain’t it? No complaints though.

Crispy Catfish Salad is simply THE BOMB. Always loved this one. ❤

Chicken Noodle Soup for Php 220 – I wasn’t able to try this but according to my sister, it works pretty well for her. 🙂

2017_0417_14420600

EAT TAGAYTAY: LIME & BASIL


It’s our second time in here after about 2 years? But it’s always a good start. ❤ Let me just warn you that everything you are about to see is SO DAMN BLISSFULLY GOOD.

2017_0226_144110002017_0226_14412100

Fresh Spring Roll at Php 270 – Rolled herbs, carrot, cabbage, tofu, noodles with sweet chili relish. I sincerely cannot get enough of this. I can eat this whole damn thing and I’d still want more. The sauce pushes the oomph level.

2017_0226_144655002017_0226_14470300

Pad Thai at Php 350 I am not the most optimistic receiver of Pad Thai but the crispiness of this one pulls it off.

2017_0226_145046002017_0226_14505400

2017_0226_145103002017_0226_14510500

Tom Yum Goong at Php 410 – Hot and Sour Shrimps. I’m actually surprised that it’s not red. But it’s just as good. 🙂

2017_0226_145201002017_0226_14523000 Kaprao Nua at Php 410 – Stir fried beef in holy basil – It was really tender. It’s not woah but it’s not bad either.

2017_0226_15112800

Salt Crusted Tilapia at Php 450 – This one is TOO damn salty. I know this is supposed to be but it’s at a level where it fuckin hurts your tongue and your whole mouth.

2017_0226_145145002017_0226_14515000

Catfish Fried Rice at Php 380 We actually ordered Bagoong Rice too.

2017_0226_153829002017_0226_15145300

Lime and Basil is ❤

 

EAT MAKATI: 59C


I think this is our first time to try a restaurant not in Poblacion and I guess it’s safe to say, Good Job! 😀 This one is a good find!

20180510_132653(0)

The restaurant has a Brunchfast menu that is available all day and they also have your Build your own Plate for those who want their meals a little more specific to their taste. Here’s what we ordered:

I have no idea why 4 of us ordered the same food – Chicken Burrito at Php 260 – Yellow Rice, Egg, Sesame Slaw, Nacho, Sour Cream and Hot Sauce.

20180510_125036

The upside? It was a good choice. Each of them liked what they had on their plates.

Crispy Pork Belly at Php 300 – Fried Rice, Kropek, Honey Hoisin and Greens

20180510_125805

It has enough viand and meat was bite size. It’s the type where you would want more.

59c Chicken Tausi Asian Goreng – Php 280 – Fried Rice, Siomai, Fried Egg, Crispy Dilis, Peanuts and Kropek

20180510_130015

Let me just say it out there that it was pretty delicious although there is some room for improvement. One, they should ask how customers want their eggs. I’d like mine scrambled. I ended up giving my egg away. :/ Two, they did not serve siomai – it was a dumpling. If kitchen ran out, they should disclose it to the customer. Third, I know the chicken is cooked in Tausi but I’d prefer to have my chicken stay longer in the pan. It was a bit pale. Fourth, just my own preference (No Green Peas please and no cornick).

Power Bowl at Php 240 – Fried Rice, Seasonal vegetables and Fried Egg

20180510_130316

Much like my Asian Goreng, this one has the same rice with veggies mixed in there too. My officemate like it.

Overall? I am definitely coming back. ❤

 

 

EAT MAKATI: Hummus Elijah


Disclaimer: I’ve never eaten hummus before, I’m not an expert and I particularly am not fond of the food.. BUT I wanted to try. Heyyy, at least give me that. okay?

The space was a bit cramped and dark but it is very popular to foreigners. I think we were the only Filipinos eating there.

First off, I wanted a safe order so I tried the Hummus Elijah for I thought it’s a remarkable dish since it’s their signature.

20180502_122338 Hummus Elijah at Php 250 – Hummus with Tahini, Chicken Peas, Olive Oil, Herbs and Spices. For me, it was bland and so ordinary. It’s not even good (like you’ve placed butter on bread, and it’s not even butter! After my third bite, I said, Nah. I am not eating this. Blah. Don’t order this.

20180502_122853 Shakshuka at Php 200 – 2 eggs cooked in thick tomato sauce. This is slightly a bit better. I’m not a tomato person but the tomato saved this dish.

20180502_123318

Hamshuka at Php 290 – Hummus + Shakshuka with Spicy Sauce and Tahini

Out of the three dishes that we tried, this is probably the best. It’s not a winner but to compare, it’s the most decent one and a dish that I can probably finish.

BTW, All of the dishes are served with 2 Pita Breads.

20180502_122434

I’m getting the hang of Fake Smile. I managed to put on one when all I can think about is how I wasted my Php 250 for something I did not enjoy. Never again.

EAT MAKATI: WHITEBRASS


Just a couple of steps from my office, you’ll see whitebrass in the streets of Jupiter.

DSCF0470DSCF0471

Pork Jowl Crisps (Php 150) – Deep Fried Pork – Can you imagine small portions of bagnet? Well, try this one and you’ll find out. ❤

DSCF0465DSCF0466 BBQ Chicken (Php 250)Grilled Chicken Fillet / Calamansi based BBQ with Roasted Garlic Rice. This one is a keeper. ❤ I liked this dish.

DSCF0468DSCF0469

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.

EAT BF: RAMEN KURODA


When I was in the middle of my Strama Class, most weekends were spent at each other’s houses – writing my paper, editing my powerpoint, learning my financials and so on.. I’m just really grateful how helpful and understanding the boyfriend is when it comes to our dates — which is mostly spent in coffee shops with a laptop in tow.

So, one particular saturday – spent at my house doing strama — we decided to dine out for dinner at BF — Ramen Kuroda.

See their menu:

ramen kuroda

The boyfriend ordered the Gyoza + Aka Ramen for Php 320 since he likes the Gyoza.

20170819_183148(0)

While I, having no choice but to order the Teriyaki + Shiro Set for Php 320

20170819_183217

Since it’s so practical to order the Set Menu, we did. If you are planning to treat others, Ramen Kuroda is practical. 😀

EAT MAKATI: DONG WON


If you’re looking for a Korean Restaurant, there’s one along Jupiter Street right around the corner — DONG WON. It’s a meat shop slash restaurant. It smells a bit funky since the fresh meat is also where everyone dines.

20170811_21282720170811_212830

A little catching up with the bestfriend and the boyfriend.

EVERYDAY: FAMILY LUNCH


Now that my sister has her own house, it’s very seldom that we eat together. & too sad that the only one missing is the boyfriend. —- 7th wheeler for lunch

20170730_121954

EVERYDAY: Lunchbowls


My go – to Lunchout Idea! — Kimchi Rice with Wagyu Cubes!! Oh my GOD. This is the kind of food you crave for. ❤ ❤ ❤

20170721_144549

EAT MAKATI: WHISK


This is not on my list — but the boyfriend was quick to suggest this (which happens rarely). Thus, I said yes immediately. 😛

20170708_131853

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

20170708_124543

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.

20170708_124634

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!

20170708_130102

EAT BF: SAMGYUPSAL HOUSE


There’s a new Korean Restaurant along the crowded Aguirre!

20170610_215506

We ordered Ala Carte Plain Samgyupsal for Php 250 and Seoul Soy Sauce for Php 280. I prefer the plain one. The Seoul Soy Samgyupsal was too salty.

20170610_21530920170610_215314

And was FULL. I only ate the plain ones. ❤

20170610_214843

EAT MAKATI: KITE KEBAB


We managed to sneak out during our Lunch Period. 🙂 Poblacion again.

20170608_115858

Check out their menu!

20170608_120749_00120170608_120759

20170608_123249

EAT MAKATI: DONNA DONNA


I wanted for him to try Matgalne where my friends and I ate once. However, upon reaching the place,  there was no available table, waiters were not accommodating and it was chaos.

We ended up trying this Korean, Donna Donna instead which is just across I’m Hotel.

20170603_122245

We just ordered Samgyupsal for Php 330 and 2 rice.

20170603_12482520170603_130447

We wanted to try Soju!! But we didn’t know that this is Vodka. So we ended up drinking hard liquor at Noon.

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.

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 – 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!

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.

EAT MAKATI: NICE TWO MEAT U


This is one of those rare times that ‘le boyfriend discovers something new. 😛

20170310_18511820170310_185518

The place was spacious and had enough room for the guests and more.

Complimentaries:
