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!

EVERYDAY: Gringo with J1


Because sometimes all a girl needs is a quiet talk with her friends, a beer in their hand and some frankness and laughter combined.

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: SMOKEYARD


Poblacion Crawl it is! Now trying Smokeyard in Poblacion!

20170516_12413820170516_12423320170516_124429

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

20170516_12473620170516_124746

It was deadly satisfying! Pulled Pork was tasty and filling at the same time and was affordable too.

20170516_125046

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.

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: STAPLE AND PERK BAKERY


We surprisingly found this quaint new café in the not so near neighborhood in Makati. This space has everything that I’m looking for! : Actual food (not just pastries), spacious, bright, quiet, with available plugs and let’s not forget —- Instagrammable Place! 😀

20170429_12242120170429_12282120170429_123102

Walls are filled with paintings, quotes and other artworks that makes it instagrammable.

We ordered the following;

Chicken Japanese Mayo for Php 180

20170429_12391120170429_123933

This was the boyfriend’s order so I didn’t want to eat a lot of it, but I did. It was yum-eh. I think the Japanese Mayo pulled this one off.

I wanted to order their Bacon and Cheese Flatbread but unfortunately, they ran out of bacon that day so I ended up ordering the Roasted Chicken Flatbread which turned out to be really good as well.

The Roasted Chicken Flatbread is for Php 200

20170429_12424620170429_124156

Pretty much enjoyed my stay here. It would have been better if I was able to stay longer and get some work done. 🙂

Snapshots that day with the boyfriend:

EVERYDAY: 3 of 2s


Remember the last time I saw Amyll? We planned to meet the guy who made her nervous, sick and strangley happy at the same time. 🙂 And he finally arrived last 19th! This dinner was planned way ahead of his flight. 😀

Dinner at All4u in Century City Mall.

20170427_212403

BABOY, INDEED. Headed out for some coffee at I’m Hotel after.

Nice to meet you, xtian! and all your seriousness. 😀 Happy for you, Pine! ❤

EAT MAKATI: PLAYGROUND 11


As a self proclaimed foodie, I immediately opened this link: http://booky-wordpress-staging.us-east-1.elasticbeanstalk.com/blog/new-unique-poblacion/

and ofcourse with excitement, I really wanted to try everything on the list as soon as possible. So, I asked my judey if we can. and he willingly said yes. (thank god he wanted icecream after dinner.)

20170324_20554820170324_20252020170324_205624

The place is near A-Venue Mall. You’ll probably miss it so better just look for this tarp outside their store. They don’t really have an actual signage yet.

20170324_20274520170324_20275020170324_205418

Everything is done in their kitchen! 🙂 It’s always nice to see small cafes in a small neighborhood turn into something!

20170324_20264620170324_20365120170324_20341020170324_202646

We finally decided to try Chocnut Banoffee and Nutella Mangga. ❤

Its amazing how it’s homemade. right? Chocnut Banoffee really tasted like banoffee pie! There were no odd tastes. It was not too sweet either. The Nutella Mangga does not really tastes like nutella enough. The Mango flavor I think overpowers the chocolate flavor. Nonetheless, it’s worth the try. Plus, the owner and staff were really nice.

EAT MAKATI: ALL4U UNLIMITED GRILL & SHABU SHABU


It seems like all we do is eat. Might as well eat something heavenly right? Worth the calories and peso!

This Unlimited Grill and Shabu Shabu is only Php 699 per head. This meal already gives you access to unlimited beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, noodles, rice and drinks. WORTH YOUR BUCKS, I tell you!

20170324_192811

Pork & Shrimp Laksa for Php 245 with Crispy Tofu, Chili Oil, Boiled Egg and Sesame Buchi. I lovedddd this! The consistency was thick which I assume was made from scratch rather than just powder. The taste was really strong.

image-0-02-06-21e24d93295a2e9e1be352c1611eed23e9d1466e85efa564b85134d635c144f2-V

General P’s Chicken for Php 220 – Battered Chicken, peanuts and Orange Soy. It was alright. Nothing like Recipe’s. 🙂

Crispy Baby Squid for Php 180 – Plum Glaze, Chilis, Fried Dilis and Spiced Peanuts. The love was crazy about the shrimps.

20170310_18511820170310_185518

I loveddd it. ❤ ❤ ❤

EVERYDAY: Bucket Lists


It’s such a small milestone but it represents something big for me. 😀 I’ve been scared all my life to ever eat alone. I’d rather not eat and go hungry than eat alone. But here I am now, eating adobo flakes ALONE in Early Bird Breakfast Club. 🙂 And I wasn’t even ashamed or uncomfortable.

20170224_131213

And I also discovered a Zoo Cafe in Makati. I finally was able to try it. 🙂

20170224_145802

EAT MAKATI: DESSERT KITCHEN


Relatively new but not so new. This semi-gem is found in powerplant mall.

We ordered the Winter of Love for Php 168.

image-0-02-06-c963b0e7a10adf18bfe61a65c8ed3e9d724cda30ba03373d7618347341ab7eab-V

and the Mango Fever for Php 188.

I’m not quite sure if I was not in the mood for this but I didn’t like it. It wasn’t awful but it was really just so-so. Vanilla Icecream with rice crispies?

image-0-02-06-dd79a24d413cb22fd8f52c15b2ef6c1fe5be264635a75c28da06a651df07f8ad-V

Surely, I will not be the one to force him to eat here again.
