EAT MAKATI: PLAYGROUND 11


As a self proclaimed foodie, I immediately opened this link:Β 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.)

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! πŸ™‚ It’s always nice to see small cafes in a small neighborhood turn into something!

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.

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.

I loveddd it. ❀ ❀ ❀

EVERYDAY: Bucket Lists


It’s such a small milestone but it represents something big for me. πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚

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.

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

Because it’s friday and we consider it as semi free day because you know whooooo. So we decided to eat out — and I suggested El Chupacabra.

Have you tried any new restaurant around Jupiter? Well I have! I actually forced them to. Haha.

20170130_12035720170130_12040420170130_12112520170130_121134

We were the first and only ones there on a thursday lunch. πŸ™‚

20170130_120655

They have a specific menu for lunch. but the street food is only available 5pm onwards.

20170130_12273120170130_122742

Rhina ordered the Classic Mongolian for Php 225.

20170130_12275220170130_122823

While the three of us ordered the Kimchi Steak and Eggs for Php 225.

It was GOOD. It was not as awesome as Wildflour’s but it’s worth a try. πŸ™‚

And after that fulfillinh salty eggsperience, we head out for some sweets! And this little heaven is tucked on the corner, barely seen. Glad we did!

20160930_20565320160930_205530

There’s an al fresco area – but it was a bit hot. The interiors looked like they have a bar inside. Dessert bar, perhaps.

He ordered for a Missisipi Gelato Pie for Php 250. Its an Oreo Crust with Vanilla and Dark Chocolate Gelato topped with Whipped Cream and Chocolate Sauce. Very, Very, Very Sinful — but all worth it!

image-0-02-06-2aab94b9ec7e715cb62af9dab47e39c3419c62572704a2f1c0ffc3811bd41e00-v

While I ordered a Nutella Bun Ala Mode for Php 200. The Bun was a little off. It wasn’t dry, but it wasn’t moist either. — The only good thing here is the nutella in the middle. But you have to reach the middle first before it gets good though. But — I guess the Icecream makes it good! So I suggest you order this Ala Mode too.

image-0-02-03-417c21efb86461d2582fc25a0d0ab8d41b71c9103c765f6ee592c8adb6120708-v

Yep, we wanted it Al Fresco Style πŸ™‚

EAT MAKATI: SHRIMP BUCKET


Makati Circuit has been continuously growing its name! One by one, stores are already opening and one of it is — Shrimp Bucket!

Straight to our food, shall we?

20160930_19395020160930_194002

We had Deep Fried Baby Squid for Php 215. Not bad for its price. It was really crunchy and the spice was just right — it was powerfully flavorful!

20160930_194318

Fries! because he was avoiding rice.

14608812_10154479517416878_281306667116214339_o

And the Salty Eggsperience for Php 560.Β The Salted Egg Rave reached Shrimp Bucket! For me, there was nothing special on this dish. But the boyfie thinks otherwise. The bucket seems to have 10-12 medium sized shrimps. We didn’t even finish it.

20160915_121352

We’ve been here not once,, not twice but thrice. Third time’s the charm. It’s a miracle. Every single time that we go here, it is swarmed with people. But we got there around 12:10 and not a single table was occupied. Whew. Good thing.

20160915_12124720160915_121118

Self Service type and it can fit about 15 max of people.

20160915_12234920160915_122411

Honey Parmesan Dog for Php 200. Quite a bit okay. Nothing too extravagant and fancy or unique. But it tastes good.

20160915_122615

Sloppy Joes for Php 150. It doesn’t look as appetizing but it’s okay. Mashed beefy goodness.

20160915_122822

Cheeseburger for Php 190. Someone always has to try the Cheeseburger. Right? I just had to. It’s a burger place. How can you not?

20160915_121734

We had good timing on our corner. πŸ™‚

20160903_182935

It’s our first time at Uptown Mall. πŸ™‚ 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)

I’ve been going down this road every time I go to school and it tempts me everytime. It’s a small quaint cafe where you can have a quiet conversation – no doubt.

20160827_131759

It was really small. It can only seat 12 persons inside and about 4 on their veranda. But that’s the good point – for me, at least. The owners were there, and they were very accommodating.

Here’s the menu:

20160827_131903

The boyfriend ordered the Americano for Php 100.Β 

20160827_132027

While I ordered the Latte Gianduja for Php 185Β just because they told me that there’s hazelnut nutella somewhere in there. πŸ˜›

20160827_132712

And I swear by this cookie — I have no idea why the salt makes it better. but man, it does! Chocolate Macadamia for Php 85.Β 

20160827_132311

And ofcourse, my partner in discovering new binge joints and cafes,
