EAT MAKATI: BEAN & YOLK


20160827_140645

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:

The boyfriend ordered the Americano for Php 100. 

20160827_132027

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

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.

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

EAT MAKATI: EL CHUPACABRA


Because we can never get a table past 6pm, we opted to just go there while there’s still a sun above us — at 1 in the afternoon. Haha. And it was better! Since it was not crowded and the crew was still attentive.

20160827_12123020160827_121245

Laid back restaurant with a lot of graffiti on the wall.

20160827_12212620160827_122142

We just had to order the San Francisco Style Lean Pork Sisig Taco for Php 105.  It’s the BOMB. Oh my… I agree. This is their best seller.

20160827_122623

Camarones A la Diabla for Php 155. —- Shrimp never fails but damn, the spices in here failed me. It was so good  but I cannot really take on that much heat in my tongue and lips all at the same time.

20160827_122447

La Cupadita for Php 120. Their signature drink. Which I think they shouldn’t claim as their signature. Why? Because it tastes AWFUL.

EAT MAKATI: WHOLESOME TABLE


It’s not news when I tell you that it’s traffic in Makati. Right? Ergo, Dinner inside the traffic center. Wholesome Table since it’s near his office.

20160819_201043

We ordered for GRILLED CHICKEN CURRY PIZZA for Php 600. It’s new so on the menu so we gave it a try. SO – SO. Edible, but it’s not on top of my list.

20160819_195709

We also ordered for their Truffled Mushroom Pasta for Php 420. I love it, BTW. though from that I remember — Carbonara is better.

20160819_201151

Will see you next time when it’s raining and traffic.

EAT MAKATI: Sunshine Place


Work. Work. Work.

So they had to fetch me and a quick dinner was in store for us — Why? Because this comfy beautiful place closes at 8pm! Imagine that! And we arrived there at about 7:30 in the evening.

EAT MAKATI: CHIHUAHUA


20160604_202101

We’ve been passing this establishment for a long time already. And we finally had the time to try this mexican feast. It’s a self service restaurant. You have to order at the counter.

The order taking process is you choose whether Burrito, Bowl, Tacos or Salad.then you get to pick your main course from Chicken, Beef Picadillo, Pork Carnitas, Steak or Vegetarian.

20160604_20235820160604_202511

Chips and Queso for Php 125. Its definitely a good pastime snack when you’re having a good laugh with your friends.

20160604_203523

We ordered the Chicken or Php 287 and Pork Carnitas for Php 287 too.

20160604_202549

And Margarita Glass for Php 195 each.

20160604_202304

I’d come back for the Nachos but their main star are not something that I would want to order again.

 

 

EAT MAKATI: LIZZY LATTE


Do you know the good thing about trying out new, small cafes? You actually get to see the faces behind this courageous act of setting up a coffee shop in this world full of it.

Spot the lady in the yellow top – She’s liz, the owner of the store, obviously.

20160518_14022820160518_140233-1

Another good thing I noticed is that the cafe is full of artworks made by customers. I wasn’t able to take a good shot of it since well – owner might think I’m some kind of lunatic trying to capture every corner of the store. That’s one. — Two, it felt like the neighborhood type of cafe where owner and employees are close – genuine and seems to know the people who comes in.

20160518_14143720160518_141503

Lazy Cake for Php 80. It has some texture and sweetness to it. But for those who love to get some treat after a meal but are too sugar conscious, you can try this. It’s not too sweet but enough to cleanse your palate of kebabs or what not.

20160518_141656

I also ordered a Latte for Php 120. It was good, typical latte.

13245236_1736463539934242_2924218980531729372_n

The ambiance was actually really homey. It’s the place where you can actually read a good book and finish it, have real intimate conversations with loved ones and friends or just be with yourself and finish a good cup of coffee – which is what one really needs. right?

Check them out. — They have been holding small events every weekend.

CHECK OUT LIZZY LATTE

EVERYDAY: Japanese Buffet


I’m not even sure what did this guy went through that day to actually crave a Korean Buffet – I’ll never know. But I dare not complain when we’re talking about tempuras (yes. plural). This makes me so happy. Haha. Apart from the fact that I had to finish a Financial Analysis for my Finman Final Paper.

But still, fat as a mother pig.

EAT MAKATI: The Wholesome Table


20160107_130221

I’ve been meaning to try this restaurant for quite some time already. But intentionally been postponing it because the prices are a bit expensive. BTW, Interiors are more than okay. 🙂 They have a forest – garden like vibe.

20160107_13103820160107_131055

Carbonara Solo – Php 440. An italian classic spaghetti tossed in a free range egg and cheese sauce and topped with cured pork belly. You might well be on your way to the restaurant by this time. I cannot even begin to tell you how freakin’ly good this dish is! From the way it smelled to its creamy creamy white goodness to the mushroom and cheese toppings.

20160107_13062120160107_130609

Meatloaf – Php 620. Thick slices of home made meatloaf served with creamy, organic mashed potatoes topped with gravy and bacon. I can’t say it’s good. I’m not the biggest fan of meatloaf. Though, serving size wise — it can be shared by two already.

20160107_13100720160107_133928

Theb boyfriend definitely loves the place! Will come back to try the other dishes!
