EAT BGC: PASTO


He wanted wine, and wine we had. It’s already a given that we have to eat pasta so we head to Pasto. There were no customers so we happily chose a seat next to the window.

Ghamberi Pasta – Php 265

IT’s an olive oil based fetuccine with garlic sauteed shrimps, asparagus spears and fresh diced tomatoes. 

The pasta wasn’t dry but i think it lacked a bit of taste. I also asked for additional parmesan, and they obliged with no additional charge. I was happy about that. 🙂 

Margherita Pizza – Php 215

Classic italian combination of fresh tomatoes, mozarella and basil. 

Hmm. It’s okay. It’s how you’d imagine a margherita pizza should be but there was no oomph.

Lamadoro Bianco 

Straw yellow color with golden reflections , intense aroma, fruity with citrus notes.

I probably had high expectations of the place thus leaving me with regret. 

Don’t be mistaken. The food and service is okay. But I just expected more. 

EAT MAKATI: WHITEBRASS


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

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

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.

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.

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

EAT SUBIC: XTREMELY XPRESSO CAFE


The bestfriend brought me here! I have to admit, being a foodie (I’d like to think so) that I am, I have not heard of this. 20160525_141000

And the menu? It was pretty hard to pick from all the choices.

20160525_141701

So what did we get?

20160525_142542

Creamy Mushroom Soup for Php 120 and Seafood Cream Soup for Php 140. The Mushroom soup was so creamy you’d think that it was your Main Course! And it has bits and pieces which I really liked. The size was also big – it can be shared by two.

20160525_142836

Shrimp Scampi Linguine for Php 200. This was her order. This is red sauce so you’d be able to predict that this is not mine.

20160525_142848

Truffle Cream Spaghetti for Php 240. I was torn between this and my all time safe place, Carbonara. But I just had to try this. It’s really good. It was creamy and very tasty though it had nothing but mushrooms – it was pretty good.

20160525_142932

Both pasta sizes were good, my blue lemonade is thirst killer, soup were A-Okay.

Overall, I loved it here. 😀

My lunch, tray cotour : Marguerite. — Classic Clubhouse sandwich with Shrimp Pesto pasta. :)) Yeyyyy. Both are only Php 250. It was worth it. It comes with a tall glass drink with (Four Seasons or Iced Tea) 😀 Plus, an appetizer of  bread sticks with mango puree and a piece of chocolate dessert! .:D

I missed spending time with her, alone. What a fulfilling lunch.:D
