If you want to pig out, if you’re celebrating something – then this si definitely the place. Finished our dinner with stomachs about to burst open.

 

EAT KAPITOLYO: LOCAVORE


If you happen to be a Kapitolyo Fan just like us, then you would know how hot Locavore is. right?
Locavore is located in the not so popular side streets. 20160213_173653

What else to order besides the famous Sizzling Sinigang na Baboy for Php 475.
Beef short ribs, sauteed french beans, sampaloc gravy and garlic confit.
20160213_174412

It was superb with a triple okay hand sign if I actually have three hands. It had no soup, obviously. It was placed in a sizzling plate. But there are remnants of ‘sauce’ which absolutely tasted like an actual SINIGANG. If you’re not convinced so far, then let me put it out there. The vegetables were crispy. The meat was tender. Need I say more?

Aside from that, we also ordered Street Food Platter for Php 180.00
Fishball, Squidball, Kikiam, Kwek-kwek served with Manon’g sauce, sweet chili and honey vinegar.

There’s not much to say. As if there are really any difference with street foods. There’s none.
Except that I like this one because the squid balls was definitely not reheated – it still had its crisp.

And ofcourse he had to order a chicken dish.
Mac’s Boneless Fried Chicken for Php 220.00
House special glazed boneless fried chicken.

Glazed Chicken. Surprisingly, I actually liked this dish. Their mix of marinated spices was so good.
The size was monstrous.

All in all, I LOVE LOCAVORE.
I need to try the rest of the dishes. I’ll bring my family here. Until next time, Locavore!

EAT: BAD BIRD


We finally tried Bad Bird! Yehey! Come to think of it, he was as much as excited as I am to try this!

Bad Bird is located in the Hole in the Wall group of small restaurants in Century Mall in Makati.

I wasn’t able to take a picture of the store itself as the line was too long. It seems a lot of people are eager to try this or they might probably be going back for their second, third or fourth time already. So here’s what we ordered.

IMG_3423 IMG_3434

Fried Chicken Plates – Dirty Rice – Php 320 The rice was mixed with bacon, chicken liver, tamago, kimchi and bonito flakes. I was hesitant at first since there was chicken liver. But the rice was good! It definitely compliments the chicken.

IMG_3427 IMG_3431  Fried Chicken Plate – Waffle Plate – Php 290 Oh my goodness! I don’t know if it was the butter or what. But the waffle is G – DOUBLE O – D, GOOD.

IMG_3437Beside the Bad Bird, are a stand full of hand crafted beers in a bottle. It was expensive though. It costs about Php 220 for a bottle. We just wanted to try. I opted for this Summer Session, which has a sweet taste to it but you can still taste the hint of the beer. While Jude ordered a beer concocted with a mix of orange. It was sweet too. But I would recommend the Summer Session better.

All in All, the Bad Bird is definitely not a Bad Choice. The Chicken was filled with so much flavor. The crispiness was right on point. :))

EAT BF: CAFE ALEZON


Thank God for Facebook and Thank God for Social Media. While I was scanning my news feed, I came across this shared post: If you love books, blah blah. Now, you see, books and coffee — All me.

And when I saw a Holiday, bam! I dragged the Jude with me.

IMG_9883 IMG_9885 IMG_9886

Would you look at homey and how comforting the place looks?:))) Such a nice backdrop to everything in every corner. I love, love, love how the owners designed the place.

IMG_9890 IMG_9891

Since it’s our first time, We didn’t actually know what was good. The owner, who is so pleasant and amicable in every way told us that it was their pizzas that was the best seller. 😀

IMG_9893

Turkish Coffee – First time to try it. It tasted different – even Judey who loves brewed coffee. I don’t know much about coffee but to me it tasted more like a tea, it has a sweet remnants.

IMG_9896

Cappuccino – It was a bit on the strong side. I’m on the sweet grass – therefore, this is not for me.IMG_9897

But this pizza, you can never go wrong with their All Meat Pizza. The size was huge but no worries, it’s super thin. We almost finished everything. We only held out for so long since we had another lunch to go to. I suggest you order their pizza. :))

This can definitely go up to my study places. 😀 I’ll be coming back!

20131020-184152.jpg
Okay, I have to say. Just so you won’t waste your time: Don’t go during the day.
At the opposite end of the place, there’s a stage where I suppose all the activities happen. They have couches and woods.

20131020-184600.jpg
On the other side is where this dinosaur stands where the buffet is served and where the food is being cooked.

20131020-184828.jpg
Giant movie characters also surround the place like this one. My love with Ironman. They also have Ranger, Batman and Spiderman.

20131020-185411.jpg
Quadruplets! While waiting for the other two.

20131020-185509.jpg
My awesome drink. Sour Mix Php 175

20131020-185730.jpg
Tequila Sunrise Php 175 It doesn’t even taste like alcohol.(((: it only tastes orangey.

20131020-185917.jpg
Hollywood Boulevard Php 420 It’s composed of chili poppers, shrimp popcorn, onion rings and calamari served with three dips.

20131020-190107.jpg
