Dezato's Mochi Balls The store is located in Hemady cor E.Rod in Quezon City, it's walking distance from MacDonalds. Actually, I haven't been there yet because we don't frequent the area, not to mention the street is one-way. Luckily, they joined the dessert bazaar in Powerplant Mall. Four pieces of assorted mochi costs P60. Not bad. Tastes like the bilo-bilo from our local ginataan except that mochi is either rolled into chocolate or nuts and sometimes it even has a filling. It's not too sweet either so great for the diet conscious.
I first tasted this cream puff around 3 years ago when I attended my friend's bazaar. Prior to that, i've always been a loyal fan of Dulcinea's caramel cream puffs. Tastes nice although I hate to admit it but my cravings for cream puffs seem to have diminished by now. I can't even finish a whole puff.
Brother's Burger I've discovered this burger joint during the early Y2K. It was introduced by my cousin-in-law who loves food and big meaty burgers. Luckily, the very first Brother's Burger was just a stone throw away from where we used to work. Simply place your order and your burger will be delivered right on your office doorstep. The onion rings tastes divine! Alas, after several years, the quality of the burger (even if it's still delectable) is not at par when I first tasted it. Also, I noticed that they change their bread buns. It used to be a home-made oatmeal bun but nowadays, it's just a regular bun with oatmeal on top. Price is almost the same though so I'm not really complaining. On the other hand, I'd still recommend this place. Good food memories. :)
Sango I always find it difficult to order especially if i know that the food choices are all yummy. Alas, I can't eat more than one burger so I decided on Fish Burger which kinda surprised by friend since I usually crave for meaty burgers. And it tasted so nice (no regrets) and also the honey dew soda is quite refreshing! Not too sweet, just right.
Country Chicken I've been seeing and hearing about Country Chicken for about 3 years now until I finally decided to give it a try. My reason for not trying it sooner was because I'm allergic to chicken (unless its free-range). I went to the CC branch along Benavidez Street and ordered one chicken for take-out. I was a bit surprised that it costs P300 compared to the ones in Shopwise and Hypermart that costs less than P220. Anyways, CC is way bigger than the ones I mentioned. Upon arriving home, I excitedly took my first bite--- it's yummy! It's juicy and tender and flavorful. Now I'm a convert. Can't believe myself that I've wasted 3 years just to taste this chicken.
One day, when a friend and I had nothing better to do but eat breakfast in Binondo, I remembered another friend recommending this siopao from Monteland. After walking around and looking for Monteland (we thought it's a restaurant), some nice Manangs guided us with directions. It turned out to be a bakeshop. The siopao costs P100 and since it's still early when we got there, I was given a frozen siopao. It costs P100 but 2-4 pax can share it depending of course on one's appetite. I forgot to ask for sauce so I can't comment on that. Taste-wise, I like the giant siopao from Emerald Garden along Roxas Boulevard. I find it more flavorful than the one from Monteland. *** I already sliced the siopao in half before I remembered that I still haven't taken a picture of it so it looks "butchered" in the photo. Mea Culpa!
