Torta De Argao

After our Dumaguete trip, we were supposed to go straight to Cebu City but since Tita N and Tita M joined our trip, they convinced me that a short stop to Argao to visit the church and museum won't change our schedule drastically. O-kay.


Taalena

One fine weekend, we got invited by hubby's friend to join his family for an overnight fun in Tagaytay. We stayed at a farm somewhere in Alfonso-Mendez boundary. The following day was spent visiting the farm and a trip to the highlands. Got hungry afterwards and ended up in Taalena. Was suppose to eat at Mahogany Market but its still a long way off. Glad that we chose Taalena.


Crispy Pata. A Filipino dining experience is not complete without crispy pata. Yummy!





Bulalo. Not bad. But I prefer the ones at Mahogany Market. Maybe its the ambiance? ;)




Kare Kare. Its okay and tastes good. But it is so orange-y.




Crispy Tawilis. Must-have when dining in Tagaytay.




Fresh Fruit Platter. I love the colors!


Mercado

Mercado is one of the restaurants inside Resorts World in Pasay City. It is a buffet restaurant with delectable spread. Also, it is very affordable compared to hotel buffets.

















The food was excellent. The resto was serving a great spread of Filipino dishes that night that includes kalderetang kambing. Meeeeeeeeeeeeh!


Note: A few years ago, a friend invited me and hubby to have lunch at the newly opened Mercado. Although the choices that time were not that plentiful, we still manage to savor every bite. And yes, I love the ka-ching, ka-ching background music. ;)

Pepper Steak







The food tastes great. Not to mention that everything is served in a hotplate so you'll be eating your food pipping hot! Hubby and daughter loves the salmon plate. :)

We love the ambiance at Powerplant Mall compared with Shangri-La Plaza's.
Dampa Farmers

Once in a while when we happen to be in Cubao and can't think of a restaurant, we'd head off to Farmers market to buy some seafood (yes, I love going to the market) and then bring it to the "dampa" section where you can choose from several "paluto" restos. We always end up at S-I-S, I don't know why. 

Kilawing Tanigue. Hubby and I love this! 



Calamares. Another favorite. Daughter loves this so much that we always make sure that to buy some extra for her take-home!



Sinigang na Hipon. A meal won't be complete without soup. Alas, even if it tastes good, they use powdered sinigang mix. Oh wells!


Sango

Went on a pre-midnight snack date with hubby at Sango Tomas Morato.




I ordered the kiddie burger meal. I still can't finish it by myself. The patty was flavorful - check! The bread was soft and tasted new - check! The fries was not oily - check!



Milk tea's quite good although I would've love it more if its colder.


I was given a tiny rabbit origami afterwards. Love the bunny!!!

Chimay Beer


In the Philippines, "Chimay" or "Tsimay" refers to househelp but "Chimay is an authentic Trappist beer. That means that it is brewed within the walls of a Trappist monastery under the control and responsibility of the community of monks, and whose revenue is devoted to social service." source: http://www.chimay.com/en/en.html?IDC=27

Saw these bottles when I went to the grocery earlier. Wonder how it tastes like?

La Creperie

La Creperie
Daughter said that she can eat here all day. I feel the same way, too!

Cafeteria Verde

This is a sister-company of Big Chill (fruit shake bar). The resto serves vegetarian food that tastes great and at an affordable price, too. I would've love to sample the other dishes soon. Promise.


Located at the 3rd Floor of Robinsons, Galleria


I ordered the sandwich meal that costs P99.00
