Foggy Breakfast

Manila's been super hot lately so when C invited me for a breakfast date at Bag of Beans, I happily said yes. Luck was with with since there's no traffic on our southbound journey until we reached Sta Rosa exit. Ugh! And since we both need to be back in Manila by 12nn to fetch the kids, we decided to head back where we came from... uh oh! Luckily (again), she remembered Batino exit. So off we drove again, farther south. ....







Thick fog greeted us in the high lands! The one on the photo reminds me of a scary movie. Or if I allow my imagination to run wild, zombies would suddenly attack us.



Luckily, the sky was a bit clear (although very chilly) by the time we arrived at Bag of Beans (Rotonda Branch). We would've loved to sit al fresco but we don't want to freeze to death. Just took some photos of the lake before going back inside. Wasn't able to wear my pink shawl. :(



And because we are really, really cold, we welcomed the hot mugs of hot chocolate. Drinking hot cocoa in Tagaytay or Baguio is l-o-v-e. I would've preferred my hot chocolate less sweeter but its okay. No complaints. I guess almost every occupied table had a mug or two or three of hot chocolate. :)



Grilled Cheese and Fries. The bread shrunk in size but still tastes good. However, it wasn't that hot anymore when it was served to us. I even called the waiter's attention because the table next to ours got their food first even if we arrived earlier. Bad! But we let it pass since we got sidetracked and had a bread-buying-spree from their bakeshop. Think cinammon rolls, raisin bread, garlic sticks and biscocho. Yum!




Forgot the name. C said its okay. But I love the eggs at UCC so I know I won't be ordering it at Bag of Beans.



The bread. Lovely, freshly baked breads.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
