Makati's Best Kept Secret: Restoran Garuda

We've discovered a lot of interesting restaurants when the lockdown eased in 2021. Also, because we missed traveling, we just make it a point to food travel instead.

Garuda is an Indonesian restaurant near the Indonesian embassy in Makati so I guess that makes it super legit. I've been hearing about Garuda for the longest time and been planning to dine there for the longest time but was only able to visit it early this year. I know, I know. 

Luckily, I have an errand nearby and since daughter and I haven't had lunch yet, we decided to eat there instead of going to the mall. 

Happy to see personal favorites Satay & Nasi Goreng, Ayam Goreng, and Beef Rendang on the menu. 

NASI GORENG PACKET. This is a set meal that comes with iced tea. Looking at the photo, you'll think that the serving portion is small but this is quite filling because of the rice. 

AYAM GORENG GARUDA. This is love! Very flavorful also. And highly addictive! 

BEEF RENDANG PACKET. This is another set meal that comes with a drink. The rendang tastes good but this is not for the faint hearted since it is kinda spicy. 

Our first meal at Garuda was so memorable that we went back a few times more, as well as organize a surprise party for hubby's 50th birthday there. The party was on a Sunday so there's not much diners in the area.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow! 

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
