Exclusive Dinner At Akiko Japanese Restaurant

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

It’s the first weekend since the opening of the huge SM Lanang Premier in the city and just like anybody else who are curious, me and my friends decided to visit the place. As expected, people crowded inside the enormous shopping mall and basically filled all the restaurants that opened on the same day.

With our growling stomach, we decided to head over a much quieter array of restaurants at the car park of the nearby old shopping mall (Victoria Plaza) and opted to have a Japanese inspired dinner.

Hola TJ’s Mexican Grill!

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

Like what I did with the photo above? 😀

Anyway, on a lazy Friday night, we trooped to Westgate and enjoyed one of the most relaxing dinner-booze session I’ve had in a while at the yuppie favorite Tijuana’s Mexican Grill. Actually, Manong’s was filled to the brim when we drove by so we ended up here, which isn’t too bad of a choice. Known more as simply TJ’s, they try to be as authentic as possible–from their menu items down to the furnishings (too bad I don’t have floor photos to show).


You Can’t Go Wrong At Adobo Connection

Adobo Connection, Valero Street, Makati City

Here we are at Adobo Connection’s Valero St., Makati City branch

7,107 Islands. 7,107 Recipes. Adobo Connects Us All. 

That’s Adobo Connection‘s straightforward–but pretty ingenious–slogan. It’s an easy sell, which is why it didn’t take a whole lot of convincing for us to try this new (for us, at least) restaurant. I also have to give it to the two Harvard Business School graduates, who established the restaurant in 2010, for such an interesting logo.  I really love the little bahay kubo on top of the “o.” It’s very Pinoy. 😀

Giving Thai Food Another Go At Jatujak

Sunday, September 9th, 2012

Let’s be clear that I’m not a fan of Thai food. Well, that was until I got to try My Thai a couple of weeks ago. Riding on this minor gastronomical hangover, the boyfriend and I stopped by Jatujak one random night. Honestly, I would’ve never stepped foot here if it wasn’t for the awesome experience we had at My Thai. 😀

The Day I Went to Pho Hoa And Didn’t Have Noodles

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Pho Hoa. Please excuse the quality of thy images. It was an impromptu lunch out so I only brought my pangharabas phone with me.

Pardon my absence from the Patay Gutom radar the past month of August. You see, I willingly abstained from frequent lunch-outs and dinner dates as I was seriously concerned my jeans were close to becoming of maternity size. LOL. All it took however, was a workmate craving noodles and there goes my diet plans down the drain. Oh well. There’s still next month to look forward to.

Last Friday (aka the day my diet was buried and forgotten), a bunch of workmates and I cabbed to Paseo Center just to fulfill a friend’s desire to have Pho Hoa noodles for lunch. Paseo Center is now a far-and-away foodie place for me because I now work in Ayala FGU. Before, Paseo Center was a cartwheel away.
