A Mangan Saturdate

Mangan Restaurant

I’ve passed by Mangan so many times when I’m in MOA, but was never really enticed to walk in, grab a seat and eat away. Actually, I secretly stay away from Filipino restaurants because that’s what I/we eat at home anyway. 😀 It’s a shallow excuse, I know.

But yesterday, while the boyfriend and I were waiting for someone to deliver a pair of sneakers for him, I saw Mangan and quickly blurted out “dito na lang tayo kumain.” I actually had to walk into the restaurant by myself and order for the two of us because the person we were supposed to meet up with was obviously taking baby steps to the meeting place. 😀

Breakfast At Buddy’s: Pancit Lucban & Longganisang Lucban

May 12th, 2012


I don’t usually eat breakfast because basically I’m not a morning person. Most of the time I wake up at around 11am and anything I’d eat during that time won’t be called breakfast anymore. However, today is no ordinary day. I woke in a place located in one of the busy streets of Makati and everyone’s waking up early. In as much as I want to stay in bed, the noise of the vehicles outside won’t be a nice lullaby.

I don’t know how to roam around Makati so I just tagged along with my friend as we roam around the city. We stopped at The Link and decided to eat our breakfast at Buddy’s. I found out that the place was originally from Lucban, Quezon.

Welcome back, Green Tomato!

April 30th, 2012

Imagine my surprise when I saw my workmate walking up to our table at the GT Tower with this tray and a big plate of pasta. Immediately, I asked where he bought his lunch ’cause it was an unfamiliar dish. We’ve been dining far too often there, obviously, that’s why. 😀

The second he mentioned Green Tomato, I flipped out in excitement.

Good Times at Healthy Grounds Cafe

April 28th, 2012

Oh, did my title sound like Mo Twister’s show? Erm, just for the record, I am not copying him. 😀 Okay, moving on to this awesome cafe! There aren’t that many Cavite-based restaurants being blogged right now that’s why I’m happy (and eager) to be writing this piece.

Friday’s, I’m In Love

April 23rd, 2012

Friday’s is one of those many restaurants that I avoid simply because I tend to overindulge whenever I’m here. Food is always great here (so are the Mojitos!) so I usually lose all sense of control, forget about my diet and feel so terribly bad after. In fact, the last time I dined at Friday’s was with my best friend–some two years ago. Yes, it has been that long.

It was one fateful Tuesday however, when the boyfriend and I found ourselves in the comfortable booth seats of Friday’s. Wow that sounded dramatic. Too dramatic. 😀
