I think I’m the only one here who hasn’t tried Brooklyn Pizza until last last Saturday. I subliminally insisted the boyfriend and a friend to dine here after ignoring Brooklyn Pizza’s quaint little corner in Alabang Town Center for so many years.
The 24th of December is definitely not a holiday here in Kuwait so most of us Filipinos will be having our Christmas “Noche Buena” at work or right after we finish our work.
Me and my workmates decided to dine out instead of cooking our special Christmas dinner since we’ll all be going home late from work. It’s freezing cold outside which makes eating by the seaside after getting some takeaways not a good idea.
We decided to have it in one of the semi-fine dining restaurants along Salem Al Mubarak Street, specifically at the Laila Gallery. It’s called Ruby Tuesday and since Christmas eve falls on Tuesday this year, the place is just so perfect.
Working in Kuwait is a whole new experience that I’ve been enjoying at the moment. The blogger side of me has been always desiring to share my food trips in this Arab country where I thought it would more on the Mediterranean cuisines. However, this small yet oil-rich country has more to offer. It is a place wherein various kinds of cuisines can be experienced and one of which is their Fusion Japanese Restaurant.
So far, the restaurant has two branches but the one located near the famous Kuwait Towers has become the hub of Filipinos who have been longing for Japanese food as well as those locals who definitely want to try something new.
DADS Ultimate Buffet is perhaps one of the few restaurants in the Philippines that offer authentic Filipino, American, and Japanese cooking. Most of the time, restaurants that offer a variety of cuisines don’t succeed because they fail to produce signature dishes that will make the restaurant well-known. However, DADS Ultimate Buffet has been in operation since the 90s and its wide variety of scrumptious, novel dishes are still being appreciated by the people and professional food journalists alike. To the uninitiated, DADS Ultimate Buffet is a fusion of 3 of the best restaurants in Manila. It serves Filipino, American, and Japanese dishes. With its great-tasting food, more than 200 dishes to choose from, and a price that’s not unreasonable for an eat-all-you-can scenario, DADS Ultimate Buffet is every connoisseur’s escape to a world of flavors.

I got a gift certificate from Manang’s Chicken in the mail today. After I got over the excitement of actually being able to touch my correspondence, I got all worked up again thinking of a decent-sized deep-fried pork chop sitting beside a cup of white rice that is supposedly all mine – for free! I gave the paper a cursory glance to assure myself that I’m not being taken for a ride, and then heeded the lure of flavorful meat, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, and starch. Off I went to Glorietta 4, braving Makati traffic on a busy Saturday afternoon in this bipolar weather. I figured even with the extortionate parking fee, I’m still saving money because of the free lunch. Besides, I needed a new pen.
