March 8th, 2013

xin wang

Just like what my title suggested, my recent visit to Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe wasn’t my first time. My first experience wasn’t here was pretty disappointing and I had no plans of returning here. The boyfriend, however, thought that we should give it another go.

Comfort Food at My Thai

March 2nd, 2013

Chicken Satay

My Thai is definitely one of our go-to restaurants for yummy yet affordable food whenever we’re in Greenbelt. It’s unassuming simplicity, no-fuss presentation, and homey flavors are just some of the factors that made us love their menu. As I’m out of work these days, I trooped to Makati and met up with the boyfriend and some friends.

I don’t do full meals at coffee shops. Well, that would be my typical answer if someone asks me to have lunch or dinner at a coffee shop. Breakfast, of course, is a different story. But the boyfriend and I had no choice when we had to run an errand around lunchtime in Makati.

Quick Eat: Almon Marina’s Fillet Mignon and Roast Beef

December 30th, 2012

Almon Marina's Fillet Mignon and Roast Beef

Almon Marina is far from being pricey, but for some reason, it has always intimated me. Yes, I don’t understand how a simple sandwich bar and deli could do that to me, but yeah, that’s that. Anyway, of the few times I’ve been to Almon Marina, I usually stick to pasta.

Out with the boyfriend one night, I veered away from this normality and dived into their plates of Fillet Mignon and Roast Beef.
