Lazy Dates at The Old Spaghetti House

The Old Spaghetti House in Festival Mall

The boyfriend and I just got back from a quick R&R in Tagaytay but we found ourselves battling against the throngs of “southern-ers” flocking to Festival Mall because of the sale. Clearly, we were in the most uncomfortable location ever because we were carrying such heavy bags. Tired, hungry and frazzled, I quickly blurted out “TOSH!” when the boyfriend asked where I wanted to eat.

The un-marinara like Seafood Marinara

I’ve always liked the TOSH ambiance. It’s relaxed and uncomplicated dining. The boyfriend and I frequent this restaurant so I went with one of my menu favorites, the Seafood Marinara. I, however, thought it didn’t taste as good as the ones I previously had in other branches.

The shrimps, squid, mussels and clams were virtually nonexistent. Even toddlers won’t feel the least bit full with such small pieces. Drat. Why is everything getting so expensive yet they’re scrimping on the ingredients?? :/

US Sizzling Burgersteak with Pepper Gravy

The meat-loving boyfriend had the US Sizzling Burgersteak with Pepper Gravy. I hope I could one day devour a plate of this and not feel guily for doing such. The burgersteak looks so good.

Dessert Trio

The boyfriend’s parents and little sister jonied us for lunch-slash-merienda where they had this dessert trio. I liked the mud pie the most. The one in the center tastes just like maruya! The one on the left is an Oreo-battered cookie, which is too sweet for me. Now that I think about it, it doesn’t look like a “cookie” noh? It looks more like a ball of Oreo.

I forgot the name! If you know the name, leave a comment! šŸ™‚

Then this mouthwatering dessert came on a sizzling plate. Underneath that ice cream is a chocolate chip cookie. You have to lift the cookie off the plate before you end up with a toasted cookie. Haha. The boyfriend’s little sister had such a hard time “scraping” off the cookie.Ā I didn’t think TOSH desserts were any good, but apparently they are! I’m definitely ordering dessert next time. šŸ˜€
