Joe Satriani - I believe

2011 has been one tough year. Not to sound like I wear rose-colored glasses when I think about what the next year will be like, all I know is to hope.

What we had:

The Missus got the healthy plate. Food included the following: Classic Chicken (your choice of part), a serving of fresh fruits, all vegetable salad - solo, 1 muffin and a glass of lite ice tea. This plate was priced at Php185.

I had the Grilled American BBQ plate (photo above). My food included Grilled chicken fillet, java rice, a muffin and cheesy garlic potatoes. This plate was priced at Php175.

We then ordered 4 pieces of muffin for Php60 and since my meal did not include drinks, I ordered a glass of ice tea for Php40.

The total of our meal: Php460. Another great food find which was priced for less than Php500!

The 500 Peso Challenge #1: Dulcinea

Posted by Nathalie Dayo On 4:22 PM 4 comments
The wife and I decided to take on a challenge of looking for a restaurant, eat there without spending more than 500 Pesos. It's hard, but here's the first restaurant that we visited: Dulcinea Ali Mall Branch.

For the missus, she got Dulcinea's Favorito meal - Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet

For myself, I got the Dulcinea Favorito meal - Spicy Chicken Strips

Dessert was a slice of Sansrival.

My opinion: The chicken was delicious, spicy but that specific taste did not over power the chicken. The Sweet and sour fish was also delicious. The Sansrival - not what we expected.

The cost: Each Favorito meal was for Php149, Sansrival was for Php55. Our total bill: Php353 Pesos.

By the way,. the Favorito meals include the main dish, two mini-cream puffs and a glass of iced tea per serving. Cheap, filling and delicious, my kind of meal.

The wife and I have been passing by Rai Rai Ken in Ali Mall for the longest of times and one time we decided to pay the restaurant a visit.

I wasn't able to sample the food of the missus so I'll just talk about what I had:

My order was from the Donburi menu, the Gyudon for Php195. It was good, the beef was tender and juicy and the rice was not too much or too little. If you love Japanese food, you may want to visit Rai Rai Ken.

Dining at Lemongrass Shangri-La Plaza

Posted by Nathalie Dayo On 1:59 PM 4 comments
Last week Saturday, the missus and I decided to eat out and she recommended Lemongrass. A restaurant that participated in the event that she went to - The Appetite Restaurant Festival 2011.

What I had:

Photobucket


Photobucket


The Appetite Sampler (P500). As for the taste, they were good, but the California Maki can be made better. It wasn't as "bouncy" as the other makis that I have tasted.

Photobucket


As for the drinks, the Calamansi Juice (P75) was just right. Not too sweet, not too sour. Perfect for those who love fresh juices.

What the missus had

Photobucket


Chicken Teriyaki (P105). It was quite dry and lacked a little in the teriyaki sauce department.

Photobucket


Thai Iced Tea (P105). She still votes for the Thai iced tea of Mango Tree Bistro, but it was good and refreshing.

Dessert, we shared the Sticky Rice with Mango (P110)

Photobucket


The dessert wasn't too sweet and it was heavy mainly because of the sticky rice.

Our total bill Php 981.00. Our verdict, they could still use a little more improvement on some of their dishes.

An old photo that I wanted to share because of the message.

I stumbled on this video while "surfing" youtube. It has been awhile since I heard music from this era, certainly brings back a lot of memories.

Eating out at Burgoo

Posted by Benji On 3:34 PM 6 comments
I'm not the photographer or the food critic, but there are times that I like capturing images of the food on the table.

Photobucket


The spicy shrimp was not that spicy, but it did give it that edge that I look for in food.

Photobucket


The steak was not dry and it was juicy. Delicious!

Photobucket


French fries made from real potatoes are becoming a rarity, thankfully the serving on the plate was made from potatoes and not some other substitute.

The food in Burgoo is pricey and the serving sizes looked like it got smaller.

      
Now this is a movie I would definitely watch! Nothing like product placement made "in your face". I especially liked the scene where the "hero" is talking to an advertiser about pop up ads.

Something from the Associated Press:

Our first time to try French Baker was at their branch in SM Megamall.

And that's the missus ordering our food

And I took a snapshot of this while waiting

The food served that night was good. The pasta was creamy and the chicken a la king that the missus had was delicious.

Here are some snapshots that I took that day.

It's rare to see polar bears out and about in the city. And last February, we just saw quite a number roaming the streets and dancing!

The Best Way to a Man's Heart

Posted by Nathalie Dayo On 2:25 PM 4 comments
It has been said that the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. I can't say that it is 100% true, but it helps.

We've been addicted to the Mojo Potatoes from Shakey's and learning how to make some surely helped. He enjoyed it more and it was easier for both our wallets, as well as on the cravings.

Just make sure that you have some potatoes in your pantry, breading, a little mayonnaise or sour cream and lots of cooking oil and you're ready to make this delightful finger food when ever your significant other requests for some.

Fireworks at SM Mall of Asia

The Mall of Asia has grown to be a popular destination for many shoppers and folks who want to kick back and relax while enjoying the Manila Bay sunset. My wife and I spent our Saturday afternoon there so she could take some photos of the famous sunset (almost a requirement for any photographer here in the Philippines). We also got the chance to watch the latest Harry Potter movie. A surprise for us was the fireworks display. So not only did we get to relax and see a movie, we got an extra treat with the display.
