What’s For Lunch?  Pink’s Hotdogs!

Long-overdue lunch at Pink’s with the BAe’s. I was torn between the Tokyo Dog and the Breakfast All Day Dog.  The former won and it was an excellent choice!  The Tokyo Dog which was nothing short of delicious was topped with unagi sauce, coleslaw, tempura flakes, wasabi mayo, togarashi.  Someone commented that it looked like a garden….

This Family Eats at 101 Hawker Food House

Jodie requested that we eat Malaysian-inspired food one fine Saturday. I honestly don’t know where she got the idea from, but we obliged. I scoured the internet for reasonably priced Malay cuisine in the Makati and BGC area and stumbled on an old-timer, 101 Hawker Food House.  It turned out to be a good choice…

This Family Eats:  Dean and Deluca

We really enjoy the food and coffee at Dean and Deluca and if only it weren’t too expensive, we would be there more often to try out their other offerings, but unfortunately it is.  That explains why we’ve been there only twice since they opened. Shown here are what we’ve had so far in Dean and…

This Family Eats at Din Tai Fung

We’re really so happy that Din Tai Fung opened in BGC. We can’t get enough of it, to be honest. At first, I really thought it was quite overrated, but frequent visits changed that. Some of our “new” Din Tai Fung discoveries include  1) Crispy Beef Strips. I like anything crispy so this was instantly…

What’s For Lunch? FAT Burger

So my officemate, CA has been talking about FAT Burger for awhile now and we finally made it there.  It was an impromptu decision as we were supposed to only eat at Burger King. I ordered the Western Bacon BBQ Fatburger with Cheese with a side of skinny fries and onion rings.  I really loved the…

The birthday boy’s birthday wish: CRABS

Birthday Meals.  I’m pretty sure you all have your favorite things to eat on your birthday’s.  For JodiesDaddy, it would rotate among 3:  Shabu-shabu (or hotpot), steak or CRABS.  For this year’s celebration, his wish was CRABS.  Not just any ordinary crabs, but the Crab Sotanghon from Hong Kong Master Cook in Seaside Market along Macapagal Avenue….

This Family Eats at Caruso Ristorante Italiano

My mom’s 5th sibling (they are a family of 11 siblings!) Tita Sylvia, visited from the US a few weeks ago.  Her schedule was packed with activities including an advance 60th birthday lunch at Caruso Ristorante Italiano — a restaurant I haven’t been to in almost a decade (must have been more than a decade because Jodie…

My attempt at eating healthy

About 2 weeks ago, I had the worst health scare.  You see, I am obese.  I’m not denying it.  I’ve faced that fact for the past several years.  Since I’ve transferred jobs almost 3 years ago, I’ve become even more unhealthy and I attribute that to stress.  Not making excuses.  Testament to that is my…

Date-Night Chronicles: Las Flores

Dinner at Las Flores was mine and JodiesDaddy’s Valentine’s dinner date.  Actually, if you want to be technical about it, it wasn’t really a date, “date”-night because we were with friends and it was a day before Valentine’s day.  But it really doesn’t matter, does it? It was our first time in Las Flores, so we relied on the…

This Family Eats at Bun Appetit

Whenever we find ourselves at Salcedo Market these are normally our staples: Manvy’s spinach noodles and a Hotdog sandwich from Z’s Sausages Ilocos Empanadas and maybe Takoyaki Balls Once in awhile, we try out something different – as we did the day we had  these Lobster and Crab Rolls from Bun Appetit.  I’m a little too…
