One thing I love about the way I chose to lose weight was I didn’t have to stop eating the food I loved to eat. I look at food not as the enemy but as a friend – we have our ups and downs. The past few months, me and my friend had some of the best experiences. Sure, some are classics or favorites but it still didn’t disappoint.
After Mike and I got married, we decided to spend a few days at Tagaytay. We chanced upon Buon Giorno after buying pasalubong from Rowena’s. We love Italian food so we decided to check out what they had to offer. We got an order of pasta and some fish. Both orders were good BUT for the price we paid for, the serving was too small.
Ramen Santouka will always be my favorite ramen place in the metro. I really prefer their ramen over any other ramen place. Whenever I feel sad or depressed about life, I instantly go here for some pick me up food. Their baos are not upto par with Ippudo’s but I still enjoyed it.
The only reason why we decided to eat at Hukad was because they have an amazing location at Mall of Asia. They had a spectacular view of the sunset and we knew it’d be a perfect backdrop as we ate our dinner. Foodwise, everything was very meh. Their Cebu lechon was good but not the best. The rest of the food we ordered was very average too! The only thing I liked here was their garlic rice.
I’m not a fan of Bulgogi Brothers because of how expensive it is. I prefer eating at Sambokojin rather than eating here because I know I’d get a better bang for my buck there. But while doing some errands, the family decided to eat here (for my mom who loved Koreans but not Korean food apparently). The food was amazing. I love everything we ordered and the side dishes were all A+. The only thing I disliked was their service. We ate at Venice Piazza Mall. They had a small space but I cannot believe how terrible their service was. It took them 30 minutes to bring out our meat while it took them a minimum of ten minutes for a side dish refill. I didn’t expect that from a Bistro Group member. It was awful.
I love eating here. I love Filipino food and Max’s (for me, at least) does it right all the time. I love their version of Bicol Express (more like lechon with some gata) and of course, this Steamed Fish in Light Soy Sauce. Their seafood lomi was also deliciously filling. Max’s cannot go wrong with me.
Takoyaki at some random stall
The last one on this list is this takoyaki we ate at the food market at SM Southmall. There was a long line for it so we knew we had to try it. The highlight of this takoyaki was the whole octopus in every piece. I don’t think any of the other takoyaki places I’ve eaten at offered this. Taste-wise, it was good. I couldn’t say it was the best but it was definitely a notch higher than all the other ones I’ve tried.
