Chinese New Year is just around the corner. And because of our strong Chinese influence, that means we celebrate that, too! Something that both cultures do the same is eat as a family. And guess whaaaat! There’s a gem of a Chinese place in Tomas Morato. It’s called Oriental Palace and it opened there around a year ago.
I’ve noticed that lately, there have been a lot of new beer brands that have been popping up, or have been gaining popularity. Local draft beers, Brew Kettle, and caramel beers to name a few are some of those beers. I can tell how the market for beer had boomed. I guess it’s no wonder that a new beer brand would take its place in the Philippine market.
Cafe Lima is a relatively new restaurant located in San Juan, near Santolan Road. It’s all the way up the fourth floor which gives them privacy from the other establishments in the building. They serve Filipino food with a twist and a touch of elegance.
There was a downpour that day. I was alone at home, everyone in my family went out and I was left with our dogs. That day was the day before going to the grocery, which meant that our food supplies were nil. It was mid-afternoon. Lunch was but a far distant memory and dinner was nowhere to be seen in the horizon. Then, the greatest problem arose. I got hungry.
Korean food has become a hit here in the Philippines the past few years. One Sunday, I visited Don Day, a All-You-Can-Ssamgyupsal grill. They have a few branches here and there, but the Don Day I ate at was located along Quezon Avenue.
In Bonifacio Global City there are countless new restaurants popping up every so often. Single Origin recently had its soft opening in the 2nd Floor of the C3 Building in Bonifacio High Street.
To say that Pi Breakfast and Pies is located at the very famous Maginhawa Street is technically incorrect. It is however located at a street that intersects Maginhawa Street.
I went to have brunch with a friend of mine there just a few days ago. It wasn’t the first time for me to visit the establishment, but I sure as hell know it won’t be the last either.
Pancake House has this cool promo. It’s called Double Your Love. For only Php350, you can have either a)Two Orders of Spaghetti and Tacos or b) Two Orders of Salisbury Steak. Both comes with 2 glasses of single serve iced tea. I for one think its really cheap. You save more than a Php100 with whichever you choose.
And just saying, my favorite spaghetti, if not home cooked, is Pancake House’s. I’m not kidding. I really like it a lot.
I tried both combos. Of course, since their spaghetti is my favorite, I tried that first. When I had the double the love the first time, I haven’t started blogging yet so I didnt even bother taking a picture. Not so the next tie I went. On my second time, I tried the Salisbury steak combo. Both were really good. I just feel that the vegetables that came with the salisbury steak were lacking in quantity. Other than that, no complaints.
Both dishes had great quality for its price, even on their own. Maybe it may have something to do with my biased love of their spaghetti.
My verdict: Sulit!
Just to be clear: I’m not being paid to advertise Pancake House or its promos. I just think it’s a nice thing that more people should know and take advantage of. It really is good.
