Sumo Sam

20120624-085401.jpg It was one of those days when I get Japanese food cravings. Sumo Sam caught my eye while walking in Gateway Mall. Their interiors were cozy with yellow lighting. The wait staff were very accommodating. Our table was set up with a tea-light candle. We were given a very heavy menu book. It was filled with illustrations and descriptions of their extensive menu.

Teriyaki Boy


20120622-113452.jpg After a long day at East Ave Medical Center, my mom and I decided to have dinner before heading home. I had a craving for something Japanese so we went to Teriyaki Boy (Banawe Branch). It was already late, a light dinner would do. We ordered from the menu where the section says low in sodium.

Chicken Charlie

A Valentine’s Day dinner special. It has been a stressful few weeks since we moved to our new home. So we decided that instead of going out to eat, we’d get take out and have dinner on the roof deck while watching the stars. (more romantic at mas tipid! lol) I have been craving for Chicken Charlie’s twice fried chicken for the longest time! I’ve eaten there twice already but didn’t take pictures or make a blog post about it. On our way to Banawe, traffic was horrendous! Banawe was like a parking lot, cars were inching their way slowly. I was hungry already! Good thing I saw some kids doing something special for their friends in a nearby resto. Something to distract my hunger. Read More…

Kopi Roti

My sister and I have always wanted to try out Old Chinatown Kopi Tiam. So one Sunday afternoon, we headed out on an adventure. I was supposed to look it up on the map or call to ask for directions but the egoistical male in me insisted that I know the way because I’ve seen it once before. We got lost and we walked all the way to… guess where? KOPI ROTI! LOL! I thought they were the same! Since it was very hot that day and we were already hungry, we settled into Kopi Roti. I’m so glad that we weren’t disappointed with the food. The servers were happy to greet us and let us choose our seats. Kopi Roti is a small shop, about 10 tables max. They also have a table outside, for smokers maybe. After placing our orders, one by one customers went in until the place was packed. They have combo meals which made it easier to choose. Here’s what we got: 1) iced kopi + kaya toast; 2) iced kopi + french toast + soft boiled eggs; 3) iced kopi + peanut butter toast + soft boiled eggs. The iced kopi was good… I’m not a coffee drinker so it was okay for me. But I think they put too much ice. The drink was watered down. I love the kaya toast!!! I can eat this everyday! I wish they made the toast a bit thicker and chewier. I LOVE eggs, especially the soft boiled ones. This has soy sauce and white pepper. You break the yolk and stir then slurp! YUM!!!! The french toast and the peanut butter toast were just so-so… nothing special about them. I wish the peanut butter toast were thinner and crispier. I’ll definitely be back for more! KOPI ROTI Branch we went to is located at Antonia Mansion, Banawe St., Quezon City (Tel. No.: (632)4968491)

After a year of not posting on my blog, I am now back!!! =D First of all, I’d like to thank my very good friend, Evilinside, for making my banner and for encouraging me to continue posting. Now on to my first post of the year…

My mom, my sister and I went shopping for stuff to be used for our bedroom. While walking at the mall, I noticed a new stall. It’s brightly colored pink (I really don’t like pink, that’s why I noticed it) and it has the sign ‘ICE CREAM’ (that’s why it caught my attention!).

This is the stall: the ice cream car – ice cream (home of the best banana ice cream in town!). They were giving out free tastes that day.

There were eight flavors on display: strawberry explosion, blueberry royalty, holy cacao, vanilla indulgence, mango tango, goin’ bananas, ube macapuno and shake-it-baby melon. I have tasted every flavor and I love every one of them! They used the freshest ingredients, I can taste it in their ice cream. The consistency of gelato but it has the creamy goodness of ice cream.

The melon flavor was so refreshing! Perfect for the summer =) I loved the banana flavor, it kinda taste like banana bread only in ice cream form. I loved the strawberry flavor and blueberry flavor, it had the berry goodness in it. The chocolate and vanilla were somewhat normal… but still i loved it because it’s chocolate paired with vanilla!

For only PhP40/cup, you can have the best banana ice cream in town! =) The best part is their ice cream has fruit bits in them =)

I’d surely come back for more!

theicecreamcar ice cream stall is located at the 3rd floor of SM San Lazaro (in front of ACE Hardware)

UPDATE: April 4, 2010 – they have a new flavor on display… Queso Flavored Ice Cream (it’s sweet with a bit of ‘saltiness’ because of the cheese bits incorporated in the ice cream). So yummy! It reminds me of mamang sorbetero =)

Greenwich — usual pizza fast food hang out of most people. You may ask why I’m blogging about it since it’s so common like Jollibee or McDonald’s. Well, read on…


April 17, 2009, Isetann Recto Branch

I love pizza and pasta so for a snack, we went to the nearest pizza place from the LRT Recto Station. Greenwich! They have new pizza flavors, the overloaded pizza — grilled beef shawarma, hickory bbq chicken, overload special, meat & cheese overload, cheese & sausage overload, many more.

We ordered cheese & sausage overload and lasagna supreme, my favorites. Perfect thin crust, melt in your mouth mozarella cheese, lip-smacking sausages, all in one pizza. Creamy white sauce, tasty meat filling, piping hot melted cheese, al dente pasta — that’s the lasagna supreme.

While enjoying all of these, we encountered one problem… a cockroach problem. I’m glad I’m not the sensitive type. I didn’t puke or go green… LOL!

I sent a text message to the number posted on the receipt, telling them about the cockroach seen. I got a reply saying that they already requested an additional treatment. I would follow up on this so please stay tuned… LOL!

P.S. Calling Acer Cervantes of Raidex, maybe they can be your next client? 😀

UPDATE: Fogging and misting for the next pest control will be on the first week of May.

Aveneto Pizzeria Ristorante

Sunday, March 22, 2009, SM San Lazaro.

Dining out with my mom, Sidney and Keith, one hot Sunday. Airconditioned malls luring us from the scorching heat of the streets. At the mall, it was nice and cool. I got hungry while we were looking for shoes and after I’ve tried about a dozen pairs. I suggested that we eat somewhere we haven’t tried before. Walking along, we found Avento in a very unlikely place. It’s beside a clothes/shoe store and Max’s Restaurant. After looking at the menu, we decided to give it a try since Sidney wanted pasta and Keith wanted pizza. Read More…

Adobong Balut

I accompanied my dad to the market this morning. We bought a lot of stuff and one of them is a dozen balut eggs. Since I’m getting tired of steamed balut, I searched the net for variations on cooking balut.

Dinner for tonight is Adobong Balut on Garlic Rice. I got this recipe from Ms. Connie’s site:

balut egg
finely minced garlic
soy sauce
oyster sauce
freshly ground black pepper

I got tagged!

I’d like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Randell. Without him, I won’t be getting the award I truly deserve. (ok na ba yan?)

Here are the rules:

When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to said person so everyone knows he or she is real.

Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have 7 friends. Show the 7 random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Weblog.” Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!
