Okiniiri, BF Paranaque

7:33:00 AM

We chanced upon this place when we were driving in the area. They have a banner that says eat-all-you-can for just Php 380. Food lovers that we are, we decided to try the place.

They have two areas: one near the buffet and another enclosed area which I think can be rented as a function room.

Restaurante Damaso, Greenbelt 5

7:45:00 AM
Dinner last night was impromptu. We initially planned to go to the newly opened Starbucks Reserve at Rufino St., but ended up at Greenbelt 5 instead. After debating and checking where we felt like eating, we ended up at Damaso.

It was both our first time in the place. I don’t know why since we pass by the area so many times before. Anyway, so there we were.

I had a hard time deciding what to eat, simply because they seemed to have different twists in how they described their meals!  Their bihod (tuna egg) pasta for example sounded interesting. 

However, Jie and I decided to go for the traditional Spanish – the paella valenciana and their callos.

Gerbu’s Burger N’ Tacos

4:19:00 AM

We have passed by this place numerous time. One night, when we passed by BF Aguirre and we saw that it was still open, we decided to try it out.


From their signage, they are offering burgers and tacos. Aside from this though, they also offer steaks and sizzlers. Here is sharing our dining experience at this place.

Found this in Zomato when we were on the lookout for something filling and affordable.I cannot really remember if we were craving for meat All I know is we were hungrrrry (as always). Nyah-Nyah I remembered that it was already mid-afternoon but nobody had any lunch yet. So you can imagine how our stomachs were grumbling Smile
We had to look for the place. It was actually right across at Pergola Mall in BF but you need to look up

Our week days usually end late. Dinner at 9 pm and later are common. So, when after an errand we found ourselves at BF Paranaque, our next mission was to find a place that was still open, and would not be rushing us with call-for-last-orders.

We were not looking for something fancy. We don’t want to stay late as it was the

A Father's Day Greeting

4:10:00 AM
A father's day greeting

This is a day late.
Not because I did not remember but I was holding off because I remember and feel so much.
There is still not a day when I don’t recall — when I see your chair, your picture, the house. There were still some unspoken conversations, you and I.
All the posts in the world are always not enough. I may turn this into a poem, an essay or book but it would not be sufficient to talk about you and how you were. I just know that I am the luckiest girl in the wold because God “assigned” you to me.
Thank you for the imperfect “You”, the real “You”, the You that we love. And so with this simple post, I just want to say happy father’s day.
From your one and only daughter.

Ba Noi’s

5:51:00 AM 0 Comments
I am not sure how long Ba Noi’s was in Makati. I have not noticed it before whenever we eat at Mom and Tina’s. But that afternoon, notice it we did. We were actually thinking of eating at Mom and Tina’s but decided to try Ba Noi’s instead.

We started with the usual Vietnamese spring rolls. I cannot really say that I am an expert on spring rolls but theirs is very sticky it was actually hard to handle it with the chopsticks.

New Bombay

12:25:00 AM 0 Comments
Last Friday night, we cannot decide where to eat. We wanted something new so we decided to walk around Salcedo Village to check out the different places near the area.

We ended up along Dela Costa St., and there we decided to eat at New Bombay. It was actually my first time to eat here considering that there a lot of branches in the metro.

I tried their Flavored Lassi strawberry (Php85) which was actually their version of a yoghurt drink. Try imagining drinking the yoghurt drink from groceries. They actually offer a lot of flavors, including plain yoghurt drink.

Sophia’s Mediterranean-Italian Cuisine

10:48:00 PM 0 Comments
Pergola Mall is a small mall along Aguirre Ave. in BF Paranaque. For those familiar with the place, it is besides Ruins, and where Robinson’s Supermarket is located. Lately, we have been frequenting the place to buy our groceries from Robinson’s.

Within Pergola Mall is Sophia’s. Their signage says its Mediterranean cuisine but their banners in the area actually says Mediterranean and Italian. And yes, it is both. Two weekends ago, we found ourselves trying the place.

I find the place quaint. It is actually just a few tables but the place is nice. They were also accommodating.  When they saw that there was child with us, they quickly turned their flat screen TV to cartoons and gave us the remote. I guess it also helped that we were the only customers at around 5 pm at the time.

We were in torn between having a real meal and just merienda. We convinced ourselves it was early dinner (yeah right Smile with tongue out). Anyway, we opted for pizza at the time.

They offered that it can be a mix of 2 flavors so we decided to have half of it with Quattro Formaggio (4 cheese with tomato sauce) and the other half to be Arrabiata (tomato, mozzarella, salami, sausage and olives).

We also tried their moussaka and their lasagna. I cannot say much for this as these seemed normal enough.Let us just say the family loved it (considering that not a small portion was left Winking smile

Warung Indo

6:44:00 AM
I’ve heard about this Indonesian restaurant from a colleague. Last Friday night was the only time we were able to check it out.

The place is located at San Agustin St, at the back of LPL Tower, in Salcedo Village. When we went there, there were a lot of muslims dining that time, a sign (for me) that the place is authentic. Junjie was actually fascinated with all the Indonesian he was hearing. The waitress who served us tho was Filipino.
2014-02-21 21.25.12-1
The place offers Indonesian-Chinese cuisine, and since Junjie is always on a quest for the best kway-teow, there was not much thinking when he glanced at the menu. In fact, he did not even bother to check the menu. He just called the waitress and ordered the dish.

It took me a longer time to choose tho as they offer a lot. I was torn between the Beef Rendang, their curry, roti and the Indonesia Laksa. The waitress told us that their specialty was the beef rendang but I decided on the Indonesia Laksa which was vermicelli noodles in coconut cream.

Junjie was very excited waiting for his kway teow. After all, he orders the same dish in all Asian restaurants we go to. When it arrived, he cant wait to taste it. The taste was okay for me but according to Junjie, it was not that exceptional, at least not the way he remembered it when he stayed in Indonesia.

We also shared the Indonesia Laksa. The coconut cream was very evident in the soup. Though I was hoping that it would be more spicy like the Singaporean Laksa I tasted in other places. In fact, it is not spicy at all, which was a disappointment for me.

Warung Indo is open 24 hours a day and we will definitely be back as we only tried two of their dishes. Junjie initially thought I also ordered the rendang and he was waiting for it. Good thing I did not as the servings were big. Next time, I will definitely try the rendang, their roti and the lists from their extensive menu.
Smile Smile Smile

We visited the place again and this time we tried one of their best sellers: their beef rendang. Their version costs Php400 so we had high expectations! Hehehe

It was quite good! Sauce pa lang ulam na 

We also tried their fish curry. I was expecting that the sauce would be thicker though. 
I guess we would come back again and again at Warung Indo whenever we are craving for Indonesian.
