We used accumulated gift certificates to cover most of the bill for all the shops we went … Continue reading BGC Food crawl stop 4: Wangfu take-Out

BGC Food crawl stop 3: Brown Café

“What are the most picture pretty variants?” – me to the clerk Anchan Strawberry Latte with Rainbow bubble Photogenic indeed! A pink base from the strawberry milk and jam, blending to a blue hue from the butterfly pea tea = picture perfect drink. I liked that the strawberry flavor wasn’t that sweet compared to strawberry milk sold in tetra packs in the grocery. I’m not … Continue reading BGC Food crawl stop 3: Brown Café

BGC Food crawl stop 2: Shari Shari

Mango Lassi – mango syrup, fresh yogurt, mango topping What I thought would taste like artificial flavorings and candy-like mangoes turned out as a favorite! The mango toppings tasted, uhm, natural(?) and not like the ones preserved in syrup. I didn’t choose a fruit flavored ice since I thought it would taste like candy, but this didn’t. This one was sweet and sour and tangy, … Continue reading BGC Food crawl stop 2: Shari Shari

BGC Food crawl stop 1: Providore

Bacon Clam Chowder in Bread Bowl We are always on the lookout for the best clam chowder. If we see it on the menu, we order it! This one is served in a bread bowl which contained the soup.

Food: Yellow Cab – credit card freebies

Redeeming Citibank freebies! Industrial inspired interiors after the renovation at this branch – lots of silver metal and bare ceiling setup. The seats were bit cold though because of the material. And the air conditioning was a bit too much at some areas, while the area near the door / window was a bit hot. Charlie Chan Pasta The classic yellow cab favorite. Asian flavor … Continue reading Food: Yellow Cab – credit card freebies

Food: Bowl’d – lunch bowls by a ramen brand

Food: Bad Bird – steak (take) out

The Food:Power Steak Butchers steak, corn puree, grilled romaine lettuce, cooked medium. Steak was tender for this cut, a good level of doneness. Serving size is okay too. An interesting alternative to mashed potato is this corn puree. It’s a bit lighter in consistency and a bit sweeter. Actual dine date: late 2019 Continue reading Food: Bad Bird – steak (take) out

Food: Bacolod Chk-n-BBQ House – GC dine in

Quick lunch after doing some errands. Used a gift certificate for this meal. The Food: Pecho Value Meal Breast/wing inasal , garlic rice, atchara, iced tea. Inasal taste is similar to Inasal Chicken Bacolod (another Inasal restaurant in the area with similar pricing).

Food: Chika-an sa Cebu – holiday take out

Holiday takeout at this relatively new restaurant (Dec 2019) that primarily serves Cebuano specialties, primarily seafood just as a fish pattern is used in their logo. While waiting for the food to be ready, I sat on one of the couches. The interiors feature the weave pattern a lot. The windows had a wooden accent similar to capiz windows (without the capiz). The Food: Pancit … Continue reading Food: Chika-an sa Cebu – holiday take out
