May Discrimination sa Pedro 'N Coi!

September 22, 2017
Pedro 'N Coi, Robinsons Galleria

Noong nalaman ko na ang Pedro 'N Coi (Filipino Chain Restaurant of Miss Universe 2011 3rd Runner-up Shamcey Supsup-Lee and husband Lloyd Lee) pala ay sa Fisher Mall, na excite ako. Naghahanap lang talaga ako ng mayaya para mas maganda kumain pag may kasama pero taon nalang lumipas, wala padin akong nayaya. Pero ngayon, padami na sila ng padami, kaya noong nakita kong magbubukas sila sa Robinsons Galleria, na-excite na naman ako kc this time palapit na ng palapit at wala na akong rason para hindi makakain dito. Pero noong nagbukas na sila this year, syempre nag-aantay na naman ako ng mayaya, ayaw ko kc kumakain sa mga ganitong lugar mag-isa.

Yesterday, may bombang sumabog sa opisina (not literal, of course). Sobrang distracted ako buong araw. Hindi ko alam ung history (I was never fascinated with History, that's why). Kaya tinawagan ko mga kaibigan ko doon kung may alam din ba sila sa mga kwento-kwentong kotsero. Until nagyaya si Jecelle na ituloy na daw ung plan namin manood ng Loving In Tandem, kaso wala na sa Megamall kya lumipat kami sa Robinsons Galleria pero wala na din dahil sa first week ng Kingsman. Nakakainis lang.

Since nasa Robinsons Galleria nalang din kami, kumain nalang kami. Noong papasok palang ako sa mall, may nakasabayan akong magbabarkada at narinig ko silang nagkayayaang kumain, doon daw sila kakain sa may "Jeep". Masarap daw kasi. Ung Jeep ay attraction sa Pedro 'N Coi. So sabi ko kay Jecelle, narinig mo na ba ung restaurant ni Shamcey, ung may Jeep, nandito na. Doon nalang tayo kakain. Game naman sya kaya sa wakas natupad na din ung matagal ko ng gustong kainan na restaurant.

Dahil busy kami catching up, natagalan kami mamili ng kakainin until nakapili kami na pang single foods, un pala may discrimination dito, hindi available ang single foods ng weekends, Monday to Thursday lang daw? WUUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTT? Seriously? Discrimination? What if mag-isa lang pala ako kumain dito, hindi padin pala ako makakain dahil may discrimination pala sa mga single. Dahil Friday, ang pwede lang daw ay ung mga pagkaing good for two or ung 3-4 person. What duh! So tama lang pala talaga na nag-antay akong may kasama kc baka mapahiya lang ako.

So we asked suggestions nalang, the waitress suggested their best selling Sizzling Bulalowlowlow and we took it, as well as the guava drinks.

So back to chatting, laughing as if we're the only people in the area. Tapos may narinig kaming sumigaw, ang lakas kya napahinto kami then lahat ng waiters and waitresses sumagot din. Beym! Nakakagulat! Nakaka-culture shock. Bawat deliver ata ng food sisigaw muna bago ilapag ung pagkain kaya habang tumatagal nasanay na din kami pero dahil madami pa kaming pag-uusapan, ayon balik sa kwentuhan.

Oh by the way, the waitress reminded us na 15-20 minutes daw ung food ma-serve. Fine with us, hindi kami masyadong gutom, kahit na tagalan nyo pa, ayos lang. Mag-usap muna kami. Tapos may dumating chips. While waiting, may pa-chips si mayor. Nice!

Pagdating ng pagkain, kumain na din kami pero tuloy padin ang kwentuhan. In fairness naman, masarap ung food. Ung guava drinks, masarap din pero feeling namin may halong gin, kaya tinanong namin kung may halo ba talagang gin, sabi naman ni girl wala daw. Juice lang daw. Okay, fine, juice lang. Masarap naman pero parang nakakalasing lang. Ang dami kong kinain kc sobrang sarap. Ung kanin ni Jecelle kalahati lang ang kinain nya kaya akin isa at kalahati tuloy. Pero ang dami ng cup of rice nila ah. Pang dalawahang cup na yata un eh. So parang 3 cups lahat nakain ko. Sarap naman kasi eh.

Why I like it here:
- Masarap ang food
- Friendly ang waiters/waitresses (naka-smile lagi)
- So Pinoy ambiance
- Simply ahhhhhh-mazing

Why I don't like it here:
- DISCRIMINATION EXIST! Bwesit! Bawal ang single pag weekend? Ano to? Eh di kyo na Shamcey and Lloyd ang may forever! Eh di waw! Congrats!
- Nakakagulat.. Nakaka-culture shock. If my foreigner kang kasama, WARNING is a must, baka mabato nila ung mag serve. LOL (exaggeration)
- Medyo mabaho hininga ni waitress (natuwa ako ng konti kc dalawa na kami)
- Cash only (sad), sabagay, makikita mo sa labas ng tinatahan, "BAWAL UTANG!" Nyahaha

P.S.
Oh, may nakasulat pala doon sa wall na kung oorder na daw, sisigaw lang daw ng DARNA! Sayang, huli na namin nabasa un, eh di sana nakasigaw kami ng Darna! LOL!

Hobing's Bingsu (Cheese, Mango and Choco Brownies)

August 12, 2017
Hobing, Lucky Chinatown, Binondo, Manila

Ordered: Bingsu (Cheese, Mango and Choco Brownies)
Leny and Zarrah
First time experience
I've been craving for this for few weeks now because of the enticing post of the people I follow in Instagram. The nearest branch in my location is the one in Lucky Chinatown.

Ambiance
The place is small but because of fewer people in the place, it's just enough space for a dessert cafe. If you're going to compare it to DQ, it's difinitely bigger in most of their branches that I've been to.

You can feel the Korean setting simply because of the menu that are in written in Korean with English translation of course. Even their logo. Duh, it originates from Korea after all.

There are couple of hugable giant teddy bears but if you look closely, you won't hug them. Dirty looking.

Taste
Honesty, I expect it to be sweet. I mean, everything should be sweet, heller, it's a dessert. To my dismay, it's not. It's like, you're just eating a crushed ice with cheese or choco brownies on it. But to be fair, I like the mango. It is the only sweet among the three. Sweet with a little bit sour but it's okay. I like the way it is.

Verdict: 2.5 out of 5.0
Cheese - 2.0
Mango - 4.0
Choco Brownies - 1.5

It's not about the food anyway, it's about the bonding experience. We can't do this often. But when we do, it must be worth to remember.

First Bonding @ Kuya J

May 11, 2017
Kuya J, 3rd Level, Lucky Chinatown Mall Annex, Binondo, Manila

Our original plan was just to try Kuya J's famous Halo-halo. But since we're hungry already, so why not eat first? We ordered Danggit RiceDilis Salted Egg RiceSinigang Na Baboy and Humba. As expected, the foods were great except the 3 piece Danggit because I think it was not cook. I don't know. I'm no expert but my taste buds says so.

Anyways, we're here because of Halo-halo for PHP109.00 and all I can say is WOW! This is so far the best Halo-halo for me. I've never tried anything like this before. I highly recommend this to all who love Halo-halo but haven't tried this.

The best part of get-together like this was the laughtrip. To the point na ayaw mo ng tumawa dahil nauutot ka. Jahe. Definitely I would not forget this moment. Ung tipong napapayuko ka nalang at inaamoy ang paligid baka sobrang baho ng nilabas mo na hindi kaaya-ayang hangin (so gross). Hayz

Binagoongang Baboy and Ginataang Monggo of Kuya J

November 5, 2015
Kuya J, Upper Ground Floor, SM Megamall Bldg A, EDSA, Mandaluyong City

I think Kuya J is the fastest chain restaurant in the country today. Kuya J opens in Metro Manila only this year. I heard they already have 18 branches and still growing. I tried to look in the web if they have a website but I think they don't have yet. Maybe soon.

We ordered Binagoongang Baboy and Ginataang Monggo. To be honest I don't like the Ginataang Monggo. It tasted like panis (musty). Maybe because of the ginataan (coconut milk). But I love the Binagoongang Baboy. One word, heaven!

What I like here:
- The place is nice. Looks wide even its not because of the mirror effect.
- The waiters are courteous and smile a lot.
- The taste of the food Binagoongang Baboy is heaven.
- Reasonable price.

What I don't like here:
- Long line. (Maybe because they're just new).
- They serve longer than you thought. You gave your order in advance during the line but they'll process your food only if you're inside. I can't help it but compare to 's 50Diner in Baguio City which is when you enter inside, they're ready to serve your order already.

SuTuKil in Lapu-Lapu Shrine

July 24, 2015
Lapu-Lapu Shrine, Punta Engaño, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, Philippines

SuTuKil (Sugba, Tuwa, Kilaw), I don't really know the exact translation in English, but I know them coz this is my native tongue, let's try this.. Sugba (Grilled), Tuwa (Stewed) and Kilaw (Raw). This is the must-try recommendation of our Safety Manager AEG here in Cebu before going to Cebu City.

The location of the restaurant is not very welcoming coz you need to pass thru a narrow pathway inside the souvenir shops. The outside looks of the restaurant itself is not pleasing too. Oh, come on, am I going to be disappointed here? There's a lot of fresh sea-foods to choose from in front of you. When the lady start mentioning the prices of PHP200+ to PHP500+ with additional cooking charges in every menu. Again, whaaat? This is it, I'm totally disappointed. Oh no, its very expensive.

Because of the expensive prices, they only ordered 2 menus, sinigang na isda and adobong hipon. Are our orders even represents to SuTuKil? I guess not. LOL! Sorry guys.
To be honest, the taste of the foods were so delicious. The disappointment became awesome. Oh by the way, before I forgot, the inside of the restaurant has second floor and half open to see the view of the sea. By that time, it was low tide, so all we saw was thousands of suga-suga aka crablets.

The bill was PHP1,203.00, that includes 5 bottled water. Because we can't pull out PHP3 right ayaw, the waiter offered not to pay the 3 pesos. UHmazing.
