Food Tripping by the Taal Lake

And so, my other camera failed me to be able to take better photos so pardon us for the quality. 😀 Anyway, we had a trip to Taal Volcano just last month and after the trek and taking photos of the views with our respective mobile phones, we had a hearty lunch beside the Taal Lake. We had inihaw na Tilapia and Bulalo. Continue reading “Food Tripping by the Taal Lake”

It was our first time at Classic Cuisine (also known as C2) at the Shanri-la Mall and I can’t believe why we haven’t tried that restaurant for the nth time of going to the mall. The restaurant is under the Cravings Group and after having tasted some of what they offer, I’ll be definitely going back there and try something new.

We were looking for restaurants to eat around Greenbelt 5 that was not that really expensive. And so, we found ourselves inside Solihiya. Solihiya is a fusion of Filipino and Chinese.

Breakfast Suggestion 1: Jollibee Pancake Sandwich with cheese and Hot Chocolate

If you think you’re to busy to get breakfast, you should then get a Jollibee Pancake Sandwich with cheese and a Hot Chocolate especially that the weather is a bit chilly right now. But if you’re not a fan of hot chocolate, you can pair it with other drinks as a value meal for 64 pesos.

Jollibee’s other delicious breakfast joys are also available through take-out, drive-thru and Jollibee’s 8-7000 express delivery.

Lobster food tripping in Batanes

Lobsters in Batanes

Lobster food tripping shouldn’t be missed in Batanes since the lobsters there are cheap since the per kilo price could reach down to 300 pesos. You can’t find that kind of per kilo price in Metro Manila. 😀 The lobsters that we had for dinner during our first night at Batanes was steamed, not like the way Killer Rock Lobster was cooked at Fish out of Water. I enjoyed eating it because its juicy and also because of the roe since it’s my favorite. 🙂

Honesty Coffee Shop: where honesty is the best policy

Honesty Coffee Shop

Certainly, no one can put a coffee shop like this in Manila where no one’s looking over at the store and that you pay the exact amount of the item you got as listed in the price list posted on the wall. There were softdrinks, candies, chips, biscuits, instant coffee, and even souvenir items for sale there. And if you’re going there to buy something, don’t forget to also write down what you have bought and the amount. 🙂

It was during lunch on our first day that we get to experience authentic Ivatan food. We were brought by the multi-cab driver we hired to Monica Fadullo’s cottage in Mahato, Batanes. It was certainly a great food trip experience there especially that we have a good view of the beach on top of the cottage. With the food served to us, 150 pesos per head is indeed worth it. 🙂 Continue reading “Lunch at Mahatao, Batanes”
