Food post

I know it's evil to see photos of food, so I'll just cram everything in a few posts.

Here are the different restaurants, bistros, cafes, and hole-in-the-wall eateries I've tried the past year.

Italianni's

The star of the night for me was the spinach and artichoke dip. Everything was good as expected, but the pizza was underwhelming. Yet two years ago I think I said that they have the best pizza out there. But I think that the price is a bit on the expensive side. There are cheaper alternatives with good food as well like Burgoo and Gumbo.

Yoshinoya

I haven't had the chance to eat here yet ever since their branch at SM Southmall closed down several years ago. I didn't know why I thought this was a Korean restaurant. Food was so-so but I think I have to go back again to try their other dishes.

Delicious Restaurant

My friend Leo and I wanted to eat somewhere in Chinatown just for the adventure. Although we really couldn't afford those restaurants in Chinatown itself, so we ended up in Delicious Restaurant which is just on the outskirts of Ongpin.

Food was not that cheap but the servings are huge. And I mean really huge, so the pricing turned out to be actually cheap. That siomai is thrice the size of regular siomai sold elsewhere. We noticed that everyone was ordering pancit lomi and vowed to order that next time.

No photo of the beef burrito I ate as I was really really hungry already but it was huge! Tons better than Taco Bell, which I must admit I do enjoy as well. Can't wait to try their tacos.

Bugong's

I've heard so much rave reviews about Bugong's that my expectations were unfairly high. And of course I was disappointed. It still is good thought but not that much different from other roasted chickens.

Gumbo

Worth every penny. Jambalaya still is the go-to food, with the fish and chips a close second.

Sushi-ya

Everyone knows that their katsudon is worth evey penny as it really is filling. Lots of vegetables which I like. I must admit I haven't tried ordering anything else, but I'll do soon.

Bona Coffee

Bona Coffee

Bona Coffee is better than Starbucks. Their coffee actually tastes like coffee, which I really like. They have free Wi-Fi but what's even better is that they have a computer terminal with a couple of desktops. These are free to use. But what really won me over is how low the calories in their blended drinks are. So if you're on a diet, then Bona Coffee is the way to go.

Gawa ka rin Food post. I'm sure marami ka ring alam dyan na okay. Lalo na yung mga masasarap na sulit talaga hehe.

Yung Bona Coffee originally sa BF Paranaque. Tapos nagka-branch sa Westgate, Alabang. Tapos meron na rin ata sa MoA pero di ko pa nakita.

Okay siya dahil konti lang calories. =)
