Moonshine P.U.B. x Public Urban Bar – Ortigas

The Seventh Hero - Angus Beef Sisig & Pizza

 Angus Beef Sisig (Php 400.00) & Cheese, Cheese, Cheese Pizza (Php 420.00)

Angus Beef Sisig brought our very own dish to the next level. It was just so rich in flavor, taste and texture. I will surely have it again on my next visit.

The Seventh Hero - Burger

 Lad’s Brekky Burger (Php 450.00)

This was a shame of a burger lover like me. The patty did not have enough taste and juiciness. The buns were burnt to bitterness. The fries was cold like it was served yesterday. It looked good but it was the worst choice to get. Definitely was not worth the price.

The Seventh Hero - DIY Smores

 DIY S’mores (Php 190.00)

I fancied how creative this setup was. That tin can was actually a little bonfire to roast the mallow. While this was just mallows, crackers and bits of chocolates, it was very enjoyable.

8 Cuts – Mall of Asia

A friend and I planned a catch up night in 8 Cuts – Mall of Asia. I did not have any idea that it is a sister company of Burger Bar (which by far, is my favorite burger place) until we reached the place. Everything looks and feels similar with its sister company from the interiors, to the plating, and even to the menu. 8 Cuts - Mall of Asia   We both had The Cheese Burger (Php 195.00) which had 1/4lbs of beef patty and BurgerBar’s original house dressing. We upgraded our meals to throw in a can of Coke Zero and Skinny Fries for Php 90.00. The service was quite fast and the staff were very pleasant, too. Though almost everyone says that it is just similar to Burger Bar, I have to disagree. The patty I had was too oily to the point that oil overpowers the taste of the beef. I don’t remember having the same extreme oily feeling while dining in Burger Bar. Nonetheless, I still recommend this burger place. It’s worth the try!

Brooklyn’s – Robinsons Las Piñas


Brooklyn's

 

Checked out one of the newly opened malls and saw Brooklyn’s. It was one of my sought after pizza place. Too bad their service was really slow and had to cancel our order of White Pizza – their bestseller.

Brooklyn's - Shrimp Pasta

 

White Shrimp (PHP 275.00). This one was really good. I thought of having it as a staple order every time I go to Brooklyn’s. The creamy + salty + seafoody taste was exquisite!

Teddy’s Bigger Burgers

Teddy's Bigger Burgers

Before watching Big Hero 6, we decided to have a quick snack at Teddy’s Bigger Burgers in Greenbelt, Makati. The place was a bit cramped but we declined to take a seat outside. Luckily, a table was vacated few minutes after we came in.

I ordered for a medium cooked Teddy’s Original Burger that comes with some french fries and iced tea (PHP 365.00). Given the price, I expected so much since I tasted really good burgers that were even cheaper. However, I would say that their burger was just okay. It wasn’t bad at all but it wasn’t really good either. It surely was big but it lacked taste and juiciness for me. Perhaps, if the price was lower, I would recommend it.

Mango Waffle

You could never go wrong with waffles and ice cream together. It’s easy to make waffles from pancake batter or maybe just buy ready-to-eat ones from the the nearest grocery store. Top it with a scoop of ice cream and – voila! Your sweet cravings will be satisfied in no time.

Snacking on Doughnut & Grapes

Grapes and Doughnut

I found these on the fridge when I was looking for something to eat. According to some sources I found online, doughnuts were used to be called ‘olykoeks’ which is a Dutch word that means ‘oily cakes’. While it doesn’t look like very nutritious, volunteer girls fed doughnuts to hungry American soldiers during World War I. Interesting, yeah?

Enough with doughnuts and let’s talk about grapes. Grapes are berries that increases the levels of nitric acid. With that, it helps minimizing chances of heart attacks by preventing blood clots. It can also alleviate fatigue, migraine and kidney illnesses. While there are many benefits of eating grapes, consuming it too much can have laxative effect which can either be beneficial or disadvantageous.

Call the Nurse – Burgers & Brewskies

Call the Nurse - Burgers & Brewskies

 

It is a Friday that I have been waiting for because my colleagues scheduled a night out. Our first stop was Burgers & Brewskies which is located at Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City.

Given its name, you would already know what to expect – burgers! I have been in this place for several times already and I have been ordering the same thing. I ordered for a Mac and cheese burger called Call the Nurse and bottle of Stella Artois. Burger and beer always work together for me.

Call the Nurse cost me PHP 290.00 and it’s definitely worth it. It has 1/3 lb 100% imported beef patty topped with honey Sriracha Bacon and seared mac and cheese as shown in the photo. The patty was really tender and but not as juicy as the patties of Burger Bar. Nonetheless, I recommend this place to those who would have a chance to go to Burgos Circle.

Arceli’s Peanut Butter

Arceli's Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is one of the all-time favorite spreads around the globe. Although there are different kinds of peanut butter out there, nothing beats homemade ones.

Arceli’s Peanut Butter is an original recipe created by my grandmother back in Pagsanjan, Laguna. It is crafted the old-fashioned way. Unlike other peanut butters that are either smooth or crunchy, Arceli’s achieved a very natural feel on the mouth because of its gritty texture.
