Going Korean

We actually planned to go to the spa but Callospa was fully booked. I never thought that we needed to reserve or something. So anyway, I suggested we go to a Korean restaurant. We first went to Hanoel, which is infront of Mercury Drugstore and National Bookstore. Antipolo peeps, you know this place, yeah? Food was so-so. I wasn’t very happy about it. And I was so frustrated they don’t have that grilled Korean bacon (I later remembered that it was called Samgyupsal. I haven’t eaten in a Korean restaurant in years!) So I said maybe we should go to the other Korean restaurant near Ever Supermarket. First stop: Hanoel’s Coffee Shop and Restaurant Chapchae. (Or Japchae?)Price: Php150.00 Hanoel’s kimchi. Price: Free Kimbap. Price: Php30.00/roll Bulgogi that doesn’t look like Bulgogi. Really frustrating. Price: Php100.00 The resto’s name was a little weird, The Story of Legend. To my surprise, it was really goooooood! Legendary! Haha! They have complimentary kimchi, tofu, bean sprouts and brocolli, unlike in Hanoel. And food is cheap! The cherry on top? The woman who manages …

Hotdog, Lamb and Desserts

I found a couple of random cellphone pictures of food. These are some of those we ate but I forgot. Weird. These are my favorites. How can I ever forget about these? So this post will include something American, something Greek and something Italian. 😉 19 December 2010. Sabret. Eastwood Cinema. I don’t eat pork. So obviously, I haven’t been eating hotdogs. After watching Chronicles of Narnia, I noticed this hotdog stand and Jeff said that it’s beef. I never had second thoughts, we had to eat it. Haha. Before serving the hotdog, the crew asked us what condiments will she put. I said I want everything; chili con carne, catsup, mayo, and mustard. It’s also served with chips. Very American. 26 December 2010. Go Greek! Glorietta 4 Foodcourt. This is my ultimate favorite. Like I can eat this for a week. No, make it a month. It’s called the Lamb Gyro Plate. I forgot the price. No, actually I don’t know the price because it’s Jeff who pays for the food. But I guess it’s around …

Black Beard’s Seafood Island: Where Pigging Out is a Must

After Jeff’s basketball game this morning, roaming around the Manila Ocean Park and watching the musical show, sure we’re super hungry. The last time we’ve had seafood was two months ago, so I asked Jeff if he wants this resto. He agreed so I reserved. Yes, you can reserve here! Black Beard’s Seafood Island in Market Market! Hungry faces. We arrived before 8PM, and I was about to faint because of hunger. We ordered Dapitan’s Pride. Sorry we don’t have a picture of the whole thing. We’re just too hungry. This is what we got for Php795.00. Plus Php99.00 each for bottomless iced tea. Grilled tilapia. San Mig clams! Yes, clams cooked in San Mig Light. The Bicolana in me says this Laing is goooood. It would’ve been better spicy tho.  Steamed crabs. This one’s really frustrating. It’s too dry. Maybe it was steamed a little too much and all the moisture was gone. Meat was a little rubbery. Ugh. Crispy shrimps. This too is a little frustrating. I wanted Jeff to shell the shrimps for me, …
