Laya Personal Dining

My friend, Sheila, told me about this restaurant long time ago but I only mentioned it to Jeff recently. We initially planned to do the pamanhikan here but opted for the traditional way which is my house. We did an ocular a month ago to check out the place. Laya Personal Dining is in Pinto Art Gallery in Antipolo. It’s not very easy to find the place so go check Google Maps okay? The place is really very interesting. Here are a few pictures I took on our first visit. The Pinto Art Gallery entrance.  Stairs to the gallery and the restaurant. Fountain.  Jeff decided to take me to Laya for our ninth month, a week before Laya says goodbye to the public. Yep, they are closing down. He reserved online and sent them the downpayment of Php1000 (which is 50% of the meal) through bank transfer. We paid the remaining half on the day itself. They sent him the menu to choose from. We chose two different sets, Antipolo Naming Mahal for Jeff and Laya Signatures …

Wing Hub’s First Weekend at Metrowalk

So there’s this new resto at Metrowalk dubbed Wing Hub. With the number of chicken establishments growing once again, we decided to give it a try. Apparently, it just opened the previous Monday, so it was their first weekend. Of course we ordered their customary wings. We got Garlic Parmesan and Taiwanese. We also ordered the Black Box Trio Burger, which was actually an order of 3 Sliders composed of Chicken, Beef, and Lamb. The wings, to me, were too bready for my liking. Instead of looking forward to eating the skin, I actually peeled it off before eating the wing. In fairness to the wings, they were really flavorful, with the Garlic Parmesan really tasting garlicky, and the Taiwanese tasting sweet and nutty. And even with the amount of breading they put in, I can still taste the flavors in the meat itself. The sliders were really good, and I guess it was a good idea to keep the burgers in slider form since too much of one flavor might not be so good. …

The Sun Village – Boracay

On our last night in Boracay, Jeff asked me if I want to try the Mongolian buffet. I was kinda apprehensive but I said yes afterwards. We again walked to Station 2 to find The Sun Village. Just like the normal buffet, you get what you want from the table. But here, you get it raw and then you ask them to stir fry them. I didn’t know what to get so I just took whichever I think is edible. I put some teriyaki and chili sauce too. Candlelit dinner? Sort of. BTW, those are frozen iced tea.  The restaurant. We spotted Kitchie Nadal somewhere there with a dreadlocked guy.  We had three bowls of this. Buffet is for Php250 per head.  This was originally posted on www.nom-mage.com. Author decided to merge The Misis Outtakes and Nom-mage together. 

Epic Boracay

For dinner, Jeff insisted we eat at Epic. He later explained that his friend works for this company though she is not stationed in Boracay. I think she’s on the marketing department or something. Epic Boracay. Station 2. It’s near Lonely Planet.  I think this is frozen iced tea. Or bubbled. Hehe. Jeff’s cheeseburger. The patty was very thick! I went for the classic adobo. Yumyum! Just like what Carlo said, women in Boracay love dressing up for dinner. I guess he’s right. 😉 Rocky and Carlo. See, even Rocky dressed up!  They have a foosball in the restaurant. Jeff and Carlo played at first. Rocky and I later joined in. Jeff and I won two out of three games. The bar.  Jeff and I went back the next night to grab some drinks. We’re cool, yeah? Haha. We arrived early so we were able to avail of their happy hour promo which starts at 2PM and ends at 8PM. You can buy any local beer and selected mixes and get one for free! Really …

Real Coffee – Boracay

We’ve been hearing rave reviews about Real Coffee so we had to visit. My friend, Darleen, told me they have the best omelet. What’s bad about it is that we also had omelet as our breakfast at the hotel. Anyway, this coffee shop was in Station 2. You have to ask around because you need to pass a small alley to find it. We ordered omelet, coffee and the famous calamansi muffin. I do not know if I were just full at that time because I kind’a didn’t appreciate the food. Or maybe it’s because the crew there put pesto on my omelet while I told her not to. The famous calamansi muffin. Jeff ordered a box of this and took it home. I didn’t because I didn’t like it, so I suppose my siblings won’t like it too.  I ordered chicken omelet and Jeff had tuna omelet. It looked the same so I just posted one photo. See, there’s pesto on my omelet.  This was originally posted on www.nom-mage.com. Author decided to merge The …

Plato D’ Boracay

The next day, I had to drag (and threaten) Jeff out of bed. He wouldn’t stop sleeping so I had to tell him I’m going out and he can spend the whole day hugging the bed. When I went out of the shower, he was up and smiling at me. Girls, threat works well early in the morning. Apparently, Rocky also did the same thing to Carlo. Hahaha! Carlo, Rocky, Jeff and I agreed to try ATV this morning. We had breakfast and off we went to Station 2 for a good ATV deal. So we got it for Php350 + entrances to the aviary and to Mt. Pulo. I think we paid Php410 each. Or more. But less than Php500. Photo courtesy of Carlo. He was missing at the moment as his ATV stopped in some uphill part of the street. You can see Rocky was super worried here. The guide went to find him and they we’re back after five minutes. That was crazy.  Fortunately, we arrived safely to Mt. Pulo. That was …
