Roku Sushi and Ramen

The cheese kani tempura is yummy! But the ramen was just so-so. I think it's the noodles.. They're too fat for ramen. Miso based soups were better than the shoyu based.

Took my family out to Kuya J's restaurant for dinner last Friday night. This is my third time to dine at Kuya J's and i was hoping that they would love the food as much as i enjoyed my first two dining experiences here.

We ordered: Pinakbet, Baked Scallops, Crispy Dinuguan, Sinigang na Salmon sa Miso, Sizzling Sisig. My brother wanted to try the Cantaloupe Shake. And for dessert we had the Fried Halohalo.

We loved everything! So yummy and the price is so affordable. The servings are good for 2-3 persons already, as well as the rice platter.

Baked scallops for the win! Always! Ang sarap talaga! The sisig too! And the fried halo halo became an instant favorite of ours too! Grabe the twist and the explosion of flavors in my mouth. Sarap!

Would definitely eat here again!

Wanted to try for ourselves what the rave about this new hangout place at UP Town Center's all about.. And since we're up for some drinks we decided to spend our Thursday night here.

I've been seeing a lot of posts about their Salted Egg Chicken Skin and it made me want to try it instantly. And... Ordered their butterbeer to pair with the pulutan :)

The butterbeer is yummy!!! Will definitely come back and try the other flavors (macadamia, salted caramel, strawberry)

The salted egg chicken skin was so-so for me.

Next time, we'll try to dine in here again and try tgeir other dishes.

Bought a voucher from Deal Grocer for P250 (500-worth meals) at Madeca, Podium so we decided to eat there last Saturday.

We ordered the spinach and mushroom quesadilla, lechon kawali soft tacos and sisig burrito. The servings are very generous! As in! We were so stuffed after.

The spinach and mushroom quesadillas is very yummy!!! 5/5!

The lechon kawali soft tacos are the bomb! Super generous serving and yummy also!! 5/5!!!

The sisig burrito is also the bomb!!! 5/5 also!!!

Cant wait to try their other menus. And the mojitos/margaritas as well :)

Red Baron Ribs and Steaks

4.0 Stars
Steak

This is our second time to dine at Red Barons, a gem hidden in the quiet corners of D. Tuazon. 128522

So the first time we dined here was my birthday dinner with friends. We ordered Lamb steaks in zesty Mediterranean rub with curly fries as side and 2 orders of the Rib eye steak (one in zesty mediterranean rub, mine was classic honey garlic) with mashed potato and mac & cheese as sides. We were asked for the done-ness of our steaks and we all opted for Medium. While waiting for the orders, we were given 1 jar of dried peanuts each to munch on. Hehe.

Our steaks were cooked perfectly!! But i like my steak better because it wasnt too spicy for me. My friends both chose the mediterranean rub, it wasnt bad at all it's just too strong for my taste buds hehe. But they liked their steaks naman! It was so easy to cut into the steaks cause it was super soft and bursting with flavors 128522 among all the sides i liked the curly fries the most! Tastes like Mcdo's twister fries 128525 the mac and cheese that i dont like... Tasted bland. The mashed potato was okay, it can improve.

Tonight, we dined again at Red Barons despite the very bad weather. Buti na lang it's near our house hehe. We ordered Lamb steaks again with curly fries as side and Buffalo wings.

The lamb steak was cooked perfectly again though it wasnt that hot when it was served to us. The curly fries were of course delish!!! we liked the buffalo wings too. Not too spicy and not so tangy. The only thing i didnt like was that the end of the wing part was cold.. So i knew it was frozen. But the other end was hot (reheated i guess). Yun lang.. We didnt call their attention na kasi we were halfway done. But 2 of our wings were like that. I hope they improve that.

And oh, they serve imported beers and wines too! So perfect for chill out nights with friends though the space is too small for big groups.

They have interesting shakes too!! Like the ice scramble shake. Would definitely come back for that! And the desserts! And maybe bring my family with me there next time 128522

Casa Quesadilla

4.0 Stars
Mexican

We love mexican food and we are big fans of Maginhawa food joints! We've been hearing about Casa Quesadilla from friends so we decided to try it one night.

We ordered the chicken quesadilla and mexican beef burrito. The quesadillas is a winner!! Perfect with the salsa and their garlic sauce. I love the cheese too! The burrito was a tummy filler. Sarap also!

Burger

So this is an overdue review hehe. Since we love burgers and we're always in Maginhawa, we decided to try this new Burger joint. The place is really cute! I love love the menu board and the quotes/taglines posted on the walls. Haha. Witty witty!!

We ordered Big B's Bacon and Beef quarter pounder (P99) cause who wouldnt love freakin bacon with the beef patty right?! Haha. We also ordered the Poutine ng Ina Mo fries (P65) haha sobrang cute ng menu diba! And and they have A&W my all time favorite drink!! 128525

The fries came first so ayun we ate it agad and we loved it! 10/10 fries pa lang! And then our burgers came next (yes tig-isa kami kasi gutom talaga kami haha) our server gave us this gun type sauce container which is their Awesomesauce. It has pesto so omg of course i loveeee it! The burgers werent bad at all. Sarap for a very affordable price. Though it tasted more like hungarian sausage than backn hehe but nevertheless it was okay. The only comment from the girlfriend is that the patty crumbles when eaten. 9786

Wasnt able to try Pink Potion with feelings.. Nakakacurious haha so maybe next time? 128523
