Hello Looloo!!! 128525

Chef & Brewer is all about food and music! Good thing they have expanded to a new branch in Industria Mall, Circulo Verde. It's about 5 minutes away from Eastwood. 128205

For a night of music and good food when you're around QC, Chef & Brewer Industria is your best bet. They have a LIVE BAND playing every night, a happy hour promo from 3-10pm daily, a wide selection of food whether you crave Filipino or Italian and so much more. 127926

Tried the C&B Pizza and loved it! C&B's old time favorite pizza! Lettuce, sausage, ham, pepperoni, black olives, shrimp and mushroom! 127829

The carrot on the cake? There's ample parking as opposed to congested Eastwood. Yay! 10084

Chili's Grill & Bar

I've lost count of how many times we've dined in Chili's this year but this place has surely become my "comfort place." So when I heard that they invited #TeamClingy to take a sneak peek of their #ChilisBurgerDay2015, I was elated. 128513

Great Food + This Bunch + a little bit of alcohol? We sure were in for a great night. As any #clingyeats would start, once the food comes in, expect us to get on full combat mode to take pictures. This is awesomely led by THE Chichi T.

To warm up our bellies, we had the Triple Dipper and Bottomless Tostada Chips with heaps of Queso and Chili. Between you and me, those alone are okay with me already but of course, we're here to try the stars of the night: the BURGERS.

Choose among their array of mouthful burgers such as: the Old Timer, Mushroom Swiss, Bacon, Big Mouth Bites and Triple Smoked Burger and you will never go wrong. If you want to appreciate the meaty goodness of their patty, then I suggest you go for the Old Timer but if you're like me who says yes to anything bacon, then the Bacon Burger is for you. Those strips of crispy bacon topped with aged cheddar cheese just seals the deal for me.

Was already filled to the brim when suddenly, desserts of different kinds were brought to our table. Oh my golly gee! Time to unbutton the pants. I tried the High and Mighty Pie and the Fried Cheesecake since these were the ones that I haven't tried yet from Chili's and I must say, the High and Mighty pie was insanely good. It's made of vanilla ice cream piled high on crushed Oreo cookie crust drizzled with caramel and hot fudge.

So be sure to make your calendar on April 22, Wednesday for Chili's 8th Annual Burger Day and get to try their burgers for only P175 each. Drag your friends, your officemates, your boyfriend, your family or whoever and don't miss this amazing treat. 128077

Thanks again Chili's PH, Peanut D and Roegan T for this. Yay!!!

Rita Trio paired with unlimited tostada chips makes a happy (tipsy) afternoon!

When in Chili's, my staple order are these never-enough chips, a bowl of their chili and mini burgers with fries and onion on the side. I guess that's enough for two hungry adults. Between you and me, we can actually devour 2-3 refill of the chips. 128539

I asked about when they'll have their unlimited frozen margarita back and was told that it'll probably be back by May. Yay! More reasons to come back.

Breakfast at Antonio's

5.0 Stars
Fusion

I love breakfast food but I have a problem waking up. Can you relate???

Anyway, this is quite a stretch if you are coming from Tagaytay proper especially if you catch the Nasugbu traffic. However, we're oftentimes willing because this place always satisfies our tummies.

We usually get their roesti (potato pancake) and bacon for me and homemade corned beef with egg for ze husband. I love roesti! Although Antonio's version is quite different from the roesti I started to love in Marché, their version is also a winner. They also serve their homemade bread and gave a serving of banana macadamia marmalade. It was delicious! I also got a shot of hot chocolate and it was superb! Super bitin with just a shot but it's a little pricey so I'll settle with one.

Yep, this place is one of those that you don't get tired going to again and again. First, the food is great. Second, the service is awesome. Lastly, the view is spectacular. 128522

Chateau Hestia Garden Restaurant

European

My husband and friends did a surprise party for my birthday here. I thought we were meeting up with my hubby's friends when lo and behold, my HS friends were there.

Anyway, since we were spending the night on a friend's house in Tagaytay, this was the secret place where they decided to plot the surprise. Going here was quite a struggle especially since the road isn't well lit and the signs are easy to miss.

We had dinner and opted to get individual orders. A friend and I shared a sausage platter and pesto pasta. The others got salad, pizza and my husband got their specialty, the Hestia burger. I have to be honest... The food didn't blow me away. I feel everything tasted bland. 128533 even the specialty burger was meh. I asked the hubby how it was, he said it was okay. I thought he was just being polite hehe 128513 A friend and her husband went for a set meal from appetizer to main, I think they were the only ones who were satisfied with their heart's content.

I gave extra star for the service though. They were superb. Not to mention the owner was there too who was able to engage with us on a small chitchat.

The place is a date place, very romantic and ideal if you are looking for something off the beaten track. However, for the price and the location, there are a million other places left to explore.

Seven Corners

5.0 Stars
Buffet

Super late post since this happened last December.

Anyway, hotel buffets are almost always awesome and Seven Corners did not disappoint. The last time I was here was a couple of years ago when I was still handling some Gokongwei owned accounts. From memory, I remembered it was good and now, it was reinforced!

This is one of the nights when you wish you don't get full but as to any buffet, pacing is really key. I started off with salad [insert pretentious smile] and soup. Then went on with the steak. Yeah, for a buffet, the steak was good! I also liked it with mint and a dash of sea salt. I can eat this everyday, I swear!

I lost track of which one went next but I remembered eating maki and tempura. I also had seafood marinara. To let the fullness of my tummy dwindle a bit, I snacked on cheese. Sweet baby cheez-us! I love thee. And finally.. Did a last salvo of... Steak again. Haha! I was so full but had little more space for ice cream. Yay! 128522

456 Restaurant

4.0 Stars
Filipino

Another one from the 15 Amazing Eats in Baguio list. Here's the Lomi from 456 Restaurant.

First, do not set your expectations up. This place is not a fancy restaurant. When you enter, there's a bakery just like your neighborhood panaderya right in front. Then, there are lots and lots of tables for the 'canteen-like' restaurant. When you reach towards the end of the restaurant, it seems like a dingy bar with a bunch of old men drinking beer, Gold Eagle Beer to be specific. 128540

We ordered for a large bowl of Lomi for 7 of us to share. Look at how humongous the serving was! The funny part is it only costs around P300! Super great value for money, not to mention it also tasted good. Perfect for that chilly Baguio weather at 11pm.
My sis in law ordered congee but please, ditch this. It was very bland like hospital food. Eeeep.

Bag O' Shrimps

5.0 Stars
Seafood

Sorry, no photo of the food! 9996️ We were so, so hungry!

We celebrated my friend's birthday here upon his suggestion. We were all game since we all love shrimp! We got 2 orders of Bag O' Mama mild spicy and 1 Buttered Garlic. We finished it all and we were just 4 girls and 1 guy! Talk about takaw????

I like the Bag 'O Mama because it was really flavorful. The mild spiciness level perfectly complemented the taste, I lost count of how many I ate. I would have wanted to eat more but my acid reflux was acting up 128533

The service was good, they were quick and sensitive to your needs. The place was nicely designed and well lit. The price of each bag is around P500 with roundabout 20-25 pieces per bag so I think that's pretty reasonable. So yes, I'll probably go here again. Yum yum!

Good Taste Cafe and Restaurant

When we arrived, we were welcomed with an insanely long line. It looked like a grand fans day and I tell you, the line was longer than the opening of Ippudo hehe! 128522 Unbelievably though, the line was fast. Everyone seems like they are in a hurry so basically, people just come and go.

I didn't set my expectations high because a friend of mine recently went here and didn't enjoy. We ordered the usual Chinese resto food: Yang Chow rice, buttered chicken, liempo/fried pork, noodles and dimsum. We got fried siomai as appetizer and I don't know if I was just hungry but I found the siomai delicious more so when dipped on the soy sauce with chili and calamansi. Yum! The other items were equally good, especially the noodles. We were done in an hour or less! The bills for 5 of us with so much food ordered was just around P1k.

Great for family lunch and dinner since most items serve 3-5 pax. The crowd can get a little noisy, quite typical of restaurants like this. As mentioned, service was quick.
