Passion Fruit Tea was good but I wish the passion fruit taste was stronger. The highlight of our visit was the Chicken Chops! I think we had three or four orders of this. 128586 Loved it! I wish I could know the specific brand of spice used so I could try to recreate this super delish snack. 128557 I also liked the pepper corn, similar in taste with the chicken chops. 128523

Crustasia

Everytime I come to Crustasia or Red Crab, the crabs are always great but the prices are really steep. Our bill is always a minimum of P2000. I could get the same quality in Seafood Island or Seaside Paluto for half the price but the extra price we pay here is given back thru the superb service and add ons provided. Before eating crab, you will be worn a mini apron, placed a napkin in the lap and given different tools to enable you to eat every inch of meat in the crab. After eating, you will provided lemon water to soak your hands in, hot towel to wipe your hands and candies to eliminate the "lansa" in your breath. The servers are not the the jolly type but all of them are very very accommodating and attentive. The type that looks at every customer just waiting if they have a concern or request. They show professionalism in every move they make that results in a fine dining vibe. Once in a while it's nice to feel and experience this kind of service so for me the extra price we paid was always justified. 128076128076128076

Late lunch with friends. Photo grabbed from Abie G! 128513

Ordered the Grilled Beef Brochette. It's beef in salpicao marinade with garlic chips, crushed black peppercorns & garlic rice. It tasted salpicao-ish but could use a bit more seasoning AND softening! Some pieces were really hard to slice. I also didn't like the sauce. I liked the garlic rice though and the serving is good for two people. Overall, it was okay but not memorable. I tasted the Crispy Chicken with Mushroom Sauce and Chili Cheese Sauce. They were both good! I wish I ordered either of the two instead. Fff. What I really liked here is the value for money. All of our orders had a generous serving and the prices are just around P250. Based on the ambience of the place, I expected it to be more expensive.

Definitely the best fish and chips in town for me! Crisp breading but no tooooo crispy and soft melt in your mouth fish. Love it! The New York and Philadelphia Fish and Chips are also great. Love the fillings! Their calamari is also my favorite so far. And I love dipping both in their signature lemon butter sauce! Yum yum yum!!! Speaking of lemon butter, the Mussels in Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce is also good! Ohhh! I got nothing but love for this place! 10084️

Ramen or Noodle

Wooooo!! 300th!! 128583127775127882

Arrived 4:30 in the afternoon and there was no line! I ordered the Akamaru Shinaji and Tori Karaage. Love the broth! Creamy, rich and a little spicy. I liked the medium cooked thin noodles even though I prefer the thicker ones. I also liked the chashu! Very tender almost melting in my mouth and the taste of the broth really stuck to it. My friend ordered the Shiromaru. It was lighter than the Akamaru. It was okay but I like the latter better. The chicken was good. Crispy and juicy. Love the breading!

The place was okay. The usual modern Japanese theme but the wall of bowls was a stand out. The service was also good. Very accomodating staff.

Though I loved the ramen, number 1 padin Yushoken for me! Ippudo is now my solid number 2 but it's very near me so almost number 1. Haha. 128586128523128076

Coffee

After eating dinner at Katipunan, my friend wanted to have coffee so I suggested Craft. I'm not a coffee drinker so I ordered the Frozen Brazo and Calamansi Shake. The shake was perfect and I love that it was served in a jar! So kyot! The Frozen Brazo was also gooood! Compared to the usual Brazo de Mercedes, this was fuller in taste, less in air and has a crust and custard that are to die for! 128539 My friend liked the coffee and she loved the art in the foam! 128583 I liked the place especially the wall of art but it was a bit cramped. When we arrived it was jam-packed. I might come back again if ever a friend wants to have coffee. I'll try the food, it looks good! 128523

I ordered the 39 Spices Beef Noodle with Beef Slices and Dumplings with low spicyness.

I liked the spicyness of the broth - may paaaaang! 128541 I also liked the dumpling. Hmm everything else.. Not so much. Haha. The beef was tender and tasty but it was lacking in something. Or maybe di ko lang talaga type! Hmmm. It tasted like lomi to me! 128514 But less malapot. Even the noodles looked lomi-ish. I prefer thick noodles but I didn't expect for the noodles to be really thick. Overall it was okay naman but I guess Taiwanese noodles is just not for me. Err.

Steak and Chicken!

We ordered the Flame Grilled Angus Beef Rib Eye and the Southern Fried Chicken. I liked the chicken! It tasted like Jollibee's but with less breading and Pancake House's but with more juicy meat. The biscuits with honey were great! It was a good complement to the chicken. The beef wasn't cooked as we requested and it got cold easily but it was still good. Though it was a bit thin it was still juicy. I love the sauce! The ceasar salad included was also good. Just the right amount of dressing, croutons and bacon bits. As usual, the mac and cheese was great as well as the service! 128077

Watched The Maze Runner in 4DX here. Originally, we planned to watch it just in 2D Atmos but we saw that the price for 4DX was also P400 so of course we grabbed the opportunity! 128527 Though some of the movements were not really in sync with the movie and the mist was scented like oregano and a bit like body odor, it was a really fun experience! 128514 Really! Sometimes you will truly feel like you're part of the movie. 128076 As for the movie, I liked it! The cinematography was great. I like the fast paced sequences and the mysteries revolving around the movie the most. Can't wait for the next!
