Dinner last Sunday at Yakimix Greenbelt. I was so disappointed with the selection of food choices here. Few choices lang ng food and the quality is really, really not good ☹️ they don't even have tea? Such a let down; good thing somebody paid for our meal.

Makchang Korean Restaurant

2.0 Stars

My sisters love everything Korean so we decided to eat at Makchang in Malate as we were in the area. It is conveniently located in front Robinsons Manila. Upon entering, I noticed how pleasing the ambiance is – it has a modern industrial feel it. A few days before, we dined at Bulgogi Brothers (which is superb) so I had high expectations for Korean food.

They have a limited menu so we just had the following:

〰 Two orders of samgyupsal. The thickness of the meat is just right for cooking and has the right proportion of fat to meat ratio.

〰 One LA Galbi. Maybe this is an unpopular opinion but I personally did not like the taste of LA Galbi.. parang medyo matamis? My sisters said it was okay though. Maybe I just don’t want my meat sweet haha.

All orders are served with the traditional Korean banchan (side dishes) including kimchi, miso soup, and steamed egg. They don't have sesame leaves though 128557

So for the things I dislike: how noisy and magulo the staff are and how we had to ask thrice to accommodate our requests (water, bill). Food took a long time to be served too, considering the fact that it is to be served raw naman. And the toilet is disgusting.128533

National Museum of the Philippines

Last Saturday, I visited the National Museum of Fine Arts with my sisters. This is part of the National Museum Complex which includes the National Museum of Anthropology (formerly Museum of the Filipino People), National Museum of Natural History (opening soon), and the Planetarium.

The National Museum of Fine Arts is located in the old Senate building and is majestic in terms of structure. There are four levels in the museum accessible via stairs or the glass elevator (with nice view of the patio)

127807 The ground floor houses some archaeological repositories and laboratories of the museum researchers. Currently there is an exhibit of some paintings depicting scenes of Noli Me Tangere.

127807 The Second Level which has the most exhibits contains the famous Luna Spoilarium, more works of Felix-Resurrecion Hidalgo, Juan Luna, and other classic painters and sculptures.

127807 The Third Floor houses some more exhibits including temporary ones. There are also some modern paintings. Oh and Juan Luna’s Parisian Woman is here housed in the same room with Manansala… which is so weird, and to be honest I think only a few people know it is here. (I also thought it was still in the GSIS Museum)

127807 The last floor houses a few contemporary artists including the rubber cut of Neil Doloricon.

I am so glad to see how well-maintained our National Museum is. The toilets are clean, the rooms are air conditioned, and it is almost at par with some foreign museums. It can be tiring and overwhelming so for me, one should take their time to really appreciate the art works. There are plenty of seats around the exhibit rooms where you can take some rest. And the fact that is free should encourage more Filipinos to visit this place.

A few things missing in our museum includes a museum café where people can have some coffee, rest, discuss or hang out. We also don’t have a museum shop for people to buy souvenirs and memorabilia. Sayang because these can generate funds for the museum.

Hello Looloo! After weeks of field work, I am back in the city and so happy to be back here! The other day, we had a filling dinner at Chili’s the other night with family. We had the following:

127775 Quesadilla Explosion Salad 🥗
which has grilled chicken breast, salsa, lots of cheese and served with cheese quesadillas. Served with lime balsamic salsa. It’s okay lang.

127775 The Grilled BBQ Chicken Salad 🥙
Because we want to be healthy HAHAHA. to be honest, tastes similar to the Quesadilla Explosion Salad. That’s it, nothing special haha.

127775 We had two Mix and Match Fajitas 🌯
One with grilled chicken and seared shrimps, and the other with grilled steak and seared shrimps. They were bought served sizzling hotttt with bell peppers and onions. They also served it with soft tortillas and a variety of condiments served in a cute tower. It was so good and so filling!

127775 Lastly, we ordered the 3-piece ranchero chicken tacos 🌮🌮🌮
which is my favorite because of the chimichurri sauce! I love the tangy funny taste of cilantro on food.

As always, their serving is American size which meant one meal is good for two normal sized Filipinos. After dinner we are given the complimentary 30% off on our next meal which means we shall return! 127775127775127775

Review for their new drinks:

127851127853 granola dark mocha drink: doesn't taste like mocha for me, parang chocolate-y yung after taste with some rice crisps? I'm not complaining though, it's yummy esp when you put it in a freezer 128523

127827127815 açai mixed berry yogurt: i like this drink a lot! It has the faint sourness of yogurt and i think everything blends well together. The pearls burst like those pearls in their hibiscus iced tea. Oh the name sounds healthy but knowing starbucks i really doubt it haha. #caloriespamore

My barista said that for the first time, they like both drinks, and for me they are both winners talaga 128523

Wild Flour Restaurant

After helping a friend move her stuff in her new apartment, we walked to Wildflour in Legaspi to have lunch. I had the tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich with a side salad. SO GOOD I WANT TO CRY HUHU. The dish is so simple and so flavorful. The grilled cheese + tomato soup is always a good combination, which the saltiness of the cheese and the buttery sourness of the tomato. I think what made it a hit was the addition of the zesty taste of the salad. Everything was just balanced on the palate. For drinks I had guava and lime soda which was also refreshing. Then for dessert, we share the almond matcha bread.

Review for Sparkling Matcha Lemonade 10024127861127819

While waiting for my husband, had breakfast at Starbucks Matalino and ordered the Spam Jalapeño Bagel and my usual Matcha Espresso Fusion. Before leaving I was curious to see sparkling Matcha Lemonade. I thought it's a new drink but apparently meron na nung May pero in select branches only. I got a grande order of it. To be honest, it was okay. Not something I will not order again. Refreshing yes, but the taste of matcha with lemon is something strange haha. 🤡

Decided to eat at Lido for a quick lunch after a meeting in the area. I had the Lido 4 treasure rice which had the lechon macau, pork asado, and chorizo with fried egg. I also had the hototay soup 128523. It was good, comforting lunch. I had a take out of 1/4 pork asado too. Overall good dining experience.

Suzhou Dimsum

One rainy night last week, Oliver and I decided to eat at Suzhou since I am craving for some xiao long bao realness. Located at the ground floor of Red Planet Hotel, it's not difficilt to find. We arrived a little over 6pm and there are only a few people inside, mostly Chinese. We ordered the following:

127836 beef noodle soup: we had it divided into two bowls, and wow ang dami ng serving 128563. The taste tastes like your typical Chinese noodles, nothing special in it but the warmth of the broth feels good to our cold stomach.

127832 scallion pancake: the only thing I didn't like about this is the fact that it's too greasy 128533 i love the taste and that stretchy feeling of the egg.

127845 seafood siomai: wala hindi masarap haha. Ordinary siomai with a bibi shrimp on top. Yun lang.

127833 xiao long bao: game changer! The wrapper is thick enough to hold the hot soup inside without breaking. And it was a love at first bite 🤤

🥗 steamed kuchay dumplings: another favorite.

All in all it was good and cheap. We didn't even finish everything. We had to take out some kuchay and pancake.
