The gluttony run continues in La Fiesta Filipino Cuisine. 127856🦐127817128022 128029(whoops, typo, no bees)

I can wholeheartedly recommend Lechon de Leche. I normally eat a bit of everything and don't look back, but I did have to go back to the litson station kasi masarap naman eh! I got lucky and snitched a tiny ear. Crunchy *yum-yum*

Dinuguan is another meal that I can recommend. Not oversalted, just perfect.

The balut was delicious but my ibon didn't even have hair (mukhang sorbang bata siya).

Their dessert game could've been represented better. Walang bibingka o puto bumbong pero baka paskong ulam lang ito.

Please forgive me my Filipino kapamilya, nilagyan ko ang mga kendi sa aking halo-halo. 128586
I just wanted to try how it tastes and my advice is not to be a gaya-gaya (tastes bad 🤢).

Filipino food is 10084️ Would love to go back when the chance comes.

Starbucks Coffee

Coffee

This is usually my go to branch, although I've probably been to all of Starbuckses in BGC. It's always super busy and you're really lucky if you can get yourself a couch.

I don't visit Starbucks as much as I used to but I still like this franchise, and not for coffee! 128516
When I saw on Looloo that there's a new pistachio cake, I the urge to try it immediately. Next day you can find me ordering one.

The cake was really delicious. Not sweet at all, minimum of chocolate (the thin base was chocolatey dough), great creamy pistachio flavour. One downside: so expensive (mga P170 para sa isang piraso)!

In fact, I wanted to try this cake so much that I forgot to take a picture and took a bite from it before doing so 🤫127856

My second visit to this place but I'm reviewing it for the first time.

This place is extremely expensive and it is out of my league but they allure me with their interesting ingredients and meals. I wouldn't say I go here to enjoy food. I go here to discover new things that exist in the world of food 128556

On my first visit 3 months ago I discovered kombucha. Then I started brewing it at home. Now I came here again to compare which one is better, and honestly, although I messed up a lot of batches of my kombucha, I like it more than here. I noticed they add some syrup to it, to make it sweeter, but it was still massim na maasim! I can drink it but I prefer it to be less sour.

They have interesting bowls of food. I've tried the poke bowl and the umami bowl. Both are good but they do put a huge dent in your pocket.

One thing that I strongly disliked during this visit is that the waiter asked us if we want coconut water or sparkling water. We thought it was a freebie because he only mentioned these two drinks. I said, yeah, why not, but just before he popped a bottle of coconut water we discovered it costs around P200. Sandali lang, kuya! Hindi namin kailangan ang "kabutihan" iyan.

My first time here. I wanted a drink and went for the Thai Milk Tea thing. Apparently, it’s a limited special drink/slushie.

My drink was pretty much tasteless and felt like super sweet ice with pearls. No traces of tea whatsoever.

I guess I should’ve ordered their regular ice creams because they looked amazing.

The place also tells me to get lost 128516

Classic Healthy Plate is a solid choice. I still can’t believe how much you get for only P280. Of course it’s not cheap but you get a drink, fruits, salad and chicken at saka mga sauce. I would rate it lower if it was more expensive since the food isn’t the best. Decent for the price.

Dunkin donuts have eclairs now. I liked them, they were very creamy. Maybe the chocolate could’ve been a tad better but overall a good choice for a cup of coffee. That said, their coffee sucks (nothing can beat Macchiato from 7-eleven, even my beloved Starbucks!).

This review is for New Bombay Royale ay McKinley Hills but walang lugar na ito dito sa Looloo.

Kakaiba talaga ang aking karanasan sa New Bombay Royale. Parehong mabuti at masama ang serbisyo dito. Mabait ang mga tauhan pero maraming mali. Naghanda sila ng pagkain namin pero nakalimutan nila ang order ko. Naghintay ako ng order ko ng mga dalawampung minuto. Dahil sa paghihintay ang kanin ay naging malamig... Ayaw ko kapag ang kanin ko ay malamig. Tapos nakalimutan nila na mayroon kami ng Zomato Gold. Kailangan nilang magrepunch ng bill. Hindi ko alam ano nangyari kasi halos na walang tao noong bumisita kami.

Ngayon, magkaibang istorya ang ulam. Mahilig ako sa Indiang pagkain 128513 Ang mababa na rating ko ay para service lang. Hindi ko gusto ang lahat ng pagkain na kinain ko doon pero conscious na pili ko ito. Mabait na nagbabala sila sa akin na hindi ko nagugustuhan ang ilang pagkain. Ok lang ito.

Chapatti.
Matabang tinapay ito. Mas mabuti kung lalagay mo ang ulam sa loob nito.

Kheer.
Hindi pala ang dessert ito. Ulam ito! Masarap pero "heavy" talaga kung kakain ka nito pagkatapos ng lahat-lahat. Be mindful and don't make my mistake.

Chaas (Jerra Masala).
Gusto ko ng ganitong mga inumin pero this one ay hindi masarap.

Plain Biryani.
Isa sa lahat ng pinakamasarap na kanin na nakain ako! Kay sarap nito! Marerekomenda ko.

Malai shrimp.
Nabasa ko na may nutty na lasa ito pero hindi ko napansin talaga. Tapos isinerve sa akin ang dalawang sauce: mint chutney (masarap!) at tamarind sauce (eww!). Hindi ko irerekomenda ito kasi mas maraming masarap na pagkain doon.

I’m still a big poke fan. I cannot help myself so you gotta stawp meh before I waste lahat ng pera ko. This time it was Surf x Turf with tapa-like beef at kanin. Perfect combo, everything blends together like Downy and a detergent in your washer.

Ordered Black King noodles. Thought a lot. Chose the hardest noodles. At saka the most rich broth. Tasted. Mendokoro? No. Ippudo? Still a no. Not as rich. Good noodles? Yes. The best ones? Hindi pala. Cold tea. Ayaw ko.

I was on a perfect steak in Tagbilaran but unfortunately this place ended it. I’ve had their grilled signature chicken but it was just okay. It all boils down to the sauce they use. I already forgot the taste but I remember it was just average. That said, visually it looks really yummy.

My Mango Pandan dessert was also so-so. This is because the ice cream was tasteless.

P.S. A Bohol hill of rice was not really hot. I don’t like it when my rice is not steaming.
