Olè from Pablo and his mighty sombrero! Introducing my much anticipated night delivery while babysitting -- Pork Sisig Soft Taco. Everything inside the shell were perfectly married. The putok-batok chicharon on top was an awesome touch. The sisig inside was made so good. They had put the right amount of jalapeños, as well (that's a plus point for me).

When in Iloilo, don't forget to try the famous Lapaz Batchoy. Best eaten with puto. Opted to go to Ted's since it was nearer to where we were staying. Netong's is still the best, though (just saying). Hahaha!

Disappointing. I was craving for something sweet with a kick of sourness during one of my vacay nights in the City of Love, but I wasn't able to receive the taste buds' pleasure that I deserve. The place was packed (maybe because it was Valentine's Day that time), however I just had a spoonful of their red velvet with cherries, and headed out after. I could have gone to Coffee Break instead. :(

This is a back review that I won't miss. This was when JP G made me and Zia M, Russel F kaladkad for a drink of wine. T'was a heck of a hectic day, I guess.

JP and I were the first ones to arrive since my office is just a tumbling away. We decided to order Chorizo Piggy for appetizer and Angel's Nest Pasta for our "pseudo"-main (actually JP was the one who ordered everything, first time to eat here and I truly rely on this man's taste. Naks!). Everything was oh so good! I can't actually get enough of the chorizo and the free bread sider. Haha.

Then came Zia and she ordered another batch of appetizer, the Four Cheese Croquettes. She was craving for cheese -- nonstop telling about it even in our whatsapp convo. It was nice and soft and a little gooey. Russ came late so he just shared a glass of wine with the two.

I want to come back for their paella soon. Definitely. 128525

Scout's Honor

I've been excited to eat here and more excited to give a review! It was an awesome experience for me and Russel F! Tonight wasn't the usual night when you get mains for dinner during the middle and have cookies and milk as appetizers. I had my eyes already stuck to Scout's Honor before even seeing it physically.

So I got Matcha Black Sesame Cookie, Samoas, Cereal Bar and Horlicks Milk. OMG! I must have gone to a desserts heaven and up to seventh heaven of desserts heavens. Haha. I personally loved the milk. I could have drank a liter or two if only they have the milk bottled in that quantity. The cookies were definitely good and genuinely crafted. Four thumbs up (that includes my two thumb feet fingers) for this cookie and milk shop. I'll probably go back for the other variety of cookies and the ice cream. 128525

It was nice bumping into you, Peanut D! 128522

Happiest birthday to one of the coolest gal on Earth, Jennifer N!

It was so hard pulling off a surprise on such a limited time but thanks to #teamclingy, we made it happen! Birthdays should always be about making that person special and extra happy on his/her day. I want to touch a person's life in a day with even the smallest thing I could offer. Just like good food, being part of the celebration is the most rewarding thing at the end of the day. So speaking of good food, we had a bunch last night.

Bacon Onion Marmalade Bruschetta (photo attached) is my favorite. Thank you, birthday girl for ordering and letting us try this. It might not have the right amount of saltiness to manage the sweetness of the marmalade but it was all divine for me. I devoured it like heaven 128514. I chose to order Adobo Overload for my main and it was salty enough to neutralize the bruschetta I ate before it. I had to take another bite size after eating a portion of the adobo dish. I got to try other dishes that the group ordered. The noodle of the Aligue Pasta was too pasty for me. The Baby Back Ribs reminded me of something that tastes Middle-eastern rather than a Western-natured food. Maybe because of the marinade they've incorporated in the meat. Roast Beef Pares was a neutral dish for me. I haven't tried it with suka and sili though. It must have been good with the condiments. 128513

Who doesn't love grilled cheese? It's delicious and easy to make. The perfect comfort in a food. But what I love most about it? The gooey cheese! 128525

I will and forever come back because of Piggy. The juicy patty (as ever) is delectable, and yes the bacon! How will I ever forget the bacon -- it was crisp. We also tried the onion rings (I'm not a fan of onions so I really took a leap of faith). Surprisingly, it was good. It didn't even taste like I'm eating onions wrapped in crumb mixture. Less one star for the service though. 128553

Happy Anniversary, Sev's!

Last night was Slam Poetry Night -- Slam Poetry ala Pilipinas. What I like about this place is the ice cream. Haha. They have Carabao's Milk Ice Cream, yema pastel flavour. Oooh, heaven! Other food variants are so-so but super affordable! 128522

A sweet horaah to beautiful friendship! Finally, I got to see my best friend Jam again after 3 months. We've been missing each other so I decided to get my sexy butt to go to Manila area. We decided to meet in Robinsons Place Manila and didn't have any plans of where to eat. She said she wants a salad because she's on a diet and I was telling her not to be so mapagpanggap 'cos she's not even fat (who the hell cares about being fat when you get to eat good food?! lol) Anyways, and so we decided, Almon Marina it is.

I ordered their herbed chicken with rice and two slides. I did not like the chicken. It used to be delish and tender but the way I have tasted it, 'twas matigas! 128557 I was a bit disappointed of my order. Jam got melted tuna, as seen in the photo attached (medyo na-pressure yata sa akin). I tried a bit of it and I thought the tuna was only straight from the can. 128557 There again, I was disappointed. I should have ordered my usual fix, Pork Rib. 9786
