Beloved and I had dinner at The Sweet Spot a couple of weeks ago. This place is one of the first to lease a newly-opened building near the corner where the police station of UP Teacher’s village was. I’ve passed by this place a couple of times before, and noticed that they didn’t really offer only sweet stuff, as anyone sane would assume from the name of the place. In fact, I thought one of their items was interesting. Anyway, because we were feeling adventurous, Beloved and I went.
After trying out Manang’s Chicken, Beloved and I found ourselves at the coffee shop right next to it called Afters. Beloved claims she’s been wanting to go to this place but never had the chance to. I, on the other hand, have never heard of this place until last Saturday. Since I wasn’t really filled and didn’t want to fill the rest of my belly space with sweet potato chips, and since Beloved wanted her vice drinks, we decided to pass by.
After our dinner at Brickfire, Beloved somehow convinced me to try out Starr’s Famous Shakes just a floor below on the same building just at the side. Obviously, they serve shakes. Although they tagged themselves “famous”, this was actually the first time I’ve heard of them. Anyway, since I was in a good mood (and still hungry), we passed by.
Today, me and my blockmates Hannah and Ivy decided to hang out for a bit after our review class. We were supposed to go Cha Dao at Matalino street to get our milktea fix but after seeing that the said tea place is full, we decided to hang out at Fancy Crepes instead which is just a few blocks away. From its name, we thought the interiors were “fancy” but actually it has a sort of eclectic x country style x garden-inspired feel to it. We love it! So for this entry I decided to include pictures of the interiors as requested by my lovely and pretty friends.
Beloved and I had breakfast at Saint’s Alp Teahouse a couple of nights ago. Yes, you read that right—we woke up near dinnertime and had our first meal at Beloved’s new favorite street. Found at the same building of BonChon Chicken and Moshi Moshi, this food place is the only one we’ve yet to try in Regis Center.
I love to drink (but not the alcoholic kind!). I love going to milk tea places, coffee shops and cafes so its no wonder that when I discovered a new cafe at Banawe: Caffe Dolce, I asked my friends to meet up there after work. One thing unique about this one is that this is a vegetarian cafe.
A couple of days ago, Beloved and I finally ate at Mary Grace. I say “finally” because this quaint little cafe is located in a mall we frequent at a place we always pass by when we get in or go home. The reasons why we never got to eat here until that day were, one: we only get to pass here when we go to the place where we meet or when we’re done with our business in this mall and go home, and two: when we do pass by here when hungry, the place is always full. Actually, the latter was also true when we went in. Luckily, a table just got cleared, so we took the opportunity to find out just why this place is always packed.
After dinner at La Mesa Grill, me and Inggo looked for a place to hang out at Sky Garden since we didn’t want to go home yet. We ended up at Kitchen of Cakes and Coffee which is just a few steps away from La Mesa Grill. It’s a small coffee shop that specializes in cakes and coffee, obviously. What made me choose this store from all the shops in Sky Garden is that they serve Alamid Coffee, which is the Tagalog version of Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee. I didn’t order that one because it costs (185php) a cup and didn’t have the budget.
Today, I bought my copy of Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty in Trinoma. But that’s not what this post is about. After going there, we had coffee at Seattle’s Best Coffee. Because I spent almost all my money on the said game, we decided to just have one last nomnom adventure for the month for the heck of it. So, I guess because of Starcraft II, this will probably be the last post for the month, and maybe the last post for quite a while.
Last night, beloved and I ate at Bubble Tea. If you’ve read my last review on this resto, you’ll know that we’re pretty much regulars. However, the Bubble Tea we visited was the newly-opened one at Tomas Morato. It’s been a while since our last visit to this chain, so why not?
