Beloved celebrated her birthday with me at Four Seasons Buffet & Hotpot located at the Manhattan Parkview in Cubao a couple of weeks ago. We’ve actually been here before, a lot of times already, in fact, and among the buffet places that offer a free-on-your-birthday promo, this is Beloved’s favorite. Ever since it opened a couple of years ago, we’ve celebrated Beloved’s birthday here two years running now.
Beloved and I celebrated our fifth anniversary at Seryna. This Japanese restaurant is one of the few gastronomic places located at Little Tokyo. This one is at the outer periphery, and can be accessed without going to the communal alfresco area. According to fellow foodies, this place has the best sashimi in town. Excited, we opted for a reservation since we heard this place always gets full. Luckily, we were able to get one.
Beloved and I had dinner a few nights ago at Ganso-Shabuway. This place is located at Shangri-La Plaza’s new East Wing, which is just starting to get populated with commercial outlets. We used to have little reason to go here, but since Beloved started working nearby, expect more blogs on food places around the area. Anyway, I have honestly never heard of the place before, but their menu is simple: Japanese hot pot or shabu-shabu, hence the name. Although the prices were a bit steep, I somehow convinced my stingy Beloved to splurge a bit.
A couple of days ago, beloved and I ate at Seoul Garden. This was one of the first restaurants to open during the opening of the brand new Annex of SM North EDSA. From it’s name, it’s safe to assume that it’s Korean. What kind exactly, I wasn’t too sure since every time we pass by, I see there’s only a few people in to pique my interest. However, I notice there were plenty of dividers inside, so I couldn’t be too sure. I grow curiouser each time we pass by, especially after our wonderful experience on YakiMIX and realizing that Seoul Garden was a do-it-yourself-barbecue-and-hotpot-buffet. The day before yesterday was our chance to try it out.
