Yesterday, for lunch, beloved and I ate at Aveneto. This is one of the more overdue nomnom adventures we’ve had, since we’ve been here more times than I can accurately remember. And if you’re a mall-goer or live in the vicinity of Visayas Ave., you’ve probably at least heard of this resto, if not have eaten in it. If not, well, you can probably assume from its name that it’s Italian, and it is. Being an Italian restaurant, they specialize in pizzas and pastas, but also have some nonstandard Italian fare ranging from their appetizers and their hero sandwiches (then again, maybe the latter is also Italian). This restaurant has a lot of branches, and I’ve been to most of them. The particular one we ate at yesterday was their Trinoma branch. When we go here, it’s usually full because it’s dinner time. Their lunch hours are the opposite of that, and we were practically the only table when we came in.
Beloved and I ate at Friuli Trattoria for dinner. Yes, I know I said it’ll be a while before our next nomnom adventure. But because Starcraft II’s Southeast Asia server lags like hell, it didn’t really take plenty of my time. Anyway, Friuli is an Italian joint found in Maginhawa St., one of the closest pizza places from home. It’s also our family’s restaurant, so I might be a bit biased. I hope you trust that I won’t be despite saying that this is my favorite Italian place, as I’ll try to back that claim up. I’ve basically tasted everything on the menu, but recently, they’ve renovated and added a lot of brewed coffee-based drinks on the menu. It’s also been a while since we went here, so we did.
Yesterday, beloved and I ate at Bigoli while doing my errands. It certainly wasn’t the first time we went here. In fact, this is one of the most frequent places we eat at in Trinoma. Not that I fancy Italian food that much, which is what Bigoli specializes in. And even for an Italian place, it’s not among my favorites. However, for the fact that they offer unlimited bread sticks and bottomless drinks for a very affordable price just makes it somewhat impossible to just shun this one away. Beloved also likes this place due to the fact that they serve cream dory.
Beloved and I went to a trip to Zambales which turned into a trip to Subic after a day because of the randomness of the impulses of my father side. There, we got to try out a couple of restaurants that we decided to do a review on. When we got to Subic, we stopped by a cafe called Xtremely Xpresso Cafe for brunch.
Today, me and my mother and brother went to Eastwood mall. Having pretty much no choice since all other places had long waiting lists or aren’t really appetizing, we chose to go to Uncle Cheffy. It’s supposed to be a brick-oven restaurant featuring panizzas and barbecued stuff. I have never heard of this restaurant before, and never heard of any recommendations from other people mentioning this. It’s also my first time having panizza, so it’s pretty much a blind-tongued experience.
