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.
If you see the picture below, you might get spoiled, and I assume you’re already spoiled because you’re most likely to look at the picture if you didn’t after I mentioned that. So, no, I didn’t go back to Twistix, but I did find another place that serves these deep-fried potato spirals on a stick. Anyway, while going home yesterday, I passed by Magiting Street at UP Teacher’s Village on the way to Maginhawa. At a somewhat hidden corner beside I Love Froyo, I saw it—a poster of the said genius of a snack. ‘wich kraft, which specializes in sliders and schubligs, apparently also serves this deep-fried potato spiral thingies.
So, to continue my affordable-foodstuffs-that-deserve-fame-or-notoriety promise, I present another sub-100 Php review. Although affordable, I’m not really certain it’s worth it, but I’ll get to that later. Anyway, I heard from a friend who lives in Cebu that a certain snack item exists here in Manila that he’d want to try out when he visits here. Ironically, I have never heard of said snack item, but when I saw its picture, I immediately asked all my friends if they know where to get it. A friend said that they are sold at Robinsons Galleria, but then Beloved finds out that UST also has these things. Because I had little reason to go to Galleria, I decided to try out the said snack item with Beloved at UST.
While waiting for beloved at SM North EDSA a couple of days ago, I happen to pass by this small store at the Sky Garden which piqued my curiosity. When beloved arrived, we went back here because I was pretty hungry as I haven’t eaten yet that day. Great British Take-Out boasts that all their items are below 100 Php. Since it has “take out” in its name, has Austin Powers references in their poster, and we were catching up with our friends to go to a movie, I thought this was a perfect place to try out.
A couple of days ago, beloved and I went to Serenitea. Beloved has been wanting to go here ever since she heard of it since she learned from a friend that they serve milk tea and she being an aficionado of the said drink. The store was located at one of the junction roads from the McDonald’s side of Banawe Street. Anyway, the opportunity to pass by here came a couple of days ago. It was a hidden store amongst car maintenance services, but the green sign somewhat makes it stand out from the crowd.
Before passing by Komoro Soba, we saw this somewhat new stall at the corner of where Komoro Soba is located. It’s called Roti Mum. Beloved and I love Kopiroti’s kopi buns (coffee-flavored buns) so we decided to grab some as well.
Yesterday, beloved and I went to Peanut Butter Company. From the name, you can assume that it specializes in peanut butter. Basically all their menu, save a couple, has peanut butter in it. This includes their sandwiches, pastas, and burgers. Sounds gross? I made an appalled face when I first saw it. Beloved tried it once before and loved it. Since she wanted me to try out their burger, I gave in.
