My Betrothed and I had dinner at Unlimited Grill & Sushi by Korean J a few days before Christmas; and, yes, this is their actual store name. This was an unplanned trip and the primary reason was that I was craving for kimchi. We met at a 7-11 opposite this place and found that they had a table open for us despite the small queue, as what most Korean all-you-can-eat places have especially on a weekend. We decided to take the opportunity upon learning the price.
Beloved and I had dinner at Livestock a couple of days ago. I’ve been craving for something unhealthy, something to make me younger recently, and Livestock’s famous crispy pata seemed to be a good candidate to fill that craving. We’ve been to this place before, but we didn’t have any good pictures due to bad lighting. Since our technology has improved, we were hopeful to try again. As the place was easily accessible from home, it wasn’t a problem to revisit.
We had another art tambay last Sunday. But before I get to that post, a few weeks ago we had another food trip with our friend. This time we tried Genki Sushi at UP Town Center.
Beloved and I had dinner at Hanayo. It’s actually the second time we’ve been here, but we didn’t manage to take photos the first time, which happened early last year. Found just a skip away from Tomas Morato, this Korean grill is similar to the likes of Don-Day, one of the food places I exclaim highly due to the budget buffet they offer. This isn’t as inexpensive as Don-Day, however. When we first went, the buffet, which includes on-your-table grilling, only costed a bit more than 500 Php.
Beloved and I ate at Amici a couple of times over the past couple of months. The first time was dinner on a whim, looking for what’s open. Amici happened to sound satisfying as I was craving pizza that day, and so we went.
Beloved and I had dinner at Domo a few weeks ago. We’ve been here before and we actually had quite a pleasant experience. The reason we’re revisiting was because a week before, we learned that they offered a promotion. We already knew they offer unlimited tuna sashimi, but now, they’re offering at a cheaper price. Since we it was now reachable for us compared to before, we decided not to let the chance pass us by.
Beloved and I had a second dinner at Hanuri a few weeks ago. Yes, you read that right, and if you’re curious as to why, find out in a later blog. Anyway, our stomachs weren’t satisfied although we already had pleased palates, so we weren’t very picky. It was already a bit late at night, so our choices were limited even though we were at the foodie haven of the Tomas Morato area. We noticed the sudden influx of Korean restaurants at the McDonald’s side, and one of them happen to be open for 24 hours. Since we know that most modern Korean restos are generally generous with their servings. Since we needed nourishment more than something to tickle our palates; not that Korean food is bad, I just find it monotonous in flavor—either spicy or sweet.
Beloved and I had dinner at Wangfu Chinese Bistro weeks ago. This Chinese restaurant replaced (thankfully) Teriyaki Boy at the second floor of the building across McDonald’s Tomas Morato. This is actually the second branch in the same street, the first being in Il Terazzo. Beloved had a chance to visit that place, and wasn’t that pleased with the serving size considering the price. So I had a pretty good image that this place isn’t your budget friendly Chinese place.
Beloved and I had dinner a couple of times at Steveston Pizza. This place, relatively new, located at Tomas Morato, popped up in our Facebook news feeds with pictures from friends that was gastronomically pleasing. Aside from knowing that it’s a pizza place, and that they serve scrumptious-looking pizzas, we knew nothing more than that. We had quite the surprise learning that they only serve one size—foot-diameter pizzas at not-so-scrumptious looking prices. A couple of them was even priced at 1.3K Php—yes, at the same size!
Beloved and I had dinner at Nomama a few weeks ago. We’ve been here before, and although we went here because they boast their “artisanal ramen”, we were more pleased with their artisinal non-ramen dishes. You can read more about that here. Anyway, why did we go back here? I don’t really know, but for some reason we ended up here.
