A Walk into Grace Park.

I have only eaten here once before so I am very grateful to Lucy Gomez when she suggested that we have dinner in Grace Park last Friday. 

Everything that we ordered was truly delicious. Service was quick and food was served hot!
Happy tummies and the company was equally great. 

Lucy kept mentioning the avocado pie, which unfortunately, they had run out of. That only gives us another reason to come back. 

Thank you for the laughter! We should do this again soon!!

My Trying Hard Gang.

This dinner was, no exaggeration, five months in the making. We all wanted to get together before Christmas but getting all nine of us available at the same night is just so difficult....but a few weeks ago, we finally did it. 

The restaurant of choice, after many many reservations and cancellations is Bar Pintxos in Fort. We all agreed that the food is consistently good and it's quite near to everybody. 

Turned out, it became Christine's birthday treat for the gang. So, a great big thank you for that Chris!! 

Now, let's start with what we had. 

Love this.

Tortilla Patatas Chorizo, so-so. 

I could eat this all myself. 

A must try. Lamb Paella.

Chopito Frito. They either need a smaller plate or more squid per order. 

Our usual group shot....but wait, after seeing this photo, Christine said that it looked too stiff. That it didn't seem like we were such good friends...she wanted us closer....perhaps a selfie is best....

So in the car, Santi tried.... (disaster).

In Tomatito, where we had dessert, it was Jo's turn to try. (Not everyone was happy about this photo.)

So we passed the phone to Ven..... (seems decent enough).

But we all went back to having a waiter take the shot. 

But no matter how near or far, how often or seldom I see them, I love my friends dearly. 

Thank you for dessert Tiff!!!

I still have to try out Tomatito for dinner but Bar Pintxos, I shall return.

P.S. We call ourselves the TH gang because we try so hard to stay out late and party like rockstars. But sadly, we were all tired come midnight. 

Thumbs Up for Samba!

After a semi-tiring shoot for Jul B. Dizon, Lucille and I invited Pauline and Sara to have dinner. Thankfully, Pauline suggested Samba in Fort Shang. The first time I ate here was the opening so naturally, the food was passed around and the lines were long so I was not sure if the food was any good or not. 

I don't even know what they are called. I lost track because the four of us were going crazy over the selection. I suggest you just show the waiter these photos and I guarantee you a great dining experience.

Cheers to good Peruvian food!

I can't wait to go back.

Cafe Fleur in Angeles.

One Saturday afternoon, my Dad suddenly wanted to go to Angeles City to try Cafe Fleur by Chef Sau because he saw it in Facebook and believes that we are related to him. So at around 5 pm, we headed towards the North to have dinner that's 1 hour and 45 minutes away. 

With the name Cafe Fleur, I imagined it to be a pretty house with lots of beautiful flowers and a lush garden. Also, I thought it was sandwiches, tea and pastries. To my surprise, it a Filipino (Kapampangan) restaurant! This is was going to be testy because my Dad is from San Fernando and he is a great cook. 

Love the way their tamales is presented. I was also told that it tasted good. I don't like tamales at all so I skipped it. 

Ukoy. Not bad. 

The Piko salad with salted egg was yummy!!! 

Sisig was so so...(I prefer it sizzling) but believe it or not, I enjoyed the rice. 

The prettiest Kare-Kare I have ever had. So neatly presented, it also tasted delicious. Though, they may have to find a way to make the skin crispy for a longer period of time. 

Only dessert that's worth the calories. Pandan sans-rival. 

Thank you for the food trip Dad!
