The Wifey and I visited my sister based up north and we had these for our post-Christmas Day dinner: Pancit Palabok from Joey’s and Deep Fried Pork Hock (Crispy Pata) from Hapag Vicentico’s. Needless to say, “Yum yum!”
So, what do we have here? Roast Pork Belly, Char Siu Pork, Soy Chicken, Soy Egg, Fried Pork Shumai, and Buchi (Sesame Ball). There’s some rice underneath all that. All for PHP₱328. (SGD$8.66). Pricey, right?
My Hario V60 brewed Mt. Matutum Arabica coffee at Bo’s Coffee Primo. Awesome flavor! (I really should stop procrastinating and get my own V60 gadget one of these days.)
What TW and I had for lunch: The Original BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad, Fried Mozzarella, and Chicken Piccata at the California Pizza Kitchen at the Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
This deep fried pork hock is from Pata ni Murphy at 11th Avenue, Socorro, Quezon City. It’s as crispy as it looks!
The scoop of butter appears to be escaping from the plate. Ha, you’re going nowhere but in my belly, my friend!
We were looking for coffee last Sunday but all the Starbucks in the area were packed and about to close. We wound up at this place called High Grounds Café. First impression? It’s huge! Lots of tables! (They seem to have an upper floor but it’s cordoned off.) The café is obviously meant for people who’d bring their laptops along to work or study. But it was loud from the late hours to the wee hours while we’re there. I wouldn’t be able to work or study what with all those distractions. LOL!
I really liked the place! They have a wide selection of food and drinks. Of course, coffee options are the main attractions, well, at least to me. Would love to be back here soon one of these days.
