Afters Espresso & Desserts

After our dinner at RUB Ribs & BBQ, I insisted that we go somewhere else more spacious and more peaceful for a nightcap, and we headed out to this lovely cafe aptly-named Afters. :)

This place is a coffee-and-dessert junkie's heaven. On display were delicious-looking cakes, gelato that they make in-house and a lovely display of coffee beans from different regions around the world. To not order a drip coffee at Afters seemed like committing a mortal sin.

Cafe de Bonifacio, Revisited

I brought my college friends for a reunion lunch at The Podium, and because we only have limited time to do so, I suggested that we eat somewhere familiar: Cafe de Bonifacio

It's been a long time since I last dined at Cafe de Bonifacio so I was really excited to finally eat there again. 

While waiting for our food, we enjoyed the free appetizer, Kropek with Pesto along with our coolers: Ripe Mango Shake, Cucumber and Lemon Cooler and Watermelon Shake (Php 75).

8 Cuts Burger Blends

From my amazing experience at BurgerBar, I decided to bring my friends to its brother resto in UP Town Center: 8 Cuts Burger Blends. The menu of 8 Cuts is similar to BurgerBar except for the 8th meat blend, which is the ox tail. 

From the entrance, you can watch the guys grind, blend meats into burger patties. Glad the guys aren't so camery-shy so I happily took photos of them. :P

New Discovery: D' Salas Leche Flan

A workmate has introduced this popular fastfood chain's secret: D'Salas Leche Flan

Located somewhere in Manila, D' Salas Leche Flan has been known to be the leche flan supplier for Chowking's Halo-Halo. I wasn't aware of this fact until my workmate brought a box of leche flan for us to try. 

The leche flan is carefully sealed in plastic and placed in a box. The syrup wouldn't spill easily if the package is handled well.

RUB Ribs & BBQ

I had a ribs dinner again with my high school friends, but this time, we visited RUB Ribs & BBQ

RUB has always been in my "so-near-yet-so-far" list. The closest branch to my office, the Kapitolyo branch, is raved upon by my work colleagues but I haven't had a chance to visit it. That's why when my friends invited me to the QC branch, I flew as quickly as I could. 

The QC branch gets full quickly, as we had to wait outside the restaurant. It was nice of them to set up chairs while waiting though. 

The second floor is the main dining area, where it could accommodate 20 people. Tables are also available at the ground floor and outside. 

We ordered the Family Brunch (Php 685) which includes 3 sides: Roasted Garlic Mashed Potato, Grilled Buttered Corn and Garlic Spinach & Mushroom.

Treasure Found at Tonkatsuya

Searching for Tonkatsuya seemed like a treasure hunt for my friend and I. Located in a residential area in Makati,  it took us a lot of patience -- and a lot of help from Google maps -- to get to our dinner place. 

Tonkatsuya is a small Japanese katsu restaurant that has been serving katsu for years, even before katsu restaurants like Yabu opened.
