B & P, Revisited

I went back to B&P with a good friend few months after I first visited this lovely all-day breakfast place in Shaw Boulevard. 

While waiting for our orders, we had their signature drinks: Lemon Celery Pandan (Php 110) for me, and Strawberry Lemon Quench (Php 110) for my friend. I love their Lemon Celery Pandan, but my friend found her drink a bit too sweet.

What's New with Yabu

Yabu has always been one of my favorite destinations for comfort food. Throughout the years, Yabu has maintained the quality of their katsu and their heart-warming service. I have always admired them for that. 

I recently visited Yabu with a friend to try their newest dishes. 

As always, we had appetizers: the newest appetizer, Chicken Salad and my new favorite, Iidako Salad.

Photo Album 12: Sweetness

Everybody needs sweetness. 

Much as I love eating desserts or anything sweet, I love taking photos of them as well. Though it's been years since I started blogging, it was only recently that I got formal training in photography. And my favorite subject? Desserts!

I'm still a work-in-progress and I still have to take more lessons, but here are some of the photos I took that really liked. 

My high school friend Fe-An and I met last month for after not seeing each other for quite a long time. She got me these Kit Kats from her recent trip to Japan. I still have to figure out the flavors, but I liked the Blueberry Cheesecake flavor so far. 

Nestle Ice Cream sent me tubs of their new ice cream flavor, Dutch Speculoos. I thought that my friends and I would have a hard time finishing two tubs of ice cream, but I was wrong. It wasn't even enough! This is a lovely summer treat. Go grab one now. :)

Though not the fluffiest pancakes I've tried, Kanto Freestyle Breakfast's Pancakes with Chocnut and Goya Ganache totally made up for the popular Fried Oreos, which was unavailable during our visit. It's wonderful how they create beautiful dishes at very affordable prices. 

Have a happy long, long weekend everyone!

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
