Savor Filipino Cuisine, Revisited

See my previous post: Savor Filipino Cuisine

My workmates and I make it a point to treat ourselves with a hefty lunch every payday. Our cravings for Filipino food brought me back to Savor Filipino Cuisine, which is a stone's throw away from my workplace. 

We wanted some hot broth, so we ordered Pancit Molo (Php 179).

There wasn't much meat and wanton on it, but the broth was flavorful. The serving is enough for three people.

Oh, Salad Mamas!

As I get older, I became more conscious of my health. Moreover, having gained a lot of weight the past year has made me realize that I should maintain a certain balance by eating healthy food whenever I get a chance. I have lessened my sugar intake (I use Stevia most of the time), and try to eat more fruits and veggies. 

I used to wake up a little early to prepare my salad lunch, but since I don't have a lot of time to do it everyday, I was glad that there's a new salad delivery service that caters in my work area called Salad Mamas. :)

I ordered for a week's worth of salad lunches and tried all of their five salads. And here they are:'

Taco Salad

The Taco Salad has iceberg lettuce with tomatoes, onions, seasoned ground beef with crushed tortilla chips and taco dressing. I loved their version of taco salad. The taco dressing was amazingly delicious!

Slammin' Mini Burgers + Fries + Dips

I dropped by Promenade Greenhills last week to try this cute burger joint named Slammin' Mini Burgers, the revamped version of Slammer Burgers. 

The place is quite simple, with a few tables and a counter table. 

For the Mini Burgers, we tried their limited-edition mini burgers: Black Box Creations (Php 185 for double, Php 265 for triple). The server suggested that I order Triple so I can try all flavors: John Candy, Romeo and Juliet & The Big Kahuna.

Jjimjilbang Experience at Lasema Spa

I was introduced by a good friend to a Korean spa located in Makati named Lasema Jjimjilbang Spa. I was able to visit the place twice, both visits were very relaxing.

So what is Jjimjilbang? Jjimjilbang is a Korean style sauna and spa. Moreover, Lasema is a multi-leisure health facility with sauna, jjimjilbang and massage.

Before you enter the facilities, you will be given a locker key, which is also a tracker for the food and other purchases you will make inside the facilities. We were also given a shirt, shorts and a pair of towels. A robe will also be given if you are going to avail their massage services.

The locker rooms are gender-segregated. The locker room is also connected to the shower area and sauna room.

I wasn't able to take a photo of the sauna room (because the guests should be naked). They have Ginseng and Green Tea hot pools and cold pool to balance your body temperature.

Back in Maginhawa: Friuli Trattoria

After years of not visiting the foodie haven Maginhawa, my blogger friends and I found ourselves walking around this popular street looking for some place to hang out. We ended up at Friuli Trattoria because it was still open at around 11pm. 

The place doesn't really look like the Italian restaurants that I visit. The walls are simply adorned with pictures of the dishes they serve, with chairs and tables that affordable restaurants use.

Ippudo Opens in Manila on September 10!

I was one of the lucky foodies who were invited to the pre-opening dinner of Ippudo Philippines last night.  

Ippudo was founded in 1985 by internationally-renowed ramen king Shigemi Kawahara in Hakata, Japan. With branches in New York, Hongkong, Singapore, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur and many more, Ippudo will finally open its first store in Manila tomorrow, September 10. 

Entering Ippudo felt like being transported to Japan, as the interiors aren't seen from the outside. You can actually peek the kitchen and watch the chefs create your ramen.

Frankie's New York Buffalo Wings, Revisited

Almost a year after we last visited Frankie's New York Buffalo Wings, my workmates and I found ourselves back to satisfy our chicken cravings. 

It was incredulous how this wings joint has kept the crowd going. We almost didn't have any table, as the place is full of yuppies, and even college kids. 

Appetizer junkies that we are, we couldn't resist on having Fries (Php 80) and Nachos (Php 100), both good for sharing and quite generous for its prices.
