While the purpose of our Manila trip was really business, we are just so happy to have some time to indulge ourselves to see things and taste different kinds of food. From Asia and around the world, here I present our tour of the world on a plate. haha
On our first evening, we had dinner with my brother Iman, cousin Sam, and a good friend Pepay at the Super Bowl Chinese restaurant at the SM Megamall. We were so hungry already that we were happy their dimsum orders were packaged at buy 1 take 1. Wow! We had several kinds of dimsum as well as yangchow fried rice and birthday pancit.
One lunchtime, we decided to try the Pakistani offerings at the Halal-certified Kabab Roll at the MOA. Nice and spicy!
After our spicy lunch, we had a serving of the Masatami shaved ice. I wonder why the staff were greeting us in a foreign language. As it turned out, the shaved ice is a Hawaiian treat.
Our ninang met with us one afternoon and treated us to crepes for our snacks. I learned that crepes were originally from France so this is a French dessert then. hehe
We miss the time we spent in Indonesia, especially the food. And we were glad to find Martabak Cafe at MOA. We had a spicy dinner there complete with sambal. waaaaa Lovet!
One late dinnertime, we joined my brother at Bon Chon at the Bonifacio High Street. He had dinner while we had dessert. We had these frozen Korean yogurt called the Bon Chon Ko-Yo.
Capping one evening, we had milk tea at the Happy Lemon (a brand from Hong Kong) at Bonifacio High Street. Since we no longer had tables, we were not able to take photos of our drinks. Just my daughter posing by the bar.
Caught up late at the Star City, we had dinner there. We chose the American brand Kenny Rogers Roasters because I miss their corn muffins and I know that my daughter will like their chicken.
That weekend, our friend Pepay treated us to lunch at the Kimono Ken (MOA). It was total sushi overload! Yummy! Hubby and I really love Japanese food.
That evening, my uncle Nene treated us to a lovely international fare at the 9 Spoons Restaurant, Bayleaf, Intramuros. I love the place! And the food was good, too. This was my appetizer, roast pork rolls.
When we went back to Bacolod, I was craving for my favorite sisig. But we ate at Pepe’s because it was already late and I had baby back ribs. Not what I was looking for, but well, it was pork. hehe
So that pretty sums up our world tour on a plate in Manila. LOL
