Breakfast at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

I was excited to get a breakfast treat from my friend at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. She was bragging to me at how delicious their breakfast was so I was eager to try it even waking up early on my day off. I was still not sure if I will bring my kid with me because he was still sleeping. But I felt guilty because I made a promise the night before that if he behave and sleep early, I will bring him along. My friend still need to finish some work so our breakfast date got delayed for a bit and my kid woke up so I decided to give him a quick bath and bring him along. I was expecting a cool morning weather but it was so hot already for around 9 am. We got to U.P. Ayala Techno Hub and there was not much people there and most restaurants and stores are still closed. 

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has a nice cozy design and we chose an area with 2 couches and a mini couch suited for my kid. I ordered the bagel with chicken sausages and scrambled eggs while my friend chose bread with salm…

Yehey for Yedang Korean Restaurant

My sis invited us for dinner to celebrate the birthday of her hubby and when she mentioned Yedang...I got excited because I have read a lot of good reviews about this restaurant and was even planning to eat there for my birthday if I had a bigger budget..but unfortunately I ended up buying vouchers for a Japanese resto to save up. Since I passed by that place before, we decided to go there ahead of my sis because my kid was sleeping. The guard was really nice to help us get out of the cab to the restaurant even assisting us with an umbrella. There was a small bench near the entrance for guests waiting to be assisted for their seats. I requested for a table for us so we can sit comfortably while waiting. The venue was nice even adding a Christmas tree to give that holiday feeling.

The table has a nice set-up offering chopsticks and spoon (not ordinary looking spoon so there is still that Korean feel to it). They served us water with a hint of pandan which made it taste more refreshing..…

Bistro Miyake Birthday Treat

Finding a place to have that perfect birthday dinner is a huge task for almost everyone because there are a lot of factors to consider: the price...the venue...the food...the serving...and the reputation! I love Japanese food and my former colleague who already ate at this place told me that their serving is big and it is delicious so I took her word for it. The price is expensive but having 4 vouchers (P250 each) for P500 worth of food was worth it! It has a convenient venue and easy to find since Annapolis street is not that long. Bistro Miyake is located at unit 101 Intrawest Bldg, 33 Annapolis St. Greenhills. (Plus the huge sign on top makes it easy to see)
When we got there around 6:30 pm, the sign says it was closed which made me panic a little but I was glad the waiter told me that it was already open. The girl approached me and I told her that I have been calling their number to make a reservation since yesterday but it cannot be reached and she told me that they had a problem …

Unsatisfied with My Second Barrio Fiesta Voucher

It was my birthday and I was stressed out in treating my family and close friends to dinner because I have a tight budget. I was tempted to buy the Barrio Fiesta Voucher offering crispy pata and shanghai rice plus 1.5 litro of coke for only P495. 
I thought it was a good deal and my past experience buying a voucher at Barrio Fiesta was satisfying so I clicked paying online for an instant voucher. 
When we got there, place was packed but was lucky to get a table for 5. I gave them the voucher and decided to make additional orders because my friend decided to treat me by adding sinigang na hipon and my mom is cutting down on pork so I ordered sizzling sisig na bangus. 
The Crispy Pata was good and crunchy but I think for a regular price of almost P500, it is too expensive. There is a small store near our place that sells Crispy Pata with the same size for only P290. As usual, consumers always buys the name and not the food. 

The Sinigang na Hipon is not a good deal! There were only like 7 s…
