Kenny Rogers Roasters: Crossover between fast food and casual dining

One of the biggest tasks when going to a mall during the weekends is finding a restaurant that would fit the budget, avoid the long queue and dine comfortably. Jollibee and McDonalds is the choice of the many especially those with kids...I really don't know what kind of spell that red bee and funny clown did to those kids, but it definitely got them begging their parents to eat in that restaurant. My kid was a victim of that contagious Jollibee spell and we argued all day finding a place to eat because he insists that we eat there. I would suggest something and he would drag me outside. 


Since the main mall in SM City gets super crowded every weekends, I decided to go to SM Annex where there was still room left for breathing. The Jollibee there was full so I decided to trick my kid into eating at Kenny Rogers because there were only few people eating at this fast food chain. I remembered how attached he was with huge TVs so I used that to bribe him into eating at Kenny Rogers Roasters. 

I really liked the interiors of the restaurant or should I say fast food chain because you would have to line up to order, but they give you a menu so you can choose before you fall in line. It is like a crossover of a fast food and a casual restaurant. The price is a little too high than Jollibee and McDonalds, but for me to be able to order and dine comfortably is what matters most. They don't have service charge unlike other fine dining restaurants or even family restaurants like Pizza Hut or Shakey's which is great because you only pay for what you order and not get surprised getting a huge bill after meals. I ordered a meal that consists of chicken, spaghetti and muffins which I shared with my kid because I was not that hungry.
The spaghetti was good (it reminded me of the spaghetti served at Yum-Yum Tree in Rustan's Makati when I was a kid), the muffin was good and the chicken was also delicious but it was too little! 
My mom ordered 3 side dishes worth around P120 which is fine if you are on a diet or just wanted a light meal. My kid ate the mashed potato and I tasted it which is just alright. I suggest that you order their family meal if you are groups of  4 or 5 to fully satisfy your tummy. 
Just when we were about to leave, my kid discovered a new area in Kenny Rogers Roasters where he wanted to chill. Too bad we have to go...well, there is always a next time. For those who want to check out the menu of Kenny Rogers or would want to order online, here is their link:

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…

Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce

Since Beef are more expensive than Pork, I end up buying Pork Steak rather than Beef Steak for lunch. I am going to share this easy recipe that both kids and adults would love called "Pork Steak with Onion and Gravy Sauce". There are two ways of preparing this dish: 
First: You can bread the pork steak, fry it and then cook the sauce separately before smothering them on the fried pork steak. 
Second: I chose this version because my kid have a hard time chewing meat so I need to make sure that the pork is really tender. Here is my simple recipe: 

Ingredients: 
1/2 kilo of Pork Steak (marinated in calamansi, soy sauce and pepper)
2 large onions (sliced thinly)
Instant Gravy (dissolved in water)
Pork drippings from the boiled pork
1 tablespoon butter

Procedure:

1. Add 1 cup of water on the marinated Pork Steak, then boil it for approximately 30 minutes or until the pork is tender. Make sure to check it from time to time to avoid the meat from getting dried up. Add water if needed.

2. Remo…
