Alfredo's Steak House Does Not Sizzle Anymore

It was a rainy day...I barely spent 15 minutes at home after a long day at work...with a bad headache...I felt like I just wanted to sleep...but family is more important to me...so we went to Alfredo's Steak House in Tomas Morato to meet-up with my sister and her family because it was her birthday. I was glad it was just near our place and traffic was not that bad for a Friday night. The last time I was at Alfredo's Steak House was when I was still small...maybe more than 20 years ago...oops! now I gave out a clue on my age. As far as I can remember, Alfredo's steaks are really delicious, tasty and satisfyin. But that was years ago so it is like remembering how Duncan Hines Chocolate Chip Cookies taste like...Yummy! this was my favorite cookie when I was in grade school...I can still remember the softness and chewiness...Do they still sell this?
I was excited to see if the Alfredo's I knew before was still the same. The place looked the same with the Western-style theme. There are huge carriage wheels on the ceiling...pardon for the bad pictures...
My kid sat on a high chair...he barely fit in it because he was tall but he managed to sit comfortably...
We waited for about 30 mins to an hour for our order...so my kid got impatient and asked me to take him to the restroom. Having a comfortable and well-equipped restroom is essential for running a high-end restaurant so I expected a lot from it. 

There's a hand-drier (the little girl removed the plug after she used it...glad she did not get grounded), bidet, toilet paper and hand soap. I suggest that they use a liquid soap so it won't be messy. It grosses me out using a hand soap used by a stranger. I also hope they have a lower sink for kids because my kid had a hard time washing his hands.


Dinner finally arrived! I did not hear the steak sizzle and see any smoke coming from the hot plate when they served it. My sister asked the waiter to change the plate because her food was cold...maybe it was left at the serving area for a long time and they totally forgot to give it. The other steak they served was piping hot so her hubby was satisfied with that.
We also ordered grilled blue marlin, fish and chips, BBQ shrimp on horseback (dunno why they called it horseback) and steak/chicken meal. My mom told me that her blue marlin was cold and my shrimp was also cold but I still ate it because I was hungry.



The shrimp was reasonably priced. It is worth P350 and consists of 2 sticks of shrimp kebab with side salad and rice. The others I think are quite expensive and to eat them cold is a huge turn off. I don't think I would eat there again unless it is for free of course.

  1. "Alfredo's Steak House Does Not Sizzle Anymore.." Thought so. Few of my friends went there just last week, too. They told me Alfredo's not the same as before. Too bad, though. It's like one of my faves. :( I adore their food, service, and don't get me wrong - I like even their comfort room with bidet. Coz not all restaurants have one, right? :P

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…

Easy Beef Sukiyaki Recipe

I love Japanese food and one of my fave meals is Sukiyaki. My mom spent a lot of time making that dish when we were little so I thought it was difficult to make.
