Ersao Looks Cute But There's Nothing Cute About Its Food

Since me and my friend have eaten at almost all the restaurants in Wilcon City Center (Visayas Avenue), we decided to try something new. Ersao restaurant located on the ground floor has a really cute design and I saw its wide selection of milk teas and shakes so we decided to give it a try. 

They have condiments area placed near the counter, but I was not able to try any of them because my kid does not like spices. I was also lazy to go to the counter...so I just settled with the chili sauce and soy sauce.
I ordered Beef Topping which was worth P130. I asked the order taker if their beef was really tender because my kid can't chew that well and she said yes...but I was disappointed because it was not that tender and the taste was also bland...I could make better beef stews than this. 
My friend and I shared the Adobong Tofu (P45), Steamed Dumplings (P50) and Pork Chao Fan (P110). 
If they think that adding chopped spring onions on the fried tofu would make it look special, then they are wrong..because it tasted just like any fried tofu..it is not even that crunchy. The sauce is a bit spicy and sweet. I would have been happier eating Tokwa't Baboy than this. 
The Steamed Dumplings have a soft filling so I let my kid eat this rather than the beef topping. The sauce was thick and a bit sweet which I did not like so I dipped the dumplings in chili sauce and soy sauce with calamansi. I actually ate only a little of this cos I was forced to finish the beef topping.
The Pork Chao Fan has a huge serving so I think among the three orders, this is surely worth it. It tasted good, but I prefer the rice to be stickier.


Ersao is famous for its milk teas and shakes so it is a MUST to order one. My kid loves Mango Shake (P60) so we ordered that. It was good and even has huge pearls inside. I think you need to pay additional for the pearls..can't remember though cos I did not check my bill. 
If you would ask me if I would dine here again, then I would have to be honest and say "No!". Sorry, but there are some meals that are overpriced and did not taste good at all. I can maybe get a short drink here while waiting, but won't risk dining at Ersao again. Actually my friend had a tummy ache (her sister said it was food poisoning) the next day and she told me that this was her last meal...but she did not complain anymore. The only thing cute about Ersao is its interiors and that won't fool me anymore :)
Here is Ersao's Menu for those who want to still try this place out.

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…
