Weekdates: Benny's

One of our favorite week dates restaurant :) Benny's at Rustan's Makati same floor ng supermarket :) I also about blog them before here. We always go here for yummy classic pinoy food and when we do our groceries, we usually have dinner here. Servings - good for 2 -3 pax.




Sinigang with Bangus Belly :)



Pork Dinuguan



And my favorite lemon iced tea.




Peso Power:
5/5


Mrs. Panda 's Foodie Reviews
- super yummy food as usual
- service is superb as always
- affordable :)




Weekdates: Fely J's Restaurant

There are some days hubby wants to work outside our home :)  kasi minsan he is tempted to work to bed which makes him go to sleep lang :) and marami di ibang distractions like tv. Sometimes, he will work at a coffee shop after lunch until dinner. I will do my mall-errands and my me time (massage, salon trips) and then we will have dinner. And we decided to try again Fely J's (i blogged them before here).




I think this is "Lengua Rendang" P 385.00  and syempre my all time favorite "Lechon Kawali" P 389.00



Claude's Dream P120.00 and I think this is "Canonigno with Mango Balls" P105.00



Peso Power:
4.25/5


Mrs. Panda's Foodie Views
- the lengua is too spicy for us, we even gave special instruction na mild lang pero even hubby na mahilig sa spicy hindi kinaya.
- lechon kawali is cooked very well - crisp and juicy.
- desserts are ok lang
- servers are better this time :)

Brunch at Maple Restaurant

Hubby and I have a favorite brunch place near our first home :) we usually have our weekend brunch here at 2nd Floor Sanctuario de San Antonio Plaza Complex and and do our Sunday grocery at  Rustans Fresh and Santi's :)   We're so happy that they have new branch at Alabang.



Friends, Welcome to Maple!

Warm Lights and Real Wood Furnitures :)



Every Maple Visit means Prime Rib Tapa and  Cronuts for me!


Prime Rib Tapa
A traditional Filipino breakfast favorite taken to new heights. A marinated prime rib served with garlic rice, two eggs prepared the way you like, tomato-onion salsa and atchara - 520.00



Spaetzle Jambalaya
 Fresh spaetzle pasta with their own special Jambalaya sauce, topped with shrimps and Chilean mussels 390.00
                                              


The Big Maple Breakfast
Three buttermilk pancakes or a giant Belgian waffle served with maple bacon, breakfast sausages, country fries and two farm fresh eggs made just the way you like 540.00




The Famous Cronuts!


For breakfast food lovers but wake up late hihi :) this is a perfect place for you! an all-day breakfast restaurant that is so sunny yet so classy. PS.. their prime rib tapa is good for two for light eaters just order an extra rice. :)
