I happened to have a small conversation with my cousin about restaurants and he mentioned about Open Table Resto. He said that it has a wide variety of cuisines, Filipino, Japanese, Mexican and Korean which are all good and affordable. Hearing this, my sister, mom and I tried visiting the place.

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Food: Wishing Well

We happened to drop by for a few drinks. A lot of people seem to hang out here. Ambiance is dark so I needed camera flash to take picture of Cheese Stick (Mozarella), which caught my curiosity on their menu.

If I happen to come back here, I will take more pictures, gather more information and try other food.

Friday, October 4, 2013

Food: Gustav

I hear that Gustav is known with their pizzas and I tried to check the place. The ambiance is nice with the mini Eiffel Tower trademark. I also observed that most of the customers order pizzas.

The presentation of food is defying. For example, the Gustav's mini pizza my mom and I ordered looked simple but underneath the cheese had sausages. What I see about Gustav is that they made their own version of high class food like panizzas and made the prices affordable or cheaper.

I suggest that you ask or order for alfalfa with additional price when you order their pizza nizzas.

Food: Dip Pan In All Tea

Updated: 04-21-2015

A friend invited me to check out her new business. Curious on the name, I asked if she serves Milk Tea, etc. She answered back laughing that she can serve tea for relief after drinking. She has a different name in mind and later change it to comply with DTI.

What I liked on the place is its variety. If you happen to drink or to be drunk, you can order Bulalo or their breakfast meals for relief. They have burger and fries for snacks in the afternoon. Also they have a videoke if you feel like letting yourself out while drunk.

Food: Bretto's

Updated: 02-05-2014

I do not remember when was the last time I ate sub sandwiches so I managed to check here. What's interesting is that you can create your own giant sub sandwich. We ordered 12" giant sub sandwich and selected Roast Lamb for the meat and wheat for the bread. Seeing how they make the sandwich, I decided to order additional meat, Pastrami (also curious what this taste like), to add flavor with a total of P385.00. With my appetite, I say I might be able to finish only 2/4 to 3/4 of it. I purposely included a softdrink in can for comparison how big is the sandwich.

    I first knew about the Coffee Academy near the Holy Rosary Parish Church. At that time, they told me that this was only 1 of their branches and they have been open for a long time. I think their main branch is in San Fernando. I believe they made a good decision that they moved to Balibago where the locals have make their gimmicks.
