I found a gingerbread house in Tagaytay
Memory Lane, Magallanes Drive, Tagaytay.
wonderful ambience + good food + 50s and 60s music
I ate at Persia Grill during dinnertime today, so I decided to take pictures.
Obviously, I have a fascination with lamps. I simply love the romantic feel they give off! Teehee. :)
Much as I hate smoking, I can’t deny that I actually find shishas pretty.
I ordered a salad and a chelo kebab kubideh. The waiter was surprised I ordered two dishes, and didn’t believe I could finish all of it. Well, I did because they were delicious! :)
Tapestries, antiques and magical things
I’ve always wanted to go to Cafe Juanita in Pasig City. I finally got the chance to dine there last Sunday.
I ordered their rhum cake, which was good, but I liked their sticky toffee pudding (which my mom ordered) better. It was just so good; it totally upstaged the rhum cake.
Yes, folks, that is the star of the show.
I wonder if their main dishes are equally good. I have yet to taste them. Any suggestions on what I should order?
That Upside Down House
Did you ever wonder what that upside down house/resto along St. Ignatius Village (near White Plains) is called?
well, it’s Pan de Amerikana. Inside it looks like this:
I went there around lunch time, but I personally think that the ambience is even better at night. I got a glimpse of how it looks like (at night) when it suddenly got cloudy.
These lamps sure add a mysterious/magical feel to the place.
Pan de Amerikana’s menu isn’t bad, either. Most of the dishes cost below P100. If you’re on a tight budget and you’re craving for lutong bahaydishes, then this is the place to go to. What I really really really love (and strongly recommend), though, is their wheat pandesal. They’re big, soft and yummy! You can choose to put corned beef in them, or cheese, or anything you want to!
I heard they also have a branch in Marikina. The one over there is chess-themed. Hmmm… sounds interesting. I’ll check it out sometime and will let you know how it goes. :)
154 Maginhawa Street’s Baby
This four-month old restaurant in Sikatuna Village is a blessing! Now that Ted P’s is here, say hello to laid back ambience and whole wheat pizzas. ;)
What I ordered: One whole 14-inch wheat pizza (half-Greca, half-Kung Pao Chicken) and a glass of brewed iced tea (not in the photo).
What I think: The flavor/s of the pizza stood out just right, unlike some of the pizzas I have tasted wherein I could hardly eat another slice after my second one. Its flavor did not insist itself on my taste buds. Rather, it had a balanced mix—- nothing too tomatoe-y or too meaty. The Greca and the Kung Pao Chicken pizza were yummy without (or at least with less) guilt. I was able to eat five slices in total.
The brewed iced tea Ted P’s had to offer had a twist to its taste. It had a hint of citrus and a little bit of something that I can’t quite point out. It was superbly refreshing as well.
The pizza was roughly about P380-400, while the tea was around P35. I think the prices were reasonable enough. My taste buds and my stomach were happy.
What I’d like to try in their menu next time:
1. Chili Shrimp Pizza — this is one of their bestsellers (aside from their Greca Pizza and Kung Pao Chicken Pizza)
2. Tina Pizza (red sauce, tinapa flakes, garlic, tomatoes, mozzarella) —- hmmm sounds I wonder how THAT would taste like?
3. Their dessert pizzas: Choco Hazelnut Cream and Choco Banana Cream
