Sunday Summary of Food Reviews and Spring Cleaning Blogs.

I’ve hope to make a mark on a good comeback. This week, I have unlocked a new achievement as I have posted 5 times, more than I have ever did (in a week) since I started this blog. And for me, that’s a BIG step towards my goal of “writing myself out there.”

Last Monday, I began my comeback with a review of the pizza chain, Project Pie, and its innovative way of serving customers something new and different with every order. Check it out to find out how!

Mine <3. I came prepared and had all the toppings I wanted. But I was kind of shy to ask for more because the long line is a pressure to bear with. You have to say everything fast and concise when you have about 20 more people behind you, waiting in line.

2 days later, I reviewed Ajisen Ramen, my first take into the domain of the ramen-addicts, and it turned out really gooood. I wonder if this sudden urge of mine to try as many ramen houses is good for my health?

Chashu ramen P305. Basically the same thing with the Ajisen Ramen.

Next was FINALLY getting rid of my old theme and theme headers. Not only that, I also edited my About Me page, my side bars, my footers, and my customized menu! I must say, a heavy burden was lifted off my shoulders when I did the “spring cleaning” of my blog. “Write Yourself Out There” was born properly, this time. To those who are bewildered by my title, this post will explain why I’ve chosen this particular set of words.

Can you believe this was an accidental shot?!

Then my hankering for steaks wormed it’s way into my blog. I just had to make another review of yet another good restaurant. Everything at Steak was a favorite to-go place for…everyone I know actually. So I don’t regret writing many good words about this one 🙂

Not even 24 hours later, I’ve created another post (yes, my hands are really itching to keep typing) to introduce the weekly and monthly features I’ve set up for this blog! I am really excited about this, and so I hope good things would come through this features 🙂

Creating New Features Weekly and Monthly

After staying up all night and finally getting some sleep this morning, I decided to create weekly and monthly features! I figured I needed a hook to commit myself to continuously produce content – even good content. So after listing down all my possible future blog posts ideas (that was a mouthful), I sorted them out to categories. Turns out, I have more possible content on food and personal posts!

So from now on, weekly features will have:

  • Thursday Secret – this will be about confessions, views on life and you know, the usual “secrets” one always have. 😉
  • Food Fridays – will look exactly like the reviews on the restaurants I have posted before. I’ve been trying out a lot of good places lately and I can’t wait to share it with you weekly!
  • Sunday Summary – will be about my weekly summaries. So to give my posts a longer shelf-life, I’ll blog about my after thoughts on my past entries and give short descriptions about them.

On the monthly features section, I wanted to tie myself to a huge responsibility I have been dodging around for years. Truth is, I have a long-term unfinished fiction novel. I’ve been meaning to work on it again, but never had the full commitment of even writing one chapter. So to do myself a favor, I’ll post a chapter here every month. And to further help me, I’m also going to read and review one book each month.

Monthly features will be:

  • Third Tuesday Tales –  The story is about a girl who couldn’t choose between twins that were separated at birth. (cliché, I know. But give it a chance!)
  • Second Saturday Book Reviews – I used to read about 3 books a week, it has now dwindled to one book a month, and even that’s a challenge. But I promise to keep this promise!

I’m also thinking about having a monthly Q&A with my readers and the community I’m hoping to be a part of. But do you think that’s already taking on too much? Or is it too early in the game to have a Q&A?

What are your weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, annual features? 🙂

P.S. Got the idea from The Daily Post 🙂 Love their  Blogging 101: Zero to Hero, will try to make posts based on them soon!

All Steak Lovers – Everything at Steak (Banawe)

Among my list of favorite food, steak is definitely part of the top 3 contenders. This is why I am so glad a branch of Everything at Steak is in Banawe. Steak, with all its beefy glory, has always sat well with me and my family.

5342

Everything at Steak, with its GREAT QUALITY STEAKS, has become one of our favorite restaurants. There was 1-2 months when I was still in high school that we even had this weekly thing called “Steak Fridays.” Either we cook some at home or we go eat at E.A.T. In most cases, we go straight to Banawe and head for Everything at Steak right after school. I’m talking about my family here. A family of 4 girls and our parents. All steak lovers.

But of course, I’ve been so used to this place it didn’t occur to me to blog about it. Not until Renz (who has steak as his No. 1 favorite food) mentioned it to me. 😉

This branch is not particularly big. It’s almost always full come lunch or dinnertime (opens at 11:30 am). So as usual, Renz and I come here between 2-5 pm to avoid the crowds. First thing you’ll notice upon entering is the yellow interior design. Yellow wall paint, creamy table colors, yellow placemats, and white metal chairs. The place could only seat 8-10 groups max. Give or take the number of people per group. In front, the parking space can only accommodate 4 cars. But you can always park across the street beside the sidewalk for free, the parking “guys” there allow it.

5341

Another worthy reason why we love this place so much is the price. Where else could you get a great STEAK coupled with a cup of RICE and a choice of SIDE DISH for less than P300?! This place is truly a bargain. 🙂

5344

I’m going to teach you how to order so you don’t miss out. First, choose your meat.

  • T-bone (love this one, but comes with fatty parts)
  • Rib-eye (what a great piece! Has no bone nor fats)
  • New York steak (tried it once, not that recommended)
  • Less-boned chicken (for those who are NOT looking for red meat)
  • Lamb choice (tried it once, didn’t sit well with me)

The T-bone and the Rib-eye steaks are your best bets. They are the ones usually preferred by the customers. 🙂

3167

Rib-eye steak

Next, and this is an important part, you have to specifically say how you prefer your steak cooked. Well done, medium well done, medium, medium rare, rare. I always go for the medium rare because I like it to have a red center and love how soft it is.

Medium rare. Brown on the outside, red on the center.

3rd, choose your side dish. There are about 18 side dishes to choose from. Here are my top 5:

  • Mac & Cheese – Ah, my childhood love ❤
  • Meatball pasta – bowl of pasta topped with one piece of meatball.
  • Coleslaw – for those trying to be “healthy” (HAHA)
  • Twice-baked potato – YUM!
  • 2 piece fried egg – mainly because it is acceptable for my dukan diet PP days.

4th, choose a type of rub/flavoring on your steak. New Orleans Rub or Original Marinade (both are good!)

5th, there are 5 choices of sauce. My top 3 are: Barbecue, Original Mushroom Gravy and Peppercorn Gravy.

And that’s how you order your steak dish!  Remember, be very specific!

 

They also offer other dishes such as salmon fillets and good burgers, if you opt not to go for steaks 🙂 Other dishes (which I promise to take pictures of next time I visit) are their appetizers (country squash soup, chicken wings etc.) and their desserts (shepherd’s pie, apple crumble pie etc.) are all recommendable!

But one outstanding appetizer we never miss out on every time we’re there is the Moo Fries. Its one of the best combination of delectable chili, sour cream sauce and crunchy fries! You have to try them!

Dear God, I hope whoever is reading this can reach out from their screen and taste this. ;)

Dear God, I hope whoever is reading this can reach out from their screen and taste this. 😉 P140-P150.

So there! I’ll update this post again next time we visit Everything at Steak 🙂 Some post-thoughts: Be really specific when ordering, I hope I have stressed this enough, now that I’m mentioning it for the 3rd time. The waitresses sometimes confuse whose order is whose especially when taking a lot of orders. This can destroy your experience, so be SPECIFIC! (4th time! lol). Also, the place is not that posh. It definitely needs some re-decorating again. But hey, if that doesn’t bother you, do visit them! Come for the food and I’m sure you’ll hardly notice the decorating 🙂

Thanks for reading!

P.S. They used to play Friends (series) on their tv screens, one of the reason I came to love the show. So many happy memories in this place 🙂 I hope you can have good memories here, too!

It’s a Ramen kind of day – Ajisen Ramen (Sto. Domingo/Banawe)

Ahh, the ramen. One of the most famous staple food of the Japanese people. Next to the yogurt, milk tea, Belgian waffles and cronuts, the ramen has been making its way to many Filipino stomachs. Japanese Ramen is becoming quite a fad, not only to food enthusiasts, but to many business owners as well.

Of course, when it comes to culinary cultures, authenticity is very important. That’s why a lot of ramen “houses” has been sprouting all over the metro. Ajisen Ramen is the one of first ones within miles in the Sto. Domingo/Banawe area in Quezon City.

Wonder what this insightful inscription mean?

The place was spacious and it had a good ambiance about it. However, Renz and I always come at an afternoon time so its rare for us to chance upon the lunch or dinner crowd.

Upon being led to a table, a waitress will ask about your preference of tea. Whether you like it hot or cold. I’m not one for cold tea when trying to have authentic Asian food so I always go for the hot tea (or maybe its just the chinita in me lol).

❤  that its matcha tea.

They offer a great deal of ramen choices and a wide range of different Japanese dishes. But between Renz and I, we could only order so much. Perhaps on our next visit 🙂

I hope their menu can provide you an idea of what to order here :)

Now, for what every reader has been waiting for when reading food reviews; the actual food pics!

Ajisen Ramen P265. This is their signature ramen.

I found this to be very delicious because the soup was really rich. Though I added a little spice just to satiate my palate.

When you feel like your Ajisen Ramen is a bit lacking in the pork bbq department, then this is the bowl for you. It adds 4 more pork bbq topping.

Seafood Ramen P305. Feeling a bit heavy from all the red meat? Then its the seafood ramen for you!

The seafood ramen was good, but I found it to be a bit “malansa” for my taste. But the soup has a different taste from the Ajisen. So I’m thinking maybe it had a different soup base? Anyway, the soup saved the dish for me.

Beef Teppanyaki Ramen P395. Very goooood!

Renz declared this one to be the best of them all. Even though it didn’t have a lot of toppings except for the egg and the imported beef steak, this was definitely his favorite.

Kani Sarada P138. Appetizer to the ravenous.

Their kani salad was nothing special, but if you want to have some appetizers first and would like to stick within a budget, then this is for you.

To summarize, yes. I would surely comeback to Ajisen Ramen! I want to try some of their other dishes and whatnot. Their ramen is one of the best I’ve tasted so far. Just thinking of their rich ajisen soup base and fresh noodles is making me salivate right now!

Only, try to come when there’s fewer people because they can be quite understaffed. When we were in the middle of the meal, about 3-4 more groups of people came in and they only had about 2 waitresses working. Their prices are quite high though reasonable, so if you want to stay within a budget, keep in mind that they also have service charge.

Peanut Butter Nutella or Green Bell Peppers & Meatballs? – Project Pie (Bluebay Walk)

There has been a much going hype around an international pizza chain that has landed in the Philippines just recently. Of course, I’m talking about Project Pie (know all about it here – projectpie.com)

Obviously, its a huge success because branches of Project Pie has since been popping up in the metro. And so I thanked God when finally, a branch opened up somewhat nearer home.

Project Pie in Bluebay Walk – when we visited Bluebay Walk it was turning out to be a definite food destination, so we HAD TO try at least 2 different restos at a time. With this visit, we went for Hotstar (review next time!) and Project Pie. Trying out Project Pie was A MUST. I mean, where else could you get a pizza with unlimited toppings for only P285?! My mind kept telling me that I must simply check out this incredible bargain.

We arrived at about 3 to 4 pm on a friday, not the typical mealtime so to avoid the rush hours. Imagine my surprise when there were about 30 people inside waiting in line! #reallypopular  (I guessed those branches are not popping up fast enough lol).

Their interior design is really nice and minimalist. :)

See those people in line? I was like number 31 :O

You will also be greeted by a server-girl who will explain the mechanics of how to order. She was repeating her whole easy-going speech to each person or group standing in line. Wew! What a job! But she still felt really friendly to me even though a lot of people definitely asked her a lot of questions (good service) 😉

What pulls the crowd to such a place is not only the nice interior or the friendly staff, because it definitely has something to do with the innovative way of having a create-your-own-pizza experience with unlimited toppings for only P285!

They also offer pizzas that aren't made to order, but nothing goes way beyond your budget of P285 :)

Just imagine not having to be so conventional with your pizzas. No more of the manager’s choice or just the pepperoni or the pineapple WITH ham only. This time you could have all of them! Plus the luxury of adding moooore!

Renz's pizza. He was a bit pressured to go all the way with his toppings because I was prodding him to hurry up :D

All in all, our experience was good. The pizzas tasted great because they were freshly baked and our choice of toppings really went well. But then again, the taste of your pizza depends on you. So make sure you’ve trained your palate really well! The only let down was the looong line. We stood in line for about 30 mins and waited another 15 mins for our pizzas to cook. My advice, don’t come when you think its already near lunch or dinner time. When you have a short patience and can’t bear to wait? Definitely don’t come on the weekends either.

But its definitely, definitely worth a try! Don’t miss out just because you can’t wait! Bring some friends and swap with each other when waiting in line! 😉 Makes it more fun and exciting lol 😀

Sunday Dates

Ahh, what I coincidence! I am now writing this on a Sunday morning. Well, if you consider 4:30 am to be ‘morning.’ I couldn’t sleep and so I decided to write something about Sundays. Recently, Renz and I had a lot of Sunday dates. These past few weeks, ever since he got the permission to drive alone, he has been picking me up at home and taking me out almost every week. You could say this might be a major advancement in our relationship. We used to have a hard time setting up dates cause both of us are lazy asses when it comes to commuting around the city, or just to the nearest mall. We used to have at least one date every two months or so. So yeah, going out every sunday for the past month is definitely a major thing.

This was the first time Renz picked me up from school, we’re on the way to my house.

I got a picture of his first time to fetch me! :)

I got a picture of his first time to fetch me! 🙂

When the weekend came, that Sunday was particularly like this one. Rainy, cloudy and non-stop downpour. But that didn’t stop Renz from picking me up from my house and driving down to Banawe. Unfortunately, I remember that was the weekend before all those suspension of classes last August. It was raining so hard we couldn’t see the road anymore. When we saw Tea Rock had empty parking spaces, I suggested we go there while we wait for the rain to stop.

tea rock

This was our first time in Tea Rock. We pass by the place most of the time but its always fully packed, and its really hard to find a place to park.

20130915-144045.jpg

Can you guess which one is mine? 🙂

They offer a variety of milk teas and some dishes that looks quite good. However, we only got the chance to order drinks because we just came from Everything at Steak at the time. Even if the rain kind of dampened on our parade, this date was remarkably memorable to me. It was the first time Renz picked me up from my house and drove me home after that. 🙂

That following Sunday, Renz arrogantly called me up again and said he wanted to eat lunch outside. HAHA. So I suggested Cafe Monaco and 20 minutes later, he’s on my porch steps.

Photo 8-12-13, 5 54 25 PM

We looooove the food in Cafe Monaco, it’s been one of our favorite places to eat ever since. It’s a quaint little cafe near the corner of Banawe and Retiro St. We have been going there ever since high school, especially me. I discovered this place with my best friends. 🙂

The next Sunday, it was me who had a hankering for food. I remembered this was the weekend before hell week (the week were all the profs cram every quiz, every lesson in mind so to ‘prepare’ us for the finals). My mind was going crazy from all the papers I had to write (7) and all the trigbio (trigonometry for bio majors) I had to memorize. Here comes Renz to the rescue.

NERD MODE! 😀

Banawe’s newly built Ersao.

Ok, since we both hailed from the same high school, we both had the same liking for this place called Ersao. Ersao started as a little food stall in our school’s village and it grew to the enterprise it is now. So when a franchised store opened in Banawe, it became our hang out place. Mostly because, it’s the only tea place that offers that green tea beverage I’m drinking. (No sugar!)

My nerd shot.

And this is the week before finals. Gahh look at those eye bags! We went to Krispy Kreme, where I cheated off my diet. We also had dinner with half of his family that night. I really didn’t expect that turnaround at all, but I definitely had fun and learned a lot of things about Renz from his mom. 🙂

Photo 9-14-13, 12 09 00 AM

Just this week 🙂

Just this Friday, after my meeting with an event committee, Renz informed me that he wasn’t able to go to the gym. Instead, he wanted to go out for some steaks. Oh, growing boys and their stomachs. 😀 So we went to Everything at Steak. This resto offers, as of this post and to my knowledge, the most affordable steaks in town. Its even coupled with side dishes!

Anyway, next time I’m going to make a comprehensive review and blog about these restos. We go to these places so often, I’m not used to taking pictures of places I’ve been to anymore. 🙂

The reason I made this post is because I need more date ideas! All we do is eat or watch movies, we certainly have to mix things up. What can be a good and easy way to make a date fun? :*

Vikings SM North Edsa – Review

For Renz’s birthday, we went to Vikings last Sunday, Sept. 8, to celebrate it. As I had promised, here is the review of our experience at Vikings SM North Edsa. 

The first time we visited Vikings was when it was still brand new and its only branch was located near MOA. During that time, I made sure to make reservations because I heard of the long lines ‘walk-in’ people had to endure. But this time around, I didn’t have enough time because I wasn’t even sure we were going in the first place. It was exactly 11am when we arrived, and we were already number 30 on the waiting list (for the walk-ins) to be seated. When they opened the place, the people with reservations went in first and the walk-ins followed after. It wasn’t such a long wait, about 10 mins or so, and our number was called. What’s important here is, you have to be THERE when they call you or else your number will be forfeited and you’ll have to go back to the last of the line again.

526765_154513534714581_569646417_n

Another thing is, I’m not sure about this though, but it’s noteworthy to arrive in big groups. You will certainly get the best seats in the house. I’ve been to Vikings twice and at both times, I only had Renz for company. So two people means, you only get the small table and two chairs. Now this isn’t that much of a big deal, except all their tables reserved for only two people are either in the back of the restaurant or some far away place from the buffet stations. The walk you’ll have to do back and forth ALL the food stations is long enough that you’ll have to start picking at your plate of food before you even get to your seat. It’s a really big place and they totally made sure they get the value of the whole place.

On to the food!

Mah first plate of food!

My first plate of food!

Immediately after being seated, we grabbed plates and started to fill them with food. Now with so many selections, I always have a motto for these buffets. That is: 1) to only fill my stomach with those I haven’t tried before and to only try a morsel of it. 2) DON’T try to get what you’re already used to. and 3) Get some of your MOST favorites, but only SOME. So here, my favorites include the okonomiyaki, ebi tempura and onion rings (which wasn’t that great). The other things, I haven’t tried before. I don’t remember all their names though, I was busy browsing through more than 10 buffet stations to keep up.

2nd plate of yumminess.

2nd plate of yumminess.

Anyone who knows me will know that I have always been a sucker for salmon sashimi. And anyone who knows Renz will know he is a sucker for steak. I had about 2 plates of salmon sashimi and I think that made the buffet price worth it already. HAHA. But Renz had more than 2 plates of these steaks. The grilling station had one of the longest lines because they cook it for you while you wait. I like my steaks cooked medium-rare and Renz’s likes it medium-well. The best they had to offer was ribeyes and australian beefs of some kind. Delectables found in this plate are: Calamares, lasagna, salmon and ika sashimi, steaks and different kinds of sauce offered for it.

Japanese Cuisine for me!

Japanese cuisine for me!

The best cuisine suited for my taste buds has always been Japanese. I don’t know why but when it comes to buffets, I always make a beeline for the sushi and the sashimi. Of course, I only tried those that looked different to me and those I haven’t taste-tested before. So you won’t find any california maki here, no sir. Since I’m chinese and I usually eat at chinese restaurants, I never made it to the chinese food section. I didn’t taste any of the dim sum or any of that sweet and sour pork. They are too common for my tongue. But Renz had some of the hakaws (shrimp dumplings) and said they were delicious. So try them! The baked oysters are located in the most far away station from our table but I made sure to get some. I actually had to wait for the waiters to bring out some more, because as soon as a new batch arrives, its gone in a minute. So when you visit, make sure to try them too. They aren’t that great in texture actually, I even felt some tiny rocks in them, but they do taste great in terms of the ‘cheesiness.’

Cool isn't it?

Cool isn’t it?

SUKIYAKI! <3

SUKIYAKI ❤

They had a food station for soup and offered a variety of it. It’s for request and they will bring the whole pot to your table. Unfortunately for us, our table was small and this cool thing had to be placed at the edge of it. But nonetheless, I found this to be very convenient. This way the soup can be kept boiling while it cooks and when we didn’t want to finish it all in one sitting, it’s still piping hot. Renz and I are suckers for sukiyakis, too. 😀

Photo 9-8-13, 1 16 50 PM

Desserts – plate of heaven sweetness

As I said before, don’t try something ordinary. So no fruity desserts for me or chocolate mousse. Go for the gold and those that looks appetizing for your palette. I’m in love with anything red velvet as you can see. So here are some red velvet crinkles (NOT recommended), a small slice of red velvet cake (RECOMMENDED), the famous cronuts and a small slice of white fudge cake. I loved their red velvet cake, I even had to go back for seconds. But it was the cronuts that Renz fell in love with. I think he had six of those bite size half croissants and half donuts. The white fudge cake was alright.

Photo 9-8-13, 1 16 59 PM

Green and Blue 😉

Imagine my disappointment when I discovered the green colored ice cream was NOT green tea. I really thought it was matcha green tea flavored. It was avocado all along. But it was alright, I can really taste the avocado in it. The blue colored one is bubblegum flavored. The waiter didn’t asked me if I wanted them in separate bowls, he just dumped two scoops of each when I told him I wanted the green one and the blue one. Weirdly, they tasted great together! Don’t forget to try these desserts too!

All in all, we had a great time at Vikings SM North Edsa. Except for a few pointers here and there, the experience is almost the same as the one in MOA. Well, the one in MOA is bigger and offers more variety of food. But what I love here is that this branch is nearer to us and its inside the mall. That way, you don’t have to wait outside the venue, unlike the one in MOA (especially when it’s really hot outside).

By the way, prices ~ prices 🙂
