Food Blog: Early Bird Breakfast Club (Century City Mall, Makati)

Eating is a hobby that should be enjoy with friends ♥

I think all of you knew that eating is one of my hobby, despite the fact that I always promise to go on a diet on the next day. Hahaha! What can I do… it’s just so tempting working in Makati where sooo many good restaurants are located.

 This “team (building) foodtrip edition” supposed to be held in Tagaytay originally, but since our schedules did not feel like cooperating (haha!) we just decided to have a team breakfast early in the morning of February 21st, 2015.

 It was my off that day so I came all the way from Novaliches just to dine-in with these beauties (and gentleman – Margo and Dude :p) and guess what my mom looks like when I woke up too early on a Saturday morning when it’s supposed to be my off and should stay in bed until at least noon, just to tell her that I have to go to Makati to meet my officemates – for some “good breakfast”. I know right?!? :p

getting wild @ WILDFLOUR Cafe + Bakery, Salcedo Village

We’ve been exploring Salcedo Village in awhile since it has lots of lots of good restaurants, plus the fact that it’s so near our work place. It’s very easy for us to just walk there after our long and tiring shift at work.

We spotted Wildflour Cafe + Bakery when we went and visited another coffee shop on the area (Commune Coffee Shop), which is really good and cozy, but quite expensive. When we saw this place, well… obviously it’s really beautiful and inviting, so we’ve decided that it will be our next agenda on our next payday. Hehehe. Since the place looks pretty-pretty and expensive, we all decided to wear something nice too, just for FUN and also to look presentable to match the ambiance 🙂

So here’s our little adventure @ WILDFLOUR. Enjoy and be HUNGRY! ;p

GINO’s Brick Oven Pizza (Salcedo Village)

Oh wow! I haven’t been here in awhile. I’ve been really busy for so many reasons these past few days. So anyway, I just tried Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza today with four other people, who are actually my usual food buddies. This place is owned by a Filipino Food Entrepreneur, and “GINO” is actually their son.

Since our office is pretty close in Salcedo Village where most of the delicious restaurants are located, we always find reason to celebrate and drag our craving tongue’s here. So today, we went straight there from work despite the rain from the typhoon Glenda’s Super Power! Hahaha.

So here is our little adventure at this very cozy Neapolitan-style Pizzeria in Makati.

Gluttony 2.0 – A Day in Binondo

This is a trip that we really did plan — like a month of researching and schedule adjustments? Hahaha… this is what usually happen if you are surrounded with friends who knows how to appreciate food as much as you do.

A one day trip in Binondo, Manila is definitely a must try! No matter what streets you turned or sides you walked, there’s a door waiting to be open that can lead you to a room that serves delicious and affordable food.

How to go there: (all I know) is to take the LRT 1 and drop off at Carriedo station. From there, you can just ride a tricycle to take you to Binondo. You can just ask the tricycle to drop you off at Wai Ying Fastfood (our 1st stop), then you can just walk from there to go to the other restaurants. And since this escapade needs a lot of walking (under the sun), make sure to wear light and comfortable clothes and slippers, and might as well bring an umbrella too.

And without further ado, here it is! Enjoy and get hungrrry!

2nd stop:  Shanghai Fried Siopao

Kuya said, they fried the siopao that’s why it’s called Fried Siopao. Hahaha. Makes sense right? :p

1441555_10201015764025335_760786493_n

we were still quiet confused though about the fried siopao, hahaha ;p

3rd stop: Eng Bee Tin (for the pasalubong: hopia and tikoy)

Since we’re still full, we decided to buy some pasalubong first, before we go to ‘Chuan Kee’ – for our much anticipated Halo-Halo!

4th stop: Lord Stow’s Bakery (egg tart)

We just actually passed by this bakery on the road which is not really part of our original itinerary, but since we’ve learned from our research that their Egg Tart is actually delicious, we then decided to just give it a try.

This is absolutely a must try! Although the egg tart ONLY tastes good when it’s still hot.

5th stop: Dong Bei Dumpling

This part is really funny, imagine how big our group is and we just ordered one plate of dumplings?!? Hahaha. The looks on the servers faces are really precious! LOL. Good thing that theirs really not much of customers inside, ’cause they might probably just ask us to eat the dumplings outside, since theirs not much room inside anymore. Hahaha

ONE plate for ONE hundred pesos … for ALL OF US!!! hahaha. Please forgive our still full stomach that time, we just really like to try and taste it.

1463194_10201015691383519_1979099923_n

And this is the ‘ALL OF US’. Hahaha

6th stop: Chuan Kee (Halo-Halo)

Finally! Yes, the place is just actually at the top of Eng Bee Tin, but since this is for dessert, then we have to put it on our last list. It’s halo-halo time beybiii!

1395130_10201015756265141_606725902_n

It’s just actually residing at the top of Eng Bee Tin (our 3rd stop), but we stopped ourselves to go there after EBT, since we’re still full and needed more walk to give those halo-halo some space inside our stomach. LOL

Gluttony 2.0 “Love Desserts”

I love to eat desserts as much as I love travelling and reading books. And you don’t know how much crazy I was when I found out about this cute, pink-iiish, sweet little resto that serves (and ONLY serves) desserts!!! WOW! So much for someone like me who has sweet tooth ;p Sooo there, I visited this sweet haven in Banaue, together with 3 of my officemates who’s as happy and thrilled as I was.

Since this took place months ago, I cannot really remember how exactly to go there or what’s the easiest route for commuters *sorry!*. But here’s their address: 915 Banawe Street corner Del Monte, Quezon City, 1100, Metro Manila.

Your fee to this dessert paradise is only PHP 199.00!!! And you have 2 HOURS to eat everything you like (no left overs puh-leaseee). Their selection includes; brownies, cakes, crepes, cupcakes, halo-halo, milk tea, ice cream and a lot more. If you think that 2 hours is kinda short? NOPE. I myself surrendered after 1hour, and we just talked and bite a few on our 2nd hour. Can’t believe I will surrender to such sweets temptation (wasn’t even able to try the halo-halo ’cause we’re sooo full already!) LOL. I will surely recommend this for you to try it with your family and friends. Love Desserts is definitely a must try place! 🙂

Here’s some of our photos taken during our food trip.
