Red Garlic Bistro Cafe @ Katipunan-Blue Ridge
Katipunan-Blue Ridge has become a restaurant row and this place got me and my husband curious because it is always full.  We learned that it is owned by a partnership with Raymart Santiago among one of the partners.

We ordered the house specialty pasta, Sardinia, the pizza Trio, and carrot cake.  The pasta has home-made sardines and it is really yummy!  Hubby and I finished it in, like, three minutes, haha.  I think I read somewhere that home-made sardines is Raymart's specialty.  It's very good talaga.  You won't want to eat bottled sardines for a while after tasting the home-made variety.  One order of pasta is good for sharing so at Php300, it's a good deal.

We chose the five-cheese, shrimp and chorizo variants for the Trio.  I loved the chorizo variant but all are delish.  Kinda expensive at Php500.

The carrot cake with cream cheese frosting (Php175/slice) was absolutely delightful.  Carrot cake should always be paired with cream cheese frosting.  This particular carrot cake met all the qualities I like in a carrot cake:  cream cheese fosting, chopped walnuts, carrot bits that you can actually see and that spice or kick from cinnamon.  Too bad hubby and I were not happy with the cappuccino we ordered.   Skip the coffee next time, but not the cake.

Kowloon House West Ave. - sadly all the dishes that were served - matabang. :( We ate there for the reception of our friend's wedding, and had: roast chicken, lechon, sweet&sour pork, beef with green peppers, broccoli with oyster sauce, pancit with sauce (don't know what it's called), and yang chao fried rice. ang medyo masarap lang yung broccoli dish. the rest disappointing. and ang dumi daw ng restroom sa function room! i said "daw" kasi sa restroom ako sa ibaba, sa restaurant mismo, nagpunta... but my friends said parang baha yung banyo sa may 2nd floor function room  :o

I super enjoyed lunch at Cuillere last week. There were two of us and we ordered the following:

Cream of Mushroom
Fresh Oysters (half a dozen)
Lamb Riblets with Ratatouille Mint Rice
Tenderloin Steak with Blue Cheese Sauce
Iced Tea (Peach, Tamarind, Raspberry)

Very creamy and yummy cream of mushroom soup. Oysters weren't as plump as I hoped, but still good. Tenderloin was, well, tender and cooked perfectly. Lamb riblets were quite dry, but the ratatouille mint rice made up for it. Loved all the iced tea flavors!

Overall, it was a good dining experience. Total bill was Php 1,945 but I felt it was worth it. Would definitely come back. Like, maybe later for lunch. :D

^ We weren't that happy with Cuillere naman.  We dined there two weeks ago.  I liked my beef ribs but my husband was not happy with his steak.  It was bloody though he asked that it be cooked medium well.

My mom's sea bass though was cooked perfectly.

Red Kimono. hehe.

They offer wide variety of sushi's, may parang vegetarian sushi's pa para sa mga health conscious. Their tempura is good too, (lahat naman ng tempura para sakin masarap). You can try their tonkatsu, and noodles too. For the price typical Japanese restaurants. :))

Marriott Cafe (Marriott Hotel Manila) - my friends and i were thinking of where to go for dinner for our annual Christmas celebration, then yung isa namin friend ayaw pumayag na hindi buffet :P we tried calling Manila Pen, but their earliest available seating will be 8:3)pm pa daw. so we tried the buffet at the Marriott Cafe, and we weren't disappointed. service was superb, and the food selection was quite good, too! i was really impressed with their US Ribeye steak, e hindi naman ako meat-lover. nagulat hubby ko because i went back for the steak twice pa hehe. the tempura was good din daw. masarap din yung roast duck, cream dory roulade (wrapped in thin eggplant strips).

they also offered free hot tea, i got jasmine green tea which helped with how all that food settled in my tummy :p  oh and their dessert station was really good din! we all loved the coffee crumble gelato (much bitter compared to Selecta's, but really masarap!), Palawan honey and walnut gelato, and their mixed berries yogurt. i'd love to come back to this cafe/restaurant! :)

by the way, price for the buffet (we went there for dinner on Monday night) - P1550 nett per person ;)

Cafe Juanita at Kapitolyo, Pasig

My girl friends and I had dinner here last night.  The place reminds me of a lola's house.  Ang daming antiques!  We ordered the following:

Gambas - okay lang for me, I've tasted better gambas elsewhere.

White lumpia - the ubod was tender, this was a healthy dish.

Crispy pata - ang sarap!  The skin was crispy and the meat was very tender. 

Kare-kare - my favorite dish.  This was super good!  Alam mong hindi peanut butter ang ginamit kundi roasted peanut and roasted rice na dinurog until maging super fine - the old-fashioned way to make the peanut base for kare-kare.  I also like the fact na ang ginamit na parts, the tripe, pata and knee (as opposed to chunks of beef sa ibang restos), made the kare-kare more flavorful.  Ang sarap talaga nito!

Sticky toffee pudding - super duper yummy dessert.   Must try ito.

Mini-turon - I am not a banana person so I was not looking forward to this.  May luya siya.

Service was a bit slow though because the restaurant was full.

CASA FILIPINO BY CHEF LAUDICO sa sct torillo cor. sct fernandez

Had such high hopes for this resto. But it's a fail for me. Customer service is really bad, food is just so-so.
