Mi Casa is your Casa Filipino

Looking for a good reason to nix the diet and chow down?  Check this place out,Tucked away from the major hustle and bustle of Tomas Morato Quezon City is Casa Filipino,  for us it’s the grown up version of a Filipino buffet. No new left overs hear,  hopefully hehehe .

image

Entrance to Casa Filipino

image

image

Here are a couple of reasons to break away from that mean new diet

image

Angus beef belly

Crispy Lechon Kawali

image

Chili Crabs and Kare Kare

image

Vegetable frittata and tomato cream pasta

image

buttered vegetables and pinaputok na isda

image

Yes there is more,  as you can see we got there pretty early and for much of lunch we had the restaurant to ourselves. 

image

The appetizers,  yah,  my suggestion is for you to just drive into the steam Molo and Sisig shooters.  The rest are fillers for me. 

image

Sisig shooters anyone,  Sisig on a crip tart and shot down with soy sauce.

image

Fried stuff and sauces,  try the orange chili sauce it’s good!

image

What would dessert be with out halo-halo hehehe.  shooters but still Halo-halo, the shaved ice and mixed of sweetened milk will make you go back for seconds. 

image

Directions and menu prices. 

image

So if your looking for volume Filipino food, are willing to pay a little extra and get properly prepared Filipino food we recommend dropping by Casa Filipino.

King of Club Sandwiches

When our relatives come from different parts of the world , We always make it a point to bring them to Manila Hotel. Not only does this place offer good quality food, it also offers an awesome view of the manila bay. The hotel houses historical paintings , grand interiors and a history that would make any Filipino proud. Manila hotel has been around for almost 100 years making it an iconic place in Metro Manila. The hotel survived the Spanish , Japanese and American occupancy. But we’re not here to talk about the hotel. We’re here to discuss our recently discovered great buy from this hotel.

The recently renovated Cafe Ilang Ilang made all of us curious. We’ve tried the buffet and made our own verdicts of it ( which we do plan to write about ) but what had us enthusiastically blogging now Is their clubhouse sandwich.
20121030-221348.jpg

The Manila hotel club house sandwich (P600) can make any sad person happy. When it arrived on our table we were all in shock. The size was enormous and the actual sandwich is wrapped inside a bread wall. It also comes with butter , pate, coleslaw , some fruits and a cone of freshly made and fried home made fries.

20121030-222327.jpg
Taking a closer look At the sandwich you will notice layers and layers of goodness. Starting off with the buttered bread, then Bacon , some veggies, chicken strips ,hard boiled egg and finally topped with an olive. We think that Four people can actually share this order. The pate is also good to include in the sandwich, Not to mention the home fries served with their special mayonnaise…. This ultimate combination will keep you coming back for more..

Makati Milk Kraze (MMK)

Carmen’s best artisan ice cream and Holly’s Farm fresh milk.

A few nights back we found ourselves in makati and with a hankering for Ice cream , we both decided to hit the blogs and agreed on the nearest one. Carmen’s Best ,yes! Upon browsing thoroughly, we discovered that this ice cream is Quite popular (yay us even more) winning the Rockwell Ultimate Taste Test awards (UTT) a few years back. So….. We got even more excited. 🙂
Looking for Carmen’s Best icecream is not that easy. We had to search through different blogs in order to find its source and finally with the help of our awesome planet (OAP) were able to find it.

20121030-184650.jpg
Our source for icecream heaven is found in a scary building along Valero st. We suggest calling Them before you go. So the guard can greet you and escort you to their secret spot.
20121030-184732.jpg20121030-184746.jpg

The guard presented us with 7 flavors : Hazelnut , Tahitian vanilla , vanilla, Brazilian coffee , Brazillian coffee almond , Cookie dough and cheese. According to OAP the best flavors were salted caramel, coffee, butter pecan, and malted milk. Sadly, We got none of that since this trip was unplanned 😦 We opted for the cookie dough instead and quickly ate it in the car. Everything hsppened so fast from here on… My partner kept saying that the ice cream might melt… But I seriously think he was just excited to try it and…. Finish it!

20121030-184718.jpg
This small dairy heaven place also offers farm fresh milk….

Carmen’s BEST
Centrum II Building, 150 Valero Street, Salcedo Village, Makati, Philippines

Greeka kouzina – loving the Greek

Finding hole-in-a-wall restaurant and new places to eat has always been our passion. One lazy Thursday evening, we decided to roam around greenhills and spotted this new Greek restaurant. We found out from the owner that the place is just a few weeks old…. How often can you find a stand alone Greek restaurant right? And of all locations… Greenhills. Most of our exposure to Greek food is heavily influenced by Cyma so having another option for Greek food is very much welcomed in our world!

20121013-155128.jpg20121030-123338.jpg
So upon entering we noticed the nice ambience of the place. It’s very simple and colorful. The restaurant is adorned with different colored lamps making one feel welcome and at home. We browsed their menu and found a lot of selection. They offer salads, appetizers , pasta, gyros, main course with side dishes and dessert.

20121030-121557.jpg
20121030-121353.jpg

We ordered the blue cheese salad ( can’t find the photo ) and Greeka’s signature dish, Lamb Roast. The lamb is served with roasted potatoes, lemon, mint sauce and gravy. The owner mentioned that it was slow roasted for over 5 hours making the meat so soft and tender. The Lamb’s taste is a perfect combination of simple herbs and spices all marinated into perfection. We really like the portioning and size of this dish.

20121030-121708.jpg
Not to mention, the main entree comes with a free side dish. You can choose from salads, appetizers and vegetables. We opted for the moussaka since it was one of their best sellers. We seriously wanted more.. The blending of the eggplant, cheese, potato and tomato sauce makes my heart melt… I would definitely comeback for more of their moooooooo sakaaaa !
20121030-121734.jpg

til then Greeka! We do plan to come back here to try out their Porkchop, Salmon and Gyros…. Can’t wait!

Cake Club in Diamond Hotel Manila !!!

Cake Club now open at Diamond Hotel , what up Manila !!!

I’m really wondering why we are happy about this , its like we kissed all our saved up cash and calories goodbye.

We would like to think it’s because Manila has more choices now! and that we don’t have to go through the hassle of braving traffic swamped roads to satisfy our sweet tooth.

It is Best to come here in the evening , to chill out with friends and avail of their discounted items! 30-50% if we are not mistaken . We love going to hotels around the area at night specially when they have their cakes and pastries on sale… Its mostly between 7-8 pm . you can check out Sofitel , Hyatt and Manila Hotel too they offer the same deals.

Introducing the sinfully delicious foie gras macaroon, its so good that we had to close the box. ( yes we ate everything and forgot to take photos)

We first saw this at run around girl’s post and got curious as to what it would taste like ? one thing led to another and we found ourselves stuck in traffic and going to Fort. Still worth the hassle …but now even better since they have it in Manila .

Which makes me think , why aren’t more of these cafe’s and bakeries opening up in Manila ? we have the most of universities , we have a sizable middle to high income families as well as a slur of government officials who are more than willing to pay for the good stuff ?

Going back, to cake club , they are to the left of Diamond Hotel’s main entrance.

Some of the cakes and pastries available at the cake club / coffee shop at the hotel lobby .

Try the Le Royale , its crazy good ! like a creamier ferrero chocolate ball with a hint of bitterness .

They also have an assortment of ice cream

In case you have questions you can reach them at
