Dining Out with Family and Friends

If there’s one thing I’m good at, that would be eating. Food has always been my passion. I love it more than my husband. Haha. Just kidding. Actually, the hubby and I have one common denominator – food. We love to eat good food. We also love to try out new restaurants whenever we could afford it.

While we enjoy dining at home (with me cooking for the hubby all the time if it’s just the two of us), we are fond of dining out, too. We visit restaurants with family and friends. If it’s with the hubby’s family, it’s almost always a bonding activity. If it’s with my side of the family, it’s normally a post-shopping agenda. If the dining out is with friends, it’s either a group reunion, a birthday blow-out or a mini get-together.

Best Panizza in Town!

Last Wednesday night, I went to My Kitchen by Chef Chris Locher inside the Oasis Hotel in Paco, Manila. I had dinner there with the husband, my PILs, my SIL, my mom and my two sisters. It was our first time to taste Chef Chris Locher’s panizza which he invented and became famous for back in his days at C’ Italian Dining in Clark, Pampanga.

After tasting four different kinds of panizza (from the six new flavors), I have to say My Kitchen’s panizza is the best in town. They were sooo good! Like, 100% yummy. Among the four panizza whose names escape my memory right now, I liked the one with beef sirloin the best. I also appreciated the fact that all panizza were served hot off the oven and the kitchen was generous with the toppings. The arugula and the alfalfa sprouts, which you eat with the panizza, were fresh and crunchy, too.

Latest Food Trips

If you were following this blog, you would have known I love making lists. One of them is the list of restaurants I’d like to try. This list is already long and yet, I’ve only visited a couple of them. What I do is I cross out the restaurant once I’ve tried it. Recently, I’ve crossed out two: Crazy Katsu and Holdak.

Crazy Katsu is located at the popular foodie destination called Maginahawa St. (Teacher’s Village in UP Diliman) while Holdak is housed at Mezza Residences in Sta. Mesa, Manila. Both are fast casual restaurants that serve good food at very affordable prices.

First Time at Obando Church

Yesterday, the hubby and I, along with my superfriend Nice and my good friend Melay, went on a road trip all the way to Obando, Bulacan. It was Mama Mary’s birthday yesterday and my three religious companions wanted to visit a church we haven’t visited yet as a way of celebrating this holy occasion. We left our Bacoor home at 7am and we were glad to make it just in time for the 9am mass.

The drive to Obando Church (also known as San Pascual Baylon Parish) was long and tiring but it was super worth it. Coming from Cavite, after EDSA and Monumento in Caloocan, you have to drive past Samson Road and turn right at M.H. del Pilar St. all the way to Polo Plaza and from there, the church is only a few kilometers away.

Review: Shakey’s PCM App

One random night last week, the hubby was craving for pizza. He then called up Shakey’s delivery and after less than an hour, received two boxes of hand-tossed pizza at a buy one, take one promo using his Shakey’s Supercard.

Just the other night, it was me who was craving for pizza naman. It was a good thing that I learned about the Shakey’s PCM app. (PCM stands for pizza, chicken and mojos.) Instead of dialing Shakey’s delivery hotline and talking to a real person to place my order, I used the app to order my pizza. It’s quite easy to use. I just keyed in my Supercard number (the hubby’s, actually), chose your pizza/chicken/mojos, proceeded to checkout and sent my order via 3G (wifi is okay, too). After a few minutes, I received a call from a Shakey’s crew confirming my order and informing me how long the delivery would take. You see, they have this policy that if you received your pizza late, it’s free. I didn’t experience getting free pizza, though, because my order arrived on time. I guess luck wasn’t on my side then. Haha.
