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.

Some Thoughts on Dining Out

While dining out is fun, it can get expensive. As much as I wanted to skip dining out to save money, I can’t. There’s a lot of new and old restaurants to try, which means there’s also a lot of good food to taste and a lot of good company to have a fun time with.

While entertaining at home is also a good option, many people prefer dining out today when meeting with friends or spending some quality time with their loved ones. It’s must be because it’s more convenient and requires less effort than cooking food and setting up the dining table and cleaning up the mess after. Personally, I do enjoy entertaining at home despite all the hassles, but only during special occasions and when I’m in the mood for laboring in the kitchen (which is seldom).

Missing Binondo and Chinese Food!

Two Fridays ago, I had a fantastic Chinese lunch courtesy of our former boss (and one of my wedding godparents, too). She had some Chinese food sent over to our office all the way from a restaurant at the Makati Golf and Country Club. Ang sushal lang. Haha.

While enjoying the delicious Chinese food, I suddenly missed Binondo. I remembered the food trips hubby and I used to have there in the past. We’ve tried and enjoyed the food at Wai Ying Fastfood, Masuki, Estero, Dong Bei Dumpling, Sincerity Cafe, and Cafe Mezzanine. I planned for us to try more hole-in-the-wall eateries and dainty restaurants that serve authentic Chinese dishes but my previous pregnancy (and my delicate condition for that matter) prevented us from doing so.

Dining at Blackbeard’s Seafood Island, SM Manila

Do you enjoy eating with a group? Do you like the idea of eating on a table filled with food for everyone to enjoy at the same time? How about eating with your bare hands, sans spoon and fork, for a more familiar dining experience? You can experience all that and more at the newly-opened restaurant called Blackbeard’s Seafood Island in SM Manila.

I’ve experienced dining at their Alabang Town Center branch before and just recently, I attended the grand opening of their SM Manila branch (along with two other new restaurants) though I didn’t get to taste their popular “boodle feasts” because I was already too full by then. I was so excited to try their food again that I brought the hubby and my SIL there just the other night.
