Food. Food. Food

I promised I'd write about my top ten favorite outfits, however, our laundrywoman did not come for the past two weeks, so all my favorite outfits are in the laundry since I wore them to different parties (which means I can't take an actual photo of those clothes), so this made me think of an even better topic: FOOD

Yes, you heard me right...My friends might say that since I have been dieting this 2012, I am not in the position to write about food, however, I must admit that though I controlled food intake on most of the days, I had cheat days to still enjoy.

I will take this opportunity to write about great food finds this 2012, and I hope that you get to try these places and enjoy the food as much as I did.

1. Wooden Spoon in Katipunan, Quezon City
✓ Stuffed Pechay and their Desserts are to die for.
✓Everything we tried was yummy
✓Service is excellent
✕ Place is quite small so you have to wait to be seated

2. Eat Fresh Famous Hong Kong Street Food in San Juan City
Enjoying a meal at Eat Fresh after work

✓Laksa is highly recommended
✓A variety of food to choose from --- street food (isaw/ intestine) to short orders like Salt and Pepper Squid
✓They serve Lemonade, fruit shake and even Milk Tea
✓Very Affordable
✓There is an available place for dine in and a separate place for take out
✕Parking can be a problem
✕You'll smell like food once you leave the place

3. Pastry Princess in Granada, New Manila Quezon City
My friends and I with Jessa, the staff, of Pastry Princess

✓Salted Caramel and Red Velvet are must tries
✓Very friendly staff
✓Relaxing place to sit and chat
✓Baked by the owner herself (a young teenage girl)
✕Some flavors are only available on certain days

4. Afters Espresso and Desserts in Tomas Morato, Quezon City

5. GREENS Vegetarian Restaurant in Tomas Morato, Quezon City
Our order of Vegetarian Kebab

✓Food is for sharing
✓Sidings are so worth it
✓Outstanding Service
✕Quite Expensive
✕Place easily gets full so reservation will be needed

8. Vikings in SM Marikina

After trying a lot of buffet places this year, I conclude that compared to Yakimix, Sambokujin, Alba, Something Fishy and Buffet 101...Vikings would be my favorite
✓A variety of choices with drinks and dessert included
✓food is immediately replenished
✓Price is very competitive when compared to other buffet places

9. Zoricho in Silver City

✕Other meals are not as good...I suggest that you stick to their specialty (Sausages/ Chorizo)

10. U. P. ... yes!, as in University of the Philippines
✓ Best Isaw (Pork and Chicken Intestines) ever
✓Fruit shake tastes better than Jamba Juice and is way cheaper
✓Street food (Noodles, Fishballs etc) also available
