So whenever an opportunity comes along to eat at the area, i welcome it. I know that there are a lot of nice and unexpected dining places there.
There is always one condition whenever we go here: eat at a place that cannot be found either in Makati or Paranaque
That's why we found ourselves at Kasuga Ramen House.
Their specialty seem to be ramen (obviously, its in the name. LOL), but also because they have a wide array of ramen choices. Looking at the options actually overwhelmed me a bit. I actually had my eyes on the curry ramen, as well as the Tan Men which they said was their best seller spicy ramen. Looking at the picture it sure looked good!
But, it was not a ramen day for us.
We ordered Takoyaki -- just because Jie thought it was my favorite. hehe well, its the thought that counts
When it arrived, it was BIG -- well bigger than the usual that I see. 6 pieces cost Php80 which was pretty good considering that each Takoyaki ball was so filling and heavy. I actually was able to eat only 2. And i was actually forcing myself to finish the second helping!
This Takoyaki though was different from the usual too. See the pinkish filling?
Next on the menu was gyoza. 8 pieces cost Php150 with rice and soup. just add Php 15 and you can actually have your rice converted to chahan ( fried rice).
The yasai itame (stir fried vegetables) with rice and soup also cost just Php 150. We also converted its rice to chahan.
I am not an expert on Japanese food. All i can say is that it is one of my favorite dishes. And what we ordered today was as expected as with the others where I have ordered the same things.
But i plan to go back here. I want to try their ramen. Curious to try...which one, i still have no idea :)
Kasuga Ramen House is located along Sct Esguerra Ave., Quezon City

Sunday lunch was unplanned. After church, we found ourselves roaming around BF Paranaque trying to find a lunch place. This time, we decided on Little Quiapo.
Our awareness of Little Quiapo was as Mom and Dad’s date place. I am not really sure how many times they went there back in their day, but I associate it as their “date place”. Of course, we haven’t been to the original location.

This time around, we tried their salads and pastas, and of course, their sandwiches.

I have been seeing this place in Waltermart Sucat but have not had time to try it. Perhaps because we were always looking for “real food” whenever we pass by the area. Anyway, last night, try it we did.
I can’t say that I am really fond of burgers. Once in a while, I would have a craving but I am not really a “burger” person. So here goes sharing what I can when we tried the place. LOL!
Firstly, BBB is more than just burgers. They also offer rice plates and pasta dishes. Price, I think, was fairly reasonable as I only saw one item which passed the Php200 mark. I think it was reasonable because they were offering 1/3 and quarter pound of beef in their burgers.
For our first time, we tried their BBB Value meal, which was actually a quarter pounder, fries on the side plus iced tea. This one we got for Php 140 (Php 90 for ala carte). Meatballs on pesto pasta was next on our order list (Php118 if I remember correctly). Looking at their side orders, their potato wedges appealed to me (Php65). They also have ice cream but I controlled this craving
I liked that their fries and potato wedges came from real potato. Unlike the other fastfood chains where you are not really sure on the content of their fries. Hehe
I liked their potato wedges! Makes you want to munch and munch and munch. Come to think of it, it is similar to KFC’s french fries.
Pesto was so-so. And the meatballs does not really fit a pesto pasta. I guess the tomato based pasta would go better with the meatballs.
Over all, I would go back to the place. They have other interesting burgers which I would want to try again. The Hahalajeno burger and the 3 cheese burger especially struck me as interesting tries in the future. And they even have a promo now for free fries for every order of select burgers.
I guess BBB is a refreshing alternative to the big fastfood chains.

2 ice cream scoops, macapuno balls, leche flan, ube, sweetened banana, jello on a bed of ice with cereals on top. A cool treat on a hot summer day. :)

My brother recently went home to do some business over the weekend. Since he missed Filipino food, we went out in search of some.
We seldom go to SM Southmall though it was near our place. But I just don’t the traffic that I associate with the place. This time, we were there early (Oh yes! Were we early! Not even 11am!
After roaming for a while, Junjie chose Seafood Island Northshore Grill in Southmall’s Food Street. Aside from him, it was all our first time there. First time too to try it boodle-style.
Kuya Eric opted to order some Rockefeller Oysters ala carte and left choosing the main dish up to us.
It was really hard to choose which ones to eat! They have the usual ala carte but also have the boodle feast which was categorized depending on a province’s specialty. So we found ourselves choosing from the best of Vigan, Bicol, Palawan, etc. We opted for the Boracay which was really bagoong rice, grilled tilapia, liempo, some veggies, adobo sa gata and clams.
When it arrived, we were pleasantly surprised on how big it was!
You’re supposed to eat on the leaves using your hands. But we opted to request for spoon and fork. You may even request for a plate but the problem with this is you will not have room on the tale for both the boodle feast and the plate.
I liked the adobo sa gata the best as the sauce in itself was so creamy, it will entice you to eat lots of rice with just a spoonful of the sauce. The others were the usual grill fare. Since I am not fond too of clams, I don’t really want to comment on that.
I also liked the oysters though it was not as big as those that I have tried. Let’s just say it meets expectation.
With each boodle feast, guests have the option to choose servings good for 3 to 4 persons or for 5 to 7 persons. Each boodle feast ranges from Php 900 to P1,600 per feast.
What a feast indeed!
And no, we did not finish the rice.

It was all our first time at the place. Since it was buffet, we immediately grab plates and dug in.
The place reminded me of Yakimix and I guess I was just so hungry at the time that I thought that City Buffet offered more varieties.
It does not have the grill. All the food were cooked so no need to wait. All you need to do is grab what you want and eat to your heart's content. That's we did. :D
I liked it here based on the sashimi, sushi and maki that they have. They also have ebi and vegetable tempura. That in itself was already worth the money I paid for. (I meant the company paid for. LOL!)
City Buffet was also offering a lot of Filipino food and that includes sisig, bicol express, crispy liempo and baked mussels. Though I did not plan to eat rice that day (oh yes, sometimes I can), I still cannot help but sample these.
|Lemon Chicken and sauteed beans|
They also have buchi and turon including cream puff, brownies and the like as seen below. You can even make your own iced fruits and halo-halo, plus ice cream with all the candied toppings and M&Ms (or was it Nips?). That one though was on a different counter beside the drinks.
Look at all those happy faces after a lunch-merienda-dinner combined in one meal! All worth it for Php499. Drink-all-you-can is on top for Php50 I think. City Buffet also offer lunch for Php399.
Happy tummy! :D

I ordered their tray set which literally was on a tray. It was half shrimp pesto, half a clubhouse, breadsticks and a chocolate. It also came with a four seasons drink (you can actually choose from any of their juices. ) My brothers and mom all ordered baby back ribs which came with rice and potato salad.
Tray costs Php230 while the baby back ribs costs Php295 with soda.
Afterwards it was brewed coffee with free coffee bun.
Quickie and good lunch!
