Focaccia

"Food is the most primitive form of comfort" -Sheilah Graham

I can vividly remember the day I ate in Focaccia. It was the same day when I watched Divergent and I’m feeling at my best since I’m pretty satisfied with the movie. The consequence is that I set the bar high for dinner so as to maintain the sky high score on my happiness meter. Luckily, this Italian restaurant, which I’ve long been dying to try, left me with a huge smile on my face.

We chose Calamari Fritti (P240) as our antipasto and I highly recommend it because the squid is perfectly fried, not too greasy, and not rubbery or gummy at all. The aioli sauce is not the best in the world but I still managed to finish it.

Faburrito

If you’re craving for tasty yet  healthy,comfort food, make sure to drop by Faburrito. What I like most about this place is that they don’t utilize MSG, preservatives, or sugar. Furthermore, this humble restaurant shares a part of their proceeds to charity. This and several other reasons make Faburrito worth visiting.

Dining here entails following few simple steps. First you have to choose your dish (burrito, tacos,burrito bowl or salad) Next you have to choose your meat and size (mango bbq chicken, grilled tenderloin steak, cajun rubbed pork, grilled battered fish, or fajita mushrooms) The last step is picking which salsa and dressing you want for your dish.

Strawberry Bing Soo from Cafe de Seoul

This is my summer comfort food. It’s the perfect dessert to beat the April heat. Their bing soo comes in various flavors but since I’m a berry fan, I chose strawberry. How about you? What’s your summer pick?

El Chupacabra

I’ve heard several stories on how good the street tacos are in El Chupacabra. The foodie in me woke up and I tagged along some of my colleagues to personally try the much raved about Mexican dishes in the streets of Felipe.

My friend tried the  Spicy Goat tacos (P150) since we all have no idea how goat meat tastes like. The waitress said it’s a must try so we thought of giving it a shot. The menu said it’s cooked in classic mexican birria stew, which should taste spicy and herby. It surpassed our expectations although we still prefer beef over goat solely because the meat is more tender.

Recovery Food

It was a very busy week for me and my friends so where else is a better place to unwind and catch up than Recovery Food. It’s my first time to try this famous all-day breakfast restaurant and although I’m not a huge fan of breakfast meals, I was able to appreciate the kind of food that they are offering.

S.S.T. (P280/full recovery), one of their bestselling dishes, is basically rice topped with sweet spicy tuyo and scrambled eggs. I highly suggest you avail their aligue/talangka rice (additional 50php) to achieve its optimum flavor.
