Ramen Nagi Part 2

I’m not a ramen fan as most of you guys are but whenever I crave for this hiw bowl of Japanese noodle soup, especially during the cold -Ber months, I can’t help but have my go-to ramen place in mind. I’m not afraid to suggest Ramen Nagi every time my friends as me for a nice place to eat ramen for i know this restaurant won’t let me down.

The Black King (P410) is my favorite and I don’t mind ordering this on a date because I don’t mind getting jet black stains on my teeth as long as I get devour on my favorite Kuroo (but don’t forget to do mirror checks once in a while lol)

Fratini’s

Fratini’s is an Italian restaurant initially situated in Brunei but luckily, we Filipinos can have a taste of their food offerings for they already put up a branch here in Manila. Patty, a good friend of mine, was so excited for me upon knowing that I was invited to try Fratini’s for she visited this restaurant when she had her vacation in Brunei. image

The highlight of my day is pizza making (from scratch). We were each given a glob of dough and rolling pin. How I wish there’s a chef’s hat for adults for the ones available are only for kids.

image

We were taught how to properly knead the dough…

image

and to smoothen and flatten it so that our pizzas will be large enough.

image

The best thing about the pizza making is scooping it with this over-sized pizza spatula

imageand placing it inside the oven,

image

Imagine, for only P225, you get to have a whole new pizza experience.

image

You can choose between tomato sauce, cream, or both as for the base, and top it with any 3 ingredients of your choice. Better not skip the Pizza Favorita. Your kids will definitely enjoy this activity.

image

I highly appreciate the complimentary bread which is the Pane All Aglio/ Garlic Bread. Topping it with parmesan cheese and literally soaking it in balsalmic vinegar is how I like to eat this. I like how the bread acts as sponge as it tries to absorb the sourness from the vinegar. Truly yummy! The container of the balsamic vinegar and olive oil is very unique and interesting. How I wish I could take it home with me.

image

We had the best of everything the could offer for antipasto. At a very reasonable rate of P475, you get to taste 6 various appetizers namely Crispy Prawns, Tomato Bruschetta, Stuffed Mushroom, Mussels Gratin, Zucchini Salad and Caesar Salad. 

image

My personal favorites are the stuffed mushroom and tomato bruschetta.

image

The Supreme Pizza (P495) is having the best of both worlds. Half of it is tomato-based while the opposite half is cream based. It’s loaded with various ingredients like tuna, chicken breast, capsicum,shrimp, and many more.  By the way, I learned that Fratini’s doesn’t serve pork so that’s good news especially for those who are trying to shy away from fatty food.

imageSince Fratini’s doesn’t serve pork, you can still enjoy Mixed Grilled Meat (P1,445), which is a combination of  tenderloin, chicken breast and lamb. The black pepper sauce managed to penetrate the deep parts of the meat, thereby making it more tasty and flavorful. 

image

Did you notice anything in this picture? The Pasta Trio  (P755) resembles the flag of Italy. I love how visually appealing this dish is. The colors are light and pretty to look at. It’s a medley of  the minimally spicy but vegetable filled  Spaghetti Alla Pugliese, Fetuccine Carbonara, and everyone’s favorite which is Linguine al Fruiti di Mare, a pasta filled with various seafood. .

image

Most of my co-bloggers enjoyed this warm homemade chocolate pudding. The Classico del pudding di choco (P175) is an Italian version of chocolate lava. It’s very moist and hearty and can definitely brighten up one’s day.

image

However, my favorite is the Tiramisu Tradizionale  (P205) It’s basically layers of espresso tasting spong-like lady fingers topped with mascarpone cheese and dusted with cocoa. Two thumbs up for this one

The Verdict:

Service: 5/5

Taste: 3/5

Ambiance: 4/5

Cleanliness: 5/5

Price: 3/5

Over-all: 5/5

Fratini’s is located in SM Jazz, Bel-Air Makati City

Thank you Aldous (http://www.aldousatetheworld.blogspot.com) for inviting me in this food event. Big thanks to Mr. Jojo and Ms. Riam for the warm welcome and for guiding us as we go along our meal.

Suzu Kin

We used to live in San Antonio village so the sight of Suzu Kin is nothing unusual to me. Having a family who’s into Japanese cuisine tantamount to having frequent dinners in this no-frill Japanese restaurant. If you’re after authentic Japanese food minus the big price, then this is the place to visit/

image

The Tekka Maki (P161) is so filling. Imagine being served 12 pieces of  tuna and sushi rice rolled in nori. This can already stuff one hungry person.

Speakeasy

Speakeasy may be intimidating on the outside but have the courage to go inside so that you can have a firsthand experience on how good their food is. Place is not as big as Dillinger’s and the like but the food is really superb!

image

If you love gruyere  cheese, then you shouldn’t miss their Croque Madame (P315) for it is oozing with lots of cheese as seen in the picture. The perfect way to eat it is by breaking the yolk of your runny sunny side up egg and adding a dollop of cheese as you dig into this famous sandwich.

Matgalne

It was lunch time and we chanced upon a Korean Buffet for only P299. I’m very much interested to try this restaurant for I’ve read mixed reviews about that’s why I want to check it myself. Situated near the intersection of Kalayaan Avenue and Makati Avenue, this place is surely hard to miss. You’ll also be greeted by digital banners advertising their buffet. Is it worth every peso that I shelled out? Let me walk you through my experience.

Here’s your make your own salad for starters. I wish there’s more to their salad because it’s too plain and simple. There’s nothing worth raving about it so skipping it can also be a good idea.
