Pasto

The odd thing about me is that once my cravings for a certain food gets satisfied, the more I still crave for that food. So what happens is that it becomes a never ending cycle. My tummy is currently experiencing the Italian pizza season, hence, we paid Pasto a late afternoon visit.

image

Pasto (P315) We ordered the pizza which bears the restaurant’s name because we know it’s the best among the best. It’s a feast of italian sausage, pepperoni, smoked ham, mushrooms, olives, as well as our favorite classic pizza toppings: tomatoes, onions and bell peppers. One can’t go wrong in ordering this because it’s meaty and delicioso!

image

Their Lasagna (P295) reminda me of moussaka because it has eggplant and ricotta cheese. It is topped with creamy bechamel and frshtomato sauce

image

We had Mango shake and raspberry soda for drinks and although I was the one who ordered the raspberry soda, I must say the fruit shake is a better choice. It’s totally refreshing and highly complements the Italian meal

The Verdict:

Price: 5/5

Taste: 4/5

Ambiance: 5/5

Service: 4/5

Cleanliness: 5/5

Over-all: 4.6/5

Pasto is located at 26th St. Fort Bonifacio Taguig City.

Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats

I highly recommend Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats  because I love almost  everything about this restaurant. I love their bootstrap steak sauce, artisan ice cream, side dishes, and their no-frill concept of steak.

image

I’m still trying to shy away from sodas but I can always make an exception with IBC 1957 Rootbeer Float (P170). The best thing about this is that you can pick the kind of ice cream you want on your float. The Madagascar Vanilla Bean is a safe bet but the Half-Baked Madagascar is a whole lot better because the cookie dough flavor matches the malty root beer taste.

Plato D’ Boracay

One should not leave the beautiful island of Boracay without having a seafood feast. One way to enjoy the freshest seafood is by going to D’ Talipa to buy your favorite ingredients and having it cooked at Plato D’ Boracay, the famous paluto restaurant according to my research. 

image

We bought a kilo of mussels and asked our serves to have it baked. I like the fact that they didn’t scrimp on cheese and garlic, thereby turning our favorite seafood into a wonderful treat.

image

People close to me know that I’m a huge oyster lover that’s why I ended up eating almost everything on this plate. The garlicky and buttery taste is very evident and makes this slimy seafood even more tasty.

image

If you want to be a little daring like us, go and have your shrimps cooked in lemon butter and cheese. It’s a bit odd since the sweet salty taste of cheese doesn’t really complement the acidic taste of lemon butter. Nevertheless, you’ll end up with an empty dish for you’ll soon realize that the weird combination somewhat worked.

image

Grilled squid is definitely a comfort food especially when cooked perfectly. My only regret is that I should have asked them to stuff it with tomatoes and onions. 

image

Buko juice is one of the “in” things in Boracay. Although costlier than the ones in Manila, you can’t resist ordering it since almost everyone in the restaurant is taking a sip of two from this fruit.

image

The Verdict:

Taste: 5/5

Price: 5/5

Ambiance: 3/5

Cleanliness: 3/5

Service: 5/5

Over-all: 4.2/5

Plato D’ Boracay is located at D’ Talipapa Boracay, Aklan

Don Vito Ristorante Italiano

Don Vito’s gelato boasts a good number of exciting flavors ranging from roasted almonds to Ferrero Rocher. What’s even more enticing is that you only need to pay 100 bucks for 2 scoops of your authentic Italian ice cream. Isn’t that an amazing offer?

image

The yogurt gelato is too tangy and tastes like legit Greek yogurt. The cheesecake flavor is on the sugary side and dulcified the acidic taste of my yogurt ice cream. What a great combination!

Jammers

What is wonderful about Jammers is it’s open 24 hours and it’s perfectly situated along Station 2. If you’re up for a cozy dining experience where you’ll enjoy the breezy weather and the cool view of the beach, then feel free to drop by this fast food.

image

Since we’re already in Boracay, I took advantage of ordering dishes with seafood since I’m assured that I’m getting only the fresh ones. The Shrimps on a bun (P195) is an excellent choice since it has veggies and breaded shrimps. Adding 95 bucks means turning what you ordered into a combo meal which comprises a very meager serving of soft drinks and a choice of either french fries or onion rings. The onion rings, although heavily coated, is not too oily and very fun to eat.

image

Fish Tacos (P215/ 3 pieces) is highly recommended to those who are health conscious. 3 pieces is already enough to get you stuffed and satisfied. It’s filled with breaded fish fillet, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, and large cheese strips.

The Verdict:

Taste: 3/5

Price: 3/5

Cleanliness: 4/5

Service: 3/5

Ambiance: 4/5

Over-all: 3.4/5

Jammers can be found in D’Mall Station 2, Boracay, Aklan
