Christmas Dinner with Arvic

It was hard to think of a place to spend our Christmas dinner at mainly because we've been to a lot of restaurants already. So it came as a surprise to us when we realized that we haven't eaten at Cyma yet. We knew that the Makati branch would be more or less jampacked because of holiday dinners so we opted to go to the Shangrila Mall branch instead. :)


The feel of the place was homey. No wonder there were tables of friends and families having their holiday get-togethers.

Off to the food.

Our Appetizer:


Spinach and Artichoke Fondue (395)
Blend of melting cheese, sliced sun-dried tomatoes and Feta. Served with warm pita bread and garlic bread

I wasn't really a big fan of the fondue. But I did love the pita bread that came with it. :)


The main course/s


My Order... Cyma Lamb Chops (P420)
Shoulder Loin Chop. Charbroiled served with rice stuffed pepper

I loved it! It was cooked just right. I wanted it done medium-well. It was tasty and tender. I got the rice stuffed pepper instead of the potatoes to go with it.


Arvic's Order... Cyma Fillet Mignon (P500)
Pan roasted, with rosemary, peppered feta cheese and lemon au jus, served with Greek roasted potatoes

Arvic loved his fillet mignon as well. It was cooked just right and was tasty and tender as well. Both courses went well with our drinks...


Okay.. I know I know.. Red wine is for red meat and white wine is for white meat. But I still went ahead and drank my white wine with my lamb chops. Mind you, it still paired up well. :P It was a nice and quiet dinner date with Arvic, just the way we wanted it to be. Thank you Cyma! :)

CARPE DIEM!

Baguio Trip - Forest House (Part 1)

To those who tried to guess (see previous entry), we were at Forest House, Baguio City!


The place wasn't really part of our itinerary (if we even had one!). We just passed by this place while making a U-Turn back to Nevada Square because we wanted to grab some drinks at a random bar there. The place caught are eyes because it looked so homey and there were a number of cars parked around it. When we tried to ask for a parking slot the guard told us that it was a full-house and that they were entertaining reserved guests only for that night. This made us more curious about the place. So when we got home, we all decided that we'll reserve a table for the next night "just in case" we'd like to try it out.

As we were entering the place, I definitely knew we made the right choice to try it out.


It was evident what the theme was for the place. All-out Christmas-y!:) We opted to have dinner at the Veranda area to savor the cold Baguio breeze. Dinner food selection followed.…

KKK: Food Revolution

It's been some kind of 'tradition' or nakasanayan na to hear mass with the family on Sundays then eat out. It may be dinner or lunch. Depends if Mama and Papa will go home to the province on Sunday evening or not. But lately, since everyone seems to be busy with something, may be work(Me), school(the brother) or reunions(the parents), we end up hearing (anticipated) mass on Saturdays then unplanned lunch or dinners on Sundays.

So one fine Sunday, we found ourselves having lunch in a new place (new to us) at the side of SM Cubao. It was 'KKK'.


Browsing through their menu we found lots of food selections. Most of course are Filipino dishes. The interior and most of the decorations had a native touch to it.




I especially liked this piece made of recycled wine bottles


And this picture or wallpaper that showed some of our national heroes. I think that's Jose Rizal on the left  side.


Off to the food.

Lumpiang Shanghai - This was really good. Especially the sauce.
