Eat Pinoy by Cabalen at SM Aura Premier

We were at SM Aura Premier two Saturdays ago. We were having a hard time choosing where to have dinner because of the many choices available for us, and we ended up dining at SM Aura’s high-end food court, Food on Four. And because we wanted rice for dinner, we opted for Eat Pinoy by Cabalen. Here, we ordered Kare-Kare, Embutidong Bangus and Sampelot.

Kare-Kare, Php250.00

Hubby’s choice was Kare-Kare. This oxtail stew in peanut sauce was already good on its own, but hubby still ate it with bagoong (shrimp paste) because he said he really liked the taste of Eat Pinoy’s bagoong. I, on the other hand, enjoyed the softness of the oxtail.

Embutidong Bangus, Php150.00

Because I’m a milkfish fanatic. I simply must try this Embutidong Bangus. As you can see, the price of Php150.00 was quite reasonable for the size of this fully loaded fish dish. Too much of it, however, could have a cloying effect, so we didn’t bother finishing the entire serving. It’s best paired with ketchup, by the way.

Sampelot, Php60.00

Sampelot or Ginataang Halo-Halo is hubby’s all-time favorite Pinoy dessert. This was by far the best food item we’ve ordered at Eat Pinoy that day. It had all the ingredients we like in Ginataang Halo-Halo, like sweet plantain, langka, sago (tapioca pearls) and bilo-bilo (sticky rice balls in coconut milk), plus the sweetness was just right.

Next time we visit Eat Pinoy again, we will try their Callos or Beef Kaldereta.

Valentine’s Day Dinner at Café de Bonifacio

I didn’t have time to prepare dinner last Saturday because I was busy helping my son review for his tests this week. Since it’s Valentine’s Day, hubby suggested dining out. We went to The Podium and had a quick family dinner at Café de Bonifacio. The last time we visited this restaurant was three years ago. I remember we liked their Herbed Oyster in Crispy Egg Wrapper with Special Chef Sauce. For our Valentine’s Day dinner, we had Sizzling Crispy Sisig and Binakol na Manok.

Sizzling Crispy Sisig, Php210.00

Hubby and I both love sisig served on a sizzling plate, and we also like crispy foods, so the combination of both was what prompted hubby to order this Sizzling Crispy Sisig. It was crunchy alright and full of flavor, too, with calamansi, chili peppers, egg and lots of onions. It was sinfully delicious! The serving was also fair enough for the price.

Binakol na Manok, Php280.00

This chicken dish was another hit. Binakol na Manok is stewed chicken with coconut meat and coconut water. It’s similar to Tinolang Manok, but it tastes a lot better. The addition of the soft coconut meat and water gave this tasty chicken dish subtle sweetness which I found enjoyable. They also used boneless chicken here for hassle-free eating, plus I had all the soup I wanted because look, the bowl is huge! I love it!

Red Iced Tea (Bottomless), Php75.00; Buko Lychee Shake, Php95.00; Ripe Mango Shake, Php95.00

Our son had Red Iced Tea, while hubby had Ripe Mango Shake. Since I didn’t hear any complaints from them, I suppose their drinks were okay. I had Buko Lychee Shake with no added sugar.

Our second visit to Café de Bonifacio was so much better than the first one. We had a hearty and satisfying dinner. We also got three free heart pastillas as their Valentine’s Day treat to their customers.
