Aside from the delicious samplings, we were also treated to a hearty lunch courtesy of The Blackboard by Chef Michel. I wasn’t able to take pictures of all the food on buffet table, though.

Dining In at Burgoo

It’s been a while since we last visited Burgoo at Robinsons Galleria. Two Saturdays ago, hubby suggested we had dinner there. One thing we like about Burgoo, aside from their food, is the fact that they always have promos to entice first-time diners and to attract repeat customers. On this particular day, we got free Boneless Buffalo Chicken for an order of one main entrée.

Boneless Buffalo Chicken (Regular), Php325.00

This Boneless Buffalo Chicken is deep-fried chicken tenders seasoned with herbs and spices, tossed with spicy buffalo sauce and served with crunchy celery sticks and blue cheese dip. This makes for a great appetizer! What made us happier is that we got this for free!

Chicken, Shrimps and Ribs Feast, Php795.00

The name says it all. Chicken, Shrimps and Ribs Feast is a 3-in-1 combo consisting of grilled chicken, ribs, and shrimp skewers, served with grilled veggies and country fries. I love the shrimps! The ribs were tender and toothsome, too. The chicken was a bit dry but still tasty. We paired this platter with Burgoo’s Rice Pilaf which is a must-try, too.

We enjoyed our dinner at Burgoo, and we’ll be back for sure!

Dessert Sampler by Max’s Restaurant

Whenever we dine at Max’s Restaurant and fancy some desserts but couldn’t decide what to order, we always resort to having their Dessert Sampler. That’s because we get to try small servings of 4 different desserts which are enough to satisfy our sweet cravings.

Max’s Dessert Sampler, less than Php200.00

Max’s Dessert Sampler includes the following mini sweet treats:

Leche Flan (crème caramel) – sweet, rich and creamy dessert made from egg yolks and milk, topped with sweet caramel syrup.

Ube Crème Decadence – eggless custard with ube halaya (purple yam), topped with ube cake crumbs. It’s light, smooth and creamy.

Buco Pandan – salad made from fresh buko strips, green gulaman, cooked tapioca, sugar and pandan (for aroma). It’s refreshing and not too sweet.

Cream Caramel Brownie Ala Mode – brownie topped with vanilla ice cream. This is our son’s favorite among the four mini desserts.

Have you tried Max’s Dessert Sampler, too? Which mini sweet treat do you like the most?
