My Pho Hoa Dinner Plate

While sorting through my food photos, I came across this one, my dinner plate from Vietnamese noodle house Pho Hoa, which was taken late afternoon of March, 2016. This was what I had for dinner, Com Thit Nuong Cha Gio, one of their bestsellers.

Com Thit Nuong Cha Gio, Php295.00

Com Thit Nuong Cha Gio is simply grilled pork with fried spring rolls and rice. The grilled pork bits are similar to our pork liempo, except that this consisted of lean meat only. The meat is succulent, and the dipping sauce (most probably Vietnamese dipping fish sauce) makes it more appetizing and palatable. I don’t exactly remember how the spring rolls tasted like, but I do remember enjoying my meal. And that hefty serving of rice made me giddier! Lol!

Get Greenwich Double Double Pizzas for Only Php299!

Last Sunday before watching the animated film Sing at Robinsons Movieworld, we went to Greenwich first to have our late afternoon snack a.k.a. early dinner. We availed their Double Double Pizzas promo, that’s for me and hubby, and we bought our son the pizza flavor that he likes, 7-Cheese Overload.

Double Double Pizzas (Meat & Veggies Special and Hawaiian Special), Php299.00

For only Php299.00, we already have two double-sized thick crust pizza. However, the pizza flavors for the Double Double Pizzas promo are limited only to the Meat & Veggies Special and Hawaiian Special. That’s really no problem for us because I love Hawaiian Special, while hubby had the Meat & Veggies Special mostly to himself. I said “mostly” because I got one slice just to find out what it tastes like. Well, that was just fair because he also got a slice from mine. Lol! (Note: While this promo is exclusively available for take-out, the Greenwich staff allowed us to have this for dine-in.)

7-Cheese Overload (thick crust, solo), Php99.00

Our son Justin doesn’t really want toppings on his pizza. He wants it clean and with lots of cheese, so he chose the 7–Cheese Overload. This is loaded with 7 different types of cheese: mozzarella, cheddar, Edam, parmesan, cream cheese, bleu cheese and special cheese. He loved it, and he would have wanted to order again had we not told him that we were still buying popcorn for the movie.

It was money well spent at Greenwich because we all enjoyed our food. All in all, we spent a little less than Php500 for the three pizzas and a pitcher of iced tea. Cheap, right?

Tender Bob’s at Greenhills Promenade

We intended to do some shopping at Greenhills, but because we left home late, we ended up just having dinner at Tender Bob’s in Promenade. While browsing through their menu, we were reminded of TGI Friday’s. Both restaurants offer American cuisine.

Being first-timers here, we didn’t really know what to order, so we enlisted the help of our food attendant. We wanted something to pair with our Angus Sisig, and we were thinking of Salpicao. Tender Bob’s serves three types of Salpicao (U.S. Beef, Chicken and Salmon), and she suggested Salmon Salpicao. Our son, on the other hand, opted to have Chicken Tenders.

Angus Sisig, Php359.00

The Angus Sisig is a lovely attempt at Americanizing Pinoy sisig. Instead of pig’s head and liver, this makes use of U.S. Black Angus Beef belly. It also has onions, jalapeño and aioli (instead of the usual mayonnaise). The beef bits were tender and tasted good, even without the aioli. Hubby and I liked this a lot, but I think I ate more of this (and more rice) than him. Lol!

Salmon Salpicao, Php529.00

This Salmon Salpicao was the most expensive dish on our table, but we weren’t sold on it. The salmon was firm and soft and tasted fresh, but the dish itself was a bit bland. More seasonings, please!

Chicken Tenders, Php319.00

Our 10-year-old son enjoyed his crunchy-outside but tender-inside Chicken Tenders which he said was tasty. It came with fries and honey mustard sauce.

Cookies & Cream Sundae, Php199.00

After enjoying his Chicken Tenders, Justin was in the mood for dessert. He asked for Cookies & Cream Sundae which has Oreos, Stik-O, cashew nuts, vanilla ice cream and chocolate ice cream, drizzled with chocolate syrup and topped with whipped cream and cherry. Our son loves anything with chocolates, so this was okay for him.

Except for the slightly bland Salmon Salpicao at Tender Bob’s, everything else was good.
