2017 Project 365, Day 102: Seafood Paella

Photo #102: April 12

Holy Week is usually a time for reflection, and at Mandi’s Grill Grub, they started thinking about their version of seafood paella! Their trials ended up in our tummies: regular and negra. I can’t wait for Mandi’s to include them in their menu!!!

2017 Project 365, Day 56: Shrimps and Mushrooms!

Photo #56: February 25

Mandi’s Grill Grub really knows my weakness! No matter how busy I am with work, I will find time for SHRIMPS! These are bathed in hoisin sauce and lots of chopped chili, along with three kinds of mushrooms (shitake, black fungus, and another). Aaaaand the garlic rice that came with it? Ahhh divine! A perfect meal on this 13-hour work day!

2017 Project 365, Day 48: Meatslut Lilac Marikina

Photo #48: February 17

Had an impromptu dinner with Richard Allan Co / TFC at Meatslut along Lilac. The food was…meh. The rib short plate’s char overpowered whatever seasoning they used, if any. All the sides we ordered weren’t served hot! The spinach gratin was salty, while the supposedly “umami corn” turned out to be just buttered corn. The two kinds of potato side dishes were okay, but not the best. Overpriced mediocre food, never eating here again. Well, okay, maybe we should have ordered their steaks? We’ll see. Anyway, thanks for the catch-up, Rich! :-*
