Found a 3-week old diner by accident, and their takoyaki is soooo oishii! Check out Tokyo Style – Marikina! They also have ramen and rice meals. They are located at Purple Street, Concepcion Dos, Marikina.
p.s. mapanlinang slight, though: I was expecting a whole baby octopus haha pero more of tentacles lang, but still good!!! Or baka pala sa sobrang sarap, di ko napansin kung buo ba haha emshere! 😋🐙

Did you know that March 20 is also the International Day of Happiness? And that’s exactly what I felt today! I taught 4 students in the morning, successfully had my tax status changed (yey, no more monthly business tax), tried out a new restaurant with my best friends, and enjoyed our monthly nail pampering session. Moreover I will still teach some of my student gems tonight. Lastly, another reason for me to be happy is that I am blessed to have another birthday! Thank you for all the greetings!

This Sundate’s dinner: daging kacau doreng (beef), ayam goreng (chicken), nyonya laksa, iced teh tarik & teh o. Another awesome Marikina discovery: Goreng Goreng! Deliciously affordable Indonesian/Malaysian/Singaporean dishes – all these for P640. Can’t wait to bring my besties here!!! ❤

Clingy friends decided to visit Marikina today, and we had a blast! We first had a feast at Mandi’s Grill Grub, then at Capriserrie Bakeshop and Café for dessert/coffee/tea. Our job isn’t perfect, but this support group makes it more bearable and fun! Looking forward to our next gathering! 🙂

“KC, can we finish this?”
Went on a BIR errand with one of my besties, and naturally, we were starving after! Decided to try Spiced Spatula, and we spent less than P500 on these, including drinks and some ice cream! So, Nikki, can we finish this??? (yes, we did!!!)

Happy Easter, happy eaters! Opted for a Chinese lunch with my loves as we tried Hungry Panda Food House Marikina. On the table: Yang Chow fried rice, buttered chicken, beef broccoli flower, and lechon kawali. My favorite’s the chicken, which looked dry, but was actually quite flavorful and had a nice crunch. I initially thought the beef broccoli was salty, but it got better as we munched on. The lechon kawali’s okay, but dry. We finished the rice! 3 hungry pandas, eh? We also loved their chili oil!!! I usually judge a Chinese restaurant by their chili oil, so good job, Hungry Panda! Great for groups! ^^

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!!!

You know it’s love when your favorite neighborhood restaurant serves you your favorite seafood even though you ordered something else. Thank you, Mandi’s Grill Grub!
