another food tripping weekend

last weekend...we had our retreat...and fortunately - or unfortunately whichever the case may be...we did not get to "retreat from eating food" wahaha....the food was a-ok at Don Bosco Batulao...and I really savored every meal served to us...


I thought that the preceeding week will finally let me rest from all the eating...


oops! I spoke too soon...


I spent another food-filled weekend...first in Tagaytay where we had lunch last Friday at Leslie's... my first time...and too bad because of the rain...wasn't able to see the view from the resto...and the Bulalo and Sisig were not that hot...haha because of the cold wind...and here I thought we were in an airconditioned place haha




Leslie's Sisig and their famous Bulalo


Later that day we spent our time eating in Balay Indang in Indang Cavite...where we were served sit-down meals for dinner, breakfast, morning snack (which we did not partake in anymore coz we were so full and lazy to getup from our sleep) and lunch...



Wasn't able to ask the names of the food served to us though...so was not able to verify whether the burger I ate that dinner was meat..or veggie meat! wahaha...We had salad...and string beans...and cheesticks! oops lumpiang sariwa na mukhang cheesticks sa payat...sort of rellenong fish and baby back ribs...all that for dinner..hanep! the squash soup was good too...and most of had asked for seconds and thirds of that...



that's the cheesesticks! not!...it's lumpiang sariwa na maliit haha

yum! baby back ribs


that is NOT my plate haha


with my dinner buddies


Breakfast was served early the next day...and after strolling around the compound and finally waking up my companions... we headed off to Balay (the mess hall) and had breakfast of danggit...adobo...fried rice...suman na langka at coca ang laman...and eggs (had to request that mine be scrambled though)...and freshly squeezed dalandan juice...ang sarap nya ha! that we even asked if we can order the juice and bring home some haha...too bad di pde...and had a choice of hot choco or freshly brewed coffee to start off our breakfast...


my breakfast companions


When we went back to our quarters...we were too lazy to get up in 2 hours for our am snacks haha...and just skipped the arroz caldo and gulaman...and just had our lunch or last meal at Balay Indang...



they got their share before I can take this shot


i think these are salad garnishes


I liked our lunch meal best of all...we dined in the extension area of the dining room...quite isolated...and was able to ask the waitstaff for the names of the food haha...and so we had the usual salad...and some garnishes...and nope! I did not touch that haha...embutido...and something like lechon manok though ladled with giniling and sauce of some sort haha...and spaghetti - sardines it seems...and baked fish fillet - this i liked best!...and yellow rice - I think it's atsuete! and this egg and veggies type of omelet with an Asian sounding name that rhymes with foo yung haha


red-sauced spaghetti and yellow flavored rice

baked fish fillet



egg and veggies



lechon manok with giniling haha


And to think we didn't get to have our am snacks...we still had enough energy and room in our stomachs for dinner when we finally reached South...


We were supposed to have dinner at this resto - Kanin Club - recommended by MC - at the Northgate Cyberzone near Alabang Town Center...so at least when we reach Alabang we would have been hungry enough to eat again...


But because of the weather and the traffic...and we were not so pressed for time anyway haha...we ended up eating at the Kanin Club's branch in Paseo de Sta Rosa, Greenfield City, Sta. Rosa...


After approx an hour of going around the place...it was a mini-Ayala-Glorietta-look-alike-mall...we headed off and started our eating adventure in Kanin Club


gutom na si Sir Bob


tokwa't baboy as appetizer



Crispy Binagoongan


Not for the weak hearts...we had a cholesterol filled fare of...kanin of course...tokwa't baboy...sinigang sa miso...crispy binagoongan and crispy dinuguan - their recommended dishes!...and wow! ang sarap nga!...will surely look for Kanin Club next time we eat near ATC...


Crispy Dinuguan


And our food tripping did not end there...we still had room for a late night dessert haha...


We headed off for home...finally!...and ended up in BF ParaƱaque - a little near home to me, MC and Sir Bob...though Za had to drive home yet to QC - and scoured the village to look for this shop that sells Sebastian's Ice Cream...and settled to have coffee in this new place near Tahanan Village - Perk Avenue...play on words? ... Sir Bob was the one looking for something cold to eat - ice cream - and it was raining!...and we ordered our coffee and tea at the Perk...I ordered and tried out their hazelnut coffee...MC had tea while Sir Bob and Za had their own coffee...



and wow! ang sarap nung Sebastian's Ice Cream...we had Macadamia Nut flavored ice cream...and whoa! ang mahal rin ng presyo...250pesos a pint haha...and I think it is not that well commercialized yet and can be had by orders...


Za is trying to read the contact info on the tub



And since that weekend...I haven't checked the weighing scale yet...


I think am overweight na talaga Doc! haha


I know I promised myself...that after this food trippin adventure weekend...


I will go on a diet! wahaha


Yeah right...
