“This place is for giants!”
— Ryuko Seiko, ISTJ sister

So, Ryuko took me to Casa Verde because she heard it was a very good restaurant though the prices were high. It must be good since it’s really rare for an ISTJ to spend money for it, and she treated me too. So, yep, this is something she is willing to try and spend her money on.

There were a lot of people inside. We were actually in the waiting line but not for so long. Just enough for us to look at the menu. We chose the best Brian’s Ribs (best seller), a strawberry banana and a chocolate banana milkshake.

Here’s the menu (I think there’s another side but I forgot to take a picture of it)

image

Brian’s Ribs – P275

So it’s a humongous rib marinated with yummy sauce making it so tasty. A cup of rice and a mix of carrot and corn bits were also included to the dish. I would recommend if it weren’t super expensive. But with it’s large size, if you’re rich, why not? If I have the money, I’d eat it again.

Ryuko having problems with the ribs' size haha

Chocolate Banana and Strawberry Banana Milkshake – P118 each

image

This one… I likey ❤ 😉

It's very delicious and tasty. With its price, I guess if I buy Starbucks Venti for P180, then why won't I buy this milkshake again? I personally love fruit shakes better than any other drinks. So, if I can't eat Brian's Ribs for some circumstances because of its largeness, I'm still going to buy the milkshake haha!

Bonus: Milky Way Shake – P368

image

We didn’t buy it because of poor budget. But look at the size of those stolen shots! I bet its delicious! If we have the money, we’ll definitely try it. Probably with the family so that we can finish it. 🙂

Conclusion

image

I recommend it! I’d probably give it a 4.5 if it was more affordable. I don’t know if I’m just poor coz the food is really large (maybe it’s fair to have the price that high). Well, maybe I’m just poor. I’m still rating it 4 though…

Anyways, I’ll probably eat there again if there are special occasions and stuff.

Check out other menus! They have large fries and other meals 🙂

Oriental Pearl Restaurant Review

image

Hey guys!

Here’s the second time I’ve eaten in this restaurant but the first time reviewing it. Just to set the timing of the review, we ate on Mother’s Day which is also the day before the 2016 Presidential Elections. So, there were a lot of people but not that many that we had to fall in line before we get accommodated.

With that said, let’s start the review.

Ambiance

Well, it’s great to take the family too. It has this sossy but no to grande ambiance in it. The restaurant looks small, though when we ate on Mother’s Day, it can accommodate a lot of customers. It also has a second floor.

During Mother’s Day, I guess because of the busy shift, I noticed that some tables were clothed, and some were not. But I guess that’s passable. It would be nice if they were consistent though.

Let’s go on with the food review though (since I realized there isn’t much to say about non-food. Haha!). Disclaimer: The things below are mixed with my opinion.

Mixed Spinach w/Assorted S.F – P250

image

Well, it’s good. I mean, it’s not yucky or anything. Let’s just say it isn’t my type. I only ate 2 spoons of it. Some of my family finished it though.

Shrimps Rolled in Bacon – P360

image

This is one of our favorites, if not our favorite! It’s just super delicious and the sauce also mix perfectly with it. Not to mention, it looks very appetizing. Recommendable!

Yang Chow Fried Rice – P125

image

The advantage of this one is that it has a lot of shrimp. Other than that, it’s ok. I mean, Yang Chows are always delicious So is this one. Nothing special though.

Iced Tea – P65

image

It’s a normal iced tea to be expected in a semi-sossy restaurant

Braised Superior Lapulapu w/3 Tr – P430

image

It’s also cool. Some of my family liked it a lot. I still think the Shrimps in Bacon are better though.

Pork Spareribs w/ Salt & Pepper – P320

image

Yum yum yummmm! I liked this too. This is very delish! Recommendable!

Add-ons
Coke regular – P50
Plain rice – P30

Conclusion

I guess I don’t have much to say about this restaurant. The recommendable dishes for me are the Shrimps Rolled in Bacon and the Spareribs. Other than that, the other foods are okay. I really like the presentation of the food though. It looks very creative.

image

Now, what do I rate this….

image

It’s recommendable. And it’s  one of the restaurant our family goes to for a nice family meal. But, it’s so-so for me and not something I can eagerly recommend to somebody. Others might think otherwise though. Haha! It’s just me.

Silantro Fil-Mex Cantina Review

Hello!

This is my first Restaurant Blog, so it might not be what you expect. Buuuut I’m gonna try making a nice review about the restaurant we just ate in today. Please enjoy 🙂

SILANTRO FIL-MEX CANTINA

Me and my family in Silantro

So today, me and my family decided to have our lunch in Silantro. It’s located in Kapitolyo, Pasig City. When we got there, surprisingly, it was fully booked! And more people are even coming in to eat. The place is not fancy looking, it even looks small. But no doubt, people go there to eat 🙂

Ok, so here’s what we ordered:

Beef Nachos – P180

It’s a great appetizer! The sauces are great too. I just don’t know what they are. (But maybe you do). It’s also great for the whole group to share. We’re 5 in the family and it’s just right.

Silantros Quesadillas – P160

12894494_1219476628079654_320126611_o

Silantros Quesadillas

This is one of my favorites. I’m not sure if the sauces are also for the fries, but the white sauce matches them. Anyways, that cheesy thingy (I guess they’re the Quesadillas?) is chicken and it tastes super yummy. It tastes like lasagna/baked mac, but tastier in its own way. Anyways, this or the next one is my favorite. ❤

Silantro’s Porkribs – P290

12903547_1219473408079976_1804203645_o

Silantro’s Porkribs

Yep, as I said, either these Porkribs or the previous one is my favorite. Well, I guess coz its porkribs, they’re always tasty haha. And this one is tasty too! We had this dish as our main course with the Paella below. But now that I think about it, it’s tasty but not anything that struck me as something I would remember from this restaurant. So fine, I’ll just put it as my second favorite, next to the Quesadillas which is something I have never had before. But again, these Porkribs are tasty ❤

Silantro’s Paella Pajit – P250

12915009_1219473381413312_1060788245_o

Silantro’s Paella Pajit

Hmmm, well it looks tasty. Presentation is lovely. It has a lot of various ingredients around it that it looks really appetizing. But, I’m going to put this dish as my least favorite. I’m not sure if I’m just not used to the taste of Mexican dishes, but it didn’t work for me. It was had a lot of taste, that I think it’s too much for me. Like, I tried to eat three crumbs of rice just to check how “tasty” it is? It did have too much taste. It had a lot of sauce. But again, maybe I’m just not used to Mexican dishes ^_^”

Pitcher Iced Tea – P200

12919332_1219473411413309_75754907_o

Pitcher Iced Tea

It’s delicious. It’s not super strong. I like how it tastes. The price is shocking though. It’s more expensive than the other meals that we ordered lol. If you can’t afford the pitcher, you can always go for softdrink in can. They have Pepsi there for P40 :))

Overall, I’d rate the restaurant…

3.5-star.png

It’s nice but it’s not that memorable. It’s delicious and accommodating, but it could use some improvements (maybe with the size of the restaurant also). I’d eat there again, but that is if anyone invites me there. For an average girl like me, the quantity of the meals is kinda pricey though. I guess they’re for someone richer than me. lol
