|Pinoy dining the classy way...|
In our case, this week's feature was actually an unplanned one....
We were supposed to march down to Maginhawa street and check out the food finds however, we got stranded for more than an hour in a gas station due to the pouring rain so we decided to go somewhere else.
|the fancy menu|
As we browsed through the menu, we got really curious with all the descriptions like the origins and how they were prepared. They offer various Filipino traditional favorites from different regions prepared the traditional way... hmmmmm interesting!
|Batangas Adobo ala Adarna|
|the plating was nice!|
|meat very tender|
|i like Frank's perspective|
At least now we know how original abodo tastes like. This dish was an interesting topic to talk about. A good conversation with someone you feel comfortable with makes the food more tasty I believe. Once you educate yourself with what you are experiencing, you begin to appreciate it all the more. This dish was worth the try! Oh and before I forget, it was plated really neat and enticing. I love the serving plate!
|aha! caught in the act!!!|
Kesong Puti and Langka Fry (85php) - It looked divine! Imagine your typical turon with a chunk of Kesong Puti (local cheese from goat/cow's milk) wrapped in langka drizzled with fruity syrup (langka/mango?). The sweetness of the langka and syrup plus the creamy subtle taste of the cheese was like..wow!!! It'll surely make you smile! hehehhee I never thought Frank would order it... I thought he disliked cheese but it seems Mich, Badeth and I have influenced him a lot. hihihihi He ate one whole piece... smiled and said, "Gusto ko to!" phew! I was relieved! I'm convinced that he's more hard to please than I am 'coz he knows what he wants. I believe he's the real critique!
|ooooh lah lah|
|our trademark forks made it even more interesting|
|we liked the syrup a lot|
|here's to a great team!|
I'm very proud of our artworks this week! It was him who took most of the shots while I played supporting role by sharing suggestions and assisting him with the light. I enjoy supporting and seeing him improve. Makes me happy when he smiles. It sure is nice to see our progress week by week.It was indeed a good move to try strobist photography. It's time to push ourselves further! Our works are our immortality. We take pride in our work yet we opt to keep a low profile. We are very thankful for the praises we get... it inspires us to do better. I may say, it's not just about the photos itself but the way on how we work together which brings life to our subjects! It's where the magic is!
|feels like dinner at home|
|helping out with our set-up|
|i'd like to one day cook my adobo for him|
respect! I won't be calling it as "arguing" but more of a healthy exchange of opinions. A healthy dose of this makes conversations interesting...just imagine if you agreed on everything.... that would be so boring right?
|time flies when you're in good company|
|cheers to us!|
I believe this week's experience was all about Authentic Filipino Food Appreciation which is very very educational. We would like to commend chef Giney Villar and the whole staff for keeping our traditions very much alive!! We enjoyed the whole experience! The service was outstanding as well! I think they were well trained and very polite!
Everything authentic! hmmmm Authentic place, authentic food shared with an authentic person....... what more can you ask for? <3
