Conti's Pastry Shop & Restaurant

With eagerness and excitement, together with my family, we went to Conti's Greenhills branch. Actually we were a bit stunned with the number of people dining there for a weeknight it's almost full house. 
Chicken Barbecue (Php 205)
Chicken barbecue is tender chicken seasoned with mildly sweet barbecue sauce. It's simple to eat and it goes perfect with java rice.

Chicken Ballotine (Php 250)
It is marinated boneless chicken rolled and deep fried, then sliced thinly top with cream sauce. Served with buttered corn and cubed carrots. I find this dish good and serving it fair for the price.

Roast Beef in Mushroom Sauce (Php 295)
Slices of beef in mushroom sauce, served with buttered vegetables and mashed potato or garlic rice.

Brown's Gourmet Chicken: Home of the Chicken Roasters

Searching high and low for an affordable Roasted Chicken (or something like it) in Greenhills Town Center brought us to Brown's Gourmet ChickenNow this is the beginning of something great. Before anything else, I will be telling you this early... It does not only LOOKS GOOD, It TASTES GOOD! It’s best to try it out for yourself.

Brown's Famous Chicken (Php 140)

Brown's Famous Chicken was really mouthwatering. It was flavorful and everything added in it excited our taste buds. I almost forgot to take a picture and instantly attacked the plate of delicious and juicy chicken.

Gourmet Tapa (Php 85)
 Gourmet Tapa is nicely cooked in pieces of just the right size. It's the sweet kind of variety. It makes you want more rice, if you ask me.  If you hadn't had breakfast and just about to eat your lunch, the price tag is justified.

Gavino's Donuts, Coffee and Milk Tea at Greenhills Town Center

After dinner last night we finally had the chance to visit the Gavino's DonutsAccording to research, this shaped is called "Pon de Ring" which came from Japan. 

The owners, Michelle and Andrew Que, got hooked on pon de ring donuts on their annual visits to Taiwan and decided to make them available here in the Philippines.  “We used to bring them home but they turned soggy and were not as good as they were in Taiwan.” They started making their own pon de rings and selling them at Mercato Centrale in December. “We wanted to see if there was a market for these chewy donuts in the Philippines,” said Andrew. They named their brand Gavino’s Donuts after their son who was named after Andrew’s father Gary and grandfather Vicente. (Source

My SerendipiTea

Located at the ground floor of Cocoon Boutique Hotel at Scout Tobias corner Scout Rallos in Quezon City, we saw My SerendipiTea accidentally when we are looking for  Rub Ribs & BBQ with my friend. So we decided to try My SerendipiTea after our big lunch.

I was able to enjoy their Wintermelon Milk Tea which is their Top three (3) at around Php 75 for the medium-sized cup. Quite affordable for a tea shop with free wi-fi access so you can drink milk tea the whole day and go online at the same time. Plus, they are open until 2 a.m.!

This tea shop one does not enjoy the wide array of great tasting drinks, but you can also  enjoy the warm and friendly environment. The shop’s interior is screaming of a colorful decor combination.

Affordable, healthy and yummy, I do see all the reasons why tea shops continue to grow like mushrooms around the metro; and as long as they offer their distinct flavors I’m very happy with that. And the milk tea frenzy will continue to live on, and as long as there is one around the corner, yours truly will surely be the first ones to try it. Make milk teas your one daily habit.

RUB Ribs & BBQ

Went to Rub in Tomas Morato just recently to try their BBQ Ribs. I saw this on facebook, and we haven't heard about it before which made it more exciting because it would the first time to actually check out the place.

Smoked Pork Belly (Php 200)
The plate of pork belly was really huge, it was soft and really tender. And the taste was really good and wasn't overcooked. The RUB's spiced fried rice was also a perfect combination for this.

Rub Beef (Php 290)
As expected, the beef was so tender and full of flavor, added with a healthy buttered vegetables. My friend also agreed. At times, the thick meat needs more of the barbeque sauce so don't hesitate to ask for extra sauce on the side.

Corn Chowder (Php 100)
Tasted similar to sopas, the soup is milky but watery. Would have liked it to be creamier/thicker though. A there was lot of potatoes more than corn and vegetables. Taste pretty good when combine to rice, but as soup, i'm afraid not.

Additional Barbeque Sauce (Php 20)


A two story establishment that has roughly 6 tables only. The place was inspired by American diners wherein you see pictures about life and music. Famous artists/singers that includes Beatles, Bob Marley and many more.

This place is beginning to be popular even if the place is really small. I think it's the good food that they serve made the customers come back more.

I'm feeling very generous, don't forget to join my ongoing JAMBA JUICE GIVEAWAY!
