Sisig Society – Eastwood City

Want to have your own sisig creation? Visit Sisig Society in Eastwood!

image

You can have your sisig with rice, pasta, nachos, or tacos. You can have the classic pork sisig, go healthy with chicken, or go unusual with seafood. There are also toppings like bacon and cheese.

image

Miko decided to go classic with Pork Sisig with Rice and Egg and I had a Pork Sisig Taco.

You can click on the menu above to see the items and prices clearly.

image

The pork sisig wasn’t Kapampangan-style like what he prefers, but he still enjoyed it because it’s well-seasoned and crunchy. Think Gerry’s Grill x 3.

image

I liked the taco, but was a wee disappointed because I thought it would have a Mexican flair, but it’s okay because the sauce was tangy and went well with the meat.

image

My favorite part of our Sisig Society visit though was their wall. O di ba, saktong-sakto sa amin? Hihihi.

image

Sisig Society serves beer. Can’t go wrong with the sisig-SML combo, yeah? Yeah.

Café Estero – My Kind of Carinderia!

Carinderia na may angus corned beefsilog, German franksilog, gindarasilog, at French toast?

image

Parang joke, noh? But it’s true! There’s this eatery in Maliksi St, near Kamias that has all those and more. Miko calls it Boyong’s, I guess because that’s the old name in its old location. I checked their tarp and it says Café Estero.

image

Grabe. Wala ako masabi sa dami ng choices nila. They have 45 silogs in all! At silogs pa lang ‘yan ha. Meron pa! They have 28 kinds of sandwiches, including yema sandwich and French toast. Ang lakas maka-sosyal. :p

image

May noodles pa and pica-pica! Meron pang ice cream bar na parang Magnum. :D

image

Café Estero has an assortment of goodies for those addicted to candies, chocolates, and other small sweet stuff. Nakakatuwa lahat talaga may label.

image

MAY FRUITELLA PA PALA?

image

And oh lordy, they have two of my childhood favorites– belekoy and tira-tira!!! Too bad I was suffering from a bad case of cough and sniffles when we went there so I couldn’t eat those. :(

image

But yaaaay…. food! We got sisigsilog, Spanish sardinessilog, and baconsilog.

image

Here’s Miko putting some Lady’s Choice Mayo on his sisig. Just a funfact about us, lagi akong may baon na mayo kasi favorite ni Foodie ang mayo. He likes it with sisig, bacon, hotdog, and kung ano mang meat dish ang maisipan niya na bagay sa mayo. Hehe.

image

The sisig was done Kapampangan-style, except it didn’t have that much onions and liver. It’s still yummier than I expected it to be.

I was surprised to get a bowl of sardines, 5-6 pieces I think. I was thinking it will just be 2 or 3 pieces. And it’s not straight out of the can and served. It was sautéed in garlic and onions. Yummmmm!

image

The bacon isn’t the best bacon there is, but hello, it’s still bacon. And for a bill of around 300php, magreklamo pa ba ako? That’s including drinks- Coke and Royal. Panalo! I recommend this place to all you foodies, except to those who are maarte. Kasi hardcore carinderia talaga itsura nito, daanan pa ng maraming sakasakyan. May mga dogs pa na nagjejerjer malapit sa amin. Mwehehehe!

image

I don’t think they sell beer or other alcoholic beverages. Had our “two bottles” in Naranghita with his barkada instead. It was fun drinking and listening to impromptu jams.

image

Busog sa mura at masarap na chibog tapos “two bottles” after? Most def my kind of Friday night. :D

Kabab Korner – Diliman, Quezon City

This is where Miko usually gets sustenance after his hours in the gym. Grilled naman daw kasi or roasted kaya healthy. Daw. I made pa-cute until he invited me to eat there so that I can also have a taste of his post-workout meals.

Convo papasok ng Kabab Korner–

Miko: Kilala na ako ng mga waiters diyan. Magugulat sila may kasama ako ngayon. Hehehe.

Me: Hindi ka na matakaw na loner ngayon. Matakaw ka na lang!

image

Kabab Korner is in Matalino St., Diliman. The resto is spacious. They serve alcoholic drinks. And they have free wi-fi. Besides the classics (kabab, keema, biryani, shawarma), they also have a variety of pizzas, salads, and burgers.

For that night, we had yogurt shakes. Plain (75php) for me and mango (90php) for him. There’s also banana and strawberry. The shakes were good, not as sweet as the ones from Mister Kabab.

image

I had the Special Kabab Plate (180php) which has a stick of beef chelo kabab and chicken kabab, a small salad, grilled tomato, and buttered rice. The chicken was nicely cooked, while the beef was undercooked. Both were not as tasty as I expected them to be. It was easily remedied by their garlic yogurt and chili garlic yogurt sauces.

image

I liked Miko’s food better. He had the Mediterranean Chicken Plate with salad and rice and gravy na pagkadami-dami, akala niya dati soup. :p The chicken was nicely seasoned and roasted to perfection. Full of flavor and juicy. <3

image

Para mas healthy ang feel, we had a small cup of salad. We wanted salmon cubes in our salad, but it wasn’t available, so we settled for cheddar cheese and egg tossed in lettuce, cherry tomatoes, olives, and a special vinaigrette.

image

I’ll stick with chicken and maybe try their pizza the next time we go there.

Vikings Luxury Buffet – SM Jazz, Makati

Being the big eaters that we are, we gave Vikings SM Jazz a visit. We chose this branch because it’s near my place and because people say the ambience is as good as Niu by Vikings in SM Aura Premier.

image

I did not call to reserve a table, thinking we won’t have any troubles getting one because we’d be there as early as 6pm and SM Jazz doesn’t really get much foot traffic. Boy, was I wrong. We waited for almost 45 minutes to be seated. Hence, picture muna. :p

image

Good thing we had merienda at Purple Oven first before going to Vikings so hindi pa ako hangry (hungry + angry) when we were waiting. Also, I doubt I could get pissed as I expected to eat tons on food from the many, many choices of their reasonably priced buffet. (Click on image below to see the rates.)

image

The first place we visited was the carving station. Meat overload! They have spicy lechon belly, lamb chops, roast beef, turkey leg to name a few.

image

The lamb chops was really good, but I didn’t like the mint jelly so much.

image

It’s near the Italian Corner where you can get pizza, pasta,

image

and other Italian faves, like this seafood dish.

image

I wasn’t in the mood to eat grilled meat that night,

image

but they have my childhood favorite– samaral! used to eat this fish a lot whenever we’d go to Pangasinan to visit my grandparents.

image

I had the grilled samaral with they soy-vinegar-chili sauce, but I prefer it with grated green mango with bagoong. Ayayayay!

image

I didn’t get anything from the Hongkong Noodle and

image

Hot Pot station even if the colorful fresh ingredients were tempting,

image

because I was saving a large portion of my tummy space for sushi and sashimi!!! I two had plates filled with salmon and tuna sashimi and a variety of sushi.

image

Also had a few pieces of shrimp and vegetable tempura.

image

Here’s Miko with his odd combo (that he seemed to really enjoy)– salmon sashimi and Milo Freeze. Yes. They have Milo Freeze. They also have a coffee station, a milk tea station, a soda station, and even a beer station! And yes, that is already inclusive of the 888php weekend dinner buffet price.

image

They also have several kinds of iced teas and juices to choose from.

image

Watermelon the best! :D

image

Other stations that I visited were the salad station. Loved the choices of cheese and greens. May nuts pa.

image

Panalo ‘yung potato and egg salad. Gagayahin ko ito sa bahay.

image

Visited their appetizer station kinda late. I was already full, but I still managed to get deviled eggs and ceviche shots.

image

 The bread station has good ciabatta.

image

I did not go gaga over the Korean, Chinese, and Filipino stations. I think I only got crispy spicy salmon skin from Korean, three-cups chicken, long-life noodles, hochailai soup (not sure if this is the name o sounds like lang) from Chinese, and lamb caldereta from Filipino.

image

After 5 plates of some meat, dozens of sashimi, and lots of veggies, it was time for dessert.

image

I got little cheesecakes, cherry crepe with caramel, and frozen brazo de mercedes. They have the best dessert spread among all buffets of similar rates.

image

Well, not just desserts. They have the best dishes among all buffets in that price range. Only problem was the buffet is so huge, it’s overwhelming. Nakaka-panic kung paano ko kakainin lahat! :p #takawproblems

Didi’s Pizza – Angeles, Pampanga

We were traveling to Limay, Bataan last Holy Week break when we thought of having lunch at Aling Lucing’s Sisig in Angeles first, but it was closed (it was Good Friday then) so Miko suggested we go to the place with the BEST PIZZA IN THE WORLD.

Me, LA, and Carlo: Ows? Best pizza in the world talaga?

Miko: In MY world!

:p

image

Didi’s Pizza is along MacArthur Highway in Balibago, Angeles City, Pampanga. It’s one of the more popular restos in that area, not only for its home style square pizzas, but for its tacos, burgers, and popular Pinoy dishes as well.

We had a large Combination Pizza. It has mushrooms, salami, sausage, pepperoni, and lots of cheese. I can’t really say it’s the best pizza in the world, but it was definitely enjoyable, especially spiked with hot sauce. :D

image

We also had Lumpiang Shanghai, which was only 84php. Pretty cheap considering it had a lot of filling and tasted great.

image

The Sizzling Sisig (136php) was truly Kapampangan-style. Flavorful porky goodness with liver and lots of onions. Kahit hindi na timplahan ng kalamansi at toyo, perfect na.

image

Total bill (including 4 cups of garlic rice, juice, and soda) was less than a thousand. You might want to check out Didi’s if you’ve already grown tired of commercial pizza and Aling Lucing’s sisig.
