I know I owe you the last part of my Sagada experience, but for some reason, I’m feeling a little burned out about that. I promise I will get back to that, but for now I want to squeeze in a couple of other things first just to change things up and hopefully get myself back on track. I haven’t written a restaurant review in a while, so I’ll start with that.
The only reason why we came here was the place we originally wanted to try was packed and we wanted to try something new. My sister was the one who suggested Papi Chulo’s, a place we were constantly passing to get somewhere else.

Our dinner here a few months ago came about as an effort to further explore the untapped potential of the BF Parañaque food scene. So many restaurants were popping up left and right, and it was getting harder and harder to keep up. Luckily, we had the appetites to at least put a dent in the hundreds of restaurants currently open in the area, so don’t feel too sorry for us.

Let’s get this out of the way first: Chowking, a fastfood chain offering Chinese dishes, isn’t exactly known for having the nicest ambiance. More often than not, their branches tend to squeeze in as many tables as they can to accommodate their ever-burgeoning crowd who flock the chain for their good prices and decent selection. It’s not really my go-to for quick food (I’m more of a McDonald’s girl), partly because of the ambiance. But can I say, I think I just found the best-looking Chowking branch I’ve ever visited.

(It seems I’ve fallen into old habits again; I had to sweep away cobwebs to click on “Add New Post.” I’ve got a lot of stuff to write about in the coming weeks, so hopefully you don’t decide to abandon me by then.)
We (meaning my sister, her husband, and I) have always noticed Bypass Burger when we drive around BF Parañaque looking for a place to dine in. We never really considered eating there, until I saw pictures of seemingly glorious food while checking my Instagram, at which point I convinced them to give it a shot last night.

Another day, another invite from Zomato Philippines to try out a new restaurant. This time it’s a bar called Pablo’s Pub & Restaurant, and to be honest, I almost didn’t go. Sometimes I feel like I’m too old for places like this, but with a menu promising that it’s more than just a place where poor judgement is born of good alcohol and bad company, I headed for The Forum at Bonifacio Global City.

So I went ahead and stopped by the Valero Eat Street on March 11 and actually had a blast, mainly because I was doing something I liked: eating, and eating by the load. The event started at 11 and I didn’t get to go until after office hours, but the place was still abuzz when I got there.

So, one of the places I’ve had on my list in a while of restaurants to visit has been Mad Mark’s Creamery, but more because of their supposedly great ice cream than their savory offerings. But then when I was looking for a good steak place one day while I was at the office, it popped up during my online search, so I figured, might as well give it a shot.

Melo’s was Stop #4 of our Westgate food crawl after we had our fill of that lingering sinigang paella at Neil’s. I’ve had steak at Melo’s before (at the BGC branch), and whatever good things you’ve heard about their meat is true. They do have some of the best steaks I’ve tasted, so I was looking forward to having more of it.

Leg Three of our Westgate, Alabang food crawl had us leaving Sushi Ninja and heading straight for Neil’s Kitchen, a place that promises to offer traditional Filipino dishes with a modern twist. On their menu, I saw on Zomato’s info card, was sinigang paella with grilled pork belly. What the hell?, I thought as we piled into the restaurant.

For the next leg of Zomato Philippines’ Westgate Alabang food crawl, we walked a few meters from Bugsy’s Bar and Bistro to Sushi Ninja, a restaurant that boasts of injecting modern flair into traditional Japanese favorites. As I haven’t been to this place before, I was looking forward to giving it a shot, especially considering I’d been craving good Japanese food that week.
