When we hit and dine at Bigby's, I don't need to look at the menu and decide what to order 'cause there's nothing else in the menu that can beat my all time favorite Blossoming Spinach Dip. It's really something to look forward to and something worth ordering. The melted cheese with the minced spinach goes perfectly well with the toasted bread.
It started with their first branch at Guadalupe, a very small place that can only accommodate around 10 customers. Very private, homey and intimate. They have a very good selection of foods in their menu. American, Italian and Filipino..name it and Dong Juan has it.
My first time to try this place was with Elmer at their main branch in Guadalupe. He ordered Bacon Cheeseburger-PHP119 and Chicken Wings- PHP 99 while I ordered their Pork Chop Steak- PHP 99 (without rice). Second visit was mine and Ate Bem's joint bday celebration at Persimmons branch. Still the same, it's best to make reservations ahead of time because the place gets easily jam packed. We ordered Chicken Wings, Sisig, All Meat Pocher, Spaghetti, Cheese and Garlic Pizza and Mozzarella Sticks. Third visit was at One Mango Place and the 4th was at J center Mall.
Since their foods are freshly cooked, estimated wait time for your order to be served is from 10-15 minutes. Servings vary on the food you order, most are good for 2 persons only. Truly a budget friendly and a must-try yummylicious restaurant.
Another one on my list of favorites..Every time I feel depressed or sad, this is where Eho would normally treat me out. And he knows that the Grilled Pork Belly would automatically bring smile to my face. The last time we ate here was last October and every time the waitress hands me the menu.. I just pretend to look at the entries but in my mind, I already knew what to order. I would pair my GPB with their Buffalo Wings which is also really tasty and I must say the best so far from the all the BW that I've tasted.
Had our family trip to bacolod last June for Lola's 75th birthday. It's been 2 years since my last visit there..and Elmers first in bacolod. We had it all planned out..where to eat and places to visit. Mom, Dad and Yanna took a cebu pacific flight while me, karen and obet booked our flights with air phil since it's cheaper. Since Elmer had some business meetings to attend to, we booked him the earliest flight the next day. We decided not to stay at lola's place and instead stayed at a pension house just a block ayaw from our place to make it more convenient for everyone. On our first night there was lola's birthday party which was held at home, lots and lots of food and good laughs with everyone. The next day we had lunch at home and dinner at Manokan-the famous chicken insala of bacolod. That's something to look forward to everytime we plan our bacolod trip. On the third day, Elmer and I had breakfast at L'fisher and dinner at home with our request for crabs and grilled pork belly. On our last day was lunch at Bob's cafe and ordered the to-die-for burger and had our last snacks before heading to the airport at Bob's cafe.

One of our most favorite places.. not only the food is great but the place itself is heaven. It's very homey and the place is very private.. which is a requirement of honey. Since both of us really don't want crowded and busy place, we have this place on our No.1 list. Best to eat is their lasagna and their salad. Honey likes their Penne Carbonara. The price is really affordable and the serving is just right. When you;re at Simply J's you wont notice the time because you just want to stay there until the rest of the day. Enjoy their Wifi with their Hot Choco and Grilled Cheese sandwich.. hmmm... Whenever we're at Simply J's, we really feel relaxed and we can talk anything under the sun and not pressured with time and the people around us.

Finally we got the chance to try this place. Honey saw this in rctv and recommended this place. After doing my research about the menu and all.. we planned our date there. The place opens at 10am and since we got off from work at 8am ,we've decided to have coffee first at Vienna Cafehaus which is just right beside The Pantry. We waited till 10am and when the place finally opened, we were the first customer. We ordered the sandwich with tons of ham and the pepperoni sausage. it was good but not really my type of food. the veggies in sandwich was just so overwhelming that you can't taste or appreciate the hams. But it was a short and sweet date with honey..

It's my first time to go to manila and our first trip as a couple to his place. First stop was at Italiannis. I ordered Grilled Porkchop which was to-die-for and the serving was like for 3 people already. He only ordered Salad since he was still full that time. While we were enjoying our food, we saw Heart Evangelista and her boyfriend who sat next to our table. The price was a bit expensive but the food was really yummy. Next is Burger King.. one word!!!best burger.. I ordered the one with bacon and fries. Next is Heaven and Egg in Greenbelt.. food is OK. Then on our last day, we went to Krispy Krenes.. wished that i can have all the doughnuts there..then had lunch at Brothers Burger... to be continued
