A Hidden Gem

One night, our friends invited us for dinner at this nice restaurant inside BF Homes in Paranaque. They said we'll love it.

We definitely did.

Adrian, Kenneth & Melina shared the Lamb Piccata Platter - it's composed of Lamb Fillet, Beef Espetada, Farfalle Pasta, Roasted potato and salad. The servings were huge! (to think that this only costs P995!)

I tried their house special, the Chicken Espetada (I cannot eat lamb & beef because of my food allergy). They served it on a skewer stand which I found pretty cool. Food presentation is a big plus for me - it makes it look more palatable.

Adrian and I were pleasantly surprised to say the least. The food was very good and the menu pricing was reasonable. The service was fine with all of the staff being very attentive and helpful.

The only thing I've been wondering is this: how come no one else seems to have picked up on this yet? Anyway, it was a good thing. We didn't have to worry about making a reservation, and it was quiet enough that we can hear each other talk without having to shout over the clatter of dishes or other diners talking. It comes as a surprise that it's the first time I've heard about this place. Anyway, we're definitely coming back here to try the rest of the dishes on their menu and we're bringing more friends with us. :)

Good job, Don Limone!

Perfect Combination

I'm always ready for a new food adventure. Imagine my delight when I heard about a place that combines 2 of my favorite things in one dish -- Ramen and CHEESE. 

My fiance and I got there just before 6PM and got a seat. There were a few empty seats left but they filled up pretty quickly. Got a bowl of Double Cheese Tsukemen then Adrian picked the Shoyu Ramen. 

The lady asked me if I knew how to eat it - of course I did! I never go to battle without knowing my enemy. Basically, you pour the cheese sauce on the noodles sprinkled with Parmesan then dip it into the very flavorful broth.

It was amazing!!! Adrian loved his Ramen too. It was the right kind of spicy for him. He had to eat it fast though because the melted butter started creating a film of oil on top.

Service was efficient. I thought I would feel pressured to finish up quickly because there were people waiting for a seat but I didn't. I enjoyed every dip. haha
