I, together with my 8 colleagues, discovered something big after our team lunch in Tagaytay a couple weeks ago. But before our discovery, we had to hop on and hop off our automobiles to reach that point. The group fit in 3 cars. From our starting point, RSM Tagaytay where we had lunch, our car passed by Colette’s first, to bring home some pasalubong to our families, while the other 2 cars went ahead to Solenad. Second stop, we proceeded to Solenad 1, thinking the 2 cars were there. After several minutes, we found out they were all at Solenad 2, not Solenad 1. We made a U-turn to follow the rest at Solenad 2. If you ask me how the weather was, well it was scorching hot. Summer heat was so evident and wearing shades was necessary.
As our car reached Solenad 2, we saw our colleagues and followed them. I thought we were gonna settle there. Only to find out, we had to go back to Solenad 1, where our car came from. There weren’t any restaurants at Solenad 2 they wanted to try out.
So then, we went back to Solenad 2, went down the car and looked for a restaurant. We entered Uncle Cheffy’s and all 9 of us sat down and asked for the menu. Not more than 10 minutes, the group decided to transfer to another area. We had to ride our cars again and head to Paseo de Sta. Rosa where there were more restaurants.
We parked near Kanin Club area and walked all the way to T.O.S.H. (The Old Spaghetti House) since we were advised only the last minute by the others that we would all settle and eat there. It wasn’t that far actually, but because of the heat, it seemed far from us. So we finally walked and saw T.O.S.H. When we saw our other colleagues there, we noticed they were just outside standing up. Guess what? We had to walk all the way back to Kanin Club area since T.O.S.H. didn’t have air-con. Whew!
This is it! The moment we’ve been all waiting for. We didn’t end up at Kanin Club, instead, we finally found our spot at Big 30 Pizza & Pasta right in front of Kanin Club. Woohoo! Finally! :D All smiles on our faces and rejoiced when we finally settled down and ordered our food. :)
3 flavors in 1 30-inch pizza:
1) Big 30 Supreme (Php 1,328/30inch)- Ground pork/beef, bacon, ham, salami, pepperoni, bell pepper, black olives, mushrooms, onions, cheddar cheese, mozarella cheese.
2) All Cheese (Php 1,268/30inch) - White sauce, bernaise sauce, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
3) All Meat (Php 1,608/30inch) - Ground beef/pork, meat chunks, bacon, ham, frankfurter sausage, special cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese
I didn’t see any option on the menu that all 3 flavors can be combined. I just thought of giving it a try and asked the server if they have an assorted flavored pizza. Positively, they have! We just had to wait for about 20 minutes for our pizza to come.
Criss-cut Potato Chips (Php 60) - For snacks while waiting for our 20-minute 30-inch pizza to come, this potato chips warmed our stomachs for another big eating. Take note, we just had our lunch at RSM, so some of us are still kind of stuffed. I like the texture of the chips while munching on it. Normally, after 1 try of oily chips, I stop eating. However, I didn’t notice myself I nibbled on these chips until I found my fingers oily already. Maybe the cheesy dip made me nibble.
Before giving it a try, I needed a photo with this “Instagram worthy” pizza.
On April 23, 2013, that’s this Tuesday evening at 10pm, you will see me as one of Pop Talk’s food trip reviewer.
Pop Talk is a lifestyle show hosted by Tonipet Gaba, not just a foodie but also a restauranteur. This lifestyle show is all about showcasing the best of Filipino culture, updating audiences the hippest restaurants to visit, foods to try, gadgets to get, music to listen to and more.
In this episode, I am privileged to be part of their food trip episode where I reviewed the restaurant and dishes not on my blog, but on national TV! Woohooo! I still can’t believe it. This is such a dream come true! Hehe! But seriously, I never imagined this would happen. I’m very grateful Pop Talk gave me the chance to share my knowledge and passion for food. One of the best experiences! I’m not kidding! :)
So anyway…. I don’t want to spill the beans. I’d just give you some snapshots on what we did during our Pop Talk food trip.
The Host - Tonipet Gaba
The three food reviewers - With Marc Acueza as the celebrity food reviewer and Ate Jay-Ann who we pulled out from the LRT crowd to join our food trip.
Weeks ago, before my trip to Malaysia, I got an invite to try the products of this Malaysian franchise named Kebab Turki at Makati City. We scheduled my visit in the evening, as usual, right after my 8-hour job. We didn’t experience any difficulties in looking for the building where Kebab Turki is. Actually on the same building where Dakasi is, so that became my landmark. However, we slightly got lost after parking the car. Unlike Dakasi Milk Tea, Kebab Turki is kind of hidden at the corner back side of Dela Rosa street, the main road. After several minutes, we find our way to the hole in the wall, Baba Rafi’s Kebab Turki.
6 of us entered the store and Kebab Turki became crowded instantly. If you are thinking of a dine-in Kebab restaurant, this is not the place. Kebab Turki is designed for on-the-go people, ideally busy office people from Makati, those who work within the area.
As soon as we ordered, our kebabs were prepared right away. The glass window allows customers to view how their kebabs are done.
To set things straight, I didn’t eat & run. I ran then I ate. That’s basically some of the words to describe what happened at this event.
To give you more details, let me share with you my experience at Eat & Run fun run.
For my readers, I know you guys are aware of this fun run I posted a month ago. I had a blog giveaway contest wherein 2 lucky winners joined the run for free. Organized by the team who popularized the zombie run a.k.a. Outbreak Manila, they came up with another cool concept called Eat & Run.
Once Runtertainment sent me their proposal about this event, I accepted the challenge immediately. I missed running! So I didn’t let go of the chance to be part of this fun run.
Preparation before the run:
1) Slept earlier than my usual schedule. Ensured I had enough rest and sleep during that week.
2) Organized things I needed for the day of my fun run. I bought a big bottle of gatorade to quench my thirst before running.
3) Planned my breakfast before the run.
4) Created a new playlist to hype me up in the morning. Hahaha!
