I was finally able to go to the the new wing of Shangri-la Mall for a meeting. There weren’t a lot of stores open, but there were quite a few restaurants. Since the ramen place was packed, we scouted around for a restaurant we could all agree on.
We finally settled on Balboa, an Italian restaurant. I learned from my mom (who ate there a few days later) that it’s owned by Marvin Agustin, the actor. I had to google who that was. Hahaha.

I really do love my job. I get to eat in so many different kinds of restaurants for meetings. This time is was at Wildflour in Taguig City.
The interiors are lovely. I love the wood :<
That cartoon is definitely me when I wake up in the morning.
Utensils in a big can for reminded me of Martha Stewart for some reason.
Complimentary Bread and salted butter.
Kitayama Steak and Egg on Kimchi Fried Rice.
Pork Chop, Corn, and Wild Mushrooms.
Strawberry Shortcake. I think it’s a fluffy cake topped with strawberries, raspberries, strawberry syrup soaked fluffy cake, and cream.
Bread Pudding. Only available on the weekends. Different kinds of bread in one loaf, sprinkled with powdered sugar, drizzled with honey.
Bread and dessert bread :D

I got a call at 3p.m. from my mom telling me she needs to eat NOW. My mom and dad had just come back from a tiring grand tour of eastern Europe and the airline food was so horrible, they ate very very little on the way back.
After suggesting a couple of new western restaurants, many of which were rejected immediately (“No more potatoes PLEASE, I can’t eat another potato.”), we settled on Nihonbashitei in Makati.
Hiyashi Somen. Cold dipping noodles. My brother never fails to order one of these in every japanese restaurant we go to.
Miso Soup, Gyoza, and Enoki Mushrooms wrapped in Bacon.
Cha Soba. Another type of cold dipping noodles. Only the type of noodles are different. The sauces for both this and hiyashi somen are the same.
Unaju and miso soup. At least one person from our table orders some sort of unagi. Mmm… eel.
