We dined here at Kitchitora a few weeks back. We were actually looking for a place with beer as one of us were looking for one. Though no one actually ordered it.
The place was packed and we had to wait a while before we were seated. There were only 2 things I remembered when we went here:
1. Service was slow and bad. We had to wait a while before our orders arrived. We also needed to remind the servers for our order. I think the servers were not listening to our requests.
We had to follow-up our gyoza numerous times but before it arrived, we already done with our meal, considering that we were waiting for some other people to arrive, and it was part of the initial orders we placed. Thus I don’t have any pictures but I remember that their gyoza was small. I think there were 5 pieces for less than Php 200.
While waiting for our orders, we asked to be transferred to another long table that has just been vacated as the people we are waiting for will be arriving. They acknowledged this but when they cleaned up the table, they separated it to numerous ones. We had to remind them that we asked for it. We ended up in another long table instead. And we had to wait a second time while they cleaned it up again.
We also did not liked that they removed the condiments because they were cleaning up and preparing for closing. They did this even though we were not yet done and it was obvious that we were still using it.
2. Their ramens were underwheming. It was actually bitin. Considering the price at more than Php300 each for a regular bowl, their serving was quite small. I would suggest one eat at Ukkokei in Pasay Road or at Shinjuku Ren in Pasong Tamo instead.
I cannot remember what Taj ordered at that time but it looked good in their menu. (They have nice food shots I must say.) At Php 195 each, the bowl when it arrived looked like a side dish.
‘Nuff said. Perhaps we just weren’t lucky that time. But with the numerous Japanese restaurants in Makati, Kitchitora would be the last in my list.

We received two boxes of this as pasalubong from relatives who came all the way from Pangasinan.
I only knew of the snack food version before, the one that you can buy from the grocery, and let us say that I am now looking at Inipit in a brand new light!
This version of Inipit is so soft, while the butter and sugar on top is so yummy, it will take a good measure of strong will to eat only one. It is actually a wonder why a box is still left after a week of this in the house.
And oh, even though we kept it in the fridge, the chiffon is still as soft as ever!

We were in the mood for trying out something different that time (as we always do). I actually saw this place before when we passed by the area so I suggested it. A quick google informed us that it is along Aguirre Ave., in BF Paranaque.
Dusadee Thai is a fastfood place. The area is not air conditioned. When we went there, there were a few diners with a mix of some foreigners. Probably residents of the area.
Their menu is not extensive but I think it is sufficient if you are looking for some Thai.
Aside from the menu, you can choose from the numerous posters inside the store. Surprisingly, you can order and pay from your table. I initially thought that you need to order and pay before sitting down. I guess its because the place was small and there is no space for a queue.
They have the usual Bagoong Rice which they offer in pork, chicken and fish versions. Their best seller is the pork bagoong rice so we tried that one (Php 80 per order).
When it arrived, my first impression was the pork serving was small. But when mixed with the rice and the green mango, the dish itself was actually quite quite. The whole dish was sweet, which was good for someone who likes sweet food like me
We also tried their Tom Yum noodle soup (Php 120). We actually started our meal with this one. They informed us that it was spicy but it actually tasted just right for me. It was not as spicy as I expected.
I liked this one because the hot and sour taste is just right, and because of the herbs, red chili and lemon grass. One serving is good for one but we decided to share this dish.
Not surprisingly, Junjie also ordered Phad Thai noodles (Php 120). I think he is in a quest to taste the noodles in all the Asian places we visit Hehehe
As we were already full from the Tom Yum and the Bagoong Rice, we only managed to sample this one and eventually asked the server to wrap it for us. Their Phad thai was sweet and I was actually looking for more ground peanuts in the dish. But I only had one very small bite so…
We finished off our dish with their version of the Thai Iced Tea (Php45). I think I can drink their version all day!
The reviews on the place say that their mango salad and mango sticky rice were also worth trying. Maybe next time as I feel that we would go back to this place again
For a meal for two, Php 300 is enough for a meal in this place.

I have recently discovered this trail mix from Healthy You, and since then it has always been part of my grocery list. I think this brand is from Robinson’s as I only see this in their groceries.
This trail mix is not as “healthy” as it looks, probably the reason why I like it 😉
If you look closely, it includes a lot of chocolate kiss and candy-coated chocolates. Combine that with the taste of almonds, peanuts and raisins and you will get the sweet-salty combination. And i guess you know what happens when you start on sweet and salty food — unending cravings! 👌walang tigil na kutkot hehe
Each pack is Php 49
I missed my hiyashichuka! #japanese with @jie_golo #coldnoodles #tummyhaven
I love breakfasts!
In my world of deadlines and meetings, a leisurely breakfast only signifies one thing: vacation and relax time hehe
Well, it was not really a vacation when we tried out Ally’s All Day Breakfast Place at Pergola Mall, but it was a weekend. So it was a leisurely breakfast, the way I like it.
We’ve actually been to the place twice, and always with a big group which resulted to us having ordered half of the things in their menu!
Below are what one can order at Ally’s Each breakfast ranges from php160 to Php 270. Actually there were only a few items I recall that cost Php 270 – their bagnet and the glazed chicken. All the rest were either Php 160 and Php 180.
(L-R) Vigan longanisa, bacon and omelette
They actually offer different longanisa types like lucban, native and vigan.
(L-R) Tinapang bangus, tocino and Batangas tapa
I love their tocino! It was so soft. Their Batangas tapa though was so-so
(L-R) Glazed chicken and Bagnet
The chicken was a big serving of 2 thigh parts. The bagnet, on the other hand, was so sinfully crunchy
(L-R) Toffee Banana and Dark Chocolate
They also have pancakes which costs P250 each. A serving is 3 layers tall and topped with 3 scoops of ice cream We liked the toffee banana more as it has the right blend of sweetness and banana taste. They informed us that the Dark Chocolate was their best seller.
They also have DIY pancakes, waffles, french toasts and crepes. Service was also fast. Numerous things to make me want to come back again and again.
