2. List out your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location.
#1: Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. (Greenbelt 2, Makati): The food is great and the service is A-1 awesome. Here’s a typical lunch Conne and I usually gorge on: New England Clam Chowder, Caesar’s Salad, Lt. Dan’s Drunken Shrimp, Dixie Style Baby Back Ribs, and Bubba’s After Storm “Bucket of Boat Trash”. Mmmmmmmmm. Another plus is that you’d get to watch the Forrest Gump movie for free via screens scattered throughout the restaurant area (I never get bored watching it).
#2 Gourmet’s Cafe (Tagaytay): Good food; great ambiance; and really fresh salads (they have a vegetable farm/garden at the back of the restaurant where they harvest their veggies, so I guess you can’t get any fresher than that!). Their Caesar’s Salad is a killer, the lettuce and other greens are oh so crunchy! And their pasta offering is also great. Although I once ordered their squid’s ink pasta and I tried to keep myself from smiling or laughing after dinner (You guessed it, the black ink was all over my pearly whites! Ha! From afar, I looked like I lost a tooth, and then some!) It was a blast.
#3 Saisaki (Glorietta): I love Japanese food, especially sushi and sashimi! And since Saisaki has a buffet (all-you-can-eat) setting, then it’s definitely one of my favorites. Tip: If you’re really up to the task of bloating your belly, then I suggest that you go for the “crossover” dining option where You get to feast on any Triple V – Saisaki, Dad’s or Kamayan – buffet.
#4 Gumbo (Mall of Asia): We first came across this restaurant one evening while waiting for the next “300” movie screening schedule at the SM Mall of Asia. We had 30 minutes prior to the screening time and decided to have a “quick” dinner first. And since I love Cajun cooking, we decided to give Gumbo a try. It’s too bad that we had to eat in a rush, because the food was actually great. And the staff were accommodating enough (we told them that we had a movie to catch and needed something that was quick to prepare) that they gave our order VIP, A1 treatment! Wow! To sum it up, Gumbo equals good food, and even better service!
#5 This is really a tough choice between 1) Dencio’s (Brittany, Sucat), 2) Toho Restaurant (BF Homes, Paranaque), 3) The Coffee Shop (Subic) – all close to home, and 4) Burgoo (SM Mall of Asia) and it’s hard to choose one over the other without having to feel guilty for leaving out the rest.
3. Tag other people (preferably from other countries/states) and let them know they’ve been tagged.
