Have you liked a place/resto so much that you’ve been there three times in a month?! If not, you must try La Mesa Grill and taste what my bf and I have been coming back for.

Grilled liempo, La Mesa way
all-time favorite, Crispy Hito
Crispy Hito is a must-try!! It comes with tamarind sauce mixed with shrimp paste (bagoong). The scallops are also a must-try. I do not eat scallops and had never even tried to eat one except this one and it tastes good! The rest are also good but those two are my top choices.
Will I come back here? YES, definitely! 🙂
It’s a goal of mine (and my bf) to try out the different restaurants along Maginhawa St. in Quezon City. I have tried a couple of them but was not able to blog about them. Maybe when I get to eat there again.
Anyway, here’s a first to my series of Maginhawa Resto posts. After jogging at UP Diliman with my sister and her bf, we decided to nourish ourselves at Friuli (my sister picked the plcae). My sister’s been here a couple of times and she likes the food there. Their menu is very simple – pizza and pasta (and a couple of soups and mozzarella sticks). Their prices are very affordable. None of their items in the menu costs more than Php300.
Here’s what we ordered:
margherita pizza (close up)
The margherita was good (and healthy). The spaghetti carbonara tasted like bacon that is sweet. The mozzarella sticks were a good appetizer. We also ordered a pitcher of iced tea. How much was our bill? We shelled out Php180 each. And I thought we were hungry from the jogging. Well, we had fishballs before heading to Friuli. haha! 🙂
If you love Italian food, this is a must-try. The place is quite small and people are waiting in line to get a table. So better go there early.
O Taste: so-so
O Place: too narrow, can easily be crowded
Will I come back here? YES, if I crave for affordable Italian food
It was my first time to try out this resto. My friends and I were at UP Town Center and we wanted to dine in a place we have not yet tried. Tokyo Tonteki was right in front of us so we decided to eat here.
I like katsu so there was no contest as to what I’ll order. The prices seem to be affordable but there are also specialty items in the menu that cost more than Php300.
one of their specialties that cost around Php410
menchi katsu (costs Php270)
All these come with unlimited rice, soup, and shredded cabbage.
Our tummies were all full we barely had our seconds.
Will I come back here? YES 🙂
This will be my first foodie blog post. Although this is a travel blog, a journey isn’t complete without the food we discover along the way! 🙂
I love this cafe so much that it’s about to become one of my favorite places in Trinoma mall. It’s situated in the ground floor of the mall so it’s free from the hustle and bustle of too many people going around the mall.
The menu is very simple: sandwich, pasta, and cake/dessert! I love that their slice of cake comes with a free brewed coffee (if your slice of cake costs Php140 and above, if I’m not mistaken). And their seafood pasta is really a must-try!!!
Will I come back here? YES 🙂
Update: Parvati is now just a stall in Trinoma. -_- They still serve their cakes and pastries but no more pasta and coffee. 😦
