Often, I reward myself with good food. Whenever I find some free time after or during a particularly stressful week, I go to my favorite restaurants to buy something delicious – nevermind the price. Last week, I was able to take some photos of some of the places I’ve been to and food I’ve eaten so this post is going to be a sort of food diary for those who wish to feast their eyes.
Last Thursday, I had a very late dinner at Izumi. This salmon teriyaki dish was so good especially with sticky Japanese rice. Caught up with my university roommate whom I haven’t seen in ages over sips of tequila sunrise. It’s amazing how you conversations with good friends just flow and silences are rarely ever uncomfortable. 🙂
Next day, I was early for a meeting in Makati so I decided to have a quick breakfast at a nearby cafe. Ice Box / Gerald, located at the second level of Eco Plaza, Pasong Tamo Extension, is a quaint French place selling drinks, pastries, meals, and pre-packed French goodies.
I had their set breakfast menu which includes a slice of baguette and a piece of croissant, your choice of tea and juice, butter, and marmalade. I ordered an extra plate of scrambled eggs for good measure. It was the first time I’ve had breakfast before going to work this year! There’s something to be said about the sense of calm you feel while going through the motions of having breakfast. I quite enjoyed it. 🙂
Then my new addiction – green mangoes with bagoong (shrimp paste) from 7/11. I’ve bought a pack almost everyday last week. I think this means that it’s almost that time of the month. I love convenient food and don’t mind paying for convenience, actually. 🙂
Watch out for more beauty-related posts in the coming days. I have been very lazy about blogging recently but I will persevere.
For now, let me know what’s your favorite food at the moment. 🙂
