I love everything with mushrooms! I consumed more of the grapes on the salad. :)

Village Tavern

Grilled Prawn Avocado Salad
Habana Mexican Style Grilled Corn
Blackened Shrimp

It was a first time for me to try a salad with Avocado on it. I was used to Avocado as a dessert. The salad was quite refreshing to me and because avocado is really my favorite. So put it on anything, I'll eat it! :) It has freshly romaine lettuce with taco seasoned shrimps, avocado, tomatoes, red onion and nacho strips tossed in taco dressing. I am a bit biased but I also loved the Habana Mexican Style Grilled Corn with Mexican smear and Feta cheese. It was cooked well so no reasons not to finished it off! Bayou cream sauce was really distinct on the blackened Shrimp, reminds me of the rich sauces in Malaysia.

Krazy Garlik

Amazing Krazy Garlik Salad (Php 325)
Creamy Spinach Bites (Php 245)
Imperial Spring Rolls (Php 245)

Krazy Garlik menu are good with garlic's on it hence the name. I was a bit surprised that I liked the menus served because I am not really a fan of garlic, not when its cooked. We had the Amazing Krazy Garlik Salad, which by far was my favorite among the salads that was served during the 2 day food run. The Imperial Spring Rolls was full of flavors with its ingredients such as rice noodles, ground beef etc.

Bulgogi Brothers

Beef Bulgogi Salad (Php 325)
Spicy Seafood Dumpling (Php 450)
Tofu Steak (Php 325)

The restaurant that I enjoyed on the 2nd day of food run would be Bulgogi Brothers. I loved everything that was served and didn't limit myself on just tasting them. I thought the Beef Bulgogi Salad was sweet but it was a little sour which was ok with the combination of the greens and the sides. I love the sides, I have to taste all of it! The Tofu Steak was what I really liked the most. I loved the combination of the sprouts with it.

30% off on starters and bun and dumplings

Modern Shanghai

Steamed Shrimp & Pork Siumai (Php 298)
Xiao Long Bao (Php 228)
Steamed Buns with Egg Yolk (Php 158)

Well, I thought I already had my favorite resto in a day but I'm afraid I'm wrong when we came to Modern Shanghai. We were served with their amazing dumplings! The Steamed Shrimp & Pork Siumai was good but didn't consume much because I'm afraid I can't go on to the last stop anymore. Ha Ha Ha. It was my first time to taste the Xiao Long Bao, and it was really good! The soup at the very bottom makes it more awesome! But the star would be the Steamed Buns with Egg Yolk! It was the best thing ever! Definitely would come back for that one!

30% off on appetizers and salads

TGI Friday's

Calypso Calamari Salad (Php 525)
Chili Ball Park Nachos (Php 445)
Friday's Mozzarella (Php 325)

Finally, the last but not the least. We had the Calypso Calamari Salad which had a bit of sweetness to it because of the chunks of pineapples. I loved the Mozzarella, it was coated in their special Italian-style breading, then deep-fried and served with a rich marinara sauce. The Nachos are deep fried tortilla chips covered with rich cheese sauce, chili and pico de gallo that needs to consume immediately to prevent sogginess, served with fresh salsa.
