Grabe, my weekend was so busy I wasn't able to rest. Inaantok nga ako ngayon eh. I just hope I could sleep while making this entry no?! Hehehe!
Busy ako last weekend kasi (1.) Fun Ranch Playdate ni Jami and (2) Naglipat na ulit kami ng house. Yesss.. Tama po, naglipat ng house. Kaya windangers ang beauty.
Anyway, saka ko na kwento sa inyo yan, eto muna ang sasabihin ko for today.
Last Friday, during office lunch break, I and 2 of my friends went to 101 Hawker Food House. This is along Legaspi in Makati which is just a stone away from our office building.
My other girl friend bragged about them eating there so I asked our other two friends to eat there din. Inggiterang frog lang ako. Hahahah!
I am really not sure what's in store for me since I failed to check their menu and bestsellers online. I just heard my friend that they offer a very affordable and filling meal so I was sold. =) Besides, it was Friday payday.. =)
I wasn't able to take a picture of the front porch of the store because there were people dining in there, kakahiya naman na mapicture-an ko sila. Hehehe! That was their al fresco area, may one or two table lang there then the entrance na to the store.
|Their counter. This is what I see when I look on my right|
|This is the other side of their counter. This is the view on my left naman.|
Let's talk about food na...
|Our order was called set meal which was for 1 person serving. It comes with a free orange juice, walang ibang choice.|
|We were served this sawsawan daw. We just have to mix them together. First time ko! hehe|
This is what I ordered. I like that their rice wasn't dry. There's a pechay din in case na maumay ka with the meat. I expected lang na the lechon kawali was really cripsy kahit yung mismong laman ng baboy so I was surprised na yung balat lang ang crispy. Anyhow, malambot naman yung meat so keri na. I would say that this was "okay". What I didn't like about their Lechon Kawali is that, sobrang madami yung taba ng baboy kesa sa laman. Hindi kasi crispy kaya siguro I didn't like it pero the taste was fine. Masarap din.
|Salt and Pepper Pork|
Benj's order. Salt and Pepper Pork. It's spicy and really good. I am not sure kung breaded ba yung pork pero it was really soft. There's a unique taste too na hindi ko alam kung natikman ko before. Sorry, I suck in food reviews kasi yung taste buds ko may kinikilingang lasa. Heheh.! Pero I loved this one. Since it's spicy, mas nakakagana kumain. I just think na mejo konti yung pork dito.
Euclid's order. Nasi Goreng. This was what our other friend ate ata before us. She mentioned kasi that there's 3 chicken daw. I would say that this is the most sulit among all 3. They were generous in giving 3 chicken parts, plenty of rice and an egg. I wasn't able to taste the rice but I liked the chicken which I would say na magugustuhan din ng kids.
1.) They serve plenty of rice. As in madami so my friend's (na mga barako) didn't need an extra serving. The viand naman, tumatapat sa dami ng rice so keri na.
2.) Nasi Goreng and the Salt and Pepper is a must try.
3.) The service was efficient naman except lang when we asked kung gaano katagal ise serve ang food since we only have an hour lunch break. We were told saglit lang po yun. It seemed like 10 to 15 minutes before the food arrive.
4.) The price of the food is really affordable. Each set meal costs P130 pesos only given the amount of food. I would say na mas mura pa ito sa ibang fast food restaurant.
5.) They offer beer so you could have some after a sumptuous meal while catching up with friends.
1.) Maingay. Since there were people with friends there, mejo maingay lang for me. There was a point that me and my friends having a conversation then I noticed na parang nakikipag palakasan kami ng boses sa mga katabi naming table. Hahaha! I even said, ang ingay.. Sorry ha! Pero people should know proper etiquette din siguro while eating out. It was late afternoon pa lang pero kung mag usap, parang nasa bar na nagsisigawan. Hindi naman malakas ang music. Actually, I didn't even noticed kung may music background ba while we were there.
2.) I just hope they improve their interiors, mejo awkward lang on the restroom part. That's the only part of the store na mejo hindi inviting.
3.) I hope they could have other options with their drinks that's included on their set meal. =)
Well, that's the only thing I have in mind that needs to improve, some are not even food related because overall, our dine experience went well naman and I would still consider to dine here in the future. =)
