IMG_20180110_170632.jpg

Decided to check out Hebrews Cafe, because most of my friends in facebook and Instagram been posting this cafe lately. Opened in month of November 2017 this cafe really making a name throughout the town of Binalonan and the neighbourhood.

 

The style of table set up and arrangements in here is pretty cool, because they have the sit seiza-style – sitting on the floor style on the one corner, the common table, bar table if you want to be more in high chair, and sofa table if you want more on lounging. It’s your choice of table depends on your mode and availability of the cafe 🙂

Cafe is nothing without a wifi NOWADAYS, this cafe has the fastest wifi among the cafe’s I’ve been. On our first visit, the wifi speed was 10 Mbps and that was in the afternoon. But on my last visit it was 19 Mbps around 8pn in the evening, and that was really astonishing. So it’s perfect place to do your assignments, reports and works here or even updating your phones and installing games etc., 🙂 Wifi password is all Bible verses just don’t hesitate to take the password from any of their staff.

Tom Yum – Php 420

Tom Yum @Php 420 this is a must eat in any Thai Restaurant, the shrimp didn’t taste fresh as it could be.

Vegetable Fried Rice small Php 280

Vegetable Fried Rice small @Php280 we have been told that the portion of the rice is good enough for 2 to 3 person. But we are quite disappointed when they serve us the fried rice. Because it is not what we expected, it’s only good enough for one person.

Pandan Leaf Chicken Php 380

Pandan Leaf Chicken @Php 380  Marinated chicken thigh wrapped in pandan leaves served with sweet tamarind sauce, the chicken is very dry and not tender when you had a bite.

Nilagang Beef Bulalo – Php 495

It was a rainy evening, so I ordered this beef marrow stew to devour in such perfect weather. But we were quite disappointed with the taste, because they used too much of knorr beef broth cubes, so it’s doesn’t have a natural beefy flavour from the meat itself and of course you will taste MSG from it. We didn’t finish it and not even interested to take it away.

Asian Fried Chicken – Php 325

Milk-marinated crispy fried chicken served with chili garlic fried rice and tamarind ketchup. The chicken doesn’t marinated well, because I couldn’t even taste the marinade from the chicken.

Lamb Chop – Php 900

This one deserve a compliment, It’s not in a 5 rate but it’s quite acceptable from our taste. It’s a big portion, so it’s good for sharing.

 

Verdict…

Not much of customers on the night we’ve dine in, but it took them an hour to serve our orders, the fact that most of the people in the restaurant was eating the food from the buffet.

As soon as we stepped into Museum Cafe, we were welcomed by the staff and the sense of openness by its beautiful ambiance. Not magnificent chandelier, but a simple bulb with the simple ball shape into it that turned splendid.

Kimpura @Greenbelt 5, Makati City, Philippines

I thought our last minute plan for Christmas Eve dinner will fail through, because most of the restaurants around are “fully booked”. So, after countless of searching and calling, we finally found this restaurant that made our Christmas Eve last minute plan went very well.

We are number 9 from the waiting list when we made a call, but after an hour we decided to left from our place and walked to the restaurant. For some fortunate instance, there are the same name under reservation which we thought it’s ours, that we only found out when we almost done our food. Well… Sorry 🙂

Kimpura speaks of exquisite dining experience. From its intricately designed entrance to its lavishly styled interiors. Left side from the entrance, you will see the sushi counter who is freshly prepared by the chef! Yummy..

 

Our very passionate chef on the day who is very welcoming! He greeted us before he start cooking our teppanyaki. This restaurant using MSG for cooking but, the chef would ask you if you want to add for your teppanyaki.

Yaki Gyoza @Php150 Steamed dumplings of cabbage and pork with flavoured sauce. Gyoza has been pan-fried to crispy golden brown at the bottom, and then lightly steamed to create the nice contrast in mouth feel and texture.

Unagi Teishoku @Php775 this broiled eel served over a bed of rice is juicy, fatty-tasting unagi and the kabayaki sauce that gives the plenty of sweetness. Plus it has an appetizing texture – crisp on the outside but succulent and tender on the inside. Absolutely delicious!

LaMesa Grill @Mall Of Asia

I decided to give my Malaysian friend a welcome dinner treat on the day she arrived Philippines. Because it’s her first time in Filipino Land, I brought her in a Filipino restaurant located at Mall of Asia.

IMG_5343.JPG

LaMesa Grill serves wide variety of Filipino from appetizers to soups, main dishes to well-known grilled items, choice of meat and seafood complemented with a selection of desserts coupled with specialty drinks. They also offer combo platters to have a taste of everything on their menu and alcoholic drinks.

Lamesa Combo E @Php 580 consist of grilled chicken, grilled pork, shrimp, squids, and mussels. I love grilled stuffs, they are quite tempting, but these ones are quite untasty and dry. At Least they should have done the perfect marinate for chickens and pork barbeque/grill to give a perfect taste. So we did asked for some soya sauce, calamansi and chili to add some taste of the food.

 

IMG_5349

Sisig with Egg @Php 205 my friend likes this one, but for me who really know the taste of Filipino Sisig I would rate 2.7 out 5. Because they seems did not used the pig parts that is supposed to be for this dish, but at least there’s a chicharon on top of it.

 

img_5340.jpg

Sigarilyas sa Gata @Php 185 I had a very good impression of the taste of this one, a simple vegetable turned into delicious meal cooked with coconut milk.

 

IMG_5352

Halo Halo @Php 130 this Filipino dessert is almost the same as Ais Kacang/ABC dessert in Malaysia, that’s why I let my friend tried the Filipino version of it. hehe! How I wish to have more condensed milk in our halo halo.

img_5881.jpg

Kiss the Tiramisu is a dessert cafe from South Korea opened their first outlet in Philippines 2 months ago, that offers Tiramisu soft serve, coffee, and cake. This soft serve ice cream became insanely popular in HK, Malaysia, SG, Thailand, Canada and now Philippines.

Kiss the Tiramisu Manila can accommodate 15 to 20 customers, they have very comfortable chairs and they used glasses to design the place (pretty good idea huh)

 

img_5876.jpg

Classic Tiramisu Ice Cream @Php265 is the best seller. The smooth Mascarpone cream combined with the coffee, cocoa powder and vanilla soft serve turns into a heavenly delicious dessert served in a pretty disposable cup.

img_5879.jpg

Midas Touch @Php295 it’s a soft serve ice cream with ube cake(purple yam), caramel custard and some ingredients topped with an edible gold leaf. Is it sweet? Yes it is. Because it combines all the sweet ingredients into it. They says that this ice cream is “Halo Halo” inspired.
