Nathan’s Sans Their Famous Frankfurters

What is trek to Nathan’s without the famous Nathan’s Hotdogs? Is that even possible?

Call us unconventional, but this team of two can dine at Nathan’s in the middle of the summer without the traditional Nathan’s dogs. It is definitely doable! After all, they offer a wide array of dishes.

With a tall glass of lemonade for each, we each ordered our choice of unconventional plate. I had lobster roll and my husband had frog legs. I have to say, we enjoyed this afternoon snack after a couple of miles of walking.

See you this summer, Nathan’s!

For Now And Later

When we want to dine out, and we plan on taking home food good enough for another meal (perhaps two), we go to Parkview. Yes, we’ve been regulars at this resto and we already know that their serving is huge and that we can easily have two more dinners out of it.

So now you know our strategy. Please don’t frown at us when you are bombarded with all these food pics. Know that no food was wasted, nor we ate them all in one sitting. We enjoy their food, and we’ve always been satisfied with what they serve to us.

So… let’s eat :-)

Simple Yet Satisfying

One Saturday, my husband and I decided we go light with dinner. We decided there’s no better place to head out to but Fuciaana.

We’ve been dining there regularly, and we know the menu as though it’s in the back of our head. Add to that the fact, that the resto owner has become a very good friend. I must say that getting sake on the house is always a treat for my husband. But nothing is more important than the awesome food that the Chef always manages to whip up. We’ve never been disappointed since we started going and the very impeccable service makes every dining experience even more enjoyable.

We rounded up the night at Starbucks for my husband’s weekly espresso fix and my good old standby frappuccino.

Traveling And Music

My husband and I although we’ve traveled extensively over the almost 16 years that we’ve been married, I must admit that we really haven’t explored much of the United States. We’ve been to almost all the continents and I know that there’s so much more to explore.

One place in the US that would be interesting to visit is Texas. We have a few friends living there but we haven’t mapped out a plan to head down there. Recently, I saw my musically inclined family friend posted on her social media account about their recent visit to a guitar center dallas. The birthday of one of her children is coming up soon so the visit was necessary as she promised her child a brand new guitar. I can imagine the kid’s excitement. I know that it’s been a long overdue promise. Nurturing the kid’s interest in music is a great idea, and making her child’s dream come true is priceless.

I wish I can say the same but we’re a childless couple. Music runs in our veins as we both love music. But for now, we’re content just listening to our fave music and hopefully continue to travel so that one day soon we’ll find ourselves finally ticking off Texas from our travel list.

The Hummus And Pita Co.

We stumbled upon this unique restaurant in Manhattan one fine afternoon in the middle of summer. It’s cleverly named The Hummus & Pita Co. The verdict? Awesome and healthy!

The set-up is unique in itself. You can pick and choose what you really want what’s on your plate.

I wish there’s something like it locally in our area. I’m a sucker for healthy options and this clearly fits the bill.

The Holidays Is Just Around The Bend

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I can’t believe the holidays is finally here once again. Where did the year go?

When the holidays is just around the corner, I can’t help but reminisce past Christmases celebrating it the traditional way we normally do, back in the Philippines. We have the longest Christmas and the merry making and revelry seem endless.

Having said that, parties and get together are the norm. And knowing how the Pinoys love to belt it out during parties, you can almost surmise an xga should be in place to complete the whole setting.

But, for now I’m just content reminiscing. Someday soon, I’ll find my way home and finally make my husband experience the traditional Pinoy Christmas.

Binge Eating: One Night Only

It was one of those days when we definitely wanted to binge eat. And there’s no better place to go to than Parkview. Definitely, this resto always delivers!

But before you say that we have the capacity to eat like p***, I have to let you know that we didn’t consume everything that was on our table. We had another dinner the following night. Our tummies were full alright, but we didn’t eat this much the next few nights hahaha.

Oh and to justify, as you can see, the choice of food is pretty decent except the three slices of cake. I wished I can say that those three slices were spared from my sweet tooth but no they were gone that same night.
