Thai 86 Cafe : A New Discovery

We were originally headed to the Vietnamese restaurant a month ago, but we took a detour on our way there when I spotted a newly opened Thai resto. We surmised, it’s fairly new because if our recollection does not fail us, the location used to be a Ramen House.

Indeed everything seem to be new. The furnishings as well as china and silverware are in mint condition. The modern zen interior is so appropriate. Everything looks perfect.

And the food? It’s more than decent. Admittedly, it does not compare to the Thai restos in our permanent must-go-to but it remains to be seen. The fact that it’s only a couple of weeks old when we dined, there may be some improvements in the future.

Hot tea was served lukewarm. Granting their electric gadget was not working just yet, how about just the plain good old way of brewing tea to cater to the customer? After getting their attention however, they remedied the goof.

What more than make up for what’s lacking is the service. Yes, service was impeccable. Although, it pays to go back to see if it stayed the same as the volume of diners increase.

I Need A Little Bit More

Calling all music aficionados out there. I need you to enlighten me more about this synyster gates gear.

That being said, I confess I’m not really that well versed when it comes to music. Although I went to music school as early as aged 6, and learned to read musical notes and can play a few musical instruments, there still a lot more that I need to know. That is, if I’m really that interested to widen my knowledge. With tons of resources on the net ready for the taking for free, no less, anything is possible when one is willing.

In the meantime, I’ll just have to enjoy the kind of music that I love and be content on the limited knowledge that I have.

Fuciaana… Take Two And It’s Still Good

The title says it all. Yes, we dined the second time, and the food is consistently delicious. The Chef is not skipping a beat and I’m so thrilled. These Japanese food lovers are so delighted.

There’s one thing we haven’t tried just yet. Their desserts! The thing is, the two times  we ate out, dessert is waiting for us at home. There’ll always be a next time though. I’m sure that we’ll be back sooner than later.

Another Gastronomic Feast

With my foodie husband, every dinner outside is always a gastronomic feast. I tend to just let him be because he has no other vice anyway but food. He always wants to see that our table is loaded with different dishes so we always end up heading out of the restaurant with a ‘doggie bag’.

Parkview is one of the mainstays of our must-dine places in the neighborhood. We’re always pleased with the service and the quality of food has been consistently good all through the years.

From Breakfast To Dinner

We’re lucky to live around a good assortment of restaurant here in the city that never sleeps. There’s a couple that are walking distance (yes, we can walk especially on a very good day, weather permitting), but most of them are just a stone’s throw away (of course with Sexie around).

Having said that, we’ve already identified our good, old, reliable restos that we go to over and over again. From breakfast to dinner, these are the places that we can rely on and always walk out full and satisfied.

With my trusty and handy  camera, I never fail to take snapshots of the food we eat when we dine out. Today, I had the time to go over my Flickr and unearthed a lot of old food pics.

One of our go-to restos is Parkview and I must say that from breakfast to dinner, this is one place that makes you go for seconds if you have the space in your tummy. Take a look at the wide array of dishes that they offer. Maybe if you ever find yourself around the neighborhood, you should try Parkview.

Take Two for Joe’s

Since we discovered Joe’s, it’s been a permanent go-to whenever we crave for Italian fare. As I mentioned on a previous post, if it’s authentic Italian food that you’re looking for, you can’t go wrong with Joe’s of Avenue U.

With the warm and friendly atmosphere, it makes ones dining experience even more memorable. You’re not only filling your tummies with great, delicious food, you are in a place where you feel welcomed and well attended to.

Last year, on our second time to dine there, we devoured what was served. Needless to say, we walked away with satisfied tummies and joyful hearts.

Celebrating Love And Life

February is a very important month in our family as well as many family friends. So many of us (yes, including husband and yours truly) were born in the month of love. You can imagine the big expense that’s associated with February, but I’m not complaining.

Unfortunately, I was remiss in preparing for the birthdays this year. A couple of those in my birthday gifts list will have to wait for the delayed birthday present. They are both musically inclined and I practically had to squeeze my brain cells so I can come up with viable ideas for their gifts.

There could have never been a much better resource than musician’s friend . It’s a one stop shop for music buffs just like our two gift recipients.

Next year, I promise not to go this route again . It is a challenge in itself to pick and choose an appropriate gift, and when procrastination takes over, it makes everything a lot more stressful.
