Yesterday, my girlfriends and I had our nails done, pigged out on pizza, each tried on that really pretty mint green party dress at the store (which didn’t fit well on any of us, hehe!), watched a DVD while munching on Cheetos and sipping on our signature Vodka/Sprite/Blue Gatorade cocktails, and talked until the wee hours of the morning.
Some things never change, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Kettle

Another check off my must-try restaurant list! I’ve pretty much lost count of how many times we tried to get a table at Kettle because it is always so packed - but this time we were lucky to get one table past 2pm (yes, it was still quite full at this time!)

People have been ravingabout Kettle’s Buttermilk Fried Chicken (served with honey glazed cornbread, country gravy and Cajun honey), and initially I was a bit skeptical, but I was completely blown away when I had my first bite! The breading was packed with flavor (I think they used thyme and pepper, among other spices) but it was light and crisp so that it didn’t overwhelm the juicy chicken underneath. I liked the gravy, but the sweet spicy Cajun honey went surprisingly well with the chicken too! And the cornbread, wow, I was able to finish two pieces of this moist golden goodness packed with whole corn kernels. Needless to say, this buttermilk chicken lived up it its hype!

G had the Australian Lamb Adobo (slow cooked adobo style, with tzaziki and truffle mushroom grown rice)- I don’t really like the gamey taste of lamb, but I think those who love lamb would love this dish. The meat had that comforting and familiar soy adobo taste, with an extremely tender texture. I liked how the tzaziki had a light cucumber flavor that tamed down the lamb flavor a bit, and the mushroom rice pulled all the flavors together.

Oh, and we loved their dalandan (Philippine orange) shakes too - light and refreshing, and not too sweet. We were both very, very happy with our hearty lunch here, and would definitely go back again!

Early Bird Breakfast Club

Last week, we finally got to have brunch at the Early Bird Breakfast Club at the Century City Mall. It took us a while to browse their newspaper-themed menu (really smart!) and we both decided on Filipino breakfasts - G had the Adobo Sunrise (Breakfast rice aka fried garlic rice topped with adobo flakes) - and I had the Sunny Salpicao (Breakfast rice with marinated chicken, mushrooms and a sunny side up egg). As if those weren’t enough, we also decided to share a plate of Choco Banana Berry French Toast.

The servings were pretty generous (considering that I don’t really eat a lot of rice), but both of us found the adobo and salpicao a little too sweet for our taste. By the time we had the french toast, my taste buds were overwhelmed with too much sweetness. I’m not really sure if it’s because we should have chosen their other dishes but it will probably take us some time before we give this place another shot!

TaiOne
I was excited to try this place out, having tried beef noodles when I last visited Taiwan, and it didn’t disappoint! G and I each ordered a bowl of Beef Brisket Noodles and the beef was soft and tender, and the soup was packed with flavor from different spices. The thick noodles were a bit surprising, but I think they worked because of the heavily spiced soup.
