Heavenly Thai: Jatujak

 I always found solace in good food. Not only it makes me full but I get to taste different dishes that open me to be more adventurous.
We recently tried Jatujak(Chatuchak) in MOA. I have been eyeing this restaurant for a long time and finally I get to taste it.
Jatujak the Restaurant serves Thai food with a Filipino touch. In Thailand there is a weekend market named Jatujak so maybe this is where the restaurant got its name.
The restaurant has thai products and stuffs used as decorative pieces. The food is delicious.

Curry Vegetable and Tofu
The curry is so good. You have the option make it mild or very hot.


Crispy Pork
The crispy pork really speaks for its name.
Tom Yum soup
So far, I think, the best tom yum soup.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant because of the superb food plus it’s not too pricey.

Long before the bubble milk tea craze started I was already a milk tea addict. My generation probably knows this tea store at the corner of Pedro Gil Street near Robinson’s Place Manila, Easyway. It is a store located near St. Paul, Manila. They serve blended ice drinks, milk teas and fruit juices with nago(nata de coco), sago and pudding. The last time I get to taste their tea was back in college. Some time ago, I saw this branch in Recto and out of excitement I bought one. Then slowly some branches disappeared and the rival of Easyway, which is still in the market today, suddenly became popular, Quickly. Like Easyway, Quickly serves the same type of drinks on their menu. Until now I wonder what happened to Easyway. I found one website about them but it has a different logo. Did they change it or is it the same store?That I don’t know.

Milk tea is a tea with a small amount of milk and today’s milk teas have gone bolder. Aside from pearls, you can also add many kinds of sinkers like pudding, nata, grass jelly, ice cream, cheese, coffee jelly and a lot more.There are way too many tea stores today. I haven’t really tried all of them, only the famous and the accessible ones.

Cha time

Cha time serves variety of drinks on their menu which is good. The stores that I have visited have a very nice interior. The motif is very cute and homey.

 Serenitea

The store that I have visited looks normal to me. No special couches and tables.

Gong Cha

The ambiance is very similar to that of Serenitea, maybe because the stores I visited are all in the malls.

 Bubble tea

It has a restaurant type ambiance. The teas are slightly expensive than the other tea stores.

 Teazzle

Not a good one in my opinion. For its quite expensive price I was expecting Gong cha, Serenitea or Cha Time level

 Happy Lemon

The store’s ambiance is okay. It’s above Serenite and Gong Cha’s ambiance. What I don’t like about the Greenhills branch is the dirty flooring.

Except for Teazzle I will definitely keep coming back to the mentioned tea stores. The choice would only be dependent on the accessibility and proximity to my location.

Mochiko Ice cream

Another  yummy dessert .

Mochi Ice Cream

Mochi is made from sweet rice, also known as glutinous rice. It has ice cream inside which I think is very innovative of the person who thought of the business. It comes in different flavours and my favourites are azuki and avocado. Each mochi ice cream costs Php 70. One needs to wait for about 2 minutes before eating the Mochiko because it’s still frozen and hard as a rock. Once thawed, it’s ready to be enjoyed

 

 

Mexican food is my all time comfort food. Nachos, burritos, quesadilla and the likes put smile on my face. We tried Ristras Mexican Restaurant in Taguig City
Ristras has a feel good ambiance. It’s a good after-office place where people can relax and enjoy their favourite Mexican dish. Their burrito is ssssoooooo yummmmmyyy . I’ve never been to Mexico, but having eaten their burrito makes me feel like I am in Mexico. The flavour of each ingredient will leave you craving for more each time you bite. It’s so flavourful and mouth-watering. Their tortilla is just fine. The serving is too big for me but I was able to finish it because it is really delicious

 

Meat to choose from

This is how they do your all time favourite burrito. The colour of each ingredient is so lovely and yummy at the same time.

We also ordered salad which is also very good.

Ristras is located at Fairways Tower Mckinley Road Taguig City
