My Friday Banchetto Meal

Last time we ate at Banchetto, I opt to order pasta and I may say, it's the best meal I've ever had on a Friday Banchetto Night. It comprises of a whole Chicken Leg and Carbonara and what's best about it is that it only cost me a hundred bucks!!! It's so tasty and very affordable huh. This is the first time I had a Banchetto meal without a rice but since the serving size of the pasta meal itself is so generous... I easily became full. I just love it! I can't wait for the next Banchetto Friday when I can again grab a piece of the tasty chicken and of course the super yummy Carbonary.

Something Fishy Talaga

Last week week we had our breakfast @ Something Fishy Eastwood Libis. After our night shift - we decided to splurge thru their "eat all you can breakfast buffet" for only P120 pesos! The first time I heard about it, I really told myself I should try that once and since I was'nt able to enjoy the "eat all you can buffet" @ my brother's wedding @ Dads SM Megamall - I asked my friends to go try eating breakfast @ Something Fishy nga. Though it's kind'a raining and it's very hard to get a cab - we still made it to the place. Thru my excitement, right after the waitress found a table for 11 people - I hurriedly took a plate I almost fell coz of their slippery floor. Thank God I was able to manage my balance. To my dismay, I really did'nt want what I tasted. The adobo is sooo greasy you will feel you're sipping a bottle of cooking oil - the tapa is not that palatable soft
and the pancake is hard you would exchange it for a hot pandesal instead. I can't even remember one outstanding dish from the menu and take note, I can't even finish half of what's on my plate. Their bottomless iced tea costs P50 but it seems like they only allow 3 rounds of refill because after we had our third, the waiter who is refilling our glasses never came back. He only came back after we asked for the bill. Hmp! We ended up paying almost P190 each for a "not so good" meal and "three rounds of refillable iced tea". WOW! Though I'm really not so happy with the food, I am still thankful that I had a really good time with my friends. We laughed all the time and we've learned a lot of chizmax from the office. There's nothing that can beat "good and happy conversation" especially when you're stuck in a not so good meal. Here's some of the pics of our Something Fishy Not So Good Breakfast Buffet!

Chicken gizzard and Liver Adobo Ala Emotera

Chicken gizzard and liver adobo is one of my favorite viands especially if I am craving for comfort food...and most often, I eat that as a toppings to my hot rice. I will show you how I normally cook adobong atay at balunbalunan that never fails to make me full whatever my mood is.


1/4 k. chicken gizzard
1/4 k chicken liver

1/2 head garlic, minced

a pinch of salt
1/2 tbsp. pamintang durog

1/4 c. soy sauce

1/4 c. vinegar

Cut in to halves and remove hard inner lining of chicken gizzard, cut chicken liver into serving pieces. Wash thoroughly the chicken gizzard and liver and drain keep aside. Put in gizzard first in a sauce pan, pour in 5-6 cups of water, add in vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, pepper corns and a pinch of salt.

Bring to a boil and simmer in medium heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until chicken gizzard are tender. Add in the chicken liver and cook for another 5-10 minutes or until cooked and sauce thickens to nearly dry, season with salt as if required.

Serve on top of a hot rice. Enjoy!
