[DFAT 2013] Mam Bebs


Our DFAT 1st Day, First stop was at Mam Bebs (formerly La Suerte Bakery). It is not just a bakery, they also serve food for lunch. We had light lunch at the same time meet up with DFAT 2013 Participants. I ordered Palabok and Pork Binagoongan meal for lunch. I shared my meal with blogger friends so as they can also taste the Pork Binagoongan. The meal comes with rice and noodle soup (mami) . I just couldn’t miss ordering the Palabok. For dessert, I was sharing a slice of chocolate cake with blogger friends. After a few minutes of looking around the store, I suddenly remember that I also wanted to order their Batchoy (noodle soup) and was asking friends if they want to share with me. But since everyone had ordered, well I just thought of visiting Mam Bebs again soon. But surprisingly, the pork binagoongan meal had a small bowl of noodle soup. It had somehow satisfy my noodle soup craving that day.

Here is what I had for lunch:

[Food Tasting] Tea’Amo Bistro


Just this Monday May 20, 2013, Tea’Amo has just re-opened not just as a Milk Tea place but now a Bistro. They have undergone renovations due to its too cute and too girly place, they had decided to repaint their place into a neutral color to fit not just female customers but also the males who are visiting the place. I have been to the opening of Tea’Amo Soiree last year. I could still remember how girly and really nice the place was. Now, the place is in neutral colors, at least it would fit both the male n female market. They invited us bloggers to have a taste of whats new on their Menu.

According to the sisters April & Chiara, what’s on their menu are comfort foods, which they loved.

Here are the food we had that night:
002

Mamita’s Chicken Parmigiana @ P165  (Must Try!) – Breaded Chicken breast topped with tomato sauce, parmesan cheese & mozzarella.

(can be served either with Java Rice or Plain Rice). The chicken parmigiana is really good, reminds me of eating pizza since it has tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.

004

Caldereta Bordeaux @ P185 – Slow-cooked beef bathed in special sauce with a hint of wine topped with cheese. The beef is tender and the sauce is flavorful.
009

Adobo Festival @ P165 – A classic homegrown recipe by the owner.

012
Spicy Pork Cracklings (Must Try! ) @ P155 – Pork slices fried until its crunchy, served spicy with tangy sauce on the side. You may find it guilty to try this, but its something u can’t resist trying out.
021

Curry Tilapia w/ Mango Cilantro Salsa @ P155 – Fried Snapper/ Tilapia infused in a uniwure marriage of Middle Eastern & Asian Flavors. For the health-concious. Its a good meal composed of fish and fruits.

018

Creamy Chicken @ P155-(Must Try! ) Tender cooked chicken with a veil of cream, topped with fried kangkong leaves. I love the creaminess of the chicken, its perfectly paired with the fried Kangkong.

016

Coconut & Pesto Braised Pork @ P165 – Slow braised pork blanketed in a mixture of coconut cream and pesto sauce.

014

Home Sweet Ribs @ P175 – Soft ribs with corn & carrots.

[Food Trip] Ah Phets Noodle House & Rice Topping


Last month when I went to Cebu to attend a baptismal. Went around Cebu for some food trip with my friends, was curious about this new resto that serves good noodles and rice meals. Since our flight was delayed from Davao to Cebu, we had a late lunch at Ah Phets Noodle House, located at the Green Orkid Commercial Complex on Escario Street Cebu City.  Upon arriving from the airport we directly went there as me, my sis and my friends where all hungry then.

Here are what we had during our late lunch :

Beef Brisket Noodles (Regular) @ P95

The beef was tender and the noodles was just light, the broth is not too salty. Its my kind of beef brisket noodle.

Tender Ribs Chinese Style @ P180 (Must Try!)

The ribs was marinated well, in every bite you would love the taste of sweet and salty. though a plate is not enough for a group.

Fried Spring Chicken (half) w/ rice @ P99 (Must Try!) 

I am such a chicken lover, whenever I go visit a new resto, I always make sure to taste their chicken, whether it be fried, or soy chicken or even steam chicken. This Fried Spring chicken is good, with the right spices, reminds me of the spring chicken I usually get to have whenever we visit Ongpin.

Ma-Ki Regular @ P85

This ma-ki mi is good, same with the ma-ki mi I get to have whenever I visit Ice Castle in Cebu. Ma-ki is a chinese style soup from pork broth in a sticky soup. Its also good if mixed with egg noodles.

Wanton Noodle Soup Regular @ P95 … The Wanton Noodle Soup was good,  🙂

As we were dining, I had a quick interview with the owner. She shared that this new resto has just opened a few months ago. They are also the same owner who owns Ice Castle, the popular Halo-halo place in Cebu. With its delicious food and affordable prices, I would recommend everyone to give this resto a try.
