I lost count how many times I have posted a photo of Halo-Halo in my Instagram account since the start of summer. I am not a fan of this and I can’t even finish a serving of this before but with the unbearable summer heat, I could have 2 halo-halo in a day! I could even have Halo-Halo at midnight!LOL.
Anyway, yesterday we had merienda cena at a nearby diner. It’s newly opened so we tried their specialty – Batchoy. It’s hot, I know, but my hungry tummy wanted a hot soup so no choice, had to try Tab’s Batchoy. After a bowl of Pork Batchoy, I and hubby decided to give their Halo-Halo a try. For twenty pesos, here’s what we had:
Food business in our city is definitely doing good. Week after week, restaurants open in different parts of the city. It’s actually a good excuse for me to go out and try out their food so I can have say out my “verdict” in this food blog. One of the most famous restaurants in our city has good musicians who serenade people from table to table. Many times people make requests and they are able to sing it! Amazing. They also have good sets of musical instruments. Personally I think it’s an important investment for them because some people could be very particular with sound systems. It would be such a turn off if they had poor sound quality. Whether they shop Ampeg at musicians friend, I really don’t know. Truth be told, I am more concerned of the food when I go to restaurants– but the music could be a very good added bonus, of course!
The first question I ask myself if I am considering of going on a trip is “what are the food specialties in that place or city?” Yes, call me a certified foodie! But really, traveling is such a learning experience for me and it matters to me that I know about a certain city’s specialty and if at all possible, learn how to cook it myself. My next concern would be what kinds of products I could bring home to remember my trip by. Usually it’s just the usual fridge magnets, mugs, don tomas, or some fans. I don’t really mind, as long as I have something to look at when I am home—added of course, to the photos. I wonder when my next trip will be and where? Suggestions, anyone?
