Brothers Burger Presents : Brothers Lamb Burger

I admit, I am a loyalist of Brothers Burger. Their burger is really magnificent! I've tried other burger joints around the metro, and I must say, nothing beats Brothers Burger for me! Their grilled aroma flavor in their patty that you can't find with others is oh so delish!

 ``I didn't know that Brothers Burger has this burger that has a pesto! Being self confessed as a Pesto Lover, OMG! The name of the burger is Brothers Lamb Burger. Arghhh. For 280 pesos, I had this huge burger that I shared with boyfie since it's really big. Flavorful beef patty with creamy pesto sauce inside. The lady told me that it's best to put additional mushrooms on it. Though I know it's just their selling tactics , i must agree with her. It's really great! hahaha! Try-EAT! :)

The Art of Doing Nothing @ Sonya's Garden

This review will focus more on Sonya's Bed and Breakfast. The later post will be for their foods. Alright, lez do this!
- They are right, it's not actually in Tagaytay. It's located in Cavite but almost Tagaytay already. Since Sonya's B&B is limited for around 15 rooms (i think) it's a MUST to have your reservation to make sure your trip will be worth while.
It's 15 minutes away from Bag of Beans and NOT along the high way. You have to cross a street around 5 minutes from the main road. 

After registration you'll be directed to their room. The moment I saw the room, DANG! The place is really nice! As in SRSLY.  Forget the Manila life for a while coz this place doesn't have TV or wifi ! 
 "The Art of Doing Nothing" is the precious thing you'll mesmerize here. I had this "Old School Maria Clara" feeling inside.
``The crisp of the linen, every detailed and embroidery were created with love! It's freakinly classic! You'll enjoy the cool breeze while enjoying the nature! 
 ``In our room (Licorice) there's a Big Bed that can fit 3 person comfortably, 1 single bed, and a huge comfy couch (photo above)  
 ``They have this lovely windows that is protected with screens. The cold wind continously circulating all over the room, that's why it's really relaxing inside. And cold at night too! :)
 ``Their toilet is the bomb too! One of a kind! 
 ``Heater were also available too!
 ``Beside is an air flowing window too! Don't worry, the privacy is still secured here. But incase you're hesitant, you can close the window if you want to. :)
 ``Customized toiletries were available too! It's good! Lavender soap has great aroma therapy feeling. 

*Some Cute details in Sonya's*
 ``The door
 ``The cabinet (with lots of books too!)
 ``The classic chandelier 
 ``They also published their own book. 
 ``Fresh flowers were handpicked and displayed in every room
 ``Water and Taragon Leaves are provided too! You can create and sip your tea while relaxing
 ``Embroideries were carefully made
 ``Unique looking lamp is such a cutie too!
``Night shot of the room. It's really magical! :)

*So the next day, me and boyfie decided to stroll around the place and look for interesting plants*

 ``This is such a beauty! 
 ``Yellow Flower
 ``Rose Petals
 ``Pink Rose
 ``Sun Flower
``Itlog ni San Pedro

``OHH! and they are changing the flowers everyday! :)
 ``Lot's of cool looking fountain too! 
 ``Incase you wanted to release all the stress, you can also try their Spa :)
``You'll definitely love the nature here :)
 ``They also have Country Store there
 ``Lots of interesting things to find
``And their famous Panaderia!
``Freshly baked from the oven goodies. It's a must !
``But boyfie is really eyeing on their spread. :P

*Aside from relaxing there, you can also bring things to enjoy and maximize your stay there*

``Oh and btw, it's a MUST! You should have your picture taken at the Cozy Nook!

Caramel Donuts @ Krispy Kreme!

Because I didn't know that Krispy Kreme has a new flavor!  
``Errr? Or I'm just a late bloomer and didn't know that they have Caramel Flavor?  It's been a long time since I had KK's donuts. And I must say that I miss it sooo much! nyahah! Aside from the usual flavor we order, I didn't know that they have Caramel Flavor. The second donut above. It's really good! 

``The filling inside is not Caramel at all.  It's like a thick flavored caramel icing that's not nakakasawa. (Atleast for me ) Go to your nearest Krispy Kreme store now! Try-EAT! :)

Yabu-fied @ YABU: The House of Katsu

Have you been Yabufied? But I am thinking if Yabu is overated? Hmm. But since they've got a pretty good dish, I will convince myself that it is not. But really had a bad experience. Why? Read on! 
- Quite small. Considering the numbers of customers. Cute Jap style with comics wall, and a creative walls made from the comments of bloggers with Yabu.
 ``Wines as for display
``Comic inspired walls. Cute! :)
``Uniquely designed wall from different bloggers' feebacks 

*Their menu*

So if this is your first time, here's the step by step details on how to enjoy Yabu's food. :)
``You will be given a sesame seeds in a small bowl. All you have to do is to grind the seeds (not too much). Just enough to burst out the aroma of the seeds. 
Then pour 2 scoops of Yabu's Special Tonkatsu Sauce.

We've ordered the following:

- Wakame and Potato as appetizers (195 pesos)
It was good! The reviews I saw with this one is right. The wakame is so good! Remembering the sea weed coldcults in Chinese restos. While the Potato Salad has the right amount of mayo not too sour not too sweet. But seems that it needs a bit of salt.

All orders comes with Unlimited Japanese Rice and Unlimited Cabbage (perfectly paired with their dressing):
``Take Note: This is the first time that boyfie eats veggies! See? 'nuff words! :)
``Miso soup
``Pickled fruits
``Sweet watermelon and pineapple to cleanse the palate
Menchi with Cheese (350 pesos)
It was good. The panko crumbs outside really brings out the best on every dish. The oozing cheese inside is good that it blended well with the meat. 

``innards of Menchi

``Seafood Mix 2 (545 pesos)
(Consist of Salmon, Black Tiger Prawn, Oyster, Creamy Crab.) 
  • The Salmon is good. Very fresh and cooked to perfection! 
  • Black Tiger is good too! However, I find this too thin that you cannot taste the prawn anymore because the Panko crumbs overpowers its taste already.
  • Creamy Crab - Delicious and really creamy!
  • Oyster - Most Favorite of all! I can't explain exactly how this tastes like. But it's really good! All I know is that I find myself smiling! 
Okaaay, so what's with the bad experience? Here! I asked them to wrapped our foods since were so full and the food is still plenty. We pay > they gave us our take out > then go straight to office. When I open our food, to my surprise. It looks like that!
 $&@?!*%? SRSLY? It's seems that it's 'kanin baboy' when they just throw everything as it is. It tasted weird already. The meat laspes and mixed the color with the two appetizers.  but with that, naaaah!! Buti pa nga KFC, they have side dish containers, samantalang kayo??! Che! Still, going to give this another shot.
