Food in a Day

Often, I reward myself with good food. Whenever I find some free time after or during a particularly stressful week, I go to my favorite restaurants to buy something delicious – nevermind the price.Β Last week, I was able to take some photos of some of the places I’ve been to and food I’ve eaten so this post is going to be a sort of food diary for those who wish to feast their eyes.

Last Thursday, I had a very late dinner at Izumi. This salmon teriyaki dish was so good especially with sticky Japanese rice. Caught up with my university roommate whom I haven’t seen in ages over sips of tequila sunrise. It’s amazing how you conversations with good friends just flow and silences are rarely ever uncomfortable. πŸ™‚

Next day, I was early for a meeting in Makati so I decided to have a quick breakfast at a nearby cafe. Ice Box / Gerald, located at the second level of Eco Plaza, Pasong Tamo Extension, is a quaint French place selling drinks, pastries, meals, and pre-packed French goodies.

I had their set breakfast menu which includes a slice of baguette and a piece of croissant, your choice of tea and juice, butter, and marmalade. I ordered an extra plate of scrambled eggs for good measure. It was the first time I’ve had breakfast before going to work this year! Β There’s something to be said about the sense of calm you feel while going through the motions of having breakfast. I quite enjoyed it. πŸ™‚

Then my new addiction – green mangoes with bagoong (shrimp paste) from 7/11. I’ve bought a pack almost everyday last week. I think this means that it’s almost that time of the month. I love convenient food and don’t mind paying for convenience, actually. πŸ™‚

Watch out for more beauty-related posts in the coming days. I have been very lazy about blogging recently but I will persevere.

For now, let me know what’s your favorite food at the moment. πŸ™‚

  1. I love Baguette with butter or cream cheese. Wow green mangoes now are on pack before you can just buy them in the street and now in convenient store.
