Taco Bell.

After being boring for the past month, I did something spontaneous like going out after planning about it only the night before. Yes, I was that boring and bored. I treated myself with some shopping with my friend, Anna, and then went for a late lunch at Taco Bell.

Beef and Cheese Quesadilla Combo

I had the Beef and Cheese Quesadilla Combo (with Nachos and 16oz. drink). So cheesy and beefy and I don't know if I'm just too hungry or it really tasted so good. I haven't had Taco Bell for almost a year now and I was really craving for it last Tuesday. Too delicious and so worth the price knowing that it is an American franchise and all. The food and my appetite made it worth it.

What's your favorite Taco Bell?

Charlie's Grind & Grill.

I love trying out new places to eat especially when those places have very good feedback from my friends.

Charlie's is one of those places who made quite an impression with friends who also love to eat out. Charlie's is not a classy, high-end place but it's classy on it's own. What being situated right beside a carwash station, it has clean and air-conditioned area. Clean tables, purified drinking water (which you get on your own), two flat screen cabled televisions, an extremely cold air-conditioner and the very delicious food.

Okay, I have only tried 3 foods out of the many they have on their menu but those 3 are so yummy it makes me want to eat them for a week. Chili cheese fries, Black angus burger and buffalo wing (not in the pictures). Yum. Yum. Yum.

Please, please try out Charlie's located in Kapitolyo, Pasig City if you are looking for mouth-watering burgers, gigantic tasty fries and a lot lot more. Budget will be around P200-P350 for a complete meal (food+drinks), this might be pricey for some but believe me the serving is big for Filipino customers.

Golden Spoon.

In a super hot season like what we have here in Manila, a very cool, cold and yummy treat would definitely help in more ways than one. If you're a local, you know what I'm talking about; ice cream, halo-halo, iced candies, iced fruit juices, anything "iced cold" we would grab and chew/drink just to feel not-so-hot anymore. If you're a foreigner in a much cooler place than where we are, you're lucky. :)

Here's what I have been thinking of since last night. Golden Spoon frozen yogurt is different from all the other frozen yogurts that I have tried (and I have tried a lot!). Although it's not one of my favorites in the category, I think it's pretty delicious if you're craving for something sweet but low-fat or non-fat. Of course for a frozen yogurt treat, I'd still go for White Hat but last night I was craving for something sweet but guilt-free and of course... COLD.

2 small Boysenberries: the left one is mine w/ small mallows and yogurt chips and the right one is my nephew's w/ buttered pecan and granola

My nephew introduced this to me a few weeks ago, it was yummy but I was thinking of White Hat yogurt that day so I didn't really enjoy it much. Plus it was TOO expensive for me. I didn't even bother looking at the price (my nephew paid for our yogurt) of each, I just saw the total amounting to about P500 ($10-$12) which means each cost approximately P250. That's crazy. Frozen yogurts usually only cost P80-P150 including toppings. I guess I'll go for this one if I have money to spare because in all fairness, it's cheaper than a Haagen-Dazs and it tastes yum yum yum!

If you are in the Philippines, I only know of one branch and that is in Shangri-La Mall. If you're abroad, you can find Golden Spoon in Japan and in the USA (California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah).

Give it a try and let me know!
