I didn’t realize that Futomaki meant “large, fat rolls” (according to Wikipedia).  I couldn’t even finish this order.

We spent our Saturday amongst the company of good friends and bottomless food.

And this was the highlight of my Saturday food binge.

Love at first bite: KETTLE

Have you tried Kettle in Shangri-La Plaza? I just did last Satruday, and I fell in love with it. Comfort food at its deep-fried best hahahaha

We started with this to-die-for Pork and Potato strips. It was basically crispy pork belly at the bottom of this mountain of home made potato strips. I could smell a hint of truffle oil there :)

JodiesDaddy and I also shared a Clam Chowder for starters.

JodiesDaddy had Shrimp Po’ Boy as his main dish - it was basically deep fried Cajun breaded shrimp sandwich. Although JodiesDaddy felt that the breading overpowered the shrimp taste, he still managed to devour this. I actually liked it.

Jodie and I shared this super delicious Buttermilk Fried Chicken. It was served with corn bread. Personally, one of the best fried chickens I’ve had in awhile. It’s actually good for sharing, and Jodie and I didn’t even make it to the 2nd piece.

I was extremely happy with our meal at Kettle that I want to go back there again this weekend hahaha next to try: Steak with Bone Marrow! YUM!

I was craving for a classic Margherita pizza.

Ended up in Project Pie and built myself one that came closest — but added gorgonzola and garlic — but did not quite satisfy what I was looking for. JodiesDaddy on the other hand stuffed his pie with chorizo, bacon, olives, mushrooms, onions and garlic.

So… I’m still craving for a Margherita… Anyone know where I can get one in the Makati/Taguig area? :)

What I ate on board KLM. Surprisingly there were 2 Filipino dishes: Beef Caldereta and Pork Adobo :)

Amorino gelato came highly recommended by a colleague.  Part of the Amorino experience is the gelato scooped onto a cone looking like a rose!  And depending on the combination of colors you select, you can end up with a very pretty cone.

I had Speculoos, Dark Chocolate and Pistachio — so I can’t really complain that my gelato flower didn’t turn out to be too pretty haha

My London food trip

I was recently sent to London for a quick business trip and for the first time (after quite a number of business trips through the years), I didn’t scrimp on my food; I didn’t even eat in McDonalds!

Here’s a glimpse of what I ate:

Since I was already in London, I just had to eat good ol’ English Fish and Chips. We went to Golden Union, where I had a choice between Cod or Haddock. I went with the Haddock - a flakier and tastier fish.

Another must-eat meal for me during this trip was Nando’s, which serves Portuguese Peri-Peri Chicken. I ate here when I was last in London back in 2007 and I remember loving it. I had 1/4 chicken with chips, and had the mild spicy Peri-Peri sauce.

Ishbilia was where we went for some Lebanese food. It was something we picked out of the blue after window shopping along Knightsbridge. And it was a very good decision! The food was incredible! We loved all of it.

A quick lunch at Crussh had me eating some Japanese. It wasn’t the best sushi though haha

Did someone say Argentinean steak?! Oh yes! We had this at Gaucho. We got the Gaucho Sampler, 1.2 kgs of select beef: Cuadril, Chorizo, Ancho and Lomo.

Like Nando’s, Wagamama wass a restaurant I ate at previously. However, it didn’t make much of an impression then as I can’t even remember what I had haha. But since it’s Asian and I was already missing rice, I could not resist this for lunch. Had some deep fried squid and sticky rice.

Some Italian at Cucina for a pre-dinner meal. Shared a pizza Margherita and a pasta Amatriciana (oh and some fries!).

Last supper at London. We ate a recommended Mexican place called Wahaca. Had another sampler which had: Pork Bilbil Tacos, Chicken Tinga Tacos, Broad Bean Quesadilla, Black Bean Tostadas, Potato Taquitos and a Wahaca slaw.

Although I can safely say that I had a very satisfying, multi-cultural (English, Portuguese, Lebanese, Japanese, Argentinean, Chinese, Italian, Mexican) gastronomic experience during my short time in London… I think I just grazed the tip of the iceberg. And I can’t wait for another opportunity to dive in to what London’s food scene can offer! :)
