First time in Mezza Norte

There’s Mercato Centrale in BGC, Banchetto in Ortigas, Soderno in Molito, Alabang, and Legazpi and Salcedo weekend markets in Makati, all of these are tempting the foodie in me to visit at least one of them but they are too far. Alas, they finally realized that there are also foodies residing here in the North so Mezza Norte is born.

Mezza Norte is located at UP-AyalaLand TechnoHub and is open from Thursdays to Sundays, 6 pm to 3 am. We got there around 7 pm on a Thursday night and the place is already packed. Mezza Norte is a foodie’s paradise. Lots of desserts, street food (isaw!, barbecue, quail eggs), burgers, sausages, etc.

What I had…

Merry Moo ice cream, isaw, Manila Q’s Bagwang

My Yabu experience

Everybody is talking about Yabu! But this time around, I waited a bit longer and thought that maybe it’s just one of those overhyped promotion of a new restaurant. Heck, they already opened the second branch and the hype didn’t die down, so there must be something special about Yabu.

So when the opportunity came that we have to renew our passports at DFA Megamall, I know that it’s time to try Yabu.

The Yabu experience starts with grounding the black and white sesame seeds.

Gyu Gohan Japanese Sizzling Beef in 168 Mall

It’s our Divisoria day earlier! Jeff tagged along because he needed to check out fabric stores in Juan Luna and Ilaya for his DIY project. After his errand, we decided to roam inside 168 Mall, I bought a few accessories while Jeff just checked out some cool China-made house gadgets like alarm systems, flashlights, speaker stands, and cooking utensils.

It’s about lunch time so we headed to the new wing’s food court which is located at the 5th Level. You know how I dislike dining in food courts, so whenever I’m in 168, I always eat at McDonald’s, Jollibee, Chowking or Pizza Hut. But when I saw this new Japanese stall, Gyu Gohan, I decided to be more adventurous and try it with not so much expectations on the food.

Fun names of J. Co Donuts

Watch out for Jacky Chunk’s flying kick…

Out on a date with Blueberry More…

I’m sad, please Cheese Me Up…

Sorry I got carried away, J.Co Donuts names are so catchy :p

At last, I was able to grab a box of J.Co Donuts at their SM Mall of Asia branch. I have to line up for a good 20-30 minutes to get a box of the new donuts in town.

1 dozen of these babies is Php 350
