NYFD

It’s not about New York City’s Fire Department but about my son and myself whom can be regarded as french fries fanatics. We are one of those frequent customers of those fast foods and restaurants offering this on their menu. Last January 19, 2014, during the day when we watched the PBA game (TNT vs GIN) we were able to try NYFD (New York Fries and Dips) based inside the Big Dome (Araneta Coliseum). For me it has the best french fries so far with it’s not so salty taste made better with variety of dips. If I would be asked to rate it, I would probably give it five (5) stars.

J.Co

Other than the selection of wedding rings it really amazes me seeing longer lines in some J. Co Doughnut store. I am sure everybody who also sees such become curious as I am imagining how good the taste of these round or ring like flavored bread is. I guess I had repeatedly tries and tasted them but for me it almost did not meet my expectation (this is just my personal opinion). Probably because I am or rather I have a sweet tooth and so as my son that’s why it does not have that much of appeal to us. On the contrary, some of my friends and office mates love it.

Food Business

Contrary to my performance at work I have gained a lot of unexpected compliments when it comes to cooking. They say that I have this talent of sufficing their hunger with real satisfaction of their taste buds. With that I am trying to consider the idea. Maybe it is indeed a good fallback if ever I decide to resign from work. What will be my regular menu? Will it be for breakfast, lunch or snacks? I will try to think about it first. I love to cook and it is important to enjoy things and earn from it. Any business name suggestions? =)

Home Finally

Almost 12 midnight of September 30 we landed at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. This has made me feel relieved and happy knowing that I am finally home. Though it seems to be better to live in the United States, for me no matter how hard life may seems there is indeed no place like home. I still would want to grow old and die in the Philippines. There are a lot of things that I missed during my three weeks travel and I will take every opportunity to enjoy things here especially those moments with my family. I would love to eat galunggong again.

Dinner at the Rusty Pelican

It was my first night in the United States and I never thought I can still manage to go out right after I came in. Travelers usually got jet log but I was not. We went to do some grocery shopping and headed towards the Newport Beach for a dinner. We stopped by a seafood restaurant by the harbor named Rusty Pelican. I was supposed to order a wine but I did not want to feel uncomfortable and instead I just thought about a wine making kit. It was a good welcome experience for me. The food was great though I was not able to finish them as I am not used to large servings. I enjoyed it more when the band started to play. By the way it is located at 2735 W Coast Hwy, Newport Beach, CA 92663. If you are going to Costa Mesa then you better go and try it there at Rusty Pelican.
