Last week though, I was able to eat at Bonitos' for dinner with my three Manila boyzz. We shared a plate of sisig and ordered a combo meal each. I had the chili wings with rice.
Four chicken wings, nicely breaded, with a coat of chili sauce that was just spicy enough to tickle the palate of a hardcore chili fan (aka me) but not so much as to send me gagging and reaching for a glass of water.
I ate three of the wings and gave the last one to A because I was already full. Worth the price at 130 bucks for the combo meal, which already came with a tall glass of lemonade.
I haven't been to Bonitos for some time, so I was happily surprised that the place looked so nice and was already airconditioned! Prices remained the same though. Awesome.
Also, yesterday after Zumba class, I tried to do some studying at Ristretto (Vega Center, near UP Gate) and ordered an iced caramel macchiato.
Whoa. Can you believe all that caramel? 0_o
So sinful, but it's one of the best caramel macchiatos I've tried. It costs less than a hundred bucks too, booyah. Too bad they're always filled with noisy college kids during the weekdays so I can't study there.
In other news, UPLB is getting ready for Christmas! I think the tree looks pretty even though it's still unfinished. Can't wait for the lights to be set up. Christmases here are very pretty. Photo's a little dark, taken at dusk.
I have to do more LB food tripping, because food here is good and cheap! Next week I promise to go to Moonleaf and try that mediterranean restaurant I read about in BeliZone.
If you have food/ restaurant recommendations in the UPLB area, hit me up in the comments! If you are an elbi-based food blogger, drop a link. I'm just getting reacquainted with the gustatory delights my hometown has to offer and I'd love to hear/ read about your favorites. :)
Sorry for the crappy photo quality, I still can't find my camera charger hehehe so I've been using my phone to take snaps.
