[Food Trip] Don Beppe

Its been almost a month since we noticed that tarp hanging outside Gaisano Mall that Don Beppe is open. I remember one time we went to visit The Peak at the 4th floor of Gaisano Mall, just to check if Don Beppe is open. It was just a week ago, I saw the post of Davao Bloggers people dined at Don Beppe that I told my family that it was open. We were not fond of eating Italian food since my parents prefer chinese food usually. It was just last week that we paid Don Beppe a visit at the Peak. It was actually my 2nd time there, but it was my 1st time to be there with my family. Upon entering the resto, I like the look of its simple interiors, the place was well-lighted. It was like entering a resto at Greenbelt, a very classy yet simple place. We were too excited to taste everything that I forgot to take pix of some of our orders.. Here are wat we ordered:

Calzone Pizza

– I think we ordered the veggie calzone something..because when we ate this.. there where more veggies inside.. 🙂

Grilled Chicken w/ Mashed Potatoes

.. it may look dry..but its flavorful in every bite.

Some of the food we ordered that are not on the pictures are the Mushroom Soup – their mushroom soup is really good! and their Clam Soup in tomatoes are also good..a bit tangy but for people who loves something sour, its a good choice. As for the pasta, we ordered the Marinara and the Vongole. We were too hungry to take pictures of the food.
I would highly recommend Don Beppe. Though a bit pricey, with its good quality food and good service. I would definitely pay them more visits soon 🙂

[Food Trip] Small Talk Cafe

After taking a long vacation mid-October and attending a church conference in Legaspi. We had an extra day to explore Legaspi, we decided to drop-by a quaint place that was popular for their Bicolano food with a twist. It was a rainy saturday night, we arrived at the place at around past 7pm. They have a few choices in the menu. We wanted to order their famous Bicol Express but sadly it was out of stock that night. so we opted to order other foods that are offered in their menu. So far the Tinomok was quite an interesting dish for me, before trying to taste it I was thinking that the dish had liver mixed on it. but thankfully there isn’t since its ingredients are more of the seafood side :).

Here are what we ordered:

We enjoyed our dinner here and would still want to visit this resto on our next Legaspi trip.

All the pastas we ordered where good, the pizza was also good but id prefer a pizza thats all meat. 🙂 I’d rate the resto 3/5 in terms of food, price and service. 🙂

[Food Trip] Cyma

I was in Manila for a short visit, met up with friends and dined @ Cyma. Its a Greek-inspired resto at Shangri-la mall. Its been a while since I had finally dined there after a few attempts way back. While waiting for friends to arrive, I ordered a glass of Lemonade. I ordered their Souvlakia Souvlaki its like Chicken Kebabs w/ whole wheat pita bread w/ veggies n yogurt dressing. The chicken fillet was well-marinated with herbs and was grilled. We also ordered Tonnos Salata which are mixed greens with feta cheese,baked onions and marinated potatoes and vinagrette topped with a slice of fresh raw tuna. Didn’t get the chance to take pix of my other friends orders. I would rate Cyma 4/5 for their food and service. I would still love to come visit Cyma again on my next Manila trip.
