It's a Sunday afternoon when ate Mel invited me and Badette to have our lunch at RUB Ribs & BBQ. It's an unplanned day!
 
RUB Ribs & BBQ is familiarly American in nature, with posters of famous Hollywood artists and 70s memorabilia. 
 
RUB Restaurant in Makati has about 50 seating capacity, which often gets occupied during peak hours. It’s best if you come early at the restaurant because if it’s at peak lunch hours, you’ll find it hard to find an available table. 

We got Raki's BBQ Ribs Singles (P220), served with 1 side of your choice (Texas Toast, Grilled Buttered Corn, Garlic Spinach and Mushrooms, Roasted Garlic Mash Potato, Bacon and Potato Salad, Coleslaw, Buttered Vegetables and Sprice or Spiced Fried Rice). 

The Raki's BBQ Ribs Super Duo (P390), served with 2 sides, is good for a couple. For a family of 4, RUB has a Family Brunch (P720), served with 4 ribs and 3 sides.

After a tiring day and enjoying our snow experience and laser blaster game in Star City, we looked for a good restaurant in Harbour Square, near CCP Comples (where the Star City sits).

We tried Sizzlin' Pepper Steak, a Japanese-inspired casual dining restaurant. 
 
The Sizzlin' Pepper Steak lets you prepare your favorite steaks, burgers, chicken and seafood on sizzling plates.

Take your pick - steak (burger - P179, chicken - P209, rib-eye - P549, tenderloin - P589, salmon - P379) or strips (beef - P209, beef tapa - P189, pork - P209, pork BBQ - P209). Next, add your sauce (teriyaki, white cream, gravy, Sizzlin' Steak). Then, choose your rice (pepper +P10, kimchi +P60, plain, garlic, curry +P30) or veggies +P10. You may add extra sides like pasta (P40), mashed potatoes (P20), bacon (P40), and egg (P20).

The Sizzlin' Pepper Steak offers ready-to-eat dishes. Their best seller dishes are Beef Pepper Rice (P199), Oyako Pepper Rice (P219), and Salmon Pepper Rice (P350).

I tried Beef Sizzlin' Pasta (P229). I have to admit - it's my first time to see a noodles in a hot plate. The Sizzlin’ Pepper Steak pasta has been re-imagined with peppered noodles. It is loaded with sizzling hot, thinly sliced beef marinated in a special yakiniku sauce with fresh linguine pasta. I must say - their sizzlin' pasta is now in my favorites list!

The Sizzlin' Pepper Steak is a unique concept that delightfully offers sizzling steaks on the patented hot plate system that prepares and serves delicious steaks within 5 minutes. The hot plate is an integral part of the formula of the restaurant, which aims to serve expediently fast and keep food hot for 20 long minutes.

Included in their Sizzlin' Sets menu are Burger Steak Set (P190), Salmon Steak Set (P420), and Minute Steak Set (P619).

For desserts, they have Turtle Cheesecake (P196), New York Cheesecake (P176), Blueberry Ice Cream (P89), Banana Dark Chocolate Ice Cream (P89), and Vanilla Cookie Butter Ice Cream (P99).

I also ordered Mango Shake (P70).

The Sizzlin’ Pepper Steak is at Alphaland Southgate Mall, BF Homes, Glorietta 5, Harbour Square, Festival Mall, Newport Mall, Eastwood City, Robinsons Galleria, SM Fairview, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, SM North Annex, TriNoma Mall, Venice Piazza, Ayala Center Cebu, and Robinsons Summit Ridge Tagaytay.

You may also try banapple's savory pies served with chunky potato salad (P165).

The original plan was to celebrate my friends ate Mel and kuya Aldon's birthday in Splash Island in Laguna but a storm hit Manila last July. So we suggested to celebrate the occasion in Dampa.

Some may not be familiar with the concept of 'Dampa,' which literally means 'kubo' or hut. Customers need to buy the raw seafood themselves in the market. After buying those items, customers will have to choose a restaurant that will cook and serve the dishes they want.

The seaside dampa in Macapagal Blvd holds several rows of the open-air wet market where customers can walk by and choose their seafood, and on the other side, a row of restaurants where you can have your items cooked. The place is near SM Mall of Asia (MOA).


The seafood ranges from P120 to P200 per kilo depending on the type of seafood.

There are many restaurants along the strip where you can have your seafood cooked. It all really depends upon how much you’re willing to spend and the kind of ambiance you prefer. 

Most of the places here are air conditioned and have an open air space to be used at night. 

We stayed at UNI3 GASTROHUB. The staff gave us a large space. The KTV room is free for the first 2 hours of your stay UPON serving the dishes. Excess hours will be charged P300 per hour. Since we got the largest space, excess hours will be charged P500 per hour. That's the KTV #4. 

A menu will be given to customers for the list of packages and cooking charges. Paluto charges depend on the kind of cooking you wish. For squid, it ranges from P120 to P220. For vegetables, P120-P170; fish, P100-P200; shells (P120-P200); pork/chicken (P120-P200); shrimp (P100-P250); crabs/lobster (P100-P280). Rice are served in cup (P35-P45) or bowl (P120-P180). Customers may also request for seaweed salad (P80-P120), ensaladang mangga (P50/piece), and sashimi (P50-P90).

The restaurant offers packages for a group of 3 (P1,200), 4 (P1,350), 6 (P1,720), 7 (P1,670), 8 (P1,930), 20 (P6,100), 30 (P6,940). These packages include different kinds of dishes, bowls of rice, and drinks.

It also offers Barkadas ala-carte (P1,950-P3,140). Included in the menu are short orders like fried salt and pepper shrimp (P380), grilled liempo (P280), crispy hipon (P350), and sizzling stuffed squid with oyster sauce (P280).

My favorite dish from this restaurant? The chili garlic crab! You should try this one!

HOW TO GET THERE:
There are many establishments near Seaside Dampa. Just between SM Mall of Asia and CCP complex, you may take an orange jeep from Gil Puyat LRT Station, it will pass by along this establishment.

I first tried Buddy's Pancit Lucban when my friend Abby celebrated her birthday last July. 

I can’t remember how long I’ve wanted to eat at Buddy's until my friends Badette and Rogelio took me there for a breakfast. On my way to office, I always pass by Buddy's Pancit Lucban restaurant in Kakarong and Kalayaan streets in Makati City.

I tried their Pancit Lucban and sago't gulaman. My favorite? Their Budin, the cassava cake.

Instagram Photo Link: https://instagram.com/p/4-sMmHL4kQ7_3jdj1J7j4RFw1RgbKOsrtAWaU0/

Salvador “Buddy” Veluz decided to make use of the piece of land owned by his family which was ideal for farming and started growing crops like radish, sweet potato, and Baguio beans. According to an Inquirer article, Buddy transported and sold his produce to Divisoria, Manila with his wife. One day, they noticed that their harvest was infested by pests, causing it to have black spots. Knowing that the harvest may be wasted, Buddy salvaged the beans and instead, made fresh lumpia out of it.

From the small space of eatery shared with his brother Agot’s LPG store in Lucban, Buddy  finally put up his own restaurant. Thus, the first branch of Buddy’s Pancit Lucban was opened.

Buddy’s remains to be competitive. Today, it has 11 branches in the country-five in the Quezon province, six in Metro Manila.



Buddy’s best-sellers also vary to where it is located. In Quezon, customers usually order hardinera, the province’s variation of embutido, and while in Manila, their pancit Lucban, longganisa Lucban, sisig and porkchop steak are the favorites.

Now I know what to try next time - Buddy's hardinera and longganisa Lucban.



What makes their branches unique is the interior - decorated with colorful chandeliers made of rice kiping, sunflowers, and indigenous products from Quezon, all inspired from the Pahiyas Festival. 

Buddy’s Pancit Lucban, which is priced at P139 for a plateful that can be shared by two to three people, is the kind of noodle dish that customers would love. 

Buddy’s pancit dishes come in medium (starts at P690, for 8 to 10 people) and large (starts at P1,100, for 11 to 15 people) bilaos.


The restaurant also offers sizzlers and steaks, barbeque and grills with rice.


For breakfast and lunch, you may try silogs, Crispy Buntot ng Tanigue, Paksiw na Lechon, Pork Molo, and Daing na Bangus.

For merienda, you may order Super Buddy Burger and sandwiches. For your salad and dessert - Buddys Halo-Halo and Suman.


Buddy's Pizza is also a must-try - Hawaiian Supreme, Longanisang Lucban at Kesong Puti Supreme, Chicken BBQ & Tomato Supreme, Tuna & Mushroom Supreme, Vegetarian Supreme, Bacon & Pepperoni Supreme.

Arenate Center Mall @Shopwise Arcade

From the creators of Vikings Luxury Buffet and NIU by Vikings, there's now Four Seasons Hotpot City, the new hotpot buffet concept. This new brand opens its first pioneering branch along the SM Mall of Asia bay area, overlooking the majestic Manila Bay.

July 1, 2015 is a special day for me. It's the CPA Oathtaking Day for the new passers of the Certified Public Accountants Licensure Examination last May. After this great event, my mom, tita Tin, tito Toto and I had a dinner at the new restaurant.

The restaurant is near and adjacent to the Vikings Luxury Buffet and Movie Stars Cafe in MOA.

Designed with a lavish and modern market interior, Four Seasons Hotpot City serves a wide assortment of fresh and healthy ingredients, allowing hotpot enthusiasts to freely customize their own dishes.

The interior of the restaurant also feels like a higher-end market, where customers can roam around and pick different food and ingredients to mix in their hotpot.
 

Opened last February 19, Four Seasons Hotpot City has seven stations: meat, seafood, appetizers, vegetables, Japanese, desserts, and bar. The restaurant is open everyday from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm for lunch, and 5:30 to 10:00 pm for dinner. 

You can start with some appetizers or go Japanese with sushi and sashimi.
 
 
The restaurant can accommodate over 350 guests. 
 
One hotpot per table is provided to guests. Each one is divided into two that you can fill up from the restaurant’s broth options like pork, chicken, vegetable, and sinigang. 
 
The vegetables station provides plenty of leafy greens, along with mushrooms, taro, carrots, celery, and much more. 
 
 
They’ve got many different cuts of meat from your choice of pork, beef or lamb.
 
 
The other station gives you a wide variety, ranging from different kinds of noodles, or an assortment of dumplings.  
 
 
The dessert station offers many must-tries like the halo-halo, chocolate fondue, and chocolate english pudding, Big Scoop ice cream with many topping options present. 

Four Seasons Hotpot City has five (5) private rooms that can comfortably sit a maximum of 12 guests in each room. To avail of the private room, the guest must book a minimum of 10 guests and is available on a first come first serve basis. Each private room is equipped with a special induction cooker for each guests to fully enjoy their hotpot dining experience.
 
 
Food that you don’t need to cook in a hotpot are also available.
 
Like NIU and Vikings, Four Seasons Hotpot City also has many beverage options. There’s a limitless supply of sodas and a number of iced tea choices. 


I must say, Four Seasons Hotpot City IS NOW MY FAVORITE BUFFET RESTAURANT!

As confirmed by Erik Matti, director of the highly-acclaimed crime thriller movie "On The Job," his next masterpiece will be titled "Honor Thy Father" with the box office king John Lloyd Cruz in the lead role.

This is a film about a family who gets involved in a ponzi scheme.

The crime thriller will focus on the family's financial ruin, according to a Twitch Film report.

Cruz has shaved his head as he takes on his newest role.

It was rejected by the Metro Manila Film Festival committee to become an official entry to this year’s MMFF. However, the much-awaited movie will have its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival this September.

It also stars Meryl Soriano and Tirso Cruz III.

Thanks to my friend kuya Warlito for this treat since I passed the CPA board exams last May.

SumoSam takes great pride in the transformation of the freshest ingredients into works of Japanese food art. Now, it has flourished into one of the largest Japanese chain Restaurants in the Philippines with close to 30 restaurants nationwide. SumoSam was brought about by its founders’ many travels across the globe and passion towards the art of Japanese cuisine.

Pinoy celebrity Marvin Agustin is now the chief of a growing restaurant empire. With partners Ricky Laudico and Raymund Magdaluyo, Marvin has now opened nearly 50 restaurants nationwide encompassing 11 brands—SumoSam, Kung Fu Kitchen, Tokyo Grill, John & Yoko, Mr. Kurosawa, Johnny Chow, Marciano’s, Komrad, Robotosan, Gambino and his latest, the buffet restaurant Banzai.

Going back to the topic, SumoSam's Tempura is made with only the largest, freshest Tiger prawns. It has a light and lacy coating using the perfectly-mixed batter, kept at an ice-cold temperature. 

Some of the recommended dishes are  Assorted Sushi (P428), a nigirzhushi of salmon, tuna, ika, kani, tamago, uni, tako, and ebi. Served with wasabi and lemon; and Tonkotsu Ramen (P358), broth cooked slowly for 48 hours. Choice of either Shoyu, Miso or Shio soup base.

Included in the Tempura Menu are Mixed Tempura (P298), Ebi, Kisu, Kani, Dory, Sweet Potato, Eggplant and Okra; Vegetable Kakiage (P288), a variety of thinly sliced vegetables with Ebi and Ika; and Assorted Vegetable Tempura (P178), Shitake, Green Bell Pepper, Sweet Potato, Eggplant, Okra, Onion and Carrots.

A bowl (P529) of U.S. Wagyu Rice or U.S. Wagyu Bacon Rice is good for 3 persons. 

At P298-P308, you can have your Hamubagu - Shinjuku (Wafu steak with Japanese gravy), Tsukiji (Wafu with wasabi cream), Marunouchi (Wafu katsu curry), Roppongi (Wafu with mushroom gravy), and Ueno (Wafu curry).

Do you love Anime Burgers (P298)? Try Mazinger Z (Chili and jalapeños) and Daimos California (Kani and onion rings).

An Ala Carte (P399) has Beef Misono, Mixed Tempura, Tonkatsu/Torikatsu, Chicken Teriyaki served with Tofu Miso Soup and Iced Tea. Group Bento (P1,596) is a combination of Mixed Tempura, Torikatsu/Tonkatsu, Beef Misono and Chicken Teriyaki served with 4 Miso Soup, 4 Gohan and 4 Bottomless Iced Tea comes with Yasai Itame and Sashimi.
