Chelsea Market & Cafe@ The Podium, Ortigas, Manila

Our Manila trip was beyond our expectation, indeed. We heard so much about the infamous drivers, the pick pockets, and other "nasty" comments about the city, however, our encounters were all good and we enjoyed the trip in this metropolis. We only took meter taxi, hotel stay and service was tip top, food was good, touring & sightseeing and shopping were all satisfactory!

Our first dinner was settled at Chelsea, a very nice restaurant serving western food opposite our hotel.

We ordered the chef recommended roasted chicken with spices like rosemary, I will rate 8/10 for this dish!

Another nice dish was the seafood spaghetti, I love it 9/10

Last but not least a pizza

We shared these among 4 pax, with one housewine, 2 soft drinks and 1 lemonade, the total damage was PHP 2238/=, approximately RM160.
More or less like KL standard as far as pricing is concerned as this is consider a more posh dining here. Anyway, food was satisfactory!

Home made Sze Chuan Chilli Chicken

We'll be flying off to Manila tonight to attend my love graduation's ceremony. I am so proud of him, as he has achieved his PhD after hard work all these years.
The other day, he cooked some nice Sze Chuan Chilli Chicken at home, as we love the Dragon Eye's version so much!!!
Managed to buy some Sze Chuan pepper and he decided to experiment this dish at home. Very yummy for a non-professional cook, in fact. He first marinated the chicken pieces with salt, pepper, bit of tumeric and chilli powder.
Then, fried the chicken, later, stir fried the chicken pieces with garlic, dry chillies and Sze Chuan pepper, here it goes.....lovely!!!

No Signboard Seafood@ Geylang Singapore

Have been hearing so much about the Singapore famous Chili crab, but I have not tried before even though I have been there so many times. So , this time round, I ensure I check out the most famous chili crab restaurant at Geylang area. Walking around the infamous red light districts made me don't feel like I am in Singpore. Geylang area is flooded with foreign workers, dirty drains, and of course, in the night time - the prostitutes (literally from different age group and race, most of them with super exposure way of dressing, ahem..)- - wow, it was an eye-opener anyway!!!

OK, come back to food - we ordered the famous chili crab - frankly speaking, the crab was super fresh, but then, I don't quite like the sauce, too thick and a bit "eggy" - nothing much to shout about!!!

However, we enjoyed the "man tou" more....

The other two dishes we ordered at No Signboard includes slice fish with ginger and spring onion & stir fried brinjal - they were nice.

Total damage including drinks for 2 pax was SGD 70+, expensive for Malaysian standard anyway....

Sushi Tei@ The Garden

If I remember correctly, it was Yo! Sushi before, and now it has replaced by another Japanese restaurant in the same located in The Garden Mall- Sushi Tei. Competitive out there is too stiff ya, personally I've not tried before, no idea how was the food there. Anyway,service and food are good here at Sushi Tei as compared to other "fast service" Japanese restaurants.

I ordered beef kaminabe set@ RM18.80, I like it!!! Soup is miso soup, thinly sliced beef is tender, satisfactory!

He ordered Karrage curry with rice@RM18.80, nice! Much nicer than Sushi Zanmai version!

We also ordered a soft-shell crab sushi @ RM6.80 to share....good stuff!

I will surely visit this place again, hope they will maintain the standard!!
