Kenny Rogers Roasters


After our workout, Mark and I went to Robinsons Place to have our dinner. Since we just had our workout, we thought of having something that is healthy but still delicious. With this in mind, our feet brought us to Kenny Rogers. :D

Mark got what he usually gets every time we dine at Kenny Rogers, the Grilled Fish Fillet. :p The dish includes a grilled fish fillet (cream dory I think), a choice of regular side dish, and garlic rice. The grilled fish is well seasoned and is made more delectable with the sauce that came with it. For the side dish, Mark chose macaroni and cheese.

Grilled Fish Fillet - Php195.00

The workout got me all hungry and I wasn't really minding all the calories that time so I got the Burger Steak. :p The dish includes a 1/3-pound grilled beef patty topped with sliced mushrooms and gravy, a choice of regular side dish, and plain rice. I've tried this dish before and it kept me coming back. The beef patty is grilled giving it a distinct, fuller taste. It's juicy and slightly oily but who cares, that's where the flavors are! Haha! For the side dish, I always choose mashed potato with gravy, but that time I was craving for chicken macaroni. :)

Ramen Night and Chill-out Night

After our lunch, we headed to the hotel to freshen up and get ready for our Manila Bay dinner cruise. We were all set, complete with our dinner clothes, just to be notified that the cruise schedules for the day were all cancelled due to the bad weather. The rain has actually stopped but the waters aren't calm and so they had to cancel the cruises. :(

Though a bit disappointed, we still didn't want the cancelled cruise to ruin our long weekend so we thought of an alternative thing to do for the night. We went to Robinsons Place Manila to search for a place for dinner. After a few scouring, we decided to try out Ajisen Ramen.

The staff greeted us in Japanese and ushered us to our seats. After going through the menu, Mark and I both decided to have their house specialty for dinner, no other than ramen! Hehe :p

I was eying for the Ajisen Ramen, but since Mark already chose that, I just went for the Seafood Ramen. We also got one order of the Enoki Maki.

Their ramen all have the same imported Japanese ingredients in their soup and noodles, each one just differs with the main ingredient that come with it. According to the menu, their ramen has Ajisen oil which enhances the taste of their white pork broth, Okinawa natural seasalt, Ajisen powder which gives their ramen its unique flavor, and finally, the ramen noodles which are made out of 100% whole wheat which is cooked to an al-dente texture.

Ajisen Ramen - Php 235.00

The Ajisen Ramen has pork barbecue, leeks, boiled egg, cabbage, and fungus. The Seafood Ramen has assorted seafood (shrimps, crab sticks, fish balls), fungus, and cabbage.

Bistro Ravioli

After my MOA adventure with Mark, we headed to Robinsons Place to meet with his mom for dinner.

After going to and from every floor of the Midtown Wing in search for a place to dine, we finally agreed in trying out Bistro Ravioli. We were all first timers, so Mark and I just took charge of the orders. Ravioli was not in our choices that time, maybe because of our bad experience on raviolis at Spaghetti Factory. But I still remember how much I loved Red Coconut's ravioli though. :p

Now back to the orders. :p Mark's mom wanted to have chicken for dinner and was insisting that we get the Diablo wings, but being not so much into spicy food, Mark just ordered their herb chicken. The dish comes in 3 chicken wings fried to perfection with fries and gravy. The dish may look ordinary but the chicken wings were just flavorful and large too. I enjoyed munching on the chicken wing even without the gravy.

Herb Chicken - Php 235.00

Mark wanted some pasta and was looking at the pasta choices when he asked me what to get. We both went adventurous that day and opted for the Chicken Pesto Spaghetti. The pesto spaghetti was just like any other pesto, what made this dish stand out was the grilled chicken. The generous amount of grilled chicken chunks were juicy and tender to the bite and were made more delectable by the tomato salsa...perfect match for the pesto. Mark and I both loved this dish. The dish also comes with garlic toasts.

Chicken Pesto Spaghetti - Php 370.00

Another hit was the Italian Sausage and Bacon pizza. The 12-inch thin crust pizza was brick-oven-baked, making it more delectable. The crust was crispy yet still managed to be soft and chewy on the inside. It also had a spicy kick because of the chili flakes.

Italian Sausage and Bacon Pizza - Php 365.00

For the spicy food lovers, like Tita Juliet's friend who were with us, this will surely be an eye candy. :p

Habanero Pepper Sauce and Chili Flakes

We all enjoyed our dinner. Aside from the good food, the service is also commendable. Our first time at Bistro Ravioli will definitely not be our last! :)

Healthy Shabu-Shabu


After the pre-judging event in the competition that Mark joined in last Sunday, we headed to Robinsons Place Manila for lunch.

Mark got exhausted from all the flexes and poses that he felt really hungry and wanted to eat badly haha! We were considering a lot of restaurants until Mark suggested that we try it out at Healthy Shabu Shabu.

Not having the slightest idea of what to order, we opted for 2 individual sets of shabu shabu, one fish fillet set and one beef tenderloin set. A few minutes later, the waiting staff poured a hot soup from the pot and handed us a small bowl of broth, an egg, a saucer of garlic, chili, and spring onions, and a small saucer of alamang (shrimp paste).

Then came 2 plates with corn, tofu, mushroom, noodles, meatballs, crab sticks, and vegetables.

We were then served with a plate of fish fillet and beef tenderloin slices.

Knowing that we still have to cook our food and since Mark is really hungry but still needs to retain his shape for the competition, he suggested that we get one rice topping.

Since I know how to cook, I took care of the shabu shabu, while Mark took care of eating, immediately after the rice topping was served haha!

The dish was served with a generous amount of bite sized chicken breasts with sunny-side-up egg on top of Japanese rice. The chicken was tender and goes well with the teriyaki sauce.

We also got 2 glasses of bottomless iced tea, which Mark drank immediately even before I could take a picture of it. :P

The shabu shabu was ready when we finished eating the rice topping. Mark and I both opted not to put the alamang. I then added in the egg for the final touch. Both dish looked pale but tasted so good!

I was getting curious at how the dish would taste like if I put the alamang so I placed a small amount of it on my bowl and guess what? It made the dish more delectable! Hahaha! What we both thought of as alamang was chili sauce all along! Hahaha! And so I put all of the sauce in the pan of soup and brought it to a boil.

I'm not a fan of spicy dishes but this one was just right for me.

Mark and I both loved the dishes. We also enjoyed our experience and will definitely try out other shabu shabu restaurants. :)
