Veg Finds II: Greens Restaurant & Cafe

So I’ve decided to turn my vegetarian restaurant finds into a series of posts. Part I was Agico Vegetarian Cafe. In addition to Maginhawa & Marikina, we will now try to discover all of the Sam-friendly restaurants @ Tomas Morato & the rest of New Manila! Our new find this week is Greens Vegetarian Restaurant & Cafe at Scout Castor St., near Tomas Morato, Quezon City. My main reason for paying a visit to this restaurant was the Vegan BBQ meal. For P100 you get two sticks of juicy vegan barbecue, java rice, and atchara. It definitely did not disappoint. I can’t be too sure because it’s been 4 years since my last pork barbecue but I think it tasted pretty legit.

Aside from the barbeque, I also ordered the sisig. This was one of their bestsellers so I had to give it a try. Contrary to popular opinion, Continue reading


Maginhawa Adventures: Fruili Trattoria

After dessert at A Taste of Heaven Milkshake Hub, we decided to have lunch at Friuli’s.

It took a while before we actually got to order because there were so many pizza choices (and there were actually more than two veg-friendly ones yay!) We settled for the mushroom pizza (P 185). It was pretty good but I think it would have been better if we ordered one of the bestsellers. Rookie mistake on my part. The price was puwede na because they were pretty generous with the ingredients (especially the cheese! Yum!)

A Taste of Heaven Milkshake Hub, Maginhawa

A Taste of Heaven Milkshake Hub

I think I know why they call it A Taste of Heaven…. because their milkshakes are to die for. Harhar. I know what you are thinking, comedy isn’t really my thing and I should just stick to blogging. Yup, okay. Good idea. A Taste of Heaven Milkshake Hub, Maginhawa Well, we only decided to visit this place because someone told Joel that the milkshakes here are better than the ones at Starr’s. I LOVE the milkshakes at Starr’s so I definitely had to check this place out.

Bowling Alley at the UP Diliman Alumni Center

Cheap Finds: UP Bowling Alley

After visiting the sunflowers, we decided to pass by the UP Alumni Center, where the bowling alley is located (full address and directions located below). As was to be expected of a weekday afternoon, the place was packed and all of the lanes were occupied.

This place is absolutely adorable. It’s definitely far from your conventional bowling alley. They use duckpins and small wooden bowling balls. The floors aren’t always perfectly flat so your ball may not always go the right way. You also have to manually record your scores. You don’t even need to brig socks because bowling shoes aren’t necessary! Continue reading


Sunshine on a Rainy Day: U.P. Sunflowers

Visited the UP Diliman campus yesterday to see hundreds of sunflowers (the best flower ever!!!) ready for the 2014 Graduation Rites. Once we found the flowers, the rain started pouring! It was pretty crazy because it’s the middle of summer and there we were standing in the middle of a downpour. Despite everything, the sunflowers were definitely worth the trip.
