My family always treats me for my Birthday month. It was my Ate's turn today. We went to Phoenix Court, Bellevue Hotel in Alabang. I was with Gilly, Ate's daughter and Tita Portia. The place was packed!
Our lunch menu:
Chilled Jellyfish with Century Egg & Honey Pork
Steamed Prawn Dumpling
Steamed Mixed Vegetable Dumpling
Steamed Pork & Shrimp Siomai
Wintermelon Soup with Seafood
Hot & Sour Soup
Pan Fried Beef Tenderloin Black Pepper
Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet
Sauteed Pork Rib with Barbecue Sauce
Braised Bean Curd with Chinese Mushroom and Oyster Sauce
Green Vegetables with two Kinds of Eggs
Sauteed Bokchoy with Garlic
Yang Chow Fried Rice
Chilled mango Sago
There was so much food, we were not able to finish the whole lot! We went to Manila Memorial Cemetery in Sucat after lunch to visit my Dad and my Grandma whose death anniversaries fall on August and also to say hello to my Mom... my birthday moment with her.
You think my day was over? Not by a long shot. Tita Portia and I did not want to eat dinner at home so we went to our favorite Filipino restaurant, Mesa, Greenbelt 5.
Our usual fare, Prawns in Red Egg Sauce
Inihaw na Liempo
Pork Sinigang in Guava and Pineapple.
I loved the soup! A different kind of sinigang. Again the serving was huge, good for 4-5 people. This time I really could not finish it so I brought home a doggy bag! Hahaha Not for Wriggly but for myself.
You think I am done with my gastronomical indulgences already? Well .... lastly... I bought a Twix Ice Cream Bar from Rustan's Greenbelt.
AAAAhhhhh .... so good but so bad because it was so sweet.
