Sometimes I enjoy being alone in the mall as I get to do anything I want without worrying about my companion getting bored or not liking it. I can watch movies that MB would otherwise frown upon (such as chick flicks) or eat/try out new things. I had one such day when I watched New Year’s Eve. I ordered potato munchers from Taters and Nacho Mama from Eat My GF (garlic fries) for my movie snacks. Here are the nachos:


I asked for takeout because I’ll be bringing this to GB1 where I’ll be watching. I wasn’t very impressed with the preparation. The veggies used were not that fresh. I had to ask the girl who was preparing the food to remove all the black parts of the carrot. I also asked her to remove the hard parts of the lettuce. For the bean paste, I don’t know why she had to rub it all over the cardboard tray. All the “toppings” were in the bottom and only the cheese was served as a topping. This included tomatoes and black olives. You just can’t see them because, well, they’re underneath the nachos. The taste was ok but eating this in a dark cinema proved to be challenging. When the nachos ran out, I realized that there were still a lot of toppings. And all along I thought I already ate all of them. They were stuck to the corner of the cardboard. Such a waste. This costs around Php100, more or less. Sorry, I can’t remember. Also, the brown bag was really tacky. The contents of the tray will surely spill if you’re not careful, thus the toppings sticking to the corner. If the brown bag gets wet, it will surely tear. I was carrying other things so it was a real hassle bringing this from Food Choice Glorietta 4 to the cinemas at GB1.

For dessert, I had a mint macaron from Bizu:


On another note, here are other food choices from Kim n Chi:

This is Bibimbap which is sooo sulit! It has all sorts of toppings. My only problem with it is everything tasted too sweet. Good thing I ordered kimchi.


The kimchi was good. I ignored the gochujang that came with the bibimbap. I’m also happy to report that the soup is better now. It’s actually pretty tasty and I finished the 2 bowls. The dumplings were a disappointment:


MB and I each had one then I had them wrapped for takeout and gave them to my babies. The dumplings at Kaya still top my list.

It will be 2012 in a few hours. What’s your food trip for tonight?

Because of too much stress, I’ve been having a lot of trouble eating. All I want to eat are sandwiches, vegetable salads and fresh fruit, basically, food that’s easy to eat. But I’m always on the go and I don’t have too much time to prepare my food. Good thing local supermarkets such as SM, Landmark and Rustan’s offer packed healthy meals for busy people such as myself. Here’s one example:


MB bought this for me at the Landmark supermarket for only Php59. Yesterday, I was waiting for my sister to finish her papers so that we can go to the mall together. But it was getting too late and I only ate half a bread for breakfast so I suddenly felt my sugar dropping. I was feeling dizzy and I knew that it was time to eat. By the way, this is the packaging that I was telling you about in my previous Kim n Chi post. The staff sealed the noodles in this box. Cool,  no?


It has lettuce, bacon bits, croutons, Caesar dressing and parmesan cheese. It even has a tiny plastic fork that I didn’t see until I was halfway through the meal. For me, this is the bomb. One box is enough to tide me over until I get my next meal.

Dole keeps coming up with cool products (like the fresh young coconut so that I can have my buco juice fix anytime, or the packed corn and cut apples for snack time). I can’t wait to  see more! Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get my Caesar fix.

Without further ado, here’s the food:


MB got the beef stew bento this time. I just had to have the seafood ramyon again.


I wanted the beef bulgogi but MB made a mistake and ordered the bulgogi omu-rice. I didn’t want to waste money so I settled.

See, I told you the omu-rice servings were gigantic! The rice is inside that roll of egg. I didn’t touch the egg which was covered in catsup and mayo. There were only a few pieces of beef in the bulgogi and tons of noodles. It tasted good but it was too sweet for my taste. To balance out the sweetness, I poured some of the ramyon soup onto my rice. (Pouring soup over rice is a Filipino thing.)

At the end of the meal, I still had some leftover ramyon which MB and I shared for dinner that night and the egg and noodles from my order which I gave to my babies.

Oh, I almost forgot. When I asked that the ramyon be packed for take out, the staff had a problem. They didn’t know how to pack it for takeout. They poured the soup in a flimsy plastic and of course, the shrimp poked holes in it. They even put the plastic in a brown bag and of course that too got soaked. So finally they said they have this machine that can pack the noodles nicely and seal it but I have to add 5 pesos. No problem, as long as my soup is intact. It’s quite a nifty gadget. I’m sorry I forgot to take a photo but you’ll see an identical packaging in my next post.
