Angel’s Kitchen ♥ ♥


And who doesn’t know yet about Angel’s Kitchen? The homey, cozy place on Connecticut Street. I don’t go to the Greenhills area much, but when I do, it’s always Angel’s Kitchen.


angel's kitchen


There’s just something about the place that relaxes you. Food is reliable, tastes like home.


I love their liver pate. It’s complimentary. Ask for lots and lots.


I’ve tried many of the items on the menu, mostly signature dishes, and a few other ordinary ones such as…


Mushroom Cappuccino – which I find watery and bland


Pinakbet Rice with Lechon Kawali and Chocolate Bagoong Sauce – pork is dry and tough


Longaniza Bolognese – sweet and salty


Mandarin Chicken – tangy and orangey


Crispy Steamed Dory with Asparagus, Leeks, Shiitake Mushrooms – simple and healthy


After probably 6 visits, I’ve concluded my very own signature dishes.

So this is what my Angel’s Kitchen meal looks like.


I always start with a salad…

Soft Shell Crab with Mango Poppy Seed Dressing – crisp, crunchy, sweet and tangy


When I’m feeling meat…

Lamb Curry with Apple Raisin Chutney – rich and flavorful, always, always hits the spot


And when I’m feeling fish…

Parmesan and Caesar Glaze Dory – because you can never go wrong with cheese and bacon. Never.



Their coffee and desserts are okay, but not to-die-for.


Banana Cream Pie




Brewed Coffee


But that is why there’s a UCC next door. Smile

Starbucks Black Sesame Green Tea Frap ♥ ♥ ♥


I’m a Starbucks Signature Hot Chocolate kind of girl, but this month I have a new favorite.

I love black sesame on anything.

Thank you, Jay!

Some branches give you more sesame than the others. Make sure you ask the barista for more.

Batting eyelashes always works. Winking smile

Casa Armas, Revisited ♥ ♥


casa armas


Whenever my Taipei and Vancouver-based cousins Cherry and Johnny come to visit, their first request is always Filipino food, and then Spanish food.

We have both today.

I know, I know. They will be staying for almost two weeks, but they just couldn’t wait.

Okay, fine. It’s me who couldn’t wait. Hehehe. Smile with tongue out

So exactly four hours after our late lunch feast of crispy pata, squid tactics, laing and bowls and bowls of garlic rice at Bistro Remedios, we find ourselves at Casa Armas, pigging out again on pork and rice.

But first, some tapas.


Salpicao – succulent beef tenderloin cubes in olive oil and garlic. Love the garlic bits.


Calamares a la plancha con alioli – grilled squid with creamy alioli and calamansi.
Danny’s favorite!


Chorizo Frito – delectable Spanish sausage fried in olive oil


Croquetas de Jamon – creamy ham croquettes. These are really yummy.


And then, The Pig.

The lady chops it up with a plate. So brutal!


Oh, you poor, delicious piggy!


Paella Negra.
Damn you, little clam, for poisoning me.


Now that’s a Les Roches graduate and Director and Co-Founder at Enderun.
Gracias por la cena deliciosa, Danny! Smile
(Oh he is so gonna kill me for posting this pic)


Many of the wines we wanted are unavailable so we end up with this bottle.
Solar De Carrión Rioja


Flan al Carmelo – caramel custard. Leche flan on steroids.


Pijama – custard, peaches, vanilla ice cream


Yes to the food.

No to the poisoning.


Me, Danny, Jill, Cherry, Johnny
