Comfort Food Straight From Grandmomma's Kitchen

COMFORT FOOD — that for me, most often than not, directly translates to succulent pieces of meat, fatty bits – the sinful stuff. Recently we tried this meek restaurant at Il Terrazzo Mall, Tomas Morato. A place that’s called Grandmomma’s Kitchen where they serve some palatable comfort food that’s very simple, all in a laid back, casual dining setup.

This is their Roast Beef — sinful, succulent pieces of meat with the fatty bits melting in your mouth served with a rich mushroom gravy that compliments the flavor packed meat pieces. Simple, slow cooked goodness with every bite.

Affordable Buffet Fix: Primero Casa Filipino at Quezon City

A charming house that’s converted to a restaurant, and an affordable buffet fix at that. Primero Casa Filipino is just a few blocks away from Tomas Morato. The facade of the restaurant is admirable and some may even think of it as an events place, but it’s a buffet place that won’t hurt your wallet, definitely worth checking out.

Two of my favorite things from the Buffet; Angus Beef Kare-Kare and Porb BBQ Ribs, both sinfully good.

The place is formerly known as Chef Laudico’s Casa Filipino, and since the Laudicos are not affiliated with the restaurant anymore, they’ve got a new Chef and totally revamped the buffet spread. For those of you that tried it before, with the Laudico’s dishes, you might want to give this place another try, a much deserved return trip to see what’s changed.

Undiscovered Gem: LoLa Cafe + Bar at Quezon City

I’ve been doing food trips long before I started this blog, usually we go to an area and try a bunch of restaurants there. Recently we did another one and did some scouting along the Tomas Morato area and chanced upon this undiscovered gem of a restaurant. The place is called LoLa Cafe + Bar and it’s just gorgeous. It’s a mom-and-pop kind of restaurant that serves really nice comfort food.

Fleur De Lys to Cheer Me Up

Since I was a bit frustrated of the results of my first try at food photography (thought I could’ve done better) I was in desperate need of comfort food to cheer me up so I dragged my friends and head to Fleur De Lys at Tomas Morato, Quezon City. Nothing beats yummy pastry, a cup of coffee, and good chit-chat with friends πŸ˜€
