GAYUMA in Sikatuna?

Two nights ago, my younger brother Jericho went home with a flier.  A flier from Gayuma ni Maria, The Lifestyle Restaurant.  I could not believe it at first.  I Asked him: “Is it the same as the one in Esteban Abada, Xavierville?”  My bro said: “Yep, indeed it is.”

So, good news neighbors and fans of Gayuma.  The Lifestyle Restaurant is now along Maginhawa Street, Sikatuna Village.  25 – 50 meters away from Save More Supermart.

Try their Tuliro, a bed of nachos and lettuce topped with braised beef slivers and a succulently sinful sour cream and cheese dip.

Regulars from the old branch knows their popular cakes such as Pavlova and Better Than Sex (B.T.S.) cakes.  By the way, (B.T.S.) is now known as Beats Sex Anyday (B.S.A.), a rich chocolate mercilessly toppped with butterscotch, cream and chocolate bits.  Some say it should be named Best With Sex.  I don’t think so though.  But, if you’re a sadomasochist and would like to gag with thick chocolate, it’s up to you. lol

Try it out and let me know.

Crave Burger, or Goodburgers?

Good news, neighbors.  Crave Burger is in the hood.  Actually, it’s old news because their cashier said they started operation about a month ago.  I did not have my camera when I passed.  So, I don’t have photos to show.  Anyway, they are open daily from 11:00H – 24:00H.  You can find them at 154 Maginhawa Street, Sikatuna Village, Quezon City.  Here’s their number for more info: 435-4088 / 400-3690.  Should you decide to drop by, try their Crave Ultimate Burger.

As most my friends know, I love burgers.  It is probably one of the reasons why I can’t stay a vegetarian.  Today, I am craving for one, maybe two, belly busting burger.  Eating a vegan burger at 162 Maginhawa, Goodburgers, is an option.  But, do I really like to eat the same “healthy burger” again?  I’m really tempted to give in to my authentic, beef craving.  By the way, should you decide to drop by Goodburgers Maginhawa, try their Margherita or Persian Burger.  Call them at 435-4663 for more details.

So, stick with GOODBURGERS or support the new burger joint in the hood, CRAVE BURGER?  One more thing, I’m searching for the biggest and tastiest burger in the Philippines.  Any suggestions?

FREE Wellness Activities @ QC Circle

An exercise tip: If you really intend to run, join a marathon and avoid venues with too much cafes or restaurants.

When was the last time you visited the Quezon City Circle?  For better photos, click here.  My late father brought me and my siblings there during our childhood for bike rides.  During that time, that was the only activity available.  Now, they have more activities to offer.  Aerobics and ballroom classes, badminton, basketball, etc.  They even got Nestle to host Free wellness activities all around the monument’s compound.  Below are the list of venues where Nestle provide their free wellness activities.  I’ll just let the photo speak for itself, ayt?

To enlarge photo, click it.

At 6 in the morning, today, my mom asked me to drive for my youngest brother.  She asked me to bring him there for his daily exercise.  I obliged with the intention of doing my own physical activity which is running and walking the dog. 

Arrived there five minutes after, paid 15 pesos for the parking, and went to our preferred exercise activity.  As you may already know, before any running takes place, you need to warm up.  So, I walked.  I probably walked too much because I ended up not running but having an early breakfast at one of my father’s favorite restos. 

How can one focus with too many distractions?  With these kinds of places, do people come here to work out or eat out?  What would you do?

Big Better Burgers

Big Better Burgers now open in SM Cubao, Quezon City.

Most of my friends know that I love hamburgers.  In fact, I am in search of the best, biggest, and tastiest burgers in town.  So, if you have one let me know.  Post a comment of your favorite burger or burger joint in town and let’s dine in and grab a bite.

Big Better Burgers are reasonably priced.  It may be more expensive than your usual fastfood burger, but I guarantee the taste is substandard.  This, I believe should be the standard for all burgers.

I tried their Fish Fillet Sandwich.  Payed 130 pesos for it and went home satisfied.  I tried to put condiments such as ketchup, hot sauce and mustard.  No need for all those.  For the sandwich already tastes great with its own sauce.

Let me know if you are in the vicinity.  Let’s dine in together.

Merienda and Surfing at Cafe Quezon

When it is this hot in your neighborhood, or wherever you are, what do you do to stay cool?  Fortunately for me there are air-conditioned restos near my home.  One of them that I recently visited is Cafe Quezon.  It’s located at #179 Maginhawa St., Sikatuna Village, Quezon City.  Their telephone numbers are 928-8534 and +63 920-961-5256.

Music here is very relaxing and food price is reasonable.  I like the fact that they have wifi.  Where, I believe, most restos can’t do without.  My dear friend Ron, I hope you’re reading this. hahaha.  Before you are allowed to use their wifi, your tab must have a minimum amount of 150 bucks.  Nowadays, 150 is a very small amount. 

This is an incomplete  menu, I just want to show you their prices and what they are offering.

Now that’s how the place looks like from the inside.  If you are in Sikatuna or Teacher’s Village, I encourage you to pass by. 

When you have tried out this place, please let me know what your experience was.
