Weekend Food Tripping at: Cheesecake Etc...

I won a Php1,000 (approx $23.00) gift certificate of Cheesecake Etc. from Girlfriend Mag. (Thanks Sab for the mag and I learned about this through you)

The first thought was, OK we'll have it "to go" as I can't imagine myself stuffing Cheesecake worth Php1,000!

And when I asked for a menu, me and hubby decided to SIT DOWN! Just look at the menu! I didn't even know they serve that much variety!

Page for Cakes

Appetizers, Sandwiches, Pastas and Rice Meals

Coffee, Tea, Soda and Fruit Juices

And let's talk about our orders. Actually the waiter got our order all wrong, we told him we want our sandwich to be sided with an Egg Salad, and he took note on an Egg Salad Order as Appetizer. Well, we did not gave him a hard time and we took the order anyways. Hubby loves egg. So he's happy! :P

Egg Salad topped with Cheese
Php115.00 (approx $2.50)
(we added this into our sandwich below...yummooo)

Turkerrific Sandwhich
Low Fat Smoked Turkey Ham with Cranberry Jelly
Php215.00 (approx $4.80)

This is how it looks like inside
Wheat Bread - I heart
Lettuce - I heart
Turkey Meat - I heart
Cranberry - I heart
Egg salad on side - Hubby Hearts :D

Fettuccine Carbonara
Classic White Sauce topped with Bacon Bits and Cheese
Php175.00 (approx $3.90)

    Erica, it's just the location and city! :) It's always equal to how much a person earns :)

    Alyssa, cost of living in the PHilippines is really low, because of low salary wages, everything is just cheaper here when compared to the States :)
