Weekend Food Tripping: at Aristocrat Restaurant and a Post X'mas Gift!

Christmas, New Years...
Definitely a lot of food tripping! :)
When it comes to BBQ, there's only one place that I really crave for!
Aristocrat Restaurant!

Aristocrat restaurant is known or it's Chicken BBQ, and a lot of other Filipino dishes. In my case, I love their Lumpiang Shanghai (Filipino Spring Rolls). Of course, I ate here with husband's family! So don't be shocked with all the food photo I have as you scroll down :)

My Favorite
Lumpiang Shanghai
Php234.00 (approx $4.90) for 9 pcs

This is my ultimate favorite, it smells a bit funky but it tastes heavenly,
I can eat like 3 of these!!!

Pork Spareribs with Java Rice
Whole order
Php303.00 (approx $7.00)

Not the fatty one or boney ones like most that I've tried

Aristocrat Pork Barbeque with Java Rice
Php150.00 (approx $3.20)

BBQ? Pork? On Stick? Need I say more?

Aristocrat Chicken Barbeque
Php195.00 (approx $4.00)

This is my ultimate favorite Chicken BBQ
The chicken is scrumptuous,
the JAVA sauce that goes with this tastes so good togethere
They're definitely Husband and Wife!

Boneless Chicken Barbeque
(for the lazies) lol
Php149.00 (approx $3.20)

If you are on a date and you still want your POISE
This is the best meal! LOL

Crispy Fish (forgot the name, sorry)
Forgot the price too :( Another sorry

You know why?
Coz it's Forgettable!

This looks super crunchy and yummy but it lacks marinate
I love the sauce though! I could drink it! hehehe

Last but not the least,
Gulaman Sago Drink!
Php55.00 (approx $1.25)

What is Gulaman Sago Drink?
(answer taken from Pinoy Recipe)

Sago’t Gulaman is a very popular refreshment. In restaurants it is served in a tall, footed glass, in neighborhood stores it is ladled into plastic cups and in street stands it is simply poured into plastic bags and provided with straw. It can be taken as an after-meal beverage-dessert, a snack or a drink to accompany another merienda item. Sago itself is also seen in Tahu, Ginataan and Ginumis while gulaman which is made from seaweed called agar-agar can be eaten as a gelatin dessert with or without fruits.


Today has been super hectic for me. I did make-up for one who has an engagement and her mom! Photos will be up soon! :)

I also went home to visit my brother as he'll be flying back to Shanghai Monday *sadness* and I want to spend more time with him so I had lunch at home. I also went to Greenhills shopping center after months!!! There's still so many people!! I can't believe people still have money! LOL

When I got back home, I was surprised to see a package waiting for me. Why? Because it's Saturday, the postal office has been closed for a week for the Holidays, so I am not expecting anything.

It was a nice surprise as I am quite tired today. I got a post Christmas present from my friend Toma!

The card note is super sweet. I felt really touched that she took time to know the ULTA e/s shades I chose when I joined her monthly contest several months ago. I really love these shadows and I can't believe she sent me these.

Thank you so much for the lovely present and the lovely note :)

Cute Kitty Notebook
A cute oval magnetic frame
3 Ulta New formula e/s - Plum Noir, Galaxy and Calla Lily

Thanks for brightening my year!
Ooohhhh I'm going back to work on Monday :(
