Weekend Food Tripping at: Bigbys Cafe and Restaurant

Me and my hubby had it full for late lunch so we weren't expecting to dine anywhere "heavy". But when I got a text message from Paul & Joe's Cathy on the sale at the Megatrade Hall, I have to stock up on some P&J goodies, so me and the wonderful hubby went to SM Megamall. After long walks, I remembered my dearest friends Beatrilicious and Shannaholic were raving about the new restaurant opened at the Atrium of the mall. Bigby's Cafe and Restaurant. There are known to be a restaurant who serves "worldwide" dishes, but seriously? I felt like TGIF all over again!

Here's the nice paper mat that greets us from around the globe!

The lovely interior that screams Creativity!
I love the ambiance!

Tiki Wacky Chicken Salad
Php295 (approx $6.00)

A chunky and heartwarming treat with tomatoes,
Yellow mango, grapes, walnuts, cheese, croutons
and creamy chicken salad on top of fresh romaine lettuce

Cheese Quesadillas

FREE for above
Php500 (approx $11.00) order

Triple Crunch Platter

Php369.00 (approx $7.50)

An appetizer that includes tic-tac rolls or vegetable rolls,
nachos and sweet onion loops

I think the food is just so so, but what I seriously love? The friendliness of the staff and their knowledge on the food they serve! Though it was a cholesterol and fat blowout, it's a nice change. I think this place would be wonderful for group of colleagues or friends or even families! Don't forget this is also a great place for lovers *winks*

Oh yeah, I went to the CCIP Pilipinas ang Ganda Mo! Cosmetics Fair 2009 at the SM Megatrade Hall, I bought a couple of stuffs I will share soon for you to know what's to expect for more product reviews! Oh yeah, there's so many discounts going on for products like L'oreal, Garnier, Maybelline, Paul & Joe, Suesh, HBC, etc...!!! I'm not sure though if they still have enough stocks as they're almost out on most stuffs I want yesterday! Today's the last day my dear Philippine Readers, so if you're off to SM Megamall, do visit the Megatrade Hall, entrance is free anyways, nothing to lose! :D

If you get the chance to go here are my tips:

1. grab on L'oreal Elseve Hair masks for only Php70.00 (less than $2.00)!
2. purchase Maybelline mascara for only Php100.00 (approx $2.50), but I guess the non-waterproofs are the ones left!
3. grab on some Maybelline eyestudio eyeshadow quad for around Php200+ (approx $4-5).
4. if you plan to buy a Suesh brush set, they have a stall there and they deduct Php100-200 on their regular prices online! What's better? You get to see and touch the products!
5. Garnier "at home" hair color treatment for Php100.00 (approx $2.50)
6. Selected Paul & Joe products for 50% off!
7. Scents like Maria Sharapova, FCUK for 50% off or the rest are 30% off!
8. Grab some snacks! They have Filipino dishes, Italian buffet and some hotdog sandwiches! yum!!!

Enjoy your weekend!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
