Weekend Food Tripping at: Sweet Pea + Happy Mothers' Day to All Moms!

Good morning Sunday!  I hope you wake up refreshed and ready to enjoy the rest of the day!  This weekend, I did nothing but bond with my brother who came for a visit, bonding means shopping and food tripping!  I spent a good dinner time on a Friday night with my mom-in-law for Mother's Day!  

I bought coupons for Sweet Pea by Chef Florabel Co from CashCashPinoy!  I bought 4 coupons of Php250.00 for Php500.00 worth of food and drinks which I find a good deal! 

I have something to admit though, I made a huge mistake and we all went to Burgos Circle instead of McKinley Hill, don't ask me why!  *laughs*  Okay, I'm human!  I made a huge mistake and our stomach had to suffer!  *embarrassed*

The place was packed on a Friday night and we had to wait for 15 minutes or more and finally got our table!  While waiting, I took the liberty to order in advance!

Squash Soup 
Php145.00 (approx $3.35)
I actually finished this up on my own as the family isn't that into creamy soup!
The texture is not as smooth as others I've tried but I would give this one thumbs up sign for the taste!

Crispy Duo
Pph350.00 (approx $8.10)
Crispy pork belly and beef tapa with sweet sauce and spicy vinegar
Crispy beef tapa = bacon!  Crispy pork belly = lechon.  
Well tastes like it if you know what I mean :D

Fried Calamares with Tartar Sauce
Php275.00 (approx $6.40)
My favorite to munch on and the tartar sauce tastes quite good!

Crispy Fish Fillet Roulade
Php295.00 (approx $6.90)
White fish with herb butter, served with curly fries and house salad
Most of the dishes we tried are good but the most unforgettable in our opinion is this!  The fish and herb butter are served perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.   House salad tastes great but not a fan of the curly fries!  It was soggy when served.

US Angus Beef Bellly Shortribs
Php350.00 (approx $8.35)
Served with parsley rice and buttered vegetables
Meaty and juicy!  Sauce is just right to mix with plain rice!  

Baby Back BBQ
Php375.00 (approx $8.70)
Served with corn, yellow rice and house salad
The yellow rice is actually curry flavored rice, I like it as I'm a fan of anything curry!  The pork was served in quite a good serving size and I like the fact that it's mostly lean meat!  For such thick meat, I am quite surprised how juicy it is!

We were quite stuffed, though I wanted to end the gorgeous dinner with desserts, we gave it a skip and went for a walk instead!  Good girl, Nikki!

I'm not impressed with the washroom location.  Each floor has only 1 washroom but the one at the ground floor was temporarily closed that time so we have to walk all the way to the 2nd floor which is a huge re-route! Can you imagine how many people were dining that night with just ONE washroom?  Just saying....

Restaurant accepts cash and credit card.  The company has service charge!  Parking space isn't that big so you have to be patient in looking for a spot!
