Sampling some food inside UST Campus



Not only food chains are present in the campus but also this sorbetes cart, 
and take note how it is named!

Yummy Lychee and Jelly.

The little boy is unusually happy waiting for his order: 
SOMETHING WRAPPED and must be picked with a chopstick! LOL

***


Ice-cold Milk Tea.

Korean Lunch at Seoulia


Kimbap (also Gimbap) which the Little Man declared as his own! He gulped it all the way...

***


The sizzling plate of beef (Bulgogi), tofu, and veges. 

***


Spicy hot noodles (Ramyeon) and some jelly-like sticky slices with egg.
Tita Ann love it!

***


The noodles may be searing red but actually it  has a tempered spicy taste.
Guksu jeongol (Noodle Casserole)

***


Trying out my chopsticks after the Little Man exclaimed 
while deshelving his hair, "Ha? Chopsticks?"

***


The appetizer was a hit. The Little Man grabbed the Okra.

***


The jelly-like not-so-sticky stuff... actually likeable.
Must be Dotorimuk (Acorn jelly)

***


Egg roll. It is admirable layers of eggs wrapping some veges inside.

***


The Red Tea. We loved it.

***


Owning a plate of Kimbap!

Lunching on California Maki and Beef Teriyaki



Eight California Maki for this boy. After a half-day walking tour of the Divisoria, we ended up in the mall there and despite the array of choices, this young man insisted that he will have Sushi and you can't fool him now that he can read and spot photos of something rolled miles away.

Vegetables and beef strips in teriyaki sauce serves two in a hot plate!

Thumbs up to Razon's Halo-Halo




Finely shaved ice (finer than our usual shaved ice, if I may emphasize) that feels like almost an ice cream but of course, it is not because when one's tongue feels the ice, it is still shaved. Perhaps, the savory milk complement the fine ice. Almost one has the heavenly feel already after having the flan, the ice and the milk. But then, one reminds himself not to be content with its "deliciousness" yet 
because one is having a Halo-halo. The surprise should yet to come!

***  


Of course, halo-halo has to have many more underneath the layer of ice and milk. I love this one because even though there is no grand or generous servings of sweetened banana and macapuno (i forgot if it has some beans), even though there is no colored gelatin to entice my eyes, even though there is no ube or tuber taste like camote, there is this fullness in its simplicity.

***



Razon's of Guagua Halo halo is a must try. It should surpass everyone's expectation of halo-halo, 
I guess because it costs a few pesos away from a hundred.
I think Razon's will open at Robinson's Place Bacolod anytime soon 
since I saw a poster of it in one of the stalls.
Guagua is a town in Pampanga.

Cherry apples are mini apples!



With three to four bites, it is all core already. Cherry apple is another nature's offering when one is bored of the usual-sized apples... 


                            @@@


                           @@@


When everyone prefers big and huge, here comes the cherry apple to delight our eyes and renew our interest in apple. Sharp sourness can be passed up because anyway, there are three bites available only...
