Wicked Kitchen’s Gluttony Dessert

My first impression of Wicken Kitchen is that it is a restaurant that specializes in spicy cuisine. Apparently that was not the case.

A Taste of Baja in Manila?

The promise of Baja is to serve authentic Mexican food like what you would enjoy in Baja, Mexico. Take the Burritos for example. The Carne Asad Burrito is served with just beef and vegetables wrapped in 7in. soft tortilla. The most frequently asked questions are: “Where are the rice and beans in the burrito?” and “Is this really how they serve it in Baja?”

Ravioli Fresh Pasta in Food Court

When you are in Robinsons Galleria, don’t miss eating at Ravioli in the Food Court. Ravioli is the latest food court stall that serves fresh pasta, following the successful formula of Chef Arbeli in Megamall.

145F Prime Steaks

145o Fahrenheit Prime Steaks & Seafood is becoming the standard for steaks in the Quezon City area. Located in the busy Il Terrazzo Mall near ABS-CBN, most of the foodies I’ve met raved about their steaks. People are especially raving about their signature 145o Tomahawk Chop – US Angus 46 Oz (P3,900 +10% sc), which is good for sharing with up to 4 people. The restaurant is named after the temperature required for cooking steaks slowly to medium rare perfection.
