    Songkran: Thailand's gateway in BF Homes

    by nixca316 Updated Jun 24, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    This restaurant belongs to the family of restaurants with different themes found in Aguirre Avenue(i.e. Le Souk and Alma de Cuba) and it offers you authentic Thai food at an affordable price.

    Songkran(สงกรานต์ It literally means astrological passage or a portal that could bring you to another dimension) Restaurant was named after the famous festival in Thailand, though different in origin, is similar to the way the feast of St. John the Baptist is celebrated in the Philippines.

    The place looks good has a welcoming atmosphere that you can feel very relaxed there.

    Service? The people are very, very nice.

    Favorite Dish: I don't have a favorite yet, but the food is OK. The plating still has room for improvement, but they are not bad to look at and the ones I ordered taste good too.

    My favorite Thai restaurant is still People's Palace at Greenbelt 3, but this place is OK too.

    I think I can compare the prices of their dishes to Oody's, but Sen Lek is still more affordable.

    Cash and Credit Cards are accepted

    Senlek Thai Noodles: Affordable Thai Food

    by nixca316 Updated Jun 24, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For lack of a better term, I think I could call this a Thai Diner. Maybe I could even call it a kiosk, but I think it's slightly bigger than a kiosk, but its atmosphere is like that of a restaurant.

    Like in a fast-food eatery or restaurant, you should order and pay first before you sit down. Since the place is rather small compared to the crowd that goes there, my advise is, if you have at least one companion with you, to let one person go ahead to the booth or table of your choice.

    The food is very affordable here and if you eat light, the price per person could go down to just slightly higher than a dollar or maybe two, depending on what you will drink.

    Favorite Dish: The noodle soups are mixed with herbs and spices that will give you a fresh feeling inside. Their Thai Milk and the Green Tea concoctions are very delicious.

    Pito and Mita: Where family and friends feel at HOME

    by nixca316 Updated Jan 9, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Paolo Dela Fuente and Pia Kasilag (OM and Chef)

    "It is with utmost regret that we inform you all that Pito & Mita Restaurant is closing its doors effective Monday, January 16, 2012. Thank you very much for your patronage and support over the last year and a half. It has been our pleasure to serve you the way we know how.

    We hope to still be able to see you before formally closing after dinner, this Sunday. We would also like to let you know that we will continue accepting food orders and small catering requests even beyond January 15. Just contact Pia Kasilag at +63917.555.3153 for any inquiries.

    Thank you again for your continued support. God bless you all!" :(

    Pito and Mita was conceptualized by the brother and sister tandem of Paolo Dela Fuente, who asks acts as the Operation Manager and Pia Dela Fuente-Kasilag, the chef. They too are the owners.

    It is short for Papito and Mamita, terms of endearment for their parents.

    The place is like "your home away from home."

    I don't know about you, but no matter how great your mother is in the kitchen when you were little (well, my mom is one of the best cooks I know), whenever you eat at a neighbor's house you feel like eating at a five star restaurant. On the other hand, when you're grownup and in a foreign country, you would long for your mother's cooking.

    Pito and Mita caters to both of those emotions and so much more.

    It has a homey atmosphere, but the food served is like that of a five star restaurant. It's almost like "mom's cooking"too, if you catch my drift.

    Taste wise, it is comparable to the best cuisines all over the world.

    Besides Mediterranean dishes, they also serve Asian dishes.

    They have two function rooms (1 room can accomodate 15 pax and another can accomodate 10 pax) that can be used for meetings or small get-togethers...or you can use the whole area for a mini party. :)



    Operating hours:
    Lunch - 12:00 - 2:30pm
    Dinner - 6:00pm - 10pm
    EVERYDAY

    Favorite Dish: Wow! I can now say that this restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants in the Parañaque City area. I have been dining there almost every week. Some people even asked me if I own the place or at least, a part owner. No, I'm not. I just love the place...and of course, the food and the service. Having great caring owners adds icing to the already delicious cake!

    Lately, I have been dining outside my hometown so I rarely visit this place, but they are always in my thoughts because it's really a nice and cozy place with good food to match.

    Every dish that we eat mouthwatering. Just look at the pictures. I may not be a great photographer, but I must say that the food does not only look good, they really taste good too!

    My favorites are the Eggplant Lasagna and the Parmesan Crusted Baked Fish.

    My mom "hates" artichokes so I did not tell her that the dip was made of spinach and artichoke the first time we wen t there. She kept on dipping the melba toast and even finished it. After finishing it I finally told her that what it was made of. She couldn't believe it. It was so delectable. It's "to die for"!.

    The tomato moringa dish is a great vegetarian delight.

    Ok, I'm not really vegetarian, but I have made a pact not to eat beef and pork because... :)
    so that pasta dish is a welcome treat.

    They also have cakes and other items I have yet to try.

    Every week they have specials that you could look forward to.

    Last Friday, 29 July 2011, they launched Pito's originals (recipes he inherited from his ancestors).

    So what are you waiting for?

    Come visit them at 176 Aguirre Avenue, BF Homes, Parañaque City!

    They also have delivery (87878) and as of late, they accept major credit and debit cards.

    ;)

    Toho Restaurant Antigua since 1888: Affordable AUTHENTIC Chinese Food

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 24, 2011

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Natalie, one of the owners of the restaurant (I don't know her Chinese name) really knows her stuff...she knows how to bake and is familiar with the traditions of her family...sometimes, she's a bit shy, but she tries her best to make everyone feel welcome in their restaurant.

    It's not really a very classy restaurant, but the food's quality is great and super affordable...the servings are big and even without my mom or dad's senior citizen discount or RJ's person with disability card, we are usually happy with our bill.

    The servers, well, except during an ultra busy day, they are okay. They try their best to accommodate everyone with a smile. I really could not blame them when the place is filled to the brim.



    Major credit cards are accepted

    Favorite Dish: Try everything! :)

    The food is great and inexpensive.

    This used to be a restaurant where simplicity is bliss. They are temporarily just offering services for food orders, delivery, and catering.

    I assure you, they would not disappoint your impeccable or discriminating taste.

    :)

    Cheers!

    Favorite Dish: Pata Tim

    Cold Cuts

    The different fish dishes

    Noodles

    Soup

    etc.

    note: Right now they are just into catering and delivery (they are still thinking if they should still open the restaurant again because they are already very successful in those two "fields")

    by machomikemd Updated Jul 6, 2011
    front
    4 more images

    Yellow Cab Pizza is one of the upcoming local pizza chains that gives pizza hut and dominos pizza a run for their money. Founded in 2001 and the title of the Resto is a play on the famous Manhattan Yellow Cab Taxis and by association, the new york style pizza. It is not the largest local pizza chain (that distinction is from Greenwhich Pizza) but they sure have better tasting pizzas than in the other local chains and they have pizza dough that is in the middle of thick crust and thin crusts and the best thing is they have the really large american sizes of 14" and 18" inches respectively. They are positioned as a quick casual restaurant, serving great pizza using fresh ingredients sourced locally and from australia and new zealand.

    Favorite Dish: the assorted pizza off course, they have the typical pepperoni or their own manhattan lovers pizza or the new york lovers pizza and other pizza flavors that start from 305 pesos for a 10" to 755 pesos for an 18" size. They also have the traditional spaghetti and pasta meals and the buffalo chicken wings and prices starts from 120 to 250 pesos.

    Goodah: 24 hour Pinoy Comfort Food

    by machomikemd Updated Apr 4, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    24 hour comfort food
    4 more images

    GOODAH is a 24 hour fast food place in strategic areas of Metro Manila serving filipino comfort food and is specially popular with the midnight crowd of binge eating after a night of partying and drinking. Recently it also became popular with the BPO (call center employees) crowd due to their cheap meals. It recently returned from a long hiatus with new management as I recently found out after a vacation in Manila. (It was a Bit of nostalgia for me since I usually eat here after a round of binge drinking and partying in my college days, especially their former branch in greenhills)

    GOODAH was pUT together a group of friends in search of goto in the middle of the night and a popular TV ad of the 80's. And the rest is history, or shall we say "A GoodAh!!! Story? It started out as something more like "kwentu-kwentuhan" by friends Mon, Nemy and Bandoc.There were only a few dishes to choose from when they first opened, concentrating on the "Goto" as the main choice. All the original food were formulated by Mon's wife Dee Dee, and preparations were done in Mon's garage with the maids, children and spouses of the three founding guys.

    Aside from good food, GoodAh!!!, which, by the way, was coined from a popular television ad of the '80s, also became famous for signs like "Open 25 Hours!" (which means they work an hour more than any other 24-hour restaurant out there), "Walk Thru! The bridge! (Well, if you can't break them, build over them.).

    Favorite Dish: Well, aside from really good food, GoodAh!!! offers double meals, tipid (budget) meals, unlimited rice, bottomless drinks, and FREE coffee. It still has its classic goto (rice porridge with beef innards), tapsi (fried beef sirloin with fried rice and egg) , ribsi ( fried pork spare ribs with fried rice and egg), adsi (filipino adobo with fried egg and rice) and my all time favorite grilled garlic chicken and newbies like beef pares! (beef with sweetened asado sauce and star anise). meals start at 40 pesos (0.85 USD) to 130 pesos (2.80 USD).

    Pancake House: Serving Healthy food and Delectable Delights

    by nixca316 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    Long before Francorp handled Pancake House we loved dining at their EVERY BRANCH. The food is great and filling, and there is value for money.

    This particular branch is a favorite not because of the proximity(but it is also a factor), but because of the welcoming atmosphere.

    The Franchisees, The Reyes Family, decided to renovate the place and for me, it was a great decision.

    They are rarely without diners and that just means that they have maintained the quality of the food.

    They are also friendly to persons with disabilities and senior citizens

    Favorite Dish: They now have healthy stuff and the waffles could be converted to rye or wheat.

    The Southern flavors are "to die for" and of course, the different kinds of pancakes.

    Mongkok, Santana Grove: Affordable Yummy Chinese Food

    by nixca316 Updated Aug 19, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    6 more images

    We used to have this "posh" resto somewhere in Makati and we had lots and lots of customers. Among other reasons, our resto kind of went "down" when Greenbelt 2 and 3 opened and when Mongkok Dimsum and Noodles invaded the place.

    I know our fusion restaurant cannot be compared to this fast food type resto, but somehow, this resto has a captured market.

    The office goers love it there because it's clean and they have good service. It's easy on the pocket too.

    They are all over the metropolis now and I'm glad they have a branch nearby (Santana Grove).



    around 150-500 Pesos per person (not bad, right?)

    =)

    Favorite Dish: Dimsum and the noodles! =)

    Kenji Tei Ramen House: Japanese Ramen House

    by machomikemd Updated Nov 24, 2009
    entrance
    4 more images

    japanese ramen house specializing in what else but ramen (chinese noodles with japanese style sauce) dishes. Japanese Ramen Houses are sprouting like mushrooms in the philippines due to the growing popularity of japanese ramen here whether hot or cold (just don't ask for soba or udon noodles since this is a ramen noodle house ok). maybe due to a large japanese expatriate population and that filipinos love noodles and that we have a local version of the chinese noodles or japanese ramen called "mami". This small, hole in the wall ramen house is located in BF homes subdivision, a large gated subdivision in paranaque city and is quite popular with the south of manila crowd.

    Favorite Dish: off course in ramen houses there is no sushi or sashimi so don't order it!! they have different styles and soup stocks for the ramen but we ordered what else but my favorite but the shoyu ebi ramen which was deelicious and here in the philippines very cheap at 220 pesos an order! in tokyo a similar size ramen will cost you about 800 yen ( or 412 pesos) if you order an ebi ramen. A Buta Ramen (pork) costs 180 pesos again way cheaper than in tokyo which costs 700 yen (360 pesos). they also offer free hot or cold house iced oolong tea which is refillable.
