Mr. Jones

Makati lunch with sis before she went back to Singapore.  I highly recommend Mr. Jones!  It is located at Level 1, Greenbelt 5.   
We ordered Reuben's "Diner" Classic and Melted "Old Bay" Crab and Dory Thermidor. Must try! 
Slow Braised Corned Beef Brisket, Russian Dressing, Melted Gruyere & Emmental Cheese on Toasted Rye with Dijon Mustard and Horseradish (P 380)

Hollandaise & Mornay Sauce, Wilted Spinach, Herb Rice Pilaf & Fresh Lemon (395)

Vigan Food Trip!

8 hours of travel time, 24 hours of good food!

One round of food trip during our overnight stay at Vigan, Ilocos Sur!

Breakfast -- Plaza Burgos
Arrived at around 6AM.  We really wanted to get a feel of Vigan life so we decided to visit the food stalls by the plaza! It is located just right beside St. Paul Cathedral. Locals usually eat here after their morning jog. We had a heavenly yet affordable breakfast! Lomi is a must try!.

Lunch -- Cafe Leona
After dropping off our bags at the hotel, we went straight to Cafe Leona located at Crisologo Street. Of course, we ordered Vigan's very famous bagnet and longganisa!  

Afternoon Merienda -- Hidden Garden
Our calesa driver told us that we could not possibly leave the city without trying Hidden Garden's Empanada! Truly, it was delish! Not the usual empanada that you could buy inside the malls. It's crispy stuffed with egg, vigan longganisa and papaya.

Dinner & Drinks -- Uno Grille
Because we scheduled an early Pagudpud trip the next day, we ended our night by having dinner and drinks at Uno Grille. The restaurant is located at Bonifacio StreetGreat ambiance and exquisite food!

One of the best trips I've had! I would not mind a round 2! Anyone?
