Our Rockwell Food Trip

Went to Manila with my sister and her T for a routine check up with our doctor but I had to spend the entire Saturday at home because of one medical procedure.
Thank heavens for Sunday. After hearing Mass with my mom, we went to Rockwell to window shop while waiting for my sisters and T. I ended up buying a shirt and a cookbook, my last for the year! accckk!!!!

Hello benefactors! I'll post my cookbook wish list later.

(Cibo, Rockwell branch)

When my sisters and T arrived at Rockwell we had lunch at Cibo, one of our favorite restaurants. Cibo serves modern italian food. Owned by Margarita Fores, Cibo is one restaurant that does not scrimp on quality and quantity. The servings are generous. The flavors clean and fresh, never muddled. I had the grilled italian sausage with yellow peppers, tomatoes and onion. It came with rice pilaf. Washed every morsel down with their red grape shake. Yummy!!!!! My mom and Gelli split a pasta al nero (pasta with squid ink), Tanya ordered linguini pescatore and her T had linguini netuno. We also had insalata di mare and pizza.

We were not able to take pictures of the food because it was already 1 pm and we were so hungry to even bother with the camera. But trust me when I say that the food at Cibo is excellent.

After lunch, we window shopped some more then headed to the theater to watch Angels and Demons. The movie was much better than The Da Vinci Code. Afterwards we joined the long queue at Pepper Lunch.

On the phone with dad. While waiting for the hot plates to arrive.

I love Pepper Lunch. Never mind if I'd reek of food when I leave the restaurant. I always leave busog! Check out their branch at Shangrila. They have better ventilation over there.

Beef Teriyaki

Hitokuchi cut steak

I love their beef teriyaki and the steak is yum yum especially when cooked right.
I asked their server to make sure that we were seated before they serve our food because the first time I went with my family, the food was already on the table and the meat was already well done. She didn't disappoint us this time.

Shake Shake Salad (Seaweed and Chicken)

Happy with my meal! I can't decide on spoon and fork or orange chopsticks.

(Guess whose plate this is. Hint: not mine.)

All in all, it was a wonderful Sunday. Too bad my dad wasn't there.
