Eat Your GF in Today’s Pepper Eats

October 8, 2018

Pepper Eats is our weekly photo-journal featuring the food we stuffed in our mouth.

Risotto Tartufo Funghi from Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen (PHP 325)


Addi says: “I felt a bit cheated because it looked like a sad version of its picture in the menu. It was a little too heavy, but you’ll enjoy it if you like rich, creamy, cheesy stuff melting in your mouth.”

Diner’s rating: 7/10

Sinampalukang Buknok from Halo Halo de Iloko, San Fernando, La Union (PHP 395)


Diana says: “This concoction of coconut water, chicken, and tamarind is comfort in a bowl. The soup tastes how your mother’s embrace would feel like.”

Diner’s rating: 9.7/10

Cookie Butter Donut from Gonuts Donuts (PHP 36)


Adee says: “I don’t get what all the fuss is about. Sure, cookie butter is nice, but it’s not Nutella nice. But hey, I don’t get why Gwiyomi is popular, either.”

Diner’s rating: 7/10

Fettuccine, Truffle Cream, Organic Egg from Grace Park (PHP 550)


Giselle says: “Oh my goodness, if only I could have this for dinner every night. I wouldn’t mind the extra belly. But seriously, Gaita Fores’ farm-to-table concept is impressive from the ambiance right down to the taste: earthy, spot-on, and worth the price.”

Diner’s rating: 9.5/10

Ricotta Eggplant Tortellini from Va Bene (PHP 390)

Kat Iriberri

Kat Iriberri says: “I hate eggplant, but I love this. The fact that it’s mixed in with cheese is probably why. But this dish is just not about the pasta. The mix of the fresh pesto and the spicy kick of the arrabiata is inspired, I actually licked the sauce off the fork.”

Diner’s rating: 9.5/10

Four-Cheese Pizza from Two Seasons, Boracay (PHP 550)

Kat Jao

Kat Jao says: “Gooey creamy four cheese thin crust pizza!”

Diner’s rating: 10/10

Eat My GF (Garlic Fries) All the Way (PHP 169)


Mikka says: “You’re going to love these if you love garlic. Fries and chips with fresh garlic, Parmesan, sausages and bacon.”

Diner’s rating: 8/10

Peanut Butter Ball Waffle from White Hat (PHP 225)


Lars says: “It’s a waffle with a ball of peanut butter on top. Truth in advertising.”

Diner’s rating: 7.45/10

Hot Mocha with Marshmallows from Starbucks (PHP 135)

Mye's Hot Mocha with Marshmallows

Mye says: “And here I thought my hot mocha couldn’t get any better.”

Diner’s rating: 9/10

Lugaw with Lomo (PHP 25) + Tokwa’t Baboy (PHP 18) from Tony & Precy


Nico says: “Instant boost when you wake up hungover. Plus points for the flower pattern on the dishes.”

Diner’s rating: 9/10

Hainanese Chicken Quarter Portion from Toastbox (PHP 249)


Steph says: “The chicken was tasty, but we had to send it back twice since it was still so gummy from being undercooked.”

Diner’s rating: 7/10
