Gringo – Chicken, Ribs & Friends

Found a new place to hang out and enjoy food with friends and family! Gringo is located at Ayala Malls the 30th.

Ayala Malls the 30th is one of the newest malls to open here in Pasig City and it’s just a stone’s throw away from Estancia Mall.

Unlike the more popular malls around the metro, this mall has just the right amount of people, your basic mall needs like supermarket, drugstore and bookstore, lots of trendy boutiques for your shopping needs and a cinema for your entertainment needs. No lines, no frills. The way I like it.

Back to the resto, Gringo’s interior is very homey. It’s like you are in your Aunt’s kitchen. Wood finishes, industrial look.

They serve the best nacho platter in the world! I am not exaggerating! It really is tasty and crunchy! Their lemony tangy sauce is love! ❤❤❤

We ordered a Trufle Queso quesadilla but it didn’t deliver. Can’t taste the cheese at all! Too bland.

Moving on to the kids’ dish – Chicken Fingers & Fries! Cooked just right – chicken so tender & fries so crunchy. And this Chicken Tenders is only Php135.00!

Since it’s Tex-Mex cuisine, there is also burrito on the menu! According to husband, it tastes good and it’s not scrimped!

Their 1875 Pot Stewed Beef is to die for as well! You will have to order rice to partner with this dish! The sauce in itself is already so good and very rich in flavor! Top it with beef that was boiled for hours and hours – heaven!

Of course, there is the Roasted Chicken with Sidings! You go for the Southern Spice than the Original. The chicken is juicy, very flavorful. The spices really add so much flavor to it.

Let us talk about the Mashed Potato! It’s freshly made, need not say anything no more. Anything that’s made fresh will always be on top!

On our 2nd trip, we pretty much ordered the same dishes but we added a half rack of ribs and oh! It tastes as good as the chicken! Too bad we were too hungry that a picture wasn’t in order anymore. So I just grabbed us some picture from Gringo’s Facebook Page.

I am getting hungry from all these, so I will see you later folks! Heading over to Gringo to grab me some chicken and ribs! 😂

HAPPY Wings & Waffles

I am generally a happy person and I love seeing happy stuff. Now, there is a place where your tummy can be happy too! A few weeks ago, Happy Wings & Waffles opened its doors to the public. I have the opportunity to attend its soft opening and I certainly had a happy time!

I love how simple but catchy the logo is. Red definitely attracts clients.

The people who makes us filled with happiness!

I love this backdrop wall. This separates the main dining area and the private function area.

Balloons make the place festive.

A display of different flavored waffles and muffins for your choosing.

This is the statement wall just before the wash area.

Since it’s opening day and guests were invited for the blessing, we were treated with a 5 course set menu.

Hokkaido Pumpkin Soup with Fresh Diced Apple

Caesar Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

Spaghetti Bolognese Pasta with Caramelized Onion Foccacia Bread

Rosemary Roasted Chicken and Cranberry Sauce with Buttered Broccoli and Cauliflower

Matcha Creme Brulee / Champagne Pannacotta / Italian Tiramisu

Of course, after a meal, a cup of coffee is definitely a must!

This is me enjoying my hot cup of Cafe Mocha!

There are so much more to try at Happy Wings and Waffles! Will post more photos as I try more food from their menu. But I will be sure to order the Rosemary Chicken with Cranberry wine sauce! Can’t wait!!!

Be it breakfast, lunch, snacks or dinner, Happy Wings and Waffle surely has something for you!
