Baby Panda and Baby Squid

It was a C&C (Cait and Carla) Saturday for Joko, Kassy and I. We played with our inaanak, Cait aka Baby Panda. Kas played with her in her new Dora the Explorer tent. Joko amused her using her colorful charm bracelet. I read her a story that even Joko and Kas seemed to like because I had my preschool teacher mode on! :))

After our playtime with Cait, we kidnapped Carla aka Mommy Panda for lunch at Romulo Cafe. Here’s what we feasted on:

Vigan Longganisa and Cheese Triangles (150-something php)
My 2nd favorite dish! I can eat a dozen of these savory treats! With a more tangy dip!

Ensaladang Filipino (120php)
Nothing could go wrong with salted eggs, okra, singkamas, eggplant, tomato, kangkong and bagoong in a plate! Well… sana may onions rin pala!

Tito Greg’s Kare-kare (250++ php)
House specialty daw. DAW. The taste didn’t stand out as much as the color.

Pork Belly Humba (250++ php)
A little too bland for my taste. But then again, I am Miss Sodium. Hehehe.

Bagnet Pinakbet (150-something php)
Perfectly cooked veggies and crispy pork. Kinda tastes like what my mom makes sans the bagnet. So yep, I liked it! 🙂

Baby Squids in Garlic (230php)
Hands down, the best dish we had! Tender pusit swimming in appetizing garlic sauce. Nomnomnom!

Didn’t have dessert in Romulo, because we had to get our butts to Eastwood in time for a book discussion. Book part, Joko’s. Discussion part, the rest of us. Hahaha! Love my girls. And I love that all (or most) of my girls are as takaw as me. :p

* Thanks Carla LLB for the pictures! 🙂

    This is the first time I met you and Kas! Seems sooo long ago. My faves at Romulo is their chicken galantina (the BEST I’ve had and that means a lot considering it’s one of our family heirloom recipes) and their ginataang chicken adobo!
