I really miss Swensen’s.  It’s one of our favorite hang outs in Bangkok and this hot and humid weather has made me miss Swensen’s ice cream more!

One of my closest friends who is in Thailand now asked me what I’d like her to bring me home.  I wanted to say, “Swensen’s, Pad Thai, Iced tea with milk…” sigh.  Some things are not possible.  Sadly.

Last week our friends treated us for lunch at Fely J Restaurant at Greenbelt 5, Makati.   I was too shy to take out my camera and take photos of our lunch which was really a shame because  I must say it was one of my most memorable dining experiences ever. The food was great!

We went to Restaurante Pia Y Damaso for dessert and coffee– this time I had the guts to tell my friends that  I have a food blog and if they didn’t mind, I’d like to take photos of our dessert and coffee before we’d indulge!  Of course they said yes and asked me why I did not take photos of our lunch as well.

So I was like… tsk, yeah… :)

I greatly enjoyed coffee with those sweets there.  Restaurante Pia Y Damaso is not just a coffee shop.  They also take pride in their Filipino dishes which are actually gaining popularity.  For food choices, you can check out their website here.

Great Dining Experience at MK

MK is definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Thailand. It’s actually a Chinese hot pot resto– I love the fact that it’s healthy and for an affordable price, MK never fails to give us one satisfying, burpy-licious meal everytime!

The place is cozy and quiet, ideal for family dine outs

This duck dish is our all-time favorite!!  One serve costs 195 THB or 6.50 USD

The MK sauce with garlic and chili is a sure winner– this is what sets this restaurant apart from its competitors, actually. We totally love it.

The meal comes with an unlimited iced tea already, so you don’t have to buy drinks unless of course you are craving for soda or a fruit drink.

Burrp! That was one great meal shared with friends last night.  Thank you for yet another great dining experience, MK!
