abe’s restaurant, serendra

with one comment

These pictures are awful. They were taken in a very harried fashion and in very lowlight. Nevertheless, the meal was epic and one of those places that I always want to introduce people to so we’re gonna talk about it, poor photography cannot stop us.

I took these pictures back in February during a business trip to Manila. The taxi ride to Serendra was memorable bc the taxi uncle was taking his sweet time driving us around in circles and claiming that he did not know where Serendra was but that he knew where Market Market was. Ok, dude, they are across the street from each other.

Annnnywho, we shook the cab ride off and arrived wide eyed at Serendra. As per usual the place was poppin’ with plenty of people milling about, grabbing dinner, and hanging out. I had done my homework and we were gunning for Abe’s which had rave reviews and apparently was restaurant of the year or something in 2008.

The best Filipino restaurant I’ve ever been to. So delicious, great service, lovely menu.

(Looks a bit empty but this is at the end of the night.)

We meant to go to Bonifacio for our annual Pasko Lunch (Christmas lunch for us Filipino kids) but the darn thing is closed on Mondays so we ended up at 7,107 again. These pictures are from when Tine from MV came to visit. To lure you into the post, I’m gonna start with crispy pata.

The Filipino’s gift to the universe.

Cholesterol? What cholesterol.

pasko lunch 2008

with one comment


If you haven’t figured it out yet Pasko is Filipino for Christmas. There’s a lot of Filipino in this post. You might want to have Google Translate on standby.

It’s become a tradition to have Pasko Lunch every year at work. It’s the one time of the year where all of the Filipino kids get together and share a meal. For some reason, we’re terrible at getting together otherwise. Still, when we do meet up it’s a big gorge-fest of all of the Christmas treats that Goldilocks on Rengstorff has to offer. Inevitably, we are all supremely full and sleepy after Pasko Lunch.

No Goldilocks for me this year. I had Pasko Lunch Singapore style. Ang saya, diba?
