Back In The Arms Of NamNam Greenbelt

Posted on Wednesday, August 28, 2013 |
After my trip to Nagoya and Tokyo where I has a gastronomic euphoria for almost 8 days, I am home and back in the arms of Manila.  I thought for a while that I might have a difficult time adjusting because Tokyo was so clean and Manila is not as good as the city I visited.  

Don't get me wrong because I love Manila. I super duper love this place because it has the ingredients of a happy life - good friends ans good food! 

The first friend I get to meet up after my trip is Trisha.  She asked me to buy her a Shu Uemura Face Architect Foundation 754 (Very specific indeed!)  and a pack of Kit Kat Green Tea.  As promised, I brought it with me because I am sure she's as excited.  

We met up at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf which happens to be our usual meet-up place in Greenbelt 3.  When it was time for us to decide where we're having dinner, I googled and all fingers point to NamNam.  I was surprised to know that it is counted as one of the best restaurants in Greenbelt.  Well, it is one of the best for me.  I'm there like every single Friday night that the Lord has made.  Its just that I want to try another restaurant for a change.  On the other hand, I thought that NamNam might be a good way to welcome my palette to everything Filipino.  

So we went to NamNam and found ourselves drowned in all these: 

a.) Caramelized Patis Wings 


b.) House Crispy Sisig 


c.) Vegetable Ubod and Sotanghon Lumpia 


I chose not to eat rice because I was drinking beer.  Not that it is a good substitute but thought of doing myself a favor from not eating a lot.  I had to remind myself that I was no longer on vacation and I had to get back on track on mu diet.  

I was proud of myself for doing such a thing and for not having the urge to finish everything (Partly because I was full and had two chicken legs for lunch!) 

So I am going happy with some food we didn't get to finish.  

Trisha came with a very young 23-year old Singaporean guy who was really funny, cute and witty and yummy too!!! 

I wish them happiness even if they're not a couple yet.  I'd like to wish happiness for myself too.  

I really hope he'll come soon.  I've had so much heartbreak already.  

For now, I'll deal with the food inside this paper bag I am holding.
