Maginhawa food trip : The Lost Bread

From Buffalo bro's Ribs and Wings, we went straight to The Lost Bread, famous for the eye candy presentation of their shakes and frappes.

True enough.  My initial reaction was, how will you drink it?

Carousel milkshake

  Another set of milk shakes.
s'mores and chocolate chips; sugar overload

caramel ice cream?
Their shakes are indeed pleasing to the eye but honestly, I did not like the taste, it taste different for me, so I settled and ended up enjoying my cup of coffee instead.

Would I recommend this? definitely! if you're a foodie and into shakes and frappes, go try this! Budget is 150.00 to 200.00 at least for a shake.

Maginhawa food trip : Buffalo Ribs & Wings

Happy Monday everyone! I'm starting off this week with a very delectable blog post, because last week, we finally fulfilled a plan we've been making years ago :) at last hindi na drawing di ba?

We headed to Maginhawa St of Quezon City- a food haven for food enthusiasts.

We first went to Buffalo Ribs and Wings, located at 45B Maginhawa, UP Village, Quezon City. It was of course referred to us by friends who already had a taste of their buffalo wings.

A 12 pcs plate of hot chili  and garlic parmesan wings. I think this cost 249.00 or more basta less than 300.00
They said their hot buffalo wings are so good buy since I am not fond of hot and chili food, I ordered the garlic parmesan wings. They did not disappoint. It was good I almost ordered rice :)

I also tried this milk shake.  Caramel pretzel for 150.00. If you are not counting your sugar intake, Go for it!

My girls ordered burgers for them. I tried a bite (each kind) and what can I say? I love the fries..hahaha!  Their burgers are of good price actually but not my taste. i love the real beef patties in burgers eh. These burgers are fried chicken burger, pulled  pork burger and I can't remember the other one. Those who ordered enjoyed it naman.

I will go back someday soon to try their ribs which is quite affordable too.

After this we went to another food store  : The Lost bread which I will  post later

D'Mall at Boracay Island

This is the famous D'Mall in Boracay.

At first, I thought it was a "mall" like the usual mall in Manila...hahaha! inosente lang ang peg, hindi pala :)

It is  a strip of stores, shops of souvenir items, clothes, foods and a lot more. You can find branded and local stuff here.

There are benches at the center aisle in case you get tired of all the walking and window shopping (like what I did)

I guess it's hard to miss this spot because it's along the way going to the white beach.

At the end of this walkway is this beautiful, pristine water and powdery sand of Boracay!

Island Nook Boutique Hotel in Boracay

Since we always travel on a budget trip, it is but natural for me to scout for the cheapest (but nice) place to stay. I booked late (2 weeks before our trip) good thing I was  able to still get one that is very affordable and is nice.

here we are waiting for our room and obviously excited to go to the beach!

Island Nook Boutique Hotel- is  a small boutique hotel right in the center of Boracay, which was the very reason I booked it, just in front of a  convenience store,  very near the famous D-mall and few minutes away from the beach. I was kinda scared to book one that is quite far from the busy station because we are first timers maybe next time.

took this photo outside the convenience store (ministop)

I booked through Agoda because they got the cheapest price. We paid Php 2,160.00 for 2 nights meaning 1,080.00 per night including breakfast for two. Not bad di ba?

Here are  photos of the room. Just basic necessities, bed, tv and a chair but it's ok with us, after all we went there not for the room but for the sea, sun and sand!

this is the entrance room, find it weird that the lavatory is there :)

 And here is the bathroom, with hot and cold shower, working flush, and a strong water. This is a plus factor for them because I read from reviews that there are budget rooms in Boracay but comfort rooms are not that good)
and a plate of their breakfast. Choices are the usual, tapa, bangus, longganisa, coffee or juice and some sandwhiches.

Over all, we had  a very pleasant stay in Island Nook, if you are in  a budget trip and want to be in the center of the busy street of Boracay. This one's for you.
