Choco Loco Yoghurt at The White Hat

I haven’t found The White HatItalian frozen Yoghurt store here in my new place. So every time I crave for yoghurts, I always remember those funny escapes of my close friend, Gemma Lou, wherein almost always the very first food we dive at are yoghurts at The White HatItalian frozen Yoghurt.

Most of the time I order Choco Loco Yoghurt. This doesn’t obviously shows how I love and attached to chocolates. Isn’t it? Smiley And to every cup of yoghurt we had before, always had a story to tell.

One time, we were still on our medical uniforms, we just immediate rush to SM City Cebu to cater our cravings needs. We passed by at a music store while munching our yoghurts, singing and laughing together when we accidentally bump at a music stand that looked like a Hamilton music stands at WWBW. Maybe we were just innocently looking students that time that the store attendants and the security guard didn’t scold us. They just smiled and told us to be careful next time in strolling inside the mall while eating so for us not to cause accidents nor damages to any stores.

But that was just us — often times, the childish in us dominates.

East London Dining

When one thinks of London cuisine, one is constantly reminded of the diversity of the city itself. The different cuisines of London’s various communities are perhaps best manifested in East London – in the midst of this rapidly regenerating area, you’ll find authentic delights from the world over that are sure to change your view of dining in London.

Perhaps the best-known culinary destination in East London is Brick Lane, home to innumerable curry houses, pubs and bars, making it London’s prime territory for Indian and Bangladeshi food. It can be hard to choose one establishment among the masses of options, but you’re likely to enjoy a first-rate meal whichever restaurant you choose, with diverse menus incorporating modern and traditional dishes.

East London is by no means restricted to curries, however. One restaurant in Bethnal Green takes advantage of its hip location to bring classic French dishes to East London. Committed to serving ingredients and wines of the highest quality, and yet remaining surprisingly affordable, this restaurant has gained a reputation for top-quality food, without any of the extravagance that characterizes many of Central London’s hallmark restaurants.

East London’s regeneration has brought about an emphasis on retail, most obviously in the mammoth new Westfield Stratford City, which boasts around 70 places to eat! A day’s shopping is never complete without somewhere to enjoy a wonderful meal, and those who find themselves lured to Westfield will love the range of restaurants on offer, which cater for all tastes – whether you’re a fan of Vietnamese street food, Spanish tapas or Argentinean steak and chips.

With all that East London has to offer, a credit card is essential, whether you’re indulging in a day of shopping or trying out London’s finest cuisine. Alternatively, with American Express charge cards, you can enjoy the flexibility of having no pre-set spending limit or interest charges – you simply have to pay your balance in full at the end of each month, and you can enjoy a variety of exclusive membership rewards.

Sbarro’s Fried Rice

One of the foreign food stops in the country where I used to eat is the Sbarro, Italian restaurant. But that’s only just lately that I loved dining there after one of my friends drag me to dine with her. I don’t eat pasta but I love pizza; perhaps the reason why I didn’t try checking any yummy foods at Sbarro. Another thing, I was thinking before, that they only serves pasta and pizza, which I was wrong.

When I tried one of their chicken menu, I will be posting about that delicious food on my upcoming posts, there was a fried rice included there.

Telling you, I am the most picky foodie eater especially on rice preparation. I hate restaurants which prepare and serve rice that are not inviting in presentation like those almost brownish in color plain rice. How could you eat voraciously then?

Anyway, the Sbarro fried rice that I am showing here above is undeniably great. With regards to the presentation, the each bit of pieces of rice is purely white, robust and really mouth-watering. It was added with sliced into small-sized cubes of green bell peppers and other spices.

Ain’t you enticed to try some yet?

I was thinking then, while grabbing a plate of this, if how does the fried rice tastes when I am eating it in Italy with my family? Haha! I was even checking that moment, with my iPad at my side, some cheap family holidays abroad, most specifically in Italy and the Italy map as well for some spots where there are Sbarro restaurant nearby but just a cheap one. Well then, cheaper cost on holidays spent together with the family is a big plus compared to getting same luxurious experience but, obviously, higher cost. If there’s a cheaper one, why not grab then? Right?

Sbarro’s Unknown Food

Yesterday, I was invited to attend for a “mini” birthday dinner and celebration of one of my close friends in medical school. Why “mini”? It’s because we were just six whom she invited to dine out excluding her husband and her. Altogether, we were just eight dining at Sbarro, an Italian restaurant in Ayala Center Cebu.

Anyway, I am not really into Italian foods. That, honestly, was my first time to dine at Sbarro restaurant. I don’t eat pasta but I do love pizzas. Perhaps the reason why Italian restaurant are not as inviting for me as other restaurants like Thai, or any.

So, here below, since I am not familiar with the foods in that restaurant, I just let the celebrant chose a food for me. Off course, she knew what I want and I don’t like to eat.

She ordered roasted chicken for me. I’ll be posting about that foodie, maybe tomorrow. She also gave me plain white cheese pizza and this one below which I forgot the name. Haha!

She said this food is just right for me. This has no pork, beef, crustaceans or any thing mixed that I don’t eat. This is plainly a dough and a spinach inside it. She chose white creamy milky cheesy sauce for me as well.

However, though I was really hungry last night, I wasn’t able to finish this one and even the pizza. Off course, I first ate the roasted chicken. Then I tried some bit of pieces of the slice of the pizza. And then this one. Waaaaaaah! That was really a carbo-night for me. I was eating merely carbohydrates. Haha!

Can somebody help me remember what this food names? Thanks!

Happy Sunday, by the way! Have a blessed one!
