[Boyong’s] Chef B’s Grilled Burger is located in 15 E. Dela Paz Street, San Roque, Marikina . It’s open everyday from 1:00 – 10:00 PM except on Sundays. Of course, my favorite Boyong’s special is Dinuguan. I think that’s all I eat in the Philippines since I have resigned from eating hardcore lechons and crispy patas. My husband loved their burger too, although I was only able to smell it across the dining table, I can attest that it really did smell good, it has that homemade effect which makes it more special than super commercialized burgers.

Mesa-Greenbelt 5

I love Mesa. Definitely my favorite in Makati. It is recommended to book your table if you want to be seated inside the restaurant (02 2469069 ext:853) although there are lots of seats outside (you know, for fresher air! LOL).

Store opens from 11Am to 11PM on most days but they extend up to 12 midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. The store offer wifi for those who do not want to waste their data plan (LOL again).

I ate sinigang, adobong pusit, and sisig –loved them all! I forgot what my cousin had but I was able to taste it and it was also great. If I live in Makati and Mesa is right around the corner, I would probably be so fat!

I also admire how the WC is so clean. We were there quite a while and having been served 2 glasses of juice and tons of water, I’ve used the toilet 3 times (I think?) and of those times, never was it ever dirty!

My take on this, 4.5 stars!

Safe to say, Crisostomo is one of my favorite restaurants in the Philippines. My favorite is Dinuguan and my husband’s choice would be their Crispy Pata. I also loved their Mango Shake, the sweetness is just enough and won’t get you into sugar-coma.
