gluttony on a wednesday night

last night, ricky and i decided that we HAD to try the don bosco eatery for pizza and pasta, after our failed attempt last sunday. it's supposed to close at 9pm. we got there 8:40: the place was still open, and indeed, there were lots of people still having their dinner. Oh-so-excited, we went to Cashier no. 1 (since it's self service). Closed. We were referred to Cashier no. 2 in the other dining area. i saw a girl already counting money. ooops, didn't look good. true enough, closed as well. the girl said last order is at 8:30. what the...? closing at 9, but last order is 8:30? so when people come in between 8:31 to 9:00, are they only supposed to order drinks?

huffing, puffing and extremely hungry, we stormed out of the place. this time, we did not have an alternative. but then, like an answered prayer (of a different sort, that is), what did i see as we were about to cross buendia heading back to manila?


aaaaah, aling lucing sisig. the pride of pampanga. i've read and heard about it, so why not give it a shot?

and that's just what we did. ordered that P130 sizzling big shot (good for 2-3 persons) and one rice for each of us. aaaaah, aling lucing sisig. the pride of pampanga....

we were gone in 20 minutes. we did not even finish everything. yes, aha, aha, you guessed it...we were disappointed.

and so, huffing, puffing, and still hungry, we again stormed out of the place. We needed to have closure on that sisig, dammit! and we knew just where to go...

bacolod chicken inasal along jupiter street - our SAVIOUR! we ordered right away. one pork sisig and one rice. oooooh, can i add batchoy?

"I haven't eaten batchoy in a looooong time!" i told ricky.

gluttony, gluttony, gluttony.

by 10:00, we were heading home. we had our closure.

(but we'll be back for that don bosco eatery...dammit we will!)

sorry vin, i meant the gelato in amici don bosco is good. my italian friend says it's the best italian ice cream in manila.

having said so, maybe you can just go there for dessert;)-

but i really have to agree that nothing beats bacolod food!!! and am not even from bacolod. ajay

hahaha, alam mo aj, i realized gabi na that you were talking about the don bosco gelato. i was able to finally go to amici last night. i meant to delete my comment this morning no, kaya lang down ang internet. so tangengot ako, of course, hindi gelato ang black sambo. last night, i did not have room for the gelato anymore. sobrang busog!
