Afterwork Cravings at A Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante

If you know me or have been reading my blog or last posts, you would have noticed by now that I have an addiction and I just cant help it. I guess I am a pizza and pasta-HOLIC. You know how a common question goes like, if you can only have one food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be? This is my answer.

I have been craving for pizza for days and one Sunday night after work, I gave in,haha
We went to A Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante in Glorietta to satisfy our pizza cravings.

What We Ordered:

Baked Ziti with Meatsauce P305

aVenetto Classic P250 for 10"

The Verdict:
The baked ziti has a huge serving probably good for 2-3 persons and its good but not that good, you know what I mean. Then the pizza also tastes average and has too many onions for my taste. I also didnt like the fact that they use the Jufran Hotsauce because its so hot (in a bad way) and the hotness lingers in your mouth long enough that it can be painful.

Pizza Lovin at Bistro Ravioli

I was walking around Glorietta and saw this new restaurant in G3 just right accross Kenny's Rogers. I was on a diet, but oohhh for the love of pizza and pasta, im in!

Here's what we ordered:
Garlic Seafood Spaghetti P170

Margherita P260

3 cheese ravioli
The Verdict: 
I so love their ravioli. I have tried the Italian Sausage and the 3-cheese and I love them both! The pizza is also really good and the prices are very affordable. Oh gosh, I'm already thinking of stopping by before I go home.=)

Stopover: Tacsiyapo in Gerona Tarlac

On our way back to Manila from Baguio, I was pretty excited for our stopover dinner (or should I say breakfast? Its 1:00am and we havent had dinner) because it would be my first time to go to Isdaan in Gerona Tarlac and  I have been hearing a lot of stories about their tacsiyapo wall that I have planned to visit a long a time ago when my heart was broken.haha

The place is really interesting because they have a lot of statues from buddha, monkeys, past presidents and security guards. Aside from that, they also offer different attractions like free fish if you sing the karaoke, feeding fishes, bands , dancers and the famous tacsiyapo wall.

The place was huge and they have nipa huts suspended over a pond full of Koi fishes. After taking a few  pictures, I have decided to just stay at the hut because I was so hungry. Unfortunately, we called the waiters numerous times but to no avail.

All of them were busy serving other tables and it took them 30 minutes just TO GET THE ORDER. I dont know, maybe they have limited staff during that time because it was already 1am, but wth? Bad service is bad service and I don't care what time it is!

They served the food 30-45 minutes after the order was taken. We ordered Ginataang Alimasag (they serve it per 100g), Sinigang na hipon and Spicy shrimps.

It was expensive! 1kg of alimasag (crabs) would cost over P1,000, the taste is average and if I went to Tarlac just for this, I would be disappointed. Good thing this was just a stopover.
waiting and waiting and waiting for the food
Then after eating, I went to check out the tacsiyapo wall. If you're mad, angry, brokenhearted or whatever, you can release all your anger here.
