cobo: awesome possibiliteas

Published October 14, 2012 by ladyemelye

last june 17 (i know… i have a lot of blog backlogs 😦 ) i got to try a milktea place along alabang-zapote road.  it was called Cobo: Awesome Possibiliteas.

for the drinks, they offered a lot of varieties: bubble burstea, bubble burst smoothies, cobo sea salt, sooosmoothy, premium pressoteas, krazee koffee, jello fruit tea and of course milk teas.

they also have snow cream and cobo crunch.  for the crunch these include taiwanese chicken (in various flavors) and taiwanese dimsum like kuchai dumplings, sharksfin and pork siomai.

drink prices range from Php 60.00 to Php 100.00 depending on the flavor and add ons that you choose.  snacks are Php 49.00 (dimsum) and Php 70.00 (chicken).

menu and counter

the dining area is cozy with a number of colorful chairs and tables.  one can hang out here, have a snack, meet with friends, plus they have free wi-fi. 😉

since i just had lunch when we stopped by this store, i opted to order one of the premium pressoteas.  i ordered the rose tie guanyin (16oz).  this also included pearl and cocochew.  you also have the option to change the sugar level based on your preference – extra mild, mild, average or intense.  you could also choose to substitute to coco sugar for an additional Php 15.00.

rose tie guanyin milk tea – Php 85.00

the drink had a nice, strong tea flavor to it, but unfortunately i was not able to taste the “rose” part.  i will go back here to try other drinks, and also the snacks.

mother’s day celebration at dona felisa

Published May 27, 2012 by ladyemelye

last mother’s day, we decided to treat out mama for dinner at dona felisa which is located at cavite city.  the restaurant is situated where the former paredes-yamaha store (which sells piano/keyboard and also offers lessons — wherein i studied when i was young).  they serve mostly filipino dishes.

here is a rundown of what we ordered, together with some comments:

fried siomai – php 110.00

for starters, we ordered fried siomai.  the filling was tasty and the ratio of filling to wrapper ratio was ok.  this was served together with chili garlic oil and some toyomansi.  the only downside is that it was a bit overfried as you can see in the picture.

shanghai rice – php 140.00

we were supposed to have the sisig rice, but unfortunately it was unavailable.  so we ordered the shanghai rice instead.  it was fried rice that contained the fillings of what would have been a lumpiang shanghai.  it was ok, but nothing extraordinary.  the serving is good for 3 to 4 people.

beef with broccoli – php 150.00

for our vegetable dish, we had the beef with broccoli. the beef was thin strips and it was tender.  the broccoli were cooked just right and not soggy.  matteo liked munching on the green florets.

garlicky crispy pata – php 260.00

we ordered the garlicky crispy pata for our main viand.  the pork was crispy and it helped that it was already chopped into almost bite sized pieces, so that we did not have a hard time cutting up the pork.  the dipping sauce that came with it was the usual vinegar-soy sauce with onion.  it lacked the “garlic” flavor though that i was expecting due to it’s name.

crab foo yong – php 150.00

we also tried the crab foo yong.  this was a little unique than the usual foo yong served at other restaurants since it has a generous sprinkling of sesame seeds which gave the dish a nutty taste.  what i didn’t like about this dish is that it used crabsticks instead of true crab meat.

we also ordered bottomless lemonade for our drinks.

by the end of our dinner, we were already full that we were not able to order dessert.  maybe next time.  i am interested to know what the “sikreto ni churva” is.

overall, this is a good alternative if you are looking for a restaurant in cavite city where you could have good filipino food.  the location is easily accessible.  the restaurant itself is spacious and offers free wi-fi.  the only downside that we experienced during our visit there was that it took a little time for our orders to be served, since they were a little understaffed that night.  but the waiting crew was very courteous and attentive to what we needed.

it is very likely that we will revisit this restaurant to try out their other offerings.

another restaurant opened in madison square, pioneer. it’s name is lime leaf. the cuisine they offer is thai based, but at a more affordable price. junjun and i decided to check it out since they also had free wi-fi. =)

we ordered green pork curry and chicken satay. i also had the thai iced tea.

the food and iced tea was good. the curry was a little bit sweet though. I liked the peanut sauce for the satay, except that it didn’t came with cucumbers and tomatoes which i like to munch on as side dish.
the value for the food was ok too. our total bill was around Php 300.00. the free wi-fi was definitely a plus.
