Pangasinan Day Trip

Last Wednesday we decided to take our Brand new Hyundai Grand Starex for a test drive and the lucky destination we chose, Pangasinan! 
We left the house at 6am. We Paid toll of 45 at Balintawak Toll then we filled up our starex with Fuel at Petron. We then Paid 173 at Dau Toll. Paid 104 at TPLEX. Paid 164 at end of TPLEX. 

We first Stopped at Sto Tomas Church in Pangasinan. The church was just located along the road. It was a bit far from the municipal hall. 

After the Sto Tomas Church we then stopped at the Churches of Alcala and Bautista. It was my first time to see those 3 Churches. Next we visited a Church that is new to me, the Church of Bayambang. 

After visiting the Church of Bayambang we stopped at a Supermarket in San Carlos to buy Bocayo. Afterwards i went to visit the Church of San Carlos.
Lunch was next at Lingayen. We stopped at a Restaurant we randomly saw. The restaurant was called Biggs. The food was good and cheap. 

Next Stop was Alaminos. We went to the Wharf where the boa…

Noodle King Pares & Mami House (La Loma, QC)

Yesterday, after we had step boards installed on our brand new Hyundai Grand Starex we stopped at Noodle King for Merienda. The last time we ate here was probably last year.
We ordered their beef pares. Eating beef pares transports me back to my college days where we will eat pares along Vito Cruz.

I really enjoyed the Beef Pares of Noodle King. The beef was very tasty and the rice really complemented the beef pares.
Noodle King is located along N Amoranto, La Loma, Quezon City

Farinas Farinas Empanada (White Plains, Quezon City)

Yesterday, i went to Farinas Empanada to buy Empanada. I took a break from waiting at the bank. My number was 457 and the number they were calling when i left was just 200.

I got the Ultimate Empanada for 99 Pesos. Then also saw they have dinakdakan too, ordered that too for 130 plus rice. My buddy M ordered Miki.

The dinakdakan was so-so. The dinakdakan which our caretaker makes is  much much better. The empanada was so so too. The miki according to M was a failure.

Jade Palace Restaurant (Pasig City)

This afternoon we went to Jade Palace for Merienda. We were just supposed to buy Pata Hamon for Mama but ended up eating there.
We ordered their Bola Bola Siopao, Hakaw, Beef Wanton Mami.

Now for the Review:
The siopao was over steamed. The siopao dough was too soft for me. The bola bola was good but i would have preffered it to have salted egg. Charlies has better Siopao.

The Hakaw's skin was rather over done just like the siopao dough. Though it was good.

The beef wanton meanwhile was a revelation. It was very tasty. The noodles were cooked just right too.
Overall it was a satisfying visit. Service was fast and efficient.
