Zomato Foodie Meet Up at Banzai

Luckily I was chosen to be part of the food bloggers meet up at Banzai organized by Zomato Philippines. Zomato is an online and mobile application where you can find different restaurants according to place, types of cuisine or budget. This is a great help for any foodie like me because it gives users info about the menu and the cost so you can be ready to budget your money and you already know what to expect or order because of the ratings and reviews of the other users.
Ms. Elaine Taningco the community manager of Zomato told us that they really arrange a foodie meetup every week to give thanks to those people who uses the Zomato app. and for this week they chose Banzai to be the venue. So Yeah! I'm so lucky not just because it is free but also I was given the chance to meet other bloggers like me!

Banzai is a Japanese buffet restaurant where you can discover a lot of authentic Japanese dishes like sukiyaki, ramen, tempura, yakiniku, takoyaki, katsu, sushi and sashimi, teppanyaki which is the signature meal of the restaurant and so many to mention jap dishes!  The name was actually Banzai: The Great Teppanyaki Theater because they feature skilled teppanyaki chefs who are putting up a fire cooking show and some knife exhibition. I learned that this restaurant also belongs to the High Jap Group whom they also own the famous restaurants: Sumo Sam, Mr. Kurosawa, John and Yoko, Teddy Bigger Burgers etc.

Rodillas Yema Cake

My bestfriend went to Quezon last Saturday so I texted her to buy me a RODILLAS YEMA CAKE.
I was very curious of its taste because some of my facebook friends posted pictures of it. Luckily she replied yes and told me that the price is P180 for a small box which is cheaper than buying into food stalls in the mall. I think the mall SRP for this small box is P250, well maybe because of their efforts, travel or gas expense in buying this cake makes the mall price higher. So it is still reasonable for 250 pesos.

Solaire Resort and Casino Foodcourt

Even in a five-star hotel like Solaire Resort and Casino you can still find affordable foods to eat. They have a food court where they offer intercontinental cuisine and for only P150-P300 you can already enjoy one big serving meal.  Here are some of my orders during my stay at the hotel.

Sorry for my Blog Photos

Hi Guys,

Sorry for my blog photos I just used Low Res. Phone Camera on that. I'll definitely post new pictures as soon as I get back with those restaurants I made a review but for the mean time please bear with it. Thank you for understanding. :)

Tong Yang Hot Pot Restaurant Experience

This is one of my favorite buffet Tong Yang Hot Pot Restaurant, It offers Chinese, Japanese cuisine buffet selections like sushi rolls, siomai, siopao, yangchow and other chinese dishes and for only PHP585 you can already enjoy your dinner here with your family and friends or your lunch for only PHP399 at 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM Monday to Friday only. 

The reason why I love this buffet rather than the famous Yakimix is because they have wide selections of food to barbecue! They have seafoods like shrimp, scallops, salmon, mussels, crabs etc. Meat like chicken, pork, beef, bacon, yakitori etc.

My friends also love the hotpot where they cook noodles using the chicken soup (they have wide variation of noodles eg. sotanghon, udon etc.) and they also lovw to make a beef sinigang with lots of kangkong and labanos. Tong Yang  base soups selection were chicken, sate and sinigang. We always get the sinigang.

About their desserts, they usually have 2 cakes from Goldilucks, they also have halo-halo, ice cream from Big Scoop (love all the flavors, I usually topped it with pinipig) etc. can't remember all of it.. Drinks they have Mango Juice, Orange Juice, softdrinks they also have beer and soju.

Banapple Pies and Cheesecake

Banapple Pies and Cheesecake from the name itself we can tell that their specialty are desserts but since I am not a sweet tooth my boyfriend and I just tried their entrees. I saw a lot of customers ordered Blueberry Cheesecake, Garlic Beef Tapa with Creamed Parsley Eggs and Baked Creamy Cheesy Penne (which is the pasta I want to try next time) but we ordered different because upon scanning the menu we ordered these three entrees that made my mouth water...
