Sbarro's Spaghetti with Chicken Parmigiana

I was inspired when Whitney, the winner of the Master Chef America, cooked a chicken breast in seven minutes. That is why I am always looking for chicken dishes that might satisfy my palate. So, when we had a dinner last Saturday at Sbarro, I quickly ordered the Spaghetti (in tomato sauce) with Chicken Parmigiana. I know the taste of their spaghetti already but, I am yet to find out the Chicken Parmigiana. I will be biased in rating the spaghetti because I am a certified pasta lover more so, in tomato sauce. It certainly have my 100% approval, likewise the chicken, it doesn't have something special to look forward to. It was like a plain chicken with the tomato sauce, I didn't taste the Mozzarella or Parmesan cheese that is supposed to be there.  What I do like though was the bread as its partner sidings.  It was served hot, chewy and can fill up a hungry tummy in just one serving.  I partnered my meal with a Lemonade that tasted just right.

I will definitely dine again here since they have a more friendly and attentive and smart staffs ( even the dining manager assisted us ).  The ambiance is good, well lit and very relaxing with a good ventilation.  My family agreed that our experience here was much better than what we had at the Pizza Hut Bistro at Eastwood City.  The dining experience was worth our money and we finished our meal with all smile and a full tummy.   

So here is my verdict:

Taste -                 4 baskets
Price -                  5 baskets 
Presentation -   5 baskets
Serving -             5 baskets

Average Check - Php 200 per pax

Food Trip Friday #1: My Cupcakes

I am so excited because I am joining the FoodTripFriday!!! I have been seeing this meme from my other blogger friends but can't join because I haven't got a food blog yet. But, now I managed to create one and I hope I can excite your palate every week as I will try my best to capture the best food I will laid eyes on.

This was the chocolate cupcake I baked for my godson's 3rd birthday.  

Food for Thought:
If the recipe requires an ounce of chocolate and you suddenly run out of stock, you can easily substitute it with 3 tablespoons of cocoa plus a tablespoon of fat.

Jollibee Breakfast Meal

Our baby boy is always a fan of McDonald that is why when my hubby and I decided to try Jollibee's breakfast one Saturday morning we had a hard time convincing my son.  And after all the bribing and long talk, he finally agreed.  For our breakfast we had the Hotdog with Rice meal for my hubby and son and Corned beef with Rice for me. 

I love the taste and texture of their corned beef ever since because it is very Filipino style.  There are strands of beef which you can chew and is juicy too which really appeals to my taste.  On the other hand, my kiddo and hubby's hotdog meal is just like any other hotdog meal we can make at home.  By the way, this meal usually is paired with a sinangag (garlic fried rice) but we opted to have it plain since we aren't much of a fan of it.  Nevertheless, a meal shared by a complete family is all the matters regardless what the food is or how much the food cost.

Food for Thought: *Cured meats are the ones that are treated by a curing agent or solution and one of the examples of which is the corned beef.
**Having breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gives us the energy to think well and to do all the tasks we have to accomplish on a day to day basis.
