Getting Fat with Fatburger


I know this is already a late post since we had this dinner several weeks ago. I still have more late foodie posts to follow though. I realized that I’ve been trying new restaurants lately, so I might as well make a short review about the food (aside from a randomly captioned Instagram post).

37th MIBF & Gotti’s

37 of #100HappyThings


It was the first day of the 37th Manila International Book Fair yesterday. After work, Lynsey and I met at SM Mall of Asia before heading out to the SMX Convention Center to score new books at discounted prices.


After paying the Php 20.00 for the MIBF ticket, we went to Fully Booked‘s nook. I really didn’t have a book in mind, so I took my time looking for something new to hoard (lol). It was fun – and of course, really hard – to decide what books to buy. If only I had unlimited resources, I would’ve bought everything I could!


I was able to take home two gems from the MIBF. I know I still have a long list of pending books to read but… Who cares? Books are love!

After our book hoarding date, Lynsey and I had our dinner at Gotti’s Ristorante at MOA. We asked for their bestseller for the pizza and since I was craving for lasagna, we ordered one plate as well.




The guys from Gotti’s were nice and they only have 5% service charge. It was indeed a good try.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how bookworm friends bond together.


Army Navy @ Circuit Ayala Mall

29 of #100HappyThings


Yep, yep! Army Navy – Circuit Ayala Mall (Makati) branch is now open! We had our lunch there earlier. I had been craving for burgers since last week! It’s good to know that there’s already an Army Navy branch near my workplace.

I know it’s kinda funny that I this among my list of ‘happy things’ but you know… Food is happiness.

Best of the Best Quality

11 of #100HappyThings


I tried this restaurant last Friday, July 22, with a friend and I think it’s worth a spot for my #100HappyThings since there’s a funny story behind this.

We labeled this one as a ‘scam’ because it doesn’t seem like a restaurant that offers Korean cuisine but its standees are Korean actors/models (not really familiar with Korean stars, sorry). We decided to try it last Friday out of curiosity. Besides, it’s something new to the eye.


I’m not really sure how these are called, but obviously we ordered a sinful set: pizza, chicken, fries and nachos. The food was good, the ambiance was cool, and it was really a nice try.

BBQ (Best of Best Quality) Chicken and Pizza is located at Starmall Prima along Molino Road cor. Daang Hari, Brgy. Molino IV, Bacoor City, Cavite.

It’s a Korean restaurant, so fine. They know better.


8065 Bagnet

6 of #100HappyThings

Bagnet has always been one of my favorites. I’m really a meat lover so you can’t blame me. I swear I’m trying to live a healthy lifestyle, but I really just can’t give red meat up. Let me just balance my consumption with fruits, some veggies, and exercise.


I’ve been in Makati for six months but I was just able to eat at 8065 Bagnet last month. It’s located at 8065 Estrella Street in Barangay San Antonio. It’s just one tricycle away from my work place.

Their meals are pretty much affordable, approximately Php 400 for two persons – in full stomach. The ambiance is pretty much vintage, and I’ve heard that it is owned by singer Kitchie Nadal.


Their Original Bagnet is a good try for 8065-beginners (plus extra rice, LOL). They have budget meals and sets that are good for sharing. They also have beer if you want some almost-drunk time.

All I can say is that from Ilocos’ original to Makati version, ‘bagnet’ never fails.
