Pastillas Worth Buying and Other Stories

>> Sunday, July 6, 2008

My brother and sister in law came for a visit to our home yesterday, this of course led to an eating and drinking session at Market Market! We kept moving from one place to another, we started at Trellis wanting to try again the sisig they were so famous for in the 90s, it was quite a let down especially after having tried so many other sisig varieties out in the market nowadays. We then moved to Blackbeard's Seafood Island along the same row, all I can say is never, never ever order the salmon sashimi from this place.

We decided to go scour the food court, DH wanted to eat Razon's pancit luglog and my sister-in-law wanted to eat something else. A really hilarious thing happened as we were leaving, because we ordered a bucket of beer but had not been able to finish it after paying the bill we asked the waiter if we could take the beer just outside to the tables in the food court. We were told that it would be okay but he would just have to put it in a "supot" (in a bag) because it was "bawal" (not allowed) to carry it around. We misunderstood and thought all the while that he would brown-bag the bottles for us. DH came out of the restaurant with the beer literally in a "supot", as in the beer was poured out of the bottle and put in a clear plastic bag complete with straw! Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Totally hilarious!

Well after all that, our most exciting food discovery was the pastillas a friend of ours stopped to buy in the food court area, she sent my sister-in-law some samples for us to try and well, we were hooked! Really one of the best pastillas I have tried, plus they were the "Jumbo" size, more of that sweet milky goodness to eat. I can't remember the name of the stall, but what I remember is that it was beside a fruit stand called "ATM Fruit Stand". Ask them for Iyas Jumbo Pastillas, they cost P250 per box. Now I know where to get pastillas for my sister who always asks me to take some back to her when I visit.

About This Blog

All about me, my musings, ramblings, fancies, quirks and dreams; the blessings in my life - the kids and their growing years; and my love for digital scrapbooking/design and graphic arts; and my eternal quest to keep learning something new each day and give back in my little way.

This blog used to be 3 blogs which I decided to merge together, my scrapping blog (Pandoras Box of Thought), the blog about my kids (Beyond the Four Walls) and my cooking/recipe blog (Cooking Mama) - all the old posts are still up but I've decided to just post everything in the future in one forum, with all the things I'm doing, I'd like to keep everything in one neat container :)
