This is another hotel that has yummy breakfast buffet- Centrio! They have a variety of dishes and fruits to choose from. Though not as much as the one in Mandarin Plaza, they offer delicious food as well. You may either stay at this hotel with or without breakfast but we always get the ones with it. Aside from the breakfast, they also have a beautiful pool. We even get to use their exercise room just for a bit. We enjoyed our stay especially that it is right beside the Centrio mall. A bit pricey but it is worth it. The location is nice. Friends even came and we spent quality time together. By the way, we booked 3 rooms for 3 days. We were with my parents and my brother's family. Great time, great company!

Filipino Meryenda/Snacks

We went to Gaisano Food court in Iligan and had some merienda or snacks before heading to Mimbalot falls. We ordered siopao or steam buns, maruya or fried battered banana, fresh lumpia and tabirak or tapioca porridge (not sure in english) with coco milk and sweet potatoes. It was funny cos hubby ate the bun and the paper. This has a paper on the bottom. Anyway, he kinda liked it and kids ate some too. This is what i like in Philippines, the snacks! My dad used to cook steam buns. I think I have the recipe here somewhere on my blog. Maruya is easy to cook too. I will put up the recipe next time. Also the fresh lumpia, one of my faves! I also have recipe here for the tabirak or ginataang bilo-bilo. So for now, enjoy the picture :D

Boodle Fight

This is from a restaurant at Centrio Mall. They offer boodle fight menus, we call it boodle fight cos you eat with hands and it is like grabbing the food you want you eat from the table. It is like military style of eating thus the word fight. I might be wrong though LOL

Anyways, my high school friends recommended this place and we had enjoyed the food and the company. My husband was intrigued with the way the food was prepared. There was a soup inside a coco shell and some seaweed and fish meat. Everything was so yummy and we ate all the food. Of course, this was served with rice. I was really happy I got to eat seafood again, especially the raw fish, kinilaw and the seaweed!

Pinoy Breakfast

OMG! It was a dream come true having a Filipino Breakfast like this. You see, this is a simple breakfast yet satisfying cos you don't get to eat this back home in US. The chorizo is very different than the one from the store. Asian store has it but still different! I love the one we have here in Philippines. Along with the filipino hotdogs, rice, and scrambled eggs! These are perfect with 3-in-1 coffee or instant coffee. Mmmm, I couldn't ask for more. I know it is not too healthy but oh well, satisfying your cravings is the best! Nom nom!
