Post-Election Food Trip

I have been meaning to write this post a few weeks after my friend Kim and I decided to visit and do some bonding session but because of a disappointing experience, had to contemplate whether to do so or not. So pardon me if this is another long-overdue post.

I went on a scheduled vacation leave a day after the elections (May 11). My author-friend Kim have always wanted to meet and finally, after what seemed eternity, we found the time to do so. She had always bugged me about visiting Dorothy's Waffle House in SM Center Angono because she had always wanted to try their unlimited waffles promo that she saw on their FB page. However, on that day we visited, this is where the disappointment occurred because we were told that the said promo is no longer offered (when their FB post said otherwise. The said post was removed the following day after we complained). To cut the whole long and disappointing story short, we settled on ordering what's on their menu.

This artwork on the wall reminds me of a huge
adult coloring book.

The centerpiece on each table are vibrant.
This has Christmas colors.

Even our drinks are matched to the color
Refreshing but too sweet for my tastebuds.
The spaghetti is filling if you're into carbo-loading. The serving is
average portioned. Kids will give a thumbs up as to the taste.

I ordered their mango waffle while Kim had blueberry.
Their waffles are good though it would be better with
sweet mangoes than the jelly I think.
In a way, despite going through those few minutes of disappointment over that promo (that almost led me to unleash my inner-lawyer subconsciousness), Kim and I had a good time most over the waffle and the conversation. If you are looking for some cozy pl,ace to hangout with friends, you can give this place a visit. Although for us, it might take some time before we decide to come back.

I have been to that place twice, their waffles were good but they were plain to me. Now they dressed it all up with ice cream, sauces, etc. kumbaga nag level up na and I'm looking forward to taste them. (I liked their beef stroganoff rice meal too).

I agree with the iced tea. That's why I let some of the ice to melt first.

I have yet to try their beef stroganoff rice meal but that's interesting; maybe when I get to hopefully visit them again, it's still on the menu so I could give it a try.

There are a number of hole in the wall restaurants here in Angono that I am planning to visit soon and try their food -- just fixing my weekend schedules to do it. BTW, I was trying to recall your name and naalala ko na you were the one pala who left a comment about my review on Bean Addicted two years ago! :-)

Wow, that was two years ago?!? I thought that was about a year ago. Ang tagal na pala hehehe. Oh yes, there are a lot of places to eat in Angono... I haven't tried them all. Rather, I keep on coming back to my favorite places but one day I will try to visit other food joints I haven't been to before. Maybe I could catch you to any of those places ;)

Hmmm...catching me in one of the food joints here in Angono is a possibility (given that I post photos here on my blog :-) but I'd love to meet readers of my blog as well.
