Eating Birthday Dinner at Greenfields Garden Resto-Cafe

Celebrating my birthday is out of my plan, there was a part of me who would like too but there was part of me who doesn’t like too.  Anyway, instead of cooking something for my birthday we decided to went out for dinner tagging along our grandmother.

Eating out is economical and a wise decision than cooking at home, it will not just saves time but it will also save money because when celebrating it at home we couldn’t just eat alone without inviting or bringing food to my relatives, I could not just bring food to a neighbor’s house without bringing food to another and so on, typical Filipino culture.

Well, I have thought of eating at Harbour Chateau since I have not been there yet and I believed food wasn’t that expensive. We stopped their first to inquire but after finding out that their restaurant doesn’t suit, we went to Greenfields Garden Resto-Cafe situated at the back of a popular gas station. If I was not mistaken it was a snacks cafe first before it became a restaurant as well.

When we arrived we are directed to a vacant table but someone suggested we could used the air-conditioned room so we did, there was three tables inside one is vacant, the other one was occupied by young students and the smaller one was just been vacated by the family we met outside.

We sat and look at their menu, it was bit expensive than Laszaji Grill and Mac’s Chicken & Barbeque Haus but since we are already there and we would like to try their food we ordered the food we like.  I have ordered three baby back ribs for myself, my sister and our father and fish nuggets for our grandma. My mother cannot choose what meal to get, she like barbecue chicken but she would like try their fish nuggets, she end up with barbecue chicken on her disappointment complaining it was small compare to our orders and salty, she started showing dis-likeness (tantrums as J calls it) so I have ordered a fish nuggets for her so we could eat peacefully. I have asked myself if I was like this with J, if I was, I was indeed very childish.

We have red ice tea for our drinks and their complimentary cold water. While waiting for our order, I shared how J and I enjoyed our baby back ribs meal in Brussels, Belgium. It was classic especially the beverage we have ordered wasn’t included in our bill (maybe it was free with the meal) and we literally sneaked out not paying for it, we have to traveled six months around Eastern Europe and Eastern Africa that time so we did a little mischief.

The food was served shortly, it took them less than twenty minutes to serve it compare to other restaurants in town that took a life time before they could served our food. Well, maybe because we are the only one eating at that time that’s why the service is fast. Anyway the food was great, the baby back ribs was tender and juicy. The fish nuggets were good as well as the bulalo soup, it was superb to my mother who is a very picky eater and their carbonara was a steal for me, I finally found a restaurant that could served my favorite pasta. We ordered extra rice to satisfy ourselves and as requested my sister’s dessert was served last.

Well, if you are looking for a good place to eat withand would like to try other food other than grilled chicken Greenfields Garden Resto-Cafe is a must try, their servers were very accommodating too, it was located at Brgy. Tulay, Odiongan Romblon, at the back of Petron Gas station which is just a little bit far beyond the Brgy. Liwanag bridge, beside the petrol station is a rice field.

Ghetto Plates: The Sizzling Zone in Odiongan

My sister came home late from work and buying food to cook for dinner in the market is somehow not possible anymore so we decided to eat a sizzling dinner at Ghetto Plates again, since have enjoyed our first dine in experience.

There are more students eating dinner than we first came in, it seems the place is popular among students who stays in boarding houses in Odiongan. We seated on the same place and order the same food, the three of us chooses their mixed sisig (pork and chicken) for ₱50 each and we also ordered grilled chicken ₱110 and three more extra fried rice and their delicious ice cream in cup.

I have enjoyed our meal as well as their complimentary soup, I love how the ginger and black pepper taste together so when my mother didn’t touch her soup I asked for it and drink it all which I think a wrong moved because I woke up in the middle of the night with chills, shivering in cold but sweating which means I have a lot of toxins in my body, maybe the complimentary soup has a lot of MSG in it.

Sizzling Dinner at Ghetto Plates

There are times that we don’t feel like cooking at home especially when life become so busy or there are no fishes in the wet market. So when we take long in the market getting some order/items for my store we decided to eat dinner at Ghetto Plates.

Honestly, a few months ago we have planned to eat dinner at Ghetto Plates but then we decided to eat at Deli Hunter instead upon seeing that the restaurant is always busy. Anyway, Ghetto Plates is well known for their sizzling sisigs and delicious pizza, it was our first time to dine in and experience the vibe of the sizzling zone. We have avoided Ghetto plates thinking their food and pizza is expensive.

Previously, they have resto-bar at Torrel-Dapawan  but it closes and they moved to Tabing-Dagat (resto-bar) where a friend of mine had an awful experience but then it was gone just like the previous one and they remained in the old town wet market.

Contrary to what we believed, food at Ghetto plates were actually cheap.  Their food only cost a bit from student meal “kumo”. My sister and I ordered Chicken and Pork Sisig for ourselves while my mother chooses the chicken sisig that cost ₱50 each with complimentary sizzling soup.

We ordered a family size vegetable and meat pizza for take-out, spring roll ₱100 for 8 pieces and mixed sisig ₱90 for take-out as well and we had their savory ice cream for ₱20 each.

Well, if you are a student who’s already tired of eating a common student meal or someone who visited the town of Odiongan and looking for a sizzling meal  in a very affordable price, think no more and hop in to Ghetto Plates, they do deliveries too. You can find them at:

Eating Family Dinner at Jollibee Odiongan

For so many years, J and I have eaten to fast food restaurants especially when travelling.  We are so tired eating burgers and fried chicken, that we always look for Subway Cafe in every city we went too, we prefer their sandwich than eating burgers.  So, I have never eaten burger for so long when I came home, it was only when I got tired of eating local food.

Anyway, nothing special to dine out, a relative came home from abroad but my grandmother looks like a bankrupt Chinese all looking sad with matching teary eyes, so I guess she didn’t received any present and now she is seeking for attention because she only hang-out outside the compound looking blankly at people with her very sad face when she needs it.

With this, I decided to bring her to Jollibee Odiongan she was never been there since it was built and opened, so imagine how wide the smile on her face when she was told we are eating dinner at Jollibee. It was around seven in the evening when my family and grandmother went to Jollibee, and it was a bit busy and there was no vacant table to accommodate five people so I have asked if it is possible to eat upstairs but I was told just to use downstairs to my initial disappointment because the table that was given was a small round table for four people and the fifth chair will be positioned along the way blocking other people.  It wasn’t the first time Jollibee Odiongan made me feel bad, when we first dine in I was given a meal in a box when every body else was eating on their plate, dunno what is this fast food against me (lol). Honestly, I was asked that time if possible they could just served me a meal in the box because it was already available, I was surprised and because I don’t want to create a scene for being picky and stalling the line up, I just said ok but deep inside I felt bad (lol).

Since, they disappointment me for the second time I dine in, I just mentioned what to order and let my sister order it for us.  Gladly, a more spacious table was vacated so we moved.  We ordered five of their chicken joy super meals and pineapple juice as drink since cola isn’t allowed for my mother, five halo-halo Sundaes and extra order of Jolly spaghetti for me.

My grandmother was very happy being able to see and eat at Jollibee Odiongan, her smile is priceless. While eating I realized I am acting out and being childish, I am eating in a fast food restaurant and not in a fine dining so I should not expect a better table and maybe they have already clean and sanitized the second floor so it wasn’t allowed to use, but it is a way too early to clean isn’t it? Oh, well maybe they’re saving operational cost. I let my disappointment go and just enjoy the quality time with my family.  I was given a survey card and I didn’t vent out my disappointment in it, I shaded all positive reviews.

Since eyes is bigger than the stomach my sister and I ordered another set of a meal consisting rice and chicken with free cola which we just brought home after failing to consume it and realizing maybe we are not fair I have also ordered extra burger for my family which they also brought home since they’re all full.
