My family and I have been busy the past few days attending to our friends and family gatherings. It’s always nice to reconnect with them especially when long and casual talks and delicious foods are involved.
Since my mom-in-law is here until end of this month, with my brother-in-law from San Leandro, California, there has been a lot of eat-outs almost every weekend since they arrived 3 weeks ago.
One blog-worthy feast we had was held at ZONG, at the Fort. For one, it was our first time to dine there that made me and my wife a bit excited to try their specialties that were much raved by its loyal patrons.
Sister-in-law sponsored this dinner making it more fun! LOL!
Finally, we got to taste the much talked about pan fried chicken cooked with salted egg and served on a bed of crispy prawn chips.
CHICKEN in SALTED EGG YOLK. Classic chicken leg quarters pan fried with salted egg. SARAP! I love how the chicken was fried to perfection and fused with saltiness of the red egg. It was heaven every bite! 🙂 Definitely, a-must-try!
clockwise : Yang Chow Fried Rice, Braised E-Fu Birthday Noodles and Sauteed Beef and Broccoli in Black Pepper Sauce.
It was absolutely love at first bite at ZONG. 🙂 My wife and I like every dish we ordered. The Sauteed Beef and Broccoli in Black Pepper Sauce is another hit! I like its mild kick of spice perfectly blended with the crunchiness of the broccoli and the tenderness of the beef slices. Yum! 🙂
It’s a happy-sad feeling that I’ll be leaving this week for work in Malaysia but if given a chance again (when I come home) to choose from the countless food places at Bonifacio High Street, definitely, ZONG will be on top of my list.
ZONG, The Fort Strip, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Metro Manila.
Other than my in-laws, one of my long time friends of 17 years and counting is also home for his every-three-month-work break. Rob (of SENSORY REPLAYS blog) religiously treats Tina, Gabby and I with another great friend, LG for lunch or dinner every time he leaves his paramedic-work in a rig in Middle East.
The first of his treats (yes, there was second, and third recently which are worthy of another post soon) was at a Japanese restaurant that Tina and I so like. It’s KIMONO KEN in Shangri la Plaza.
Long before my 14-day-TOKYO TRIP last March, my family and I have been keeping a love affair with Japanese foods. Just look at this blog’s right side bar, and you’ll note that we really frequent Japanese restos in the Metro. Tina and Gabby like Ebi and Kani Tempura while my meal in Japanese food places isn’t complete without any of my favorite 3S : sushi, sashimi, sukiyaki.
Take a peek at our Kimono Ken feast…

SEAFOOD YAKISOBA and SHOYU RAMEN
KANI TEMPURA and GOMOKU RAMEN
SUKIYAKI, another personal favorite!
Nothing beats awesome moments with family and friends amidst gastronomic indulgence.
Enjoy your new week, everyone.
It’ll be a whole new universe for me beginning Thursday midnight this week as I take this blog and you (yes, you!) to my new work place as I teach in a Medical College in Penang, Malaysia.
