Glazed in Maple and Song

One Saturday evening after my weekly Saturday mass “gigs” at the park, (yes, I still play the guitar and sing for the Dasma Youth Choir. Hehehe… About 14 years now!) some of my closest friends in the choir decided to have dinner together.  Especially since, Matthew, our talented violinist, was only here in Manila for a few days.  He is now based in Japan.  Boohoo!!! 😦

We decided to eat somewhere nearby.  We chose Maple located at the 2nd Floor of the San Antonio Plaza Arcade, across the San Antonio Church in Forbes Park, Makati 🙂

I literally grew up with these guys.  I knew them since they were young and innocent.  Well, they are still very young… Innocent?  A lot has changed, right, Matthew? HAHAHA! Just kidding 🙂  It was our very first time to share a bottle of wine together.  A very grown up dinner indeed! Haha! 🙂

Meet my friends, Chris and Marco 🙂  (You’re so “bagay”.  I always tell them. Hehe!)  Chris, has the most beautiful voice.  And every time she sings with us at the choir, it’s like God sending us an Angel 🙂

I was starving from our “performance”. LOL! So thank God for these starters!

New England Clam Chowder (P250). “A creamy and hearty soup with potatoes, clams and bacon, served with a toasted garlic baguette.”

According to the menu, this was one of their specialties… the Eggs Benedict 🙂

Eggs Benedict (P315) “A Maple Signature topped with Canadian Bacon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce served with crunchy country fries.”

Was very tempted to order the Eggs Benedict but I decided to go for the burger!  Oh yeah! 🙂 And I was so glad I did.

The Maple Burger (P475) “A juicy grilled beef patty, topped with American cheese, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, deep fried onion rings and bacon with a side of Bistro fries.”

The beef patty was soft and juicy, just the way I like it! Winner dinner.  Loved the burger.  Definitely a must-try!  And if my taste buds were right, the bacon was glazed in maple syrup.  Even the bun was delicious.

Here’s a closer look at the Maple Burger:

So fun catching up with you guys again!  And not just discussing what songs to sing for offertory and communion.  LOL!  I still can’t believe that you guys are all grown up now! Haha!  But I’m so grateful that one thing has always been constant among us no matter what… 6PM Saturday Mass at the Dasma Park 🙂
