Thursday is the New Sunday

1 Dec

Ever since my brother started working at Academy of Rock as a drum teacher, we hardly see each other anymore.  He now works everyday except Thursdays.  So we now make sure to have lunch every Thursday with our parents 🙂

For two consecutive Thursdays, we have been eating at our favorite resto at the moment.  Lugang Cafe.  My mom says it’s pronounced as Lu-Kang.  We go to the nearer branch from us which is Greenhills.  And since my mom is a Metrobank Card Holder (Platinum, Gold or whatever that card color is… LOL!), we get a 50% discount from our total bill!!! 🙂  What a really great deal!

So these past two Thursdays have been Lugang Cafe Thursdays! 🙂

Check out what we ordered the first Thursday…

Aloe Jelly in Honey Lemon Juice (P130) and Iced Fruit Tea (P130)

Watermelon with Coconut Milk and Sago (P120)

Steamed Xiao Long Bao (P228).  A must.

Crispy Chicken 1/2.  Forgot the price of this one…

Eggplant with Minced Pork in Clay Pot (P280). This is my personal favorite! 🙂

Mayonnaise Prawns (P680).  And this is Chris’ favorite 🙂

Dong Bo Pork Belly with Steamed Buns (P420).  This was everyone’s favorite!!! 🙂

Stuff that pork in the bun!!! YUM…

Here’s my bro, Chris 🙂

And the coolest parents ever! 🙂

LUGANG CAFE LUNCH.  Week 2. Haha!  Check out the repeat orders…

Of course, Xiao Long Bao.  Never leave Lugang without it.

My turn to try the Aloe Jelly with Honey Lemon Juice.  Love it!  Refreshing beverage 🙂

Mom tried the Coffee Jelly.

Chris’ request was the Taro Spareribs Casserole.  Hmm.. I still prefer Taro only in Ice Blended Tea Drinks. Haha!

Taro Spareribs Casserole P380

Pineapple Fried Rice (P290)

We actually got to Lugang Cafe a bit late the second Thursday and there were lots of dishes that were unavailable already.  So we ended up getting a classic favorite:  Sweet and Sour Pork! Can’t go wrong with that 🙂

Sweet and Sour Pork (P290)

It was the Xiao Long Bao and the Mayonnaise Prawns that we just had to order again 🙂

Mayonnaise Prawns, the repeat! 🙂

These scallops were pretty good, too.

Steamed Scallop with Garlic Vermicelli (P480)

I would definitely go back and pay full price for a meal in Lugang Cafe! Probably wouldn’t order as much as we did though. Haha! 🙂 But the food and service were excellent.  Even if they were super packed, food came out fast and the staff were very efficient and non-stressful at all 🙂

Watch out where we will be next Thursday! 🙂

HOLY MAMA!  I just checked out Lugang Cafe’s Facebook Page and their Metrobank Promo has been extended guys!!! December 1-15, 2012 and January 2-16, 2013!!!! Paging Chris, Dora and Raul Cantada! PAGING! PAGING!!!

This post is especially dedicated to my older brother, Ochie! 🙂 We await your return! Haha!


Taiwanese Anyone?

22 Jun

After our morning shopping trip to Uniqlo, Mall of Asia, we decided to have lunch there to treat our dearest Tatay to lunch.  It was a late Father’s Day celebration because last Sunday was just so full of eating events, Baptisms and reunions.  So we decided to treat our Dad last Tuesday 🙂

We actually didn’t know where to eat yet so we checked the mall directory 🙂  My older brother spotted Lugang Cafe in the list.  And the choice was made 🙂

I absolutely loved the interiors of this place. Completely did not think it would look like this since I was expecting a typical Asian restaurant with simple interiors and round tables 🙂

Drinks were massive 🙂

Three-cup Chicken. A house special.

Pineapple Rice.

Eggplant with Spicy Sour Sauce in Clay Pot. My personal favorite 🙂


Stir-Fry Beef with Chili Peppers

Steamed Pork Xiao Long Bao. Ready… set… gooooo!!!

Admiring this little dumpling 🙂  So yummy!!! 🙂 We had two orders of these 🙂

PEANUT SMOOTHIE. OMG. This, I must say, one of the best desserts I’ve tried ever 🙂 I just want to stuff this smoothie in a glass and drink it with a straw. So refreshingly yummy. A MUST TRY.

Overall, it was a great meal 🙂  But that Peanut Smoothie just stole the show.  I cannot wait to go back to try the other desserts and other house specials like the minced pork.  That looked really good, too.  Ayayay!

Best part of the meal was being able to hang with my parents and brothers after shopping at Uniqlo 🙂  Wish there were more days like these 🙂
