Breakast at Antonio's

I almost skipped going to Breakfast at Antonio's with my friends. It was scheduled on a weekday which means I have work. But good thing I was able to manage my schedule and made that particular Thursday my off from work. I was really happy I joined the rest of the mommies.

It was a two-hour drive from Manila with about 30 - 40 minutes stop at Jollibbe Shell at South Luzon Express Way (SLEX) for a quick breakfast. We arrived at Antonio's maybe a little past twelve noon.

That was my second time to be at Breakfast at Antonio's but the first one was a long time ago with my husband and daughter. It has changed a lot for the better. The restaurant is just so elegant. I love the set-up, the ambiance, and the floor tiles are wonderful. The restroom still has an open window but a lot smaller than how it was before. Yes, the restroom has a wide open window. Use it at your own risk. Haha, but no, it's safe to use.

Anyway, we chose five different foods mostly from their house specials - pasta, roast chicken and omelettes.

Methinks this is one of the house specials, Chorizo and Eggs. We all love this.

Sausage omelette if my memory serves me right. I love the house potato as a side dish.

This one I was not able to have a taste of because I was so full, Spaghetti Pomodoro.

Mixed Seafood Tagliatelle in Tomato Basil and well, anything with shrimp I want.

My friends found this salty but we finished it off nonetheless, Rosemary Paprika Roast Chicken with Rock Salt Potato Fries. That was a mouthful, haha.

And that's the garlic bread. :)

And here's us...
Starting from left to right, your left, :D, Julie, Chats, Cookie, Me and Cess.

Pasta for Lunch at Figaro

Out for lunch with one of my best-friends-for-life. We took the chance to meet-up with the extra time we had on that day. After several exchange of texts where we will have lunch, I finally decided I want pasta, pasta from Figaro in particular, Figaro's arrabiata to be specific.

It slipped my mind what my friend ordered. Looking at Figaro's menu, I think this is Dory Provencal. Maybe she just changed her pasta.

One thing I don't quite get with Figaro is the "open bill" question whenever I order. Do I pay it already or later? I normally pay immediately if I won't order anymore. Order again and that's another service charge I guess.

I was having a bad hair day here but anyway it was a nice lunch, nice company. I just hope we can do this more often.
