Tempura Japanese Grill – oishi desu ne!

It’s a good thing that my new office is just minutes away from #Leboyf’s office, and to some places where we can hang out and dine in during lunch time and after office hours. One of them is the Tempura Japanese Grill, best known for their bestselling tempura and many more.

What I like about this place is the ambiance, its service and their FOOD! Their tempura is light, flavorful and fresh, despite being smothered with batter before frying. Their tempura is best paired with japanese soy sauce (and wasabi, if you guys prefer that) and a piping bowl of Japanese rice. Just don’t forget to say “itadakimasu!” before your first bite!

King size Tempura is king sized, the biggest that I’ve seen

we were all busy talking about AlDub and technical definitions about Scrum and agile process (OHAI Kenny!) when we were served with their refreshing desserts. Did we scream for Ice cream? you bet!

Their matcha ice cream is so machalap #PunIntended

I’d say that if you’re craving for tempura, then this is a place to go!

Blogger Desk Essentials

Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Classic desk essentials

When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane. Pityful a rethoric question ran over her cheek, then she continued her way. On her way she met a copy.

The copy warned the Little Blind Text, that where it came from it would have been rewritten a thousand times and everything that was left from its origin would be the word “and” and the Little Blind Text should turn around and return to its own, safe country. But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again. And if she hasn’t been rewritten, then they are still using her.

Love Desserts – sweet tooth haven for dessert lovers

Yes, keep calm…*heavily breathing*

it is not a secret that I am NOT a fan of sweets, not because it’ll cause me to gain a few pounds, but this will trigger my migraine attacks (true story). anything that is too sweet to my taste will give me a bed rest for a day or two, and I don’t want this to happen. T_T

Love Desserts

But hey, not all desserts are sweet, and that’s why i’m glad that they had too much to offer here at Love Desserts in Banawe, Quezon City, a buffet restaurant that is perfect for those who love sweets and many more.

The place is located near the Z Square in Banawe/Del Monte, just beside Bruno’s barber shop. I advise you guys to NOT LOOK at the Google maps to locate this place, or else… (I’ve been there, and badtrip lang si Google Maps, grr!)

Well anyway, it is a surprise that the place is indeed a haven for dessert lovers, that the place is all jam-packed at the time it was opened, that my only complaint is for them to have a bigger space to accomodate more people who came here for their delectable delights.

As I said, they had too much to offer here, from their creamy cakes, souffles, cream puffs, brownies and many more. Forgive me if I’ll be spamming you with pictures of their sweet treats you guys! 🙂

Prelude to foodgasm. Yes Ms. Hepburn, you’re absolutely correct!
strawberry shortcake, cake rolls, cheesecakes, cream puffs, fudge brownies, etc. Hello calories, I’ll deal with you soon!
cheesecakes, cupcakes, fruit salad, singkamas, watermelon (yay for fruits!), cakes, cake rolls…kaya pa?
coz one picture is not enough to cover the entire row of cakes 😛
I scream for ice cream!
my kind of treats! iced gems, marshmallows, candy sprinklers, champola (I forgot the exact name so brand nalang :P), cookies. To be added in your own custom sherbet or crepe.
Fruity fillings for your own custom crepe. Love this I swear!
There are also shakes for everyone to enjoy! Here’s my chocolate shake!
Unlimited refills of iced tea and nai cha, and you can create your own halo halo!
cake roll
mini sweet treats!
Cream puff
Red velvet cupcake
more smores!
Have your own crepe, custom made for you <3

despite being a non-sweet lover, I simply can’t resist not having a slice of their cake, and here’s what I had:

Masarap ang shortcake nila! not too overpowering and not too sweet. it has a balance of fruitiness and sweetness na hindi nakakaumay. I’m almost finished it before I remembered to take pics, their fruit salad is also commendable, it has a perfect balance too. I’ve finished their panna cotta, calamansi sherbet ice cream and their mini cheesecake before I took this pic, sayang hindi nakaabot (natapon sa tiyan ko hindi ko na maretrieve :P)
my anti-umay remedies: tacos, singkamas, bagoong and empanada. They also have lugaw but ubos na. Empanada is served hot and fresh, filling is uber soft and yummy. Their tacos is a great ice breaker to all the sweet treats, same goes with their bagoong na buti nalang hindi malansa. (penge manggang hilaw pls!)
After our custom crepe, here’s my another dose of anti-umay treats: marshmallows, gummy treats, watermelon, banana, blueberry, strawberry, mangoes, candy sprinklers and nips. A balance of sweetness and fruitiness makes my tummy happy, and happy is an understatement. 🙂

I’m more of a fan of fruits for dessert, that’s why I hoard for their anti-umay treats (yay for fruit salad!) and I also commend this place for having cakes that are not too sweet for my palate (+1 for me!) and everything is IG-friendly (follow me!) for everything is oh-so pleasing to the eyes.

Have your unlimited fill of desserts for only 199 pesos!

Just Desserts is a great place for me and my friends (and of course my pamangkins) to hang outto enjoy their yummy delights, and the price is reasonable enough, considering that it’s a buffet restaurant. I can’t wait to be back soon! 🙂

It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad.

“How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was. He must have tried it a hundred times, shut his eyes so that he wouldn’t have to look at the floundering legs, and only stopped when he began to feel a mild, dull pain there that he had never felt before.

“Oh, God”, he thought, “what a strenuous career it is that I’ve chosen! Travelling day in and day out. Doing business like this takes much more effort than doing your own business at home, and on top of that there’s the curse of travelling, worries about making train connections, bad and irregular food, contact with different people all the time so that you can never get to know anyone or become friendly with them. It can all go to Hell!

” He felt a slight itch up on his belly; pushed himself slowly up on his back towards the headboard so that he could lift his head better; found where the itch was, and saw that it was covered with lots of little white spots which he didn’t know what to make of; and when he tried to feel the place with one of his legs he drew it quickly back because as soon as he touched it he was overcome by a cold shudder. He slid back into his former position. “Getting up early all the time”, he thought, “it makes you stupid. You’ve got to get enough sleep. Other travelling salesmen live a life of luxury. For instance, whenever I go back to the guest house during the morning to copy out the contract, these gentlemen are always still sitting there eating their breakfasts. I ought to just try that with my boss; I’d get kicked out on the spot. But who knows, maybe that would be the best thing for me. If I didn’t have my parents to think about I’d have given in my notice a long time ago, I’d have gone up to the boss and told him just what I
