RAC’s Baby Rock

When it comes to good food there are few places that I highly recommend for you to dine here in Victorias.

I will individually make an article about it. Right now,  let me start with this one hole in the wall.

If you are a first timer in Victorias you will surely miss this place since the area is quite small. It is squeezed between Manang Trading and TRAMCAR. However if your sense of smell is as sensitive as mine you will surely find the place. The aroma of sauteed onions and garlic intermingling with the scent of fresh ground beef is astounding and that what welcomes you in their doorway.

The inside of the café is quite small but the feeling of coziness compensate the smallness of the area. When you get to bite with their specials for sure you will forget the measurement of the space and instead appreciate the tastefulness of the food they served.

 

The Beefy Slider (Php 60.00)  is the first on my list. The patty is perfectly pan-fried with enough seasoning on it,sandwich in a toasted bun with slices of tomatoes, onions and lettuce. They also spread it with their special sauce.

Another favorite is the Hungarian Chili Con Carne (Php 50.00), slices of sausages on a hotdog bun topped with ground beef, chopped onions and tomatoes with spicy Texan sauce.

If you want to be healthy, they also have Chicken Asparagus (Php 35.00) and Chicken Waldorf (Php 70.00) sandwiches. I have heard they now serve Tuna sandwich too, isn’t it great…delicious and healthy!

Oh before I forget, they too baked one of the best Revel Bars (Php 25.00) I tried, better than Bob’s (that’s my personal opinion). The chocolate (I believe it’s Nutella) that swirls in with the butter that create a somewhat marbled effect in the bar makes it look so enticing and I had a hard time resisting the bite.

Delightfully Tuy’z

Another great place to dine in and hang out here in Victorias is the place called Tuy’z.

This one is easy to find, it is right in front of the public plaza and also along the highway. What makes this special is they serve good food that makes your every penny worth.  The place is one of the decent restaurants around here, service is quite efficient especially  that you can call them in  advance to have your order made and have it picked up.

This restaurant has been serving the people of Victorias for quite sometime.  I have seen them grow. Before, they were serving just pizza, some coolers and a few meals, now their menu board has a wide range of dishes.  You can choose from coolers, shakes, pizzas, short

orders, value meals and more comforting foods (see the additional new menu board below)

Why it is on my list…because this is the only restaurant in the city that serve Shawarma

Rice (Php 50.00/with egg Php 60.00) the way I like it…it has more meat, more veggies, and topped with rich garlic and hot sauce.  You can even request more sauce  if you want to and

that’s heaven for me.

Recently, I tried their Buffalo Wings (Php 140.00), the succulent wings  smothered in a spicy sweet sauce is definitely lip-smacking good. It was too late then to take a photo when what’s left on my plate were all bones (sorry guys no picture of those wings, can’t blame someone like me crazy for chicken wings *wink). But I got a photo of Crunchy Squid Rings (P120.00) and Sizzling Bangus (P110.00), both are blissfully satisfying.13689656_1731747473754701_759255083_n13689703_1731747467088035_181647283_n

Aside from that,  chocolate and java shake (Php 30.00) are the best. The pleasantly strong bitter sweet chocolatey flavor that you get in every sip of that shake makes you decide to have another a second and perhaps a third one  or more Smile .

These days, aside from regular shakes they too serve Frappes (P50.00) in flavors (I remember) of Strawberry, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Green Tea (I believe they’re the first in Victorias to serve green tea flavored frappe).

So why don’t you visit Tuy’z and try it, believe me it’s two thumbs up!

Hotcake, finally

Streetfood are amazingly delightful to eat…It’s tasty and inexpensive.

One of my favorites are hotcakes. They’re yellow, smothered in margarine then sprinkled with granulated sugar.  Rapsa.

I always wanted to make one. So I started to search online. There are thousands of recipes available but one that catches my attention is from a blog called Russian Filipino Kitchen. I was so thankful that I found her blog and her recipe. It’s exactly the kind of hotcake I want to make. I was so excited, saved her page in my Pocket ( a very helpful app for offline reading) and tried making it earlier.

Looks – forgot the yellow food coloring… I failed in that area =)

It was a good try for a first timer. I will surely make one again probably next weekend.
