Meeting Jacobo’s Management

July 27, 2009 at 7:37 am (food) (, , , , , , )

It was a Saturday Night and after checking out the cool cars at CAR TALK AT THE WALK, we headed to Jacobo’s Bistro for dinner and refreshments. I have reviewed Jacobo’s Bistro before and had swore to go back for their Salt & Pepper Spare Ribs! While we were ordering, the manager approached our table and said that they had read my review and were grateful for the good review! Then we were intorduced to the President of Jacobo’s Bistro, Ms. Monica Huertas. 

We also met one of the owners of Jacobo’s Bistro, who is very lovely by the way.
That night we got the same excellent service from the staff like our first visit and gladly we got a bigger table this time! And there were more entrees on the menu! 
And The Bistro Chopsuey tastes great! The sauce tasted like shrimp and squid broth and the veggies were sauteed just right; still crisp!

Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng

July 25, 2009 at 9:46 am (food) (, , , , )

7-22-09: Shake, Pao and I headed to Coffee Dream Gorordo to wait for my brother Edd to finish their “Persons” group study. It was a haven for law students; quiet and less crowded!
So we were there enjoying the free wifi connection, watching videos from Super Junior to Wonder Girls. We are such Kpop Fans! hehe.
Then my tummy started grumbling and ordered Corned Beef Sandwhich and Arizona Tea with Ginseng!

Arizona Green tea with Ginseng tasted blunt and plain considering its priced at 130, I expected it to be a little strong. I tried tasting natual Lychee tea from Shenzhen China and it tasted a whole lot better and its much cheaper, prized at 3Yuan (around22php). Arizona’s bottle is sooo cool, though. I placed it on my wine cabinet and it looks great! gonna buy the other 3 flavors to complete the set! hehehe.

Kablaaam on my Fave Mash!

July 20, 2009 at 5:30 am (food) (, , , , , )

My siblings and I share the same love for Mashed potatoes. and we would agree that the best Mashed Potato in town is at Dessert factory!

Just recently, my bro Edd and I had dinner with our friends at Dessert Factory Ayala Center Cebu to grieve our failed attempt to watch HP6 because tickets were sold out!

Edd and I were boasting that Dessert Factory’s Mashed Potato was the best in town and a must try! The smooth mashed poatato topped with oozing hot and delicious gravy which we shared and enjoyed with everyone until Edd chewed on something….. a sticker!

fortune mashed Potato!

Yeap, a sticker! We were laughing around jokingly saying “CONGRATULATIONS” like it was a price or words of wisdom from a fortune Cookie! We called for a manager to report the incident and in a few minutes a manager came. Edd narrated the unfortunate incident and the first thing that came out of the Manager’s mouth was “DILI TINGALI NA SA MASHED POTATO SIR, SA CHIKEN TINGALI NA!” (it might not be from the mashed potato but from the Chicken). And suddenly our table went silent and blank faces clouded the table! DUH! It really wouldn’t matter on where it came from, it’s there and she should have apologized and it would have been okay. But noooo, her follow up statement was “sure ka sa Mashed potato na sir” (are you sure it’s from the Mashed potato).” Again our faces went blank and eyes rolling around the table seeing Pao, Greg and Shake starting to get annoyed and irritated. So we asked fot he bill, and the manager’s resolution was to have the mashed potato on the house. So when we got the bill, there was MASHED POTATO on the bill! so much for a resolution. Greg was so pissed off so he called the manager again! and reported the Mashed potato on the bill which was supposed to be slashed off the bill. So we have to wait again for around 5 minutes for the refund. And when the manager came back, she also had slashed the buffalo wings off the bill. Resolved? Not really. It’s not what was slashed off the bill, but the service and the sincere apology should have been the resolution.

Though this may be a bad experience with one of my fave restos in Cebu, would still love to comeback to Dessert Factory! (I love their Buffalo wings, Boneless Crispy Pata, Pork Belly and my fave Mashed Potato) I just hope the people at the kitchen should be more careful with what they serve and managers/supervisors should be trained better with situations like this.

Free Baller Bands until tomorrow

July 16, 2009 at 6:26 am (food) (, , , , , , , , , )

Yeap, they are free when you upsize your Mcdo meals to Coke Zero when ordering online!
Coke Zero Baller Bands

Though my first experience with the Mcdo online ordering system was frustrating, I think it’s a great idea they have the system. The experience was frustrating because I specified on the remarks section of the Fill out Form that I would not be ordering if the baller bands are not available, but when our orders arrived, the baller bands were not delivered. I have to call the order hotline twice and there were even no update calls from the branch that catered our order making the experience more frustrating. so much for customer service!

But yeah, Baller bands were delivered 4 hours after the orders were delivered.

I would still be ordering online because its convenient, but Mcdo staff receiving should be more attentive!!!!!

to order online and get your free baller band visit .
Promo is until July 17, 2009 and is not valid for breakfast orders.

Jacobo’s Bistro

July 16, 2009 at 6:14 am (food) (, , , , , , , , )

Jacobo’s Bistro, a newly opened resto bar in Cebu, is quite a neat place. Vic, Edd, Shake, Greg, Chai and I were looking for a new chillax place and found one! Jacobo’s Bistro, pronounced as Hacobos, is located on the ground floor of the building across i1(at the back of Tara’s Cafe, IT park).

Jacobo's Dining Experience

We ordered Mashed Potato(35php), Plain Rice(30php), Jacobo’s Crispy Pata and Salt and Pepper Spare ribs! I enjoyed the salt & pepper spare ribs for its semi sweet pepper chili taste and tender meat. And who doesn’t love Crispy Pata. Jacobo’s Crispy pata tastes like home made crispy pata with spring onions garnished on top of it! very yummy!

Jacobo's Crispy Pata

Jacobo's Peppered Ribs

What was great about Jacobo’s is the service.Very warm staff and very attentive waitresses.

Jacobo's Entertainment

With a few entrees(and mostly beer munchers) on the menu, that made me think it’s made more of a chillax place than a resto for dining; and not to mention the tables are quite small to fit 5 plates and 2 dishes on the middle(basing on our table size which was for 5peeps). But still we enjoyed the food and the place. There also was an acoustic band playing which made the place more welcoming.

Jacobo's Bill Holder

And Price is fair enough, being billed 905php for 2 dishes(huge crispy pata & Spare ribs), 5 drinks, 2 mashed potatoes and 7 Rice.

4 out of 5 stars For Jacobo’s Bistro!
Food – 4
Service – 5
Ambiance – 4
