A home-grown Filipino concept from Baguio City, Don Henrico's Pizza, Pasta and More has been around for more than two decades with various branches within Metro Manila and Baguio City.

To be honest, I can barely recall the last time I dined at Don Henrico's.  I vaguely remember it was a family celebration where we availed of its Eat All You Can Promo.

So it is a good time to revisit and check them out again!

Food

Appetizers
petite mozzarella sticks
Petite Mozzarella Sticks (220 php)
Starting with the cheesy and gooey Petite Mozzarella Sticks.

Petite Mozzarella Sticks (220 php)
Paired with their Marinara Sauce, the Petite Mozzarella Sticks is perfect!

Salad
summer salad
Summer Salad (310 php for share)
The Summer Salad is my kind of salad healthy fruits!
oriental chicken
Oriental Chicken (260 php for share)
But, that's not to say that the Oriental Chicken appealed to my taste buds less.

Pasta

chili garlic shrimp pasta
Chili Garlic Shrimp Pasta in Olive Oil (340 php for share)
The Chili Garlic Shrimp Pasta in Olive Oil is my favorite among their pasta.  The generous toppings plus garlicky oil-bsed sauce is really captivating.

tutto de mare
Tutto De Mare Pasta (350 for share)
I'm usually in favor of tomato-based pasta because I like its tanginess.  The Tutto De Mare Pasta's blend is a balance between sweet and tangy.

crab fettucini
Crab Fetuccini (340 php)
The Crab Fetuccini is quite interesting.  Filipinos love crab fat!  And, this is one delicious treat for us!


Pizza
four cheese pizza
Four Cheese Pizza (610 php 14 inch)
The Four Cheese Pizza is the best choice for cheese lovers.  It's very rich in cheese flavor but not too salty because of their delectable bechamel sauce.

seafood romano pizza
Seafood Romano Pizza (610 php 14 inch)
The Seafood Romano Pizza is like the pizza counterpart of the Chili Garlic Shrimp Pasta in Olive Oil.  If I had to pick just one, I'd prefer the latter.

supreme pizza
Supreme Pizza (650 php 14 inch)
I don't know why but the Supreme Pizza is my last choice for pizza...


bacon cheeseburger pizza
Bacon Cheeseburger
Surprisingly, this healthy looking Bacon Cheeseburger is what wowed me!  Their Filipino-style soft dough bread-like crust goes really well with the bacon, ground beef patty and veggies.

  
Don Henrico's offers sharing portions for an affordable price.  It's definitely a better choice than fast food joints.  Between ala carte and their Eat All You Can Promo, perhaps I'd avail the promo.

As a foodie, I can be quite a cheapskate at times.Aside from following and liking Facebook Fan Pages of establishments and waiting for  their promos, I am also an avid fan of food apps.  My recent favorite is Eatigo which is the leading online reservations platform for restaurants in Asia because it has a lot of cool promos that I really can't resist.


In fact, this April 18, they have a really good promo called "WOW Wednesday" where you can dine out at 50% off.  And, what I like  about this deal is that it is valid for the whole day!  So you can have 50% off from breakfast till post-dinner.

Among the participating establishments are:
  • Barcino, the home of authentic Spanish cuisines;
  • Dillingers 1903, where steaks and pasta reign supreme; 
  • Alta at Ascott BGC, an American and Italian restaurant helmed by world-famous Chef Margarita Fores; 
  • Gelatofix, a lifestyle café specializing on a spectrum of dishes that complement their vast gelato flavors; 
  • Vengo, where you can find the marriage of a taqueria and coffee shop in one shop


Although the promo is on April 18, you can reserve as early as 12 midnight of April 16!  Better safe than sorry so reserve early!  If you haven't downloaded the app yet, get it here.
Follow Eatigo’s Facebook page and be updated on the next schedules of WOW Wednesday!

Last month, I was invited to partake on the Grand Opening Celebration of Elements Hall at Rallos.  I was expecting it to be just another food park but happy to find it was not!


elements hall at rallos
Although I visit food parks,  don't visit them during the day because of the heat and humidity of our summers. So I was happy to see that Elements Hall at Rallos is a building full of food joints. 


elements hall at rallos
Think of it as an air-conditioned mall but purely for food!  The second floor has standalone restaurants like the Red Pineapple and Twa Pak To and a food court called Picnic Grounds.


Red Pineapple



The Red Pineapple serves dimsum treats at affordable price.  I highly recommend their Taipao.

Twa Pak To

Another Chinese food choice is Twa Pak To.  I will surely try it if I have a chance to pass by Elements again.

Picnic Grounds

Clucky's

Clucky's

Fun fact!  Coincidentally, I have encountered Clucky's 6 years before.  That was a long time ago when my sister used to have study medicine and work at Medical City as part of her curriculum.  Now, my sister is already a doctor.  We loved Clucky's so I'm so glad that Clucky's has made a comeback after all these years.

Pair their chicken and Kimchi Rice and you'll surely enjoy it!

Ground Floor

Nina's Sweet Delicacies
Coming all the way from Bulacan is Nina's Sweet Delicacies.  It is a sister-company of Eurobake.  According to the staffs, Nina's is actually the name of their daughter.


ninas sweet delicacies
They offer free taste of their famous Inipit.

 Actually, the Inipit is a new discovery for me.  This is what Bulacan is famed for.  It's a light chiffon sandwich with a sweet and creamy custard in between.


malolos ensaymada
Eurobake is also famous for their Malolos Ensaymada.  I have now marked this as a perfect potluck contribution.

There are more shops in store so check Elements Hall at Rallos soon.

Everything seems fast-paced except for the stressful heavy traffic.  In the busy business district of Makati, I found refuge for comfort at After All Bar & Grill.

My young apprentice has been having financial, family and health problems so  I thought I could bring him here to chill out a bit. 

after all bar and grill
He shared that it was his first time ever to stop by the City of Makati.  He has passed through Makati but never actually visited it. 

after all bar and grill
After All has a bar but...

after all bar and grill
that's not really what we went after.  My apprentice is a musician.  Even at his teenage years, he plays in a church band and earns a living as a guitar tutor.  After All lets guests play if they want to.  I tried to encourage my young trainee but he was too shy.

Food

So, we just got on with the food.

Mains

Filipino Fiesta
crunchy pork sisig
Crunchy Pork Sisig (280 php)
We started off with their After All's best-seller: Crunchy Pork Sisig.  We loved this!  He even had extra rice just for this!


Tapas
romanian deviled squid
Romanian Deviled Squid (210 php)
I found the Romanian Deviled Squid really interesting.  And, it was cooked perfectly tender too!



glazed balls of fire
Glazed Balls of Fire (210 php)
My favorite for the night is actually and surprisingly the Glazed Balls of Fire.  The buffalo sauce complemented the tender and succulent meat balls well.


beef salpicao
Beef Salpicao (330 php)
Now, steak lovers will surely be delighted with their Wagyu Beef Salpicao.

crispy shrimps
Crispy Shrimps (250 php)
The Crispy Shrimps is a superb beer match.


calamares fritos
Calamares Fritos (240 php)
And, last but not the least of our order is the Filipino favorite Calamares Fritos.

Drinks


Rum

 
calibre
Calibre (150 php)

For drinks, we tried the Calibre which is Cuban libre infused with lime and sugar.  It was pretty smooth. 


Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
The pricing and food quality at After All Bar & Grill has exceeded my expectation.  Being located at SM Jazz which is a highly commercial and prominent area, I expected it to be more pricey.  I also loved the ambiance with great music.  The only thing that didn't satisfy me was the service.  Albeit having a few customers, we found it difficult to call the attention of the servers.  And when I told the server that the dish was a bit rare, he didn't say anything and just went away.
