An Aristocrat Kiddie Party Meal

foodie adventures, dining out, restaurants

We had the chance to attend an Aristocrat Kiddie Party just last week and we really had quite a wonderful experience. This is the adult platter I got for myself and I must tell you, even when I was not able to sample all the dishes that were served that day, I simply love their pork barbecue with peanut java sauce, as well as the fresh lumpiang ubod, being a veggie lover myself. I also love the crunchy fish fillet with tartar sauce.

And can you just imagine the meal platter they served for the kiddos? Yes, they have a separate meal for the kids and it is fully loaded with burger, chicken lollies, pork barbecue and spaghetti. Any child would have been delighted, except for my little man who has very unique food fetish.

Oh well, we also capped our meal with this decadent dessert, which name escapes me now, it was recommend to us by one of the party hostesses and who am I to pass up the chance, right? And I am glad I tried it. It was delicious without being too sweet. Just the way I like my desserts.

This one-of-a-kind kiddie party is simply one of the best we’ve attended. It was complete with clowns on stilts, story telling activities as well with a magical kalesa ride come sunset. I bet if the birthday celebrants asked for it, the hosts will gladly throw cushions on the patio and decorate the entire place with their favorite Cartoon characters, too!

addicted to chowking

the little man took a snap shot of my Lauriat platter

I do not know what it is about Chowking and their pancit canton that makes my little man so addicted. It is probably our most frequented fast food to date. Oh well, I cannot really complain much since compared to most of its contemporaries, I believe that Chowking serves the healthiest food, not to mention they have the widest variety in their menu. And do not forget the endearing local dessert, halo-halo, of course!

For some reason the little man only wants the Chowking pancit canton, so that is what we order for him every time we go there, and a big glass of pineapple juice. He’d agree to have a bit of chicken and rice, but will always want to eat pancit every single time! If only he’d eat the veggies that go with the pancit then I will be such a happy mum, but he’d ask me to remove each and every bit of them until all that’s left are the noodles before he starts eating!

After taking our afternoon nap {which happens really very seldom, I tell you!} earlier he requested that we go to Chowking again. We just went there last Sunday but the little one cannot seem to have enough of Chowking so I agreed. It is a convenient way to have dinner, anyway since I do not have to spend hours in the kitchen preparing food that he will probably not eat! So off we go.

We had a nice dinner, Jared got his usual order while I tried another one of their rice dishes. I also had kangkong with bagoong since I am craving for greens.

After dinner, we were off to the nearby mall for a quick errand. We bought Jared’s milk from the grocery and made a quick stop to browse through the standsandmounts dvd cabinets that was on sale at the nearby furniture and fixture shop.

HAVE A GOLDI-GOOD MOTHER’S DAY CELEBRATION

Mother’s day is not just another celebration. It is one of the most important days of the year, simply because it’s a way for us to show our appreciation to one of the most important women in our lives.

True to the very nature of mothers, the thing they value most are moments of bonding with their family, children, family, and friends. Given this, what better way to celebrate mom’s special day than to organize a fun and lively get-together? Goldilocks offers two meal packages – appropriately named the ‘Oh My Mama’ set and the ‘Love You Mom’ set – which includes a yummy noodle dish, two delectable appetizers, a 1.5 liter bottle of Coke, and an amazing half roll of signature black forest for dessert. The best part is that both meal sets are surprisingly affordable at only P799. That leaves more room in the budget for extra mother’s day treats, which can include a heart-shaped Choco Caramel or Double Dutch cake, where a special greeting for mom can be written.

Create sweet moments by heading to the nearest Goldilocks Bakeshop, or call 888-1-999 Go-Delivery to make this Mother’s Day a Goldi-Good one!
