music and dining out

We finally managed to get out of the house recently, and ate in one of my favorite restaurants, Kenny Rogers Roasters. Of course, we had our usual order of chicken and a couple of side dishes. I had my current favorite, potato salad and the classic mac n’ cheese. It was a good thing that even though the branch in Trinoma was brimming with people as usual, we still managed to find a table as soon as we got there. Nothing looks better than the site of families and friends bonding together over good food with lovely, relaxing music in the background. I bet restaurants play these music on purpose to whet their customers appetites even more.  They have probably equipped their businesses with top-of-the-line players and stock up on those great CD collections. They must have also invested on other music gears and instruments and save on recording king resonator guitar at guitar center by buying them in bulk. 

Oh well, I had to eat the whole platter by myself since Jared opted for another serving of Chowking’s Pancit Canton. Needless to say, I was so full after we are done eating, that I had to rest for a bit while the little man tinkers with my mobile phone playing one of his favorite apps. But it was all good, as I know meals from this restaurant are not only satisfying but also healthy. I look forward to our next family date and dining out adventure. 🙂

It has been awhile since we have gone out with my sisters since they are both tied up at work. It has also been awhile since we tagged along my nephew Sean and the little man is simply missing him. It was a good thing we had a little get together last month. We had a really wonderful time. One of the stops we had to make when we decided to go to SM Marilao to watch the new Ironman flick {the little man and I are seeing it for the second time :)}, is Kenny Rogers Roasters for lunch. Choosing a place to dine in is really quite tricky. If you’d ask my son, he’d readily suggest that we go to Chowking, instead, while Sean is pointing us to another kid-friendly fast food, KFC. In the end, the grown ups prevail and we settled in a nice and comfy spot at Kenny Rogers.

We ordered food good enough for the little ones’ choosy appetite and the grown ups’ hungry stomach. We had oriental chicken, along with a bunch of side dishes, among them our favorite mac and cheese, and desserts. The nephew also opt for for a fruit shake, while we chose a pitcher of iced tea. The nephew was complaining about the chicken but finished the food on his plate anyway. 😀 Jared was preoccupied with other stuff as usual, but cannot resist his favorite chicken and noodle soup!

The food was gone after less than half hour and we even forgot to take photos of them. Hungry much! 😀

Nothing beats eating good food and eating them with the family. It sure is a perfect bonding activity. Our hearty meal was also accompanied by nice bass drum music, that made our dining experience all the more pleasant. I cannot wait for our next gastronomic adventure! 🙂
