Photohunt: Breakfast




Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's Eggs Ben--a concoction of Rosemary focaccia bread with cheese, turkey ham, poached egg and Hollandaise sauce.

Although this one's a bit pricey for breakfast (at close to P150 if my memory serves me right), it is nonetheless visually appetizing, which I suppose makes it apt for this theme. This was ordered by somebody else from our group when JC was kind enough to treat us at CBTL during his birthday so I personally didn't get to taste this. My feedback weren't all that good though. They said the taste was ok, but not really good value for your money, but the serving size really left something to be desired. Of course, he did eat this for dinner so you might want to try it out yourself though.


Tosilog: Tocino, Sinangag at Itlog (Honey cured pork, Fried Rice and egg!)

Now this is a more traditional Filipino breakfast. This is what we ate when my friend Chin and Khloe came over here last year to see the country. While in itself not visually appealing, it is more satisfying and a whole lot cost-effective at just P32 per plate. Of course us Asians prefer rice to bread, so that might explain the increased satiety of this one compared to the first one.

(This last one is not actually my photo. You might want to check this out to see the source and to read more about her experience with this and her other adventures here in the Philippines.)

I'm not Asian, but I think the second one looks a lot better than the first. I could handle rice for breakfast. Yum! And I like simpler food without all the sauces.

Clara said...

I have a question for you. Where did you get your label cloud. I love it!

Ladykli said...

Your breakfasts look interesting. I think I would be willing to give both a try.

My breakfast is served!

@Alohapenny: Hehe... I don't see wow, but thanks I guess...

@PM: Hehe :p

@Vanny: Haha... enjoy CBTL!

@Cym: Hehe

@Clara: I happen to agree with you... as for the tag cloud, I googled it, I don't remember where though... then manually fed the links... tedious process I'm telling you.

@Ladykli: Give the 2nd one a try when you come over, only may I suggest a classier place

@Alice: But not the 2nd I suppose hehe

@Helga: Possibly more than P150, I didn't pay so I couldn't really remember hehe... I'm inclined to think you might be right.
