Mom was asked to prepare breakfast for the attendees of Youth Camp, so we decided to go to the mall and do some grocery shopping. Brother was going to attend a retreat, but went with us to eat lunch first. We hoped to eat at Tong Yang shabu-shabu restaurant, but their "eat all you can" buffet was at Php500 (roughly 11USD) each person.
In our attempts to eat at different food places in the mall, we tried out Go! Fan Roasts and Dimsum. They had bowls of different rice toppings for individual orders, but they also serve it on a big platter if diners wanted to share. We opt to have the individual rice bowls, and since mom chose the Macau Lechon and brother went with Minced Duck, I just went with Braised Beef. We actually shared all our dishes, and while I loved their food, I was happier with my choice. This braised beef was seasoned well and very, very, tender. It was like melting in my mouth. A little bit fatty, yes (there's a layer of fat in the middle of each beef slices), but overall it was okay. I can always take away the fat, right? And the best thing about this was that it was only Php125 (2.75USD)... and I was so full afterwards.
And because I didn't bring my own camera, I used the old camera - which now belongs to my siblings.
