A Weekend Food Trip to San Fernando

The best part of any road trip are the food stops. And any drive to San Fernando, Pampanga won't be complete without the mandatory food stops.  Sometimes the journey, more than the destination, makes any trip a little more special.  And for my mom and aunt, it was also a short trip back in time...

And off we go on a short road trip...

CPK's Tomato Basil Spaghettini

When life doesn't go according to plan, which happens quite a lot, one needs to roll with the punches. And sometimes, even the simplest of things can bring so much pleasure. Sometimes all you need is a plate of pasta  to get through a rough day.

California Pizza Kitchen's Tomato Basil Spaghettini (P 185+ for a Personal serving), just the right size to make things right on a rough day.

Ebun Barag: Not Your Usual Egg Hunt

My mom and aunt decided to go on an egg hunt last weekend, and both were determined to bring back some unusual and truly exotic eggs. They were after Ebun Barag, monitor lizard eggs, and according to them, this was the season. I decided to come along and join them in their adventure, and off we go...and after an hour and half's drive, we arrive at San Fernando, Pampanga.

A quick stop at my Aunt's ancestral home, and we resume the search for the seasonal eggs. I've never tried Ebun Barag before, but I thought this would be an interesting road trip. Both my mom and aunt reminisced about their childhood and the pleasures of Ebun Barag, and encouraged me to give it a try, at least once. But just thinking about it gave me goosebumps, anything reptilian just gives me the creeps. I mean, seriously, I think even Andrew Zimmern  just might blink on this. But then again, maybe not.

A Taco Trifecta at B&T Mexican Kitchen

Jamaica goes for a 1-2-3 finish at the 200m Sprint. The US Women's Beach Volleyball Team completes a three-peat. The US Women's Football Team clinches a third straight gold. And Team USA Men's Basketball, who successfully defended their 2008 Olympics medal and a 2010 FIBA championship, wins a third straight international title. These and other amazing stories from a city that has hosted an Olympics event three times (1908, 1948 and 2012). Good things seem to come in threes, and I thought of having a little trifecta of my own...and with Mexico's stunning Olympic gold medal win over Brazil in football, going Mexican seemed appropriate.

B&T Mexican Kitchen has some of the best tacos in the metro, and I go for a trifecta with Carne Asada (steak), Carnitas (shredded pork) and Cabeza (ox mask) combo.

A Little Sunshine and Southwestern Flavors at Chili's

The rains have finally eased up, but the skies remained grey.  A little taste of sunshine would be nice. 

Southwestern flavors on a grey overcast day seemed to be a good idea. And Chili's is definitely the place.
