The meal that we love the most is breakfast! It’s really amazing to see so many establishments coming up with all day breakfast meals already. Probably because breakfast gives out that positive vibe and I guess Filipinos are fond of breakfast meals. You do see it around the metro where different restaurants sells the famous breakfast meals like the Tapsilog (Beef strips, with fried rice and sunny side-up egg) or longsilog (this time, it’s pork that looks like sausage).
We tried out Early Bird Breakfast Club for dinner, right after we got off from work. It just screams morning vibes when you get inside the establishment. It had that cozy and inviting feeling to it. Plus, to add to their decor, the menu’s are transformed into newspapers. Now that’s starting the day right, or rather the night, haha reading the paper but not about what’s happening in the outside world, instead what’s cooking up in the kitchen!
Just like we mentioned, Tapa is the ultimate breakfast meal that almost every Filipino enjoys. So, did we enjoy this dish? Of course we definitely did, The plating itself was so vibrant and really appetizing. The rice was placed inside a glass, really artsy. The egg just oozes with deliciousness, the best combination with the tapa. The price is a little steep though, but then the dish was full of flavor and was delicious to the last bite.
We also ordered their Cranberry Piglets. Not a breakfast meal but still another delicious dish and very well plated and it’s already good for sharing.
Then just in-time! Sambang Gabi has started ( a Filipino tradition of going to mass for 9 straight days, early in the morning until Christmas day 🙂 )and the classic Puto Bumbong has been part of the yearly tradition. Puto Bumbong is actually sticky rice, purple in color, though not sure where the color was derived. Then it’s smothered with margarine, brown sugar and shredded coconut wrapped in banana leaves. Something absolutely worth trying.
The Breakfast Club had its own version; Puto Bumbong PANCAKES! At first we couldn’t imagine how it would turn out or even taste like. When it was served to us it just looks weird but scrumptious hahaha. The pancake had the sticky rice mixed in it and on top is the brown sugar with melted cheese (who would have thought!). It also had coconut whipped cream (again! who would have thought haha) and a piece of strawberry to give it the Christmas vibe (I think).
They also have S’mores in a Jar, though we were too stuffed to try another dessert, lets reserve that for another day. 🙂
