I finally got the chance to eat what I’ve been craving the past week or so – tocilog (tocino, sinangag, itlog)! I was browsing through Max’s online menu yesterday, and saw that they offered all-day breakfast meals which of course, included my favorite tocino rice meal. If you’re wondering why I was browsing Max’s online menu, let’s just say that it’s my way of virtually going on a food trip, without actually getting myself bloated with all those calories and cholesterol.
Here’s what we had for lunch… or our post-Valentine’s date?—
My husband’s Fiesta Plate Meal – 1/4 Max’s fried chicken, steamed rice, fresh lumpiang ubod, and a cute heart-shaped caramel bar.
Lumpiang Shanghai – loved this, the lumpia wrapper was thin and crunchy – you can enjoy the meaty goodness with every single bite. The photos I took don’t do justice to these bite-sized goodies.
And here comes… my Tocilog! I opted for the garlic rice (you can have the rice plain, or cooked with garlic/the sinangag style), and I was impressed with the generous tocino serving. The meat was tasty, very tender, and juicy. I think I was smiling while savoring every spoonful of the tocilog.I ate only one of the sunny-side up eggs, though.
After satisfying my tocilog craving, we set out to satisfy my curiosity about the movie, Unofficially Yours. Sobrang sulit ang bayad sa sinehan! I will not go into detail about what made the movie such an entertaining one (yeheyy for my hubby, he didn’t doze off even once during the entire film!)… but I will say that the movie:
- made me laugh out loud (lots of times) in the most wa-poise ways possible;
- made me cry and ask for my husband’s handkerchief, so I can wipe away my tears;
- effortlessly made me feel the “kilig” – and not just because of John Lloyd Cruz; and
- succeeded in my developing a girl crush on Angel Locsin LOL.
Good food, cravings satisfied, great company, and a movie about the power of trusting someone to love you the way you deserve to be loved – I’d say, what a great way to start the weekend!
