Oliva Bistro Cafe

Oliva Bistro Cafe along Visayas Ave., QC is a simple restaurant that serves Italian and Mediterranean dishes. It would be our second time to visit this resto meaning we were satisfied during our first visit.  We ordered roti with curry dip, mozarella sticks, chicken kebab with pita bread and humus & yogurt dips, pomodoro and chicken carbonara pasta and baked salmon pesto with buttered rice and parsley. Price ranges from P150 to P400. Our rating of the resto:

  • Food Taste (3.5/5) - The chef may be conservative in adding salt, but the taste is great especially if you add a little salt and hot sauce in some dishes.
  • Price (4/5). Except for the salmon which cost P400, a little pricey, the pasta and the other dishes were reasonably priced and their serving was adequate.
  • Place (4/5). The place is cool and clean
  • Service (4/5). The waiters are not very attentive but the service is quick if  you have a request.

Sushi Moshi at Wilcon City Center, Visayas Ave., QC

Wilcon City Center along Visayas Ave., QC is a convenient place to visit. It has a very spacious parking area. It is also a one-stop shop - there is an appliance center, supermarket, Wilcon hardware, barber shop, sports bar and drug store. We have tried the restaurants - Inengs, Siyudad by Barrio Fiesta,  Pancake House, Giligan's . Recently we discovered  Sushi Moshi, a small eatery that serves reasonably priced and good tasting Japanese dishes. We ordered seafood ramen, spicy tantan ramen, kara-age, seafood tepanyaki, chahan and sushi. We were satisfied with the serving and taste except for the sushi where the rice was not perfect but so so. Price range: P100 - P300. If I have a reason to visit Wilcon Center Mall, aside from purchasing hardware, that is to eat TanTan ramen at Sushi Moshi.

Silly Boy Hot Sauce

Image may contain: drink

Silly Boy Hot Sauce is a product from Cebu. If you want to add spiciness in your food like pizza, siomai, noddles or in any dish, a small drop of Silly Boy Hot Sauce will do the trick. It's like magic. What's interesting with this produce is that the hot sauce comes in various flavors: Original, Spicy Hot, Buffalo Style, Garlic and Dried Mango. And the packaging is unique. It is inside a 50 ml plastic bottle with a clip. It is supposed to be  clipped on your "baon" bag, so that you will not miss spicy food. Price ranges from P100 to P150 (depends on the flavor). It is a good souvenir from Cebu.
