J.CO Donuts & Coffee – Libis

Eversince this chain came to the Philippines, you can consistenytly see long lines of patrons waiting to get that piece of sweetness. And now the hype has died down, still the one thing this donut has that’s not found with other similar chains is the texture and balanced sweetness of the donuts. Though when the donut is not consumed hours after buying, the quality is no longer the same. So better consume it same day.

Bestseller for me is Al Capone. If I buy 1 dozen, half of it will be Al Capone. The rest will be for trying.

They have also different variants of coffee – hot or iced and can be a bit overwhelming to make the right choice. Ambiance is irresistible as they have cozy chairs to lounge on.

By the way, you don’t have to worry no more about long queues. They can serve your donuts immediately.

Korean J Grill – Tomas Morato

Korean Restaurants are a hit nowadays. With the booming K-pop culture in the Philippines now, it’s not a new thing that we become interested not only with Koreanovelas and Korean novelty items but also the Food this country can influence.

There was one restaurant in mind when we set out our hunt in QC area. Unfortunately, we were 16th in line! No way were gonna wait that long. So we decided to just go for the next available restaurant nearby. Then we came across this one as we are lucky enough to get the last parking spot available.

We were 2nd in line. That’s tolerable. While waiting for our table, we are already checking out the menu and decided on the Herb Samgyupsal and their marinated chicken.

The side dishes are unlimited as what other K restos are. Except of course if it’s an all-out Korean buffet.

This is how our meals looks like right on the grill.

We also ordered the Ramyun (so cheap) ’cause we thought that the samgyupsal would not be enough


Our ambiance looks like this.

Katzikat Recommends: I already went back to this restaurant twice. The second time still did not disappoint. Lettuce is so fresh and crunchy!!!!

Fat Daddy’s SmokeHouse

I first tried Fat Daddy’s in their branch in BGC. Unfortunately, the place is already closed and it’s a sad day for Burgos Circle restaurant lovers. So when we saw a branch in UP Town Center, we immediately went for it. We waited a bit before we were given a table since the place is jam-packed with diners that night.

We ordered this yummy appetizers first. Hot Pork Poppers! It was instantly a hit! Paired with the vinegar, it sure made us hungry for more.


I ordered for the Hungry Daddy Menu – a combination of Pulled Pork and Chicken BBQ with your choice of 1 side. I opted for the Texas Dirty Rice. Yum!


My son ordered for the Cheesy Spaghetti and Meatballs. Though I have to eat the meatballs as he can’t finish them all!


Katzikat Thoughts: This restaurant never failed to impress their diners with the excellent menu and choices of sides. Which makes me wonder, why did they close their brach in BGC? Shame that we have to go all the way to QC just to be able to get their lovely BBQs.

Pound By Todd English

This review is for Pound located at Vertis North Mall.  It was saturday before Father’s Day celebration and my son just got back from his vacation. Craving for city food, backed with my B1T1 coupon from Booky, we went for this restaurant as they serve Sliders, Burgers, Pasta and Desserts only. And to note that most of the restaurants in the area are full since everyone seems to be out for Celebrating our Fathers!

We were 2nd in line and decided on what we are gonna order even before we had our tables. Please note that they only will prepare your orders once your table is confirmed though. Just browse thru the menu while you wait.

When we got the table, the inside of the restaurant seems to be small. It was all packed during the night. Tables are small, really meant for 1 person each side. It was a rainy night that night so the floor is a bit messy. And our table seems to be jiving with our movements. Just annoying.

First we were served with the sliders. Thanks Booky for the treat!

My son ordered for the Chicken Burger, which was left unfinished as it’s all just crunchy breading instead of the Chicken meat.


But their Pomodoro is a must order. Paired with their Truffle Fries!

Katzikat Thoughts: We went out of the resto with full tummy considering that those sliders are so cute but the meat is all packed. If my son would prefer to go back there, I would but if I, alone will decide, I’ll just pick another burger restaurant than them. Please lose the black and white tiles! Too old design!
