Whatever Your Secret Is

If there's one blogger who I really want to meet as of last year, that would be Jamie. I've been reading her blog even before I started blogging. I always enjoyed reading her stories kahit di ko siya kilala personally. Last Sunday, we finally scheduled to meet (together with Jamie's husband Glen, Sir Lloyd and his wife). Parang family day lang! I suggested Secret Recipe because I've been reading a lot of good reviews here so I hope walang ma-disappoint samin. Else, yari ako.

Secret Recipe

Glenn, Sir Lloyd and I ordered the award-winning Irish Lamb Stew. Loooks promising eh.


Irish Lamb Stew

I think the lamb lovers will really appreciate how tender the lamb became. But for me, it was just like a pricey beef. Nothing spectacular about this meal.


Glen (again) and Jamie ordered Pan-grilled dory with lobster sauce and grilled black pepper chicken respectively.

Glen says it's ok. Nothing follows.
*winks*

Based on her left over, i believe it tasted so so. No, she's not on a diet. She's slimmer than I am.


Grace ordered Vietnamese beef noodle soup and Im delighted to taste it.

Serving is big enough for 3. Tastes ok for me, but not to die for. Not a fan of noodles kasi. But sir Lloyd said the taste is not authentic. Oh well, cant wait to taste an authentic one in Vietnam.


Time for the best seller desserts. And it didn't disappoint us.
We chose the award winning Marble Cheesecake and the best seller Chocolate Indulgence.

Yummy! The taste could be for a best seller category, but for award winning, hhmm, I've tasted few cheesecakes which are better than these.

Maybe I just set my standards too high for this lifestyle cafe that's why Im not totally satisfied with Secret Recipe. It's enough to kill my curiosity but will not eat here again. Whatever their secrets are, we're not interested to know.

Jamie and Glen,

Nice meeting you. Glen, thanks sa photography tips. Jamie, kinakabahan ako sa araw na magmeet tayo at wala kang ubo. Baka di nako totally makasingit sa pagkwento mo. Hihi


Sir Lloyd and Grace,
Thank you again! My prayers are always with you and Gabby! Ü

RJ said...

Ako, Chyng, ayaw mong ma-meet? o",) Dadalhin kita sa kainan sa Adelaide na magpaparamdam sa 'yong kailangan mong nakawin ang secret recipe nila. Hahah!

Sa tingin ko, 'yong lamb nila ang magugustuhan ko, then kanin dapat ang partner.

Kahit authentic, kapag Vietnamese noodle soup parang hindi ko talaga gusto.

*winks*

Uy, my boyfriend and I were there with some friends last Saturday! It was also our first time there, and we actually liked the food and desserts. We had the Tom Yum pasta and chicken barbecue, and got a bit out of everyone else's dishes and cakes. The watermelon shake was really yummy. I actually want to go back.

Mga Epal said...

looks good.. looks even beter..

intindihin nyo nalang.

hanggang sa sunod na daan ulit.

Jakey Junkie said...

Nakaka-bilib talaga ang extensive knowledge mo sa urban eating adventure. I could really learn a lot from you.

Sa lulubog-lilitaw na career-kuno ko sa blogging, may mga bloggers din akong gustong makita. Nakita ko na 'yung iba. 'Yung ibang mga kasabayan ko, missing in action na din.

the donG said...

pwede ka na rin namin inominate sa best food blog next year. hehehe...

masakait nga sa mata masarap naman kainin.

lucas said...

dito sa amin paulit-ulit ang mga ulam...hehe! it would be nice to go there and eat something different. ehehe!...

(so talagang kinukunan mo muna yung food bago kumain? ahahaha!)

che said...

I agree bf, hindi ko masayado gusto food nila. Meron din ganto sa Shang eh, tried it once tapos hindi na kame bumalik. Cake is their forte so I guess pang-dessert lang sila. Recipe by Cafe Metro is far much better - Gising-gising at Crispy Tilapia! Yum! 5 beses na kame bumalik dahil dyan. :)
