There are times when you have a hankering for Pinoy street food but thing is, most foodie haunts and food parks are only open during Fridays to Sundays. Well, Fishermall’s Chinese Banchetto (which started out as a Chinese New Year Banchetto, hence the name) is open daily from 4:00pm to 10:00pm. They have a wide array of Pinoy street food staples like kwek kwek, isaw (and other for grill/barbecue pork & chicken parts), chicharong bulaklak, calamares, crablets, lumpia, siomai even crispy shrimps and tawilis.
There’s also a pizza & pasta stall wherein for just P100.oo you can avail of a piece of deep dish pizza, pasta and cold drink of your choice! Talk about budget carbo-loading ei!
What I really like about the place is that the the tables and chairs are sturdy and not the usual plastic type which is woobly; its situated beside the mall which covers heat from the sun; they have live music after 6:00pm; the stall owners cook & deliver the food to your table; plus the cleanup is fast so there are no smelly and sticky tables.
Its one of those days wherein after a quick shower you don’t want to dress up because you know you’ll just be going to one quick appointment. This was one of those days when a loose shirt, comfy shorts and slippers is okay – its just a dermatologist appointment. Any activity other than that, should (also) be relaxing like a massage, comedy movie or good meal.
Anyway, finished early from a dermatologist checkup and treatment, Ate Fely and I decided to try out Sugar Ray’s at Fisher Mall.
I think at daytime this sports bar is a good chill out place to grab a bite and watch a few telecast games or cable TV shows.
Or you can grab a bottle of beer and wait out the traffic at their long bar while watching TV.
Weird to some but this place for me is a good ‘day spot’ to do some work online. I mean really, they should serve good coffee and some pastries also for the ‘day’ patrons.
For ‘Game of Thrones’ fans, you can watch it at Sugar Ray’s and play a drinking game too! Its a trivia game plus you get to drink, fun isn’t it?!
We tried their cheeseburgers with a side of french fries with soda since it was still the afternoon. But they also serve steaks and different types of local and imported beer.
Who remembers these old-fashioned games?! Well I do! Nothing beats the ‘feels’ of playing in an arcade than on a tablet!
Fond of console games or you need to have a quick meeting and you don’t know where to leave your kids? Let your kids play here while you talk business and sip beer next door!
Galaga and Donkey Kong should be rebooted and downloadable on tablets, just saying!
Okay, ’90s kids probably don’t know the movie ‘Big’ starring Tom Hanks but Zoltar here is still a crowd favorite with his booming voice and fortune telling skills!
After watching a cable cooking show, a good burger meal and after getting my ‘fortune’ from Zoltar we happily went home!
