Foodgasm episode 8: ä Veneto + Gelatissimo

Condiments. Nananana… ♫♫♫

Yesterday, Kim and I celebrated our 7th anniversary as best friends. August 17 was not really the first day that we became BFFs. Who would ever know or remember when two people became best friends, right? So, we decided to do some computations that involve our birthdays. In the end, we got August 17 to mark our anniversary. 🙂

We were supposed to eat at Little Tokyo (Makati) but the resto where we wanted to eat opens at 6PM… and it was just 3PM in our watch. 😦 The first “alternative” I thought of was to do our date in TriNoMa then just decide where to eat when we get there. Kim liked the idea so we went there right away. Since it was too early to eat dinner, we bought tickets for The Bourne Legacy. Hello Jeremy Renner! ♥ And of course, hello to my own country (MNL, Philippines) where the scenes from the latter part were shot! Can’t say that the movie was really great. For me, it was just okay.

Hello there, my shrimps! :))

After the movie, we went to ä Veneto to have our dinner. We decided to order two dishes then share these so that we would be able to taste both dishes — I ordered Oil and Garlic with Shrimps in White Sauce while Kim ordered Philadelphia Burger.

Oil and Garlic with Shrimps in White Sauce (PhP305)

I totally loved what I ordered since the aglio olio-ness (T/N: garlic and oil) was very much present. The white sauce added texture to the pasta and it did not overshadow the aglio olio-ness. 😀 There were plenty of huge shrimps as well, which was a big plus for me.

Philadelphia Burger (PhP190)

As for the Philadelphia Burger, the burger patty was grilled to perfection — not too chewy and burnt well. Along with their special dressing were mushrooms and onions. 😀 Kim and I were also happy with the fries that came along with the burger since they were not oily.

Think we were both full after that?

Well, yes, we were already full after the ä Veneto dinner. But, we were craving for gelatooooo! The solution for that? A quick visit to Gelatissimo. 😀 As usual, we had a hard time choosing what flavor to buy since there were a LOT of flavors to choose from. In the end, I bought the Forest Berry Cheesecake while Kim had Tiramisu. One scoop of gelato is worth PhP110. Quite pricey but it’s worth it!

Last night was really good… the perfect way to de-stress especially since August is hell month for universities (boo midterms!). We were also able to catch up with each other since we haven’t met for a few weeks. (Belated) happy anniversary again, propphi! >:D<

Me and Kim

Oh. My sister noticed that our dinner was actually Italian-themed. We didn’t plan that at all. Haha!
