Treat your whole family and friends to hearty meals from well-loved restos
You don’t need lots of cash to spread the love on Valentine’s Day. Well-loved establishments offer fare just as special as their higher end counterparts but at much friendlier prices. You can share the day with the entire family or barkada over a pizza or some big time burgers. Because love means never having to say, “I don’t have enough money to treat you.”
Greenwich: All-time sweetheart
It’s an old favorite, made even better. As Greenwich takes new strides with its hipper interiors, its menu continues to offer time-tested pizza and pasta bestsellers, with new desserts added in to sweeten the deal. Share the special overload pizza and its more than 10 toppings with your special someone then follow it up with the creamy lasagna guaranteed to give you the carb fix that no summer fling ever can. Cap off your meal with coffee and a slice of the choco mango ganache or the choco fudge, and enjoy as you fall in love all over again.
Greenwich is at the 4/F SM Megamall Atrium. Call 633-6467.
Tia Maria’s: A toast to Mexico
A zombie (P96/glass) or a margarita (P115/glass) should sound pretty good come Friday if you’re one of the many singles unattached on a day as auspicious as Feb. 14. But the joys of singlehood can be celebrated just as well with a platter of fried foods like nachos, cheese sticks, buffalo wings and tacos with friends who know how to party. Tia Maria’s super sampler and flautaladas make for some excellent celebratory fare on Valentine’s.
Call Tia Maria’s, located at 4/F of SM Megamall Atrium, at 635-2326.
Teriyaki Boy: Bright-eyed delights
Its cheery yellow-dominated interiors are the perfect setting for a coosome twosome’s fun date, but what makes Teriyaki Boy a favorite among the foodie crowd are its Japanese dishes that have been suited to the Filipino taste buds. Select from an array of pork-, chicken-, and seafood-based main courses, then top off the meal with the healthy Tea Frappé, a smooth and creamy concoction that serves as a refreshing dessert that is neither too sweet nor too bland, but just delightfully right.
Teriyaki Boy is at 4/F SM Megamall Atrium. Call 637-0623 to 24.
Brothers Burgers: Big love
Satiate your big appetites with Brothers Burgers’ juicy flame-broiled pure beef burgers, and take advantage of the restaurant’s proffered customer carte blanche with their toppings selection to customize your big burger experience. Have a side of french fries and onion rings, as well, and take a plunge at the sweet side with the Brothers’ Shakes, with its chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavors. Undoubtedly, bigger is better when it comes to food and love.
Brothers Burgers is at 4/F SM Megamall Atrium. Call 891-1781 to 86.
