I’m very pleased with the 2 older kids’ schedule in school this sem. Yes, they get home later than usual, but it also means they don’t have to wake up so early in the mornings. So that’s more sleeping hours, hooray! Plus Ate has 2 free days every weekday, so I’m very very happy indeed. <3 I get to spend so much more time with my gurl besties woohoo!
Since my Lovey has taken on the clean-living path of her Ate, the 2 girls have been ganging up on me, hankering me to eat healthy. So I gave in to their demands -just for a day.. er, a moment.
Until the end of the month only, BLE Real Greek Food makes a guest appearance at Century City Mall’s Hole in the Wall. For greek-food-loving non-southerners, this is a real treat!
Healthy Greek yogurt shakes 150 php in plain, strawberry, and mango.
Greek Salad 230 php. Tomato, onion, cucumber, capers, olives, feta cheese drizzled with evoo & oregano dressing. Very clean to the taste, sweet & tangy combo. Loved the tomatoes.
My Mixed Grill Platter 500 php (good for 2). Wagyu beef cubes, kebab and lamb skewers with pita.
Ate’sRegular Souvlaki 150 php. Greek pita wrap with choice of meat, tzatziki and salad. Additional toppings: Hummus, Babaganush, Tzatziki, Skordalia, Fries, Tomato, Parsley – Add 30 php.
And my Lovey’s Lamb Chops 500 php. Marinated lamb chops served with pilaf or French fries.
You can’t get more authentic than having a real greek chef! ;) He passed by our table & asked how the food was. Of course we gave him 6 thumbs up! Any more than that we’d need another appendage, lol.
He recommended some desserts for the real greek experience. Who can say no to that right? (top) Loukoumades 120 php. Deep fried dumblings -crunchy outside & chewy inside, topped with honey & cinnamon. And (bottom) of course Baklava 150 php. Layers of 50 hand-flattened fyllo pastries & pistachio soaked in special syrup. Yum! <3
Our friend STEVE MAGDARAOG happened to be manning his new baby, Serious Dough Pizza Company, so naturally we also had to drop by & taste some of his chewy pizza creations. And he most certainly did not disappoint! :)
Serious Dough Pizza Company is by Il Ponticello, so you’re guaranteed that chewy pizza freshness in every bite!

This Squash Pizza 490 php is THE BOMB. Do NOT -I repeat DO NOT leave Hole in the Wall without getting your stash of this love or you’re definitely missing out on something big, I tell ya. And don’t forget to eat the squash flowers too. It’s all kinds of dee-licious! <3
We brought home this Vegetarian Pizza 550 php for the lolas of manila, teehee. They seemed to enjoy the dough-y goodness.
and because we simply couldn’t resist, say hello to this lovely Nutella Bleu Smores Pizza dessert 530 php. At first I thought it was kinda weird. Nutella & Belu cheese together? But amazingly, it works!
Of course, we would NEVER go home without our favorite sweet endings, even though we’re too stuffed for anything else, there is always, ALWAYS room for cookies! <3 Cookies, cookies, cookies after all, starts with C!

Lookin’ forward to more food trips with my baby girls. So I guess my new year’s resolution is fast going out the window, just like always! :P At least I’m consistent, you gotta give me an “A” for that! ;)
