Dragon Foodie Review: Gringo, Chicken, Ribs & Friends , SM The Block

Gringo Chicken Ribs Friends

Hello Sweeties!

I celebrated my 46th Birthday with lunch alone at SM The Block Ground Floor.  Gringo Chicken Ribs Friends was at its soft opening that day.

The place is a bit small, but it reminds me of a backyard barbecue but indoors. lol. The staff were attentive, knowledgable and when asked would recommend dishes.

Since I was alone, I decided to try their chicken.  I wanted something savory and spicy.

Hello Sweeties!

The beasties and I just got back from Fullybooked Bonifacio Global City for our yearly tradition and bonding for Free Comic Book Day  #FCBD2016. Since it is simpler to have our Brunch on the way home we decided to have it at our favorite stop over Eastwood. As per usual, we wanted to eat somewhere new, I spotted Café Ñ (Enye) a few days ago while walking about Eastwood and decided to try it out.

Café Enye (Ñ) is totted as a Spanish Filipino restaurant at serves classic Spanish dishes with a twist. It is really very inconspicuous, located on the side where BPI bank is. If you don't look close enough, you can mistake it for a small coffee shop, but in reality it is very spacious.
