Big Buddha

Published on October 31, 2010

I still have to work on a few posts from my US trip but I’ll start to squeeze in some of the more recent events before I start to forget them. :)

As soon as I went back, Boyet and I started to contact and meet some of our prospective wedding suppliers. We were scheduled to meet a photographer in Greenbelt at three in the afternoon so we already had lunch before we left. So I was so surprised when Boyet told me that he wants to eat again. He said that we haven’t had a date in three months so that convinced me even if I was still full. We just walked along Greenbelt 3 and our feet led us to Big Buddha.

Just like in Superbowl of China, each table gets to enjoy a bowl of their crispy prawn crackers. I am actually not sure if it was prawn or fish crackers because I don’t know the difference. I actually like munching these starters which is a good way to warm up my jaw before entering a chewing battle. And besides, who does not want free treats to start a meal? :)

We first got a plate of fried spring rolls. It was good but there was nothing extraordinary about it. Actually, I would have not paid PHP90 for a lumpia given that those sold in a carinderia for PHP10 can compete to the taste. But I still liked it given the fact that I ate a lot of pizzas and burgers in the US so a serving of vegetables was very welcomed.

Since we already had lunch, rice was definitely out on our table. So Boyet decided to get a bowl of wanton soup instead. Served on a triangular bowl were a number of dumplings, which I really missed because I haven’t had one (at least our version of siomai) for months. I actually enjoyed the wanton soup but it wasn’t hot enough for us. We also appreciated that they gave us additional clear soup when we asked for it.

It actually felt great to finally share another meal with my original food trip buddy. So I still savored every bite even if my tummy felt like bursting. :)
