Melo’s Steakhouse

During our last wedding anniversary, we were supposed to go out of town and I took a leave. But, due to our moving into our new place my husband decided to treat me for a bit poshier impromptu lunch outside. He decided to have lunch at Melo’s in Burgos Circle, BGC. I think the last time I tried Melo’s was ages ago. So I thought it was a good time to try their food again. We ordered the, Gambas, Rich Pumpkin Soup, and  Wagyu and Prawns (Surf and Turf). Plus, I ordered an additional mashed potato haha!


Overall, I can say that Melo’s still has it. Although I find it pricey being kuripot that I am, the taste and is just magical for your mouth and tastebuds. The moist and softness of the food goes down until the pieces of carrots and potatoes as sidings! I was super full that I was not able to finish my mashed potato. Or it must be the free appetizer soft rolls they serve prior to our main meal hehe. I had a “few” of their soft rolls 😛 We got a free VIP card too so we can dine at a discounted rate next time.

Come Onboard!

My office team decided to chill on a Friday night and go to the nearby Circuit Makati to try the board game and gastronomic place Onboard Game and Gastro Pub

Nacho Hai while Cards Against Humanity

Located at the second floor of the Circuit Lane, Circuit Makati, Olympia, Makati City. We were welcomed by the courteous receptionists and food servers. It did not take long before we requested one of the Game Masters to teach us to play “Card Against Humanity”. According to Wikipedia, Cards Against Humanity is a party game in which players complete fill-in-the-blank statements using typically offensive, risqué or politically incorrect words or phrases printed on playing cards. So, while munching on the first appetizer served, Nacho Hai, we super got in to the game was energized enough to be competitive with each other to give our “wittiest” answers. I guess we had fun since we played this game for an hour! 😛


Ferrero Nutella Landslide

My colleague and I ordered for Ferrero Nutella Landslide. When it was served,  oh boy, it was huge! It took a long time for the milkshake to be fully consumed.  Good thing, we ordered it for sharing. We also played a game called Smart Ass. According to, “Smart Ass the board game is the ultimate fun trivia game for 2 to 12 players, where everybody plays every turn, the game doesn’t labor on for hours, and even if you are a ‘Dumb Ass’, you can win! Smart Ass is an all play game. With every question asked, every player can yell out the answer at any time and as soon as they think they know the answer.” Playing this game took us longer than the first one. Haha! We were all determined to finish the game. Other food we tried are Pigs in a Platter and BBQ Sticky Fingers.


Overall, the food we ordered is delicious! I was really picky and a bit dizzy that day, but the Nacho Hai really perked me up! Lol. The price is a bit pricey. But, I think it is worth it for some family and friends bonding.
