BRGR Project + PINO + Birthday Eve

There's really nothing like bonding with friends over good food, laughter and stories! Last December 6, my blogger sweethearts and I went to Makati to visit the newest branches of BRGR Project and PINO Restaurant/Bar. Go through the photos and captions below to know what else happened during our fun dinner and my birthday salubong! :)

First stop: The BRGR Project

One of my favorite go-to places whenever I feel like eating my heart out! This place never fails. I posted about BRGR Project before, twice actually (click/click), and I'll be so much willing to blog about them again!

We didn't eat here, though, because we had to proceed to PINO. Namiss ko tuloy mag-customize ng burgers! Next time, next time!

Pax with Ruben Lanot (part owner of Pino, Pipino and BRGR Project)

Hello girls!! Time to go to PINO!

Pino is another restaurant that's very dear to me. Aside from their delicious meals, sa PINO Kitchen Studio (along Malingap, QC) rin kami nag-relief operation for the victims of a killer monsoon last August. So there pa lang, you'll know that the people behind this restaurant have good hearts. ♥

Pipino is Pino Restobar's vegetarian counterpart!

And like what Pax mentioned in her post, "it's not Pino if there's no doodle wall"! :) Ruben told us that the characters in that doodle wall represent the owners/holders of Pino. Cute!!

My lovely dates ♥

There were food bloggers at PINO that night, too! They were equipped with big cameras, reflectors, and other essential gears for food photography. Ang galing nila!

PINO Flavored Beers (7 variants)
They were all yummy!! :) My favorites are honeymansi and lychee!

Tasteful cupcakes

Giant Margarita

Chips and vegetarian bagoong

And for dinner, we had these heavenly meals...

Coffee Crusted Beef Belly

Crispy Tenderloin Tapsilog

Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Kare-kareng Bagnet (their bestseller) Araw-araw ko yata kine-crave 'to!! Grabe sarap!!

Watermelon Steak, a vegetarian meal personally made and prepared by Chef Ed for Ana! Aww! :">

Bakit parang naaamoy ko all these meals while typing? OMG. Hahahaha!

Pino Choco Turon

Mango Sansrival

Forgot the name of this dessert :'( Someone enlighten me, please?

Chocolate Tablea Cheesecake

While we were munching on all these, guess who dined next to our table!! :) Anne Curtis and Erwann Heusaff! ♥ Anne tweeted about PINO that night, too, so you can really trust that all the meals in this restaurant are delectable and scrumptious!

We didn't notice that it was almost midnight, birthday ko na!! :) Thank you for the birthday toast!! It was fun celebrating my birthday eve with you guys! I love youuu!! ♥
