kfc breakfast buffet

kfc breakfast buffet_1

Just because my breakfast routine on weekends doesn’t seem to expand here for the last couple of months now it doesn’t mean that I gave up my love affair with mornings and Sundays and breakfast, a good and sunny breakfast that is. ♥ It’s just that my weekend schedules now are quite knotty following ze husband’s erratic work plan and of course the hazy mornings ever since summer bid goodbye, say hello to rainshowers and bed weather folks.

Once a breakfast lover it’s meant to stay that way eternally, thanks to the many all-day breakfast places sprouting massively universally. Other than I still fancy breakfast food taken in the morning, it’s the law of nature I assume. 😀 So everytime I’m given the chance to date my husband on his precious day off I’d still go for a breakfast date, something to start our day early and something to make our tummy very happy.

Two Saturdays ago we gave it a go once more, the KFC’s Breakfast Buffet to be exact. It’s one of the morning buffets we don’t want to miss so to make sure we get in that Saturday, I asked the husband to make a reservation the night before. He didn’t need to pay for the advance coupon thing as advertised and yes we were still accommodated at past 8am the following day.

And what I thought was early because of the few diners I spotted on the 2nd floor of KFC Jupiter branch was a deceived. 😦 We should have gone earlier even before the 7:30am start because it was jam-packed at the 3rd level where the buffet area was served. I was a bit disappointed of the long line that welcomed us. Even a decent seat was so hard to reserve so we shared a long table with this guy who at first was feeling annoyed of the long line too. I allowed the husband to fall in line first knowing how impatient he is at times, I thought at least I have the time to observe and took photos for a while. And it gave me time to settle and strategize my supposed game plan at the buffet table soon as it’s my turn.

Okay, I wasn’t able to take photos of the spread because it’s not decent to look at anymore and some chafing dishes were almost empty (while some were really empty and waiting for refills). I had everything on my plate expect rice because I was planning to eat lightly at first but all viands call for a kind serving of rice so I had to get a bowl to fully enjoy my tocino. 😀

The buffet spread included plain rice and garlic rice, chicken tocino, chicken longganisa, chicken fillet, hash browns, pancakes and arrozcaldo, coffee and hot chocolate, orange, apple and iced tea. For its P199 price I think it’s worth your every penny. Surprisingly it passed the husband’s picky mood. By the way, for the unlimited coffee and juice, you have to add P30, not bad though.

And if you really want to make “sulit” eat a lot of those chicken fillet. 🙂

But never forget to save room for pancakes, their chocolate chip pancakes were a stand out that even our feeling annoyed tablemate had more than two plateful serving of it. And he went back three or four times to refill everything. I’m just guessing that maybe he hadn’t taken dinner the night before that’s why he wolfed down what three people can actually share. Hehehe.

Ooops sorry if this promotion comes very late for you, the KFC Breakfast Buffet ended yesterday and we missed it because someone went to work again on a Sunday. 😦 And tho a lot of netizen were requesting an extension of it, KFC never confirmed any as of now. Well, let’s hope they’d come up with a second run!

spinach and three-cheese omelet

Spinach and Three-Cheese Omelet_1

I’m all by myself again yesterday, the house was all mine as early as 6am. Tho it’s quite lonesome to be alone on Sunday I’m getting used to it besides it’s becoming the perfect moment for my trivial me-times. 🙂

The remaining cold breeze in the morning pushes my body back to bed so I got up late, it’s permissible because I’m not cooking for anyone this time and I just need to cook my own food, no pressure on that. Other than I can’t help but missed the husband’s presence, even his annoying habit and our morning convo in bed. Well, I’m not spending the day in miserly, life goes on for me.

I wanted a good breakfast, a restaurant grade or even grandeur depending on what I currently have at home. I need to load up because I’m not planning to lunch anymore other than I don’t want to starve myself either while waiting for dinner. Eggs are good for breakfast, it’s so versatile because I can create more than 101 delicious ways with it and omelets are the best tho a tasty frittata would be much wanted if only I have a good skillet at hand. Now you know what to gift me next Christmas, I want a cast iron skillet from Gourdo’s. 😛

Mornings can’t be anywhere perfect except at the comfort of your own kitchen, the smell of breakfast and the happiness it brings. Sundays remains to be my love! ♥

 

smoked golden tinapa

I’m not a fan of Pancake House even prior to that November incident. And well, for one because their food is not cheap I could easily count the number of times I’ve dined in their so many restaurants. But sometimes you get to that point that you crave for something, you want something out of the ordinary and then you saw something on IG that made you drool and then you break the rule. Hahaha.

For weeks I’ve been raving for tinapa (smoked fish), even when we went home at the parental’s house I was hoping that mother dear have some leftovers at home but there’s not a bit, she was rather busy with her galunggong experiment. So when I catch sight of PH’s new offer by chance I felt I suddenly weaken and soften (to self: forget your issue for now 🙂 ), I need to rush and get a taste of that smoked golden tinapa. ♥

But because there remains a little hesitation about dining back in Pancake House I was like diddling and doodling the whole idea, I don’t want another untoward incident, I just want to enjoy the night for Christ’s sake. That was Friday and I don’t want to mess up a fridate. But even if there are 101 reasons pulling me back then, my heart’s desire won and we gave it a go! Woohoo!

I don’t mind that at past 10pm I was eating breakfast food, I don’t mind, really. My salty-cravings taste bud was in pure bliss!

Smoked golden tinapa (milkfish), 2 cups of steamed rice, 2 eggs sunny side up, 2 sidings of mango salsa and 2 orders of iced tea P480 

For some reasons I don’t believe sometimes when it says that the deal is good for two already, in most cases you get a small amount of food (in poor quality) and sharing isn’t probable except if you eat like a bird. Other than PH’s offer was a treat of its own, I was impressed!

The milkfish was big enough to feed us and the sunny side egg was perfect! Kahit lalim na ng gabi nun kumain kami it brightens up my day! 😀

I don’t mind going back and ordering the same set, I rarely recommend and this one is an exemption, you should try it yourself because Pancake House hit the spot, winner ang Smoked Golden Tinapa because it’s bigger, heavier and better for sharing! ♥
