More than a month ago, I think a couple of weeks after Yuri’s birthday, I met up with my girlfriends, Hazel and George, to watch the movie, Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis.
Well, it was supposed to be Hele. Until a series of unfortunate events (conflicting schedules, conflicting mall locations, et cetera) led us to cancel Hele. Instead, we ended up watching Batman Vs. Superman. Wut. It was waaay waaay below Hele standard, but hey, at least we were entertained for almost 3 hours.
Because Hazel and I were there at 11 and the movie didn’t start until 2:30, we started to eat an early lunch. We looked for a restaurant that none of us have ever tried before, thus Dong Juan.
Dong Juan’s interior themes are generally wood and earth.
I particularly loved our seats:
I wasn’t able to take pictures of the menu (mum-nesiac) but here are what we ordered:
Both the burger steak and the pork chop steak were priced at — get this — just P150! I was actually expecting a small serving, so imagine my surprise when our orders came out and the servings were actually big! It tasted good, too. Not bad for P150, not bad at all!
And for dessert, we had:
Like the burger and pork chop steaks, the desserts were huge. I don’t remember the exact prices but I think these were priced at around P199 each? I could be wrong because I didn’t photograph the menu lol, but it’s around that price range.
Hazel’s ice cream sandwich was a pleasant surprise because the cookies were not only big but also thick. The dollop of ice cream was generous as well. In fact, she had a “fun” time eating it hahaha.
Meanwhile, the S’Mores mugcake was just diviiiine. Anyone with a sweet tooth will surely appreciate the simple but heavenly dessert. The cake was gooey and there was a lot of chocolate. The plain ice cream went with it perfectly.
George came an hour later with hubby and ordered the same dishes hahaha. But her iced tea caught our attention because it came in the cutest glass bottle:
