Dinner at Casa Verde


My family and I went to Case Verde at U.P. Town Center for dinner. We were seated and we searched the menu. I’m a burger kind of guy so I looked at the burgers.

My mom ordered Brian’s Ribs “half rack ribs”. It costs for P250 and it’s good for 1 – 2 people. The ribs came in 10 minutes later and it tastes a bit dry and it lacks sauce.

On the menu, I saw a 1 kilo burger called the Mighty Ton and a 500g “9” burger called the Big Bang. It costs  P438 and it’s good for 3 – 4 people. I asked my little brother if he wanted to split the burger with me and he said yes.

The Big Bang came in 10 minutes after the ribs and it’s a GIANT!

We cut it in quarters and we both got our first part. The burger is “9” wide and about “4” tall. I couldn’t imagine how big the 1 kilo burger would look . The burger has lettuce, tomato and cheese. There’s nothing new but the sauce. A quarter of that burger is as big as one order of a Jack Daniel’s burger from Friday’s. I was able to gobble up half the burger and my brother ate like 3/8 of the burger. It filled me up really fast because of the thick bread.

The Red Onion

We were looking for a place to eat at U.P. Town Center. U.P. Town Center is a cool new dining place at Katipunan. We walked around and saw The Red Onion. It caught our attention because they have an “all you can eat noodles” promo.

They have rice toppings, noodles, appetizers, meals and drinks. I ordered the 39 Spices Beef Noodles . You can request for thin or thick noodles. They have the original and the light, medium, and high spice levels. I chose the medium level assuming it’s just right for my taste and I requested for thick noodles. The serving time was 15 minutes. While I was waiting, I watched the chef cook the noodles from scratch. He  carried a block of noodles, which he shred and dumped into hot water.

The food finally came and I started eating. I took a sip and a tear slid down my cheek as my mouth was on fire. It was spicier than I expected it to be. The beef is really soft and the vegetables too. I asked for another serving of noodles and this time I asked for thin noodles. The soup is really spicy and it got me wondering, how spicy the high spice noodles could possibly be.

This was the only Taiwanese restaurant I’ve ever been in. It was a whole new experience for me.

The 39 Spice Beef Noodle costs for P228.  The price is worth it.

That’s it for today everyone. Thank you for reading!
