Cheeseburger – Firewood Cafe

Cheeseburger - Firewood Cafe
Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, served with French fries. $10.50
Firewood Cafe, San Francisco International Airport(SFO)

As airport food goes, Firewood Cafe is solid. It’s a good value and the food is actually pretty good. This burger was moist and plenty big. I just wish they would toast the buns. The fries were delicious though!

Craft cider and beer – The Noble Fir

Habanero Cider - The Noble Fir
Habanero Cider, Finnriver Cidery, Chimacum, WA. $8
The Noble Fir, Seattle WA

Mmm, both these glass were really tasty! The habanero cider had just the right amount of habanero flavor without getting too hot and making it unpleasant to drink. And the Imperial Red with chocolate was bold and delicious.

After dinner drinks – Pat’s Creek Bar

Margarita - Pat's Creek Bar
Margarita. Happy hour 90 PHP

Happy hours can last for quite a while in Boracay. This one at Pat’s was form 4-8, but it’s often difficult to know whether you’re actually getting a deal since the prices are inflated from the beginning and they always seem to pour weakly during happy hour anyway. When in doubt, just stick with beer. :)

Entertainment at Pat's Creek Bar
Entertainment at Pat’s Creek Bar. The bands that played at Pat’s were actually really good. I think the musicians on the island just kinda rotate between all the restaurants and bars though.

Mmm, I love getting served poolside. You don’t have to get up or expend and energy, AHHHH! The East Wing pool had menus from Chistina’s that you could order from so we got an afternoon snack to tide us over before dinner. This is why I have to work out every day, lol! (When I’m not on vacation.)

Sisters Cafe, Ho Chi Minh City VIETNAM

We were very good, and this was the only hamburger we had during our entire Ho Chi Minh trip and we even waited til the final day. Yay! It was decent, but they could’ve melted the cheese a bit. The fries were pretty good though.

Samalamig and San Mig beer – Villa Escudero

Samalamig - Villa Escudero
Brown sugar flavored beverage with gulaman (gelatin).
Villa Escudero, San Pablo City PHILIPPINES

They serve this “welcome” drink when you first arrive at the plantation. It tasted ok, but I didn’t really like it so I just ended up fishing out the gelatin pieces from the bottom.

San Miguel light beer - Villa Escudero
San Miguel light beer. I love how they individually wrap the napkins around each bottle for service so it doesn’t fall off!
