Omg, this sandwich was AMAZING! It had everything that I love, and it was overflowing with flavor. I could eat this every day. I’d probably die of a heart attack, but at least I’d die happy. Hehe. 🙂

Patatas bravas – Cozina

Patatas bravas - Cozina
Fried potato cubes with Barcelona’s Best Selling Sauce. 350 PHP
Cozina, Boracay PHILIPPINES

Meh, these patatas bravas weren’t that good. I’ve had better versions at even cheaper restaurants, and there weren’t very many in that little bowl. I’m not sure what they mean by “Barcelona’s Best Selling Sauce”, but I’m sure it’s just a spicy tomato/red pepper sauce and aioli.

Chicken croquettes – Cozina

Chicken croquettes - Cozina
Potato croquettes filled with chicken, topped with chopped chicken and aioli. 330 PHP
Cozina, Boracay PHILIPPINES

Mmm. these little morsels were really tasty, but everything at this restaurant seemed a tad overpriced which kinda took away from the enjoyment. The croquettes were warm and fluffy and had a great flavor. Noms!

Waiter call-pad - Cozina
Waiter call-pad. I love these things. They’re super helpful especially when you’re dining on the beach and the server has to walk to and from the restaurant.

Tavern burger – Stock in Trade

Tavern burger - Stock in Trade
Angus beef, aged Grafton cheddar, two fried eggs, pickles, caramelized onions, aioli, toasted Acme bun and fries. $13
Stock in Trade, San Francisco CA

This burger had a lot of flavor but it was super cold and lifeless! It was definitely a service mistake and I’m kinda surprised they served it. Damn, I would have microwaved it myself to get a bit of warmth on the plate!

Mimosas. This was one of the most bland mimosas I’ve ever tasted. Ew!

Grilled steak and egg sandwich – Stock in Trade

Grilled steak and egg sandwich - Stock in Trade
Grilled hanger steak, two fried eggs, pickled red onion, garlic aioli, wild arugula, chimichurri, toasted pain de mie, crispy skinny fries, and fruit. $13
Stock in Trade, San Francisco CA

This burger had a lot of great flavors, but it was super cold – EW! I think the server must have forgotten it on the counter for a long time before bringing it out. I was surprised that the skinny French fries stayed crispy and delicious though. I can only imagine how much better they would have been served warm. Kind lame, Stock in Trade!
