Manny Paquiao the Pacman had won again
The nation was ecstatic
Unified (for once) in rooting for a homeboy ...
We are like that
Coming together to watch our heroes beat the wits out of our common enemies
Beat them to a pulp if need be
We cheer whether the battle be in a boxing ring or in a political arena
Macho macho man
Hoooo haaaaa (muscle flexing)
This a time for meat ...
Time for a good manly cut of beef
Myron's Place in the swank Greenbelt 5 was a friend's recommendation
And with an outdoor patio area that allows one to dine under the wonderful tree canopy of Greenbelt 5
Our menu choices were pretty straightforward with no real surprises.
Mesclun Salad with sea scallops and raspberry vinaigrette
Baked oyster sampler (includes baked oyster with foie gras)
Duet of bacon-wrapped Angus steak and grilled prawns
And finally ...
Roast US Angus Rib-Eye Beef
Wine please ...
Friends walked in and out
A few waves , a few smiles
Beso-beso , chismis
Manila is a small town full of people whose national pastime aside from eating, is to talk
It was an evening full of chatter - much of it about the days boxing event
The food itself though was not a "knockout"
More like a split decision
I had expected more
They are in "soft opening"
I wouldn't count them out just yet
"You can never can tell"
You are just gonna' have to try them yourselves
Be the referee ...
Let me know
