Excuses to Pig Out

One Saturday afternoon, Ate and I dragged Mama to Marquee Mall to have snacks. Good thing Papa allowed us to go even if it was scorching hot outside. After shopping for A Bonne items we headed to Xtremely Xpresso.

Our hungry eyes and empty stomachs feasted on the menu.

Ate and I ordered Xtreme Frappes. The one on the left is Baby Joe. The one on the right is Eskimocha. Each is P100 for the grande size. I requested to have the drinks in take-out cups because I thought we would not be able to finish them. There is an additional P10 fee for each cup.


Ate insisted we order Tex-Mex Style Nachos (P220). It's her favorite. I didn't expect the serving to be this huge!


Look at the generous piles of ground beef, onions, capers, jalapeño peppers, salsa and cheese. It was the first time I tried this in Xtremely Xpresso and I can say this is really a must-try. It is so tasty and filling. It is good for sharing with four to six persons. We were not able to finish it so we just took the half home.


I ordered my favorite pasta, Spaghetti Pomodoro (P160). I love the rich sauce which is simply made from tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and fresh basil.


The tender, succulent and flavorful tomatoes make me always want this pasta dish. It is simple; no shrimp or chicken chunks but is complete and very sumptuous.


I let Mama and Ate taste the Chicken Terriyaki Sandwich (P150).  Mama sliced it into three but Ate didn't eat her part so we also took the slice home.



Ate ordered Garlic & Cheese Quesadilla (P140) last minute. Although I was already full I still ate two pieces. I couldn't resist the creamy garlic dip. Yummy!


We just committed gluttony. Haha! What we ordered was too much for the three of us but we couldn't help ordering our favorites. Besides, the snack was our treat for Mama. Ate and I agreed to split the bill. Mama assured us she will pay the next time we go out. Ate and I winked at each other and instantly knew we should have it at TGIF. =D
