Buckaroos Grilled Pizzas and Burger - Pasig City

Address:  Unit 2B1 2/F, 8101 Pearl Plaza, Pearl Drive, Ortigas Center

Pasig City, Metro Manila

Pearl Plaza has a lot of interesting restaurants. There's a branch of SANGO the japanese burger, A japanese restaurant that we still have to try. A korean chicken place etc etc
We have been reading about this place ever since it opened in he middle part of the year. They have an interesting concept. Grilled Pizzas!!!

So, we decided to give it a try.
The place is quite small. Fitting only bout 20 people.. Service was fast and efficient.

Four cheese and garic pizza
Elle: Crust was thin and crunchy.  Every bite oozes with cheese and the taste and scent of garlic!  The cheese makes the pizza very creamy!  It’s also a bit spicy/peppery on its own. Fantastic!

Cody:  At first, i didnt like the way it looked. But it smelled wonderful.  I inspect the bottom to see if it was really grilled and it is!!.  It was wonderfully garlicky and cheesy.  and cheap at P95 for an 8inch pizza

We are looking forward to try the other stuff offered at this joint

Dolce premiun italian gelato - SM Mall of Asia

Walking lazily in the huge SM Mall of Asia  complex just after having dinner, we chance upon this booth on the ground floor of the mall. Who doesnt love ice cream? right??

Cody: I love the size of the scoops,  it lets you get to taste more flavours in a single order. Not as creamy as the gelato of Amici of Angelati.

Elle: We sampled a bit of everything.  The gelato was not as creamy as I would have liked but it was full of flavor.

Nama Sakana - Conneticut St Greenhills

We love trying out new restaurants and this one in Greenhills has been on our list for quite sometime now. Good thing we were given the chance to try it... well, the story here was, we were suppose to try Konbini, but they were too full, so we ended up eating here.

House Maki

Cody: this is one big maki, with all the fresh seafood inside the roll. I love how they wrapped it aside from nori, with thinly sliced daikon radish, The sushi rice was 

cooked right. The blendings of the seafood was good as well.

Elle: a gigantic roll of fresh fishes, kani, avocado, rice, nori and radish. It’s a bit bland to stand on its own an the radish didn’t  do anything to the dish, it was also too big. it was nice to look.

River Shrimp Tempura w 3 Sauces

Cody: I really don’t know what river shrimps look like. The dish really was just prawns chopped into chunks battered and fried tempura style. The sauces made it different. I intermix the sauces and it was good, I love the heat that the jalapeno sauce gave.

Elle: tiny shrimp pieces cooked tempura style., the green were slightly wilted, the sauces were light and tastes great., which complimented the shrimp, a light fried dish.

Seafood Ramen

Cody: This was just an okay dish, lots of seafood, except for the small prawn that was only one. The ramen was big enough to be shared by 2 persons.

Elle: delightfully tasty with not to salty broth, ramen was chewy in the perfect way, had lots of “laman”, very very filling


The in house chef is said to be trained by the Famed NOBU, which is one of the pioneer of Neo-japanese cuisine..  We love new ways of sushi like the ones of Omakase and Sushi California. But the bottomline here is still great ingredients which this place has. Try it. They have a promo till August 15, wherein Nama Sakana card holders will get 50 percent discount on weekdays and 25 percent discount on weekends. 
Did we mention that service here was excellent:)
