Carmina's Review on Second Branch of Sundays Cafe and Restaurant in Maginhawa, Quezon City

We have friends who love to eat out and have no clue where there are places to dine.  No problem with based on my experience we can refer them to places that are reasonable prices. Carmina had tried Sundays Cafe in the branch located in Marikina. I was informed by the server they will be opening their second location sometime this year. Few days ago, Mom Violy, Carmina and some friends came with us to see the new branch of Sundays Cafe and Restaurant in Maginhawa, Quezon City.

Sinangag Garlic Fried Rice Recipe

Every night after the end of the day we sometimes have left over rice from the meal from our dinner and the best way to eat it the next day is cooked it as sinangag which is garlic fried rice.  Most people in the Philippines love to eat rice in every meal and there is a point in our life we are tired of eating plain white rice so in order to add more flavor to our rice we would add something to it. When you have your typical breakfast served in the Philippines for example dried fried fish, tocino, longanisa people love to eat garlic rice to complete their meal along with sunny side up egg and sliced tomato. Our meal doesn't get complete if we don't have all these ingredients for our breakfast this is the reason why in the Philippines we are known to be a rice eater no rice to some people is not a complete meal for them. Sinangag Garlic Fried Rice Recipe Ingredients: Left over rice cooked rice Garlic (minced) or garlic powdered Cooking oil Salt Cooking Instructions: In a pot add

My mom than again called me up asking what happened to the picture that had reached 81 likes I had informed her I had deleted it because one of my friend claimed it didn't look like me.
