TIPS: How to Place Order from Elars Lechon in Quezon Avenue

One week ago, Carmina had pointed to Mom Violy there is a place to order her lechon. Mom Violy said, let's go there one day. Carmina was able to bring Mom Violy to  Elars Lechon . The branch we went too was in Quezon Avenue which is close by. First step is to enter in their office facility to place your order.  The person inside will ask what you would like to order. Here is their price list: What they offer for Christmas in case you're interested in it. It is very easy to place your order those who are just walking in out of curiosity. Second Step: Go outside and hand in your order at the counter where you can see the lechon in front of you being chopped up on based on the weight you've made. The lechon will be placed in a box along with the lechon sauce inside an eco-bag. Mom Violy is very happy that she was able to buy her favorite Elars Lechon. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for lechon sold at Elars Lechon. Subscribe & follow @ Carmina Lifestyle  a plac

Gyudon and Steak Teppan from Soru Izakaya

From an expensive Japanese restaurant we didn't expect the food to arrive in a small plastic container we've been ordering through different restaurant but never encounter a small portion of food. For someone who can eat a normal meal this won't be enough for one person they will need to add additional orders. When you're in a budget this will be over your own expenses when you see the food compared to other Japanese Restaurant we've eaten you can see how the portion from Soru Izakaya is too small. Gyudon PHP 325.00 ($6.50) It can be great advantages to those who are on diet or a small eater. The steak teppan the family member was expecting to have rice with the meal. Having to separate the vegetables from the meal made it look small for someone who doesn't eat vegetables. Steak Teppan PHP 475.00 ($9.50) The person who was working during that time I had placed my order had called me up letting me know they cannot avoid not adding the vegetables while everything

Minestrone Soup, Grilled Shrimp Cobb Salad, and Banaba Iced Tea from Gourmet Farms Philippines

  Carmina has place herself to eat only soup and salad for her meals each day. Having to gain those extra pounds you need to start reconsidering how you look and your own figure. Not because someone is telling you that you look different that your cheeks are starting to look puffy that runs on my dad's side of the family. I use to tease my dad when I see his face has become bigger. To me it remind me of a chipmunk my step mom would tease me why I call him that I said look at his face. I want to stay away from someone to call me a chipmunk might as well hide out and start going on a diet. Good thing we have to wear mask no one see our face only us. Still not a good excuse anyway I found my minestrone soup is PHP 190.00 ($3.80) at Gourmet Farms in Grab application where I always order my food being delivered to my home.

Thai Avocado and Thai Mango Classic from Thai Mango

Carmina's mom called up her daughter at 10 o'clock in the morning asking if she can buy her something cold to drink since it has very humid in the Philippines. It is our rainy season and it rains only in the afternoon or evening making it humid in the morning and the rest of the day. Carmina remembered that her mom love eating avocado and mango decided to let her mom try something new for a change.

Due it was only 10 o'clock Carmina wasn't sure which place would be open that would serve dessert and not having enough time having a friend of my mom picking it up for her. Carmina decided to purchase it through Grab Food and have it delivered at her home by ordering it at Thai Mango. A place I've already tried their pad Thai but never consider trying their shake.
