Nakapag dine na ba kayo new normal restarant? Ako not yet hesitant pa ako.
Yup yup. KFC, Ramen Kuroda, Mitsuyado Sei-Men, Meat Depot, SM MOA Food Court, Ramen Nagi, Hawker Chan, Tim Hortons, Kaya Korean Restaurant... That's it, so far. But have some more in my list to try. Curious with Bungalow Cafe in Molito, Alabang though. Last time I was there, dapat magdine-in, kaya lang daming tao, and there's a long line. So in another day na lang.
So far OK naman, hindi crowded yung loob ng restaurant. But minsan limited dishes yung iba, follow the seating arrangement being implemented, and the acrylic/barrier in between.

There has been some suggestions about opening another thread just for the NEW NORMAL Dining. And while I think its quite unneccessary to open a new thread, I leave it to the admins and moderators to decide on that matter.
My take on the NEW NORMAL ????? Well as far as dining is concerned, Safety protocols is definitly a must. I do not need to elaborate those again because I'm sure everybody should be aware of it already. Though what I think that must be repeated over & over is that each and every one of us SHOULD RESPECT each Restaurant's Safety Protocols. (I have heard stories from waitstaff & sometimes the owners themselves of customers getting angry because they have to go thru several safety protocol procedures before they are allowed to enter the restaurant)
My personal New Normal Dining Tip ??????
1. The lesser crowd, the better
2. Choose a more "alanganin" time to dine. (say 2:30pm for late lunch or 4:00pm for early dinner)
3. If you arrive at a resto and feel the resto is already too crowded that safety protocols might be compromised, JUST LEAVE. (unless you prefer to wait it out)
So now that we got that out of the way ..... allow me to write a short short FR from my most recent Dine-In experience.
NANKA JAPANESE STEAKHOUSE
Mother Ignacia near Roces Ave., Quezon City
If you are familiar with the (already closed) MOOMBA then you should know the location. And if not, you can google the name for its complete address .......
I can't remember what each dish is called, moreso because I wasn't the one who ordered since I went to the can to do a little personal "business" of my own.
My personal taste for sushi rolls is that the rice should be sticky enough to hold everything together but not overly sticky so that you can still feel each grain from the rice. For this shrimp tempura sushi roll, I feel its ok for me (not the best but ok enough).
On the other hand, since we all came here with the goal of trying out their steak, I kinda feel that these sushi rolls were a bit too heavy considering we also have a pasta dish and the steak itself coming our way. (perhaps a green salad would have been better??? (yes, I spoke to my friend who did the ordering about this)
I think its cute that they used an italian inspired penne pasta to go with a more asian inspired flavor.
Our most awaited main course and it comes in the form of 400 grams++ steak ribeye goodness..... Its cooked to a nice medium rare and quite frankly seasoned well enough that I almost ignored the may sauces that came with it. (my friends however went to town with the sauces)
On a personal sidenote:
I was slightly disappointed that there was no soup listed in their menu ....... but I guess a little understanding is in order since most restos are not yet operating at full capacity. The important thing is, soup or no soup, we all enjoyed our meal that day.

DEAN & DELUCA
Sct Rallos Corner Sct Tuazon, Quezon City
Right off that bat let me just say that I would skip the nitty gitty details of my experience except for the fact that they turned down the airconditioner to very uncomfortable levels. (no wonder everybody else chose to sit at the Al Fresco area)
well ....... food is pretty, but in my opinion, way too expensive.
Note to self ........ If craving for good pasta & pizza, just head back to Francescos Kitchen in San Juan.
Its not to say that the food is bad ....... but I guess if you factor in the comfort level, it does ruin a bit the experience as a whole.

GOLDEN BABOY in AYALA MALLS CLOVERLEAF...ok naman...you are given 7-8 kinds of beef / pork and it is only P650 for 1 person, 2 persons and above is 500....
side dishes are okay though I prefer SAMGYUPSALAMAT's side dishes but meat wise, it is equal...
will definitely eat again for sure....LOL

THE NEW NORMAL ....... Some restos nowadays will be using disposable utensils for diners. And YES, plastic cups are also expected ........
Though I sometimes wish that they avoid resorting to too much cost cutting that we are forced to use these cheap, easily crumpled plastic cups.
On the other hand, this particular resto did encourage diners to bring their own dining utensils.

Since this SUSHI BAKE fad started, I have tried just twice ....... The first was out of curiosity so I ordered from a friend who is an online vendor.
The second one was a pasalubong from my sister
My verdict ???? I'm not a Fan ........
On a Personal Sidenote:
If I really think about it, this concept has been quite familiar already for me when I started to dine in korean restos from the mid-90s up to the present.
