I had a pretty low-key Saturday (as always). Just a little shopping and then went hopping from one place to another. I woke up at lunch time, left and went shopping for a bit, then afterwards headed out to Maginhawa to check out this Harry Potter-themed cafe that just opened up. Got there around 3 or 4 PM and there was actually a queue outside! Not wanting to line up (it was drizzling!), I decided I wanted churros for merienda instead.
I ordered churros con chocolate
from Sancho Churreria Manila
and I loved it! Perfect for the gloomy weather. The churros were a tad bit oily but I definitely like them better than the churros from La Lola, especially since the order came with a really generous serving of yummy chocolate dip! My boyfriend, who's been coughing like crazy for the past few days, ordered the spinach soup.
I tried a couple spoonfuls and I found it delicious as well.
After our merienda, we went back to Katipunan, dropped by National Bookstore, and then finally decided to just head out to UP Town Center. We just went around the mall for a bit and then right before leaving, we stumbled upon this stall selling all sorts of Italian delicacies! My boyfriend got a risotto ball while I got a ginormous calzone to eat for dinner. Funny thing is, while waiting for our orders to get heated up, one of the owners noticed us looking at the cold cuts so he takes the whole slab out and cuts us some portions to try out! We headed home after that, with me happily eating my calzone.
|Happy me with my yummy calzone (and yup, my nails are so badly chipped)|
That's it for now! I still have a couple readings to read for my classes. Stay warm, everyone! xx
