Almon Marina Sandwich Bar and Deli

What a tiring day! I woke up with the memory of a nice talk with peanutbutter last night.

My schedule included accompanying my cousin, who came all the way from Zambales, at Henry’s in Glorietta5. She bought a new camera, lens, tripod, camera bag and remote. Can you imagine that?

And while we were at Henry’s, I saw my crushes. My heart almost skipped a beat. I told them that I’d be back for them but I can’t promise when. Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM Lens is just too expensive {read: 65 grand} and I think it will take me a year to save for the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens.

*Sigh* …now I wish I made a bet at the lottery.

Alfredo with Beef and Mushroom {P180/$4.28}

 Anyways, it was fun time with the kids once again…running, fighting, kiddie rides…and oh, I had my  business card printed, hee. It’s cute but I think it’s out of personality.

Towards the end of the day, our empty stomach took us to Almon Marina. I used to love Almon Marina because of the atmosphere and the cold cuts.

For some odd reason, today, Ykaie didn’t request for pesto pasta. She wanted white sauce but I thought Carbonara maybe too rich for her so I ordered Alfredo which she and Cyra shared.

I love that the sauce is not too thick that it drowns the pasta, but it’s a little short on the mushroom and the beef.  I found only two slices of mushroom and four thin slices of beef. The taste is delicious, though, and ykaie finished her share. I had a couple of spoonfuls, myself.

Roast Chicken {P175/$4.16}

The Roasted Chicken came with rice pilaff and your choice of one siding. Rome chose mashed potato with gravy. I wasn’t able to try the chicken but he said it was good.

I think it looks juicy and tasty. what do you think?

Puttanesca {P180/$4.28}

Sis ordered what I think is her favorite pasta of all time. Now, don’t get me wrong. I love fresh tomatoes. I love tomato-based pastas. I love anchovies on everything {just not my pb&j sandwich}.But maybe I don’t like it’s combination with capers and pasta because I’m not fond of this pasta flavor at all.

Minestrone Soup {forgot the price, sorry}

This has the usual ingredients of minestrone like a little bits of pasta, some beans, carrots and potato pieces but Almon Marina’s version is thicker.

I am a soup girl remember? So, I liked it…

Very Berry Cheesecake {P95/$2.26}

 I am also a dessert my meal of soup and dessert is kind of a complete meal for me. Besides, the kids ate my oreo cheesecake a few hours ago…so I totally deserve this…

    I too lament about not being able to afford a good camera. Right now am doing what I can with my point and shoot one. 
    Lovely blog!
