Lunch at the Buko Bar at Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa

It was the first time I ate a 400-gram giant beef patty on sesame bun, with cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, pickles, tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, onions. I couldn’t finish all of it. This is what I had for lunch the moment we arrived at the Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa two months ago.

Two years ago, I enjoyed my luxurious stay here with sis and Ykaie. I wanted peanutbutter to experience the same thing on his last vacation, so I booked us for two nights. Details of our stay will be at The Wandering Peach, all I’m gonna show you here is what we had for lunch the day that we arrived.

My 400-gram giant beef patty came with a side of french fries and salad. Like I said, it was such  a big serving that I wasn’t able to finish it and I didn’t even eat the top of the bun!

peanutbutter ordered something “manly” for himself. I forgot the name on the menu but it’s something like Roasted Pork. What came was a marinated roasted chunk of where the pork belly meet the ribs. It’s very tender…very juicy… and very FATTY! It’s as big as my hand and also came with a side salad and fries. The serving is actually good for two people!

And we were thinking, I shouldn’t have ordered that ginourmous burger!

Ykaie had her favorite Fish and Chips which we had wrapped and taken to our room because she was only able to eat one piece. Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious and perfectly cooked but I guess she was just too excited to go swimming that’s why she couldn’t eat.

This is what out table looked like…

And this is us! Too bronzed for photo sessions, hee!
