Photoblog: The Aristocrat Food Tour

Last Sept. 8 was my first time to do a whole day food tour of the historic family restaurant, The Aristocrat!

Breakfast @ The Aristocrat Manila

I had to eat breakfast before leaving the house so I have the energy to travel to San Andres, Manila. At the restaurant, I opted for a lighter meal so I ordered an American Bacon plate (P255 /$6). It comes with 4 strips of bacon, 2 eggs, 2 pieces of toasted bread with a choice of butter or marmalade as spread.



My co-bloggers ordered other breakfast menu items:

With Christmas around the corner, my eyes lit up as we're served Puto Bumbong and Puto Bibingka!

Lunch @ The Aristocrat San Pablo

On our next stop, we traveled 4 hours to The Aristocrat branch located at San Pablo, Laguna's pioneer shopping mall, Ultimart.

[Late] Merienda @ The Aristocrat SM Dasmarinas

After our shopping trip at Liliw, Laguna (I wish we had more time!), the team went to the opening of branch number 14!

I was still full from lunch + the sandwiches I ate in between traveling so I opted to pick three merienda offerings (no photo of the Arroz Caldo).

There was also dinuguan, puto, and ensaymada.. Spell BLOATED! Haha! But.. who said you can't have space for dessert? :P

Dinner-turned-Midnight Snack @ The Aristocrat Manila

It was almost midnight. We're all tired and the lack of sleep from last night was already taking its toll on me.

The Aristocrat Bakeshop

Before heading home, I bought pasalubong!


One loaf of whole wheat bread (P70), chocolate cream puffs, ensaimada malolos and Torta delos Reyes!

I wasn't able to taste the Torta delos Reyes (half @ P460) during breakfast but everyone has been raving about it and it didn't disappoint! Who can resist Sans Rival + chocolate anyway? :P
