I always thought that good falafels were hard to find in the Philippines. That is until I heard about Beni’s Falafel. I wish it was walkable from where I live but alas, it’s quite far. Worth the drive though!
Aside from the flowers, the reverse offspring totally disregarded Valentine’s Day and we treated it like another normal Sunday where we just go about our own business. We (yes, yes, I am THE ever increasingly odd numbered wheel) were wary of eating out because of the crowds so lunch was a simple meal at home. Dinner wasn’t too different, my dad opting to stay home and have fruit while mom and I ventured to Crying Tiger Street Kitchen in Poblacion.

Tucked away in Brgy Poblacion near A. Venue on Makati Ave is Ming Kee. Located in a skinny building across the Berjaya Hotel with barely any parking but with a wide of a variety of seafood for show and the kitchen where you can see the experienced chefs working. I believe the restaurant has either 4 or 5 floors and there’s an elevator for customers but none for the staff (or a dumbwaiter for the food) so I saw them running up and down the stairs the whole night.
I had called to make a reservation on a Thursday night thinking that the place would be packed. The reservation needed to be changed and the staff was kind enough to allow me to push back the time by 30 mins.
