OpenRice.Com x Amici

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Nagmistulang food blogger nanaman ako nung Thursday when Pax invited me to my first Open Rice event (thank you sooo much!). is a restaurant/dining guide in Metro Manila, Cebu, and across the Philippines that provides restaurants' basic info and food reviews made by local customers themselves. Tawag nila sa mga foodies na may account in their webpage ay "Open Ricers"--so cute! Through the website's restaurant search engine, users can easily find their desired dining places by districts and cuisines. May Open Rice din sa Hongkong, and big daw itong site nato dun! :)

Back to Amici...

Spacious and homey feel...lovet..

Nagflashback tuloy ako when I reviewed the first Amici di Don Bosco back during my CandyMag days. Ang strict pa nila non sa features! I remembered having to go back to the place (in Don Bosco, Makati) to send in a letter of permission--para mafeature sila. Haha, tyaga. Anyway... Old school pictures...Circa 2007 Amici:

 Nakakatawa yun quality ng pictures ko noon, hehehe...

A 2007 Anagon, hehehe:

Now, on to the 2010 dishes served during the OpenRice sesh:

More pasta options... (even for the vegetarians! :))

Potatoes (my weakness. tyinaga ko alisin bacon, hehe)


Pumpkin soup, one of my comfort foods:

I love the Open Ricers... They're really nice and easy to be with...

Pax enjoying her Amici experience! Hehe..

 Now on to the desserts! Amici has always been known for their gelato, but their cakes stood out that day!

Cara Mia Gelateria is the budding new home of premium Italian GELATO in the metro today showcasing well-loved dessert creations like GELATO CAKES, GELATO SHAKES, AFFOGATO, CAKES and PASTRIES.

Pax, like a Parisian, choosing her dessert after a hearty meal, hehe:

Gift boxes..

Now, get ready to drooool sa kanilang very fancy and super pretty cakes!

Love it? Super feast sa mata noh! :D

We chose our own desserts... And I still went for the strawberry gelato (lite, kasi gusto ko manalo sa Fit n Right hahaha)..

Thank you Ma'am Macy, Mother Lariza, and Khaezel! 

New blogger friends! :)
