Leann's Tea House- Homestyle Korean Grill and Restaurant at Mother Ignacia, QC

Leann's Tea House- sounds Chinese right? You would probably expect some dimsum and other Chinese specialties upon hearing its name. But actually, it's a Korean restaurant that serves authentic Korean dishes in a family-style setting. Unlike most Korean restaurants in the Metro that gear towards the concept of Korean buffet, Leann's Tea House deviates from the eat-all-you-can setup to focus on serving their customers quality yet affordable dishes.

Meshwe- Authentic Lebanese Shawarma in The Z Compound at Malingap Street

When we first visited the famous Zone Compound or the Z Compound in Malingap Street, we were able to discover two great places that offer delicious and budget-friendly eats. First was Me Love You Long Time- a small eatery serving Southeast Asian cuisine particularly Thai and Vietnamese, where we enjoyed some Pad Thai, Fresh Spring Rolls, and a refreshing Thai Iced Tea. 

Our second stop was one of the more popular concessionaires in the compound- Meshwe.

Meshwe Authentic Lebanese Shawarma, as the name suggests, specializes in Middle Eastern cuisine particularly shawarma. They have shawarma wraps, shawarma plates, shawarma rice and other middle eastern specialities like falafel, samosas, pita chips, and hummus.

Me Love You Long Time- Asian Street Food at The Z Compound in Malingap Street

A visit to Maginhawa in Teacher's Village, Quezon City brought us to The Zone Compound located along Malingap Street. The Z Compound, as most people call it, is a small neighborhood of food stalls offering delicious food items at very affordable prices. The compound caters mainly to students and residents within the area, but it has also been drawing attention from several foodies around the Metro. 

Our first stop: Me Love You Long Time

Located at the far end of the compound, Me Love You Long Time is one of the concessionaires that open as early as 3pm. We arrived around 2:30pm and they gladly accommodated our orders. 

Me Love You Long Time specializes in Southeast Asian dishes particularly Thai and Vietnamese cuisine.

Linguini Fini 100% Homemade Fresh Pasta- SM Mega Fashion Hall

Linguini Fini is one of the new restaurants that opened in SM Mega Fashion Hall recently. It originated from Hong Kong and brought to Manila by The Moment Group ( Burger Bar, Cue Modern Barbecue, Manam, 8 Cuts Burger Blends, Phat Pho, Q-Daddy). Honestly, I haven't heard about Linguini Fini until it went abuzz on my social media feeds earlier this month. 

D decided to celebrate his birthday at Linguini Fini a week after it opened last September 8. It wasn't as packed as we thought it would be, but reservations were made nevertheless. 

Complimentary bread was served together with balsamic and olive oil. 

We ordered some of their best-sellers starting with The Bronx (P785)
