House of Griddle, The Yard Street Food Cinema

From its logo and name, the House of Griddle is inspired by the well-known TV series, Game of Thrones. It would not be difficult to explain the “house” term for the people who were able to watch the said series but to formally give a background about the inspiration of the food stall’s name, the Game of Thrones has 7 kingdoms called House Lannister, House Stark and so on. The owner, who is a big fan of the series long before it becomes mainstream, made the right decision since everyone seemed to know GoT today.

We, bloggers, were able to try four of their dishes. So Arya (Stark) ready to check what we got here?

The House Lannister Special – Shrimp Gambas (P169) is seasoned with fresh garlic and butter paired with their special vinegar sauce. With the 8 shrimps curled in the chopping board plate, I would say their serving is generous.

The House Baratheon Special – Beef Bulgogi (P169) tastes from how should I expect it – sweet and savory. Garnished with sesame seeds, this Korean dish always satisfy my tummy!

The House Stark Special – Herbed Pork (P149) looks humble just like the Starks isn’t? However, this is the dish I can’t get over with since it is impeccably seasoned! In addition, the gravy that comes together with the dish is somehow similar to one famous fast food chain we have here in the country.  It is underpriced if I could say, for a big serving and delicious dish. My top dish.

The House Tyrell Special – Bunless Burger Patty (P169) is so-so for me. I like how it is appetizingly plated and the goodness of its first bite. However, the flavor is too rich.

Of all the dishes served, the bonus is actually the House of Griddle Fried Rice! The rice is delectable itself, I swear to all seven gods. :p

House of Griddle is originally located in Caloocan but with the opening of The Yard Streetfood Cinema, the frequent goers of Tomas Morato and Timog area will have now a new food to keep on coming back.

The taste of the food they offer is not far from the food I try in the nice restaurants I have dined. Their staff are friendly and the concept is unique so I am hoping for the development of their menu, their place and anything GoT related so people would have more to look forward to.

Mac N’ Chicks, The Yard Street Food Cinema Food Park

Aside from pizza, I find chicken wings as one of the bests food to share. Not really sure if where it was discovered what chicken wings could magically do on our palate, I’m sure everyone has loved nibbling and savoring the flavors of it.

If in the common fast food chains where plain fried chicken is served, the chicken wings restaurants boldly explore flavors that will be liked by the diners. Just like Mac N’ Chicks at the Yard Streetfood Cinema Food Park, I loved the variety of sauces they offer for the chicken wings.

They have 8 flavors to offer and I got to try three of them. It is served with CHUNKY fries on the side. Just look at the photos!

Spicy wings in this cool weather, The Sriracha Wings (P170) should not be amiss.

Butter, garlic, and parmesan- just imagining these combinations makes me drool. The Garlic Parmesan Wings (P180) is my favorite!

Honey Garlic Wings (P170) is also good especially for people who love to have a kick of sweet flavor to their wings.

I have also tried the Mac & Cheese Balls (P140) It is crunchy but with a surprise of soft bite because of the stuffed gooey cheese. Look the dip has also cheese!

Located on the second floor of The Yard, the stall of Mac N’ Chicks will not really catch your eye. However, this will not be missed by people who have already tried their food from their first branch which is in the Xavierville. The price is beyond reasonable I guess since their wings are really chunky and so is their fries. The downside of the stall though is to have the patience waiting for the food.

Chill Top Resto Bar, Cubao

Quezon City, though known as the most populated city in the Philippines, is not very much popular to skyscrapers as compared to Makati, the business district of the country.

For a person like me who is living in Quezon City, discovering Chill Top was a luck if I may say. I wouldn’t have to go in Makati or in Ortigas and brave myself to a 2-3 hour traffic just to indulge my eyes with the scenic view of the city because this roof deck resto bar is just located in Cubao.  In addition to that, the comfort food and the booze are budget-friendly to the locals so everything is very much favorable.

We went there before sunset and it was just majestic. Tho the penthouse is just up to the 14th floor, there are not many neighboring buildings that would disrupt the 360 view of the city which truly makes the resto bar a good place to chill.


At night, the view is more lovely because of the twinkling city lights.

Most of the food served are “pulutan” or snacks for the alcoholic drinks but don’t worry as they serve rice. The chicken barbecute (P165)  is generously coated in sauce. It’s called “mini” but it still contributed to making my tummy full. The Hickory Dickory Pork (P254) has a sweet sauce yet I’m telling you not to expect too much of the tenderness of the meat.

The newest addition to their menu, Flasher Squid (P320), is indeed flashy. It was served to us in its towering state where the squid is coated to add crispiness with the vinegar dip on the side. The flasher squid tasted great, seasoned well.

During my first visit, I was able to get into their Chill Along, an amenity for people who wants to go singing. I have tried a lot of drinks that night but it is Choco Slush P205 (gin, vodka, rum, chocolate, and milk) that captured my taste buds. It is sweet but not too much and alcoholic but not quite. It’s a drink I got to enjoy the most.

Going to Chill Top Cubao is not disappointing whether it will get crowded or not since it occupies two floors. The first floor of the penthouse is airconditioned but the glass windows still made us have a beautiful view. At night, it comes with the live band.

Meanwhile, the second floor of the penthouse is the open air one with the 360 view.Chill Top (11)-2048x2000Chill Top (13)-2048x2000Chill Top (40)-2048x2000

And lastly, a Chill Along KTV Bar is located near the elevator and is also spacious. It can accommodate 30 pax plus it has own comfort room. The price as I have said is pocket-friendly and the serving is reasonable for the price. The taste is delicious but nothing exceptional. The waiters are polite but the food was prepared for a long time.
