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.

Admit it, sometimes there are dresses that look beautiful but does not look good when it’s worn.

Factors like the body frame affect whether the gown is the right one or not. On this simple guide, it will help you to widen your knowledge about the gown that fits best to certain body type.

An hourglass shape is a woman with hip and bust measurements with an almost equal size with a narrow waistline. An hourglass shape can almost wear any type of silhouette but to accentuate the gift she has, it is best to try a trumpet gown. Trumpet gown starts to get fit in the middle part of the thigh as shown in the picture below.

The hips are larger than your bust when you are a pear shape. The arms and shoulders are proportionately slim so an empire dress or a ball gown is good for you. An empire dress cut its bodice below the bust as shown below.

An apple shape has a round shoulder line, an average to a big bust, and full around the middle. A line silhouette and ball gown would fit you best. See how this A-line gown cut the illusion of losing a full middle.

Your bottom half is smaller than your top when you have an inverted triangle shape. You have little definition between your waist and hips so wearing a ball gown or a mermaid is highly recommended to you. The black prom dresses are really luxurious. As shown below is a mermaid cut where the tight part is in the knee area comparing to a trumpet silhouette where it starts to hug at the middle thigh.

Lastly, a rectangle shape has a straight shoulder line and little definition of waistline. Wearing a-line or ball gown is good for you. Here’s a wedding ball gown sample. This could also be the white prom dresses wishlist should you channel the bride in you.
