Sunday Date

We've been hearing a lot of good reviews about How to Train your Dragon. We generally do not watch animated films in the cinema because we find it not worth it but for movies with really high ratings from Rotten tomatoes and Click the city, we make exceptions.

So off we went to SM North Edsa to see if they were showing the movie in IMAX. Unfortunately, they weren't but they still had it on 3d so we decided to watch it there instead. Besides, we also wanted to go around SM North Edsa because we haven't been there in a while.
We first went to the Block to look for a place to eat. We wanted to eat at Aristocrat but the people there weren't really paying any attention to us which is a no-no for me because restaurants should entertain their customers as soon as they enter the door and also their tables were dirty.

So we ended up eating in Burgoo. They had a tie up with a hotel in Singapore where they give out coupons to customers for discounts in the hotel. Too bad the coupon were only valid until June, we wouldn't be able to use it because our trip is on July.
The location of Gumbo was good, they had couches which offers a view of Edsa. Mac was so proud of his shirt which we bought from Bohol. It's a parody of the San Miguel Logo and tagline. He actually saw people looking and reading the text in his shirt.

Mac ordered the rootbeer float which was how a root beer float should taste like sans the ice cubes (unlike the ones they sell in Mcdo...)
Burgoo is also one of those restaurants were they use paper as table covers and you can draw to keep yourself busy while waiting for your food.
I was trying to copy the root beer float glass and Mac was drawing mountains and rice fields. Obviously, we really do not have a talent in drawing. =)

We ordered a large grilled porkchop and the regular Burgoo Kebab. The food was alright. Nothing to rave about. I think it was too expensive for the taste. I guess it was the service and ambiance that we were paying for. We didn't even finish the Kebab.
After lunch, we had some time to kill before the movie so we went around to shop. At the basement we saw a stall near the escalators were there were a lot of people on line. It was Scrambles. The store was selling the kind of scrambles that we would buy on the street when we were kids. We just couldn't pass it up.

And it did not disappoint. It really brings you back to when you were a kid. It tastes like the real thing. And it's so affordable at only P7.00 for an 6oz. cup, 10 for a 8oz. and 17 for a 12oz.

There's also the option to add extra milk, mallows and rice crispies for P4.00 each. I would go back to SM North just for this. I hope they put one in Megamall or somewhere nearer to us.

I wonder if they offer this up for franchise. I'm interested.
After the Food Trip, it was time to watch the movie. And the critics were right, we enjoyed it. The movie was a treat for kids and adults alike. Kids will love the flying scenes and how cute the dragon is and adults will really appreciate the nice story that revolves around real friendships. I think it's one of the best movies shown in 2010 so far.
After the movie, I saw the Peanut Butter Co. store. I have read about it in other blogs and was interested to try it. I decided to try the Elvis sandwich and it was good. Specially for peanut butter lovers like me, this store is heaven.

My sandwich is just peanut butter, bacon and bananas. It was surprisingly good. The combination was ingenious.

Can't wait to try out the other items in their menu.

SM North Edsa is really one of the malls where there is everything for everyone. We really have fun trying out new things whenever we're here. Till the next visit. =)
