It is one of those weeks of the month where in we just want to spend money just to redeem our dreadful souls from the accumulated stress clogged in our veins.
It is one of those weeks where we just wanted to take a time out from the reality and c’est la vie!
LOL how I wish! Honestly, I was just having a really hard time studying at home that’s why I decided to meet up with Pammy in BGC, and do our school works together. I don’t know why, but usually, when I do my school works outside our house I always get things done faster.
Puzzles is a restaurant that will make your ‘catching up’ time with your barkada more fun because they offer a vast collection of board games that you may unlimitedly choose from for only Php100. Plus, they are also a member of Booky Prime Restaurants that’s why they can offer up to Php500 worth of discount!
Personally, I am not fond of board games. As far as I remember Snakes & Ladders and Millionaires are the only board games I have played since I was young. But I think, if we were not busy when we ate here, we might have spent the whole day getting all giddy with all the board games, changing games after one game and learning as many board games as possible.
The Puzzles is also a two-storey building with high ceilings. But as much as I would like to talk about how the second floor looks like, when we asked if we can occupy the 2nd floor, the cashier said that they had to fill the 1st floor first before they allow its occupancy.
And also the menu written in the blackboard is not their entire menu those are just the “manager’s choice” or their “recommended” and they really have a printed menu.
Before we started studying for our final exam in Discourse Analysis, we had late lunch first. We ordered Beer-battered Chicken fingers with honey mustard dip (Php370) which are soft chicken breast strips which are cooked tenderly you may eat it by itself or you may dip it to add more tangy taste.
We also ordered Baked Chicken Parmigiana (Php290) because I am a pasta lover and the way I rate a restaurant often depends on this. Yes, the pasta tasted well, but it has the tendency that when it gets a little more exposed to air, the pasta absorbs the oil making it stick together and become dry. But nevertheless, the flavor sat well in the pasta.
For our dessert, we had Oreo Afraid of the Dark (Php150) which is a wicked oreo (oreo inside a pancake) topped with vanilla ice cream with chocolate sprinkles. And we actually got two of this because we also answered the feedback in the Booky app, and even though it’s so sweet– of course, who says no to dessert, right?
In the Philippines, there are already a lot of restaurants that combined gaming and food. Maybe it’s their way of marketing to male clients or maybe just to put a twist, but usually when they do this it’s either their food will not taste good or the games are limited.
But for Puzzles, they were able to make sure to prioritize the food. All the dishes that we ordered really tasted really well! In fact, the prices are reasonable for their quality.
So there you have it! If you want to visit a quality restaurant with board games available, go to Puzzles! You can find it at Ground Floor, Fort Pointe 2 Building, The Fort Strip, 28th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. Hope to hear your experience!
