Tiendesitas + Panciteria Lido = Kimi's Bday Treat

After the Zoo trip we decided to go to EastWood Mall and have our lunch at The  Flying Pig. Suddenly mommy noticed that the other piece of her earrings is missing and remembered that she left it in one of the accessory stores at Tiendecitas, we had no choice but to go back. 
Tiendesitas is Pasig City's newest shopping and family entertainment destination owned by Ortigas & Company. Tiendesitas caters to foreign and domestic shoppers looking for the best Philippine products. It showcases the best that the Philippines can offer - native food, fashion wear and accessories, furniture, antiques, handicrafts, personal care and novelty items, pets, plants, and other locally made products. More than 450 traders, mostly entrepreneurs from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao are offering specialty merchandise. 
Tiendesitas sits on a 30,000 square meter area within Frontera Verde, which houses 12 Maranao architecture-inspired pavilions called "villages." Indigenous materials used in creative ways adorn these villages using chemically-treated cogon grass for roof, old kalesa wheels into chandelier frames to light the restrooms, and duyans (hammock) scattered around to allow shortbreaks amidst frenzied shopping activities. The result is a stylized and unique Filipino architecture. The design of the complex also gives attention to the needs of the disabled and the elderly.
At night, shoppers can be treated to acoustic and live band performances. There is also an area dedicated to special shows, exhibits, and unique Filipino presentations. Kids and adults can also enjoy riding the kalesa, which goes around Tiendesitas.
Tiendesitas…Truly a showcase of Pinoys' best.

Since we're already hungry, we just settled on one of the stall on the food court which caters grilled foods. I ordered Adobo, Chicken Skin, Fried Chicken and 3 Rice (Php320.00) from Fat Butchies and Hubby ordered Barbecue, Isaw and Innihaw na Baboy from Archies.
here's my all time favorite chicken skin...hehehe
our inihaw galore
After a super hot (the food court is not air-conditioned) lunch we then stroll and explore Tiendesitas. The place was so big, just like Divisoria it offers a lot of merchandise from clothing's, accessories, shoes etc. The only difference is it's a bit more "sosyal" than Divi and it has lots of pet shops which caters mostly on dog needs and grooming. Since Kimi's is already irritable about the hot temp we then decided to leave. On our way to the parking lot i noticed a "Sitsirya" stall of pasalubongs . Kimi likes Pastillas, so i bought him a box of this sweet goodies.
Sari Saring Sitsirya Pastillas (Php 140.00)
"so creamy with just enough sweetness..love it"

Part of the birthday plan is to go to Magamall's Toy Kingdom, sadly we cant find a place to park since the largest parking lot of Megamall is under construction. We just then proceed to Mall of Asia's Toy Kingdom. Kimi strolled and play for a while, then at last fall asleep. 

We left MOA at around 5:30 pm to pickup my parents at Angela Las Pinas for Kimi's Dinner treat. We cant think of a place to eat because we're so tired, so i just suggested a resto that's near to my parent's place. The 1st choice was Puregold's Luk Foo but because of the traffic hubby turned left and drove to BF Presidents Avenue instead. There we found a Panciteria Lido Branch.

Lido's Menu
Lido's Familia Feat Set
Hubby told me that it's one of the oldest resto in the Philippines just like MamonLuk. It's original branch was on Quiapo. Lido Resto is already 70 years old and it's the Home of Pugon Roasted Asado.

Lido Menu
We ordered the following:
Lido Syphon Brewed Coffe for me (Php 65.00)
"Combine the 100 year old brewing method of syphoning
with Lido's own special bean blend and the result is a
full bodied cup of coffee with an exceptional aroma and
an enticing flavour craved by the most discriminating
coffee connoisseur. Our coffee is a customer favourite
since it was introduced in 1994."
(love it..tastes like UCC coffee)
Eight Treasure Soup
"soup which consists of chicken, nido, tofu, greenpeas, veggies, mushroom"
Pugon Roasted Asado (Php 267.00)
"Panciteria Lido’s more than 70 year old secret recipe!Concocted from an ancient Chinese pork roast recipe byits Chinese chef, Mr Lido. This carefully cured loin ofpork is roasted using an Old-Fashioned brick oven injust the right amount of heat from firewood. Every biteof this ambrosial creation releases exquisite flavour!"
(tastes like our classic christmas ham less the sweetness...yummy)
Yang Chow (Php 185.00)
Chami Special
"Noodles first appeared in Northern China aroundAD100. It was the Chinese rulers who were the first toenjoy this delicacy made from long strings of flour whichlater became a symbol for longevity (or long life) wheneaten.
Panciteria Lido’s decades old Chami-special was carefully
concocted to pleasure the palate of our most discerning guests.
 This noodle dish has been the best seller of our Pancit category
since the day it was first introduced on our menu."
Steamed Fish Fillet Soy Sauce (Php 255.00)
"just plain steamed fish in soy sauce"
Spareribs in Salt and Papper (Php 195.00)
All in all, all our orders taste great as expected...
