MonDATES: Spicy Fingers

Due to our busy working schedule, we rarely get to have weekend dates, or dinnerdates anymore. So today, Gus and I decided to make the most out of my light workload and his dayoff. We went around Greenbelt, grabbed a cup of coffee from McDonald's (because I always need my cup of coffee everyday), and went back to strolling around. I showed him the iTouch case I wanted to buy, and after that, we decided to look for a place where we can have lunch. On the way to Greenbelt 1, we chanced upon a tarp, which offered P120 lunch meals from 10 am to 3 pm. We scanned through the list of their lunch offerings, but continued to walk, thinking whether or not we should try it. The meals they offered looked good, and for P120, we decided to go back and try it out. 

The place looked more like a bar, booths and tables were both available in the air conditioned area, with a stage in the corner. But at 2:30 in the afternoon, it was a quiet little resto. There weren't a lot of people inside. Apart from Gus and I, the only other person eating inside was an American. Still, we went in and sat in one of the booths. The lady who was attending to us was very nice. Instead of shooing us away because I had a cup of coffee in my hand from another restaurant, she simply asked if it was okay for her to transfer my coffee into a glass, which I agreed to of course. We were shocked that she asked nicely, instead of going with the usual, "Hindi po pwede 'yan sa loob, ma'am." (You can't bring that inside, ma'am.) I had a feeling that this was going to be a good, blog-worthy lunch. Assuming the food is as good as the experience. :) 

After looking at their lunch offerings one more time, Gus ordered the Hungarian Sausage Meal, which had a whole grilled sausage covered in spicy tomato sauce with onions and bell peppers, and mixed vegetables on the side. We are pleased to inform you that they used a real sausage. We were afraid that with the inexpensive price tag, we would get more of a hotdog, rather than a sausage. But thankfully, it was real sausage with a flavorful, spicy tomato-based sauce.

I got their Tuna Salpicao. It came with a cup of rice, and salsa. The tuna was real tuna, not the flaked, canned tuna one would somtimes get. I was actually surprised, but delighted, that they used real tuna for the dish. I didn't taste much of the garlic, but the dish was good enough. It was flavorful, and the tuna had no aftertaste. What's best about these meals we got was that it also came with a glass of iced tea. 

If you want to have a more-than-the-usual, inexpensive lunch here in the Makati area, you can visit Spicy Fingers in Greenbelt 3, right beside Cafe Mary Grace. You can get delicious meals for only P120. Note that this is only applicable during lunch time (10 am to 3 pm).

Price Range: P120 per person (lunch time promo)
