discoveries after the wedding bells

all meat outing

Family outings always make pleasurable memories. A few weekends ago we took a trip to subic for some much needed bonding time. Plan was to try the steak at meat plus cafe (care of our gracious benefactor! *big hug!*) & just hang out.

This was hubby & my first trip on the NLEX after its much needed renovation. It was a relief to see that the roads were smooth & devoid of the pot holes & mini road hills we were familiar with. Upon reaching the end of the NLEX we entered the SCEX which featured more beatiful roads and scenery. Vehicles traveling this long stretch were wonderfully obedient to the few road rules, well, most of them at least. With me in the front passenger seat hubby displayed toned down driving, although i could tell his foot on the gas was trying its best not to do its reflex pedal to the metal on seeing beautifully paved straights & curves.

After 5 toll ways & more or less P200 of fees, we passed the sentry’s standard to enter SBMA.

We headed for a quick cup of coffee then off we went to meat plus cafe.

The place was simple, not quite the common fast food restaurant, but something more like a diner. A menu is posted behind the cashier counter but if you’re there for steaks, you could actually choose the cut from a freezer on the right of the counter & have them cook that for you.

Waiting time was about 10-15 min after which our steaks started to come in

The steak was thick and colored perfectly with crisscross grill burns, the inside was pink as this carnivore likes her meat medium rare (and fatty!). This was served with mashed potatoes, gravy and mixed vegetables.

Eat up quickly because the steak gets cold fast.

Although we didnt get to taste this, were guessing it must have been delicious because i just turned my head a few seconds & it was gone, all down the GIT!

After lunch we roamed the groceries (and hardware for the boys) and when the steak had settled in our system, we headed for treetop for some outdoor adventure for the kids.

This place is situated in the more heavily wooded area of subic although a lot nearer to the malls than zoobic & ocean adventure.

A big canopied tree house serves as the registration area & lounge for the less outdoorsy visitors like the one writing this entry.

The more adventurous ones would be harnessed and depending on their pleasure be hoisted on swings, ride trough tree tops or dropped down from a certain height.

Fees are around P300 to P500 ranging from a slow swing ride through the trees, a few seconds of fast gliding, or a stomach churning rappelling drop.

Snacks & drinks are of course exuberantly priced in this area so it would be good to bring your own water & chips if your on a budget. A nice ice cream or yogurt shop would have been great but then again, that’s just me and my cravings. After all, people do go to the treetop adventure for the adventure & not to eat!

Out of town trips are always a favorite of mine, but definitely made more fun with family around!
