Imagination and Good Food

i remember as a child, i was always told not to play with my food.  it was hard at times because my imagination had a tendency to run wild (must be all those story books as a kid).

today, several years after leaving the comforts of home to start my own, my creative imagination can still be as rich as it was back then.

now, doesn’t this look like a centurion to you?


a yummy one at that!  i had taken notice after biting into what seemed to be the best empanada i had ever tasted in my life.  i could not resist taking a photo to document my great find and after looking at my shot, my imagination just got the better of me! hahaha!

i first tasted San Lo’s Famous Empanada after sampling one at Rockwell’s Bakers Dozen.

after sinking my teeth into the sweet crust and savory chicken filling, i was hooked!


each of the empanada costs around P55, a little steep for an empanada you might say, but its well worth a try.  to say the least, if i was asked to eat just the crust of this delicious pie, i would gladly ask for seconds, thats how good it is!  its sweet, buttery and crispy crust, and the hot, creamy chicken filling is such a treat…yuuuum….

i confess, i gobbled up the centurion in less than 2 minutes, craving for a second one!  now thats good food!

  1. Thank for visiting my blog.

    Last time I was in Manila, I remember having some really good empanada at Empanada Royale. It was this little stand at Shang-Ri-La. Though, I’m not sure if it’s still there. II really liked their ham and cheese version.

  2. I tried making empanadas myself but using frozen pastry dough rather homemade. These looks sooo good – I wish I’d known about this place when we visited Makati last December. On the list of the next trip . . .
