I don't know about you, but I just love breakfast.
I can skip lunch or dinner, but breakfast everyday is a must. As a SAHM, I usually prepare a healthy breakfast at home. But whenever there's a chance, having breakfast outside is always a treat, may it be a breakfast buffet in Sofitel or just a simple longganisa meal in Jollibee.
That is why, when we were offered a free breakfast voucher in Italianni's, I was easily convinced to get the Bistro Group's Premier card despite having to shell out an extra P2,500 on top of our lunch bill. Well, we were actually offered another 40% off on our bill. But yeah, the breakfast voucher pretty much had me.
|For P2,500, The Bistro Group Premier card includes ten (10) P250 vouchers, 30% discount on Mondays, 20% discount on Tuesday to Sunday and 25% discount on your birthday.|
It took a while before we were able to set this breakfast date. My husband is not a breakfast person like me but I'm happy that we were able to schedule it right before the voucher expired. And because it's weekend breakfast, we went there in shorts and flipflops...how convenient!
Italianni's is not really a popular place for breakfast, but we were surprised that they seemed to be frequented by regular guests. They offer a decent selection of breakfast choices from gourmet creations, puff pastry pockets, pancakes, omelettes, crepes, continental specials and local favorites.
Because I love eggs and adobo, I ordered the Eggs Benedict Adobo (P325)- Toasted English Muffins topped with Adobo hash, tomato, kesong puti, poached egg and Hollandaise sauce. It was a delightful fusion of continental and Filipino. The saltiness of the adobo is balanced by the poached egg and kesong puti. And the hollandaise sauce makes it even more flavorful. At first, I thought the serving was a bit too small for its price, but it was actually a heavy protein-packed meal that lasted me throughout late afternoon.
Randy ordered the Three Meat Delight (P395), a heavy platter of chicken longganisa, pork tocino and beef tapa served with sunny-side up egg and garlic fried rice. I took a bite of his beef tapa and for a moment wished I ordered the same thing. It was so good! The beef was tender and it was marinated very well. I At least I know what to order next time. Even though Randy is not a breakfast lover like me, he thought the food was delicious and was worth waking up to.
After our meal, we lingered for a little while to chat, read the newspaper while enjoying their free-flowing coffee. It was a perfect date! Another reason for me to love breakfast.
Italiannis is open for breakfast daily at Bonifacio High Street and Greenbelt 2 from 7:00 am to 10:30 am.
