Food and Friends — and Beer, Too

It is extremely difficult to get my barkada (Tagalog for “group of friends”) together, so when five out of eight of us can make it to dinner, it feels like it’s an event. Yesterday we were finally able to get together for some good food and good beer at Draft in Fort Bonifacio. 
Draft is probably one of the best places in Manila to go if you want a good beer. While I’m no expert on beer, I do prefer it over hard liquor, cocktails, and even wine, so it’s high up there on my list of favourite drinking places for sure. They don’t just serve beer, though, it being a “gastropub.” Their food menu is excellent as well and though we didn’t order them last night, the Angry Drunk Mussels is probably the dish of the restaurant in my opinion. I didn’t get to take many photos (I always get distracted and lazy) but here are me and Lexa enjoying our orders before the others arrived!

Me, Alexa — this was obviously taken after I had devoured my meal, haha. 

Starter: Spinach, Mushroom, and Parmesan Parcels 

Alexa’s dinner: Papardelle Pasta – I had a bite and it was good!

My dinner: Classic Meat Pie

I had been craving shepherd’s pie for the longest time, which is the same as meat pie except that shepherd’s pie is made with lamb. The meat pie was amazing and it totally satisfied my craving! The description of this dish says it’s made “tiger style” meaning that the pie is as big as a tiger’s bite! haha

My beautiful friends!

There were actually six of us in one area last night, but Tam was next door in “Craft.” Yup, Craft and Draft are practically beside each other. Haha! I’m glad I got to spend some time with my old friends (we’ve known each other since at least grade school and have been a barkada since second year high school). Some are working now and two have gone back to school to pursue higher education. I always knew it was happening, but it’s funny to really say that we’re growing up together. Yesterday we called it a night at 12:30, which made us feel ancient, but on the other hand nothing makes me feel as young as I did in my high school days quite like these girls. Hooray for friendship. :)
