Everyday is a good day for teams of Marites to come together and exchange some of those proverbial “tea.”
If the encounter happens in a posh area with lots of green spaces such as in the eateries in Bonifacio Global City, then so much the better. (Because Maritesses love them some nature!)
How do I know this?
Because I’m a Marites myself, and I recently swarmed together with my fellow Maritesses for some “tea” and company at BGC.
Our first stop was in Toby’s Estate, home of beautiful coffee sustainably sourced from farmers around the globe. (Because we Maritesses care about sustainability!)
Here, we exchanged chikas over a filling and energizing brunch, which included:
Mocha (Php190). A hot latte made with a splash of rich chocolate syrup.
Hot Chocolate (Php170). A rich and comforting cocoa drink.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Php295). Oodles of melty cheese in crisp butter-toasted bread served with house-made potato chips and a tangy tomato compote.
Eggs Benedict (Php385). My breakfast of choice composed of sliced ham topped with poached eggs on over toasted English muffins, all drenched with house-made Hollandaise sauce.
This tita-ish brunch powered us for a day of lively conversations.
However, the fun didn’t stop here because we hopped over right next door to…
Pink’s Hotdogs and Burgers
At this local offshoot of Hollywood famous hotdog franchise, our group of Maritesses continued on our merry exchanges.
We didn’t see any Tinseltown celebrities but we did bond over some yummy snackables:
Milkshakes (Php322). Nothing feels like a childhood indulgence quite look a tall glass of milkshakes.
Hand-cut French Fries (Php190). Freshly deep-fried sticks of potatoes served with ketchup. Great for munching!
Sausage Sampler (Php620). Sausages served with pickles, mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise.
With such munchable treats, who would want this Maritess’ Day Out to end?
These branches of Toby’s Estate and Pink’s Hot Dogs are located at the the High Street Park, Shangri-la at the Fort, 30th Street corner 5th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
What’s your bet for your chika session snackables with your Maritess friends?
