The Sweet Pea of McKinley's Food Adventure

   Our eventful, short journey around Venice Piazza, McKinley Hill ended up with a blast after discovering Chef Florabelle Co-Yatco's Sweet Pea.   Last July I got an invitation from a property sales consultant, it was for a gastronomic delight, the Food Adventure.   To cut the month-long culinary episode story short, we picked this restaurant to be the best amongst the twelve restaurants  who participated.   We based our selection over first, how the staffs treated each Food Adventure Passport holders, second, the quality of the food being sampled, third, the ambiance of the place.   I don't want to hassle my self up with rating or categorizing the twelve restos.   For me it's simple!  If you are going to sell your products in any ways (marketing stints and crazy deals), sell it like you are selling your own house and you are bargaining.   Imagine nowadays, everyone who has the capability, the money and the guts to venture food business is likened to a school of fish in a measured lake (aha, not ocean, just lake).  More and more kids are taking up either HRM or Culinary Courses and are training to be seasoned chefs.   And everyday, a new restaurant is a budding talk of the town for a short period until a new one comes.   A short-lived fame, unless you risk doing everything to always be heard and diners flocking your place.   Well that's how I see it, that is my personal opinion.
     So going back to Sweet Pea, never did I know that this charming and cheery place is owned by Chef Florabelle.   We had an outstanding and history-relevant experience at Crisostomo at Nuvali, another baby of hers.   No wonder the menu was so carefully thought of  and the staff were gracious.

Seeing the brick walls made me so full, with all the cake pictures, I didn't bother getting dessert...hahaha, no but the real reason was having a hefty serving on our plates!
Salisbury Steak,   P 275
A plate has a humungous Hamburger steak, a dollop  of mashed potato, buttered veggies and topped with sunny-side egg.
Hainanese Chicken,   P 275
Served with Vegetable rice,  crunchy cucumber slices with three sauces.
Beef Steak

    So after the Food Adventure hype we decided to go back to Venice Piazza and dine there and we went there with Bhogs' sister and indeed she said she would definitely have her family go back here.   Sad thing for her though she didn't know about the Food Adventure but good thing she didn't, cause with the mishaps we had concerning some of the restaurants she might have had a fight or two with them.
