A Diner Where Our Heart Is…

I am not sure if you can relate, but my friends and I usually prefer to meet up where it's homey and not noisy. These are the basic requirements for us when dining out to catch up and have a warm get-together. Of course, the menu has to be good and at the same time reasonable.

That is why it has been a habit for us to book lunch or dinner at Chii's Grill & Bar.

Last Saturday lunchtime, we booked a table at our favorite branch in Greenbelt 5. For some reason, their Greenbelt 5 branch is convenient to visit and service is really superb. Do you know that feeling that you are really attended to with sincerity? That's exactly how we feel when we visit the branch.

When ordering, you could not really go wrong looking at their menu. Why? There's really no pretense in their food photo versus whet they really serve you.

By default, we order the following best sellers every time we visit:

Not only do you protect them for possible breakage, you also save time in cleaning small items after the party.Make sure there are big trash bins strategically located where guests can see them. Buy the big, black garbage bag that is easy to seal when it's full. Check them every now and then while the party progresses to determine if ther…
