Crazy for Peanut Butter

There's nobody I know that loves peanut butter more than my tita Pau. So just last monday on our expected bonding day, I decided to take her to Peanut Butter & Co where all their dishes consist of none other than... PEANUT BUTTER!!!

Located at the 2/F of the Regis Center, Katipunan Ave. (Right in front of Ateneo)

They also sell their own peanut butter! Must try that out next time. :)

The TriPhone buddies. :) 

I've been to PB&co. about three times perhaps but never tried ordering any of their main dishes. So I opted for the Classic Spaghetti being the pasta lover that I am. I got the whole order (P135.00) but if you can opt for the half order as well for only (P75.00).

Spaghetti with traditional meat sauce blended with PB&co. Sun-dried Tomato Peanut Butter. 

Sounds weird, right? Spaghetti and Peanut butter.. I couldn't conjure up how that would actually taste like, but I just went for it anyway. It wasn't so bad! First few bites were a bit odd, but the taste grows on you. Promise! :)

My tita ordered Combo Set 2 (P125.00) which consisted of:

Cold asian noodles, PB sandwich, and Iced tea.

The sandwich that my brother and I ordered the last time we went here. 

Elvis, The King Sandwich. 
Peanut Butter, Banana, and Bacon.

I'm a sucker for majority things bacon! So this sandwich definitely caught my attention. Plus banana with savory dishes aren't so bad. In fact, I usually eat my Adobo with slices of banana. The balance of salty and sweet are just preeminent. 

Being a pescatarian, my tita also ordered this sandwich with fish, peanut butter, and lettuce. 

White Chocolate Orange Sandwich -- how amazing does that sound?!  

A citrusy burst of mandarin orange slices coupled with the sweet blend of PB&co's creamy peanut butter and our special vanilla cream cheese filling.

Absolutely enjoyed this sandwich. Definitely ordering this the next time I go back!

After all that peanut butter.. we decided to mosey around the mall and decided to check out Coach Rio's store, Riovana

Looking for new athletic wear? Riovana's the place to go! They have such a wide variety of shoes from brands like Nike, Adidas, New Balance etc. They also sell compression gear, Race gels, and Cellphone cases (Otter Box).

Fell in love with these lunarlons's by Nike because its colour is just so eye-catching! Gives this electric feel to it. 

Aren't these sports bras so cute? Wanna get them in all colours. <3

Here in Riovana, not only can you try the shoe on but actually test them while running, too! The employees are really nice and accommodating so you don't have to worry.

SEBASTIAN'S ICE CREAM! Probably the only artisan ice cream place in Manila I find myself going back to. Sebastian's is always consistent and never fails to surprise me with their new flavours! 

Take this one as an example.. Green Mango & Bagoong?! Talk about being patriotic! Haha.

I felt like something oreo that night (what's new) so I ordered the Cookies 'n Cream bar coated with white chocolate. :") It was good! But it was a bit too sweet I felt the need to drink water after every other bite.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, one of my favourites and their best seller! I forgot the flavour below, I think it was some Dark Belgian Chocolate Sugar Free thing. Haha. Both paired extremely well! Albeit, I suggest you prepare a bottle of water. It's just way too sweet without, but that's just me. 

I know that majority of the food places I write about are in Makati, so I hope you north people enjoyed this entry! Hehe.
