Another round of My Kitchen plus Paco Park

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

Well what do you know; Deal Grocer had ANOTHER deal for My Kitchen! My family loved the experience so much we bought coupons again. We made sure to go for lunch so that we could visit nearby Paco Park as well. With the coupon, we got a whole panizza for P395 (Originally P792). We chose from 3 new flavors they offered.

Oasis Salad (P510)
A blend of artichokes hearts, roasted peppers, capers, caramelized onion, sun dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, arugula and romaine lettuce with red wine vinaigrette.
A refreshing salad to start the meal and cleanse our palettes, this was a good start to our meal. 

Fra Diavolo
A tasty little devil, calls on seafood lovers to a spicy feast of olive oil marinade tuna flakes, kalamata olives, capers, anchovies, roasted pepperoncini and fresh Italian parsley.

An homage to the city of Manila, this one-of-a-kind creation is made with spicy homemade Italian sausages, smoked bacon, fresh sage, assorted mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes for a seriously meaty delight.

As always the 2 panizzas were divine. They had different flavor profiles and we both loved them. With just those 3 things, we were full! This post is short and sweet simply because I was so happy I couldn’t ask for anything more.

I was excited to visit Paco Park, it was my first time. The park is small and well maintained. Get ready to be bombarded with photos.

Paco Park welcomed us on a beautiful afternoon. Mass finished earlier during the day so the park only had a couple of people. 

The park was the first resting place of our national hero, Jose Rizal.

It was also a former cemetery. You can still see remnants of it but there are no more bodies here. 

The care takers gather the fallen kalachuchis to dry and sell them to potpourri makers. The kalachuchis reminded me of Miriam High School.
Clothes sunbathing.
Sssshhh…don’t wake up the cat!

We saw friends hanging out and some practicing arnis.
The park was so serene, I wanted to stay longer and chill. Visitors can spend time in the park and plop down on the grass.

Paco Park is definitely worth a visit. There isn’t much to inside or near so prepare for that. If it was near my hood, it would be my happy place. It has enough trees to shield you from the sun but still allow you to bask in it. The calm vibe during the day has the potential of becoming a good “wala lang” day spot. I can imagine myself writing, taking photos and brainstorming here. If you find yourself in the area, try a quick stopover at Paco Park.
