New Discovery: Sweet Pea Piazza Mckinley Hill

How time really flies! 🙂 Do you ever catch yourself staring blankly in the air sometimes and just recall what did you do all those years while you were growing up? or what were the series of events which led to where you are now? As I look back at those good old fun times I cannot help but feel a little nostalgic reminiscing those memories and food trips I had back then with my girls.

Those were the days when we could just laugh to our hearts delight and eat all the pounds away with our gregarious food trips and adventures when all of us except Pilar were single and just wanted to have a grand time. Since I just recently got into the habit of blogging I decided to post all of my past food trips and adventures also here because like our mantra in life: Memories should all be documented, not forgotten.

After work especially come payday me and my friends usually gather up and pick a restaurant we haven’t tried before and we would taste their Menu and have a great time just chatting the night away while enjoying the ambiance and feel of the place. We just had one golden rule: (Never ever eat in the same restaurant twice!).   So now begins my throwback to three years ago.

Even from way, way back I loved taking photos of my daily ventures and food trips so here goes the first one: We tried out this cozy and feel good place along Mckinley Hill since it’s near our workplace and  since it just recently opened and we heard a lot of good reviews about it. It’s called… “Sweet Pea” (You nailed it!).

Sweet Pea “A Chef’s Kitchen” is an unassuming cozy restaurant that serves American comfort food among others. You know, the kind of dining place with quirky pieces in open cupboards, designed like a 70’s diner with some modern touches here and there.  Vintage frames adorned one side of the wall and chairs were old school designed too.

The Menu was mostly comprised of finger food dishes however their serving size were already good for sharing. We shared our orders across the whole table with everyone. We had a taste of their Taquitos (Mini tacos stuffed with onions, lettuce, ground pork, cheese and meat sauce) , we also had their  Bacon and Chili Cheese Fries (Fattening I know!)  but it was really good! 😀  We also had their Caesar salad which we divided amongst the group of course and some club house sandwiches with bacon, chicken, egg and some good old tomatoes. We had their double chocolate milkshake since most of us loved chocolates along with a  watermelon fruit shake for Pia.

We also had some spaghetti as our Main Dish and some Carbonara as another Main order. The food was okay and quite heavy to digest. (Too much carbohydrates for one day!)   We were filled to the brim since their serving sizes were really big and the place was really cool, classy and cozy. The cost of the food was a bit pricey for finger food dishes and afternoon meals however the ambiance and the rustic feel of the pace made up for it in my opinion. Depends on what your intent on in going to this joint 🙂 Definitely a good place to  just chill out and share stories with your friends.
