Post Workout Eatout: Pastaholics

After running with a friend last time, we we were thinking of a place to dine and chill. Of course, we wanted a place which offers healthy dishes for (feeling) healthy people like us. My friend suggested Pastaholics, and having heard about the resto for a while, I of course did not argue. 
The funny thing is, we’ve been living in Fairview for a while now and I haven’t tried this resto -which is just a walking distance from where we used to live!

Situated along Dahlia Street, Fairview, Pastaholics is a small restaurant where people go to eat good food and chill. Pasta is one of their specialties (hence the name), but they also serve other salad, steak, pizza, rice meals and burger, too. 

Cute, cozy tables and chairs.

Since my friend and I just came from a run, and it was 7:00 in the evening when we came, we went with the healthy option.

Sorry I didn’t get a better picture of the menu!
My order: Grilled Chicken Breast in Herb Pesto Sauce, with Veggies
My friend’s order: Grilled Chicken Breast Fillet in House Steak Marinade, with Mashed Potato

People also give reviews about their drinks (especially La Bella). Sadly, when we went there, they were out of the good drinks. They only had the Lychee drink. I asked if it was natural, they said it was powdered, so we just got water.

When we got there, there weren’t a lot of people yet. After 15 minutes, the seats and tables were full. There was just one server so she was coming back and forth the kitchen getting and giving the orders. When we needed water refill, we couldn’t locate the server. I even knocked on the kitchen to look for her. The place was small so that’s probably why there was just one server, but I think they could have done better by having the server visible at all times. Or maybe a bell at the counter would work to get attention. 🙂 

All in all, it was a good experience.. And I would recommend the place to you. Food’s tasty and healthy. It’s also a good place to celebrate events, too, since it’s cozy. It feels homey.

    Üprint by Reggie: Your One-Stop Shop for Your Printing Needs

    I love hosting events. When I was younger, I hosted events for fun and for well..money. Teehee. I love planning.. Doing details and stuff. It is a venue for me to exercise my oc-ness, if you know what I mean. 😀

    Last December, my family hosted our annual family reunion. Of course we had to do the brainstorming before the event. It was fun, a little stressful, but I’d like to believe it was a success. 

    Part of the planning was thinking of a souvenir. We have to have something to remember the event. It was a family reunion, after all. 

    I came accross Üprint by Reggie while looking for ref magnets on instagram for a friend. Her friend was getting married and they were specifically looking for ref magnets as giveaways. I inquired and got the answers that I needed, and reported back to my friend. 

    Then my niece celebrated her birthday last year. Being the bibo kid that I am, I told my sister-in-law about the shop and she liked the idea of giving ref magnets as giveaways. She ordered from the shop and I was told they had a smooth transaction.

    Then came the reunion. It was my turn to think of a giveaway. Because my sis in law didn’t have a problem ordering from them, I suggested ref magnets to my sibs and they went for it. 🙂 

    Ref magnets start at 15php, individually packed with resealable plastic and paper backing. If with pillow box and or  accents, cost would be 25-30php.

    Üprint by Reggie respects your own creativity and design.
    Yep. I am proud to be a Dayrit!

    The only problem that we had was the holiday rush. I ordered the magnets last December (our reunion was Dec 30th) so it was a really busy month. I kind of gave them short notice.. Like I only sent them the design days before the reunion. Also, we mostly communicated through facebook messenger and I think it would have been better if we talked through sms instead because sometimes she wasn’t online when I was, and vice versa. Aside from that, finding a courier was a problem, too. Using LBC or other trusted couriers will not guarantee getting the products on time. Thankfully, there is an  express service such as Grab Express. We went with it, as suggested by Üprint. We paid 219php for the delivery fee.

    I can recommend getting them as a supplier because they were easy to talk to. They didn’t even put “rush fee” and they happily accepted my order even if I gave them such short notice.

    Aside from ref magnets, Üprint by Reggie also make customized mugs, business cards, notepads – basically anything with prints.
