My Sizzling Lunch at Bene after nearly 20 years!

One of our batchmate went home from US and enrolled her kid in Bene, now San Beda Alabang.  She posted her #trending Sizzling meal on Facebook that made everyone craving for it.  Went back to Bene with my batchmate, Abbie.  We arrived early, the canteen was still empty.

We went straight to the sizzling station.  I don't recall having these display back in the day.

With so much excitement, we ordered for Sizzling Pork Tenderloin. In the early 90s, this costs 35 pesos.  Now, it's 75 pesos per order.

 On the same counter are the BBQs. I remember that this was paired before with Java rice.  Looked yummy! I ordered one.

This was my Sizzling Plate with BBQ and extra gravy (for 10 pesos)! After nearly 20 years, the taste didn't change! We were so satisfied. Ang sarap-sarap!!! 

Then the kids arrived.  It was their integration day so they weren't in uniform. Well, we thought we blended well with them. Hahaha!

On the way out, we saw the pasta station.  Lasagna was also a big hit back then.  I need to try it when I go back.

The Boiling Seafood - Alabang Town Center

We had lunch at The Boiling Seafood after our Sunday Mass. Luckily, the place was not full, we easily got a table when we arrived.

There are 3 simple steps to order.  First, pick the seafood (prices are by the gram).  Then choose the sauce and the intensity of the spice.  There are also ready dishes in their menu if you are not in the mood choosing your seafood combination.

We ordered Spaghetti and Fried Chicken for the kids. I must say that I loved the Spaghetti, the sauce was similar to Pancake House! We also ordered Calamari together with the 3 other different seafood dishes.

 They serve their seafood in a transparent plastic bag. We ordered different seafood in different sauces.

Clams in Butter Garlic Sauce
Shrimps in Sweet Chili Garlic Sauce
Mussels in Cajun Sauce
 They provided a bucket for the shells.

We will definitely go back for some seafood fix. Nice addition to Alabang Town's dining choices.
