Dine 'n Dash ~ Serving the best burgers in town!

Welcome to DINE 'n DASH.

The restaurant's name sounds familiar right? 

Well, that is because, the inspirations for this American styled diner came from the game Diner Dash

I so love that game ~ I am proud of good old Flo's determination in leaving the corporate world to put up her own business. 

This diner concept is the brainchild of a husband and wife tandem, Chef June Go and his wife Cynthia.   Chef June is the star of the kitchen, while Ms. Cynthia hands-on manages dining and marketing.

Hubby and I experienced their hospitality first hand, when Dine 'n Dash graciously co-sponsored with Bagnetified SM City Taytay Branch, SM City Taytay  ~ The 1st Rizal Blogger Network Photography Workshop by the photographer genius, Mr. Dante Ward of The House of Wards.

We were able to put to test, what we have learned in the workshop, taking photos of Dine 'n Dash delicious spectacle of menu.

We were served a selection of gourmet burgers, delectable pasta, really chicken wings and fish.

(Texas Buffalo ~ P119) 
Chicken breast fillet dipped in
buffalo sauce topped with blue cheese sauce.

If you are not into beef patties, this is a perfect choice for you.  Chicken is chunky and tender.  Hubby particularly loved the mix  of buffalo sauce and blue cheese.

(Fantastic 4 Cheese ~ P179)

Cheese lovers need not fret, since they have a special menu made just for you :P

Pure beef patty topped with your favorite
mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan and blue cheese.

Don't forget the chicken wings in you tab ~ delicious and yummy!

 (Classic and Barbeque Chicken Wings ~ Twin size 5-7 pieces with a choice of dip:P179 / Party size: 8-12 pieces with 2 dips: P279)
Dip choices: Chipotle Mayo, Aioli, Blue Cheese and Honey Mustard.  My favorite is the Aioli, which was perfect with their fish dish too.
Classic Chicken Wings

Barbeque Chicken Wings

Big Fish
Big fish indeed.  The crust slightly crunchy, while the meat was juicy ~ cooked just right.

Chicken Aglio Olio  ~ Solo: P129 / For Sharing: P209

 This was a tad spicy for me, but hubby finished this plate clean.

Seafood Blue Cheese ~ Solo: P159 / For Sharing: P249

Another must order is the seafood pasta. I can dine here daily for this meal alone :P. The clams, shrimp and squid deliciously blended with the sauce.

  • The place is clean and new.  Ambiance is fresh and modern with an American Diner feel.

  • Staff are attentive and courteous.
  • Food is great ~ A+ burgers, really savory chicken wings and pasta at really affordable prices. 
  • I recommend this place for families and barkadas looking for a place to relax while enjoying a hearty meal.

Two very satisfied customers.
Of course, we will be back and next time we are bringing the kids along.

King Bee - Chinese Food invades SM Center Angono

One of my top of mind Chinese Restaurant, serving authentic Chinese cuisine is King Bee.   My family and I are frequent visitors at the Sta. Rosa Branch. We don't mind the never ending queues of guests, just for a taste of our favorite siomai and hacao. 

And so when I heard they finally opened a branch, just  a stone throw away my doorstep (okay, okay, about a kilometer away), I was honestly elated (mamaspeaks' translation: all of sudden hungry).

I felt so lucky to have been invited to it's "Rizal Media and Blogger Friends day".  I was certain, it was going to be a FULL and FILLING day (as in literally)! 

(The mandatory pose, with King Bee himself :P)

King Bee - Chinese Restaurant at SM Center Angono is the latest of the Kind Bee branches to open.  It is located at 2nd floor of SM Center Angono and occupies a huge space enough to seat 150-180 guests.  The kitchen is open and visible through a glass window ~ so you are sure orders are prepared fresh and clean. 


We were served with some of the restaurant's specialty dishes, starting with my favorite ~ dimsum.

We had dimsum galore!
The Chicken Feet (P80) was a favorite with our male blogger friends.  Not my taste though.
My favorite dimsum ever, ANG "hacao" bow (P150)
Pork Siomai (P100) was equally delicious.
If you can't decide which dish to choose, order dimsum, you can never go wrong.

Other dishes served us, included:

Deep Fried Squid with Salt and Pepper (P280)
The squid was soft and easy on the bite, with just the right amount of spiciness from the pepper and the chilly.
King Bee Chicken (Half - P250 / Whole- P520). I had a bite or two of King Bee's chicken, but I am not a chicken fan so I moved immediately to the next  dish.
Pancit Canton (P230) for long life.  This pancit has sauce, which makes it a perfect pancit "pang-ulam".
Sliced Beef with Broccoli (P300)
The beef was tender and juicy as opposed to the crunchy broccoli. I love broccoli, so most of these greenies went straight to my plate (ssshh!)
The Sweet and Sour Pork (P280) was sweet and bit tangy. 
I liked this one too, but not as much as I did my dimsum :P
The ever staple order ~ Yangchow fried rice (P220).

We finished our meal with an Almond Jelly and Lychee (P70).
 It was very good as it washed off the remaining chili off  my tongue.
