It all started last Sunday while hearing mass. The priest was going about his homily when I look up and see this FLAPJACKS poster hanging from a lamp post. I was already hungry, and that poster made me hungrier.
Right after the mass, I dragged Mom to the said restaurant which seemed to be God's gift to my hungry stomach. Mom's very picky with her food, she likes the very basic stuff and isn't very much into the fancy shmancy ones. She doesn't eat American, Greek, and other food which has too much in them. But when we saw the menu and the Vigan Longganisa, I knew it was game on!
I loved the interior's cool colors. It was soothing to the eyes. And like any typical American diner, it has the usual graffitti on the walls. We sat on the couch and it was really comfortable. And a cool plus was WIFI!
And don't make a fuss out of this. But when I used their banyo, I liked it a lot! It was ORANGE - my fave color! And it was clean, like you could lick off the sink or something. Restaurants with well-maintained restrooms should be given two-thumbs up!
Anyway on to the food. Mom ordered the Vigan Longganisa. She was particularly excited about this because she hasn't had longganisa in a long time.
It looked really good. But you see, here's the problem when you know a certain food's authentic taste. Remember my blog about the bagnet? It's all about being ILOKANO! We get Vigan Longganisa straight from the makers way up north. So we know it's the real deal even when you blindfold us.
Mind you, it is longganisa, just not from Vigan. There's no salty twang to it. No oil which makes it tastier. It's a bit disappointing. Good thing Mom was really hungry so she ate the entire plate. She told me if she weren't THAT hungry she won't even touch it.
On the other side of the table, there I was enjoying and having fun with my super Cheesy Mushroom Burger! It reminded me of the Mushroom Burger of Burger King. I loved it because the juices were dripping off the sides, and it was (sorry to steal KFC's tagline and for my lack of originality) finger-licking good! :D I loved the cheese!!!!! The fries with the Heinz ketchup was just a bonus to this meal! Loved, loved, loved this!
I'd give this a 6 out of 10. Food-wise we did encounter some slight problems, but ambiance-wise it was relaxed. :) But that burger sure was memorable, if I were to come back to Flapjacks, I'd definitely be having that again! :)
