My very first eats-a-date event this year is with Full Belly, with my friend, Melisa of Seafarer's Wife Diaries, without our kids. It was a great "me time" for us, but at the same time, mothers just can't go out anymore without thinking about their kids. So we thought of them every time, wondered how they were and hoped they're all fine! :)
Full Belly is a great resto to start the year with. And because of this, I am really thankful to be able to visit this restaurant. I didn't regret going here and there was just one thing I wished when there - I wished Nate was with me at that time, but he was sleeping when I was prepping to leave, plus, I was already late, so I had to hurry and go! haha.
Before I move on, let me tell you one thing, this restaurant for me is highly recommended! Oh, I would love to take Dane and Nate here! We will certainly come back! I'm gonna take Dane here when he comes home, this place is just perfect for families and a good place to satisfy your appetite!
Here's a few of my personal reasons why you should pay this place a visit:
1. Because it's "Full Belly"
I remember, my sister asked me (after she learned about the restaurant's name): "so, did they make your belly full?" haha! If you don't know the resto's background, you'd really think that's what the name means, but no, it means serving all kinds of belly in one roof, but I think they can claim both, because they offer all kinds of belly dishes, and they can literally make your belly full!
The concept of Full Belly Craft Kitchen is to be a casual dining restaurant that serves different kinds of belly in different cooking methods: grill, roast, braise, to name a few. They believe that belly is the most fave part of meat (of course it is!).
2. Quiet and welcomy place
The interior designs have cooking pots and pans hanging on their wall, and I think it's really cool and brilliant to use those as designs. Just by the look at that, you can already tell you're at a place that cooks good food.
The color of the interior is a combination of white & brown. When we were there, I could still have the holiday feel because of their holiday designs - can't blame them, we went there 4 days after new year.

3. Thumbs up menu
And for the most awaited part, here's the list of the foods they serve. I have no complains! Although each of us have different taste buds, so what's good for me isn't good for everybody. But since this is my blog and my opinion, there's nothing you can do! hahaha!
|Broccoli with mushroom. (sorry I don't think I've tasted this one)|
|Mashed Potato - at first I really thought this is omelet because it looks like one but it's mashed potato.|
|Full Belly Beef Roast (Php 655) - slow roasted belly of beef with Au jus, assortment of veggies and potato puree. The meat is tender and the taste is good. I wanted more rice! haha!|
4. Accessible location
Of all, the restaurants I've been, this is by far, the most accessible place I've been, it's just right beside the GMA station, many artists would even dine there of have a taping, that's how near it is. We didn't have a difficult time finding the place. One thing tho, it seems that the parking area is small. Don't know where others can park, I don't own a car so I don't worry but that's just something to keep in mind, I guess. :)
Full Belly Craft Kitchen is located in:
5 Sergeant Esguerra Ave, Quezon City

When I come back here, the very first thing I'm gonna order is Bagnet ni Kenneth and the cheesecake! Delish!
