Foodie Fridays : Ikabud

This post will feature two of my favorite words.

1) FREE. It’s the word that almost all of us love.

2) FOOD. It’s Foodie Fridays!

Yes, this post is about FREE FOOD! Cool right?! Hehe.

Tuesday last week, we celebrated what our team leader claims to be her 19th birthday at Ikabud, SM City Clark.

This restaurant has been around for quite some time now, but this would just be the second time that I would eat here. See, I don’t usually go to restuarants. Id choose a karinderya over a restaurant in a heartbeat. Now you might be thinking that Im down to earth or something, ahhh, nope. That’s just because, I am kuripot. Lol.

I was one of the first to be there to make reservations, since we were going to be a big group of at least 20 persons.

While they were busy ordering our feast, I was busy with blogger duties. Hehe.

Cool kiddie chair. I tried sitting on it and I actually fit! Way cool! Haha.

Dunno what this is called. Sorry. Lol.

The word rustic comes to mind when one enters Ikabud. Its a lot of wood and bricks. A stark contrast against the mall’s modern design.

The battlefield

We got aquainted with the menu and pretty much ordered what was written on it. Lol.

Zoom required.

While food was being prepared, Retrica and the podstick kept us busy.

Then one by one, pieces of heaven began to arrive. Being the dedicated blogger that I am, I did not let them touch the food until I’ve taken a photo of it. Haha.

Warning. What follows will trigger pangs of hunger. Food Porn Alert!

To wash all that down. 

The food was delicious. Made even better by the fact that it was free. Hehe. I filled my plate with portions of everything, ignored everyone and began to eat. Eat. Eat. By the time I was done I was so full that I suddenly felt sleepy. No wonder I’m getting fat. Hehe.

What better way to stay awake than to start another podstick session. If you haven’t tried taking photos with a podstick yet, you are missing out on a lot of fun! Its quite addicting, obviously. Haha.

This post is about free food. It was. Because while I’m writing it I realized something, Its not just about free food. Its about relaxing after a tiring day at work. Its about making memories, building relationships, strengthening bonds that would soon turn colleagues into good friends.
