Last year in December, I was particularly smitten by this voucher in Deal Grocer for a brunch and bellinis set for 2 at Sunshine Kitchen. I haven't been to Sunshine Kitchen, and I've seen reviews that the food are not exactly stellar. However, I wanted to find it out for myself and I think my own Sunshine Kitchen experience is not that bad.
I thought we won't be able to use the voucher since weekends are kind precious to me and Jonjie. And with brunch hour limited to 11 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon, it was a gamble whether my 600-peso voucher will be put to use or not.
Thankfully, yesterday, Sunday, we finally did! A brunch with limitless mimosas was the highlight of our Sunday.
Choose 2 from: Portobello Mushroom Melt, Southern Style Crabcake Benedict or Breakfast Pizza made with bacon and egg.
Choose 2 from: Huevos Rancheros, Truffle Mushroom 2 Egg Omelette or Peach French Toast with Chocolate Caramel Sauce and Creme Anglais.
We chose Portobello Mushroom Melt and the Breakfast Pizza made with bacon and egg plus Truffle Mushroom 2 Egg Omelette and Peach French Toast with Chocolate Caramel Sauce and Creme Anglais. We had the savory and the sweet to fill up our hungry tummies. We also opted for the orange mimosas.
I was surprised at how small the portions were. Well, it was brunch, but Filipino tummies such as ours were definitely not satisfied. But then again, this is one of many food trips that we have charged to experience.
I don't know if this is the case for others, but I always find myself discriminated whenever I use redeem food vouchers. Food vouchers are not exactly cheap, but why I do I get the sense like the quality of the service is brought down a notch lower than usual? Why should the menu be different for customers dining in using their vouchers? Bakit kailangan magiba yung ngiti nung waiter upon learning that I will be redeeming my Deal Grocer voucher instead of ordering regular ala carte dishes from the menu? Am I being too sensitive? Enlighten me :(
