Dayrit’s Through the Years…


Dayrits’ Through the Years…

It was such a week and a “staycation” is the next best thing that we thought of.

What made it more exciting is the place where we are staying surprised me to find out that “Dayrits” is their tenant which cater to all of their guests’ cravings.

Yey, Dayrits! It’s been a while!

Gone are the moments when each time I’ll pass by Magallanes, I would see their restaurant below the fly-over and most of the time I would wish to jump-off the bus and head to Dayrits and devour on their famous roast beef steak.

Some years ago, when I used to work in Makati, Dayrits have been one of those places that has become one of our favorite spot. We hang out there for a hefty lunch or dinner, and young as I was (I am barely 30 years old then), the bosses will treat us there and established it as a habit.

I’ve missed their line-up a lot. There’s tocino with atchara, roast beef and baked potato and even spam steak with pinapple slices on it to sweeten it lightly. I will not forget their gravy, it was a stand-out.

d menu
Over 40 years..

Coming across the current menu, I instantly noticed that there have been some changes over the years.

If some could correct me (as the staff is no longer aware of it, like the skiletti of Shakeys, no one remembers it anymore), the rice that they pair with the roast beef is java rice.

At present, they only serve steamed rice and pineapple rice. Still, we ordered for their famous roast beef and opted for a steamed rice. And for me to gorge on the gravy, I ordered for another beef dish and suggested to Jen that she order the famous roast beef.

Years back, this was a hit!
tapa
Tender & juicy!
d iced tea
Iced tea (home-made too!)

In my humblest opinion, I knew Jen didn’t like it that much, because she mentioned another place where the gravy tastes best. And I understand where she’s coming from.

My foodie buddy!

I was a bit disappointed too, however, it is very slight and I am more excited to have tried it after so many years.

Besides, there are a lot of restaurants nowadays to choose from. And speaking of tenderness, none so far can beat the one I tried from Duck and Buvette which soon I’ll let Jen try.

I must not forget mentioning. Their baked potato topped with bacon bits is still a show-stopper.

d cold cuts
They still have their cold-cuts to go..

When we were trying to figure out where to have our dinner that night, since we are a stone throw away from Aguirre St. of BF Paranaque. We all know that this particular street is a Foodie hub, we opted to dine at Dayrits so we would have more time to relax after and plunge in the pool before calling the weekend off…

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
