Just last week, our tradition of holding an annual Christmas dinner was held in GRINGO in Megamall. I first came across the restaurant when I was invited to attend the opening of Tokyo Bubble Tea x Gringo in Cagayan De Oro a few months ago and I’ve been hooked since then! :) Every time I would think of comfort food, their nachos, spicy chicken and ribs would come to mind! They first opened in April 2016 and have rapidly expanded since. They have now 9 branches around the Philippines and their next opening would be in Greenhills. Even just being in the food industry for a year, they have made a name for themselves for being the go to place for chicken and ribs as well as other Latin-Mexican dishes. What started out as a frustration to be a chef by the owner turned into an all-day restaurant and even a go-to-place at night for people to have a few drinks to go with with the amazing food they serve! They just recently launch Steak Fajitas, a USDA beef served with mixed vegetables, tortilla wrap and 3 kinds of Fajitas sauce :) Can’t wait to try it on my next visit!
Whenever I’m asked what’s the best thing about my job, I always answer that it’s the people I meet along the way. Never in my wildest dreams that I ever thought V SWEETIES would grow as big as this. What started out as a Christmas dinner of less than 10, 2 years ago, that grew to 25 last year and now we’re almost 70. There have been alot of times where I would feel that maybe what I’m doing might not be meant for me anymore but seeing all the faces during our Christmas dinner last week made me realize that I am where I am meant to be. They say that you need perseverance and hard work to make your dreams come true and I do agree but my equation is a little bit more special because it’s also because of each and everyone of my readers that all my dreams came true :)
A big thank you to Eloisa, Jullia and Avy for arranging everything, to GRINGO for providing the food and venue and to our other sponsors, SMART, BELO MEDICAL GROUP and CREAMSILK for providing the giveaways :) Till the next year’s Christmas dinner! Join us? :)
