Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!


I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Gastronomy: Classic Savory

My mantra for 2012 is that I am going to be an ULTIMATE FOODIE. Bold and all caps for emphasis. Food never failed to make me happy these days. I love experimenting on new snack ideas and stuff like that. I guess what I'll try to do next is learn how to bake a cake. Hopefully I can make it taste as great as my Mom's. 

To add to my growing passion for food is my boyfriend who just enrolled in a culinary course at The Institute of International Culinary and Hospitality Entrepreneurship (I-CHEF). I'm so happy for him, because he's now beginning to materialize one of his dreams, plus I now have a chef of my own. Aww yeah!

Now in Gastronomy, I'm going to review the home of the original tenderest and juiciest chicken in the Philippines since 1950 -- the Classic Savory (SM Davao branch). My family and I went there last Sunday to celebrate my sister's 19th birthday. This is a blogworthy experience because it's our first try there.


Some old photos of the original branch posted on the wall.
I love that they have a partially open kitchen. I hope they make it full someday.

We ordered their famous Savory Whole Chicken, Sate Miki, Beef Stir Fry with Broccoli, Special Turon, Coffee & Cream Delight and some beverage. I really can't get over the taste of their chicken. It tasted so good, I wanna try having the whole serving for myself alone. Here are the food photos I got.

Savory Whole Chicken

Sate Miki

Beef Stir Fry with Broccoli

Special Turon

Coffee & Cream Delight 

Beef Stir Fry and Broccoli is one of their latest additions to their menu. I like it since I'm a big fan of broccoli. The Special Turon is also a winner. To my readers abroad, "turon" is a Pinoy snack dish made of thinly sliced bananas dusted with brown sugar and rolled in spring roll wrapper and fried (Wikipedia, 2012).

Coffee & Cream Delight is made of coffee gelatin cubes and cream. It tasted like a melted mocha ice cream for me. My sister Mikee enjoyed it, but I didn't. Maybe I just expected something better because of the name. It sounded so delicious and sophisticated, at least for me. But all in all, the food was great there!

I also give two thumbs up to their customer service. We were a bit demanding to the waiters because it was already high noon that time, and we were starving when we arrived from church; but still they attended to us courteously with their mega watt smiles. They were so gracious in considering our every favor.

I hope I get to dine there again as soon as possible. I wasn't too satisfied with the amount of savory chicken I ate. I want more, and with more I mean I want a whole of it all for myself. I'm such a greedy food whore, eh? 'Til the next episode of Gastronomy, buddies. I hope you enjoyed reading this entry. Much love!

I also loved Classic Savory. Tried all three branches at SM Lanang, Abreeza, and SM City Davao. Not the best but fairly good if you want home cooked goodness with your Filipino/Asian dining experience.
