Dinner with My Girls at Nolita

It was a great year for me and my friends who graduated college and passed the board exam this year. Some of us looked for jobs right after these events, and some chose to take it one step at a time to savor the moment of being an unemployed, yet licensed engineer.

Months have passed and chances of hanging out with my friends become smaller. Days have gone by, and this one sweet night was the time we finally had a chance to meet each other. Angge and Reanne were my close girlfriends during college days, they were also my block mates. Five years ago, we were just normal college engineering students with a heavy drawing set and some books; and now, we are already Electronics Engineer and already establishing our chosen career.

Fast forwarding to the get together, we had a hard time picking the restaurant of the night where we can chit chat and eat. Angge wanted Pesto, and we wanted less carb treats (diet, yeah right). Nolita was a great choice for the night. One thing I noticed that we didn't bother about the price of the food, unlike when we're just students. Yeah, perks of being working girls.
Small place with a self-service environment. Big pizzas welcomed me as I place our order. Customer start to come in after I placed my order. Nolita is indeed a hit here! Now, I wonder how good their food is? ;)
Look how cool their 'number' is! I'm not sure how they'll differentiate one from another.

Mixed Green Salad ( P150.00 ) - Fresh vegetables to start off dinner! I like the simplicity of this salad, and the lightness of the dressing. 
Black Olive Pomodoro ( P290.00 ) - It was OK for us. What I really like here was the hint of zesty flavor of fresh tomato chunks and tomato paste. 
Pesto Pasta Al Telefono ( P310.00 ) - Pesto pasta dishes are my favorite. I love the generous serving of the pesto sauce! Chunks of mozzarella cheese were also visible on this dish. Great pasta!
Honey Garlic Buffalo Wings ( P350.00 ) - I was really craving for buffalo wings and they agreed when I suggested this dish, sweet! Light-flavored buffalo wings with perfect blending of spices. 
Vegetable sticks were also served on the side to munch in that can help neutralize the taste buds in between every wing. A dip on the bleu cheese creates a different kick; whether you dip it or not, it tastes great!
Water, anyone? :)
Hello there, Angge! You're getting fat!
Hello there Reanne! :)
Now, who needs diet? :)) It was totally a great night for us girls. Next time, I want to try their pizzas and burgers! It really looks good and almost every customer have that on their table! ;)

...and even as we leave our table, the place was still full of customers dining in! Now I know why people choose this place! ;)
