Eat Out Manila Bloggers Meet + Say it with Dinner Valentine's Promo!

Last week (Jan 29), Eat Out Manila hosted a bloggers meet at Chihuahua Mexican Grill & Margarita Bar (BGC), where we learned first hand info about the said app, live and straight from the founder itself, Mr. Inaki Lamata.

i wasn't entirely new to the app, as i was first introduced to it during Blogapalooza 2014, but back then i never really took too much notice haha.

simply put, Eat Out Manila is an online restaurant reservation app! it's available on iOS and now Android, and also has a web app. very accessible!

as per any reservation system, it effectively eliminates waiting time and allows you to confirm or cancel your appointments instantly. you'll never have to experience the frustrating process of reserving via phone call, because for all you know, the person on the other line might misspell your name, be rude, or worse - forget to block your reservation at all!

Eat Out Manila is designed to give us the most convenient way to reserve tables AT NO COST.

What more...

- you may search hundreds of restos by name, cuisine, location, or even proximity!
- you get access to menus and chef's recommendations
- you're eligible to join EoM's partner restaurant promos!
- [COMING SOON] they're cooking a partnership with Uber that will give diners a more delightful experience!

The Meet

w/ Ross and Alex
it was my first time to attend a blogger event alone so i was afraid i wouldn't uhm behave blogger-like. lol ano raw. friendly, ganon! i was excited to make friends though but really i was afraid to be surrounded by people who are already familiar with each other and thus have no room for a new friend! chooos. anyway. i joined tables with bloggers Ross (of Wazzup Pilipinas) and Alex (of The Technoclast) and was delighted naman cos yeyy new friends!

haha part of the program was to create a short skit illustrating a scenario where the Eat Out Manila app can be used. we were grouped by tables, and well, WE WON! wow. took home a powerbank each yeheyyy! srsly i was so happy cos i've always wanted a powerbank hihi

The Food
oh, Chihuahua's margaritas are awesome! srslyyyy! i love mexican food so i enjoyed everything they served, from the tacos, burritos, and quesadillas! <3 they have a salsa bar if you're craving for more sauce... and oh, look at that wall of sauce! amazeballs! >8D

the walls of the place are plastered with photos of the many moments the restaurant has captured! it's a freakin lot it even reached the bathroom! hahaha

every thursday night they hold a salsa party (uhh, no you don't get to throw sauce on each other's clothes) at the BGC branch, where a dance instructor teaches salsa and diners dance aaaaaaaaall night long! it's a pretty unique gig for a mexican bar you know! it's really a great place to chill out! kwentuhan lang over margaritas and nachos is enough!
