Bloggers Buffet at Carol’s Texan 5

Posted on

I was one of the lucky bloggers who got invited to attend the first ever Bloggers Buffet held last June 23, 2011 at Carol’s Texan 5. Despite the rain storm Falcon brought that night, the event pushed through. Again, I am a newbie in the blogging world and this is officially my first event as a blogger. It was really a fun experience to meet fellow bloggers. Here’s a look at what transpired that evening.

what greeted me

Before the event started I was eager enough to take pictures & look around. This menu stand greeted me as I entered the function room of  Carol’s Texan 5, clearly I was starting to get hungry just by looking.

The Wanted wall

While other bloggers enjoyed having their pictures taken at “The Wanted” wall.

pretty personalized & motivating

A series of framed motivational words & personalized drawings can be found displayed at the function room. This gives a homey feel of the place despite its cowboy theme.

The dishes are all originally crafted by Carol herself. Check out how affordable the prices are as well.

 Meet Tristan Mirasol the host of the event and the founder of Ten Minutes, Tops! and Club Travel NOW! (the organizers of the event). The program started off with a getting-to-know portion, wherein all bloggers get to say a little something about themselves followed by a meet and greet with Carol herself.

Carol started cooking for her brother and family,eventually everyone was raving about her food. This motivated her with the idea of making her dishes available to public. She then started out delivering food to call center companies and with the good feedback from her customers she decided to put up her own restaurant. Now her famous ribs & wings can be enjoyed by everyone.

We belong! We have the same color scheme heehee. Anyway, it was really nice meeting Carol.

3 of the 5 famous dishes

(left to right) Tomato Basil Pasta, Ultimate Texan Ribs and Dynamite Ribs

Tomato Basil Pasta

A flavorful tomato based pasta infused with herbs. Pasta noodles is al dente and amount of sauce is just right.

Ultimate Texan Ribs

This dish is indeed my favorite (as well as the many customers of Carol’s Texan 5). Its super flavorful and the meat is very tender! Unlike other ribs, Carol’s Texan 5’s Ultimate Texan Ribs has bigger slobs one can actually satisfy you. Will definitely come back for this.

Dynamite Wings

For a spicy lover like me anything that spells chili is love. This dish is just that. Crispy fried on the outside, soft meat on the inside. Don’t forget to smother it with its tartar sauce for some awesome goodness.

Goodies

After a sumptuous meal, goody bags & prizes were given away thanks to the sponsors!

 Again, it was a lovely night. I sure had fun! A memorable and fun night, great company and delicious food. What more can you ask for? 🙂

Thanks again Carol’s Texan 5 , Ten Minutes, Tops! and Club Travel NOW!

Being part of a community like Pinoy Bloggers is an exciting endeavor to get to know people & learn new things. It’s only been a year since I started blogging and I think for a newbie, I pretty much have a good number of readers (thank you everyone!)  Anyway, so upon checking the latest happenings from co-bloggers, I’ve recently stumbled a post about Carol’s Texan 5 restaurant being the venue of the event called Bloggers Buffet organized by TenMinutesTops.com and ClubTravelNOW.org.

The first Bloggers Buffet by TenMinutesTops.com in cooperation with ClubTravelNOW.org

I’ve been living in San Juan City for almost 3 years now and I have to admit there are only a few establishments I’ve been to. Take away 9 months of almost 3 years living here, since I was on (almost total) house arrest during my pregnancy. So being flanked by restaurants and establishments that offer good & great deals is always an advantage BUT I haven’t taken advantage of them much. I’ve just started doing so since I’ve started blogging. (I know, opportunities wasted but that’s not gonna happen anymore!)

So upon learning the chance that there will be an event called The 1st Bloggers Buffet at Carol’s Texan 5 on June 23,2011, I immediately got curious & did my research. My, my, oh my! Why haven’t I visited you before Carol’s Texan 5 ? As you all know my readers, I am a HUGE fan of chicken and by chicken I mean any kind of preparation & cooking done to chicken I’ll eat, make that devour! 😉

their menu is indeed mouth-watering and the prices are affordable!

Carol’s Texan 5 offers the best chicken and ribs this side of Manila. Not only do they offer these sumptuous dishes for dine-in but they also deliver! Yes, if you’re too lazy to go out (for someone who lives in the bustling city of San Juan it can sometimes be a hassle to fix up & go out) they deliver! hoooraaay! So I think I can enjoy the Texan Grilled Chicken in my pajamas while being a couch potato from the comfort of my own home! (They deliver in San Juan, Mandaluyong, Ortigas and Pioneer areas for now). Now if you plan to have a party, you can still enjoy Carol’s Texan 5, they have food booths that they can set up in your event (maybe your child’s birthday, baptism, debut, or whatever occasion there is). You can also opt to hold events at Carol’s Texan 5, perfect for all kinds of functions and gatherings. Another good thing about  their service is that they offer kiddie meal sets which is perfect if you plan on celebrating your kid’s birthday in his or her school or even at home or in the office. And lastly, if you’re planning on having an intimate affair but craves for Carol’s Texan 5, then I suggest you order their Party Trays which are suitable for special occasions.

Yes,I seriously wanna be part of this Bloggers Buffet. Aside from meeting new people and learning new things, I’m hoping to meet Carol (the woman behind Carol’s Texan 5) herself. Also, I pretty much am a sucker for American cuisine. Did I mention I love chicken? yes, I do. Oh and of course I wanna be part of this event because it’s always an honor being part of anything that’s a first, right? RIGHT! 😉

Plus, I surely won’t miss this event, it’s only 5 minutes away from my place. Wohoooo! 😉
