Craving for pasta and nachos

It's a great news to hear that banchetto is back on business and now i am planning on visiting them by next week with my partner and will definitely going to look for my favorite food store. I haven't got there name but what i know is that they are the only store who sells this type of food for Php.100.


I really miss this and for Php.100 it's really allot. If you will buy this in a resto it might cost you 200 - 300 pesos. See you soon Banchetto ( nakakaadik!)

Banchetto is back!!!!

Yes, banchetto is back in business and it's still in Ortigas. But it's far from the business center :( .They are now located in MEGATENT besides Renaissance condominium, and they are open every Friday and Saturday. But, i wonder if there new location will be a smashing hit again since it's so far from ortigas center where call center agents works. Will try to visit them next week.
