We went to the local restaurant that serves Filippino and Chinese dishes for Lolo's birthday last night.
I had baked macaroni (baked with cheese and tomato sauce this is a local "merianda" dish here).
I shared it with Ruby, who ordered squid, which was very good, and we also had shrimp and rice dishes and a salad.
The "spring rolls" were actually good: with Thai spices in the sauce.
The meal for 5, including one dish that came late and we brought home, came to 30 dollars, which is very expensive for the provinces, but worth it. We only eat out about once a month.
