For those of you who are uninformed (like I was) eatigo is a service (I’ve only tested mobile) that lets you reserve at restaurants and etc – sometimes with awesome discounts as much as 50%!
I first heard about it in a Facebook video (that I wish I can recall where, I’m really trying hard to recall what video was that). At the time I was hoping we had something here in Philippines – little did I know, because it’s been here for awhile.
So, as soon as I did learn that I decided to give it a try and because I’ve been craving for Banh Mi for awhile now (blame those Buzzfeed challenge/taste tests videos!) I made a reservation at Banh Mi Kitchen at SM Megamall last September 2, 2017 that I booked for September 9, 2017 (because Mr. Q had so many other appointments, pfft!)
Anyway, we arrived there 30 mins earlier – but since it’s not peak time, not much people were around. I went on ahead to the counter and said I reserved through eatigo. Just like that, and the staff asked me my name and also looked at my screenshot of my reservation.
On Banh Mi Kitchen’s food:
Bánh mì is the Vietnamese word for bread. Bread, or more specifically the baguette, was introduced by the French during the colonial period in Vietnam. (wikipedia)
It was so delicious, not to mention (but mentioning, lol) that it’s healthy. If you get to reserve the with eatigo plus get the 50% discount, it’s a win-win because the bread is double the size of your regular sandwich and the fillings (I chose the one with crab sticks) were a lot!
Needless to say, we were able to stay energetic and full until the evening without getting extra snacks like we usually do.
Unfortunately because I was already too hungry (and was so excited) I ate it all and was only able to take this picture with my nendo Shiro >w<
I say to Banh Mi and eatigo…
“Where have you been all my life?!!!…”
So until my next reservation with eatigo! I’ll share it on a post again here :)
