I realized that on several occasions this past month, we’ve indulged in late night snacking a tad too much. While this satisfied our always-hungry bellies, it also increased our waistlines. Sigh.
Tim Ho Wan
Did you know that the Tim Ho Wan branch in Uptown Mall is open until 3AM?!? Yes, siree! I think it’s probably because of it’s location being a stone’s throw away from well-know clubs like Valkyrie and Palace Pool Club. I honestly think it’s a good thing… because you never know when you get a sudden craving for their baked buns!
The menu at this time though had a shorter selection as it was their Supper Menu and not their regular one, but it still had a good selection. I treated myself to a congee, and there’s nothing like a warm bowl of congee late at night to fill-up my tummy late at night.
My observation with SweetX is that their burgers are not consistent. There were times that I really had an awesome Steamed Burger, but this time around, it was a bit overcooked and dry. The wings on the other had is another story. I always LOVE their wings. Crispy, juicy and full of flavor and my favorite is their Sriracha Lime wings.
I don’t know why I never heard of Uncle Moe’s before, but I will not dwell on that fact anymore because the important thing is, I now know it’s there!
It was easy for me to like Uncle Moe’s because it exceeded any expectation I had of it. First, it offered good tasting middle-eastern cuisine and second, it was relatively cheap. It actually brought me back to my younger years when I would have Mr. Kebab (it was still called Persia Grill back then) to end an evening of drinking and partying.
This was their Special Beef Shawarma. For Php195.00, I had high hopes but when I saw it, I was initially disappointed. Primarily because of the size. Thankfully its taste compensated for its lack of girth. I wouldn’t mind ordering this again IF only it was bigger.
The Kofta Balls came highly recommended by several people close to me. So I could not wait to go back and try it. Unfortunately, I was not a fan. I didn’t really like the tomato sauce smothering the cheese-filled meatballs. It wasn’t a bad dish, it just wasn’t my favorite.
October brings in the season of watching what I eat. While I doubt I will be diligent in avoiding late night snacking, I’m pretty sure it will be less of an occurrence.
