What’s for lunch?! Zubuchon!

Finally, ZU-BU-CHON! My prior encounters with Zubuchon were courtesy of frozen (lechon) pasalubong from Cebu. So it was pretty exciting for me to finally try the real thing. I hardly looked at the menu because I personally went there for one thing and one thing only. The Lechon! Our group got 2 varieties of lechon  but…

What’s For Lunch?  Pink’s Hotdogs!

Long-overdue lunch at Pink’s with the BAe’s. I was torn between the Tokyo Dog and the Breakfast All Day Dog.  The former won and it was an excellent choice!  The Tokyo Dog which was nothing short of delicious was topped with unagi sauce, coleslaw, tempura flakes, wasabi mayo, togarashi.  Someone commented that it looked like a garden….

What’s For Lunch? FAT Burger

So my officemate, CA has been talking about FAT Burger for awhile now and we finally made it there.  It was an impromptu decision as we were supposed to only eat at Burger King. I ordered the Western Bacon BBQ Fatburger with Cheese with a side of skinny fries and onion rings.  I really loved the…

The birthday boy’s birthday wish: CRABS

Birthday Meals.  I’m pretty sure you all have your favorite things to eat on your birthday’s.  For JodiesDaddy, it would rotate among 3:  Shabu-shabu (or hotpot), steak or CRABS.  For this year’s celebration, his wish was CRABS.  Not just any ordinary crabs, but the Crab Sotanghon from Hong Kong Master Cook in Seaside Market along Macapagal Avenue….

My attempt at eating healthy

About 2 weeks ago, I had the worst health scare.  You see, I am obese.  I’m not denying it.  I’ve faced that fact for the past several years.  Since I’ve transferred jobs almost 3 years ago, I’ve become even more unhealthy and I attribute that to stress.  Not making excuses.  Testament to that is my…

What’s For Lunch? Duck & Buvette!

One fine, boring Friday, CA and I were thinking of where and what to eat for lunch.  I just wanted to get out of the office, and I personally did not want to make the decision.  Since CA needed to buy a Valentine’s gift for his girlfriend and I had time to kill, we found ourselves…

What’s For Lunch? Manam Part 2

I couldn’t resist.  I went to Manam again today.  Yes, I was THAT happy with my meal yesterday, and I couldn’t really wait for a “next time” any longer.  So, I dragged Jodie with me and even planned ahead of time what we were going to have:  House Crispy Sisig, the Caramelized Patis Wings and of course, the Sinigang…

This is an Okonomiyaki. Also known as a Japanese pancake or Japanese pizza. For some strange reason, I am always drawn to it when I see it in a menu with the expectation that it will be crispy on the outside (something like a pajeon). But time and time again, I end up a little…

a Wildflour Breakfast

Gah!  This Wildflour Breakfast left me speechless, thanks to the superb Bacon Steak.  And the crispy potatoes.  YUM!  This is good enough to share and is available mornings until afternoons.  You won’t see it in their dinner menu that’s for sure.

Have you heard of CoW Dadi?

I loved my meal at CoW Dadi! Perfectly cooked and seasoned grilled steak, beef sinigang and rice. And I only paid about Php330 for all of it. It might not be for everyone though because it exudes a vibe of a sosy carinderia (no aircon, self-service, possibly subpar sanitary standards). But if you don’t mind…

Super Chashu!!

An off-the-menu ramen from Mendokoro Ramenba aptly called Super Chashu. The chashu was probably 3-4inches in diameter and half an inch thick!
