My long weekend food trip

My long weekend last year was quite boring. I just went to my hometown in Cebu, watched TV, and then slept for 4 days. But this year, I did something unusual during my long weekend vacay. I went to random places in the Metro Manila, tried some restaurants that I haven’t tried before.

My first stop was Wing Stop, in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. I tried two flavors, the Classic Louisiana Rub and Buttered Lemon Pepper. I loved both! They taste better than Bonchon. The chicken was crispy and both the lemon pepper + louisiana rub flavor is soooo good! I’m want to try their other flavors, but I’m already full. My friends John and Timmy was also with me during my trip to BGC. And oh, don’t forget to check your receipt if you dine at Wingstop, because you can get free 5pcs classic wings on your next visit, if you… just check your receipt! And also, check this page out for other discounts and coupons that you might like (not related to Wingstop, but I just want to share).

Kambingan ni Mang Ben

Kambingan ni Mang Ben
There’s this famous goat meat restaurant in Sauyo, Novaliches QC, but it’s far from where we live. Me, Natasha and Shelly craved for goat meat yesterday and we don’t want to travel to QC due to trafficophobia—the fear of getting stuck in the Metro Manila traffic. If you love goat meat and you’re craving for it and you live in Manila, then there’s a near, recently opened food shop just along M.Naval street in Navotas called Kambingan ni Mang Ben. Kambingan ni Mang Ben is inspired by Kambingan ni Tsong, according to what I heard from someone who loves goat meat. Both cook goat meat the way that you’re taste buds will crave for more.

Hole In The Wall: Ganko Japanese Restaurant

Tonkotu Ramen
You wouldn’t look twice or even notice Ganko, a Japanese eatery along J. Aguilar Ave., when you drive by. I didn’t. Only the boyfriend had been here before and told me that it was a “pretty decent” hole in the wall restaurant. And so we stopped by. 😀

Singapore Snacking: Laksa x Milo Dinosaur

June 22nd, 2014

Laksa

I’m not in Singapore anymore but I was feeling like I was right smack in the city again when a co-worker brought us to Bugis Singaporean Street Food, a small restaurant at the ground floor of her Grand Towers condo. When we arrived, it was mostly occupied by college students. But since I could still pass as a student, I wasn’t too “insecure” to be surrounded by so much youth. LOL.

Into The Noodle Culture at Ramen X

January 31st, 2014

Ramen X

If you frequent Alabang Town Center, you would know about Ramen X, a restaurant that is at the most awkward location. It’s at the mall’s new wing, near the new department store. It’s sandwiched by shops that sell surf gear, hiking essentials, shoes, and whatnot, so you would understand why we’re always amused whenever we pass by this restaurant. Then again, there must be a reason behind this. Right?
