Quick Eat: Pancake House’s Spicy Chicken with Brown Rice Pilaf

Friday, November 30th, 2012

While I would say that I’m a solid Pancake House fan, I won’t go as far as saying that I know everything in their menu by heart.

That’s why when we dined at their High Street branch last night, I was caught off guard because some items were missing from their menu.

We got confused to the point that I convinced the boyfriend that maybe it was another restaurant that had the Hamburger Steak set — and not Pancake House.

Making Restaurant Hunting Easy: Zomato on iPhone

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012


Everyone feel a bit irked when our friends can’t decide where to eat, and they end up spending thirty minutes to an hour just arguing and going through our choices.

It’s different, but by no means is it new.

Luckily, just about everyone has a smartphone now, and this amazing device has helped millions of foodies across the world. Gaming Realms, the company behind that recently launched Spin Genie, has said that “There were an estimated 1 billion Smartphone users at the end of 2012, representing 17% of total mobile users”, and this figure has continually grown. Studies even show that by 2015, there could be close to 2 billion smartphone users. In the Philippines, with cheaper smartphone lines like MyPhone and Cherry Mobile available, the smartphone penetration rate is expected to hit 50% by 2015.

Buffaloed at Buffalo’s Wings n’ Things

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

I think there’s another buffalo wings place that could give my love for Wingman a run for its money. The name? Buffalo’s Wings n’ Things. Going to work, I always pass by this restaurant in Solaris One–along Dela Rosa in Makati–but never really thought it was special. It was beside Army Navy and you guys know how Army Navy is an automatic choice when you pit it against with another restaurant. 😀
