Playing Favorites: Mexicali

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Mexicali is one of my favorite affordable restaurants in Manila. I’ve been here so many times already but I feel like this is only the first time I saw their logo. Perhaps its because I don’t really browse their menu and instead choose to pick what I’m having via the massive board above the cashier? I could be wrong though. Tell me, is this really their logo? Or is this a new one? 😀

Stackin’ Up the Pounds at Stackers

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

BonChon was what I wanted for dinner, but Alabang Town Center was insanely packed that night so we ended up at Stackers. The restaurant looked unfamiliar to us until we saw the menu. Apparently, we’ve been here before–only it was in Metrowalk. Funny how the Stackers in ATC has a far more superior ambiance than the one in Metrowalk. 😀

Sinangag Express Newbie No More

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

I know Sinangag Express has been a favorite of many men. I guess it’s their, hmm, highly-appealing name (sEx or S.E.X. or however you guys want to abbreviate it) that made it so popular. But even though I practically grew up hearing about this curious little chain, I’ve never had the chance to actually eat here–until my workmates and I decided to venture out and drive from Valero (where our office building is) to the Sinangag Express branch in Malugay Street.


Who Doesn’t Love Army Navy?

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

It’s funny that we decided to eat at Army Navy for our last dinner in Tagaytay when there are tons of Army Navy restaurants back in Manila.

For the record though, it wasn’t our first choice. We were already lined up outside Buon Giorno, which was literally filled to the brim, when the group agreed to move elsewhere. 🙂


Sumo Dog: Sausages With A Japanese Twist

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Cute logo! 🙂

The Galleon Food Avenue is where I usually go to buy lunch. I have seen a number of food stalls come and go because I can only imagine how expensive it must be to run a small business in a building–in Makati, especially!

I don’t need to see how much it really costs to rent a spot to know that. Green Tomato, for example, was a favorite of mine. I thought they were doing good financially but its stall in The Galleon disappeared, leaving my pasta cravings all weepy and sad. I can’t be sure though if it was indeed financial strains that drove them away.

There’s this fairly new food stall in The Galleon called Sumo Dog, a “hotdog” joint sans the hotdog. They serve sausages with a Japanese twist. I’ve never seen someone actually buying something from them so I got curious. I wondered if they were serving overpriced or just plain bad meals. I gave the food stall a chance one Monday afternoon and tried something off their menu.
