I'm currently organising my photo albums, and I found these pictures of stuff I've eaten since the beginning of the year. Again: No, I do not photograph everything that I put in my mouth. Just some.
Anyway, here are the Oldies But Goodies:
|Eggs Benedict and coconut-pineapple slush at Lemoni Café, Boracay. A perfect way to start the day at the beach. 5/5|
|Dulcinea's chocolate eclair. So terrible, I can hardly find the words. Dry, tasteless crap. 0/5|
|Maki-mi at Mañosa, Banawe Street in Quezon City. Slightly less yummy than the original in Chinatown. 4/5|
|C2 Kulinarya's crispy kare-kare. Says "must-try" on their menu. The crispy pata was superb, but the peanut sauce needs a little tweaking. 4/5 |
|The classic Razon's halo-halo. Some things should never be messed with. Forever and ever, amen. 5/5|
|Pancit luglug, also from Razon's. There are better ones out there, but you can really feel the love that they put into this. 4/5|
|Pork chop rice at Tasty Dumplings. So good! But should be eaten on site, so that it's hot, fresh and you have all the sauces in front of you. 5/5|
And then there's the New Stuff. "New" in the sense that I'd never had the chance to try them before, even though they've been around for some time.
|Wagyu steak at Melo's. The best steak I've had this year. Go and order the Grade 6 rib-eye. Do it now! 5/5|
|Beef gyuudon (that's how they spell it) at Bubble Tea, The Block, Quezon City. Not bad, but not great. 3/5|
|UCC's chocolate thing and Blue Mountain whatsit. Absolutely cannot compare to the tiramisu and sumiyaki coffee. 3/5|
|Pistachio ice cream sans rival at FIC, Boracay. It was OK, but I really prefer just a scoop of ice cream. 3/5 |
|The original panizza at C'Italian, Pampanga. Cost a bloody fortune, but the imitations out there are all so horrible. 4/5|
|Pomelo salad from Steph's caterer. The best Thai salad I've had since the last time I was in Bangkok. I took some home and ate it again the next morning. 5/5|
|Bagoong Club's pinakbet paté with eggplant chips. The fried eggplant didn't get soggy even after sitting in the AC. The paté was unremarkable, but went well with the chips. 4/5 |
|Chef Rick's cheese bread at 22 Prime, Discovery Suites. Sadly, this was the only good thing we ate there. 22 Prime has really gone downhill. What's going on? 3/5 |
|Pitaw from Casa Carmela, Bacolod City. It's actually tiny, tiny birds cooked adobo-style. Convenient and delicious! Should buy more of this, in case of food emergencies. 4/5|
|Tofu salad at Urameshi-ya, Little Tokyo, Makati City. I don't know what the hell they put in it, but it was so f*@#ing good! 5/5|
|Ching Cruz's sole Meuniere. Like everything else we ate at Terrace At The 5th, Greenbelt 5, Makati City, this was just so-so. 3/5|
Whew, now I can transfer 12 gigabytes of pictures to my "Sorted" folder and forget about them. Wiwit! Have a nice Sunday, y'all.
