Peri-Peri Grill House

Test 3

emember college? Fairly young, fairly naive, knees and back that still don’t give out on you, but ultimately — broke.  So it’s natural that any meal above a 100 bucks seemed like a fortune back then.  Although I’m still almost as cheap as I was back in the day, I find myself a lot more willing to splurge the extra ...

JT’s Manukan: The Best Inasal in Manila

Test 4

’m not a big fan of the Inasal Craze in Manila.  It started a while back and I’ve never understood what made it so good.  It seems simple enough.  If you try and Google “Chicken Inasal,” it’s supposed to be this blend of ingredients that should make one hell of a grilled chicken. But leave it up to the fast ... Read More »

Jang Gun: Crappy Korean Food Along Libis


hile I’m a big fan of BBQ’ing and grilling, Korean food is surprisingly unappealing to me.  I’m not exactly sure why that is.  My best guess is that Korea was my childhood worst-ever trip.  It was filled with Koreanovela shooting locations (which I never watched or even knew about) and steamed vegetables.  Worst. Trip. Ever.  It’s either that or the ... Read More »

Kim Po Teahouse: Sparerib Rice Galore


f you attended my old high school , one tradition (for lack of a better term) is really to have walked from the school all the way to Greenhills Shopping Center, when it was still called Virra Mall.  It was about a 2km. walk and the best place to chow then was Le Ching.  More specifically, sparerib rice.  Even today, ...

Yabu: House of Katsu


verytime the NBA trade deadline approaches, it’s like the guy’s version of gossip.  Who’s going where and for whom and whatnot.  I was reading today’s chismis and apparently Dwight Howard has told the Magic management that he’d like to stay in Orlando for the rest of the year… Presumably to bolt to another team next year without gutting his team ...

Fruit Magic SM Mezza Residences


y first encounter with Fruit Magic was at Fitness First gym, ABS-CBN.  I thought it was actually part of the Fitness First franchise – after all, it was fruity and magical, just like how many of the gym’s alternative-preference clientele would describe themselves.  I hadn’t been to a Fruit Magic in a long time, until we checked out the SM ...

Milky & Sunny: Not So Latest Breakfast Craze


’ve heard about Milky & Sunny for the longest time now.  For about a 2-week stretch, I coulnd’t stop hearing about this place from blogs, word of mouth, and through Twitter.  Seriously, it was like the next Linsanity, but not as flocked as Lugang when it first opened.  But because we here at Food Porn Junkies are responsible eaters, we ...

Tong Yang Jupiter: Closing Time


irst of all, let me just say that Tong Yang in NOT closing shop.  Indulge me for a few minutes and the title will make more sense. I’ll just say it out loud now: I love Tong Yang.  I love the yakiniku concept and Tong Yang was really one of the first to do this.  So there might be the ... Read More »

L’Incontro Ristorante Italiano: My Best Italian Meal… By Far


his won’t sound new but I’ve been passing by L’Incontro everyday for 3 years and I’ve never gone in.  I’m serious.  And it’s not like I haven’t heard about it.  It’s just every time I pass on my way home, I just keep thinking “I want to go home!”  Especially after pretending to work (and stealing paychecks) after a hard ...
