Ang Mo Kio: Singaporean Cuisine at The Podium


sian cuisine is surprisingly expensive in the Philippines.  Ponder that for a second.  Go on.  Go on.  Pho Hoa is pretty expensive and don’t even get me started on Ba Noi’s or any of the Japanese places we have here.  In fact, if you eat European cuisine here, it’s much much cheaper than the prices over in France or Italy.  ...

Circles at Makati Shangri-La: Just Another Buffet?


had a whole post on Circles Event Cafe written before this one.  It was a brilliant, humorous, even poignant piece of work.  One that I accidentally deleted.  Because I am a moron.  Just sharing.  On to the buffet! I have a love-hate relationships with buffets.  I love them, but I hate myself afterwards.  But hey, I insist on abusing my ... Read More »

Red Buffalo Wings and Pizza


have to admit that I don’t remember a lot about Red Buffalo.  It doesn’t necessarily mean it wasn’t good.  It probably has to do more with my terrible memory and the fact that this has taken so long ago.  What I do remember is exactly the date of my visit: April 29, 2012.  When this happened: So yeah, I dreaded ...

Malcolm’s De La Costa: The Incredibly Expensive Burger


guess I don’t really need to confess here, but it’s been a while.  In fact, as I’m writing about Malcolm’s De La Costa, they are now closed.  I think they’re moving somewhere else or probably renovating.  The fact that they’ll be back is the only reason why I’m taking the time to bullshit write about it. I’ve written about Malcolm’s ... Read More »

Poco Deli: Simple Little Deli Along Kapitolyo


eli’s are fucking awesome.  Aside from the occasional salads, it’s stocked with good quality meat, awesome craft beers, and cured meat.  I call that “man food” and we here at Food Porn Junkies are men. Real men are secure enough to say, “I love meat in tube form.”  So god damn it, I do.  I love it.  To start with, ... Read More »

Cafe Sweet Inspirations: Awesome Mongolian Joint


ne of the places I loved to try (but never did) was Cafe Sweet Inspirations — right across that school with the blue rooster.  Why you say?  Let’s just say the 180-peso price tag was a wee bit too much for me.  I absolutely love my Mongolian rice bowl and the better alternative then was a place called Kublai’s, which ...
