Why Breaking the Rules at Mamou Too! Works


o offense to bacon and pork lovers, but steak is the ultimate bro food.  So it’s an absolute no-brainer that you want your steaks done right.  You’d want the best kind of meat, the right cut to begin with.  The French snobs will then tell you that steaks have to be cooked medium rare, seasoned really well with just salt ...

How to Get Your Money’s Worth at The New Spiral


piral has arguably the best buffet spread in Manila.  Usually, it’s a shit load of dishes with maybe the prime rib really standing out.  It gets overwhelming that it becomes a parade of mediocre dishes that gets covered up.  Sure, there’s the usual prime rib station, the pasta section, the Indian, Chinese and all that shebang — but what makes ...

Penang Diaries: Chee Wah Fish Head Curry


fter that fish head curry disaster at AMK with fish head curry, I was expecting a lot from this trip.  Then my sister comes home from Kuala Lumpur about 2 weeks before our scheduled trip and tells me that she had the best fish head curry ever.  How the hell do I look myself in the mirror if I couldn’t ...

Penang Diaries: Nasi Kandar Line Clear


eople ask me, “Why Penang?”  Why not Penang? It’s the food capital of Asia, people.  I think that’s all that needs to be said. North of Kuala Lumpur, Penang is about a 6-hour bus ride from KL with an international airport if you prefer to spend a bit more for the 1-2 hour plane ride.  Penang’s hot, humid, but god ...

Trippin’ in Greece Part 7: Best Meal in Thanasis


would’ve loved to have my best meal in Greece during my last day there.  Instead, this meal was actually during my first night there and it’s something so basic and happens to be one of my favorite things in this world: kebabs! There are few things in this world that I love more than kebabs.  So when kebabs are done ... Read More »

Trippin’ in Greece Part 6: A Little Surprise in Kalambaka


e joined a local tour for 2 days to visit Meteora.  We were brought to this place to a little town called Kalambaka that reminded me of Canada (even though I’ve never been).  I admit to be skeptical because it’s a tour-arranged lunch (although it wasn’t mandatory), which usually translates to “tourist trap.”  I was wrong. First, what were we ... Read More »

Spiral: Hardcore Buffet


’ve been wanting to try Spiral for quite some time now, but I’ve been (1) too cheap to shell out the cash, (2) too lazy to drive all the way to the Manila area, and (3) too cheap to shell out the cash.  With the 50% discount that my sister got (with her HSBC Debit Card), her insistent bugging me ...
