Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen: The Worst Ramen in Manila


ot so long after declaring some place the best of something with my last review, I did get some hate mail from people who thought I was insane.  Or an idiot.  Not that they would be wrong.  I figure, no better time to rattle more cages and receive death threats instead of hate mail by doing the opposite: declaring the ...

Wee Nam Kee: The Best Chicken Rice in Manila


here’s no other way to say it but the Chicken Rice shops we have in Manila are shit.  Now I don’t claim to be an expert of boiling chicken and steaming rice, but you don’t have to be a genius to know the good ones from the bad.  Chicken Rice is NOT the national dish of Singapore.  It is, however, ...

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 ...

Brasas: Latin American Street Food


ake no mistake about it, Brasa is one of my favorite restaurants right now.  Too bad I haven’t been writing about it, but it really is.  There’s meat, there’s unique flavor and concept, it’s really good, and it’s priced very reasonably. Brasas serves Latin American food.  This covers South America — where the Brazils and Argentinas are.  I’ve been there ... Read More »

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 »

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 »

Elbert’s Cheesesteak Sandwiches: Beef. Cheese. Bun

Test 1

like cows.  They’re cute, they’re docile, and they are delicious, especially when served on a bun.  With onions and cheese.  I believe that the universe, in its infinite universal wisdom, made cows slow and trusting expressly so that humanity may one day know the delights of beef.  Throughout the short but storied history of mankind, many a culture have deigned ...

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 »

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 »
