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, ...

Leaving the Cannoli at Cantina Sicilianita


eave the gun, take the cannoli.”  Classic line.  In this case, we chose to leave the cannoli because of the overall experience.  But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Cantina Sicilianita had everything going for them.  They had this small, uncompromisingly good vibe about them.  And like any Sicilian would tell you, they’re not Italian cuisine even if the flavors ...

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 »

SuZhou Dimsum: My Favorite Set of Spareribs


‘ve always been intrigued with SuZhou Dimsum.  I pass by it often and “Su” is actually my family’s ancestral name.  I’m a god damn idiot for not trying this place out, but I’m glad I finally came to my senses. SuZhou is actually a Taiwanese restaurant.  Yeah, I know why chinky-eyed bastards all look the same to you guys, but ... Read More »

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.  ...

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 ...

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 »

Banana Leaf: Procrastination at Its Finest


e here at Food Porn Junkies are procrastinators!  And I try to mean that in the most cool/care-free way.  I’ve reached a personal low, though.  I’ve actually tried out Banana Leaf early in the year.  By the time I’m posting this, I’ve already gone back a 2nd time, which is why you guys (if there are actually any readers out ...

Papa John’s Pizza: A Little Change of Heart


’ve heard about Papa John’s Pizza for quite some time now.  Even before they set up shop here.  They’re the ones that’s been getting air-time with their concession stand in the Miami Heat arena.  They’ve had that cheesy tag line “Better ingredients.  Better pizza” line for the longest time now.  Get it, cheesy jeje?  OK, that was bad. Moving on… ... Read More »
