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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Cibo: The Mall Temptation


hate shopping! Really. You’re walking around the mall, there’s nothing to look at, things are pretty expensive nowadays, and then your back gives out on you.  It really makes walking around the mall a drag. Suddenly, you pass by the shops and there’s this fragrant smell coming out one of the spaces. Makes you go, “Damn, I want that!”  So ... Read More »

Som’s Noodle House: The Cheap Thai Fix


love Thai cuisine.  Flavors are big, bold, and spicy. And that’s the thing I really love about Asian cuisine and it’s the same reason why Thai food is near the top of my list. For the 2 loyal readers out there, you’ve probably realized that I’m more the cheap, hole-in-the-wall, semi-dirty/dangerous foodie than the Michelin Star-seeker.  So when I first ... Read More »

You Jie Xiao Chao: The Secret Resto in Rockwell


here’s this secret restaurant near Rockwell and I’ve been hearing it for quite some time now.  No name, no signage, just “Secret Resto.”  Sounds interesting and even serves Hunan cuisine.  The unlimited rice (for about 25 bucks), which I found out about later, is just a bonus. Officially, the place has a name: You Jie Xiao Chao, which translates to ... Read More »

Sunrise Buckets


love my Buffalo wings.  Which idiot doesn’t?  They’re fried, they’re fatty, they’re skinny, and they’re spicy!  So why do I have Sunrise Buckets as my go-to wing place? To start with, proximity.  Second, there’s a pretty good vibe to the place.  Third, they have solid wings with pretty interesting flavors.  If you need another reason, then you probably need to ...
