A New Challenger in Greeka Kouzina


et’s get this out of the way: there’s no really good Greek food here in Manila.  But what we have is, at the very least, some decent ones.  Although it’s not really been a popular cuisine, it’s been gaining some traction lately.  It’s been the Cafe Med and Cyma that’s been our incumbent Greek contenders, but recently a new challenger’s ...

Eat Fresh: Famous Hong Kong Street Food


‘ll say this right off the bat: you’d have to be an idiot to not like this place.  Unless you’re from Hong Kong, you have no right to say, “This is some fucked up shit they serve here.” They pretty much serve more-than-edible Chinese food at incredibly reasonable prices — plus they open until late at night! People usually get ... 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 »

Ristras Greenhills: So Close


f you’re looking for one of the better Mexican food in Manila, you don’t have to look far.  Ristas first opened in Greenhills and opened a second branch in The Fort, which Marc visited a while back.  I veered away from the usual Mexican stuff and tried some other menu items.  Now, let me say this right off the bat: ...

Peri-Peri Grill House

Test 3

emember college? Fairly young, fairly naive, knees and back that still don’t give out on you, but ultimately — broke.  So it’s natural that any meal above a 100 bucks seemed like a fortune back then.  Although I’m still almost as cheap as I was back in the day, I find myself a lot more willing to splurge the extra ...

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 »

Stackers Burger Cafe


I get excited whenever there’s a new burger joint in town.  So there are very few things better than ending my illegal DVD window shopping day with burgers.  Not that I buy pirated DVD’s. Stackers Burger Cafe is supposedly an Australian-based joint.  I’m not exactly sure if it’s a local franchise or something, but the burgers are said to be ... Read More »

Angel’s Kitchen in Greenhills


t must be at least 5 years since my first (and only) visit to Angel’s Kitchen.  Quite ironic that it’s the places that are fairly near that you don’t get to.  I think I did try to grab a meal here, but the place was packed and parking was a bitch.  That’s gotta be a great sign, right? I was ... Read More »

Deliboys: Keep the Meat Coming


here are probably two things you need to know about me.  First, I’m a lazy driver. I wish I had a driver.  I’d get a few more winks and kill less cells with road rage for Manila’s finest traffic.  I probably won’t go out unless I really really need to.  Or unless I’m really really bored.  Really. Second thing, I ... Read More »
