Louie-Luis Ice Cream Sandwiches! The Perfect Dessert?

        I had lunch over at Alabang Town Center today and I came across this small kiosk right after finishing my bowl. It’s right in the Alabang Town Center food court, at the front.  It was hot and I was in the mood, so the alluring words “Ice Cream” magnetically drew me to the kiosk. So I stopped over and looked into the freezer, there were four flavors…

Bring out the Wee Nam Kee

The food industry can be subject to some very harsh whims.  A coupe of months back I took my usual route down the escalator at Alabang Town Center heading to the Metro supermarket, and I noticed a big white canvas stuck on one of the doors of the restaurants in that lane. It had the big bold words, “Closed by order of the Bureau of Internal Revenue” and the crest…

Sorry, I forgot to take a picture!

This is really a problem I have.  I dunno, I guess it’s in my genetic makeup. Or maybe I just have low EQ. The thing is, as a food blogger, it’s really in your best interest to take a picture of every new meal you eat, for the, uh, sake of posterity and future readers. Well, I just wanted to share today how GREAT the Jalapeno Cheese Turnover is at…

The Secret Foods You Won’t Want to Miss in Little Tokyo

Little Tokyo’s been around for a long time, but since I am too lazy to go up north to Makati, I never had the chance to eat there until last weekend. How to describe it? Little Tokyo is a little ramshackle collection of “authentic” Japanese restaurants run by Japanese nationals, all found in one little compound in the middle of bustling Makati.  It’s not in the saucier part of Makati,…

The Magnum Cafe — not my Opus

There have been hushed talks of this foolish upstart restaurant that dared to serve as its centerpiece ice cream bars that cost 100 bucks each, which would only run for 1 year, and for you to sit down you would have to have at least 3 of you sitting down to order a plate of ice cream at 300 bucks or more per head. Does that sound crazy to you?…

Yoree Korean Restaurant — You’ll be Sorry

Well, there’s a new Korean Barbecue Restaurant at Molito, Alabang (my favorite place to eat Ramen with the famous Yushoken, among other things).   The place is called Yoree, and when you see it it looks pretty unassuming and quite tacky, to be honest with its big, bold letters with bluish backlights saying “Korean Barbecue.” Can’t say it looked all that nice, especially since to your right you would see…

Home Made Chapchae and Kimari

Well, its Good Friday and in the Philippines, that means one big thing: there are no freakin’ restaurants open to sate my infinite hunger!  Worse, the Korean food stall that I go to for lunch at work is closed for the holidays. That means, no Korean Food fix for until Black Saturday.  But no! I won’t stand for it! When man is faced by an insurmountable obstacle, he evolves. When…

Such is the concept drawn out by Crimson Hotel for your Sunday famiy days. Unlike…

Ramen Nagi – Universally Black

Man I’ve been writing about ramen a lot. I’m so hungry. It’s time to write about another great bowl I had earlier this month. It’s Ramen Nagi’s Kuro ramen.  And Kuro is such an appropriate name for this black, black dish. At first I thought it would be some kind of squid ink ramen, because it was so black! But it’s really just some garlic style ramen like you get…
