Cable Car BGC
I knew Cable Car to be a drinking place for high school and college kids tucked along Pasay Road in the same building complex as Ukkokei Ramen Ron. Learned about it through friends cause of it’s epic beer pong battles. Being a non-drinker and full-on lola, I was never presented with the opportunity to give the place a visit until Aldous invited me to a blogger dinner there. Yep, a dinner! I didn’t even know they had food.

Cable Car BGC
I think the kind of food they serve here caters to a particular market and it seems to be targeted to young guys who enjoy their food with beer. I swear, everything they served here was full on dude food. It’s the kind of food that guys who don’t cook would probably think of cooking for themselves.

Cable Car BGC
We started with the Sisig Spaghetti (Php 199) which is as straightforward as it gets. Had my doubts about it when it got to the table but I was surprised to find that it’s a strange combo that works. The sisig was generous and crispy too.

Cable Car BGC
The medium Heartbreaker Pizza (Php 650) was served next. It’s an all-meat pizza topped with ham and burger bits. I thought it was on the sweet side.

Cable Car BGC
I thought the Sizzling Seafood Aligue Rice (Php 249) looked pretty interesting but it lacked a bit of flavor in terms of taste. I liked that the seafood toppings were generous but I think this is something you have to eat with meat. It’s a good fried rice base but it isn’t best appreciated alone.

Cable Car BGC
The Buffalo Chicken Rice Melt (Php 199) is drunken comfort food defined. This was a rich dish consisting of buffalo chicken strips, a creamy, cheesy sauce on a generous bed of white rice. This would be awesome if you were drunk and hungry.

Cable Car BGC
Last was the Truffled Tapa (Php 350) which proves to be an interesting dish. You can’t go wrong with Pinoy tapa, two runny eggs, garlic rice with a dash of that truffle essence. The serving for this was generous which is great.

Cable Car BGC
Here’s what it looked like when I mashed it together. Mmm…

Cable Car BGC
To cap the night off, they served us a cocktail each. The Punyeta (Php 110) is what we like to call a traydor or a traitor. It’s the kind of drink that goes down smooth, tastes sweet like juice but will get you smashed as ever once you keep drinking. I don’t drink much so I had a sip.

Cable Car BGC
Here’s a shot of the beer pong tables they have outside. I also saw another game synonymous to battle ship but a giant drinking version. Seems to be the perfect place for college kids to unwind. If you find yourself here and drunk, don’t hesitate to try their dishes!

Dotonburi Sushi
I’ll be posting a lot of backlog from my last Osaka trip so this is just a heads up. I get a lot of messages from family and friends asking me what my favorite Osaka food finds are so I thought it’d be convenient to just post them all here for everyone to see.

Dotonburi Sushi
I have no idea what this restaurant is called but we found it when as we were walking around Dotonburi for brunch. It was a brightly lit take-out sushi and sashimi joint where all the fish is freshly packed and refrigerated, just like in the grocery aisles. What sets this place apart from a grocery is that there are stools and high tables on one side where diners who buy their fish can dine. The tables have soy sauce, tissue and chopsticks and the place sells drinks as well.

Dotonburi Sushi
It’s a pay at the counter kind of place. I can’t say it’s a restaurant cause it’s a lot more like a deli with rows and rows of pre-packed sushi and sashimi.

Dotonburi Sushi
There was even a booth where they were selling fresh and grilled oysters for ¥400 a piece.

Dotonburi Sushi
We had grilled oysters topped with soy sauce, butter and lemon.

Dotonburi Sushi
Then we looked through the different rows of fish and picked out the stuff we wanted to try. There was a wide array of sorts, from the affordable to premium.

I was happy to see fresh slabs of otoro in the mix. It’s the fattiest best part of any tuna and comes straight from the belly. It’s usually pricey but in this fine establishment, Otoro Sashimi was ¥1500 which at Php 550 is affordable.

Dotonburi Sushi
Of course, I ordered it. After paying, you can have it sliced by any of the chefs on-hand. If they’re not prepping stuff for customers, you’ll find them slicing and packing more fish and putting them in more take-out containers.

Sake Nigiri and Rolls for ¥500 / Unagi Nigiri for ¥200 / Tamago for ¥100

Dotonburi Sushi
Look at the stripes on the salmon slabs, absolutely gorgeous. Tasted great and fresh as ever.

Dotonburi Sushi
The Otoro was served with hot, seafood miso soup with baby clams. It was the best sashmi I ever tasted. It melts in your mouth just like butter and it’s rich, creamy and just such a dream to eat. I savored every second I had it in my mouth. It’s best eaten with your eyes closed.

Dotonburi Sushi
We also saw that they were filleting a huge tuna by the time we were done eating. It’s some sort of tourist attraction there. There are guys gutting and cutting this huge fish and showing the different parts of meat inside.

Maybe you’ll all laugh at me when I say this was one of the best sushi/sashimi meals I had in my life. Never cared much for ambience and I find that the most unassuming places end up surprising you. What makes this place so special to me is how fresh everything is and the quality of the products and the prices all just don’t add up! It’s too good to be this cheap but I’m glad. Thank you Japan for going above and beyond my expectations every single meal.

It’s strange but I’ve been visiting Osaka yearly for 3 years now and I find that sukiyaki shops are hard to come-by. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of restaurants and food everywhere – but the thing with Japan is that most (if not all) restaurants just serve the same kind of food. If you want sushi, you go to a sushi place, ramen shops will only have ramen, katsu shops will only have katsu, you get my drift. I always stay in the Shinsaibashi area which is just walking distance to Dotonburi and Namba – and I don’t know if it’s just me but sukiyaki restaurants are few and far between. There seem to be a lot of shabu-shabu Japanese hot pot places but nope, not a lot of sukiyaki joints.

The first time I discovered Syabuya Sukiyaki was on one of the last few days of my trip last year. I was hell bent on eating sukiyaki and lo and behold, a google search came up and lead me straight to the mall – Namba Parks.

Sukiyaki Namba Parks
Tried both the Japanese Beef Lunch Set (¥2,037) and got Imported Beef on the side just to try. The lunch set comes with everything in this photo but since it’s a set, this is pretty much your whole meal.

Sukiyaki Namba Parks
I never ordered the Imported Beef again – as you can tell by the photo it’s lean and barely has any marbling.

DSC04113
Their menu is pretty straightforward. You pick if you want Sukiyaki or Shabu-Shabu. Beef or Pork? Japanese beef or US beef? Do you want to eat a set or unlimited? When you pick the unlimited option, everyone in the table has to get the same thing.

Sukiyaki - Namba Parks
I went back with my family and we all got the Unlimited Japanese Beef Sukiyaki Set (¥4,298). This comes with unlimited everything – beef, rice, raw egg and veggies. It’s a steal at Php 1570 if you ask me cause you’d be hard pressed to find unlimited sukiyaki this good at this price point anywhere in Manila.

DSC04115
Just a closer look at the Special Japanese Beef. Check the marbling on that thing! It’s embarrassing to admit but I think we finished twelve of these trays total. Sulit na sulit! Lol.

DSC04116
It’s a full plate but enoki is all that matters. They served us about 4 small extra plates of enoki.

DSC04114
If you’ve never tried sukiyaki, it’s basically a Japanese hotpot stew. You start by letting the soup (soy sauce, sugar, mirin) boil, slowly adding leeks and some onions for a bit more flavor then when it heats up, you dip thinly sliced beef in and swish until it cooks.

DSC04119
What really sets this dish apart is the quality of the meat. Because prep is so simple, the ingredients really do stand out. Just by looking at it, you can tell Syabuya’s Japanese beef is top-notch.

Sukiyaki - Namba Parks
Swish til it’s brown!

Sukiyaki - Namba Parks

When the meat cooks, you dip it in in a separate bowl with beat raw egg and eat it. You can have it alone or with Japanese rice or noodles or tofu or veggies. I particularly enjoy eating it with rice and sometimes enoki. Dipping it in raw egg is a must. It enhances the flavor, adding a creaminess to the bold taste of the meat and the sweetness of the sauce. It just balances everything out better.

DSC04121
This is all the natural oil that came from the fat in the beef. The soup had zero oil in it, just had to take a photo for reasons unknown.

DSC04122
The aftermath. Thankfully they remove the trays of beef every time they see them empty otherwise our table would have a little tower.

The bill!

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
I’ve been eating in Sandaya for almost a decade now. It’s the family’s go-to spot for a great Yakiniku dinner. We’re creatures of habit and when we like a restaurant, we go very frequently and end up ordering the same thing. Sandaya’s always been a staple for us and for the longest time I thought I already wrote about it but when I did a quick search today I discovered I haven’t yet. This was so weird to me it’s like a bunch of aliens hacked my blog and deleted it or something I could’ve sworn I’d written about it before.

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
Anyway. We just get about 5 orders of CAB Angus Beef Boneless Short Ribs (Php 350 each), a cup of rice each and a side order of kimchi and we’re done.

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
We were too excited about the kimchi so this was taken in the midst of the meal.

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
I think other than the fact they serve really good beef, their dipping sauce sets them apart. There’s this red paste type sauce (I think its gochujang) and then there’s this light soy sauce based sauce that you mix together. I ask the waitresses for minced garlic to mix in with my sauce for the ultimate one-two punch combo for bad breath. So I mix 2 parts red sauce with 1 part brown sauce and grab a chopstick’s grip worth of chilli and there’s my sauce.

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
When I eat in restaurants where I have to cook my own food, I like to pace myself and eat slowly. It’d suck to get full fast and get sick so you might as well soak up the family time and conversation.

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
Sandaya’s charcoal grills fire up quickly so cooking is fun and convenient. They give you tongs too so you don’t need to touch the raw meat with the same chopsticks you feed yourself with.

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
After you grill it to perfection, you fish it out of the grill, dip it in the sauce and take a big bite with some rice.

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
I like it with the fat burnt crisp around the edges. It’s also nice that they don’t slice their beef too thin so it’s still nice and juicy when you bite into it. Other restaurants slice their meat so thin that it shrinks so much when you end up cooking it.

Sandaya Yakiniku - Makati
I highly recommend this place. If you’re feeling carnivorous and want to be satisfied, make that reservation ASAP and you won’t regret it. I have yet to find a yakiniku restaurant in Metro Manila that can top Sandaya. What’s the best yakiniku restaurant you’ve ever tried?

The best thing about Sandaya? Your clothes don’t smell like food after eating there. I kid you not.

When I’m craving good Korean food, only one place comes to mind and it’s always Korea Garden. I’ve been there so many times through the years and it’s weird just thinking that I never got around to writing about it til now. It’s been around as long as I remember and they just have one big branch in Jupiter St, Makati.

Korea Garden w Isa
Just last week I was there twice; on Sunday for dinner with my family and again with Isa and Carina for a big free lunch thanks to Isa’s mom. If my memory serves me right, Isa’s grandma moved to Manila in the midst of war for love. She is also Korean and an amazing cook which explains why Korea Garden exists and why it’s been around for so long.

On to the food! Since I ate there twice in a week, I’d like to include the dishes I had for both occasions. When I was with my family, we ordered the staples, things we usually order when we’re there. But at lunch with Isa and Carina, Isa’s mom ordered more interesting dishes for us, things that probably don’t come to mind first-hand when you think of Korean food; a bulk of them I actually encountered for the first time.

Korea Garden w Isa
Always the main event. The Korean Beef Stew (Php 370) here is unrivaled and I don’t think I’ve tasted anything better than theirs. Time and time again my mom has tried recreating the dish at home, it’s always good but it’s just not the same. Korea Garden’s beef stew just tastes like it’s been boiled for hours with meat so tender, it just falls off the bone. The broth is bold and boasts a spicy after taste. It’s also best appreciated with a steaming cup of white rice.

Korea Garden Sandy
Another staple for us is the Chicken Kui/Spicy Chicken (Php 330) which we all attacked before I could sneak a photo in. It’s marinated in this sort of chili paste before getting grilled. It’s simple but it’s the kind of taste you look for every once in a while. They use chicken thigh fillets for this which is a plus because I love dark meat.

Korea Garden Sandy
I’ve always preferred Kalbi Cui (Php 430) to bulgogi just because I think short ribs just taste better. It’s kind of sweet, marinated with a soy sauce base and grilled. It’s tender and something I have to order every time I’m there.

Korea Garden Sandy
Chapchae (Php 310) is Korea’s version of pancit. Safe to order for the kids considering how subtle the tastes in this dish hour. It’s made with sweet potato noodles which are bouncy and have a slippier texture, mixed in with some veggies and beef.

Next up, we have dishes from the time I went with Isa and Carina. Not mainstream like the first batch, most of the food I tried with them that day, I just tried for the first time. I enjoy getting exposed to new food especially when I find that they’re really good.

Korea Garden w Isa
Here’s something I ended up loving but wouldn’t have had the guts to order myself. Yuk Hue is basically Korean steak tartare. I hadn’t ever tried steak tartare, never thought of it or had the chance to order it but hey, this was surprisingly really, really good. You mix it all together well before having a bite. The ground beef is already perfectly seasoned with salt, pepper, sesame oil and leeks before you mash in the jicamas and egg yolk. It was refreshing because of how cold the meat was but boasted such genuine flavors. Something I’ll most likely order the next time I’m there.

Korea Garden w Isa
We were served an assortment of pancake dishes as well. Admittedly, I’m not really a pancake person but I gave these guys a shot. Above is a photo of the Pajeon which had seafood and a lot of green onions.

Korea Garden w Isa
We also tried the Bintaetok, a mung bean pancake. I really couldn’t tell the difference between either but they were both alright. Again, not a pancake person!

Korea Garden w Isa
This gorgeous spread is called Gujeolpan and it reminded me so much of peking duck for the sheer fact of needing to enclose meat and veggies in a wrap. Once a dish for Korean nobles (I tell ya, it’s presentation), how you eat this is basically cram everything or whatever you want in a wrap and dip it in a sweet soy sauce before biting. Patient people or people who like sandwiches and wraps will enjoy this.

Korea Garden w Isa
We also had this Samgyupsal with Beef Tenderloin which was just alright. I find that the Pork Belly version is much tastier and easier to eat cause the pork’s easier to bite off. For those who have never eaten this and want to, I’ll save you from the awkwardness of not knowing how to properly eat this. First, take a lettuce leaf, put a piece of meat in it along with some raw garlic, then slather on the ssamjang and take a bite.

Korea Garden w Isa
Look at this! It’s got tuna sashimi. I learned that this cold noodle dish is called Hwe Naeng Myeun made with a really spicy thick, chili sauce, vermicelli noodles, tuna sashimi and veggies. I felt so refreshed eating this but it’s the kind of spicy not everybody can handle.

Korea Garden w Isa
Carina loves spicy food as much as I do but this, she couldn’t eat. I enjoyed this a lot, it had different textures and was tons spicy I couldn’t eat it without sipping water after a couple of bites. Really good though.

Korea Garden w Isa
Dates for the day!

Wow, that was a lot of food. Bottom line is, Korea Garden’s where I go when I need a good Korean fix. Been eating here for years and the food’s always consistent and I know this because I only always order the same things. For those of you who haven’t ever eaten here, where do you go to get good Korean food? I’m curious.

Three days ago, I went to The Village Tavern in BHS Central to celebrate their first anniversary with other folks in the media. It was my first time there and to be completely honest, before I got their email invite I hadn’t ever heard of the place. I also learned that the restaurant was a franchise from the US. Interiors are spacious with a whole lot of tables and lights are quite dim, far far away from the rundown look of a typical tavern.

The Village Tavern

We were all served 7 entrees in total and I was seated in a table with 5 other people since I didn’t know anyone there. The upside was, I got to meet other nice people who enjoy writing about food. The downside? Sharing single-serving entrees with like, 5 other people. That was hard.

The Village Tavern
For starters, they sent out two full-size servings of Crispy Clams with Spicy Lemon Dip. Loved the spicy, sour dipping sauce but I’d appreciate the dish more if they used bigger clams. These ones were so small I couldn’t even fork them. They were pretty good though but best eaten with yer hands.

The Village Tavern
Next up was this huge salad which was quite alright as well but kind of lacked dressing. It’s called the Fully Loaded Romaine Heart and consists of romaine lettuce served with bacon, red onions, tomatoes and topped with a bleu cheese dressing.

The Village Tavern
Roasted Bone Marrow‘s kind of a really in dish these days but I was still glad to see it on the menu. An interesting thing head chef, Josh Boutwood did here adding some apple cider vinegar dip to the picture.

The Village Tavern
Typically, bone marrow’s served with bread and herb salt which they did here. The acv dip gave it a kick though that took it to a wholly different dimension. Forgot to mention, there was fried parsley that came with the dish as well but I didnt think it made much of a difference.

Ok, just so everyone knows, the next few dishes I am posting were split between me and 5 other adults so I basically only had a little taste of each.

The Village Tavern
This is a Pan-seared Atlantic cod fish cooked with Spanish chorizo, garlic served on a bed of roasted potatoes and caramelized onion. Wasn’t such a fan of the texture of the fish, since it was dry and rough. What was under the fish though was a different story. The chorizo, potato and onion combo was delicious. We enjoyed every single bit of it sans fish.

The Village Tavern
This is the 35 oz Tomahawk steak in all it’s glory. This was presented to us for photographic purposes only. If one were to order this, I suggest it’d be best to split this between just 3 people. An average serving of steak is 8 oz, this one’s just 35 oz and you have that huge axe handle to consider in terms of weight. Be warned.

The Village Tavern
Here’s the Tomahawk, served to our table of 6. We had half a strip each, it was kind of sad. Imagine, strangers splitting half a strip of steak with each other. In all honesty, this really wasn’t anything great. Meat was lean and it didn’t have the melt-in-your-mouth quality you look for in a steak. Also, it wasn’t served to us hot. Probably was the display steak we all photographed divided by all tables. Served with mustard which I didn’t try cause I wanted to get a bite of just the meat to judge its bare quality.

The Village Tavern
Again, divided into 6 this was the last of the main dishes and it was seriously the best. This sous-vide rosemary infused rack of lamb was wow worthy. So good, I was upset I had to share with 5 other people. I mean, really, I could’ve gobbled up two of these myself just cause it was that excellent. The lamb was perfectly pink, tender and easily slipped off the bone served atop a bed of mash potatoes. In the sous vide bath for 2 hours, I could really taste the rosemary in every bite. I only had 3 bites though so I’m definitely coming back for this.

The Village Tavern
Dessert came in the form of a Frozen Lime Souffle. Yup, we all split this. This tasted interesting, the sorbet in the middle didn’t even taste like a sorbet. It was refreshing, a nice palette cleanser.

I don’t have the prices up for this post cause these new dishes all weren’t priced yet when served to us. I think these guys will start showing up on the menu next month so head there for some lamb when you can cause that’s what I plan to do.

DISCLAIMER: Opinions and photos are mine. Food was free but if you read the whole thing, it’s obvious I’m completely honest. I’d like to thank the Bistro Group for hosting us that night and Perkcomm Inc. for the invitation.

I met Alex back when we were Prep or something and bonded over dogs, Ghostwriter and the Power Rangers. She’s one of the friends I’ve had the longest and she’s been living in Singapore for a little over a year. Last time I was in Singapore, she kept telling me about some Lebanese place with the best hummus ever. I didn’t get to eat there cause we were tons hungry and in the mood for other stuff so we ate in Cafe Le Caire which was right next door.

Cafe le Caire - Singapore
Since Shawarma’s something I ritually crave for and the kind of dish I can eat all time time, I ordered a Chicken Shawarma Plate (SG$13). The waitress there was Pinay and she recommended the beef but they ran out so I had chicken instead. By far, this is the tastiest chicken shawarma I’ve ever had. Just look at it. It was extremely well seasoned and I liked the touch of fried onions on top of the rice. The only downside is, they dont serve garlic sauce with it. You have to pay extra for some garlic yogurt sauce though which I find kind of annoying.

Cafe le Caire - Singapore
I forgot what Alex’s order was called but she got the Daud Pasha (SG$9) which are lamb meatballs cooked in a tomato-based stew. I didn’t get to try this but she said it was really good and she finished it all along with her pita bread.

Cafe le Caire - Singapore
This is Alex looking at the menu! I think this was a post-Laneway celebratory lunch of some sort because she got an awesome job at Google. She treated me for this one so thank you, Lex!

Chubby Chicken
The nice folks at Chubby Chicken had me over for lunch the other day to sample some dishes. I’m hardly ever in the Katipunan area so I had to schedule this right, I was pretty excited though because based on what I read about them online. When I found the restaurant on the corner of Rosa Alvero St. and Esteban Abada (behind McDo Katipunan), there were quite a lot of people so it was pretty busy. I approached the cashier and found out the owner had planned out a set menu for me.

Chubby Chicken
Their signature dish, Chubby Chicken, seemed like something I’d have constructed myself. I’m a big garlic sauce fiend and combining it with a hunky soy glazed chicken leg was nothing short of genius. At just Php 118 for 2 pieces, it’s obviously a steal. The chicken legs they use are big pieces that remind me so much of home. They are extremely generous with their soy glaze and when you bite into the chicken, there’s a resounding crunch. Combining the sweet, salty glazed chicken with a creamy garlic sauce tasted just about right. Service is fast too which is such a plus.

Chubby Chicken
Next was Carbonara with Chubby Chicken Strips (Php 145). I like it when carbonara is so thick and creamy and slathered generously with about-to-be-crispy bacon. Taste wise, this was yummy carbonara, comparable to the kind I’d make at home. My only issue with this though was that the noodles weren’t al dente, they were a tad mushy. The Chicken Strips were like a elongated chicken nuggets served with glaze on the side. I enjoyed how meaty this was but I prefer the original chicken just cause it’s crispier.

Chubby Chicken
They also served a Chubby Chicken Taco with Fries (Php 75). While I liked how this tasted since it was really garlicky I wish there were two chicken strips in there to balance out how big the taco shell was.

Chubby Chicken
Chubby Chicken also provides a wide array of imported soda. They let me sample this A&W Cream Soda for kicks.

Chubby Chicken
Carina’s sister Bebeng ordered the Chubby Chicken Parmigiana (Php 165) and I had a bite of it and thought it was just okay.

Chubby Chicken
For dessert, they served us Chubby Twinkies (Php 115) and since the Twinkies company closed in America I don’t know how long they’ll be able to keep this up. The Twinkie was coated in batter and fried to a crisp, then they put chocolate ice cream next to it topped with chocolate crumbs. I have this weird thing against fried bread so I wouldn’t have been a good judge for this but Beng certainly enjoyed it. She liked the Twinkie corners best because they were so crisp.

Chubby Chicken
Also, this might sound super funny but I thought their chicken was so good. I ordered another 2 pieces but this time, I paid for it. Hahaha

Chubby Chicken
Seriously, looking at these photos again made my mouth water and if they could deliver I’d probably order often. The verdict? If I ever find myself in Katipunan and I’m craving a good fried chicken meal, you’ll find me back in Chubby Chicken.

Disclaimer: Chubby Chicken invited me to try their food so I could review it. Beng paid for her Chicken Parmigiana and I paid for an additional order of Chubby Chicken. Views posted are honest and mine. LOL I don’t really know how disclaimers should go obviously.
