K-Drama Gets Real! Korean BBQ…again

When your friends are addicted to Korean Drama, they’ll do anything to get their friends join them. When we were planning to meet for lunch after Christmas, Carla suggested we go to a Korean restaurant. Ate Tin and Carla have been craving for Korean food and Soju. Korean resto it is!

We had lunch at Don Day Fresh Korean BBQ. I enjoyed Don Day’s Samgyupsal and Japchae. For 499 pesos, you can have the unlimited beef and pork combo for the Samgyupsal and other food selections on the buffet. How do you get your money’s worth at a buffet? Go for the unli meat and go for the seafood!

Kamsahamnida!

Can’t get enough of Claypot Rice

Claypot rice is so perfect for this cold December weather; it brings warmth at every bite. I have here two and I will add more restaurants for my Claypot rice series.

What it is to love about claypot rice? It is a one-dish meal wherein the flavorful rice is cooked in the claypot together with the meat and veggies. The traditional way of cooking it is by cooking using charcoal. It gives a burnt flavor…smokey… and creates a crusty bottom of burnt rice. It is best to season it with the broth or sauce to enhance the flavor.

 

Quiapo Trip: Souvenir Island + Ramon Lee’s Panciteria

Quiapo is a bustling district in Manila that is full of adventure. There are many things to do and places to see in Quiapo. This is home to the famous Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene where millions of devotees flock during “translacion” to get a chance to touch or kiss the feet of the Black Nazarene. Right outside the church is Plaza Miranda where vendors and fortune tellers manage to do business.

My friend Malou and I went to Hidalgo Street to check some photography equipment and some home wall decals. We walked along Palanca Street and found this interesting shop, Souvenir Island General Merchandise. I also showed her the “secret” stores in Kilion where to get affordable spices, baking ingredients, and packaging supplies. We met Malou’s hubby and threaded the narrow streets going to Carriedo. We had our late lunch at Ramon Lee’s Panciteria. The restaurant has been there since 1929. This is history, man! With the walls adorned with photos of celebrities and politicians, I knew we found a “gem” in this spot. Hooray for a “fine meal” – chicken, pancit, pinsec frito, fried rice, soup, and banana. Yum!

Caution Hot + Insane Chicken Challenge (Maginhawa Street Food Trip 2)

This food trip is all about hot and spicy food in Maginhawa Street and we took it to the extreme. First off, we went to Caution Hot and got our spicy noodles fix. You get to choose your meat, broth, noodles, and level of spiciness. I had pork-Szechuan-egg noodles in 2nd degree burn. It also has mushrooms, greens, and fried egg in it. 2nd degree is tolerable and I think I can handle til 3rd degree burn. Thumbs up also to the Kuchay-Pork dumplings. I like it dipped in the soy sauce + chili sauce mix rather than the black vinegar. Yum!

Next stop was at 150 Maginhawa Food Park where we had 1lb of buffalo wings with INSANE level of heat…the hottest. We also had 1lb of chicken wings in WILD level of spiciness just in case we chicken out, literally and figuratively. It is indeed insane! My mouth was on fire!!! SAM’s Vanilla Caramel shake helped dilute the painful heat in my mouth. Whewwww! With 4 wings left on the table…I guess food wins in this challenge.
