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.

Going Crazy Over Unli Meat! Samgyupsalamat Experience

The “Saturday Group” wanted to try this restaurant, Samgyupsalamat, many have been raving about. Though we had to wait for almost 2 hours to be seated, I’d say it is totally worth it.

Customer service is superb! The staff was courteous and attentive. Our orders came out quickly and side dishes were replenished real fast. We had unlimited pork and beef for P499 per person. You can choose from 5 kinds of pork and 9 kinds of beef. It also includes unlimited banchan (side dishes), rice, and soup. The food is good! I liked the kimchi and the scallion salad with sesame oil the most. The meat is of good quality and flavorful. I lost count of how many plates we had that night!

Overall, I’d say that our experience is excellent and I recommend you try it!

TIPS:

1. The afternoon/dinner buffet starts at 3pm. Make sure you place your name in the waiting list. Please allot about an hour waiting time to be seated. They close at 2am.

2. You can order a maximum of 2 plates at a time. Once consumed, then you can order the next batch.

3. Same unlimited course should be chosen per table. Choose if you’ll go all pork or have pork and beef. Damay damay ito! Walang titiwalag.

Exploring Hong Kong 2017

I love how modernity and tradition in this vibrant city of Hong Kong intertwine. Exploring this fast-paced urban jungle, I was able to see a modern city rich of ancient culture.

Here are some places we visited during the trip:

Mongkok: This place is known for Ladies’ Market where you do bargain shopping of bags and clothes, Temple Street Night Market for street food and just about anything (toys, clothes,souvenirs), and Sneaker Street where shoes and sports stores are located.

Tip: Bargain! Bargain! Bargain!

Central: It is the business district of Hong Kong. Skyscrapers, luxury malls with high-end brands, fancy restaurants, and night clubs surround this financial hub. You can also find here the oldest Temple in Hong Kong, the Man Mo Temple.

Tip: Go to the rooftop garden of IFC mall and enjoy the view. It’s open to the public. šŸ™‚

Tsim Sha Tsui: It is a shopping and nightlife district in Kowloon. You can watch Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights in TST Promenade and appreciate Hong Kong’s skyline. It’s interesting to watch street performers and try out one of Hong Kong’s favorite snacks… egg tart.

I’ve only seen a part of Hong Kong and I know there’s more to explore, more places to see, more food to try, and more people to meet. I will definitely visit this dazzling city again.

Lateral Drift Championship Series 2012- Round 1

Spectators gathered at the Quirino Grandstand yesterday afternoon to watch amateur and pro drifters rev up their engines in the first leg of the Lateral Drift Championship Series this 2012.

They had all the cars lined up and had each of the drivers introduce themselves.

The sun is up and the cars are ready to drift! Tandem battle runs started, it’s elimination time! The burning tires and the roaring engines pumped up the crowd. It was so cool watching the chase driver try to get close to the lead driver, like waiting for some car wreck to happen. šŸ˜”

These drivers showed masterful execution of their skills as no major car crash happened even during the rain at the latter part of the event.

Congratulations to the winners!

1st – Jet Mathay
