EAT MAKATI: MANDO’S WINGSHACK


Since the mother is out of our radius, lunch outs are more frequent. 🙂 Wendy suggested this Wingshack but after trying them out, I WARN YOU NOT TO.

The place was a bit small, just like the other hole in the walls in the area. Inside its shack can fit about 4 tables of 4.

We got there, observed the menu and tried to order:

20170515_12123120170515_121218

TACOS – All of them are not available

BURGER – Not available

CHICKEN TENDERS – Not available.

All we are left with is their WINGS. I know it’s a wings place but what if we wanted to try all sorts from their menu? And they only have 1 freakin food in their menu that’s available!!

We were there at 12:15 pm. They open at 12nn. Shouldn’t they be there at 11 am to prepare the food already? We ordered our food at 12:20 – Wings. We were served after more than an hour! Food was not even hot, not even warm! Food was served at 1:30 pm. Some portions of the plate was wet, sauce was bland, food was cold. None of it was a good enough experience!

Hayy. We all ordered Wings with the following Sauces:

Beer BBQ

Spicy K-Town

Sweeracha and Buffalo Style.

All four of us was disappointed.

NEVER AGAIN.

EAT MAKATI: WINGSTOP


IMG_3822

From Texas, they are finally here in Manila! All the Wing Lovers should stop by as they claim to be the Wing Expert. Be the judge!

IMG_3815

So if you’re a Wing Person, this is like entering the gates of heaven. It was very spacious and bright.  IMG_3817

It’s also a self service type so you order at the counter first before taking your seat. No worries, the place is huge, there are a lot of tables and chairs for you to sit.

IMG_3825

Since we are on a mission to try something new every time, we ordered Blue Moon for Php 175 and Stella Artois for Php 135. Nothing new, just like any beer but with a hiked up price.

IMG_3834

For their famous signature wings, here are the flavours: 1) Teriyaki – sweet and soy 2) Garlic Parmesan – self explanatory 3) Lemon Pepper – Lemon with Black Pepper 4) Hickory Smoked BBQ – Sweet and smoky 5) Louisiana Rub – Cayene and Garlic Rub 6) Mild Buffalo – Buffalo Sauce with less heat 7) Hot Buffalo – the real one 8) Cajun – Hot Buffalo with even more added spices and 9) Atomic – the spiciest of them all.

So here’s what we actually ordered:

IMG_3837 IMG_3839

He ordered the 5 pc Wing Set of Mild Buffalo Wings for Php 235. It is Buffalo Wings with less heat. Jude liked the taste but we both had one observation; the wings is not dripping sauce. It was a bit dry and tacky. Flavors might have stayed to the chicken but isn’t that the point of eating wings? To get your hands, lips and chin dripping from the buffalo sauce?

I always order Chicken Tenders because there’s no way in hell I’ll get my money’s worth of chicken goodness in wings because once I see the brown – reddish meat of the chicken near the bone, I stop. It’s just not my thing to pick the chicken, and devour everything until it’s a shiny piece of bone or what was left of it.

I ordered 3 pc Chicken Tenders with Bleu Cheese Dip for Php 185 and an additional Php 30 for the dip. The skin is full of flavor. Usually, I just eat the skin, because all the white meat is bland. But this one though, it’s really good! IMG_3845 IMG_3847

This is his favorite part of the meal. I know I’ve been telling you guys that he’s a wing person, but since he did not fell in love with the Mild Buffalo set, this Parmesan Fries really caught his attention. And, no doubt. Garlic Parmesan Fries for Php 100.

IMG_3850Though it did not really smack me with a wow taste, I want to go back and taste the other flavors as well.

EAT ORTIGAS: Tipsy Pig


Because this is the perfect time to try the Tipsy Pig. The boyfriend is working late. 

Image

Now. now, We are Starving. I am dead hungry. While the attorney had his orders already, I cannot seem to pick what I want. So I decided to order the drinks first. 

Image

I was devastated. I wanted two flavored beers: Salted Caramel, which is their best seller and the Green Apple. Good thing I have this wonderful boyfriend. He might have been thinking of ordering another wine but ended up ordering the Salted Caramel so I can taste both. Hihi. He says that theirs is better than the first famous salted caramel beer from Rue Bourbon. It was okay, from my perspective and much sweeter too. I liked my Green Apple Beer. It doesn’t have much of their carbon dioxide which makes you burp and full even just for a small amount. Though, the taste of the green apple is only apparent by the last gulp. 

Image

Buffalo Wings – I love the sauce. My lovey devoured this. Well, given that he loves ANY and EVERY Buffalo Wings.

Image

Pulled Pork Pizza – This is heavenly. Lots and lots of cheese with what tasted like bits and pieces of barbeque. Hihi. 

We had to run though, the night we tried this was the night of Matteo Guddicelli’s birthday so we were asked to hurry up with our dinners. We’ll be trying the Nomama next time. :)) This was at Capital Commons. 

EAT BF: The Burgery; The Bad Boys of Burger


IMG_1349 The place was modern with wood and leather chairs inside. Though when we went there, it was full so we had to sit outside. Besides, Jude wanted to smoke anyway. It had a Modern Logo – Black and White Artistry to it. IMG_1350 Though it states The Burgery, of course they had all sorts of other food – apparently the same with all the expensive diners out there. – the difference is, they are much more affordable.

IMG_1351 IMG_1352 IMG_1354 I ordered Amaretto Sour – If you’re looking for a feminine drink, this is it. It doesn’t taste like there’s alcohol in it. Plus it tastes like Çhildish Medicine. – in which when Jude tasted, he told me it tasted like Gummy Bears. IMG_1355 Iced Tea – Typical. Home Brewed but nothing different. IMG_1357 The Machine Gun – Php 150IMG_1358 100% Beef Patty, Mushroom, Bacon and Cheese – Generous Load of Cheese but Small amounts of Bacon. :/ IMG_1359 Fat Tony – Php 145IMG_1360 This is basically the same as the Machine Gun minus the Mushroom but Heaps and Heaps of Bacon and Cheese. Gaah. I wish I ordered this one instead. 😀 IMG_1362

 

Crazy 6s – Php 178 – The classic. I loved this Wings. The flavors of the Wings were glued to the skin unlike the other wings that was dripping – and in that case, the sauce gets left behind in the plate – useless.

The servers were very friendly and accommodating. and very affordable. So WTH? We’ll come back for this.

EAT BF Hole in the Wall: Flaming Wings


It’s my third time here but feels like my first since it’s been ages.

Image

Okay, We got here at 1 in the afternoon and we were the first one there.

Image

And it gets pretty crowded around 2pm.

Image

You get to choose your own sauce and your own dip.

Image

I ordered chicken tenders with BBQ Sauce and Ranch Dip. 😀 It was awe-some!

Image

Seafood Marinara which was bland. Sauce was too watery. Seafood still tastes like seawater and there wasn’t any flavor. Blah.

Image

And he ordered the famous wings with Bleu Cheese Dip.

Image

Plus a side order of Fries. 😀

Image

My date, My lovely date says hi! 😀
