Lined up for 1 hour to try Manila's new import food spot The Halal Guys. The falafel bowl + gyro and chicken combo brought back fun memories of when I lived in New York playing shortstop for the New York Yankees while banging Hollywood hotties. No wait, that was Derek Jeter. 😂😭 Order extra white sauce with your New York size meal! @thehalalguysph
 photo IMG-20151018-WA0001_zpsemhuaabl.jpg

Falafel was salty and the Jasmine rice was menh. They should have stuck with Basmati rice. Still beats flying to New York for a bowl, though. Try it soon! (Go during off hours to avoid the long queue.)

Looking for the perfect spot for noodle soup on a cold rainy day/night? Quezon City has another food gem and it's Caution Hot 警告辣 Spicy Noodle House! It's right around the corner from StrEAT Maginhawa Food Park. The average wait time is 30 minutes but you can order your food in advance so you can get your food a few minutes after you are seated. I ordered the Pork Asado-Classic-Egg Noodles (175 pesos) and Kuchay-Pork Dumplings (5 pcs for 60 pesos) and it was THE BOMB. Affordable and yummy. Yup, I'll definitely be back soon!  Street parking only.

Now, after years of looking for a similar joint, the beers Gods have blessed me with this. Pretty good tap beer and mouth-watering grub. Welcome to The Brewery At The Palace!

MAJOR COMEBACK

0

| Posted in , | Posted on Thursday, July 09, 2015

About 6 months ago, I was on Instagram scrolling through my feed when I saw #NT legend @airrev post a photo of what I thought was an original pair of K-Swiss SI-18 International from 1989. I posted "No way!" and forgot about the shoes. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when another colorway popped up on my screen. I knew then that I was late and K-Swiss had re-issued the "Tennis Shoe of the Year" (3 years in a row). I told myself that I HAD to have one!

I remember drooling over my cousin kuya Bernard's pair back in the early 90's. It was one of the few models that I always wanted but missed out on as a kid because I was only limited to 1-2 pairs of sneakers per school year. My brothers and I had the K-Swiss Classic and they became part of my sneaker rotation for years. I even picked up a pair of wheat/gum Classics and wore them (with the tags on, lol) to the K-Swiss International-sponsored Sneaker Pimps Manila back in 2005. With my undying love for timeless sneakers, the SI-18 International remained as my K-Swiss holy grail for over 20 years.

These may not be the OG colorway but the 1992 version is just as sweet! Thank you K-Swiss and Eric Sarin for bringing them back! You can check out his interview HERE.

SHIT SOUP

Rainy night got us driving around QC for some good bulalo. Saw THIS on Don A. Roces Ave. with 4.4 out of 5 facebook star rating from 181 reviews. Should be good, yeah? HELL NO. THE WORST SPECIALTY RESTAURANT EVER. You'll be better off boiling your old used socks and throwing in some Spam/Vienna sausage slices. We ordered the "Family Bulalo w/ bone marrow (2-3 persons)" but all we got was a 1/3 bowl of white broth that tasted like fish sauce. We thought the meat and veggies were going to be served separately but after waiting 5 minutes we found small several chunks of meat and 2 pieces of pechay in the soup. 320 pesos for a bowl of shit that I wouldn't even give to homeless people. NEVER AGAIN!

I swore years ago I would never post a "Complex" or "Buzzfeed" type of list but when I saw drama brewing on my facebook feed over heavily discounted signature basketball shoes and talking to Mark we Legendary about it and the current state of the local market, I figured I might as well poke fun at everybody involved (minus the retailer/s where the stocks came from).  Resellers trying to take advantage of the sale by scooping up items that stores can't even move, "online authority" getting mad at them for reselling GR shoes (read: You should only sell limited ones! LOL), and everything in between is funny.

The jig is up, yo.

When news leaked that local airlines had removed fuel surcharges because of low gasoline prices, I knew it was going to be hard to look for another online deal. I said to myself, "These f*ckers will just raise their base prices." For about a month and a half I was correct. Most "deals" had base prices of over 200% compared to rates last year. Then I saw a new online promo by Cebu Pacific and scored this Manila-Narita-Manila deal. It took me a couple of hours to find dates with both deals to and from Tokyo but it was all worth it. Lucky? You betcha!

I know my team failed to make the playoffs this year but I still watched nonetheless. Nothing is more golden than seeing my 49ers' NFC West rival, the Seattle Seahawks, lose like that. Dumbest play calling EVER!
