Here’s Some Sinigang na Bagnet in Today’s Pepper Eats

December 31, 2018

Sinigang na Bagnet from 8065 Bagnet (PHP120.00)


Add i says: “Had me wishing Mom made bagnet at home so her sinigang would be as sinful as this. For the price, it was a fantastic bargain.”

Rating: 9/10

Salpicao Burrito from Madeca (PHP 255)


Adee says: “The meat is very rich in flavor. It borders on salty, but that’s probably how most people like it. Not a fan of their salsa, and the rice could be better, but it’s still a satisfyingly good burrito.”

Rating: 8/10

Broccoli with Dried Scallop from Mu Noodle bar (PHP 200)


Diana says: “The dried scallop tasted just like that, dry and kind of rubbery. But hey, can’t say they didn’t warn me. Aside from the natural saltiness of the dried scallop, the dish is kind of bland overall. Extra points for the fast service though.”

Rating: 6.5/10

Truffle Omelette Souffle from Maple (PHP 330)


Giselle says: “I liked that it wasn’t as heavy as it looks, but it also didn’t taste as great as it looks.The truffle taste was overwhelming, and I ended up slathering on ketchup just to balance it out.”

Rating: 5/10

Hot Spicy Chicken from BBQ Chicken (PHP 245 for 6pcs.)


Lars says: “BBQ (Best of Best Quality according to the chalkboard on the wall) Chicken wins the prize for being the Korean restaurant that has the most un-Korean name. Their Hot Spicy Chicken is deceptively deadly. You’d take a couple of bites and think the bird isn’t really that spicy. Twenty seconds later, though, the heat finally arrives like a delayed detonation from the most sadistic bomber in the world. It’s pretty intense, not for the faint of heart (and taste buds) but great for clearing a blocked nasal passage.”

Rating: 7.8/10

Lorenzo’s Truffle Cream Pasta from Mamou (PHP 375)


Kat says: “Unnecessary parsley garnish notwithstanding, this is still my favorite truffle cream pasta in the Metro. It’s simple and straightforward. I like that it’s still light and subtle, despite the heady combination of cream and truffle oil.”

Rating: 9/10

Ravioli di Carbe from Lombardi’s (PHP 480)


Mikka says: “I remember asking my friend what it tasted like when she took a bite from the first piece, and she answered ‘tastes like siomai’. And lo and behold, it did taste like pork (not even beef!) siomai wrapped in pasta. Thank goodness the rosemary-infused oil was there to save the day.”

Rating: 4/10

Classic Burger from Tropical Hut (PHP 95)


Nico says: “Still my favorite burger when it comes to fast food joints. It’s big, juicy, and tastes real good. The cheese slice may be bland, and they may put mayo on it, but I’d choose it over the champ any day.”

Rating: 8/10

Irish Eggs Benedict with Corned Beef from Malcolm’s Deli (PHP 300)


Pam says: “Hmmm. As an eggs benedict fanatic, this wasn’t the best I’ve ever had, but neither was it the worst (that accolade belongs to another Fort establishment). Minimal hollandaise, passable bread, and awesome corned beef makes for an okay plate, but the hefty price tag put a frown on my previously expression-free face. Not sure how important it is to have your side salad dressed but the leaves here weren’t, and it made me even more sad. Now that I think about this more, I say meh.”

Rating: 4.2/10

Strawberry Kakigori from Mitsuyado Sei-Men (PHP 90)


Serna says: “I wish they served it in a wider bowl, since eating it as is was a bit of a mess (and a waste, with a lot of the ice shards ending up on the table instead of on my spoon). The strawberry syrup was sweetened with a light hand, and quite refreshing, while the vanilla ice cream added a creaminess that went well with the flavored ice.”

Rating: 8/10

      mag gawa ka Angel’s Burger vs Burger Machine vs Minute Burger (buhay pa ba minute burger? highschool pa ata ako nung last ako nakakakita)

      • Nico Goco says:

        may minute burger pa sa may east service road near FTI and Caltex. I think sa may harap ng Pque City Hall din. Pero ang di ko na nakikita yung nagbebenta ng tig sampung piso, yung naglalako sila sa mga bus.

        Sa Antipolo may Devil’s Burger (no joke) buy 1 take 2 (no joke ulit)

      • Robert says:

        Angels Burger at 24 bucks is a steal by anyones standards esp if newly fried yung burger! consume on spot. nuff said.

  5. toolazytoGoogle says:

    I wish you’d add the addresses of these places you go to.

  6. MuSucks says:

    Mu Noodle Bar has really bad food. All of the noodle soups we ordered were very very very salty, as in we couldn’t even finish half of it. Yuck.
