Identical Ramen Bowls in Today’s Pepper Eats!

October 16, 2018

Pepper Eats is our weekly photo-journal featuring the food we stuffed in our mouths.

Ajitama Tonkotsu from Ikkoryu Fukuoka Ramen (PHP 380)


Addi says: “The marinated half-boiled egg was a pleasant surprise. The dish had more garlic and oil than I would’ve preferred, however.”

Diner’s rating: 7/10

Cinnamon-Glazed Bacon Skewers from I Love Backyard BBQ (PHP 165)


Diana says: “Didn’t taste like cinnamon at all, and the bacon was too soggy for my liking.”

Diner’s Rating: 5/10

Lettuce Wrapped Burger from Charlie’s Grind and Grill (PHP 290)

Dwight's Lettuce Wrapped Burger

Dwight says: “It was closer to a salad than a burger, but I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it.”

Diner’s Rating: 7/10

Buffalo Wings (5 pieces) from Don Henrico’s (PHP 560)


Lars says: “Too big to be from real chickens. I suspect baby raptors.”

Diner’s Rating: 9/10

Angus Ribeye USDA Prime Grade Steak (Medium) from Mamou (PHP 1,780)


Mikka says: “For the first time, Mamou has failed to impress. The steak was packed with more fat than meat, and it was more on the rare side than medium. What a bloody mess.”

Diner’s Rating: 5.5/10

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders (1/2 pound) from Buffalo Wings and Things (PHP 144)

Mye's Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders

Mye says: “Though I’d still prefer their chicken wings over the tenders, they do garlic parmesan better than most!”

Diner’s Rating: 8/10

Miso Tonkotsu from Ikkoryu Fukkuoka Ramen (Php 380)


Adee says: “It’s very tasty and satisfying, but I wish I ordered the Ajitama Tonkotsu instead. The miso seems to be working against the natural flavors of the broth. It could also use a bit more chashu.”

Diner’s Rating: 8/10

Deconstructed Tiramisu from Umami Hambaagu House (PHP 180)


Nico says: “Was disappointed since the concept was promising. The flavors were there, but the texture felt like you were eating a soupy Tiramisu.”

Diner’s Rating: 5/10 (Mom’s rating: 9/10, so good job Umami for making her happy last Mother’s Day!)

Vigan Longganisa Hash from The Clubhouse (PHP 225)


Steph says: “Makes me want to schedule a road trip to Vigan.”

Diner’s rating: 9/10

Yoga from Bizu (PHP 165)


Giselle says: “With the tangy flavors of passion fruit and yogurt at the forefront of this fruity creation, it’s the perfect summer cake.”

Diner’s Rating: 8.5/10

  1. Oh, it’s on, Adee De Leon.

  2. Mamou’s ribeye was swimming in either oil or its juice.
