Introducing Pepper Eats: A Photo-Journal of Stuff We Put in Our Mouth

September 14, 2018

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

Crab Roe Xiao Long Bao from Lugang (Php 188)

Dwight says: “The iPhone of Manila’s dumpling scene.”

Eater’s rating: 9/10

Creamy Anchovy Garlic Fondue from Mad for Garlic

Mylene says: “It was a bit underwhelming as the small serving of cream tasted nothing like anchovy and lacked the right amount of garlic I was looking for.”

Eater’s rating: 4/10

Regal Red Velvet Designer Pancake from Pancake House (Php 218)

Kat says: “Good, but too rich. It didn’t look like the one on the picture at all since it was falling/sliding in reality.”

Eater’s Rating: 6/10

Chicken ala Xocolat from Xocolat Katipunan (Php 275)

Mikka says: “The white chocolate sauce was too sweet and overwhelming, giving this dish a dessert-feel (which is weird since you’re eating it with rice). It tasted better with the cheese sauce on the side, but it became too rich. Points for the potato gratin, though!”

Eater’s Rating: 5/10

Sugar-Frozen Strawberries Wrapped in Rice Paper from China’s streets (Php 80)

Addi says: “Perfect combo of acidity (strawberries) and sweetness (sugar glaze) melting in your mouth, as the rice paper adds an interesting texture to every bite.”

Eater’s Rating: 10/10

  1. I tried the Chicken ala Xocolat once, I couldn’t finish it. It was sweet on sweet and carbs on carbs. Nakakaumay.

  2. Lugang dumpling is best dumpling

  3. I tried to order the Red Velvet Pancakes at Pancake House, but apparently this dish has been placed on hold by the management indefinitely.

    Addi, I hated you for a split second when I saw your strawberry photo. 🙁 And it’s so cheap! And sugar-frozen!?!?!?! And rice paper (okay, I’ll stop now)!!!!!!!
