The Latest From McDonald’s Philippines: McRib Sandwich, Apple Pie a la Mode, and Waffle Cones

The return of the McRib

Barbecue-flavored piece of pork sandwich

That was how Wikipedia described the not-so-new offering to us, a group of hungry kids uninitiated to the McRib.

The key t...

Explorin’ Kapitolyo: Rub Ribs, Silantro Fil-Mex, and Tomahawk Chops and Grill

Beef Nachos and Lamb Chops at Silantro Fil-Mex, Kapitolyo Pasig

I find myself frequenting the streets of Kapitolyo at least once a week, in an attempt to destress from the frustrations at work. It also helps that it’s conveniently near my workplace, and when the opportunity (and wallet) allows, I get to go on a binge! While Kapitolyo is a famous go-to for great food, it’s still a mix bag of restaurants, and some days, you’re just not as lucky to choose a restaurant that is not at par with your personal favorites. Our current success rate is at 75%, a 1:4 chance of trying out a restaurant which we’ll later on learn that it’s one we’ll never come back to in the near future. Which restaurants am I talking about?
