Sawang-sawa na ako sa mga "established" restaurants! Problema kasi sa mga resos dito sa atin pagsumikat na ang establishment, at dumarami na ang branches, ang kalidad ng produkto nila bumabagsak na!

Example: Triple V restos, Gloriamaris, Hapchang, Dencio's, Gerry's Grill, tia maria, Yellow Cab...

Ayaw ko na rin sa mga restos na "sell out" meaning hindi authentic ang pagkain nila, o kaya'y kinokompromisa nila ang kalidad, o SUPOT lang talaga chef nila!

Example: Tempura, Teriyaki Boy, Saisaki, Chowking, Little Asia, Pho Hoa....

Kaya hanap ko na lang ngayon mga holes-in-the-wall, kung hindi mga di sikat pero masarap talaga ang food.

Example: schwarzwalder, Old Swiss Inn, Jerusalem, Kikufuji at yung maliit na puwesto sa former-Ultra sa Pasig na sisig ang specialty.

Share niyo naman dito mga ibang lugar na ganito!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

hoping not to tresspass on anyone's authority but just to air my opinion,

tasty is and will never be authentic. their noodles are served with kiamchay (salty vegetable) when the original calls for muichay(a kind of sweet vegetable). their dumplings dont have the ginger taste when the authentic taiwanese standard calls for it. their noodles are thick and flat out overcooked, losing its chewiness. more authentic ones are mien san and chia sian law in adriatico (recently closed but reopened with a new name also along adriatico)

whether its authentic or not doesnt really matter as long as the taste appeals to you and it gets you full and satisfied. :)

bro bluechips,
tama ka, aysees ang pangalan nung luag sa may dating ultra. sarap talaga ng sisig nila. idadagdag ko rin ang "rsm" - isang chain ito ng restos sa laguna at cavite na parang carinderia at inuman. masarap ang sisig nila- yun lang nga, nilalagyan nila ng isang malaking kutsarang mayonnaise sa ibabaw ng sisig. kung mahilig ka sa mayo baka trip niyo ito, kung hinde, patanggal mo na lang.

jerusalem restaurant ay nasa ermita. sa del pilar yata. daming arabyano kumakain dito, siguro masmaganda subukan mo mga iba't ibang items nila sa menu. halos lahat ng nakain ko doon masarap.

imho, sang-ayon din ako kay atong ang. di ko nagustuhan ang tasty. noong bago siya, at isa lang ang puwesto niya sa may retiro masarap siya. pero nung kumalat na siya, sinundan na niya ang yapak ng mr. poons.

idagdag ko lang:
merong isang maliit na thai carinderia sa may gabi ng pwu. di ko alam ang pangalan pero okay dito. (sorry ha, mahina ako sa pangalan eh).

japanese- wala na siguro tatalo sa kikufuji (makati) lalo na sa lunch menu niya. yung owner/chef nito, si claude, ay isang hapon na surfer. at halos araw-araw ang dating ng isda nila.

cafe uno- masarap din nga dito. limited lang nga ang menu. at meron silang duck pate na ok na binebenta sa bote.

noodles- na-mention ko ito sa kabilang thread, at dinagdagan din ni atong ang, masarap sa mien san sa gilmore. taiwanese style!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Bluechips, yung Schwarzwalder nasa may Atrium na yata, corner Makati Ave. and Paseo de Roxas.

Ok sa Uno. The food's great and the atmosphere isn't pretentious.

Japanese food? Sushi-ya sa Morato din. Vietnamese? Subukan nyo sa Saigon Best, near Sulo Hotel in QC. Middle eastern food? Mr. Kabab (aka Persia House) in the Delta area, also in QC.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

jerusalem is in mh del pilar, ermita just before taste of l.a.

1st branch of tasty is in masangkay street binondo, 2nd was banawe near shakey's, 3rd was gandara binondo and the last was wilson branch. in between, the banawe branch transferred to retiro and the gandara branch has closed down.
this is different from mr. poon's situation as all branches are company-owned and owner has other business interests and doesnt need the money.

as to the noodles, there are many kinds of noodles used in soup, the most common being the egg noodle. other variations are flat noodle, hofan, hand-pulled noodle, knife-sliced noodle, misua, bihon, sotanghon. the qualities most desired in noodles are chewiness, firmness, and soup absorbtion. one should be able to taste the soup by just eating the noodles. there has to be a little pressure applied by the teeth to bite off noodles. noodles should preferably spring back a little when stretched and bitten off. hand-pulled noodles can be found at meylin. knife-sliced noodles are found in taiwan and china. a dough is formed and sliced with a knife directly into a boiling tub of water. tasty uses flat noodles but the best of this type of noodle belongs to mien san and eng lay hiong in ongpin beside eng bee tin (closed down last year but part owners are people from tramway)

kikufuji ay nasa mini-japantown sa tabi ng makati cinema square sa pasong tamo. katabi niya ang shinjuku. punta ka diyan tanghali sa weekday para makaupo ka.

meron akong nadiskubreng masarap na pancit habhab- tuwing linggo merong open market sa lung center sa may qc circle, at sa isang stall doon ay may isang babae na taga-lucban na nagbebenta ng habhab (P10 per order lang!) nagbiyabiyahe talaga siya galing quezon para magbenta. ewan ko lang kung nandun siya ngayong linggo.

plowed99,
ano tsibog sa thram's?
