Go! Fan

Ever dreamed of unlimited siomai? chicken feet? fried rice? and Hong Kong style noodles? I discovered a place called Go! Fan in SM North Edsa Annex. They are offering dimsum and roast buffet at P199 ONLY! Their 10-dish buffet is only available Mondays-Fridays, 10:00am-2:00pm and 6:00-9:00pm. Ofcourse, don't expect a premium kind of buffet since it's very cheap, it will just satisfy you with your siomai cravings.

It's fun to go on a Food Trip with friends and eat all those siomais!


During the heat of the summer, I've always wanted something cold to relieve me from the hot weather. And at the same time, have a meal that's cheap and will make me full. At Ersao, you can have everything: delicious food and a freshly blended fruit shake all at P105-P120 only! I would recommend their Spicy Chicken or Spicy Squid rice meal (P105), as well as the Chicken Steak and Pork Steak meal (P120). These meals already come with a 16oz Fruit Shake or Milk Tea. My personal favorite is their Avocado Shake especially when Avocado is in season. I also like their Watermelon Shake and Buko Pandan Shake. In their milk tea variants, I like the Taro Milk Tea or the Coffee Milk Tea.

Ersao has branches in Manila (Abad Santos cor. P. Algue Street), Quezon City (West Avenue and Banawe Street), and SM Sta. Mesa. A simple Food Trip that you would always go back to...Ersao!

Tasty Dumplings

The BEST Porkchop Rice I ever tasted is from Tasty Dumplings! A thinly sliced porkchop that's mouth watering and incomparable! The best part is it is only P99 and it's like eating for two meals already. Tasty Dumplings originated in Binondo area then branched out to Retiro, Quezon City.

If you grew up in the vicinity of Binondo, Tondo and Sta. Cruz, Manila, I am sure that you also grew up craving for this amazing Porkchop Rice. They also serve different Chinese dishes but the Pork Chop rice is their best seller. Tasty Dumplings is always full especially during lunch and dinner time. So, if you want to go on a Food Trip, go there early to save some seats and you'll have an amazing meal!

Kopi Roti

Most coffee shops in the Philippines are very pricey. If you only have P100, and you want to unwind in a coffee shop, Kopi Roti is the place to be. At P85, you already have a coffee bun and cup of coffee or tea. The ambiance is cozy plus the aroma of the freshly baked coffee's just perfect! In Metro Manila, they have 9 branches (Quezon City, Pasay City, Parañaque City, and Makati City) and 6 branches in the province.

Food Trip in a relaxing way with a reasonable price and tasty treat...Kopi Roti!

Mister Kebab

Mister Kebab has been one of my all time favorite restaurants. It is located along West Avenue, Quezon City. Although it has no air conditioning, people from different places still keep on coming back to satisfy their Persian cravings.

My personal favorite is the Keema (ground beef) with Buttered Rice mixed with their special garlic sauce. If I'm really hungry, I would also order their Pita Bread. Their Sweet Yogurt Shake would complement the meal. All in all, this big meal will cost only about P145 and would get you going for the next hours. So the next time you're on for a different Food Trip, you might want to consider Mister Kebab!

Jay-Jay's Inasal

When you go to a chicken inasal restaurant, you'd always order the usual chicken inasal. However, at Jay-Jay's Inasal, there's more to the grilled chicken. Jay-Jay's Inasal is located at Home Depot, Pasig City and it also has branches in Macapagal Highway and Tomas Morato...however, I think there are other branches around the metro. My friend and I went there to eat their 2-Way Adobo and it's really good! It has that salty Visayan style of pork adobo with flakes and it is best paired with plain rice because of the sauce. The price is very reasonable and it's good for 2-3 people. So the next time you go on a Food Trip at Jay-Jay's Inasal, better consider their 2-Way Adobo and your meal will never be the same!

Causeway Dimsum Night

All of a sudden, you get hungry. Yet, there's nothing in your fridge or counter top and it's almost 9pm. If you live in Quezon City, nothing to worry! Causeway (Banawe cor. Del Monte) offers P45 per order of Dimsum every night!

Better go there a bit earlier to save seats because it is always jam packed when the clock strikes 9:00pm. Parking space will always be a problem but fortunately, valet service is available. So, the next time you and your friends want a traditional push-cart dimsum night, this is a place to be on your next Food Trip!

Chicken Charlie

Craving for chicken with a price lower than Hooters? This is a place to be. Chicken Charlie is located in NS Amoranto St. (Retiro) Quezon City. If coming from D. Tuazon, just go straight and cross Banawe. Chicken Charlie will be on your right side. There are limited parking spaces and since the restaurant is small, they can accommodate only about 12 people.

Their chicken is so tasty that you would crave for it! A fried chicken like no other! Crispy, sweet, thin breading without the guilt because it's 0g trans-fat. Since they serve their chicken fresh from the kitchen, it is recommended to call them first before you go because the preparation time would take about 15-20 minutes.

The price, it's ok. Although it's kinda pricey for a chicken wing and leg, I guarantee that it's worth going back for another Food Trip!
