Mister Kabab

I was craving for some lambchops and saw a  Mister Kabab restaursnt at Shell residence Mall of Asia.

The store opens up at 10 am and I arrived 30 minutes early. Waited at a nearby convenience store.

I am the first customer to come in. The place looks neat and spacious.

I ordered sizzling lambchops and to my disapointment it is not available.

So as an alternative I ordered the special chelo kabab @ php 300.00

Iced tea @ php 40.00

Served with rice with butter and grilled tomato. The taste is good but not that great compared to the lambchop.

Price - 6/10
Taste- 7/10

Buffalo's wings and things

After work, decided to grab something to eat and went to Buffalo's wings and things.

Spicy chicken wings served with a  sauce of  different level of hotness.I decided to take on the Wingsanity challenge, the hottest of them all. A staff warned me, she said I should  try first the Armageddon to gauge if I can stand the heat of the Wingsanity.

Half pound of wings served with dirty rice
Wings with Armageddon sauce
All wiped out

So I got the Home run meal package B, half pound of wings served with a cup of dirty rice( mexican style) and iced tea. It's deliciously good and not that hot. was able to finish it in less than 15 min. And still wanting for more.

The meanest of all. Wings with Wingsanity sauce
A signed waiver is required before taking the wingsanity chalenge

I ordered the homestyle B with the wingsanity sauce. I was asked first to sign a waiver. I am able to finish 2 pieces of wings untill the ordeal begun. I had watery eyes, nose dripping, flushed face, sweat all over my face. It is so hot ! I  asked for an ice cold glass of water. Slowly worked my way to my last piece. The last bite is always the hardest. This is rated 1,000,000 SHU !


Finished my meal in less than an hour. Relaxed for a few minutes and I was given a certificate of completion.

A discount card
Meal packages to choose from
A place in the wall of flame
My bill

If asked to do the Wingsanity challenge again? A big no!

Jariels Peak Revisited

If you are a motorcycle rider or a mountainbiker you have probably heard Jariels Peak . A restaurant located in Tanay and Quezon border.  Going here is all straight up passing the marilaque highway comming from Marikina. I really do enjoy riding here because of the scenic route and the cool breeze from the mountain

A foggy morning

Jariels peak is at around the 90km mark. If you are looking for exotic food , then come .

Arrived at around 8am, I'am the first customer to arrived. And went around and took some pictures.

The camping ground and cottage house

A few bikers arrived after 30min.

The menu

I asked what's in the menu, the staff said that it is rabbit and lamb. And still preparing the bulalo (beef shank broth). So I ordered lamb adobo served on a sizzling platter. 

At Php 140.00

The lamb adobo is very tasty and delicious combined with egg is a breakfast of champions.
