Not-So-Chic



Pork Sisig


Balamban Liempo

Turon with caramel syrup


Chic-Boy

I've been meaning to eat in this resto for the longest time but most branches are out of the way. Then one day, we noticed a sign that says "Opening Soon!" We ended up dining at the resto one Sunday evening after our mall-stroll. I was thinking of ordering chicken but decided against it since I wanted to taste the balamban liempo which a lot of people seem to rave about. So what's the big deal? Is it as yummy as my homemade balamban liempo? Of course not. Really. I find Chic-Boy's very oily and not as flavorful. Also, the portion that was given to us was a bit burnt. Not crispy, but burnt. After the initial disappointment, my heart literally leapt for joy when I tasted the vinegar served with the liempo. Two thumbs up! The sisig was okay, though. But not that memorable. And the turon. Hmmmm ... I was expecting to be blown away but it turned out that I was driven away. It looked okay when it was served to us but when I tasted it, it was a reheated version of turon. Nuked!

So our Chic-Boy experience didn't turn out great. Maybe the stars were not in a lucky position when we ate there. However, you'd have to literally drag me back to eat there again.

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.
