First bite of the Sisig Burrito

It's the Sisig Bowl (minus the egg), wrapped in a toasted tortilla.



Masarap naman, may anghang at lasang sisig naman kahit papaano. Ang konti lang. Parang yung gitna lang yung may laman. Yung isang dulo, puro mayo. Yung kabila naman, aba, may buto! Para kaming nagago.






Try it and judge for yourself.

UPDATE (15 August 2017)

So this happened. 

Over the weekend, I wrote about my experience with the Sisig Burrito of KFC Philippines. I then Shared my post on KFC's Facebook page. Someone from the company read it and asked for my contact details and some info about what I experienced.



Now, earlier this afternoon, a KFC branch manager called me and apologized (my burrito had chicken bones). She added that she reviewed the CCTV footage of the area where my food was prepared and saw nothing wrong or untoward. Nevertheless, she had a Sisig Burrito delivered to my house as a way of saying sorry.



There is no issue about taste (I find the Sisig Burrito delicious). But compared to the one I had over the weekend, the newly delivered burrito is more packed, teeming with filling. And this makes me wonder about KFC's consistency: 

Kailangan pa bang magreklamo para makakain ng mas "maayos" na produkto? 

Just a thought. 

And thank God, no more chicken bones inside!

Quick bite of the Garlic Butter Roast

It's roast chicken that's served with a garlic butter sauce.



The chicken is juicy and moist. It's a little too zesty though. The sauce is oily but not buttery. It's not garlicky either. It has a woodsy, earthy flavor. The marble potatoes in the sauce are fork-tender and delicious.

The flavors are OK, just not "garlic" and "butter."



By the way, this is not a new flavor from Kenny Rogers. They've offered a "Garlic Butter Chicken" before, the flavors of which are oddly similar to this "Garlic Butter Roast." Don't believe us? Click here.

Is Kenny Rogers fooling the public? Maybe.

Try the dish and judge for yourself.

First slurp of the Spicy La Paz Batchoy

A new instant noodle soup concoction by Lucky Me.



It's quite good. The heat doesn't overpower the meaty La Paz batchoy flavor. There's a good mix of spicy, salty, and slightly sweet. Plus, the noodles are of high quality, staying firm despite the hot broth.



Perfect this rainy season!

Quick sip of the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

The Cold Brew of Starbucks just got sweeter, with the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew!



It's the ice-cold coffee flavored with the coffee shop's own vanilla sweet cream concoction. The result? A bold drink with the right complementary sweetness and smoothness. Delicious!

First sip of the Açaí Mixed Berry Yogurt Frappuccino

A new Frappuccino mix from Starbucks.

It's a yogurt drink with açaí pearls and topped with milk foam.



The yogurt has a "medicinal" taste, almost like the colds syrup Dimetapp. Also, the açaí flavor of the pearls is too diluted to be fully enjoyed. 

Sayang sa pera.

A Tall order costs Php 175.

First bite of the Quorn Meat-Free Nuggets

They're nuggets made with Mycoprotein, a meat-free protein source produced by fermentation.



The nuggets don't taste bad. They taste close to the usual nuggets, meaty but not as salty. The texture is also similar to that of chicken nuggets, plump and juicy.



All in all, not bad.

A pack costs Php 99.

Try them and judge for yourself.

First sip of the Granola Dark Mocha Frappuccino

A new concoction from Starbucks.


It's the Dark Mocha Frap topped with milk froth and granola. Not much different from the Dark Mocha Frap in terms of taste and texture. The granola just adds some crunch. It tastes good though, with its cereal-y and fruity flavors.

Tip: go Half Pump on the syrup.

A Tall order costs Php 175.
