Worldbex 2017 x Shawarma sa Buendia

We went to Worldbex 2017 today at the World Trade Center in Pasay City kasi feeling namin mas maraming good stuff dun than the one at SMX, MOA. By good stuff, I mean chiks. Joke. Worldbex stands for World Building and Construction Exposition which is held every year in the country for more than a decade now. So basically, exhibition sya ng various companies and their products from different parts of the world. Do I sound very excited for this event? Because I’m honestly not, sakto lang. Ayoko lang mahuli sa latest buzz of our industry.

Ang weird pala ng feeling kapag nakasalubong mo yung dati mong schoolmates tapos di ka nila matandaan, si Gene lang yung natatandaan nila. Ganun ba ako ka-lame? ­čśé Anyway, dahil dadaan kaming Buendia, we decided to have this shawarma we’ve been hearing good in that place. Gene, Odet and I did a menial food review sesh again we’ve called The Hungry Cheapmunks. Coz we’re hungry, and we’re cheap (and judgmental). ­čśé

1st of all, I just wanna tell that shawarma is one of my favorites. I love the greasy beef, the onions, the tomatoes, the pipino and its creamy-savory-spicy sauce combo. The place is called Master’s Shawarma Station. So pagdating namin dun, mejo napa-“ay, eto lang pala yun” ako. Pero bumungad yung malaking beef na naka-hang, ngayon lang ako nakakita ng ganun kalaki para sa shawarma. ­čśé We all ordered the one with rice, and the crews were quite fast on their service kahit ang daming customers, di ako nainip.

For Php60.00, ok naman yung dami ng serving, tapos sabi ni Gene unli sauce daw dun. At dahil balasubas kami, sinabaw namin yung sauce na parang KFC gravy. Hahaha! Joke, si Gene lang po.┬á­čśť The generous sauce from this place (yung white & yung orange, whatever they’re made up of) pulled its score up from the typical shawarma carts I’ve tried before. Napasabi ako ng “ang shwarap ng shawarma wrap!”

Overall, I give it a 9/10 (so ako lang talaga yung nag-judge). May tendency na maumay yung tao sa sauce nila, pero kasalanan na ng tao yun.

We Tried Indian Food

03-17-2017

Every after payday, my office friends and I try to at least make it a point that we have our happy break from work. One of our favorites is eating out together because it’s very convenient when you don’t have plenty of time. Last week, I learned that there are Indian carinderias┬ánearby┬áour office which is located in Brgy. Bangkal, Makati City. By nearby, I mean walkable. The longer I stay here, the more I realize┬ána hipster tong lugar na to. Wala sya sa┬áMakati CBD so yung businesses dito, maliliit at never-heard but of commendable quality because the market is still of average to high income┬áprofessionals.

We had 2 Indian carinderias in our option, so we first checked out the nearer one. Feeling ko bago lang sya kasi dumadaan naman ako sa lugar na to pero ngayong gabi ko lang sya nakita. It’s called Rakhi Ka Dhaba, whatever the spelling is. Para syang 2-car garage na ginawang kainan. When we checked out the menu which was written on a chalkboard, we didn’t get that excited because there were only few items to choose from. Actually parang wala ngang choice eh, that whole menu could be a 1-set meal for a single head, tapos di pa namin alam kung ano yung mga yun or at least idea because there weren’t any┬áimages around. We of course asked what kind of food are those, but kuya only┬ágave us generic anwers like “tinapay po yan,” “gulay po yan,” or “chicken po yan.” Mga ganun. So we decided to check out the other one muna.

So the other one is along Osme├▒a Hwy. Mejo malayo from the first one but we immediately had smiles when we saw it. It’s in bright orange and curvy details with the signage Incredible India (Indian Food Depot). Pagpasok namin, amoy pa lang we knew it’s legit. Ako I’m genuinely happy with the whole set-up, di ko lang sure yung mga kasama ko. Para syang Mini Stop with few seats for dine-in customers, tapos lahat sa paligid Indian products. Meron pa ngang cd’s ng Indian movies, di ko sure kung binebenta nila pero I guess┬áthey play it on the TV inside. Old and bulky pa yung tv, ang cute. At that time patay yung TV and they were just playing local songs instead, sayang dagdag indian vibes sana.

I wasn’t able to bring my cam so di ko mapakita. When choosing what food to eat, I opted for the ones I have no idea. Can’t remember the exact names but it’s a masala and a vegetable rice for a total of Php135.00. Ang inorder nung dalawa kong kasama, chicken curry and rice (eh di sana nag-pinoy carinderia na lang? joke). Nakalimutan ko kung anong name nung inorder ni Gene.

Nagtikiman kami ng isa’t-isa, este ng foods namin (sobrang corny). Masarap naman yung kanila┬ápero may pagkalasang de lata, yung feeling mo may preservatives? Concern rin pala nila in the first place na puro microwavable yung foods kasi nga para lang syang convenience store, they were expecting something na freshly cooked ata. So generally, mukhang di sila nasiyahan sa experience nila. Hahaha! Pero ako I swear I loved it by heart. Gusto ko kasi ng mga pagkain na bago para sakin┬áno matter how awful it maybe.┬áNasarapan ako sa food ko, pero I don’t know if you could trust me because I haven’t had anything like that to compare with,┬áalso, di ako choosy sa food.

I bought and took out packed pita breads before we got out. Actually di ko alam kung pita breads yun, wala kasi akong maintindihan sa nakasulat sa package, basta mukha syang pita breads.
