Another year has passed and looking back, though I have to admit that there's quite a lot of misses, there's still a handful of hits that regardless of the price, availability and location, as long as it makes me "elephantly "sufficed, it's a winner in my book! Let's start shall we?
Muncher's Inc.'s Fish and Chips Platter. Munchers Inc.'s version is my Achilles' heel, my creme de la creme, my holy grail in Fish and Chips. I don't think I'd want to try any other Fish and Chips version than this. Serving wise, they just need to maybe put the fish fillets and chips side by side, so the customers can see both immediately, instead of placing the fillets on the bottom. Flavor wise? It's the bomb! They've flavored their chips rightly so, with just the right amount of saltiness. The fish fillet had just the right thickness of breading, it was crunchy outside but soft and moist inside. I love it that the fish isn't dry or funny tasting in any way. Chum and I relished this dish but at the end of our meal, I was begging him to take the last darn fillet, just because I was so darn full.
Author's note: Recently found out that Muncher's Inc. closed so the owners can better prepare for their wedding. When they do go open again, expect me to still be salivating and dreaming about their incomparable fish and chips. :)
Dulcinea's Churros con Chocolate. I felt like I was in a trance, reaching for a crisp churro and dipping it ever so often in the heady, rich, addicting, bittersweet, hot chocolate. Each bite is intoxicating and sends off a happy buzz inside. This is definitely comfort food material, though I doubt I will wait for a long time to have an
excuse opportunity to have another serving and I have no intention of sharing.
Wee Nam Kee's Cereal Prawns. It's divine! You can't see it but there's 4 medium prawns hidden in that mountainous pile of crushed cereals,oats and other stuff that makes it awesome. I realized that this is best eaten with lots of rice because if you just consume it as is, the heady buttery, sweet flavor will give you the umay factor faster.
Chocolat's Death by Tablea. It's like, with each mouthful, I die and go straight to chocolate heaven. I love how moist their cake is. This is one of the few desserts where I know I really do get my money's worth. I simply cannot get over the creaminess of their bittersweet icing, and the subtle crunch the pure cacao slivers give. I can't help but close my eyes and relish each spoonful as it melts and stops my world to a halt, where nothing else matters for the moment. Just me and my cake slice.
CCME Home Made Food Stuff Co.'s Fish in Mayonnaise. The Lapu-Lapu in mayo has got to my favorite out of all the dishes ordered. The fish was moist and flaky plus it jived well with the mayonnaise, plus the diced vegetables and grated cheese aren't for decorations only, as it makes each spoonful more flavorful and add interesting textures to the palate.
Persia Grill's Tehrani Salad. I can forego the salad when dining out but not after tasting Persia Grill's Tehrani Salad. It's the perfect salad with the freshest greens, crisp cucumbers, juicy tomatoes, tangy mangoes, succulent grapes, croutons, and very generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Add to that their rightly concocted Persian dressing that really puts the cherry on top of this must try salad.
Persia Grill's Charbroiled Beef Tenderloin [Taka] Kebab. I thought that I've savored the tastiest and most superior kebab I'll ever encounter in my whole life but I was in for an awesome suprise. I'm gonna chew my words and declare that this has got to be the best beef kebab I have ever devoured to date! It's soft, it's juicy, it's savory and it's everything a beef kebab should be.
Last, but definitely not the least...
Office Packed Sushi. Just place the Japanese seaweed sheet, the shiny part facing down, on your bamboo mat. Add a layer of prepared sushi rice, top it with the fillings of your preference and just roll away! You can even put the wasabi at this part, but I prefer my sushi with lotsa mayo in it. *Diet? Never heard* :)
See, that ain't much! Hope you have also gotten to try one or two on my favorites list. If not, please do give it a try, I guarantee you will fall head over heels addicted as well. Here's to yummier and more unforgettable pig out sessions ahead! :)
