Tuna Salad Bunwich by Dunkin Donuts

Dunkin Donuts was the third food store we have been to here in Iligan last 2 nights ago because it was one of those 24 hours stores and we could extend our talk with friends.

I was not hungry. I did not want to eat. But I know that we had to order since it would be bad for us to use the establishment’s facilities without making them earn. So I was looking for something light and not sweet, and luckily Dunkin Donuts had Bunwich.

I originally ordered for a Chicken Salad Bunwich, unfortunately, they were out of stock. So I ordered the Tuna Salad Bunwich (60 Pesos) and an Orange Punch (30 Pesos) for a drink.

They prepared the order while I paid.

The Bunwich was wrapped which looks rather delicious looking.

But when I opened to see the Bunwich, the bread was already wrinkled which made my appetite neutral since I was not really hungry. Continue reading Tuna Salad Bunwich by Dunkin Donuts

Tuna Garlic Ranch with Cream Cheese Waffle by Famous Belgian Waffle in Iligan City, Philippines

Last night we were walking along Roxas Ave. at the corner of Aguinaldo Extension in Iligan City when we saw a restaurant with a bright light. It read Halal, we decided to check it out and entered the restaurant. Since we had dinner already, heavy food were not that appealing. Then we noticed a stall at the left corner which had beautiful tempting pictures of waffles, Famous Belgian Waffles.

When we approached the counter we saw a sign that says Tuna Garlic Ranch. It had 2 options: Cheddar Cheese (45 Pesos) or Cream Cheese (55 Pesos). We asked the lady inside the stall which was better and she confidently said Cream Cheese. That was what we ordered and their Boston Special Brew Iced Tea (45 Pesos).

Spicy Lechon at the Weekend Night Market of Iligan City, Philippines

I knew that Iligan’s Lechon is one of the best in the country as we have had many lechon delivered to our house in Manila that was cooked on the same day in Iligan City. The effort and the price is worth it just to taste the deliciousness of Iligan’s Lechon in family and friends gatherings.

When I went to Iligan my friends told me that I should try the Weekend Night Market. At the Weekend Night Market I should try the Spicy Lechon.

I’m not really a fan of spicy food as I’m a pretty sweaty person. Since the Weekend Night Market actually happens to be at night and I know that my friends would not unfriend me if they saw how sweaty I can become I decided that we should give it a try.

Brews Almighty in Iligan City, Philippines

I’ve been to Brews Almighty more than any coffee shop in Iligan City during my 20 day stay. I’m a online worker so I needed a fast and reliable internet and an available electric socket for me to be able to work efficiently and Brew’s Almighty has those. But let’s talk about more on their food and some drinks.

Here are some of the food and drinks we have tried during our multiple visits there.

Toffee Coffee (135 Pesos)

It was weirdly hot on my visit in Iligan City that is why I almost always both cold drinks and I liked the Toffee Coffee. It had the right amount of coffee and chocolate. Perfect for the hot weather. Continue reading Brews Almighty in Iligan City, Philippines

B.Bu.Q Barbecue Haus in Quezon Ave. Extension, Iligan City, Philippines

Since I was visiting Iligan, my uncle invited me to have dinner at B. Bu. Q. Barbecue Haus. I knew Iligan knows how to cook up good food and even when we were kids I’ve already loved the taste of barbecue¬†being sold on the side streets of Iligan City.

B. Bu. Q.

When I got to B. Bu. Q. in Quezon Ave. Extension I was glad that it was a decent looking open-air restaurant. The smell is as good and smokey as a barbecue shop gets. Continue reading B.Bu.Q Barbecue Haus in Quezon Ave. Extension, Iligan City, Philippines

The Fruh Cafe in Tibanga, Iligan City, Philippines

On my first day in Iligan City, I asked a good friend of mine to take me to a restaurant where we could have a light dinner. She thought of many restaurants in town and eventually decided that we should try The Fruh Cafe. Somewhere near Iligan Institute of Technology (IIT) in Tibanga.

When I looked at their menu I was glad that the prices were also light on the pocket.

We ordered the following.

  • Seafood Pasta – 95 Pesos
  • Aglio E Olio (Bacon) – 65 Pesos
  • Mango Roll Crepe – 65 Pesos
  • Bananas & Hazelnut Crepe – 59 Pesos

We were just a few customers when we arrived at The Fruh Cafe so our orders were served in about 5-7 minutes.

Seafood Pasta

The Seafood Pasta was good. I was very glad that the shrimps and mussels were visible. The amount was enough for someone who’s looking for a light dinner. The taste was how a seafood pasta should be. A good mix of spices, herbs, oil, pasta, tomato sauce and seafood.

The bread was a bit over-toasted for my taste but it was still a good complement to the seafood pasta. Continue reading The Fruh Cafe in Tibanga, Iligan City, Philippines

Dried Tahong from Puerto Princesa Old Market

I first saw a Daing na Tahong (Dried Mussels) on my visit to Roxas, Palawan last 2009 and for years I have been searching for this delicacy, unfortunately, it was very elusive. But I knew if I keep looking eventually we will meet. That was what happened last April 29, 2015.

Dried Tahong

I was buying cashew nuts in the Old Market of Puerto Princesa City before heading to the airport and accidentally saw the Daing na Tahong being sold by one of the vendors. That day was the day of our fateful meeting.

I bought the Daing na Tahong for 100 Pesos (450 Pesos/kg).

Dried Tahong

He wrapped it in a plastic. And I asked it to be wrapped again in another plastic just to be sure that my bag would not smell funky.

Dried Tahong

The morning the next day in Manila, we fried the Daing na Tahong, just like we do on other daing na isda (Dried Fish) and decided we would cook it well done. I’m not sure though if that was the best way to serve Daing na Tahong.

Dried Tahong

The taste was like how I imagined it to be, dried tahong. The smell was the same as the taste.

Was it good? Let’s just say that my taste buds weren’t very happy about it. But maybe it is an acquired taste? I’ll try getting more experience to see if I could love it like my love for Unsalted Daing na Danggit.

For now I am happy that I have found and tasted the Dried Tahong after 7 years of looking for it.

Dried Tahong

Have you tried Dried Tahong? Do you think I cooked it right? Tell me on the comments below.

Kani Mango Sandwich by Cebu Pacific Air

I was hungry when we boarded the Cebu Pacific Flight from Puerto Princesa to Manila at around lunch time. I’m not a person who’s a fan of buying food from their inflight meals but I was really hungry so I checked their menu and saw the Kani Mango Sandwich for 180 Pesos.

Kani Mango Sandwich

Kani (Crab) and Mango reminds me of California Maki which I really love so it might be a really good idea to order Kani Mango Sandwich. I ordered one along with a Blue Calamansi flavored water.

The flight stewardess arrived and brought the Kani Mango Sandwich in a thin plastic container wrapped in cling wrap. Continue reading Kani Mango Sandwich by Cebu Pacific Air

Durian Shake at Iliganon Cafe & Restobar in Pala-o, Iligan City, Philippines

It was before our Pilates Yoga Session at Aerobic Jazz Fit Dance & Fitness Studio we were walking around Iligan City to burn the many food we ate earlier when we passed by Iliganon Cafe & Restobar at Quezon Ave. Extension. Since I have been missing their Durian Shake due to my last visit to Iligan being many years ago, we decided to try it out before I become too busy again to try it.
