I am writing this after waking up from a food coma.
It was a big week for us. Did back to back events starting Thursday all the way until Saturday night. While it was fun, enjoyable and full of laughter, CJ and I decided that Sunday will be rest day because we remembered we’re not in our 20s anymore.
Sunday is Legaspi Market Day. We went to get our usual staples – wagyu shawarma and takoyaki balls. We had excellent sugarcane juice on ice which was fantastic for the noon summer heat. Then we got to Peter’s stall. Peter is one of CJ’s friends from the F&B industry and he was selling Pierogis. It was the first time I ever had these Polish dumplings, and they come in excellent savory and sweet flavors. Peter serves them hot and fresh.
My favorite would have to be the Potato Onions and Cheese. CJ liked the Mięsne or Classic Meat. And OF COURSE we had to taste all the desserts. My pick is the Chocolate with Himalayan Pink Salt.
So after stuffing ourselves with the polish dumplings, we headed to watch Kid Kulafu which was a fail since it didn’t have subtitles. Only Filipino words CJ knows are “talaga” “kulit” “lambing” “sira ulo” and some Filipino-Spanish words…therefore, we went to Hole-In-The-Wall, in Century City Mall.
Another delicious find was Mr. Delicious’ Pastrami Sandwich and the Smoky Bastard Wheat Ale – microbrew. To be fair I shared the sandwich with CJ, which came with a hefty side of sweet potato and yam chips. And Mr. Delicious, Jeremy, and his wife Jen sent over a bowl full of kettlecorn bacon — this one you just can’t stop eating. Smoky Bastard is the only stall in Hole-In-The-Wall that serves beer and cocktails. All are craft beers, mostly local. I am looking forward to tasting his own brew which he says will be available in a few months.
After 3 servings of the light wheat ale, we finally called it a day.
Next time you want to food trip, check out Polish Pierogis at Legaspi Sunday Market, or Mr. Delicious and Smokey Bastard at Hole-In-The-Wall.
I will now deliver my food babies… buuuurp.
