Post Your Photo Thursday

M.I.Y.O. Mondays and now it’s Post Your Photo Thursdays! Since people love to take photos – especially of the food they eat – and share them on their networks, I thought, “Well why not, this is a food website, after all!”

So, here we go. Every Thursday, post a food photo: it can be of what you’re eating, what you want to eat, etc. It can be shot with any device, from a mobile phone, tablet, to a regular camera – point & shoot or SLR. It’s all up to you but it must be YOUR photo, no ripping off of somebody else’s work. And please include a short description. We want to know what it is and where to eat it too, if possible.

Here’s my food photo for this week which I shot with my mobile phone. It’s the Salmon Miso ramen at Ramen Cool. I’m so psyched to have finally made my way to this place after hearing so much about it. As you know, ramen and tonkatsu places abound in Manila and we’re all the better for it.

I liked this ramen well enough. The broth was adequately flavored and the salmon was tender. I just wish there were more noodles. But look at all those veggies, greens and bean sprouts!

    Pork belly?!! I LOVE. I love the pork belly at Nomama and the beef belly from ‘Cue.

  • Isaw. Coupled with a cold glass of buko juice, or alcohol it is our go to snack/pulutan. This comes from the neighborhood grill stand, the best part is you can place big orders in advance, pretty convenient if you’re having inuman sessions or parties at home.

  • where is Ramen Cool? :)

    [Reply]

    Maro Reply:

    Not sure if this is the branch Lori ate at but there’s Ramen Cool at the intersection of West Capitol and East Capitol Drive here in Pasig :) It’s 2 streets away from the office, 3 from my apartment, so it’s one of my go-to places :)

    If you’re familiar with the original Cafe Juanita, it’s quite close to that site.

    That’s the branch I ate in. Do they have any others?

    Hi Ines-
    In Capitolyo. See Maro’s comment in this thread.

  • This is my go-to order at Chuck’s Deli: Martin’s Buffy Salad. Fresh, crisp greens + tart buffalo chicken strips = happy me. :)

    (I actually wanted to post photos of Corner Tree Cafe’s Choco Mousse with Dark Toblerone or La Creperie’s Salidou in keeping with a dessert theme, but the site won’t allow me to upload them. Not sure why. Oh well…)

    Thanks for persisting and posting. Try to keep your photos to 500px or below so that they’ll be easier to upload.

  • Eggwhite Omelette, Q Bistro, Ortigas. Shot using SGS3. Kakaubos ko lang. :))

    As an impassioned lover of eggs, egg white omelets are anathema to me, but this is a nice shot. :p The one at Apt. 1B is also good. What else do they serve at Q Bistro?

    [Reply]

    Paolo Reply:

    Q Bistro at Ortigas was a surprise find for me. It’s beside the Pancake House nearest Oakwood. I got lucky with black tablecloth and a seat near the door. :P

    This egg omelet I tried for the first time earlier and I was impressed. Other dishes they serve (huge servings) that I am a fan of include a rich and salty adobo at mangga risotto, crispy bagnet and their country fried chicken. They also have toblerone cheesecake. :)

    Lori Reply:

    Q Bistro sounds like something worth trying. Thanks for the tip, Paolo!

    Lori, you must try Q bistro’s roast beef buffet every friday!!

    Roast beef??! Did you say roast beef? I’m there! Thanks for the tip.

  • Banana Cream Pie and Roca Cake from Park Avenue Desserts. Taken with my iPad.

    Aji-
    I like the way you shot this picture, it’s almost like you employed some sophisticated filters. Very nice. Did you like Chef Buddy’s Banana Cream Pie? I adore that Roca Cake.

    [Reply]

    Aji Reply:

    Lori,

    I was surprised how velvety but light the pie was. I was sharing it with friends and I think the Roca Cake was jealous of the attention we gave that pie.

    I just used instagram to take the photo since an iPad’s camera is not that great in terms of resolution.

  • Baked scallops from Cebu’s STK (sugba, tula, kilaw). For Php120. Unbelievable.

  • Do drinks count? Having Happy Lemon’s milk tea at Hongkong again is one of the things I’m anticipating with my upcoming trip. Yes, I know there are Happy Lemon branches here but believe me, the milk tea I had at Hongkong was soooo much better.

  • Portobello Mushrooms Canelloni from Va Bene located in the Petron Station in Dasmarinas Village, Makati. Yum! :)

    Lori Reply:

    Wasn’t too happy with Va Bene when I went there but your photo makes me want to give it another chance.

    [Reply]

    Katrina Reply:

    Give it another go, Lori. Va Bene is great! Maybe you ordered the wrong dish? (Every resto has at least one.) Anyway, they change their menu every several months, so it’s worth checking out again. Service is good, too — the owners are very hands-on, making sure the customers are happy and making amends when they’re not. I always appreciate that, as it’s very rare in Manila.

    [Reply]

    Lori Reply:

    Truly, all good reasons for giving it a second chance. Consider me convinced.

  • I know it’s Friday, but we had this last night. :P It also qualifies as a comment for the “where you go for late night eats” post :) Rodics (since 1949)! Tapsilog with extra egg. Tapa tastes like the bastard child of corned beef and tapa.

  • Hi, Lori! Here’s my photo — osso bucco from Cucina Rusticana. Meat and bone marrow make a lethal combination.

    Be still my beating heart! I love meat and bone marrow. Too much. Where is Cucina Rusticana?

    Hi, Lori. Here’s their complete address:
    9531 Akle St. Cor. Kamagong St. San Antonio Village, Makati City

    They also have a Facebook page. It’s such a quaint restaurant, I think.

    And, and, they have this wonderful panna cotta!

    Thanks, Peter S.! And i like this photo of yours.

  • the chocolate waffles with fruits at cafe noriter are just <3. i wasn't feeling up to eating my usual honey bread (really yummy!) or having a kiwi smoothie (heaven in a glass!) so i opted for the waffles. i wasn't too sure about it at first but when we saw it.. wow! and it tasted as good as it looked to!

    Lori Reply:

    Hello, Z!
    This photo is publication-worthy! Where is Cafe Noriter?

    Ms. Lori :) 2nd Flr. Reyes Bldg., Estrada St. cor. Taft Ave. (near DLSU) :D

    z Reply:

    thank you! :D and thank you to u8mypinkcookies (such a cute name!) for giving the address. i never knew the address of cafe noriter. I usually just look for the Tapa King across DLSU. cafe noriter is on the second floor of that building. the stairs up to the cafe is at the side of the building facing Tropical Hut :P oh and if you look closely at the threshold of the entrance to the stairs, you’ll notice something cute :D

  • Lori, have you ever ordered the stuffed lechons from Dedet de la Fuente, or been to one of her Lechon Degustation dinners? I’ve been twice, and at the most recent one, she introduced her newest flavor — Lechon stuffed with Laing Rice! I loved it, as it’s a sure-fire combo. Although it wasn’t my favorite flavor of hers (that would be either the French truffle mushroom rice-stuffed or the German potato & garlic-stuffed), the Laing one would be in my top 3, probably at par with the Binagoongan rice-stuffed. In terms of looks, though, I thought this was the winner — the green rice against the burnished skin was stunning!

    [Reply]

    Lori Reply:

    Stunning photo Katrina, thanks for sharing it. Of course I’ve heard heaps about this wonder of a lechon woman, and have been invited numerous times too, but fate has conspired otherwise. I hope to try this most talked-about lechon this year.

    [Reply]

    Katrina Reply:

    You actually don’t have to wait to be invited for the degustation dinner. If you organize a group of about 15, you can book it whenever you like. That’s how I first got to go. Or, you could just order the lechon/s to go.
