Now this is a photo that I need to keep away from Boo otherwise she’ll want me to decorate her instant noodles in the same way.
Week 3’s “What’s Your Favorite Cheap Eat?” DiscOVIries by Nokia winner is: Riz Ong for her photo, “Yakisoba!” (exclamation point hers).
I knew that there would be a proliferation of instant food in last week’s contest for “What’s Your Favorite Cheap Eat?” But I didn’t expect to be at turns, delighted, amused, and sometimes, bemused at what can be bought for P50 or less. There were lots of snacks that evoked stabs of nostalgia (iced gems), envy (Le Ching’s cookies; why have I never tried those?), and awe (pinagong smothered in coco jam).
But Riz’s entry takes the cake.
Her description of her cheap eat:
My “cheap” eat would have to be instant yakisoba. it’s easy to prepare( + points for people like me who can’t cook ), filling and tasty! I always add a boiled egg, with the yolk still moist, to balance out the saltiness and spice. It’s not the healthiest food around but it instantly satisfies my cravings. When i have some spare time, i try to make my meals cute too. It feels more rewarding that way and makes it extra delish.
Price: around Php25.00 w/ the egg
Riz: Please email me so that I can give you the details regarding the claiming of your prize.
Thanks so much to all of you who joined DiscOVIries Week 3! I look forward to seeing the photos for Week 4: What’s Your Favorite Cookie?
