Choi City: New on the Menu

A friend who was invited to try Choi City's new dishes was kind enough to invite me along. She probably needed another mouth to help clean the plates. Whether it was my company or my mouth's ability to clean plates, I am grateful that I was the chosen one.

Before I proceed, a little warning, I am not in the right condition to write about these new dishes because I was too full to truly appreciate this massive dinner (five dishes!)—this was my second dinner that night. (What a pig.) Plus I was never a good food reviewer; I just like to eat. I repeat, this was my second dinner. (Who in his right mind eats two dinners? A pig. Yes, that's me.)

I liked the fried rice but I honestly couldn't recall anything special about it. The olive oil, maybe? That's probably a plus for the health conscious. I think the lapu-lapu fillet with garlic was the best of the five that night. It was the first dish to empty! Tendon chewers, like my father, would probably love the beef tendon hotpot (all tendon and radish). I would rather eat the radish. And ox tripe would please my sister, who likes eating these little towel–like things. The chicken and herbs was okay. 

In the end, a loud burp was in order. Thanks for the second dinner, Choi City! My only regret is that I did not eat this in a hungry state.

To you, dear reader, apologies are in order:
♦ I can't tell you the price of each dish because I don't know. Sorry.
♦ I'm gonna guess the price for each dish is between Php 150 to Php 400. Pretty wide range. Sorry.
♦ I just wasted your time with this very vague "review." Sorry.
