First time experience
I've been craving for this for few weeks now because of the enticing post of the people I follow in Instagram. The nearest branch in my location is the one in Lucky Chinatown.

Ambiance
The place is small but because of fewer people in the place, it's just enough space for a dessert cafe. If you're going to compare it to DQ, it's difinitely bigger in most of their branches that I've been to.

You can feel the Korean setting simply because of the menu that are in written in Korean with English translation of course. Even their logo. Duh, it originates from Korea after all.

There are couple of hugable giant teddy bears but if you look closely, you won't hug them. Dirty looking.

Taste
Honesty, I expect it to be sweet. I mean, everything should be sweet, heller, it's a dessert. To my dismay, it's not. It's like, you're just eating a crushed ice with cheese or choco brownies on it. But to be fair, I like the mango. It is the only sweet among the three. Sweet with a little bit sour but it's okay. I like the way it is.

Verdict: 2.5 out of 5.0
Cheese - 2.0
Mango - 4.0
Choco Brownies - 1.5

It's not about the food anyway, it's about the bonding experience. We can't do this often. But when we do, it must be worth to remember.

First Bonding @ Kuya J

May 11, 2017
Kuya J, 3rd Level, Lucky Chinatown Mall Annex, Binondo, Manila

Our original plan was just to try Kuya J's famous Halo-halo. But since we're hungry already, so why not eat first? We ordered Danggit RiceDilis Salted Egg RiceSinigang Na Baboy and Humba. As expected, the foods were great except the 3 piece Danggit because I think it was not cook. I don't know. I'm no expert but my taste buds says so.

Anyways, we're here because of Halo-halo for PHP109.00 and all I can say is WOW! This is so far the best Halo-halo for me. I've never tried anything like this before. I highly recommend this to all who love Halo-halo but haven't tried this.

The best part of get-together like this was the laughtrip. To the point na ayaw mo ng tumawa dahil nauutot ka. Jahe. Definitely I would not forget this moment. Ung tipong napapayuko ka nalang at inaamoy ang paligid baka sobrang baho ng nilabas mo na hindi kaaya-ayang hangin (so gross). Hayz

Binagoongang Baboy and Ginataang Monggo of Kuya J

November 5, 2015
Kuya J, Upper Ground Floor, SM Megamall Bldg A, EDSA, Mandaluyong City

I think Kuya J is the fastest chain restaurant in the country today. Kuya J opens in Metro Manila only this year. I heard they already have 18 branches and still growing. I tried to look in the web if they have a website but I think they don't have yet. Maybe soon.

We ordered Binagoongang Baboy and Ginataang Monggo. To be honest I don't like the Ginataang Monggo. It tasted like panis (musty). Maybe because of the ginataan (coconut milk). But I love the Binagoongang Baboy. One word, heaven!

What I like here:
- The place is nice. Looks wide even its not because of the mirror effect.
- The waiters are courteous and smile a lot.
- The taste of the food Binagoongang Baboy is heaven.
- Reasonable price.

What I don't like here:
- Long line. (Maybe because they're just new).
- They serve longer than you thought. You gave your order in advance during the line but they'll process your food only if you're inside. I can't help it but compare to 's 50Diner in Baguio City which is when you enter inside, they're ready to serve your order already.

SuTuKil in Lapu-Lapu Shrine

July 24, 2015
Lapu-Lapu Shrine, Punta Engaño, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, Philippines

SuTuKil (Sugba, Tuwa, Kilaw), I don't really know the exact translation in English, but I know them coz this is my native tongue, let's try this.. Sugba (Grilled), Tuwa (Stewed) and Kilaw (Raw). This is the must-try recommendation of our Safety Manager AEG here in Cebu before going to Cebu City.

The location of the restaurant is not very welcoming coz you need to pass thru a narrow pathway inside the souvenir shops. The outside looks of the restaurant itself is not pleasing too. Oh, come on, am I going to be disappointed here? There's a lot of fresh sea-foods to choose from in front of you. When the lady start mentioning the prices of PHP200+ to PHP500+ with additional cooking charges in every menu. Again, whaaat? This is it, I'm totally disappointed. Oh no, its very expensive.

Because of the expensive prices, they only ordered 2 menus, sinigang na isda and adobong hipon. Are our orders even represents to SuTuKil? I guess not. LOL! Sorry guys.
To be honest, the taste of the foods were so delicious. The disappointment became awesome. Oh by the way, before I forgot, the inside of the restaurant has second floor and half open to see the view of the sea. By that time, it was low tide, so all we saw was thousands of suga-suga aka crablets.

The bill was PHP1,203.00, that includes 5 bottled water. Because we can't pull out PHP3 right ayaw, the waiter offered not to pay the 3 pesos. UHmazing.
