Do Quesadillas Really Need To Be This Oily?

Day 109 – Tequila Reef Angeles City

Quesadilla, P245
Quesadilla, P245

Worked all day and ended up heading out for food around 11pm. Unfortunately it’s nearly impossible to find an open restaurant at that time in most places in the Philippines. Luckily for me, I live in a touristy/nightlife mecca in Angeles City, so there’s plenty of options in the red light district of Balibago.

I wanted Mexican so I hit up Tequila Reef. They also have a location in Pattaya. Was craving a quesadilla so I ordered a mixed chicken and beef quesadilla. On top of that I ordered 12 pieces of the mini tacos – four pork, four beef, and four chicken.

Day 107 – Wala

The only thing I have in my notes for Day 107 is that I spent money at the sari-sari store, so that must mean I didn’t leave the hood at all.

Money Spent – P170/$3.95

Day 108 – Pampang’s Public Market

Got out of the house today. After a failed attempt at Western Union, I stopped by the Public Market in Pampang with Gern. It was noon when we arrived, and they closed at noon, so we couldn’t do much damage.

At night I went to see the new movie Lucy and sampled a bit from Mr. Taco again. Don’t waste your money on the tiny quesadilla, but getting the “taco wrap” at P95 seemed almost worth the money…almost.

Money Spent – P874/$20.33

Day 105 – Nepo Mall

We have promo, Sir.

A little restocking on groceries had to be done today, and that was accomplished at Robinson’s Grocery Store inside Nepo Mall.

The bulk of the expense was toiletries. I went high-class and bought Listerine and Oral-B dental floss. Found a good deal on a Speed Stick deodorant as well.

Stopped by Jollibee for a quick bite to eat. Sampled the Cheezy Bacon Yum (the smaller version of their beastly Champ Burger).

A Big Mac Surprise in the Philippines

Day 103 – A Big Mac Surprise

Anybody want a Big Mac with a side of paper?

Had an interesting experience at the Philippines McDonalds today. One that I won’t ever forget every time I chomp into a Big Mac. I drove through the Nepo McDonald’s around 11pm, bought a BFF Burger Bundle for 3.

While devouring my so yummy kaya Big Mac, I took a bite and then pulled out something that stopped me in my gluttony tracks. Out pops a small piece of paper that reads, “Shredded Iceberg, AUG 15 2014″.

At least the lettuce was fresh, right? I posted on our Instagram page, Twitter page, and Google+ page in hopes that someone at McDonald’s will catch wind of the mistake.

McDonald’s Philippines and A Return To Tony J’s

Day 101 – McDonald’s

Demolished…

Slept a ton today and when I woke up in the evening I was insanely starving. I drove out to McDonald’s and sinned in gluttony. This madness consisted of fries, a coke, a Big Mac, and a double cheeseburger. Oh yea, and the Sweet & Sour sauce which they charge an extra 10 pesos for.

McDonald’s is pretty much the same exact taste in the Philippines and America. The only difference I’ve found is the Sweet and Sour sauce; I don’t know how to describe it, but it has a more Asian feel to it.

Money Spent – P244/$5.67
