    McDonalds- softserv vanilla, strawberry and chocolate 12 oz shakes are available on the GRAB app for Dumaguete and suburbs. If they arrive soft pop them in the freezer. To double the portion, refill the cup after dumping into the blender with 12 oz. of Fresh Milk and blend.

    I've been after the local management for 14 years to bring shakes to the Philippines.

    Also on the Grab app is the place for instructions such as extra pickles and extra onions on your hamburger.

    Grab and FoodPanda are going head to head but missing items and debit card payments are also collected in cash by the riders by unsuspecting customers have led us to use Grab more and more.

    Current favorites are:

    Mooone:
    Ribeye and or Tenderloin steaks.
    Thin-sliced onion rings.
    Potato soup.

    Lantau
    Lomi soup, best local flavor.
    Watermelon shakes.

    Flamin Grill:
    Crunchy French fried onion rings.

    Chia:
    Omelet
    Buritto

    From discussions with restaurant owners, my understanding is that Panda and probably Grab take 20 or 30% out of the restaurants take. Restaurants can't survive long with that. We patronize places that have their own couriers, and tip them well. We try to do take out too...

    For places that don't have their own delivery staff or advertising budget this might be a fair tradeoff for the free advertising and potential new customers these services can bring. Also, without these delivery services the sales that are made may very well have never been made in the first place. I would rather lose 20-30% of the P50 profit than make nothing at all.

    I think the real problem with these delivery services is how they treat their "drivers". I believe they are taking advantage of desperate people.
