    Pizza King takes the cake, used to be great, last two visits, pizza was marginal and the last vist, the carbonara sauce was completely curdled.
    (CORRECTION: PASTA King, Dustin, sorry 'bout that, in response to below)

    Really like Azalea, good food, but they are "out of stock" too often.. Time to fix the business model / menu / inventory control... somehow..

    Where is Pizza King? First I've heard of that. Did you mean Pasta King?

    Very striking I come up with same opinion. I go out for diner for a change a few times a week to avoid dining @home 7 days a week. But all in all even after so many years since 2008 almost each and every time wondering why I do so.

    Do you think your opinion of a particular restaurant changes due perhaps to factors such as change of owner, changes in menu or even (if everything remains okay) boredom? If so, then it is difficult to name, say, a top 4 now, when next week we might have a different opinion.

    Today I solved a lunch dilemma - where do I go. So I went to the Why Not deli, bought a french bread roll, a good size slice of Farmers ham, and a few slices of black cheddar cheese. My wife fried the ham with the cheese on top, fried an egg sunny side up, put mustard on the bread, put the sandwich together, cut the sandwich in half, and made 2 sandwiches. I wish I had pickles to add. Couldn’t finish the two.
    Reminds me, I had the Thai Pad Thai Noodles with schrimp at Why Not before, acceptable dish, for here.

    Tonight, the Wife is making Pizza for the Family, and I can vouch for it, that it will taste better than anything available in Dumaguete! :wink: Often Home made is the best option if you simply want it done right! :thumbsup:

    why-i-stopped-going-to- many different places is the price went up. I can understand creeping prices due to inflation but so many places hold the line on their prices for a long time and they become my favorite go-to place and then suddenly they double the price. Example: Sans Rival. Until a couple of years back they offered a slice of lasagna with a fountain coke for 72 pesos and suddenly WHAM it was double. Put me right off. I still go there from time to time as it is not a bad deal but I could not tell you what the price is now. I only remember prices when it is a favorite dish at a favorite price and I am on a budget. For example (touch wood it will be there a while longer) I have a favorite place that offers a breakfast special with bacon, eggs, toast, jam and brewed coffee for 135 pesos. They have had that special ever since they opened 4 years ago. Every time I go in there I fear they will have eliminated it from their menu but so far it's still good.

    Agree about doing it yourself brian,we had thai green curry last night and chillie tonight. Not quite sure the gf likes this sort food all the time though. I know if im not about it would revert back to boiled fish with a kg of rice to wash it down with.
