    Do not assume because one branch of a restaurant is good,other branches will also be good. Example: Sr. Pedros lechon manuk in Dumaguete by the fire station park. Bought in Sibulan, lechon was very good. Bought in Dumaguete, terrible with lots of added salt, almost uneatable, waste of 200php. I will give it to the dogs.

    May I ask where that is or do you fear a rush will mean "out of stock sir" for you?

    Not so much "out of stock" but foreigners have a very bad habit of telling owners that the meal and the price are "so great they could easily charge more" and the next thing you know my favorite meal is double the price. (Some exaggeration you think? See my rant in the pizza thread to see I do not exaggerate more than slightly.)

    I have come across this here when I am told "But so & so will pay this much" I simply tell them to ''go and see so & so and deal with them then.'' Of course you cannot do that with a Restaurant, but I have noticed some foreigners who come here for a Holiday, do like to talk it up and say how cheap things are here compared to back home, making it that bit harder for us who reside here fulltime.

    And btw, what is it with food emporiums here that seem to conflate quality with buffet? I could take a pop at the “unli rice merchants” here; the there is a lot of it = good rabble. But I’ll confine my remarks to hotel breakfast buffets. Stuffing your gut with the lunch equivalent of 5 bottles of coke per hit is not good for the pancreas, particularly if it arrives with the contents of a baby’s nappy recently scraped from the bowels of a buffet container. Later. I promise.

    Unhygienic and a pathway to severe gastro-intestinal inconvenience, the Filipino Hotel breakfast buffet. The modus operandi - usually left to moulder and stew for hours without a thought for keeping it hot. Hardly the best way to greet a guest first thing. But guests keep lapping it up in front of signs warning people to finish their plates first (the hospitality Stasi are watching your every move) before they swarm like flies back toward those silver fly traps. And do finish your conversations and hurry up, others would be better served by a UN relief convoy whilst you dither in front of the congee. I digress.

    The toasting machine never toasts properly, mega-tonnes of crumbs from months ago congeal beneath the revolving tray as an insipid element warms sugary bread at the same power the Sun heats Pluto. The cafetière is either empty or has been cooling there for aeons whilst gormless staff wander or stand about doing nada. The omelette station looks like a field dressing station circa the Crimean War so you proceed back to the buffet containers. There lurking within are 2 lonely longanisa, abandoned and unwanted. It’s enough to cause me to reach for the...

    Ps: no insult to the Phils was ever intended, all comments are very much tongue in cheek however accurate.
