ANY ANY at Hole in the Wall – Century City Mall, Makati

It’s been a long time since our last visit to Manila’s most hipster food hall, Hole in the Wall (HITW). Whenever we visited it in the past, we would always go for a cheeseburger from The Beef and that famous Umami Fried Chicken with Dirty Rice at Bad Bird. It was kind of exciting at first but it can get a little bit too predictable because we would always go for our favorites. Yes, both The Beef and Bad Bird are our favorites, as both are really good. But at some point, we were left wondering, “What could be our next HITW favorite?” Hmmmmm… After months of not being able to drop by Hole in the Wall, here comes the new kid on the block. When we saw this newly opened stall, it reminded us of a usual answer to the question “Where will we eat?”. The answer to this most of the time is, “Kahit saan” or “Kahit ano” in Filipino, and in English it is “Any Any”. Sounds familiar? Well, in this edition of EATSplorations, we will be sharing with you about ANY ANY at Hole in the Wall in Century City Mall, Makati. Could this be our next HITW favorite? Keep reading to find out.

In this edition of EATSplorations, join us as we talk about a relaxing Sunday morning during our Boozy Like Sunday Morning at Poblacion Dining RoomΒ EATSperience. Continue reading…

Milkshake 101 at Shakeaway – BGC

Weather here in the Philippines has been encouraging me to indulge, every once in a while, on cold and sweet treats. You know—halo-halo, fruit shakes, and milkshakes. The Philippines has become a home for sweet and cold treats because one, it is just extremely hot in here. Two, we, Filipinos, love sweet stuff. Agree? I know you do. That’s why in this edition of EATSplorations, I will be sharing with you my EATSperience with Milkshake 101 at Shakeaway in BGC. Yes, Shakeaway’s second branch is at the Uptown Mall in Bonifacio Global City. My wife and I have been really excited to visit Shakeaway to finally try what makes it special. However, when I had the chance to visit Shakeaway, my wife and baby were still asleep during our EATStaycation at F1 Hotel Manila when I visited, so you guys have to bear with me first. Ready to find out what I have EATSperienced? Here it goes! Continue reading…
