The Wicked Waffle – Loyola Heights, Katipunan

Waffles are just pancakes with abs. And The Wicked Waffle has over 30 kinds of waffle creations.


They also have other items to choose from as well like soups, salads, appetizers, Filipino breakfast favorites, Continental breakfast favorites, rice bowls, pasta, omelettes, sandwiches, and steaks. They have a pretty loaded menu and items are affordable.


Í had the Breakfast of Champions plate that has waffles, bacon, potatoes and scrambled eggs. It costs 195php.

Look and taste considered, there’s nothing special about it. Not sure why it’s even a Chef’s Recommendation. What taste would I expect from those dishes that aren’t even recommended?  The only thing I liked from this plate was the potatoes and it wasn’t even that good.


I might come back to try their Breakfast Ramen because that seems interesting, or have some Southern Fried Chicken maybe. I’m just sure I’ll skip the waffles. Wickedly ironic, isn’t it?

Their other branches are in Tagaytay, SM Manila, McKinley Hill, Better Living and Eastwood Cyber Mall.

Kantori Yakitori – Aguirre Ave, BF Homes

I was hungry and it was raining and none of my Bene barkada was in BF yet for our scheduled catch up over drinks. I asked the Uber driver to stop the car at the first interesting restaurant I laid my eyes on as soon as we went past the Phase 1 Aguirre guardhouse.

And it was Kantori Yakitori.

It was the Japanese lanterns that caught my eye. I lovelovelove lanterns!

I started my meal with a Sake Bomb. I accidentally deleted the video where I slammed my hands on the table and the shot glass filled with sake fell off the chopsticks into the glass of beer.

Then I had a bowl of Miso Corny Soup that according to the description in the menu has cream and leeks, but I didn’t taste the cream, the leeks and even the miso. The corn sat at the bottom of the bowl and I only got to meet them when I was done with the soup.

The YummyMono Sampler was win though. I enjoyed everything on this plate- the shiitake topped with fish flakes, breaded tofu, bacon wrapped asparagus, quail eggs and pork belly. Sabi ng menu to share daw. Too late when I read the part of the menu that said “Sharing is Caring”.  Didn’t plan on finishing the platter by myself pero nagutom ako sa kakahintay sa kanila so naubos ko na pala. :p

What I couldn’t finish was my Coke in can so I did what any normal (?) person will do if there’s some leftover Coke. Get a shot of Jack Daniels, of course.

I wanted to try the Japanese whisky sampler by the time my friends arrived, but they decided they wanted to eat something sweet. And there’s no dessert being served in Kantori Yakitori.

I hope they serve some sweet matcha goodies soon. I’ll have it with my shots of Suntory, Hibiki 17, Nikka Miyagiko. Or maybe with a glass of highball.

We ended up going to Rue Bourbon where we had some beer, shooters and cocktails. And where they ate ribs and fries. Sweet pala ang gusto niyo ha?!!?? Liars! Pffffttt! 😛



Finally, a Kanto Freestyle Breakfast in Makati!

I used to go to Mandaluyong and Kapitolyo just to pig out on inexpensive breakfast food served in a sossified way. Good thing I don’t have to anymore because Kanto Freestyle Breakfast already opened a branch here in Makati!

It’s along Burgos, very near St. Peter and Paul Church. Huwag magpapa-confuse sa waiting shed na may nakalagay na Samahang Nazareno. :p That’s already Kanto.


We went there last week and I was amazed to see the place packed even if it’s still on its soft opening.


Dave and I already had dinner but we still had space for baconsilog (plus extra strips of crispy bacon), tocilog, hot chocolate, iskrambol, and fried suman with strawberry syrup and ube ganache. See their complete menu here.

Kanto Makati has a second floor with veranda and a small function room downstairs that are both ideal venues for team meetings. Attention to my bosses: please dalhin niyo po kami ditong lahat. 😀

To those asking if there’s wi-fi here, here’s the hugot answer from their Instagram account:


Welcome to the neighborhood, Kanto! You’ll surely make my breakfasts better!


Please check their Facebook page for updates.
