The Maginhawa Street Series

For the past few months, I’ve been seeing variations of foodie guides to Maginhawa St. such as this one:

After having gone through various maps such as this one, all I can say is that these maps do not give justice to the food haven that is Maginhawa St. There are lots of hole in the wall restaurants yet to be included on these maps.

Luckily, I just live a couple of blocks away so I’m always updated on what’s new. Perhaps this will be my new project: The Maginhawa Street Series. From time to time, I will try to write about the restaurants in the area. Wish me luck!

Pink’s Manila

If you’re a fan of America’s Next Top Model, you’d probably remember one photoshoot during the All Stars Cycle where the models posed for Pink’s Hotdogs, one of Los Angeles’ best hotdog joint. Now the franchise has made its way in the Philippines and opened its first store in Bonifacio Global City.


Just this afternoon, me and my friend Karen had the chance to try the famous Pink’s hotdog. Since we were both rushing to get back at our individual offices, we just asked for their best sellers. Upon the recommendation of the cashier, we ordered The Hollywood Legend and Philly Cheesesteak Dog.


Upon serving, we both looked at each other and told ourselves that we may not be able to eat the entire thing because of the generous serving size. Little did we know that our plates would be emptied just a few minutes after because the hotdogs were so good. I think this is the first time I’ve really enjoyed a child dog.

It may seem a bit pricey for a hotdog to be worth around 250 to 350 pesos, but hell it was worth it. I can’t wait to be back again. Next time I’ll make sure to compliment my chili dog with a bottle of ice cold draft beer.

Pink’s Manila: It is not any ordinary hotdog.
