After watching this Fantasy Adventure series for 9 years, the Game of Thrones HBO series has concluded leaving many of us discombobulated and confused and satisfied over the progression of the last season.

  2. Why doens’t Sansa bow to Danaerys after all that she gave up to save the North?
  3. Why does Tyrion just give up on Danaerys, when she has been delaying this attack for 2 seasons, and suddenly they’re surprised she did it?
  4. Why did Tyrion even pledge to Dany when he was a Lannister through and through?
  5. Who were the green eyes that Arya was supposed to kill?
  6. Why was Arya trained to kill when they barely uses her skills in the end?
  7. Can’t have Jon and Danaerys just ruled together?
  8. Where is Drogon taking Danaerys?
  9. Why didn’t Drogon kill Jon?
  10. Why didn’t the Dothraki blood riders take revenge on Jon?
  11. Who captured Jon after he killed Danaerys?
  12. Why didn’t the Lords of Westeros take Sam Tarwell seriously when he proposed the democracy?
  13. What qualified Edmure Tully to even think to volunteer himself?
  14. Wouldn’t Bran be better in a high advisory position?
  15. Why did no one talk about Jon’s linage?
  16. Why did they reveal it and even spread it around when it was not brought up at all?
  17. Why did Bran even tell Jon? When Bran saw that he was the one who will be king?
  18. Why didn’t each of the respective kingdoms just decide to be independent?
  19. Why did Bran allow Sansa to be independent?
  20. Why give the throne to Bran when he clearly said he wanted to titles, and then acts as if he already knew he would be king?
  21. Why couldn’t they do anything to help Jon, and instead condemn him to the wall again?
  22. Where does the Dothraki go?

  37. Will Tyrion rebuild house Lannister?
  38. What’s in the west of Westeros?
  39. What did all the symbols from the White Walkers since season 1 mean?
  40. Why was it so easy to defeat the Night King?
  41. Why do they think they broke the wheel? It’s literally the same people running it from before except Bran is King, and the population was greatly reduced.
  42. Why can’t Sansa give refuge to Jon?
  43. So Jon is the last Targaryan? Who will now be Lord of Dragonstone?
  44. Why did Jon leave Castle Black?
  45. How can they end it with Jon not bearing any children, owning no lands, and having no titles after proving he was the rightful heir to the throne?
  46. How come everyone got what they wanted, except for Jon and Danaerys?
  47. Why is it even called A Song of Fire and Ice, when it ended up all about Bran?
  48. Why did they end it exactly like Lord of the Rings?
  49. Where is Jon headed?
  50. Will the Stark siblings see each other again?

 

While we still have a lot of questions, HBO gave us 9 years worth of heartbreak, adventure, magic and fantasy.

Whether or not you liked the ending, Game of Thrones is still one of the best shows on television and HBO did a great job in telling the story of Fire and Ice.

Props to Dan and Dave for bringing the story of George R. Martin to life.

Soogba: The Best Inasal in Manila

Soogba: The Best Inasal in Manila

Chicken is one of the most common ingredients in any household, it’s affordable, it’s accessible and It’s easy to prepare. All over the Philippines, there are a number of ways to prepare it, either stewed, fried or grilled. For us, grilled is definitely the way to go and while sweet Pinoy chicken bbq is great, we just have a preference to Inasal.

What is Chicken Inasal? 

Chicken Inasal is an Illongo dish. They first marinate in vinegar, calamansi, onion powder, ginger, brown sugar. Then it is basted in annatto oil. Once grilled it’s paired with a soy sauce, calamansi, vinegar and chili sauce on the side. You can also choose to add chicken oil. Chicken oil is an orange colored liquid that instantly adds an umami flavor to the chicken.

 

fat girls day out -Soogba

 

While they are many different chicken Inasal restaurants all over Metro Manila. We’ve found that the best one is Soogba. Yes, for the all the Insal aficionados we will definitely vouch that this is THE BEST yet we’ve had so far in Manila.

A newcomer into the scene, Soogba first opened in Don Antonio Heights in February 2018 in the North Food Hive. While I’m absolutely not a fan of food parks, I made my way here just to try their chicken.

On this encounter, I met the owner and a passionate home cook Carlo Tanalgo, born and raised in Bacolod. Upon trying out the kind of Inasal Manila had to offer, he formulated his own recipe on what a good chicken Inasalis. Aside from creating his own marinade, he has also developed a way of grilling the chicken that elevates Soogba’s Inasal.

His passion is to share with us what actual Inasal is like in Bacolod.

FGDO Top Picks

 

Soogba

Petcho with rice

Once delivered to your table the strong scent of chargrilled chicken enters your nostrils. The serving is huge and generous you might want to get the 3 rice option. Another staple I usually pair with Inasal is the soy-calamansi-vinegar-chili sauce but in this case, there really is no need. It’s one of the very few times where I say NO SAUCE PLEASE. Each bite of Soogba’s chicken Inasal is smokey, deep in flavors, and downright delicious. In Tagalog, “nakakagana“. Paired perfectly with their fried rice.

 

Isol

While not usually my favorite part of the chicken, Soogba’s Isol (chicken ass)  is just juicy and tender. The fat content burst with flavor in each bite.

Hamonado Chorizo

To balance the meal, we also had their hamonado chorizo, serving size is huge and can definitely be shared. Cooked well its great paired with their spiced vinegar.

 

fat girls day out Soogba

 

While we were not able to try the entire menu, we will definitely be back to try their Kansi and K.B.L.

Why go?

Soogba brings to the Manila scene what a good chicken Inasal should be like. Down to earth and unpretentious, they serve you with the best Chicken Inasal. The price point is also affordable and is definitely value for your money.

We believe places like these deserve your full attention because, at the end of the day, Taste is always KING.

Chateaubriand: Churrasco Dining Redefined

Chateaubriand: Churrasco Dining Redefined

Churrasco (pronounced as ‘shoe-RHAS’-ko’) is a unique type of cooking, created by the Gauchos. Gauchos originate from Argentina, and some other South American counties who have learned to merge Mediterranean influences with the local way of cooking. After digging pits in the ground, the Gauchos would start a bonfire from the rangelands of the Pampas. Once the fire turns to embers, hot enough for cooking, the placed large pieces of meat that were skewered. These skewers we then slowly roasted to perfection over the fire pits.

 

FAT GIRLS DAY OUT CHATEAUBRIAND

Experience Churrasco at the Chateaubriand.

Located at Roxas Blvd., Chateaubriand is a new concept restaurant/event place that marries the concept of the Churrasco experience to a fine dining set up. The whole compound is separated into several areas, live band area, fine dining churrasco buffet (1st floor), a bar (outside), live concept kitchen (2nd floor). Each area carefully arranged to provide customers with the best experience.

 

 

Its decor is grand by definition with marble flooring, a hanging chandelier right at the center of the first floor, and luxury fixtures to provide the best comfort to their diners. Fixtures and tables set up to allude a fine dining atmosphere.

Take a seat, and decide whether you want to start with the buffet or the churrasco offerings. In our visit, we went ahead and got some appetizers from their buffet.

 

They had a variety of choices in their grand buffet. Start your meal with a soup and salad. Then have your pick from fresh sashimi and sushi, cold cuts and cheeses, a nacho bar, tempura, and pizza and pasta dishes.

We recommend the caesar salad as they make it in wheel of fresh parmigiana regiano.

Bring on the Meat.

Finally, after a few appetizers, we were ready. Turn over the red bottom to let the wait staff know that you are now ready to partake in the churrasco experience.

Each time a new kind of meat came out, we could not help ourselves and taste each and every kind. You can pair this with their 3 sauces, chateaubriand sauce, mushroom gravy, and chimchurri.

 

FAT GIRLS DAY OUT CHATEAUBRIAND

 

We recommend that you try all the churraso selections that they have but we recommend having the following:

  • Chateaubriand- this is large center cut fillet mignon, grilled and served with the signature Chateaubriand sauce made of  beef or veal reduction, white wine, tarragon, butter and shallots.
  • Sirloin – the sirloin is the back part of the cow, this is seasoned and grilled to a perfect medium rare.
  • Pineapple – Sweet and juicy pineapple covered with cinnamon powder.  It creates a nice contrast from the flavor.
  • Chicken sausage – plump and juicy pieces of sausage.
  • Pork belly – These were tender and juicy.
  • Blue marlin – These were surprisingly tender and seasoned perfectly.

These items stood out and had the full flavor of smokiness and tenderness you would like in your meats.

WHY GO?

You want to have a fine dining churrasco experience, that also has a grand buffet filled with Japanese cuisine, cold cuts and cheeses, and a salad bar. While it may be pricey, make sure to load up on the protein to make the whole experience worthwhile. The whole area might look a bit intimidating at first but once you settle in, you then sit back and relax and get to enjoy the parade.
