Best of: the Buffalo Wings Challenge with Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla

Best of: the Buffalo Wings Challenge with Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla

So we’re diversifying the type of content that we produce in such a way to provide fun insights and for this month of July we’re kicking off our special month feature of launching something different in content.  A Fat Girls Day Out Feature: Best of Comfort Food Series with guest star Mariel Rodriguez Padilla.

 

 

 

Everyday Comfort Food

We will stick to the common crowd favorites that we Filipinos love to eat casually. Nothing too fancy and playful. Just staying to the true essence of everyday munch that we all crave for.

These are the basic parameters for testing:

  1. Everyday comfort food by mot Filipinos enjoyed by the general public, general segment and any age group (i.e fried chicken, chocolate cake, french fries, chicken inasal, etc.).
  2. Those food items who are constantly hyped by other food review sites

 

Why a Blind Taste?

Often times our perception of choice may be altered by mindful priming of the ever so careful marketing strategies. Consumers will often be exposed to imposing ideas and mindless “influencers” telling you something is so delicious only to find out that their tastebud’s objectivity says otherwise.

We are stripping away brand names, complimenting sides, and other related add-ons to augment a particular product.

We are calling this segment feature under our WHERE to EAT series- BEST of Comfort Food Series. We have an exciting line up of funnel materials for the rest of 2018 and this Blind Test challenge will hopefully kick things off. If you’ve been a reader of our platform we love drilling down to the very core basic of any food presented: TASTE. TASTE is always KING.

 

1st Item: Chicken Wings

Filipino’s love affair over the years grew significantly over these past few years. You see different establishments offering these God sent angel deep fried wings. There’s something mildly unsatisfying about gnawing on a tiny avian bone. That’s true even before you consider the disproportionate work-to-meat ratio, which pales in comparison to that of, say, the much more satisfying thigh.

We’ve rounded up the Top 5 most popular wings in Metro Manila based on data we collected thru our social media polls, published top 10 knick-knacks of some popular websites and through our friend’s insights as well.

 

 

 

Do check and subscribe to our official Youtube Channel for your monthly dose of out of the box contents.

 

Feel free to engage on our social channels for real-time updates.

Disclaimer: We paid for all the food consumed on this blind test.

El Chupacabra (Poblacion): Just to Give Credit to the one who started the scene

El Chupacabra in Poblacion, Makati is a Mexican restaurant which earned its credo to be serving really good street tacos and cheap local beers. I remember stumbling at this joint back in 2012 while my former date and I wanted to still hang out and […]

La Mère Poulard: Tradition and Quality Since 1888

La Mère Poulard: Tradition and Quality Since 1888

La Mère Poulard in Manila is the fourth branch of the renowned French restaurant. The original restaurant still sits in Mont Saint-Michel, while the two other branches can be found in Japan. There are only 4 La Mère Poulard in the whole world and that includes their venture here in the Philippines.

Fat Girls Day Out- La Mère Poulard

 

The restaurant was founded by Anne “Annette” Boutiaut (1851-1931), who married Victor Poulard on 14 January 1873 and founded the Hostellerie de la Tête d’Or, after finding that customers came and went quickly, gave them the idea of cooking giant omelettes in a wooden hearth in a certain way made these eggs puffy and frothy . This technique made it feel that the eggs were more like a souffle rather than an omelet in the mouth. This, along with a number of other recipes she had crafted, gained her the French honorary title “Mère” or “Mother,” which is only granted to excellent cooks. This was the beginning of La Mère Poulard’s worldwide reputation for its hospitality and well-executed dishes.

 

 

Their space is open with lots of natural light coming in. The dining room is decorated with the autographed pictures of some of the most famous patrons of yore: Eisenhower, Camus, Sophia Loren, JFK, Woody Allen.

It is mandatory that we order what they are famous for – their puffy omelet and it was delicious and well executed. Their Puffy Omellete can either be ordered as a savory meal or a sweet dessert. Its unique and exquisitely foamy omelette is but a component of a broader experience: the eggs are beaten in copper bowls at the entrance, adorned as a traditional cuisine.

They embrace the ‘Open Kitchen’ concept for full transparency and as a stage to view the flames, steam and clattering in the kitchen as part of the whole dining experience.

The omelettes are very good and unique enough that you need to try them just once in your life. True, the service is indifferent and the focus is on giving you what you ordered. But I say if you know what’s going there, you might be pleasantly surprised and glad you did.

Omelettes with mushroom truffle risotto and Foie Gras. This Off-the-menu item must be the best combination that I’ve tried here in La Mere Poulard. It’s rich, it’s heavy and each bite is delectable.

Beef Caldereta

The French style of cooking is highly prevalent. Everything was precisely cut. You can see the brunoise, matchstick, or batonnet executed well. These little precise details make French cooking the basis of western cooking techniques.

French cooking isn’t fancy or snobby, but if you look at in its simplest state. It’s all about layering flavors, mastering basic techniques, and savoring every bite.

 The staff is friendly and professional. Yes, it has a high price point reduced to just the eggs, it’s not worth the money. If you are sensitive to the charm and the history that built the brand and from where it came from, I think you will find it worthwhile.

La Mère Poulard in BGC is a great addition to the pouring in of great global brand & franchises in the Philippines. It comes to show that the Filipinos palette is evolving and the marketability of our demographic is at par with the other countries.
