I haven’t seen Dunkin’ Donuts in a stationary van before so I simply had to take a picture of this one with my cameraphone. Located at the corner of EDSA and Pioneer St. in Mandaluyong.
My kids eat donuts all the time but I avoid it for the simple reason that a friend said “it packs the most calories.”
The Dunkin’ van was just a stopover because I was on my way to eat at the Lola Maria restaurant of the newly-renovated The Legend Villas (formerly Legend Hotel). They’ve got a moderately priced lunch buffet at only P495 which includes an extensive make-your-own halo-halo area and the noodle station. I couldn’t resist plunking my fork down on the chow mein which was crispy fried noodles topped with seafood, meat, fresh veggies and the most delectable sauce. I am too much of a noodles person to resist!
Which reminds me: Filipinos usually out kalamansi and soy sauce/liquid seasoning on their noodles. But try putting chili sauce on your pancit canton, it’s even better!
I need somebody to explain to me why motel food is simply great… dahil ba ito’y luto ng Diyos? Pardon the pun, hehehe. But I do think it’s a secret nobody has voiced out in the open that motel cooks are good…. otherwise, why would they be offering catering for parties and take-out aside of course from dine-in? My officemates and I who all live to eat (not eat to live) have been ordering from the Mahal Kita Motel (whatever) in Pasay. Patawarin po kami pero ginagawa naming midnight snack ang kanilang pancit canton and crispy pata courtesy of our benefactor, the Korean Agent. Ibang klase ang style ng kanilang special canton, may hard-boiled egg and fried chicken.
In the meantime, there is so much food that I’ve been trying to subsist on a diet of whole wheat bread when the opportunity permits. So help me God!
