Welcome to Manila Food Finds!

This blog was made to cater to the basic need of human beings.

Eating - which we all love to do!

There are hundreds of food establishments up and about that serves fine meals. But what happens if you get tired of the same old taste you eat day in and day out?

Just like the rest of you, I'm looking for new and exciting places to eat and have some fun at the same time, which is why this blog was created - to share with you the adventures (and hassles) that a food lover has to endure in search of a good find.

We're not picky eaters and we'll try everything and anything as long as it's edible!

Central BBQ Boy Grill

If you're from the south, then you definitely know this place (unless you just came out of your hole). If not, then it's about time I introduce you to your future hangout. This is where the party starts to heat up and sizzle!

Central is themed to be a cozy get together place for friends. This branch is conveniently located at the heart of BF Resort and is frequented with students and yuppies. The warm lights, the inviting ambiance of a beach front bar and the right choice of music is a sure fire formula to keep you partying all night. It may either serve as a meet up place before heading out to your planned destination (e.g. The Fort) or a place to wrap up the night. As you can see on the menu, everything is fairly priced and there's tons of variety to please every palate.

Hmm, what's this green liquid thingy? This is the famous Badtrip and it packs quite a punch. It's a cocktail of Vodka, White Rum, Gin and Juice served in a 1.5L Pitcher (yes there's graduation right at the side).

It doesn't taste too strong nor too light of liquor so watch out how much you're drinking na! I can't discern what juice they used but it surely blends well with the alcohol. There is also harmony with the proportion of the booze. After a few shots, Badtrip will make you Goodtrip!

For the not-so-heavy-drinkers that is only after the pulutan (appetizers) like me, let's see what Central has in store for us.

April was craving for nachos all week long so we ordered one. Priced at 85 pesos (around $2 USD) this one's a winner. Served with beef bits, tomatoes, onions, jalapeno, sour cream and cheese, this dish will satisfy 2-3 persons. A generous serving for a measly price.

We also ordered some barbecue; Chic Man (chicken inasal, 1/4 cut), Vhong (isaw) and Balunbalu-Man (gizzard).

The grilled chicken was cooked just right and was probably marinated for at least overnight since the flavor was infused well inside the chicken. I can compare this chicken inasal with well established fast foods banking on the same genre. The isaw and gizzard tasted as what is expected from them. So yummy! I think I'll make a post featuring street foods so watch out for future updates!

As I told you we're really bad drinkers. Since the Badtrip pitcher is only half empty and we ran out of pulutan na, we also ordered Kila Mare (calamares) or squid cooked in a tempura fashion. It comes with a sour cream dip which is quite good but I prefer to have vinegar as its sauce. Another generous serving plus the squid is cooked just right which didn't make it rubbery.

The waiters are very friendly and accommodating, the service is fast and the crowd is great! Parking is also a breeze. The place is usually packed and when we left around 2 A.M. there's still a lot inside. Oh, by the way, from 5 p.m till 8 p.m. it's Happy Hour! Local beers and cocktails are discounter! What more can you ask for? Now that you're friends with Central, hope we see you there!

From Alabang, turn left at Casimiro. You'll see Central after Elizabeth Seton School on the left side. You'll know you're there when you see a lot of cars parked. ^_^
