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!

The New Barbecue Chicken Pizza @ Yellow Cab

It's been a while since I enjoyed a slice of pizza (in this matter, a whole pizza). Good that most Yellow Cab Pizza branches are now open 24 hours. We went in to Yellow Cab Las Pinas (adjacent to starbs) and saw that they have this new pizza in the menu which we ordered along with the Spaghetti with Meatballs, a classic. After some minutes of waiting the pizza was served to us, piping hot in all its glory.

The Barbecue Chicken Pizza is made up of marinated chicken strips, the usual cheese, onions and instead of the marinara sauce (tomato sauce), they had this barbecue sauce as the base of the pizza. The taste blends well with everything. The sauce for me tasted like Hunt's Barbecue Sauce which is yummy. It's a very good offering and is a perfect alternative to the classic New York's Finest (my personal benchmark for local pizza up until this writing). Add a little swig of hot sauce and a dash of spiced-infused extra virgin olive oil and every bite you take is pizza heaven.

Too bad the shots weren't good enough. The physiologic need of eating a sumptuous meal really does come first than taking photos for a blog, haha.

Our next dish needs no introduction. Everyone knows the Yellow Cab Spaghetti and Meatballs. Al dente spaghetti with excellent marinara sauce topped with two giant meatballs and Parmesan cheese. We frequently order this dish but this time they put in a LOT of sauce! Too bad they ran out of Parmesan cheese when I asked for some more. This pasta dish is huge and is good enough for 2 - 3 persons. The best part is the meatballs and is made even tastier with the addition of herbs (probably oregano and parley).

You can see the bits of herbs that lends great flavor to the already delicious meatballs!

And since we tried a new pizza, might as well try a new drink! We had the new Coke Zero and unlike its brother, Coke Light, this drink does not taste bland or unsweet. It tastes like regular iced coke with the ice melted a bit (?). And if it really does not contain any calories or sugar then by all means it's a perfect drink! But who believes that? Haha. It's however still a delicious drink altogether.

A very good meal. We were surprised we ate everything! We usually bring home some leftovers when we eat here, unfortunately not this time (hehe). Like what they always say, "You can't go wrong with pizza!"
