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!

N-LO'S @ BF Homes Paranaque

Scour the entire Aguirre Street at BF Homes yet you wont find a place packed as N-LO'S is. This new hangout place located at BF is still rocking when we arrived at 2:00 A.M. one gimmick night.
Not packed with your daily dose of chicks and gals though... This is the place where you can spot the hottest chicks in their fashionably neck-breaking outfits. Literally you will count the ol' plain uns. Where the hot chicks are, us boys follow!



You won't miss this when you drive around the area. It's the place where you can see lots of cars parked even some blocks away.


Like Central BBQ Boy Grill (click here for review), N-LO'S serve their own mix of signature cocktails. We had their bestseller which is the "911" (need help? lol). Not much of a kick for the seasoned drinkers but a good side drink for a cold SMB. Priced at 195 bucks per pitcher (1.5 ml).


Onto the food which you've been waiting for. This "Street Food Platter" didn't impress us. Several fishballs, squidballs and kikiams with plain vinegar as a dip for 100 bucks. I know, I should've asked what is included in the platter. Was expecting some isaw, kwek-kwek or something like that.

The "Kesong Puti Pizza" is a winner. Thin crust pizza with light marinara sauce and goat cheese topped with some dried basil. This would be better though if they used fresh basil rather than the dried ones. Still, for 200 bucks, would you complain?


The deal breaker was the "Balut a la Pobre" which is pictured below. If you love our very own balut, you would love this one. The balut was deshelled and was cooked in this sweet, spicy and salty concoction of a sauce and wonderfully placed in a sizzling plate. Served smoking hot and yummy! The sauce by itself merits an applause. Priced at 90 bucks.

Lastly we had the "Squid Sisig" topped with an egg. Just the way I like it, the squid was cooked right so as to be soft, not tough, but with some chewiness in it. Aside from the usual onions, garlic and ginger, I like how they added some mayonnaise that gives a creamy flavor that blends the ingredients altogether. The egg, placed raw at the top, cooks from the heat of the sizzling plate and again add some more creaminess and soft texture to the dish. Best served with a drizzle of calamansi and a few swish of hot sauce. Priced at 130 bucks.

Try it out and have an adventure of your own at N-LO's. A real convenient place to hang out right in the middle of the village. Searching for some drinking spree? Some fun? Or just want to "eye" some hot girls? Look no further! N-LO's is the place for you!
