Chicken Buffalo Wing @ Wings & Dips

  I just love to eat… I love exploring new places… I want to try new food… Let me share to you a cool place I’ve discovered (or introduced to me)…WINGS & DIPS!

Actually, It’s been months already since the last time I’ve been here.  I want to go back but couldn’t coz’ of my busy schedule (hehehe).  Anyway, if you’re into buffalo chicken wings, then this place is for YOU.. I love how they present the dish and the taste is also amazing.

By the way, what is Buffalo Chicken Wings? According to Wikipedia — A Buffalo wing, hot wing or wing is a chicken wing section (drumette or flat) that is traditionally deep-fried unbreaded and then coated in sauce. Classic Buffalo-style chicken wing sauce is composed of a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter.  Buffalo wings are traditionally served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.

Buffalo wings were created in Buffalo, New York. The residents of Buffalo generally refer to them as “wings” or “chicken wings” rather than “Buffalo wings.”

I am actually not sure if the recipe they have in Wings & Dips is “Chicken Buffalo Wing” but that’s what everyone (most of them) call it.(lol)

Anyway, in Wings & Dips – they have combo meals where you can choose 4 pcs chicken wings + pasta (pesto, bolognese, carbonara, etc) and a side dish (french fries, mashed potato, rice, or corn & carrots).. Your choices of dips are: Bleu Cheese, Honey Mustard, lemon, Mayo, Tartar, & Wasabi Mayo. Ilike Bleu Cheese and Honey Mustard.

The price??? ..ONLY 120-175 pesos…

You can find Wings & Dips at Door 7A Mabini Commercial Complex. Mabini St. Corner V. Mapa St., Davao City

or You can go to the Peak at Gaisano Mall of Davao City. 🙂

MAGNUM FEVER!!!

It seems like most FILIPINOS are getting gaga over MAGNUM… When it was finally released here in the Philippines, it went VIRAL.. People were posting it on facebook, twitter, google+, instagram, etc…  I am not sure why everyone fell for it… I guess the Marketing department of Magnum worked really hard for it.  Their hard work really paid of…  Then after a week or so, Magnum showed its first TV commercial with the tag line “Enjoy the Royal Treatment” and the people got more crazy.

During its first week I tried looking for it, to check if its worth the GAGA NEWS… I failed to find one. All grocery stores/shops don’t have stocks anymore.  And I said, WOW!!! Is this really more delicious than my fave ice cream (Haagen Daz)?? I should try it soon…

Luckily I have a friend who found it in an HB1 store.  She bought two Classic magnum (coz she knew I wanted it badly).  When she gave it to me, I said — Is this it? hahaha Nothing special! Oh! There is, the chocolate coating is made from Belgian Chocolate.. But if you want a chocolate, maybe you should buy a Chocolate bar instead… The Ice cream is a NO NO!!! Nothing Beats HAAGEN DAZ!

The following week, I guess the owners of different grocery shops knew how HOT MAGNUM is, so they purchased LOTS of it…. And I bought second flavor which is ALMOND.. Well, nothing special again… but its better that Classic.. For 50 pesos is really expensive and I think its not worth i t.   If you want a really delicious ice cream, just try korean  ice cream instead like Melona. Or go to a Gelatissimo shop. Thay are far more delicious that this so called MAGNUM..

Anytime soon, the GAGANESS will soon fade. I know that for sure.. And I think the Marketing department of MAGNUM will try to think of other ways to keep the interest of people in their product.

Goodluck!!!

As for me, Im done with MAGNUM.. (Maybe I will try again if there’s a new flavor) 😉

GimBap / KimBap

Gimbap or kimbap is a popular Korean dishmade from steamed white rice (bap) and various other ingredients, rolled in gim (sheets of dried laver seaweed) and served in bite-size slices. Gimbap is often eaten during picnics or outdoor events, or as a light lunch, served with danmuji or kimchi.

Gimbap is derived from Japanese futomaki (Makizushi) during the Japanese rule (1910-1945). (source: wikipedia)

Gimbap is a Korean dish that anybody can eat… This is not spicy and this is just similar to sushi (without  the raw fish).  This is on the first few Korean dishes I like.  I don’t like spicy food that much so, when a friend introduced me to korean dishes I fell in love to Kimbap.. Coz’ this is not spicy and I can eat as many as I like (unlike Kimchi and the others).  This is also cheap compared to other Korean dishes. If you want to try Korean dishes, maybe you should start with Kimbap… 😉

Prices (Davao Korean Restaurants):

  • Somang Kimchi – 180 pesos (Below)
  • Gomone – 130 pesos
  • Seoul Ga – 130 pesos (Above)

YangNyeom Fried Chicken

Korean fried chicken or seasoned chicken (Korean: 양념 치킨 yangnyeom chikin) is a fried chicken dish prepared in a Korean style. It is traditionally eaten as fast food, at bars, or as an after meal snack in Korea. It is not often consumed as a meal.

Korean fried chicken is prepared in a way that removes the fat from the skin, resulting in a crust described by Julia Moskin of The New York Times as a “thin, crackly and almost transparent”. The chickens are usually seasoned with spices after being fried. In South Korea, chickens are relatively small, so Korean fried chicken restaurants fry whole chickens before hacking it into bits. In the United States, chickens tend to be larger and Korean restaurants find it more difficult to deal with large breasts and thighs. As a result, many Korean fried chicken restaurants in the United States usually serve wings and small drumsticks. Pickled radishes, beer, and soju are often served with Korean fried chicken.  (source: Wikipedia)

YangNyeom Fried Chicken is one of the Korean food that I like very much.   The mixture of hot and sweet is so delicious that will make you forget your name. (lol)  Here in Davao there is only one Korean restaurant (that I know) that offers this food.  It’s GOMONE.   GOMONE is located in Doña Vicenta Drive, JP Laurel Ave., Bajada, Davao City.  Just beside Levele Up Enrichment Center (An English Language Center)

Most of my friends don’t like Korean food very much but when they tasted this dish they started liking it. :D:D:D

So why don’t you try it!?
