Cholesterol – HIGH.
Must EXERCISE! Must RIDE!
I can feel and hear the warning bells… It’s dark. No Rain. Air is cool.
I grabbed my bike, freshly-charged helmet light, water jug and headed to Raffy’s bike shop hoping to tag a few more dudes.
Raffy, Ronald and Calayo are ready. After riding in circles at the Marikina Heights Liwasang Kalayaan like tormented flies, we finally headed to Calumpang, Marikina.
We know Calumpang is a place of great cooks and great food.
We rode the Fernando avenue and there it is, our first stop.
A La Paz Batchoy place.
We ordered 2 La Paz Batchoys and try if they are good for our highly sophisticated taste buds.
They cost 60 pesos per order.
Oh yeah. It looks good, smells good, fresh and taste good. The soup is just right. Not overpowering the other ingredients. No need for additional salt and pepper. The chicharon, special.
Try it. I recommend it!
Next stop, the famous giant burger. Boyong’s of Calumpang.
I have heard it is so good. Now I have to put it to the test.
The J burger, too oily.
The McD, too plain.
The King, better but not that special.
But the BOYONG,s!! Oh man, a legend.
I can’t quite describe it but i will try. The burger patty is 1/2 pound and has a special secret ingredient mixed with it.
So meaty and tasty. It smells good too. It has tomatoes, lettuce and cucumber. Only 85 pesos. I am sure my stomach will make me come back to this place again and again.
They have Bibingka too. The best I have tasted.
On to our next stop. We are looking for some X’mas puto bumbong.
Ah, a X’mas Bazaar. There must be puto bumbong here.
There is something cooking in those pipes.
Not the best ever, but good.
