Lunch at Mang Jimmy's



Mang Jimmy's

I was writing a blog entry on my Travel Blog about a meet up with my forum friends, and because I didn't have much pictures that would elaborate about our lunch, I decided to just use this picture as my Food Trip Friday entry.

For lunch, Ferj, Kei, and I went to Mang Jimmy's in Balara, Quezon City. The simple looking carinderia has made a buzz about serving good food, and is a popular food place among the students of UP Diliman and other people near the area. Ferj (who studied in UP Diliman) recalled moments of his past and for him it was a nice thing that Kei and I were already eating there.

There was no more "rice all you can," but at that time, diners can have one free dish for every three dishes ordered. We had sizzling tapa mix, sizzling tuna (not in picture), sizzling blue marlin, and for our free dish, we had the bulalo, just so we could have some broth.

I am not a big tuna eater, so I ate more of the blue marlin. Actually, all the dishes were good. And believe it or not, the sizzling dishes were only Php100 each! Three diners, three dishes... it was so great! Kei and I had a wonderful time getting the marrow off the bone!

It's been more than a year since we last ate there. I miss Mang Jimmy's foods!

@FoodTripFriday - We chose bulalo as our free dish, but there are lots of choices. Basta 3 + 1.

@Cecile - It's not dinuguan, it's sizzling tapa mix. :)

@Luna Miranda - Hmmm... Yang litid litid na yan ang dahilan kung bakit kami tumagal sa upuan. Ang sarap!

@MomGen - The blue marlin tasted the best for me.

@Eng - Please do. The foods are delicious.

Ang daming masarap on this week entree. Then my cousin told me it was the town fiesta where I came from, lalo ko ng namiss ang mga pinoy food. Kailangan magluto ako this weekend.
Hirap lang humanap ng ingredients...:(

Jenn, the Foodie


I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
