The food I ate may not be as expensive or sosy as the food being featured in most self-confessed foodie blogs out there. But we Filipinos are really lucky since there are so many food restaurants and chains here whose menus are reasonably priced and still within most of our pay scales. Some US blogs feature places where they could eat 2 dollar lunches. Actually they're already quite lucky if they get a whole meal for as low $2 (P100). A meal in the US might be a sandwich or meat & carbs but meals here in our country is almost always synonymous to rice and ulam (viand). In the Philippines, we can eat ulam and (a lot of) rice under P100 -- sometimes even less than P50! Paotsin is an example. That fried food store is such a runaway success that I wish I could franchise even just one store.Even McDo, Jollibee and KFC always offer value meals so that there's a choice for each Filipino. Here's an entire meal I ate under P100. I even ordered dessert with it :)

I guess this would be the start of featuring my delicious below-100-peso lunches in this blog. Let's hope it sparks interest in most Pinoy 'eaters'. Share yours too please!
