The Real Score: Not Your Usual Food Reviews – An Unusual But Great Mix


Eating out differs from a range of reasons and it somehow depends on the mood, necessity or sometimes even craving. In this edition, we will be tackling a wide range of dishes that probably could not be eaten alongside each other. But without minding that fact, this edition would be interesting to see these dishes fare with some of the standards of dining out options.

In this edition, we will be featuring a Mongolian rice bowl, a Korean Chicken Dish, and a Filipino Rice meal.

These are not categorized by the type of restaurant or even the price range, but rather randomized based on merely what was available at any given time. They are judged by the following numbers:

Each dish are scored based on the following criteria:

So, on to the dishes…

Location: Mongolian Quick Stop

Food: Pork Teppanyaki

Sides: Stir-Fried Vegetables

Drink: Iced Tea

Expected taste that will satisfy your cravings


Nothing special about this dish but considering everyone (or most) loves Teppanyaki, this will do just fine. It passes well as a good Teppanyaki version and the portions and servings matches well with the price. If you need to satisfy a Teppanyaki craving, by all means go here and try it out but nothing more.


Location: Kko Kko

Food: Chicken Fondue

Sides: None

Drink: None

Cheezzzyyy with a twist


While this dish is actually good for sharing, the taste can sometimes be overwhelming to the point that you’ll feel overwhelmed with the taste. The cheese dip is exceptional and using it on the cheese rings as well as the glazed chicken is very nice. The cheese covered fries will be well-loved by both the adults and children alike. However, as you go along in eating them, it will come to a point of feeling of its taste eventually. Probably not to be eaten during lunch I think.



Location: Ted’s Oldtimer La Paz Batchoy

Food: Namit meal (Bangus)

Sides: Small Batchoy

Drink: Softdrink

Always go for the Batchoy on this one


Went in here for the Batchoy, a type of noodle soup that can be traced back to the South of The Philippines as its origin. The Bangus (Milkfish) is crunchy enough and fried well. What made me got disappointed is the noodle soup in itself. I am not sure if it is because of the closing hours at nighttime or the jampacked time that made the quality a little bit questionable. The soup is not that hot and the noodle feels to be undercooked. If it is in any consolation, the serving against the price is perfect – who wouldn’t be filled with carbo-packed dish of 1 cup of rice and noodle soup? All in all, it can get better and I am pressed to visit again to try out the Batchoy once more.


There you have it, another round of food review for you. But just like what we always say even on our previous editions, these reviews are just merely guides, it is strongly suggested to try them out for yourself.
