Captain Food's Top 10 for 2011

2011 has been a great year for me in my food blogging career. I was able to write regularly and share both good pictures and reviews. I'm also glad that I've gained cool followers and friends who share same enthusiasm and excitement with me when it comes to foods.. 

So before saying goodbye to 2011, let me share with you my top 10 food./ drink favorites (considering both taste, and price).

TOP 10 - Korea Garden's Bibimpop
 -this Korean dish is simply lovely and of course healthy.  For me it represents an authentic Korean Bibimpop.  Lastly, I like the fresh ingredients used and the tasty hot red sauce.

TOP 9 -  Omakase's Calamansi Juice

-since I love citrus drinks, this one tops my list. It's delicious, hot, and sour. Perfect for a rainy/ cold weather + chit chat with a loved one.

TOP 8 -  Mac Deli's Vigan Empanada

-bring Vigan into Manila, and here's what you've got. Savor the green Papaya strips and egg inside a crunchy empanada crust!

TOP 7 -  Mr. Kimbob's Bibimbob

-I'm a big fan of Korean food, so it's the reason why 2 of my top 10 are actually Bibimpop! This rendition of Mr. Kimbob introduces meat steak as the meat instead of the usual ground beef.

TOP 6 -  Army Navy's Chicken Burrito

-Burrito is new to my food vocabulary, but Army Navy definitely created a masterpiece that gives full flavor wrapped in a clean white tortilla. Add lots of spices and it's a sure hit!

TOP 5 -  Sonja's Smores

-My love for graham added with creamy marshmallow and soft crust made my knees wobbly. (^_^)

TOP 4 -  KFC Egg Tarts

-These flaky egg tarts are fantastic! Sad thing they're not available here in Philippines and we have to wait for China/ Hongkong trips to buy them.

TOP 3 -  Casa Verde's Brian's Baby Back Ribs
-Give way to Cebu's very own Casa Verde Brian Ribs. Be full with a big slab of ribs plus a tasteful meat! I was able to eat 5 orders of this in my 7 day stay in Cebu--and never got tired of its taste!

-no post yet. wait for it!

TOP 2 - Samurai's  Takoyaki

-Everytime I visit SM grocery, I always order this! Priced at 29 pesos, enjoy the true flavor of Takoyaki. Not like your traditional type with mayo. This one has a yummy red sauce plus a powdery secret which makes it awesome!

TOP  1 - Apartment 1B's Grilled Blue Marlin with Pesto Pasta

-My top 1's quite pricey, but once you get a taste of it , you'll feel its worthiness! I fell in love with Apartment 1b's version of pesto pasta. Al dente texture +  pesto flavor + cheesy topping! On the other hand, the Blue Marlin is juicy and fresh as if it was catched before it was served in your table.
